    OK, so you're making a personal compilation CD of your most favourite songs in the world, with a limit of 20 tracks! These are THE songs in your life, the ones that give you chills up and down your body, make your hairs stand on end, give you goosebumps and make you beam or cry with pure emotion with their true brilliance and genius. Yep, that damn good!

    What's gonna go on yours?

    Mine - Pointon's Goosebump Compilation:

    1. Pearl Jam - Given To Fly
    2. Radiohead - Creep
    3. Blur - End Of A Century
    4. Longpigs - On and On
    5. Nirvana - Lounge Act
    6. Muse - Hyper Music
    7. Keith Caputo - Dew Drop Magic
    8. Simon and Garfunkel - Mrs. Robinson
    9. REM - Losing My Religion
    10. Queen & David Bowie - Under Pressure
    11. Led Zeppelin - Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You
    12. Rage Against The Machine - Know Your Enemy
    13. Rival Schools - So Down On
    14. At The Drive-in - Cosmonaut
    15. Sevendust - Born To Die
    16. Vision Of Disorder - By The River
    17. Life Of Agony - Lost At 22
    18. Pearl Jam - Alive

    All that brilliance sandwhiched by Pearl Jam. 'Alive' has to be my most favourite song ever! I burned this to disc and I'll be making copies to give to all my friends!

    OK, yes... this is kind of thinly disguised as your favourite ever songs... but have we actually done that?

    I've picked my favourite bands and then chosen one of my favourite songs of theirs, and perhaps the most obvious ones sprang to mind, so this list would obviously be subject to serious revision if I actually had my CD collection to hand at the moment.

    Throw in my 2 cents (I do believe however that "perfect" compilations are seperated by genre so this one is loosely themed)

    1) Chemical Brothers- Morning Lemon
    2) Cassius- The Sound of Violence
    3) Death In Vegas- 23 Lies
    4) Prodigy- Voodoo People
    5) Juno Reactor- Conga Fury
    6) Massive Attack with Mos Def- I against I
    7) Les Rhythmes Digitals- Soft Machine
    8) Fluke- Absurd
    9) Fliter- Take my Picture (Hybrid Remix)
    10) Goldfrapp- Scrict Machine
    11) Propellerheads- Spybreak
    12) Bomb The Bass- Megablast
    13) Overseer- Supermoves
    14) Lo Fi Allstars- Battleflag
    15) Dust Brothers- This is your Life

    Of course my "analogue" compilation would be totally different

    Just the whole of Meat Puppets II would suffice. Theres lots I would probably miss, but I wouldnt want to be without the entire pups album.

    You can't do this...it's impossible. I'm raising a white flag as I type.

    A friend asked me to burn my favourite tracks to a CD for him. I hit ~ 37 before I had to stop myself....

    ...but just for this thread :

    Echo & The Bunnymen -- Clay
    Joy Division -- Love Will Tear Us Apart
    New Order -- Thieves Like Us
    Ryan Adams -- Come Pick Me Up
    David Bowie -- "Heroes"
    Bruce Springsteen -- Jungleland
    Television -- Marquee Moon
    The Beach Boys -- God Only Knows
    The Clash -- Police On My Back
    Flaming Lips -- Waitin' For A Superman
    The House Of Love -- Destroy The Heart
    Bob Dylan -- Visions Of Johanna
    Massive Attack -- Unfinished Sympathy
    Pixies -- Debaser
    The Velvet Underground -- Pale Blue Eyes
    Ride -- Taste
    The Smiths -- This Charming Man
    The Stone Roses -- Made Of Stone
    Talking Heads -- Once In A Lifetime
    U2 -- One

    (It's predicatable and I'm a traitor to my record collection -- I'm missing :
    REM, Radiohead, Talk Talk, Nick Drake, Belle & Sebastian, Gram Parsons, Dexys Midnight Runners. Interpol, The Beatles, Scott Walker, Husker Du, The Fatima Mansions, Tom Waits, Rolling Stones, Spiritualised, Public Enemy, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Walker Brothers....)
