Thread: Do you have a top ten?

    Do you have a top ten?

    Greetings.

    I thought we could start a thread where you can list your ten favorites of anything you want.

    Basically use this thread to list your top ten of anything be it music, books, movies, what have you.

    If you don't have atop ten, you can do a top five, or conversely, a top twenty or more.

    List as many top tens as you want on as many posts as you need (long as you don't repeat of course)

    I think knowing what others like is a way to know each other better, right?


    Anyway, I'll start with my top ten musicians


    1) The Beatles
    2) R.E.M.
    3) David Bowie
    4) The Kinks
    5) The Byrds
    6) Elvis Costello
    7) The Who
    8 The Rolling Stones
    9) The Doors
    10) The Velvet Underground

    I... really can't post any top lists, there would be too many of them...

    In music, I listen literally everything except country and heavy metal. Give me pop, rock, punk, ska, blues, jazz, dance, latino, give me Sinatra, Chris Rea and Dean Martin for that sentimental sound and I'm happy.

    In literature give me anything science related, crime, Sci Fi, fantasy, comedy, now and then some love story. I don't read non fiction (pop science is something else).

    In movies give me a psychological thriller, or just thriller, comedy, Sci Fi, action... Give me De Niro, Pacino, but give me Cary Grant and Paul Newman too. "Silence of the Lambs" is one of my favorite movies.

    In writing, I find myself writing crime, Sci Fi, fantasy, comedy (do you see the pattern? ). Now you know everything!

    Films:

    10. Man with the Golden Gun
    9. Blade Runner
    8. First Blood
    7. Apocalypse Now
    6. Star Trek: First Contact
    5. Star Trek: Wrath of Khan
    4. Alien
    3. The Thing
    2. Escape From L.A.
    1. Escape From New York

    A very eclectic list, as I look at it. With many similar titles bunched together. And a dominating show from Mr. John Carpenter and Mr. Kurt Russell. Honestly, I just consider EfNY and EfLA to be the same movie, as the plots are near identical. One is just more of a thriller (NY) and the other is more of an action piece (LA). Like... shades of the same film in slightly differing genres. Either way, they're without a doubt the most I've ever enjoyed/watched a movie.

    Shoutouts go to Empire Strikes Back, all of the other Rambo and Expendables films, and anything starring Arnold Schwarzenegger carrying large weapons.

    Top 10 books, I couldn't do. Too many vying for the middle and later slots, but I'd easily say my top five:

    5. Pick any Asimov short story collection. Seriously. Any.
    4. Fahrenheit 451 -- Ray Bradbury
    3. Dune -- Frank Herbert
    2. Starship Troopers -- Robert A. Heinlein
    1. Planet of the Damned -- Harry Harrison (Very recently took the top slot; might be dethroned the more I think about it, but I really loved this book. Nothing special, just classic sci-fi fun).

    we do have a lot in common MrM.

    Would you believe, my second concert was 1977 (I was 15), at the Fabulous Fox. Headliner was the Kinks and the two opening bands were unknowns: Blondie & Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, (1978 they both hit big, Blondie with Heart of Glass & Tom Petty when Breakdown hit top 40 here in the US). Talk about AMAZING... I rushed to the nearest record store and bought my first Blondie & Tom Petty albums I always felt that my 'second' concert choice was enough to make up for my 'first' concert (The Osmonds...I was 12. LOL)

    Anyway, I'll start with my top ten musicians


    1) The Beatles
    2) R.E.M.
    3) David Bowie
    4) The Kinks
    5) The Byrds
    6) Elvis Costello
    7) The Who
    8 The Rolling Stones
    9) The Doors
    10) The Velvet Underground

    Don't worry. My wife, the punker girl in love with all things rebel rock from The Ramones to AFI? Her first concert was Aaron Carter. And she still hears about this from her husband EVERY time we go to a concert.

    "So, babe, how did Iron Maiden compare to Aaron Carter?"

    "Shut UP."

    I will say, the greatest day in my life of experiencing music? September 08, 2013. Megadeth (my number 2 band) opened for Iron Maiden (the world's greatest band). Both artists played my favorite song by them, Megadeth with "Hangar 18" and Iron Maiden with "Moonchild".
