Why this Top 10?

Post 950

egon

What is it about h2g2's Top Ten bands that got them there? Why do you like them? Why are the great?

The Beatles- timeless classic pop. Not overly intellectually stimulating or emotionally rousing, but among the best pop music there has ever been

Radiohead- sheer unadulterated dirge-like, miserable, depression-inducing bilge. Only decent songs they ever recorded were Creep and Street Spirit. Number 2? Are you sure?

Nirvana-anger mixed with the surprisingly melodic nature of, in particular, the fantastic "Unplugged" album. Spearheaded a musical movement (may not have started it, but were certainly the public face) and recorded the second-best version of Bowie's The Man Who sold the world (not as good as Lulu's)

Pixies- weren't too bad, but I wouldn't say they were among an all time top 10.

Coldplay-Hmm, three good songs and they're in the top 10? Often approach Radiohead in depression stakes.

Dire Straits- Wonderful. the distinctive guitar-picking of Mark Knopfler and the variety of tempos mixed with some all-time classic songs (from the meditative "Brothers In Arms" through the upbeat "Romeo and Juliet" to the downright cheerful "Walk of Life", Knopfler is a genius pure and simple- his habit for crafting songs hasn't abandoned him, either.

U2-Lot of good stuff, mixed with the odd criminally bad idea, but on balance, really rather spiffing. The Joshua Tree album in partyicular is among my top 50, and the much-covered One is wonderful.

Pink Floyd- Hmm. did *some( very good songs (wish you were, money, shine on you crazy diamond, another brick in the wall, careful with that axe eugene) and had some very interesting concepts but were also responsible for much pretentious crap.

Meatloaf- classic pomp-rock merchant. Magnificently overbloewn Jim Steinman rock anthems just aren't the same sunfg by anyoen else. Not only does the Loaf have a good voice, and a cracking selection of tunes, his personality, and the feeling he puts into his songsis just as important. A showman more than a singer.

Muse- you got to be sh*tting me?

The Beatles in DNA's wisdom

Post 956

Semiquaver

The Beatles (to be specific) put a lot of musical ideas into the mainstream that had simply not been there before. As DNA himself put it while reminiscing about his schooldays (or, "...what was going on in the background while I was trying to listen to the Beatles"smiley - winkeye), "I sang in the school choir and knew how to listen for harmony and counterpoint, and it was clear to me that the Beatles were something extraordinarily clever. It bewildered me that no one else could hear it: impossible harmonies and part playing you had never (<italics&gtsmiley - winkeyeheard(</italics&gtsmiley - winkeye in pop songs before." Perfectly put. I thought that "Beatles 1" should have gotten in there, though. It HAS all the good stuff...
