    M2 just reminded me about Urge Overkill and I now have to toss "Emmaline" by Urge Overkill out there.

    Re: Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    After browsing through this thread, and reading people's tastes, I've come to the conclusion that a lot of you are either really strange and demented..... or I'm just getting old.

    I can remember my Dad saying "Beatles? Animals? Monkees? What kind of names are that? In my day it was Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman. Performers weren't ashamed of their names.

    Then I see the names of some of the bands today. It's like they are purposely done to draw attention. And I realize that yes, I am just getting old.

    I worked security (ok, stop laughing) at a Crowded House show at the college I went to in 1989. It was a great show, even the opening band, Chalk Circle, was pretty good. One song that I also thought of adding was "She Went Down to the River."

    One thing that shocked me, I was one of the guys picked to escort the band from dressing room to stage. When we went back to the room we must have got there a touch early and saw them finishing up snorting the pr- show blow. Guess I just didn't expect to see that with Crowded House for some reason.

    Yeah, I saw a lot of things working as usher/security for shows in the early '90s that may or may not surprise people. I don't know if he's still this way, but John Cougar Mellencamp had a lot in common with Red in Chicago, at least in their affinity toward a germ-free environment. I'll never forget the sight of roadies wiping down the stage with buckets of bleach-water before his show and then later stopping young ladies as they ran toward the stage with their panties in hand, thinking "You were just wearing those? He's going to love that!"
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Marquee Moon has been posted by a couple of people, but I am actually surprised it hasn't come up more. Decades old and still, in my mind, possibly the finest song ever recorded.

    Television also stands one of the greatest live bands I've ever seen. Changed my life.

    There's 10... if don't hit send now, I'll change it again.
    Ok, I guess I'm reading this thread more carefully now that my own list is out of the way, and I have to give props to this list. Incubus and Beethoven...literally, Debussy is followed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Awesome.

    I agree with OSUmed on one of these in particular, anyone who has a soul and isn't familiar with Mahler's Fifth Symphony should listen to it, especially the Adagietto movement. It will freaking tear you apart.

    Good call on "I Feel So Good." I also like "Wall of Death" a lot.

    A couple more notes on Richard Thompson:

    - 1952 Vincent Black Lightning is reportedly the most requested song on National Public Radio.

    - Anybody see the movie/documentary "Grizzly Man" that came out a year or two ago? It's the story of Andy Dick going on a roid rage and heading out to nature to protect Alaskan bears from scientists and other bear-loathing nature haters. OK, it's not really Andy Dick, but it reminded me of him. Unfortunately, the wacked out Andy Dick look alike, Timothy Treadway (and his girlfriend), all too predictably end up being midnight snack for some hacked off bears.

    Anyway, Richard Thompson does the soundtrack for the movie. There's an excellent song by cowboy crooner Don Edwards called "Coyotes" on the soundtrack. Check it out if you get a chance.
    "I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."

    Re: Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    Talk about impossible. Here are ten songs that I never change the radio if they come on. My apologies to Andy Gibb, who I wasn't brave enough to list here, even though I just sort of did.

    Red Vines- Aimee Mann
    Only Time Will Tell- Asia
    Secret Garden- Springsteen
    Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters- Elton John
    Everlong- Foo Fighters
    We Belong- Pat Benatar
    Man on the Moon- REM
    Disarm- Smashing Pumpkins
    Chop Suey- System of a Down
    Fast Car- Tracy Chapman

    Re: Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    Lots of great stuff in this thread along with lots of stuff that makes me feel very old and out of touch, i.e. I've never heard of a lot of these songs and/or bands. I was flipping through my iPod (I'm just barely hip enough to own one ) and came up with a list of ten that are either one-hit wonder types or at least are by artists from which I just have one or two songs...kind of one-hit wonders for me personally. Anyway, here goes:

    a-ha - Take On Me
    Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen
    Cal Smith - The Lord Knows I'm Drinkin' (a country classic)
    Talk Talk - It's My Life
    David and David - Welcome to the Boomtown
    Extreme - More Than Words
    Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
    Nena - 99 Luftballons (German version)
    Utopia - Set Me Free
    Donnie Iris - Ah Leah

    Mahler's 5th is the most often performed Mahler symphony and the Adagietto is frequently presented out of program by itself. The finale is the most technically demanding movement and when it is performed well, you have experienced something. I encourage you to listen to all the symphonies chronologically as they reveal Mahler's personal and emotional maturation. Symphonies 6-10 progressively add more counterpoint and polyphony. Number 9 is my favorite.
    If the 5th symphony's adagietto will "freaking tear you apart" than you'd be best to avoid Mahler's Kindertotenlier (Songs on the death of children), Das Lied von der Erde (The first movement, entitled "Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde" - The Drinking Song of Earth's Misery- continually returns to the refrain, Dunkel ist das Leben, ist der Tod - "Dark is life, is death"), and (in my opnion ) his finest piece, "Ich bin der welt abhanden geckommen" - "I have become lost to the world". As you can see from these titles, he was a flag-carrying late-Romantic artist.

    That is an excellent song. I haven't heard it in years. Another of his that I really liked was "Teacher I Need You". I really liked "Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player" and "Honky Chateau".
