The BBC has compiled a list of the top ten most played tunes. Can you guess the number one?

Well, I was wrong - right era, but completely the wrong song. They didn't even have one in the top ten, to my surprise. :oops:

Good song, though.

Definitely a great favourite. It coincided with a time in my life when I was dancing to pop muisc every weekend (at Hayling Island Sailing club). One of those 'earworms'.

Well, I'm clearly totally out of synch with what the lords or radio would have me listen to... Not a single song in that top ten would be on any playlist of mine...

Strat, they're not asking you to follow fashion - just describing it.

I'm very surprised at which songs from many other artists topped their respective lists.

Hello Goodbye? At least it wasn't She Loves You, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah....

Just for the record, what would your [typo fixed] top 10 be?

Personal top ten now, or personal top ten of music ever personally played ? The problem with the BBC list is that it obviously favours old over new.

Do you want songs or albums ?

:D

I'll go for albums, and top 10 right now

Pink Floyd - The Wall
Radiohead - OK Computer
Guns'n'Roses - Appetite for Destruction
David Bowie - not sure which one - Ziggy maybe
Coldplay - X&Y
AC/DC - probably Back in Black, or a live album
Manic Street Preachers - no sure which one
The La's
Julian Cope - Peggy Suicide
Oasis - not sure which one

"Right now" is spot on in my book, Mark. The problem with any personal Top 10 is that it's almost always a matter of how you feel at the time - so something that you really love right now may be a bit run-of-the-mill a couple of months later, and then back up on top a bit later after that.

On your Top 10, Mark, I have to confess to not having heard that many of them - I sort of stopped listening to new music round about the time I left the UK in 1993 to go to Bangladesh, and even a couple of briefish stints in London didn't really get me kick-started again.

All the same, as far as Bowie is concerned I like Ziggy, but I think I prefer Hunky Dory or Space Oddity personally. As for Floyd, I've never got into The Wall particularly - Animals is probably my favourite, although I like Wish You Were Here a lot too.

Makes a change. I remember Radio 1 doing an all-time Top 100 albums in about 1993, and Stars by Simply Red came out on top. It's not a bad album, but I wonder whether it would even make the top 100 if they did the same thing today?
