Have you heard the version of Echoes from Dave Gilmour Live in Gdansk?
If I could I would take all my albums with me. Last count about 650 inc CD's, vinyl and cassettes. Even had some reel to reel at one stage plus all the downloads.

Heard Comfortably a couple of times without Mr Gilmour - it's not the same. Saw Australian Pink Floyd perform The Wall - they were very good and they have a massive following. In fact so good, going back to see them again. They've got all the inflatables and everything.
 
OK here goes...

Top songs:

I'll be Around: Detroit Spinners
Super Lady: Luther Vandross
Million Dollar Bill: Whitney Houston
Don't Worry Baby: The Beach Boys
White Knuckle Ride: Jamiroquai

In terms of an album, basically anything of Jamiroquai's... Their best yet is their current one, "Rock Dust Light Star". But it's very difficult to pick just one!!
 
Out in the Park - Sarah Slean
Dare to Live - Andrea Bocellia & Laura Pausini
Sunshine of your Love - Cream
Tainted Love - Imelda May
Last Years War - Sarah Slean

Aussie Pink Floyd

Was at the Aussie Pink Floyd Concert last night. They rocked. The guy doing the Comfortably Numb solo got it licked. Note perfect. Big inflatable kangeroo as a special guest. Second half of the concert - the background film was 3D and we all had 3D specs handed out. Played all the Floyd favourites and some early stuff. Don't know what people think about cover bands but Aussie Floyd are brilliant in their own right. Light show fantastic. If you're a Floyd fan - go and see them. You won't be disappointed. :-D

I'm bored whilst waiting for my lunch to ping in the microwave, so I thought I'd add my tuppence:

TOP 5 (very very hard to decide!)

Martha Reeves and the Vandellas - Dancing in the Street (One of THE best party songs, guaranteed to get everyone dancing)

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - Jungleland (The song which turned me from a teenybopper in to a proper music fan. I was 13 and will never forget watching "Live in NYC" on TV, chin on the floor as Clarence Clemens did his solo. Never looked back.)

Saint-Saens - The Swan (Remember listening to this as a child, and still think it's beautiful.)

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - The River (The other song which converted me into a proper music fan. Gives me shivers. This is, in my opinion, the BEST live version of the song, ever.)

Vaughan Williams - The Greensleeves Suite (Pretentious perhaps, but still some of the loveliest music around. A little slice of England. To be honest, anything by Vaughan Williams is great...)

BEST ALBUM/CD

Christ, how do you decide?! I think I'll have to go for CD I enjoy most every time I listen to it. Won't come as a surprise if you look at my Top 5 =-)

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - Live in NYC (2001)
 
Right now?

Everything has changed - Taylor Swift ft Ed Sheeran
22 - Taylor Swift
Figure 8 - Ellie Goulding
