hey people

I have been making music since I was 9 and have a varied music taste. I generally don't as "what music are you into" to someone I meet because it's not really the right question. I think "what are your favourite artists" or "what are your favourite tunes"?

Genres are a very tepid way of saying what music you like. So I have spent a long time working out my Top100 tracks/songs/composition. It changes over time, I will re-discover a tune I thought was "alright" then come to realise it's actually AWESOME.

The list below is alphabetical, but you will come across ones that aren't, which are the ones I have added.

If anyone has done this or think they could do this, feel free to post below because you can edit your posts down the line.

I think a list like this is the best way to show people what music you REALLY do like.

with that much time to compile a list of 100 you must be a student :-)

beware though the music snob police patrol this very forum so expect some ridicule on your selections :-)

So I have spent a long time working out my Top100 singles.

1 A Day In The Life - The Beatles

Was never a single!

EDIT: Applies to much of the list. You DO know what a "single" is, don't you? or did you just mean "tracks"?

the numbers is purely to show there is 100, and to make sure I only put 100. Just to make sure someone doesn't have a go saying I put 99 or 101.

Music is down to personal preference, not one person in the whole world will have the same top100 as me, the point is that I believe this is the BEST way of showing someone what music you truly like.

If someone asks me what music I like, I generally will reel of this list, or just hand them my ipod shuffle with them all on.

A person to avoid at parties then?

I suppose I should have put a smiley at the end of it. More of a tongue in cheek comment.

:P

Bowie, Hendrix and The Beatles are all good places to start. If you like the Beach Boys I emplore you to listen to Dennis Wilson.

Personally, I would've added Faith No More, Love, The Band, Dylan, John Martyn, Anticon, They Might Be Giants...and many others to that list.

Variety is what you want!

it's the spice of life, especially where music is concerned. I will go as far to say I don't like a tune at all, but the melody of the vocals is pretty cool. So I will dislike a tune overall but like small aspects of it a lot.
