    I've been revising my itunes lately and decided to create this topic and to slowly put my story here, told by my fav artists and music.

    60 artists initially will be presented, with Top 10/20/40/50/70/75/100. It will take me a LONG time but I will slowly do it, and will be editing this post so as to summarize information here.

    Also I will tell sometimes "How I met..." so as to put in a few lines on how I discovered the artist in question.

    Then I will share specific albums or songs by another artists. And of course will repost charts if an artist previously presented releases a new album.

    Finally, a TOP album chart will be editted everytime an artist is fully presented. I will add his/her/their catalogue to the chart.

    First of all, here are the artists:

    A Fine Frenzy's TOP 10


    10. Electric Twist (Bomb In A Birdcage)
    I like the simplicit and lightness of this song.

    9. Last Of Days (One Cell In The Sea)
    I love the sweet voice here.

    8. Come On, Come Out (One Cell In The Sea)
    Her music sounds like autum, if that makes any sense. And I love autum.
    "Watching the sky, you're watching a painting
    Coming to life shifting and shaping
    Staying inside, it all goes, all goes, all goes, all goes by"


    7. Lifesize (One Cell In The Sea)
    Simple, but effective.

    6. What I Wouldn't Do (Bomb In A Birdcage)
    LOVE it. The clapping. The guitar. The voice. The honest lyrics. Opening track of her second album.

    5. Think Of You (One Cell In The Sea)
    The second song I heard from her. She has a topic going through most of her songs, which would be unrealized love.

    4. Near To You (One Cell In The Sea)
    I love songs that are "visual". I can see this song as a soundtrack song, The sounds perfectly fit the feeling of the lyrics.

    3. Now Is the Start (Pines)
    This could have easily be my number 1. But I have 2 more songs that are closer to my heart. I LOVE this song. I love the video.

    2. Almost Lover (One Cell In The Sea)
    This is the song that started it all (see How I Met...). It is too sad, so it is not for anytime. But is is beautiful.

    1. Hope For The Hopeless (One Cell In The Sea)
    Great song. Again, a perfect "visual" song. My borther passed away the exact same day as my kid was having a very complicated medical intervention... I vividly remember being at home the following day listening to this song. It is silly, but it helped me a lot, and that's why I will always cherish this one as A Fine Frenzy's number one song




    A Fine Frenzy's discography:

    One Cell In The Sea (2007) - My rating: 82.3


    Bomb in a Birdcage (2009) - My rating: 72.3


    Pines (2012) - My rating: 66.7




    How I Met... A Fine Frenzy?

    I was going out with a girl back in 2007. I liked her a lot, but it was complicated. She was in a longtime relationship and I was just going out of another. But we were perfect together.

    One day, in my car, she gave me a cd and told me to listen to it togeher. It was A Fine Frenzy's "Almost Lover"... We realized we were just that, almost lovers, and it was becoming quite painful.

    So I made up my mind, and today that girl is my wife and we have a beautiful 2 year old son.

    So, A Fine Frenzy was her choice but slowly I became more and more enthrilled by her voice and her sounds.

    Love me some stories and the way you connect the songs and albums to your personal life makes it very entertaining!

    What I Wouldn't Do was my favorite from this batch, the singer's vocals remind me of KT Tunstall a bit, deep and versatile voice!

    Thanks Wardo! Nice to read this from you.

    I have a tendency to enjoy female singers, and pop-rock is one of my fav genres, so I understand the KT comparisson. In fact, KT will eventually be portrayed here.

    Off to work now, long day ahead.

    This is a cool thread, I love many of the singers you listed here!

    I've only heard Pines from A Fine Frenzy, and maybe 1, 2 songs from the other albums. Need to check her out some more, Pines is rather difficult but cool.

    By your votes in the different games I see that we have some points in common regarding music. I'm glad you can enjoy this!

    Pines is difficult for me too! It was a change from her previous albums. I think it was more experimental which is interesting but, all in all, the albums lacks intensity.
    Now Is The Time is the lighter song, and more similar to her previous albums.

    Aimee Mann's TOP 30: Part 1


    She doens't have the best voice, but she has a distinctive voice, and that's what I like about her. Another pop-rock artist. Here is the first part of this artist's top 30, with some good simple songs. Still to come, some true gems in my discography.

    30. Barfly (Charmer)
    I like the country sound in this song.

    29. It's Over (@#%&*! Smilers)
    I like the phrase "and you'll call it fate, when you show up too late and it's over"

    28. Dear John (The Forgotten Arm)

    27. She Really Wants You (The Forgotten Arm)

    26. Humpty Dumpty (Lost In Space)

    25. Deathly (Bachelor No. 2 or, the Last Remains of the Dodo)
    Also part of the Magnolia OST. I like the fact that Aimee pornounces so clearly.

