Music: The Top 12 Songs by The Smiths

By Bill You may remember reading my story regarding The Smiths on the blog before, but if you don’t, I’ll recap quickly now. For my entire life, I have hated The Smiths. This is partly down to the fact that my parents hated them and that whenever they were brought up in conversation on TV…

Music: The Top 12 Mumford & Sons Songs

By James So, writing this list was, for me, about as hard as the Muse one I did a little while back… Another band that I utterly adore is, Mumford & Sons. They’re superb, consistent and relatively unique - mixing up country, pop, rock, folk and probably genres I’ve not even thought of. There are…

Music: My Top 12 Song Picks For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.3

By James It’s no secret that I am genuinely in love with James Gunn and his incredible super sci-fi, superhero blockbusters - The Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel. Whilst I have spoken about these films in various other articles, this post has one specific topic in mind - the soundtrack. The original soundtrack…

Music: The Top 15 Led Zeppelin Songs of All Time

By Bill For me, Led Zeppelin are the greatest rock band that ever walked the Earth. By extension of that, they are also one of the greatest musical acts of all time. Because they were only around for a few years, it means that nearly the entirety of their output is solid gold and so…

Music: The Top 15 Aerosmith Songs of All Time

By Bill It’s a criminal shame that Aerosmith never enjoyed the same level of success over here as they have in their native America. A cross between The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, in the states they are rightfully heralded as rock gods and are one of the most commercially successful music acts of all…

Now, not all of these are better than the originals, however they come bloody close, with some even coming up trumps. The best…

Music: The Top 10 Solo Beatles Songs of All Time

By Bill The Beatles are rightly known as the greatest band of all time and the reason they became so famous and are still so highly regarded to this day is because each of the Fab Four were/are incredible musicians and songwriters … well maybe not Ringo, bless him. He had personality, though … and…

Music: Top 10 Double Albums of All Time

By Bill Double albums have nearly all but disappeared, after becoming popular in the mid-60s and carrying on with strength into the 70s, they are now rarer than a jiving goth. Having two albums worth of material without it sounding like a hell of a lot of filler, is an art form. With this in…

Music: The Top 15 David Bowie Songs of All Time

By Bill I originally set out to write a top 10, but when I got out my Bowie collection I realised that would be impossible and so had to bump it up to 15, which was still excruciatingly painful. I understand that this list is going to be extremely divisive, as Bowie was so prolific…

Music: Top 10 Muse Songs

By James Muse are my favourite band of all time. Originating from Devon, they have become one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. They consist of Matt Bellamy (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Chris Wolstenholme (bass guitar, backing vocals, keyboards) and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion). Their debut album dropped in 1999 and since then they have gone from strength…
