Music Note My personal top fifty!

It's very difficult for a music fan to put together a list of his very favourite tunes of all time. I put some effort into the task though and came up with this list:

2. Behind Blue Eyes - Who

3. Gloria - Shadows of Knight

4. Light My Fire - Doors

5. I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night - Electric Prunes

6. House of the Rising Sun - Animals

7. Paint It Black - Rolling Stones

8. Hard Day's Night - Beatles

9. Do Wah Diddy Diddy - Manfred Mann

10. 96 Tears - ? & the Mysterians

11. Heart Full of Soul - Yardbirds

12. Shakin' All Over - Guess Who

13. Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun - Pink Floyd

14. Sound of Silence (electrified version) - Simon & Garfunkel

15. When I Was Young - Animals

16. When the Music's Over - Doors

17. Lies - Knickerbockers

18. Time Won't Let Me - Outsiders

19. She's Not There - Zombies

20. Eve of Destruction - Barry McGuire

21. When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin

22. Stray Cat Blues - Rolling Stones

23. Save the Last Dance for Me - Drifters

24. Cross-Eyed Mary - Jethro Tull

25. Rebel Rebel - David Bowie

26. Waiting for the Sun - Doors

27. It's My Life - Animals

28. White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane

29. Clapping Song - Shirley Ellis

30. All Day and All of the Night - Kinks

31. Will You Love Me Tomorrow? - Crystals

32. Iko Iko - Dixie Cups

33. California Dreaming - Mamas & the Papas

34. White Room - Cream

35. Secret Agent Man - Johnny Rivers

36. No Milk Today - Herman's Hermits

37. In the Flesh - Blondie

38. In My Life - Beatles

39. I'd Rather Go Blind - Chicken Shack (with Peter Green)

40. Nobody But Me - Human Beinz

41. I'm Not Like Everybody Else (live version) - Kinks

42. Stand by Me - Ben E. King

43. Tell Him - Exciters

44. Society's Child - Janis Ian

45. Mixed Emotions - Rolling Stones

46. Happy Jack - Who

47. Man of the World - (Peter Green's) Fleetwood Mac

48. Cleo's Mood - Junior Walker & the All Stars

49. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark - Robert Cray Band

50. I Can't Control Myself - Troggs

Nicely done. I'd be hard pressed to come up with a list like that and if I did, it'd be totally different in a year or two.

Re: My personal top fifty!

That's a pretty solid list, I'd say!

I don't know if I could come up with a list of 50 favorite individual songs, but I think I could give a list of my 50 favorite albums. And since your thread title doesn't specify the top fifty what, I think I am going to do just that! Sooooooo... Here's my list which I like to call my Fifty By Fifty (restricting myself to one album per artist):

01. The Beatles ["White Album"] -- The Beatles | 1968

02. Physical Graffiti -- Led Zeppelin | 1975

03. Relayer -- Yes | 1974

04. Quadrophenia -- The Who | 1973

05. Aladdin Sane -- David Bowie | 1973

06. Use Your Illusion I & II -- Guns N' Roses | 1991

07. Badmotorfinger -- Soundgarden | 1991

08. Gold Against The Soul -- Manic Street Preachers | 1993

Here just a year later I'd already be inclined to make certain modifications to my list although they wouldn't be wholesale changes.

Let's just say that our tastes in albums differs entirely. The White Album is the Beatles' album that I like the least.

I may try to put together a similar list of LPs now myself, but I'd consider only two of the LPs on your list for my own.
