Default Inspired by Barnabas's Movie Thread - Favorite Songs/Albums

The movie thread is great fun! Now how about our musical tastes?

I'm going to start with my top 10 albums, and also my top 10 songs - again, no particular order

1. Steely Dan, The Royal Scam (I could make a whole list of just Steely Dan favorites)
2. Paul Simon, Rhythm of the Saints
3. Sting, Nothing Like the Sun
4. Seal (the first album he released)
5. Mouth Music, Mo-di
6. Gerry Rafferty, City to City
7. Angelique Kidjo, Fifa
8. Peter Gabriel, Shaking the Tree
9. Pink Floyd, The Wall
10. The Cars, Candy-O

Songs (not on the above albums):

1. Warren Zevon, Werewolves of London
2. Steely Dan, Rikki Don't Lose That Number
3. Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata
4. Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here
5. The Cars, Let the Good Times Roll
6. Pharrell, Happy
7. Daft Punk, Get Lucky
8. Goldfish, Fort Knox
9. The Beatles, almost anything, but especially Love Me Do
10. Ozomatli, Magnolia Soul

I don't have many dislikes...but I've never been able to warm up to Bob Dylan or Neil Young. I'm a trained singer, and I find their vocals grating.

Gosh, I feel like I've bared my soul! I'll be interested to see everyone's lists

Top 10 albums... (and probably in this order)
1.) Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus
2.) Pink Floyd - The Division Bell
3.) Led Zeppelin - III
4.) Foo Fighters - One by One
5.) Bruce Springsteen - Born in the USA
6.) The Beatles - Abbey Road
7.) The Rolling Stones - It's Only Rock 'n Roll
8.) Led Zeppelin IV (aka ZOSO)
9.) Eagles - Hotel California
10.) Aerosmith - Rocks

Top 10 songs? That's even harder... here goes (and again this is the order {today})
1.) Coming Back to Life - by Pink Floyd
2.) Times Like These - by Foo Fighters
3.) Fat Man in the Bathtub - (live version on Little Feat's Waiting for Columbus album)
4.) Choctaw Bingo - (studio version) by James McMurtry
5.) Help Me Up - by Eric Clapton
6.) Here Comes the Sun - by The Beatles
7.) Slow Turning - by John Hiatt
8.) Keep the Car Runnin' - by Arcade Fire
9.) Johnny Ace is Dead - by Dave Alvin
10.) That's the Way - by Led Zeppelin
Honorable Mentions would include Eminence Front by The Who, No Excuses by Alice in Chains... and I might as well stop there as it would go on and on.

I'm starting to hear crickets Barnabas...I think we might be the only two on this one! I think your list is a lot more sophisticated than mine Two years ago, I actually got to see Roger Waters perform The Wall in London...and David Gilmour made a surprise appearance on Comfortably Numb! It was amazing. Roger Waters was like 68 years old, and he sounded like it was yesterday

Others may drift in. This is a thread that requires a little thought and preparation.

Thanks for the beautiful playlist, Ban! Except for Subotnik's "the bull" it is stunning in its beauty and diversity. It may be hard to believe, but I played a few of them on the piano in my long-ago past. Even won a state-wide music competition with one, a million years ago.
Thank you so much for sharing.
