Ok, this is a sample of my “Best of” list. This was really, really hard to put together, hard to choose. These are SOME of my favorites - ones that just stand above the rest, IMO. I hope I’m not showing my age.
My interests are varied so bear with me and, sorry you won’t find Elvis in here (never liked him). Share yours too, there’s many of mine I’ve not put in this thread – especially the later ones – they just don’t seem as “unique/together” as the rest when put side to side. I’ve not put any of my classical ones here either. Just not enough room.

Unclassifiable
Jimi Hendrix – Voodoo Child
Of course… What can I say? This man plays for God every day now.



Most Sexy – of all time:
Aerosmith – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
Sends shivers up my spine every single time I listen to it. Feels primal to me. Aerosmith was my very first concert in the 70s… They haven’t lost their touch yet.



Best Female Voice – of all time:
Natalie Cole – Unforgettable
Sorry, the video just does not do this song justice… you must have the CD on a good home system to fully experience her beautiful voice... but you'll get the idea.



Best Soul/R&B:
Earth, Wind, & Fire - That's The Way Of The World
Can’t find anything like this today, for sure! Prove me wrong!



Damn Good Bluesy Rock n Roll:
Lenny Kravitz - Can't Get You Out Of My Mind
Love, love, love this song…

Southern Rock:
ZZ Top - Tush and Beer Drinkers and Hellraisers
Two for one on this video. ZZ Top just has a wonderfully smoooooth sound. Don’t see that much anymore. Lol, I have very umm... vivid? memories with these songs.
perhaps ‘vivid’ isn’t the word…



Symphonics:
Apocalyptica-Fade To Black
Beautiful, beautiful instrumentals. And, yes, I like the Metallica version too.



Mellowwwww:
Enignma - Age Of Loneliness



Sound Track:
Ilan Eshkeri – Stardust
The whole soundtrack but this is a good sample.



Best Psychedelic:
Beatles – Within you and without you
Trippy man…
… I just like it. My older brother has all of their albums so I kind of grew up listening to them.. a lot.



Most attempted by Garage Bands
Iron Butterfly – In A Gadda Da Vida
Heh.. This was my first album… I was 8 and remember playing it over and over and over. Interestingly (at least to me
) my second album was the Partridge Family. What’s up with THAT?

Best umm.. Instructional?
Baz Luhrmann – Wear Sunscreen
This should be mandatory at all high school graduations…



Rap:
Eminem – Beautiful
I think he’s real. I don’t like rap, in general, much because most of them only talk about sex, drugs, money and not much musical value, but there are a very few good ones:



Brother Ali - Forest Whitiker



Other:
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit

Ok... now my feelings are hurt! Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, think I'll eat some worms.

I must be deluded... singing that song to myself. Hmmm...
