The Big 50 ~ List your 10 favourite albums from each decade, 60's to now!
 
We can do this in a couple of different ways to make it more interesting:

List your 10 favourites each from 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's but every single year of the decade does not need to be represented.

OR

List your 10 favourites from 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's but every single year of the decade needs to be represented.

Artists may be repeated as many times as you like.


Btw, I said Big 50 but if you don't want to bother with too many decades, you can also simply pick one decade, I guess your favourite, and list your personal Top 10.

Have fun! I'll post mine a bit later.


Also, just so we are all on the same page...

60's = 1960 - 69
70's = 1970 - 79

and so on.

I already had the list elsewhere, a bit out of date though forgot to add in Broken Social Scene's self titled sorry Bloc Party

Yup ( ) has always been a personal favourite of mine since I first heard it, Takk... is great though several songs on it are the reason I got into Sigur Rós

Not in the U.S., buddy. It was Rolling Stones' #1 album of the 80's and is widely considered to be from that decade. You think you can pull rank on them?

Imperor 10-27-2009 10:35 PM

I thought this was America. Huh? Isn't this America? I'm sorry, I thought this was America.

I'm not doing the Naughts as they're not over yet.

I had the hardest time with the 70's and the 90's. I probably could have included Cockropa and Poppycock in the latter list but I felt it would be a bit too boring.

*The version I have includes the bonus Fairfax High, a second full-length disc of new material. I probably wouldn't include just the album itself on this list.

How cute. In the end, you really are a BIG FAN.

Nice to see your inclusion of Oh Mercy.

Tumbleweed Connection is really, really high on my all time list. I can't get enough of it.

Sure I'm a big fan. Wouldn't be here if I wasn't. But only of those two particular decades. I've never really wavered from my liking their 80s and 90s stuff, the latter being my favorite era of any band EVAR.

And there was no way I was leaving Oh Mercy off.

lazarus 10-27-2009 11:38 PM

I'm going to feel weird about putting No Net on my 00's list, which is a likelihood. I think much of it can go toe-to-toe with the best stuff I've heard this decade, but I doubt any other album on the list will have the glaring flaws that are Stand Up Referee and Cock Crazy.

Of course, I'll be busy getting reamed for including Atomic Serve, so maybe no one will notice.

If you shout... 10-27-2009 11:44 PM

I wish I had the patience to write this stuff up. Suffice to say that the '60s would have all the relevant Velvets releases, along with as many Beatles albums as would fit, and that the Talking Heads, SFA, and especially Brian Eno would in later decades more than likely be overrepresented. I take these kinds of things way too seriously, ultimately, and writing up a list or lists becomes physically grueling. Ugh. I shudder at so much as the thought. Kudos to the lot of you.

I spent way too much time making my top 50 list in general, and I spend ridiculous amounts of time tweaking it (The file is literally always open on my computer) which is the only reason I came up with a list for this so quickly. Now I find myself going well out of my way to do the best album of each year list and it's not because I have nothing better to do, but that that something better to do is homework.

(right, YLB?)

It was fucking great. Listened to it on my trip from Tallahasee to Orlando, so I can't really remember which tracks were from the album, Bootleg series and other sources... but it all sounded fantastic together and an improvement on the original release.

I take these kinds of things way too seriously, ultimately, and writing up a list or lists becomes physically grueling. Ugh. I shudder at so much as the thought. Kudos to the lot of you.

Dude, I didn't think this would be too hard as it is only 10 from each decade.

Or just pick your fav decade!

It's been fun reading all your lists. Will post mine soon. Have to go thru my itunes by year. lol.

What's your R&H set look like?

Oh hell yes. Goodbye "Stand Up Comedy," "Crazy Tonight," and "White as Snow."

lazarus 10-28-2009 05:54 PM

White as Talcum stays, fool. It's in keeping with the album's original concept, and certainly not a concession to the mainstream.

