Impossible to choose one or even 10 favorites. Quite a few of my favs have been posted already


Start with these two. Although Time Bandits had two top 10 hits, this was the only one that was huge in South Africa.



Love this one so much.

I gotta go with this one just because of the back-story. No multiple mics or multi-track back in those days. Everything else went without a hitch so, rather than risk another take that wasn't perfect, they left in a glaring mistake. Listen at the end of the lead guitar break. The singer comes in too early and has to wait 'til next trip around...

Are you sure?


achieve global success with their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), released in 1983. The title track was a worldwide hit, topping the chart in various countries including the US. The duo went on to release a string of hit singles and albums before they split in 1990.

Wow, I had no idea. I thought they just disappeared. I'm going to have to call a "time slip" on this one.

Fine then, Tracy Chapman
