Traffic -- Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys

Bob Marley -- Legend - Best of Bob Marley

Sade -- Best of Sade

Piper -- Piper (Feat. Billy Squier) <----very rare and out of print

Oliver Dragojevic -- anything by him, if you like old-style Croatian music!

I recently listened to and really enjoyed that collection CD compiled by that British DJ who went to Brazil, and the first disc is all Bossa Nova classics and the second disc is all modern stuff. Anyone know what I am talking about?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Go Paul!!

I was already planning my list before I even started reading you guys'!

Suicidal Tendencies - First album, Join The Army & How Will I Laugh Tomorrow

Metallica - Master of Puppets, Justice for All & Ride the Lightning

Excel - Split Image & The Joke's on you.

Adam And The Ants - Dirk Wearz White Socks, Kings of the Wild Frontier, Prince Charming, Strip (Ok I'm a sad fan!)

Voi Vod - Dimension Hatross & Nothingface

I would say Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory but that "Mr Hahn" track sucks major weenie! The rest of it rules!

"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked him to forgive me."

Nice to see some Bowie in there -- he is one of my all-time favorites; just didn't make my list because each album has one or two songs I don't care for. Although Changesbowie comes close (big surprise).

Nice to see some Steely Dan, too! I used to have some kind of greatest hits by them, and could listen to it all the way through. B)

Oh, and am I the only one not surprised in the least that Wayne's response was all images? :huh:
