Is this the right forum for mentioning Aysha Brough ?

Only if someone finally gets round to spelling her name correctly.
Actually, I originally got round to spelling her name correctly (unless Wikipedia and Facebook are also wrong) ;)

More top tens, and less kibbitzing, please? <giggle>

Wikipedia, wrong? Perish the thought

Actually, it gets the spelling wrong a couple of times, then goes back to getting it right again. Facebook gets it wrong because it lifts the text uncorrected from Wikipedia...

Steve Hackett - Spectral Mornings

Genesis - Firth of Fifth

I always think any top 5/10/100 list is really difficult, perhaps moreso with music than anything else because it's so mood dependant. Some days you'll be up for some hard rock while others you may be in the mood for classical. I guess it's the tracks that you can go back to time and time again that should stand out. Then of course you have that highbrow attitude come in where you couldn't possibly put down Buck's Fizz's "Making your mind up" for fear of embarrassment! (Actually in thinking about it I'd probably put the Bee Gee's "Staying Alive" in my top 10 as I still think it's a masterful piece of music making that works 30+ years on!)

One rule that should always be in force is nothing from the last 5-10 years should be applicable. How often do you see these kinds of lists topped by the likes of "Titanic" being voted number one film of all time because it was popular at the time the list was made. Things that are fresh in your memory will always stand out.

Anyway, I'm probably just skirting the issue because I can't decide on a definite top 10, and that there would be some very low-brow choices in there! :D I think maybe best albums is easier as many are disappointing aside from a few tracks. The Black Crowes' "Southern Harmony and Musical Companion" is still probably my number one album for being enjoyable all the way through though...

the record spot

They change all the time, so it's never a fixed 10. Still, for now in no particular order...

Mad Man Moon - Genesis

Lost for Words - Pink Floyd

Magic - Olivia Newton-John

It'll Be Me - Tom Jones/Jools Holland

Nine Times Out of Ten - Cliff Richard

Think It Over - Buddy Holly

Thunder On The Mountain - Bob Dylan

Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Dreaming - Blondie

Starship Trooper - Yes

City to City - Gerry Rafferty

...that's this week's...!
