  4. Top 5 songs:

    Dire Straits - Private Investigations. Bit cheesy and not my favourite now, but I have liked it for so much for so long now, that it has to be numero uno.
    ACDC - Hells Bells. Likewise.
    Bon Jovi - Dead or Alive - same again.
    U2 - With or WithoutnYou. And again.
    Lennon - Imagine

    Album... Mmmm...

    U2 The Joshua Tree. It's the only one I can think of off the top of my head (except Best ofs) where I can listen to 80% of it with no urge to skip a track.

    Now there's posh, Boyo.

    Didn't know Hillman Imps had MP3 players.

    Whatabout the "Skate Tapes" that EVERY matelot was issued with?

    Fleetwood Mac- Rumours.
    Meatloaf- Bat out of Hell.
    Dire Straits- Brothers In Arms
    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

    Any self-respecting matelot will have been issued with them in "Thomsun" tape format (play once, then self-destruct) bought for a quid in the Gulf states.

    Whilst not necessarily a fan of them, they were always available in great profusion.

    My Favourite albums are all Muse, so I haven't bothered listing them individually as none of my fellow old duffers will have heard of them. Went to see them at MEN Arena last November- superb.

    Oh and there's always these:

    English Rose-The Jam Apologies about the video but it's the only original version I could find -it's a puppet!
    Black boys on mopeds- Sinead O'Connor Politically sensitive but she was at her best then so I don't care!
    Whole lotta Rosie
    War Pigs
    While my guitar gently weeps-Jeff Healey Yes he's playing like a blind man because he is!

    Yes I know I cheated, got to have some perks.

    PS Toejam- feel free to post some crap, I mean modern stuff, I have to listen to it all night so I may as well know some names for it :thumright:

    Did I mention anything by Steve Vai

  14. Das Boot.......U96

    Enter Sandman....Metallica

    Green Manalishi....Fleetwood Mac ( Peter Green era )

    Hang me out to dry.....Cold War Kids

    Babylons Burning.......The Ruts

    ALBUM......Woyaya by OSIBISA .
     
  15. Thomsun Originals, with a free case if you bought 10? The advent of the MP3 has killed off the grat issue album, as it is no longer neccesary to play the same album over and over again on the mess stereo.
    I have to agree with NS about Muse being the best band around at the mo. Black holes is easily the best driving album ever. Unless its really sunny. Then its Legend by Bob Marley.
    BTW, the new Radiohead album is worth a listen for 45p, though I supect you need to listen to it a few times before it really grows on you.
     
  16. Bette Davies Eyes - Kim Carnes
    Cast No Shadow - Oasis
    Children - Robert Miles
    Sail Away - David Gray
    Life on Mars - David Bowie

    Album - Masterplan - OASIS

  18. 99 Red Ballons - no way! Bette Davies Eyes is great to do aerobics too...........honest.......double bluff or not?
