So nobody likes Burt Bacharach ? :(

Some of the greatest hits of all time alongside the Motown label. :D

Mick Jagger always looks like he could do with a good wash to me, that should give him some satisfaction. :P

David Holmes

Keane seem quite good

Franz Ferdinand

Michael Jackson - shamone!

A bit of Joy Division

Wagner (particularly Tannhauser at the moment)

Carmina Burana

Guns and Roses - why the hell not?!

Coldcut

New Order

Massive Attack

The Beach Boys

Madness

Chas and Dave - give me a London girl anytime ;)

Yes, you will. I really hope that was a joke

Ten years ago was "Soundcity" in Bristol. It was amazing. Britpop at its best.

I saw Orbital and Skunk Anansie. Looking back I wish had seen more acts, particularly Elastica and Blur.

I saw Radiohead that year too, they were miserable then and they're miserable now, get some CBT for heaven's sake!

I'm about to lose any credibility I ever had, but what the heck! Take into consideration that I'm in my 20's and have time to mature! LOL

Abba (amazing pop music)

Annie Lennox (great voice)

Bananarama (a non manufactured girl band)

Brand New Heavies ("Back to Love" was their finest hour)

The Carpenters (sweet voice and feel good tracks)

Dido (great lyrics)

The soundtrack to Evita (for "The money kept rolling in", the inspiration to my first HPC movie)

Freda Payne (for "Band of Gold", my mother used to play it all the time after the divorce)

Gay dance music (if you've ever been for a night out to a gay club you'll appreciate what I mean)

Human League ("Don't you want me baby?" is the best pop song I've ever heard)

Jamiroquai ("Cosmic girl" is a real triumph)

Kim Wilde (before she was a gardener)

Lightening Seeds ("You showed me what to do")

M People (Her voice is great)

Madonna (Always has her finger on the pulse, imagine if she had chosen politics as a career!)

Motown (Anything from the Motown collection)

Pet Shop Boys (Amazing production on their 80s/90s stuff)

Queen (amazing anthems)

Roxette (remember them?)

Rachel Stevens (don't own any albums or singles but have you seen her in her videos? HOT!!)

Simply Red (beautiful lyrics)

Tina Turner (her greatest hits can be played anywhere!)

Westlife (they might be pure cheddar, but have you actually listened to some of their lyrics? Try it!)

Classixuk now steps into his flame-proof suit, dons his firemans helmet and prepares for the worst while clutching his hose! :lol:

EDIT: Will you punish me for being truthful, or praise me for the honesty and chastise me for the behaviour? (People with experience of kids will know what I mean)
