 TOP 5's

I remember in the old days of the soapbox we'd always have lists being posted, Horizen & JP loved a pointless list. I thought I'd keep it to 5 because we are old and lazy

So here post your top 5's of anything. Songs about death, records by Stevie Wonder. top 5 musicians called Phil.

top 5 Bowie records

01: Station to Station
02: Blackstar
03: Low
04: Lodger
05: Aladdin Sane

I wondered at the time if Bowie's death had influenced by love of Blackstar to a degree. Even a few years on it's still impossible to listen to it without thinking about the fact Bowie knew his days were numbered but it still sounds so incredible to my ears. I really do think it's a bloody masterpiece.

Top 5 musician moustaches

01: Lee Hazlewood
02: the bloke from sparks
03: Grinderman era Nick Cave
04: Freddie Marcury
05: Barny

The Head on the Door
Disintegration
Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me
Wish
Pornography

I'd go like that, though I prefer the poppier side to the cure rather than the harsh moody gothy stuff

the head on the door
disintegration

I've started listening to The Head On The Door, Disintegration and Kiss Me x3. I'd do a top5 songs, but the only weird choice at the moment would be The End Of The World, which I seriously love.

Anyway, my 5 favourite moments of Trash by the New York Dolls:
- The unhinged Traaeeeissh backing vocals.
- "And please don't ask me if I love you" + the first time the lead guitar enters with that lick.
- The bouncing bass that goes along with the marching drums, EVERY SINGLE TIME.
- The ghostly and soft "ooh ooh oooh" vocals that shouldn't probably work but they do.
- When after some minutes where nothing new really happens, it reaches the climax basically creating The Ramones.*

*Then it goes back to the start again with the additional Tra-ya-ya-ya backings, which would be the top6 moment.

Chrissie, have you read Steve Hanleys 'The Big Midweek'? It's the definitive voice on the Fall, I think.

My list should have included 'The True Adventures of The Rolling Stones' by Stanley Booth. It's an incredible book. Written by a journalist who was on tour with them across America in 1969. Took him 10 years to write, apparently. You'd rate it, Karl.

That is an absolute motherfucker of a book.

(Bizarre aside: my copy was originally an Ebook in ms word (?!) format, and it required some format changes to read on a kindle, not all of which took. For years, I thought he had a trumpeter friend he nicknamed Dark Terry. Only years later, did I discover that it was in fact *clark* Terry, whoops.
