<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> Safesurfer's 20 Favorite Songs Of All Time <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

Awe and Behold!

This is a very hard choice to make, but these are some of the songs i never grow tired of. ( And I often get tired of songs very fast...)

01. A Strange Day - The Cure
02. Time Machine - Ride
03. He Thought of Cars - Blur
04. Midnight Summer Dream - The Stranglers
05. Cherry Coloured Funk - Cocteau Twins
06. Shake The Disease - Depeche Mode
07. Crosseyed & Painless - Talking Heads
08. Burning Airlines Give You So Much More - Brian Eno
09. 1969 - Boards Of Canada
10. Nimrodel\The Procession\The White Rider - Camel
11. The Ghost In You - The Psychedelic Furs
12. Love Like Blood - Killing Joke
13. Screamadelica( the song)- Primal Scream
14. Serenade - Steve Miller Band
15. Life's What You Make It- Talk Talk
16. Godless- Dandy Warhols
17. An American Dream - Love & Rockets
18. Hope In The Mirror - Zoot Woman
19. Caroline No - The Beach Boys
20. Fantasy - Lush

Oopsie Daisy! Guess I made it 20 and ruined your whole concept... I'm sorry! But it was really hard emotionally to pick just 20 anyway. And by the way, I kept to one song per band, so I've been good, haven't I? <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I am completely incapable of choosing my favorite top ten, it changes so frequently. But my top ten faves today are probably:

1. Eurythmics - Love is a Stranger
2. Kirsty McColl - A New England
3. Bananarama - Really Sying Something
4. House of Love - Christine
5. Joy Division - Isolation
6. XTC - Wonderland
7. Devo - Mongoloid
8. Wire - Dot Dash
9. Throbbing Gristle - United
10. Mo-Dettes - White Mice

But, tomorrow I'm sure my choices would be a completely different list.

Hard to pick just 10 from that time but here's mine:

LOVE WILL TEAR US APART-JOY DIVISION;
TEMPTATION-NEW ORDER;
THE SWEETEST GIRL-SCRITTI POLITTI;
DONT YOU WANT ME-HUMAN LEAGUE;
COMPUTER LOVE -KRAFTWERK;
HOMOSAPIEN-PETE SHELLEY;
PLAY TO WIN- HEAVEN 17;
XOYO-THE PASSAGE;
GHOSTS-JAPAN;
ECHO BEACH-MARTHA AND THE MUFFINS;


I COULD PICK 50 SMITHS SONGS, BUT I DONT REGARD THEM AS AS NEW WAVE/POST PUNK.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DISCOVERING SOME NEW MUSIC, YOU COULD TRY THE PASSAGE: A SYNTH BAND FROM MANCHESTER ENGLAND, A BIT LIKE A DARKER SOFT CELL.
