I usually hum and ha when trying to contribute to lists here, but I woke up this morning feeling all decisive so I thought I would get this down quick.  As noted in other threads I like all sorts of music; including having almost all of the works of Beethoven (and I have a complete Mozart set), so it's not just pop/rock etc.  However, I do have pretty much the complete works of my top 10 artists on CD now so here are my current favourites:

1    The Beatles            Revolver
2    Neil Young             Greendale
3    Bruce Springsteen    Born To Run
4    Mike Oldfield           Amarok
5    Bob Dylan              Highway 61 Revisited
6    ELO                      El Dorado
7    U2                       The Joshua Tree
8    Pink Floyd              Wish You Were Here
9    Pearl Jam              Backspacer
10  Madonna               Like A Prayer

I still have a number of albums to listen to, and no doubt my tastes will change by lunch time, but this is not bad for now.

 

[EDIT] My favourite 10 artists and my favourite album from each :)

Alright. I assumed there was some specific rule given that you didn't repeat any artists.

Oh - possibly - but my search skills are rubbish.  Apologies in advance for when AG points out how obvious it was :)

^ Thanks - some interesting selections there.  I quite like some of those albums though I suspect they are not on most people's lists for those artists.  Beatles For Sale and Sometime In New York City have had some interesting threads here.

Beatles - currently Revolver
Japan - Tin Drum
Duran Duran - Big Thing
Tears for Fears - Raoul and the Kings of Spain
Oingo Boingo - Boingo
Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
Paul Young - Other Voices
The Carpenters - The Singles: 1969–1973
Lou Rawls - When You Hear Lou, You've Heard It All
India Arie - Acoustic Soul

Really hard list to put together, as my Top 20 would be easier to list (Alice in Chains, Sting, The Bird and the Bee and a singer-songwriter named Tony Lucca would be on there). Plus I had to leave out the solo outputs.

^ Yes, I left out the solo years as well - but figured Beatles were there already.  Good to see another mention for Revolver :)

I have so many artists I like sitting on a tier just below these ten; including people like The Cars, Roxy Music, Yes, Genesis, The Stones, The Who, Led Zep, Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, The Kinks; on it goes.

I am just now reading this thread. Call me a bad mod. I admit I often skip threads about rankings, over- and under-rated, best/worst, etc. Now, no one take that as a license to go crazy in one of those types of threads. :lol:  @Joe or @Zig  may be watching a-hard-days-night-john-3.

So, if someone has a good idea of where these posts should be moved, send me a link and I will do my duty.

Also, in future, if there is a thread you see pop up that perhaps already has a nice, established thread, @ me or send me a PM. If you can find the link, that would be helpful, but if you just have a general idea, I'll do some searching.

Maybe we should create a thread titled "Your Top 10 Top 10 Lists". Lord knows we have enough of 'em.blue-meanie

People seem to like these things, so I have no objection. One of the ideas befhind this Forum is to have fun. Maybe if we created a category called Top 10 Lists. Then we could toss all of the related threads into it. I don't have the motivation to do this, but perhaps our resident techie, AG could do it. Hmm? Perhaps?