LMP 10-28-2009 05:56 PM

It's "Come O Come Emmanuel," except boring as hell. Sure it may fit with the concept, but I'm not particularly fond of it.

lazarus 10-28-2009 06:00 PM

There's nothing wrong with taking a traditional melody and composing a new lyric for it. Dylan's done this many times.

I just think it's a very good example of Boner stepping outside his comfort zone as a writer, and the vocal is very strong. Musically it's not very interesting, but it's not offensive like the other two.

LMP 10-28-2009 06:08 PM

Right, it's not a bad song by any means and probably shouldn't be lumped with those two tracks, I'm just not too high on it right now. There's always a track or two that I come around on down the line and "Snow" could be one of them.

GirlsAloudFan 10-28-2009 06:19 PM

Oh God, White As Snow. I probably haven't listened to that song since about a month after the album leaked.

"Fuse Your Illusion" is a great name for that album reimagining.

Zoots 10-28-2009 06:23 PM

UYI-I deserved to be on that list but there was no room left. :crazy:

I've toyed with this the most. Because it's more a collection of songs than an album with a coherent theme or song, arrangements can tend to feel arbitrary, and none ever seem to feel completely right.

I've gone and included A Room At The Outbreak Whoretel and Hallelujah (Here They Come On Me). The former is a bit too similar to Cockmoon 269 in that they have jagged guitar work and the backup singers, but it's still a good track. The latter is a pop gem that really should have been on the album. Shriveled and Cold was left off because it was written even before the Joshua Cock sessions, if I'm not mistaken.

Normally I wouldn't open with such an abrupt pop song like Desire (Cock), but for this type of stripped-down rock and roll affair, it probably represents the collection better than anything else. I attempted to give Hardland a more prominent spot, as it's widely considered to be one of the best songs on there. And following it up with Angel makes a pretty great one-two punch, even if it might seem too obvious because they're the most popular songs on here.

I'd also tend to have a bigger penultimate track, but because All I Want Is Cock is an epic itself, it's better to have a shorter song before it. Plus, Cock Part II sticks out from the rest of the set, so better to bury it on side two. I actually like the jarring transition between it and the next song, like Revolution 9 into Good Night.


SIDE ONE
1. Desire (Cock)
2. Angel of Hardcourt
3. Hardland
4. Cockmoon 269
5. Lance's Mom's Strand
6. Hallelujah (Here They Come On Me)

SIDE TWO
7. When Cock Comes to Town
8. Love Racquet Me
9. A Room At The Outbreak Whoretel
10. Cock Part II
11. All I Want Is Cock

phillyfan26 10-28-2009 06:52 PM

"I like it." - The Blum

LMP 10-28-2009 06:52 PM

Nice. Those are the same tracks I'd include, too, but could never peg down an order. I've flirted with the idea of including "Everlasting Love" or "Dancing Barefoot," but they're both covers if I'm not mistaken; I know the latter definitely is.

lazarus 10-28-2009 07:05 PM

They both are.

And I've gone through at least five different orders. As I've said, none of them ever feel "right". I thought about flipping When Cock Comes To Town and Hallelujah, but the transition between Lance's Mom's Strand and the former probably cheapens Hedge's heartfelt song.

LMP 10-28-2009 07:10 PM

Yeah, I'd keep it as is.

I've thought about pairing "Hawkmoon" and "God Part II" as the opening combo of Side 2, but it's still strange.

bono_212 10-28-2009 10:49 PM

  4. The Cure - Disintegration
  5. Peter Gabriel - 4/Security

  7. Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever
  8. The Cure - Head on the Door
  9. Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A.
  10. Big Country - The Crossing
  11. John Mellencamp - The Lonesome Jubilee
  12. Echo & the Bunnymen - Ocean Rain
  13. Genesis - Invisible Touch
  14. John Mellencamp - Scarecrow
  15. Peter Gabriel - So
  16. Crowded House - Crowded House
  17. Bruce Springsteen - Tunnel of Love
  18. Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel 3
  19. The Cure - Pornography
