Stephan, how are the final album and song lists progressing? Just curious.
We've lost Stephan since the day he discovered the joys of student life.
Hey Stephan where are you ? We miss you !
What's her name ?
I haven't left you, I still try to read most of the forum.. just haven't had much time to post. I have however drastically improved my collating skills and am now done with the songs list. Albums will be done tomorrow and then I'll post both. Once again, sorry for the extremely long delay.
Half a month late, but as some people like to put it: better late than never. I haven't had time to check for exact titles of the albums and whether or not all were made in 1987.. but so be it. Anyway, here we go:
1) Prince - Sign 'O' The Times
2) U2 - The Joshua Tree
3) R.E.M. - Document
4) Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
5) The Smiths - Strangeways, Here We Come
6) Sonic Youth - Sister
7) Hüsker Dü - Warehouse: Songs and Stories
Bruce Springsteen - Tunnel Of Love
9) The Replacements - Pleased To Meet Me
10) Eric B. & Rakim - Paid In Full
1) Prince - Sign 'O' The Times
2) Guns 'N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine
3) The Cure - Just Like Heaven
4) U2 - With Or Without You
5) R.E.M. - It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
6) Public Enemy - Bring The Noise
7) Sugarcubes - Birthday
R.E.M. - The One I Love
9) XTC - Dear God
10) New Order - True Faith
Complete list can be found here: . Please report any mistakes I might have made.
Thanks Stephan. Great work (like always but this time in an adverse situation). But I’ve found two mistakes:
- The Joshua Tree listed twice, but since you duplicated the points it doesn’t affect to the final position.
- The points that Greg gave to “Alex Chilton” by The Replacements are counted in a separate entry, and if you sum them in the correct entry “Alex Chilton” displaces “True Faith” and enters into the Top 10 (shit, I shouldn’t have said that, I like both songs but I prefer the New Order one).
I knew that Greg thing would come back to bite me in the ass. He's got his albums in a different format than his songs and I didn't notice that in time.
Thanks, Stephan - great lists, as always.
Hate to even bother mentioning this, since it has no impact on anything, but the Pixies' "Holiday Song" is listed twice, once as "The Holiday Song".
Thanks, Stephan, and welcome back from not being away
Prince wins, no real surprises in the top 10's.
Then 2 further corrections for the albums, that don't really make a difference to the end result, but anyway:
- The Lonesome Jubilee from John (Cougar) Mellencamp has 3entries in the list, all together good for 37+7+1=45 points.
- Sting has two entries, good for 10+18=28 points
No big surprises, a lot of 'last good album from big 80's bands that is not as critically acclaimed as their earlier stuff' for me to consider whether or not to get.
I already have Warehouse, based on Tim I probably wouldn't like Pleased To Meet Me, so that only leaves Strangeways.
Also Tunnel of Love, which I am ambivalent about because I love Nebraska but am not as big on his arena sounding stuff.
Great work, Stephan!
So, Alex Chilton made the top 10?
instead of a lame "No, but Paul Westerberg did" joke:
yeah, John, in case you haven't noticed yourself by now, according to Stephan's updated spreadsheet "he" is. hoo. ray.
I'm in love with that song!
