    Talking MUSTY'S TOP 100 MUSICAL ARTISTS- EVER!

    Preface:




    Now I’m really going to get some flak on this thread because everybody has a different top 100. Well this is mine. Are these the greatest musical artists ever? Well, some of them are certainly. At least these are the greatest musical artists in my book, so I list them one by one, mainly because I need the post count I’ll also list an index in the second post so you can keep up with the many pages I’m sure this thread will have between my hundred artist entries and the people who scream, “How dare you rank Guns n Roses at only number 84?”. So I cover quite a few genres here but mostly rock in all fairness, especially sixties and punk/new wave , so be gentle with me you metalheads out there



    ( Actually I didn’t rank Guns n Roses at all )

    Aw, I hate that band, "Numbered 100 to one in descending order". They're shit. Why do you have them in the list at all?
    I'm with you here: can you imagine what people would think of MY top 100, were I to attempt such a thing? Hmmm. No, no! Don't even think about it, Trollheart! You got too many projects in hand already. But maybe ... I said NO!

    Hey, at least this isn't Music Banter!
    Come away, human child to the waters and the wild
    With a faery hand in hand.

    I am embarrassed to say that I would struggle to think of 100 different artists yet alone rank them. Fair play to you, Musty!

    100. LESLEY GORE





    Major era: 1963-1967
    Main Labels: Mercury

    Best Albums: Girl Talk, I’ll Cry If I Want To

    Best Songs: Maybe I Know, You Don’t Own Me, I Don’t Want To Be a Loser, California Nights

    Lesley Gore was a hot teen attraction in the mid sixties. She recorded songs of anger and defiance while straddling the line between love and independence. It was an unusual stance for a pop artist in 1963 to be sure. She scored a huge hit in 1963 with It’s My Party and continued a string of quality singles through 1965 and again in 1967 with California Nights. After her career waned, she spent the rest of her years acting and performing in nightclubs for the most part, never really disappearing from the public eye.

    Why do I like this artist? : Well, as Lou Grant would say, she’s got spunk. Also, she recorded some of the catchiest songs of the pop mid sixties. She didn’t seem to suffer fools and she seemed to keep her own independence in the face of dealing with the controlling music industry interests that a lot of artists of the day had to contend with.

    Wasn't that song "It's My Party" covered and made a big hit in the 1980s I think by Dave Stewart and, um, don't remember, some female singer? I remember my sister used to play it almost non-stop; drove me mad.

    Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin. I wasn't too impressed with it to be honest.

    If I ever compiled a list it would be tough to do since it would cover a dozen genres.
    I listen to a lotta types of music.
    By my reckoning, music is like eating at a buffet.
    You wouldn;t go to a Smorgasbord and just eat meatloaf.
    Hell no! You'd try everything and go back for seconds and 3rds of the things you liked.
    Music is no different.


    On my music list you'd see Billie Holiday facing off against The Beatles, CDB, Bob Marley, Rogers & Hamerstein, Louie Armstrong, Etta, Ella, Haggard, Aretha, Sinatra, Mozart, Cole, Benny, Dinah Washington, Chuck Berry....
    When I was a kid, folks in my neighborhood were always like "Do you like country or rock?"
    But I was the kid saying "Can't I like 'em both?"

    Oh geeez...I forgot Nina and Glen Miller and Doris and Ray, and both Joplins....
    Yeah, it'd be a messy list.
    Times have never been better for music lovers. We have so much media right at our fingertips these days.
