In no particular order, and I had to do 21 22.  And weirdly, 4 of my  favourite bands - Queen, Rush, The Tragically Hip and AC/DC - don't even appear!  It's more the endless excellence with those guys than any one song. 

Bat Out of Hell, Meat Loaf
Night Moves, Bob Seger
Refugee, Tom Petty
Take it Easy, The Eagles
Blinded by the Light, Manfred Mann cover (Bruce Sprigsteen orig)
Angie, The Rolling Stones
Go Your Own Way, Fleetwood Mac
Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen
Runnin' on Empty, Jackson Browne
Sweet Home Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd
Tiny Dancer, Elton John
Levon, Elton John
Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting, Elton John
Feels Like Rain, John Hiatt
More Than a Feeling, Boston
Come Sail Away, Styx
All Right Now, Free
Don't Let  Me Down, The Beatles
Baba O'Reilly, The Who
Pinball Wizard, The Who
Gettin' in Tune, The Who
Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, Elton John

In some ways a pretty predicatable straight up classic rock mix I guess, but those are my essentials - the ones I can't imagine my personal music history without.   The Styx and the Boston in particular are a little worn out due to excessive radio play, but they remain great songs.

Extreme - more than words
Queen - Somebody to love
Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run
George Michael - Father Figure
Elton John - Sacrifice
Eagles - Hotel California
Pink Floyd - Another brick in the wall
Nirvana - Smells like teen spirit
Prince - Purple Rain

I could list all the songs on my music player but that would take a while

I'm bored. Have a list with explanations.

1. Stars - peformed by Philip Quast. Les Miserables. 
I for some reason made it my ambition in life to see Philip Quast sing this live. I knew it would probably never happen because he said he was not going to go back to Les Mis again, but rather unfortunately for me, he sang it at an event I was at at The Royal Albert Hall recently. Therefore, my only goal in life has been reached and now I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. Anyway, that one is here because the song never fails to move me and Quast's voice is the best ever.

2. Confrontation - performed by Antony Warlow. Jekyll and Hyde The Musical
This is here because I love it and it's all dramatic and if you try and sing it you sound like a maniac.

3. These Are The Days Of Our Lives - Queen
Yeah.. it's by this little band called Queen, you've probably not heard of them.

4. The Safety Dance - Men Without Hats
Well, why not?

5. Gethsemane - performed by Glenn Carter. Jesus Christ Superstar.
So so wrong, but I can't help it. Glenn Carter is quite obviously not the best Jesus' (Jesi?) of all time but I kind of love him and want his babies and he makes me go all weak at the knees and I have yet to work out why. I don't think he is a particularly handsome man and yet I LOVE HIM. Go figure.

6. Lily's Eyes - Antony Warlow and Philip Quast  from the musical version of The Secret Garden
I see a pattern forming here... Anyway, pretty song, great voices.

7. Good Morning Starshine - Hair
I like it.

8. Forsaken - Daggers
They are band that nobody has heard of and they disbanded a couple of years ago but me and a group of friends used to go to all their gigs and were their only fans there half the time. They were great. The lead singer and guitarest are now signed and are using some of the bands songs under the name HURTS I think. It's most odd. Apparently they're going to get "really big". Strange.

9. Look Down/The Robbery - Les Miserables
Possibly my favourite scene in the whole musical.

10. Absolute Beginners - David Bowie
I love Bowie, and this song I've always loved in particular. I can listen to it on repeat over and over.

- RUSH "Subdivisions"
- Elton John "Ticking"
- Styx "Suite Madam Blue"
- Journey "Mother Father"
- Black Sabbath "Die Young"
- Extreme "Interface"
- Judas Priest "Angel"


Brian May: "I like KISS a lot. I have a great regard for KISS 'cause it's all-out. They just had their vision, they had their dream, and they damn well went for it."

From "Les Miserables" I'd go with "Empty Chairs At Empty Tables".

From "Jesus Christ Superstar" I'd go with "John 19:41".

I don't think I could ever pick a concrete 'all-time' list, so these are the ones that are getting the most play from me at the moment:

"Back of My Mind" by Matthew Sweet
"Couldn't I Just Tell You" by Todd Rundgren
"Frank and Jesse James" by Warren Zevon
"Give My Another Chance" by Big Star
"I'm So Tired" by The Beatles
"All The Right Reasons" by The Jayhawks
"We Used To Be Friends" by The Dandy Warhols
"I Will Take Care of You" by The Bangles
"Someone To Pull the Trigger" by Matthew Sweet
"Room At the Top" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

I haven't listened to too much Queen lately... maybe I should dust them off!
