They're busy playing Bily Joel on the radio and I cannot fathom how I could forget two of his classic songs, viz. Piano Man and Pressure Sad

I set out a year ago to get a list of my fave 100 songs, and get them downloaded. Not an easy task. I have about 500 on my list now, so I have changed it to 1000 of my ultimate fave songs.

Seeing other ppls lists, you find there are songs you LOVED, but forgot about. :haha: Was chatting to someone last nite and he pointed out a few that I had forgot about.

ok, well my list of 10

I like....John Ireland
Summer in Berlin .... Alphaville
Made in Japan ....Alphaville
More than a feeling ..... Boston
Orinaco Flow ...... Enya
Only If ...... Enya (thanks dean)
ANYTHING by Brian Ferry&Roxy music
A good few by OMD
Most of Bread
most of Cat stevens
MANY, MANY MORE.

P.S. Does anyone remember Housewives' Choice? A brilliant CT band from late 70's...Simon Rice on bass If I remember right...I used to have a tape I made at Mowbray Town Hall but it got lost somewhere along the way (Modern Dance, Turned Out Wrong, Flying Duck Theory...)

Indeed. Due to the number of "anything by" and "everything by" and "all by" ones that have appeared I may just leave this as a living thread for people to add to. Besides, not many duplicates have appeared.... makes the job a lot harder. Sad

Oh well, c'est la vie.

You asked a specific question, so look at specific answers....I notice there are a lot of artist who have been mentioned by most of the people who responded....

Maybe if you compile a list of the 5 biggest songs for some of them (a poll?) you can work it out from there...?
