    Okay, let's do this. This has not been easy but...

    1. Summertime (don't care by who, just love the song)
    2. Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say) - Ted Neeley (from Jesus Christ Superstar)
    3. Kentucky Avenue - Tom Waits
    4. Goodbye to Love - Carpenters
    5. Memory - Elaine Paige
    6. More Than a Feeling - Boston
    7. Sketches - Dan Fogelberg
    8. . Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
    9. Who Wants to Live Forever - Queen
    10. Amazing Grace (by anyone)

    So many more I had to leave out. Damn you Musty!!! (shakes fist impotently)
    Come away, human child to the waters and the wild
    With a faery hand in hand.
    For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand. - WB Yeats "The Stolen Child"

    I drink to forget, but I never forget to drink.

    "If the real Jesus Christ were to stand up today
    He'd be gunned down cold by the CIA" - The The, "Armageddon Days Are Here (Again)" - Mind Bomb, 1989


    The most destructive force on the planet is not nukes or global warming...it is the human ego. - Ralph Rotten

    Hey, where's the metal and prog?

    There are several versions of Summertime that I like including Billie Holiday and Big Brother and the Holding Company (Janis Joplin). My favorite version has to be from the Zombies though.

    I'm still working on my top ten (I do have a top five that's etched in stone) but I won't unveil mine until next month, so you'll all just have to wait.

    Oh I know that. It's just that it's been covered so many times, I really don't care who's singing it. I love this song.

    I know: you would have thought it'd be crammed with Maiden, Genesis and Marillion, wouldn't you? But while I love all those bands, I can't honestly say any of their songs (no, not even "Hallowed Be Thy Name"!) would get into my top ten. And they didn't. I'm a little eclectic in my music tastes as you can see, and cutting it down to ten favourites: well, as Professor Frink once said, it's hard...

    "Faster than a laser bullet, louder than an atom bomb!"

    2. Entombed - Left Hand Path
    "May evil drown in its source..."

    3. Bathory - A Fine Day to Die
    "The elder among the men looked deep into the fire and spoke loud with pride. Tomorrow is a fine day to die!"

    4. Deicide - Dead by Dawn
    "Dead by dawn!"

    "Dead by dawn!"

    "Dead by dawn!"

    5. Rainbow - Stargazer
    "See how he glides, why he's lighter than air..."

    6. Dissection - Where Dead Angels Lie
    "The dress is white with crystals of ice, and frozen roses so red. Roses of blood from an innocent soul, on the plain lies an angel dead."

    7. Gorgoroth - Bergtrollets hevn
    *incoherent Norwegian screaming*

    8. King Diamond - The Invisible Guests
    "Cups were rising, oh in thin air! And then emptied on the floor..."

    9. Motorhead - Bad Woman
    "Shoot me down baby, look at you move! I know you ain't gotta thing to lose..."

    And finally:
    10. Zyklon B - Warfare
    "Show no mercy!
    SHOW
    NO
    MERCY!"

    1. Hen - A Hill to Die Upon
    The power of this song is indescribable ... like being haunted, but with holy things.
    ~
    O sinners, let us go down,
    come down, down in the river to pray
    O sinners, let us drown,
    let us drown, come down,
    where in the river we'll stay.



    2. Star Pilot - Saint
    Fun, campy sci-fi + JESUS!
    ~
    Don't you stop fighting
    Armor up, star pilot


    3.
    Where Roses Grow - Rez Band
    Moves me to tears every time. Also, the bluesy solooo ...
    ~
    Stand with me at the mercy seat
    With mounds, mounds of ashes spread about my feet


    4. Nightcrawler - Judas Priest
    The quintessential monster song (gotta have at least one Priest song on here, right?).
    ~
    Fingernails start scratching

    On the outside wall
    Clawing at the window
    "Come to me," it calls ...


    5.
    Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silence - Tim Bushong
    Tim Bushong's beautiful adaption of this hymn is the only worship music I'll ever need tbh.
    ~
    At his feet the six-winged seraph
    Cherubim with sleepless eye
    Turn their faces to the Presence
    As with ceaseless voice they cry ...


    6. The Singing Ringing Tree/The Parable of the Singing Ringing Tree (either version) - The Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus
    This is another one that's tough to describe. You just kinda have to listen to it, and if you get it, you get it.~
    When thy burning heart they see
    Beneath the singing ringing tree.


    7. Divine Darkness - Crimson Moonlight
    Black metal spirituality/liturgy... the sublime, the unknowable, the terrible but beautiful, the intersection of horror and wonder.
    ~
    O, Transcendente! Surrounded by a haze of blackness,
    In the dark I found Thy dwelling,
    To perceive the Name brings delirium to the soul.



    8. Where Dead Angels Lie - Dissection
    Technically awe-inspiring, brutal, lovely.
    ~
    Frost is spreading across the plain
    To welcome the eternal night


    9. Shores in Flames - Bathory
    Close to my heart because it reminds me of Lake Superior, it's the North epitomized.
    ~
    When the wind cries out my name
    And time has come for me to die,
    Then wrap me in my cape
    And lay my sword down at my side.



    10. Time (unreleased version on the Time 1 compilation, NOT the album version. this is the closest in style I could find on YouTube, but it's not the same one) - Phil Keaggy
    The first song I ever fell in love with, and the moment I realized how much I love guitars. The improvised solo is a masterpiece in and of itself.
    ~
    But Old Man Time is running out
    And will cease eventually



    (I had to cut Larry Norman, Drottnar, and Mayhem, all of which feel like a crime...)

    "So long is the way to the unknown, long is the way we have come. . ." ~ Turisas, Five Hundred and One

    "[An artist is] an idiot babbling through town. . .crying, 'Dreams, dreams for sale! Two for a kopek, two for a song; if you won't buy them, just take them for free!'" ~ Michael O' Brien,
    Sophia House

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.

    "Cry not my love, I'll return
    Only death can keep us apart"

    Tears when you realize he's not talking about a girl, he's talking about Sweden.
