    What's your favourite music?????

    Hi guys,
    I wanna know what music you like...
    If I think your list is rubbish, I'll tell you -- and if I think it's good I'll commend you on your exellent taste in music!

    My top ten albums would be (title - artist):

    1. Gentlemen Take Polaroids - Japan
    2. Secrets Of The Beehive - David Sylvian
    3. Diamond Dogs - David Bowie
    4. Rays And Hail (best of) - Magazine
    5. Head Over Heels - Cocteau Twins
    6. Suede - Suede
    7. Station To Station - David Bowie
    8. In-Sides - Orbital
    9. Strange Times - The Chameleons
    10. The Man Who Sold The World - David Bowie

    My favourite song is Orpheus by David Sylvian - just look at these lyrics...

    Standing firm on this stony ground,
    the wind blows hard pulls these clothes around
    I harbour all the same worries as most,
    the temptations to leave or to give up the ghost
    I wrestle with an outlook on life, that shifts between darkness and shadowy light
    I struggle with words for fear that they'll hear
    but Orpheus sleeps on his back, still dead to the world

    Sunlight falls, my wings open wide
    There's a beauty here I cannot deny
    And bottles that tumble and crash on the stairs
    are just so many people I knew never cared
    Down below on the wreck of the ship are a stronghold of pleasures I couldn't regret
    but the baggage is swallowed up by the tide, as Orpheus keeps to his promise and stays by ny side

    Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
    Understand, these fires never stop
    Believe me, when this joke is tired of laughing
    I will hear the promise of my Orpheus sing

    Sleepers sleep as we row the boat
    just you, the weather and I gave up hope
    But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps
    was fuel for the fire and straw for our backs
    Still the voices have stories to tell of the power struggles in heaven and hell
    But we feel secure against such mighty dreams
    as Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may bring

    Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
    Understand, these fires never stop
    Believe me, when this joke is tired of laughing
    I will hear the promise of my Orpheus sing

    Wonderful, eh? (Clue: the correct answer isn't "no" ! )

    So come on folks...

    Keps, Orpheus is one of my favorites as well. I've been in love with David Sylvian for 15-20 years now. I haven't really listened to his most recent music much, but they don't seem as good as his older stuff.

    I don't have time to make a top ten list right now, but I'll try to do it later.

    Alive for 35 years
    T4/5 complete for 26 years
    Mom for 8 years

    I still throw in Missing Persons Spring Session M when I want to have an early 80´s convulsion. And speaking of convulsions, what about the B-52´s dammit!?! Forget that crack shack stuff, I´m talking the shrill screaching, bee hive hair balancing, Planet Claire stuff that made your parents secretly search your room for the hidden bong (that you were just holding for a friend).
