10 Favorite Bands of All Time


Interesting 10 on Tuesday topic this time. Interesting because I think people may judge me. Wait, maybe it's just me who judges people based on musical preference. It's all a matter of opinion, obviously, but I think some of the best musicians are so because they're fun. They don't necessarily have to be the best actual musicians. Here they are, in no particular order:
  1. The Beatles

  2. r.e.m.

  3. Dixie Chicks

  4. U2

  5. inxs

  6. Counting Crows

  7. depeche mode

  8. Guns 'N' Roses

  9. Steve Miller Band

  10. Journey

Honorable mentions include but are not limited to: ABBA, Bon Jovi, Blue October, Coldplay, Poison, Queen, and the beloved Village People. Any others?

As an aside, if you place a to-go order with a waiter and he asks you if you're going to wait around or just disappear and you say "please, God, let me disappear," there's an outside chance that he may possibly send you directly to the bar to have a drink while you wait on your food. Maybe.

Oh, yeah, it's judgement time. We overlap with The Beatles and U2. But, then, I'm way old, so I can see how I could have missed some of yours. I do love many -- most? -- of the ones you cite. But, um, not the Village People.

Counting Crows! Me too! I also love The Beatles, but left them off the list...Go figure!

Liked your list!

Happy Tuesday!

Hi, I like your list! I overlap with several on your list and wish I had remembered Queen!

Oh my god I can't believe I left out Queen. You've got some good ones (REM, U2, Counting Crows, The Beatles), but we have no overlap in our top 10. But Queen... how could I forget them?
Bubba's Sis said…
Yes, I considered Queen, too. Seriously, mine could have been a Twenty on Tuesday list by now! We have good overlap, tho - love me some Guns N' Roses (Sweet Child of Mine is the BEST!) and Journey! I personally think you should have bumped Bon Jovi (swoon) up to your Top Ten, but that's just me. :-)

Great list! Love Depeche Mode, INXS, REM, and the Dixie Chicks before they decided to go bashing country music.
