Of my top five, two aren't Beatles: Pet Sounds, and Dark Side of the Moon. Sometimes I think back to my favorite music from just a few years ago, and it amazes me how much my tastes have changed. And then it amazes me how little my tastes have changed. It's a weird thought process I go through, to say the least.

A lot of times besides The Beatles I just listen to music. There is some bands or artists I prefer or listen to them more. If I had to pick I guess I'd have to say (in no order):

Green Day American Idiot (came out my freshman year of high school basically kinda got me into rock)

Green Day Dookie

The Who Tommy

The Who Who's Next

Black Sabbath Paranoid

Judas Priest British Steel

Even if I usually don't count any Beatles longplayer among my (unstable) Top Five , there's definitely no other pop performer with a full dozen studio LPs in my Top 200.

(And Rubber Soul -thru-Abbey Road albums do climb into the Top 10 regularly. The process of constantly re-ranking is eternal! blue-meanie)

That's quite a lot of folk tracks, Ron. Though when it comes to Dylan's bootlegs, outtakes and lives I much prefer "Live 1962-1966 - Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections".

I do like a folk song, @CakeMaestor!!!! ahdn_john_08_gif

While I like Live 1962-1966 - Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections, having all the 50th Anniversary sets it's compiled from, I'd come up with a different 2CD set of highlights from those 66 discs every time I tried.

Difficult one for me, my taste can change in an hour depending on mood, activity, etc. 
I attempted to make my top album list but just can’t compare different pieces to my likings, let alone sans Beatles.

I actually made a handy dandy album chart awhile back on topstersunknown-1.pngImage Enlarger

So the non Beatles albums in my top 5 are Buffalo Springfield's Last Time Around and Nick Drake's Pink Moon.

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Those charts are so aesthetically pleasing! I should probably make one to stare at.

I think the non-Beatles albums in my top 5 are Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies and The Velvet Underground and Nico by The Velvet Underground. Though they could also be Ziggy Stardust by Bowie or The Wall by Pink Floyd, depending on my mood.

Some awesome picks there - particularly Sonic Youth, Joni, Janelle Monae, Orpheus, Alvvays and Mount Eerie heartheart

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Love the chart, Kaniffee! 

I think I have one made for my favorite movies, but I have yet to do a one for albums.

Didn't even notice The 'Mats either. 

Here's the first top 42 chart I've made in a few months, it's basically my most listened albums since about October.

Here is another metric you can use for me.  A couple of caveats though, This is only for my laptop and even then only for a couple of apps (Winamp and iTunes). I use Media Monkey and FooBar2000 too. Ironically I barely use Spotify anymore. 

Dingle Lad's (a.k.a ilikespotify) All Time Album Scrobble List

Don't despair over the lack of Beatles. I've got my various Beatle albums minutely categorized. For example, Did you know there are 9 different permutations of Rubber Soul that EMI has released on CD?

Dingle Lad's (a.k.a. ilikespotify) All Time Artists Scrobble List

I might as well show you the Tracks one as well. A lot of great music there, Ironically She's A Woman doesn't rank that highly on my on my Beatle favorites list.

Last FM can really tell you a lot about your listening habits. Say what you want about Digital Privacy, but believe me this information would be compiled anyway.