    24. Video (The Forgotten Arm)

    23. Today's The Day (Lost In Space)

    22. I Can't Help You Anymore (The Forgotten Arm)
    I'll get a pen and make a list
    And give you my analysis
    But I can't write this story
    With a happy ending


    21. Freeway (@#%&*! Smilers)




    Aimee Mann's discography: Part 1

    9. I'm with Stupid (1995) - My rating: 66.9


    8. Whatever (1993) - My rating: 68.3


    7. Bachelor No. 2 or, the Last Remains of the Dodo (2000) - My rating: 70.8

    I've been seeing her name pop up on my last.fm suggestions but never got around to checking her out. Maybe a bit too pop-ish oriented for my taste, and reminds me of Sara Bareilles whose music I don't like at all (so much for common points ), so it's another no-no. But she's kinda interesting, maybe I'll delve into her eventually!

    Question: how do you decide if an artist will have a top 10, 30 or 50 or anything else? By the size of their discography or randomly?

    I'll miss a lot of these first ones bc I'll be gone from UKMix for about a month, but I do plan on catching up with all of it when I come back

    Have a nice time on your UKMIx-holidays! This topic will be waiting here lol I know we disagree on some artists, which is normal, but in general I see you as someone whose music taste I respect.

    Top10/20/30/50/etc will depend on the numebr of songs I want to share. In general I am sharing songs above 8 points in my scale. I am rating the whole discography but then just share the ones I want to share.

    I feel that with less songs here, some people may eventually listen to some of them, but if I present 250 songs of each artist then people won't bother. And I want some of these songs to be heard. Lately, I've been nominating this less famous artists in different games (i.e Brandi Carlile in The Album Cup or Aimee Mann in The Race)

    I think Aimee is less pop than Sara, with time and willingness give her a try and then tell me!

    It's in the directory thread, here's the link.

    viewtopic.php?f=15&t=82807

    I think it'd look a little different now if I done it over.

    Yes, it is very hard for me to rank songs, I feel that I am not being fair many times. But so far I have been enjoying this.

    Thanks for the link, now I rememeber it was in the directory where I saw the link. I was checking page by page in the Personal Charts Thread and just couldn't find it

    Aimee Mann's TOP 30: Part 2


    Here it is the second part of Aimee Mann's TOP 30. Hope you enjoy her as much as I do!

    20. Whatever Happened To Christmas (One More Drifter In The Snow)
    I was kind of confused when Aimee released a christmas album. But then I saw that MANY artists do it, so I gave it a try. This particular song is very nice, not festive christmas but more relaxed.

    19. I Can't Get My Head Around It (The Forgotten Arm)

    18. Calling On Mary (One More Drifter In The Snow)
    Another christmas song.

    17. Clean Up For Christmas (The Forgotten Arm)
    This is not from the christmas album.
    "And I know enough to know
    That, baby, when it's over, it's over
    And it's over
    'Cause, baby, I'm done
    "

    16. Borrowing Time (@#%&*! Smilers)
    I like the bass here, the rythmic part of this song.

    15. Driving Sideways (Bachelor No. 2 or, the Last Remains of the Dodo)

    14. 31 Today (@#%&*! Smilers)
    "I thought my life would be different somehow
    I thought my life would be better by now
    But it's not, and I don't know where to turn
    "

    13. This Is How It Goes (Lost In Space)

    12. Ballantines (feat. Sean Hayes) (@#%&*! Smilers)

    11. Pavlov's Bell (Lost In Space)
    History shows but rarely shows it well



    Aimee Mann's discography: Part 2

    6 One More Drifter In The Snow (2006) - My rating: 71.5


    5. Charmer (2012) - My rating: 72.0


    4. @#%&*! Smilers (2008) - My rating: 76.2

    How I Met... Aimee Mann?

    My brother was a big Magnolia fan, the Paul Thomas Anderson film from 1999.He watched it like 10000 times. But I hated it, mainly because he was a big fan. Typical brother love .

    He bought the soundtrack, which mainly consists of Aimee Mann's music, but never listened to it. When I moved out from my parents house to live with my now-wife, I found it and took it with me. She already knew Aimee's music, but it was a whole new world for me.

    I never saw the film anyway, but the soundtrack is great and I am very thankful to my brother for introducing me to this fab artist.

    Aimee's music in Magnolia is heartbreaking, it's very deep. Save Me is my favourite.

    This reminds me that Goldmoney suggested an Album Cup with soundtracks only, it would be a great chance to see Aimee shine, perhaps.

    I don't wanna spoil tomorrow's top 10, but Magnolia has some fantastic songs! It can be a good choice for the Album Cup. Save me is indeed a good track.

    Nice Crazy that you find the links useful
