Ah damnit! I don't know if I can do it for Floyd. Major thought required

Nice! Childhood's End is a classic. Another song from the earlier albums I love is "Fat Old Sun" from Atom Heart Mother, one of the first classic Gilmour guitar solos on that one.

Thx! Fat Old Sun is a good tune and the solo is definitely classic Gilmour. I had a hard time leaving 'Up The Khyber', 'Cymbaline' and 'Marooned' off.

'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun' was one I wanted so badly to make the list...

2 Shot Down In Flames
3 Ride On
4 Riff Raff
5 The Jack (If You Want Blood You've Got It version. I actually could have put that whole album on here... Theose live versions ROCK!!!!!)


Gotta think about the Floyd!

Agreed. I would say "Riff Raff" is another song where the live version obliterates the studio version from memory. AC/DC is really a live band, that's where the magic truly happens.

Thin Lizzy:

1. Sweet Marie
2. Fight Or Fall
3. Borderline
4. Spirit Slips Away (Extended Version)
5. Roisin Dubh (Black Rose) A Rock Legend

Narrowing it down to 5 is tough, the first 4 are set in stone but 5 could be quiyte a few with all of them being ballads extending even to some of the new ones on the deluxe editions.

That's impossible, really. I could pick 20 and still have no idea what order to put them in.

I can understand that, I said the first four were set in stone but in reality only Sweet Marie is now that I think about it.

I only have a few Thin Lizzy albums, so I probably won't have too much trouble with this one;

1. Cowboy Song
2. Opium Trail
3. Running Back
4. The Boys Are Back In Town
5. Roisin Dublin

Okay, I'll pick a few Thin Lizzy tracks but there are dozens of others that could make the list as well.

1. Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed (my Dad's favorite Lizzy song, sentimental fave)

2. Spirit Slips Away

3. Angel From The Coast

4. Emerald

5. Showdown

For some reason I thought you'd have more mellow tunes, SD. Good list but "Angel From The Coast" always surprises me that it makes your lists of Lizzy faves. Not that it's a bad song b/c it's rather great but still surprises me.

Well, Emerald is really the only "heavy" tune on that list. Johnny The Fox, Showdown and Angel all lean toward the funky (at least in my opinion).

Hence using the word "mellow" instead of "heavy".
