UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

the new Uncut edition published the 100 rock and movie icons of all time . The Number one on the list is LikeA Rolling Stone , by Bob Dylan . Anyone know the full list ?

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

I've seen some the top 10 somewhere. There was "Heartbreak Hotel" by Elvis Presley, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust" by David Bowie and the first two Godfather movies. I don't remember the rest.

Extremely little in the way of anything new in there, but some good choices nonetheless, I suppose.

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

To me the list seems very chaotic, but I suppose it is inevitable. Still many of my favourite albums are here, so I hope it can be included, despite its mixed character.

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

Yeah, the list is all over the place. However, it probably reads better in a magazine format rather than listed like that.

Regardless, I thought it stuck a little TOO close to the canon. The only things one could consider even slightly obscure are the Associates album and the Orange Juice single, and those are both safely buried near the bottom of the list.

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

I think that's because it was supposed to be a list of music and films that change the world. Obscure things don't change the world, however good they are.

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

Looks good to me!

Is the FGTH single Relax?

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

Like A Rolling Stone is actually #1

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

Guys, could you please clarify this. Is H61R mentioned without being the actual list item?

I guess "Like a Rolling Stone" is safe as the AM all time no. 1 then...

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

I think that's because it was supposed to be a list of music and films that change the world. Obscure things don't change the world, however good they are.

Well, that may be true. In which case, the Associates and Orange Juice shouldn't be in there! (Of course they are because they're recent "pet" Uncut bands.)

Oh well, it's a fine list.

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

Who cares! The Stone Roses, Surfer Rosa, Daydream Nation and The Soft Bulletin are on it, so it gets thumbs up from me. Now if the only got rid of that pesky Van Morrison album...

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

I have the edition and it is simply an essay by Patti Smith on Like A Rolling Stone at number one.

Re: UNCUT - 100 rock and movie icons

This list is good but I dont see The Beach Boys in the top ten...what about their ICONIC- Pet Sounds and Good Vibrations. After all the Beatles did draw their inspiration for Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Band from the Pet Sounds Album. By the way give Queen some respect I mean Bohemian Rhapsody may be the most popular pop song in a while and they created the two most memorable sports anthems in We are the Champions and We Will Rock You, they also performed the greatest performance for a Rock Act at their Live Aid gig back in 1985. 98 million of the 137 million people questioned said that. To me the Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 is the greatest but hey 98 million people beat out 1 person right.
