Great start, my favourite songs from the first bunch are "Go Your Own Way" and "To The Moon And Back". I also like "Hurricane", "Believe" and "Who Wants To Live Forever". "Hotel California" and "Torn" are both great as well but overplayed.

That's a very good reason to follow this, then.
I like everything so far except for Whitney, Elton John and Marc Anthony. NH the Clapton song, i'll do my homework.
Best in the bunch are Hey You, Hotel California, Careless Whisper and November Rain, i think all were top 100 for me when i did an all time chart
Let's have a second referendum

Great start!

"Go Your Own Way" is easily Fleetwood Mac's greatest tune. "Hurricane" is decent and I do enjoy "Paradise". "Who Wants To Live Forever" is brilliant though - easily one of Queen's greatest contributions to music! "Torn" is overrated but good still. "All The Man That I Need" is one of Whitney's finest ballads.

Yes, I know, Mark - a type of artists I usually do not like, and this song is an example of songs that I usually do not listen to, but for some inexplicable reason, I love this song. :lol:

84. Whitney Houston - All The Man That I Need
One of my favourite Whitney songs, quite underrated!
One of the few songs of Whitney, I like. This one is by far my favorite.

Wayne wrote:Welcome Dragon, I've enjoyed your presence here already! Your music taste looks quite diverse
Thanks for the welcome and compliment :D , but I do not know almost anything about country music, hip-hop, barely listening jazz, r 'n' b (especially the 60's and 70's, even though it is a classic period), funk, soul (although now I try to discover the Motown, Stax, etc.).
I try to listen to a lot of different music, but sometimes I feel like I'm missing something important, and I need more music education (outside of rock music in the first place).

:cry:
Dont be upset! In this forum, almost everyone loves divas, my list does not disturb their dominance in this place. They are present in my list too, just in a limited amount. :wink:

Thank you all for your comments. :D

80-71 songs will be very soon.

I think you're just very young.
5 years ago when I was in my teenage years, I also prefer to listen to current music.
Now I'm in my early 20's and my taste has changed, not once, it happened gradually.

For everything has its appropriate time, I think. .

Now I also enjoy some modern songs and artists, but I prefer the "old" music in general.

ATB - Ecstasy
David Bowie - Life on Mars
Eminem - Lose Yourself
Eric Carmen - All By Myself
Evanescence - Bring Me To Life
Fleetwood Mac - Dreams
Garry Moore - Still Got The Blues
Guns'n Roses - Knocking On Heavens Door
Justin Timberlake - What Goes Around... Comes Around
