I want to change on thing in Bon Jovi's list:

1. Livin' On A Prayer
2. You Give Love A Bad Name
3. Wanted Dead Or Alive
4. Lay Your Hands On Me
5. Bad Medicine
6. Keep The Faith
7. Bed Of Roses
8. Dry County (This needs to be added)
9. Runaway
10. I'll Be There For You

"In & Out of Love" is in no way top 10 Bon Jovi-material. It never became huge hit and didn't get any critical praise either.

"Dry County" is much better choice for top 10: like Brett Alan said, it hit top 10 in UK and became maybe their artistically most praised song. The song has been huge fan favourite and fans of the band still show signs where they ask the band to play "Dry County". Richie Sambora's guitar solos in that song have got much respect from music community and the song is usually seen as their biggest accomplisment. Bon Jovi's list won't be complete without this amazing 10-minute epic somewhere in it.

I agree that "In & Out of Love" should come off, but the first song I would add would be "Always", a huge song in the US, UK, and Europe. I think it should be either #3 or #4.

Good call on "Always", that one has always been pretty huge. I'd see it on the list behind "Wanted Dead or Alive".

I think that "Dry County" should still be in the list too, around 8-10, just before "Runaway". "Runaway" was first hit by Bon Jovi, and has proven to be pretty big fan favourite, but the song (or the album) were never critically acclaimed.

"Dry County" reached #9 in the UK Charts and #1 in Latin America. It has been the lengthiest hit by Bon Jovi to get high in the charts. Although Dry County is considered a fan favorite, it was played regularly only on the Keep the Faith and These Days tours. In fact, on May 13, 2006, when Bon Jovi played Dry County live on the first concert of the summer leg of their Have A Nice Day Tour in Düsseldorf, it was the first time it had been played live in 10 years, and went on to be performed on further occasions on that tour and on the band's more recent Lost Highway Tour. The band's followers often display signs requesting the song.

The song seems to have pretty good lasting impact because they had long break of performing it at all but the song was still widely requested everywhere. Also, they never included the song in their compilations (which is sad, really.) but the song still seems to have lots of fans and praise.

The song is often praised as one of Bon Jovi's best songs artistically, and Sambora's soloing in that track is really respected. Also, Jon's vocals and lyrics and instruments played by rest of the band have been praised. The song is often called Bon Jovi's best lyrical performance because of its clever story about the decline of the US domestic oil industry and its effect on those whose income relied on it. The band have also played it really much live (especially during 90's) and Jon Bon Jovi often added his own speeches about struggles of life into the song.

http://www.amazon.com/Keep-Faith-Bon-Jo ... ddFiveStar Most of these reviewers praise something about "Dry County" and often pick it as the highlight of Keep the Faith-album and sometimes even their whole career.

"Into My Arms" and "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" ahead of "The Mercy Seat"? Disagree, think TMS should be #2, if not #1, it's by far and away his most acclaimed song.

"The Ship Song" should also definitely be in there too, probably top 5.


I'm giving the #1 spot to WTWRG at this moment yet, because of it's higher chart rankings:

1. Where The Wild Roses Grow
2. The Mercy Seat
3. Into My Arms
4. Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
5. Nature Boy
6. Henry Lee
7. Red Right Hand

Yeah WTWRG probably should be #1. I definitely think "Ship Song" should be in there though. Probably at #4 ahead of DLD!!! It's always been one of his most acclaimed songs, or over int he UK at least (I think it was ranked the #2 single of the year by the NME in 1990).

Was also named in the Australasian Performing Right Association's top 20 Australian songs of all-time (the only Cave song in there): http://www.debbiekruger.com/pdfs/aprathirty.pdf

Anyone else think WDOA should be #2 at least?

1. Sweet Child O' Mine
2. November Rain
3. Paradise City
4. Estranged
5. Civil War
6. Welcome to the Jungle
7. Coma
8. Mr. Brownstone
9. You Could Be Mine
10. My Michelle

This list is a little off imo. It should be something more like:

1. Sweet Child O' Mine
2. November Rain
3. Welcome to the Jungle
4. Estranged
5. Paradise City
6. Rocket Queen
7. Civil War
8. Patience
9. Don't Cry
10. You Could Be Mine

I would put Paradise City at #4, but generally speaking your list looks better than the actual.

I actually do. Also, "Dry County" deserves its placement there.

I agree that the Guns N' Roses list needs to be redone. The suggested one is pretty good, but I'd make a few small changes.

Guns N' Roses
1. Sweet Child O' Mine
2. November Rain
3. Paradise City
4. Estranged
5. Welcome to the Jungle
6. Civil War
7. Don't Cry
8. Patience
9. Knockin' on Heaven's Door
10. You Could Be Mine

Other songs to consider: Sympathy for the Devil, Rocket Queen, Mr. Brownstone, Live and Let Die.

Also the list for Yes desperately needs a fix-up. Here's the current list:

Yes
1. Close to the Edge
2. Roundabout
3. Owner Of A Lonely Heart
4. Yours Is No Disgrace
5. I've Seen All Good People
6. Long Distance Runaround
7. Revealing Science of God/Dance of the Dawn
8. Heart of the Sunrise
9. Siberian Khatru
10. And You And I

This is missing some of the best songs by Yes (particularly Starship Trooper) and ranks some less credible songs too high. I think this would be a better list:

1. Close to the Edge
2. Roundabout
3. Yours Is No Disgrace
4. Starship Trooper
5. And You and I
6. Owner of a Lonely Heart
7. I've Seen All Good People
8. Long Distance Runaround
9. South Side of the Sky
10. Heart of the Sunrise

Other songs to consider: Siberian Khatru, The Gates of Delirium, Wonderous Stories, Mood for a Day, Survival, and Love Will Find a Way.

Brian Eno could also use some polishing up. His current list:


Also, as almost everybody has noticed, the current Genesis list is a *little* biased towards the 1980's Collins-era of the band. I won't make an list but I think that Firth of Fifth, Supper's Ready, The Musical Box, and The Cinema Show MUST be on the list.

Brian Eno
1. America is Waiting with David Byrne
2. Discreet Music
3. Baby's On Fire
4. Music for Airports 1/1
5. St. Elmo's Fire
6. Deep Blue Day
7. Here He Comes
8. Third Uncle
9. Cindy Tells Me
10. Sky Saw

This list is really difficult to decide on since Eno has two distinct genres: art rock/pop and ambient. Picking out the top five of each, I'd suggest:

Rock/pop:
1. Here Come the Warm Jets
2. Baby's on Fire
3. St. Elmo's Fire
4. America Is Waiting
5. On Some Faraway Beach

Ambient:
1. 1/1 [Music for Airports]
2. An Ending (Ascent)
3. Discreet Music
4. Deep Blue Day
5. Fullness of Wind

And lastly, I think the band Air has deserved a list for a while. Here is my suggestion:

1. Sexy Boy
2. All I Need
3. Playground Love
4. La femme d'argent
5. Kelly Watch the Stars!
6. Alpha Beta Gaga
7. Talisman
8. Alone in Kyoto
9. You Make It Easy
10. Ce matin-là
