    I thought this would be an interesting idea to compare our listening tastes and also get other recommendations from forum members with similar tastes.

    1 - Choose your 13 favourite or most listened to albums.
    2 - Then choose your 1 favourite track off each of the 13 albums to make a personal 'best of' album.

    Mine are:-


    1) Kelly Clarkson - Walk Away (Breakaway)
    2) Alanis Morrisette - Forgiven (Jagged Little Pill)
    3) The Cardigans - My Favourite Game (Gran Turismo)
    4) Michelle Branch - Everywhere (The Spirit Room)
    5) Natalie Imbruglia - Torn (Left of The Middle)
    6) Oasis - Cigarettes and Alcohol (Definitely Maybe)
    7) Ready Steady Go - Oakenfold (Collateral Movie Soundtrack)
    8) Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot (Employment)
    9) Evanescense - Everybodys Fool (Fallen)
    10) Green Day - American Idiot (American Idiot)
    11) Joss Stone - Don't Know How (Mind Body and Soul)
    12) Keane - Somewhere Only We Know (Hopes and Fears)
    13) Kelly Rowland - Stole (Simply Deep)



    And no mocking my musical tastes please. ;)

    I prefer it it with tracks of silence rather than 30 minutes of silence added to the final track.

    It's funny how ready people are to class people into one sort of group on their taste of music. Yet this thread seems to contradict this, I.E Aphex Twin and Marilyn Manson, Arcade fire and Pearl Jam, Nelly Furtado and Red Hot Chillis, Bjork and The Stone Roses.
