Re: AMF's Top 250 Albums by Women

So it's now theoretically possible that the aforementioned artist could have four albums in the top seven, although I expect it'll be three.

Re: AMF Favorite Books Poll: Voting Thread

I'll submit my own list, just for fun. In Scotland, we like to tell ourselves that we have produced a disproportionate volume of important literature. Unlike the claim that we are more socialistic or community-spirited than other parts of the UK, I think this one might be true, but it's impossible t...

Re: AMF Favorite Books Poll: THE RESULTS

First and foremost well done to Listyguy for doing a great job with a project of this size.

Surprised not to see a single person vote for Paradise Lost or The Canterbury Tales.

Re: AMF Favorite Books Poll: THE RESULTS

A little disappointed to see my own favourite, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, miss out. I didn't take part because there are so many of the big classics I haven't read - I might have been more tempted if the format had been us all ranking the same 100 books in order (as far as each of us were able), ...

Re: France - One song per day.

Went to see 'Sage Femme' (The Midwife), starring Catherine Deneuve, which I quite enjoyed, especially the scene featuring this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVkWgksDZDI Been checking out some of his other songs since then - I admit I hadn't heard of him before, but he looks to have been a ho...

Re: 6000 Songs: Antony and the Johnsons

Since I've been on medication I've been much happier overall, but there are occasions when I miss some of the more extreme emotions. This song is one I arguably got more from in my pre-medication days. I still think it's great, though.

Re: Top 50 Dave Grohl Songs (voting starts now!)

I'd always previously thought of Grohl as a nice guy, but wasn't too impressed at a festival in 2011 when he took verbal swipes at a few of the other headline acts for using computers too much - he relies on technology as well - and did exaggerated guitar moves in front of one of the security staff ...

Hi Romain, I saw Steve Shehan in Paris at the weekend (http://www.newmorning.com/20170415-3654 ... hehan.html) and enjoyed it a lot. Would he be worthy of a mention on this thread?

Re: Top 30 Smiths Songs (results up)

Fun poll, but the results are rougher than I had realised at first.

Looking back over individual lists, only three lists rank The Boy ... the higher of...

This was the first one that stuck out to me, as it does seem like a double standard. Musicians can win Literature awards, but authors can't win Music awards. This is a pretty sturdy ...

Re: Rank the Tracks: Patti Smith's Horses (1975)

I never quite got into this album enough to rank each track, but I always considered Free Money the obvious stand-out (although Gloria, with its audacious opening line, would be a good second).
