That song is hauntingly beautiful. And, holy Bono intonation! One listen, and it's clear as day that he's been drawing heavily from that band for years...I've only heard two Echo albums, but they impressed me immediately.

I drove with my family to Bonavista the other day and had Ocean Rain on the CD player. My mother: "I've never heard THIS U2 album before!"

Which Bunnymen albums do you have? And do you want more?

It's so similar to U2, it's scary! Besides Ocean Rain, I just have Heaven Up Here...Over the Wall

I'd love more

Over The Wall is so brilliant! If I were to make a list of my favourite Echo and the Bunnymen songs, it would probably be in the top ten. There's a great live video here:

I can't believe that performance was from 1981...amazing! You can really tell by the crowd how intoxicating it must have been to be there.

I have to say, I'm surprised only two people(including myself) have listed Metallica here. The 80s were the heydey of 'Old-School' Metallica. 'Ride The Lightning', 'Master Of Puppets', and '...And Justice For All' are nearly universally accepted as some of the absolute best metal recordings ever.

I do that with these lists, as well! Sometimes I think about them at work, when I should be thinking about work.

On Duran Duran's website, John says he's been reading a lot of books and relaxing with friends...I think the album's very close now.

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, I FORGOT THE TALKING HEADS.

Well that simply won't do, now will it?

New list:

1. U2
2. Talking Heads
3. Pixies
4. The Clash
5. XTC
6. The Police
7. REM
8. Joy Division/New Order
9. The Smiths
10. The Cure

Tom can go to honorable mention, even though he rules insanely.

I didn't even realize they were touring in the fall! That should be an awesome show, especially with the original lineup. I saw them when I was a kid, but I barely remember it

What I'm saying, is that you have to fly me down to this concert.
