As my name might suggest, I am of the opinion that Super Furry Animals are the best musical thing ever - certainly the best, most innovative and creative band to have emerged from the morass of 'Britpop'.

Apart from SFA, New Order, Orbital, Public Enemy, Elbow, Doves, Lalo Schafrin, Gil Scott Heron, The Specials, Billy Bragg, Busdriver, and the James Taylor Quartet are among those in my Hall of Fame, and I like lots of other stuff as well.

Let's face it, music is the best.

Hey! I used to really love Billy Bragg. Then I went to see him about two years ago, & instead of loads of music I got a bit of music & a lecture on social responsibility & the general crapness of the government. I was not happy. :evil:

He's always done that, though - just a shame he's having to slag a 'Labour' government.

Plus ca change...

Give a listen to Meatloaf. He recorded a duet w/ Pavarotti that's fantastic and if that doesn't sell you, try the songs "Original Sin" and "For Crying Out Loud."


Meatloaf? I loved the Bat out of Hell album when I was 17!
Why didn't you include Total Eclipse of the Heart?
It was written by the same guy that wrote Bat out of Hell. Very encompassing!


"Total Eclipse of the Heart" is a great song, just not my favorite.
Bonnie Tyler is a great artist (if find her stuff, it's worth it), just not in the same league as Bonnie Raitt.

Jim Steinman is (again) Meatloaf's lyricist. Thank the gods...

You know that if you loved the album at 17, as did I, then you'll appreciate it even more with a little extra life-experience.
I think that's what they call it now... ;0)

I have the record "Rotatey Diskers With Unwin" which is on the Marble Arch label, dated 1961.
His stories include the delights of:
The Pidey Pipeload of Hamling,
Goldyloppers And The Three Bearloaders,
Hi-de-Fido, and,
Professor Unwin Meetis The Press And Chattery On.

The man was a genius. He must be, based on the fact that most genius's aren't understood!

I have to agree, music is the best. As for Super Furry Animals, I discovered I have something in my posession that has a connection with them. You will find it in this quiz:

Can you see who it is yet?

When I saw this, I looked up from my computer at the original by Pete Fowler sitting on the mantlepiece. :D
I then promptly scored 9/10 in the quiz (he states big headedly). I didn't get the last one right.


My hall of fame would feature (in no particular order):

The Police, Pink Floyd, REM, Talking Heads, David Bowie, Crowded House (and anything Finn related), Clapton, Counting Crows, Spin Doctors and (if restricted to ten) pretty much anyone who has collaborated with Jools Holland and his band (that should cover a few).


My hall of shame features two types of music:

Country and Western
