Another list

Well, I am still at home having woken up this morning feeling manky. Right now I feel a bit of a fraud as apart from the occasional coughing fit I am OK, so I shall probably be back in work tomorrow. There's only so much daytime telly any sane person can take, and I don't want to screw over my recovery by venturing outside for anything more prolonged than dropping rubbish in the bin.

I had intended to make use of the time in starting a new NWO character, but the inspiration won't come right now, so I am leaving it a few hours in the hope that the creative juices will start flowing.

I thought instead, that I'd put together the vaguely promised list of my personal favourite 10 rock songs, which will of course be entirely subjective and be entirely changeable, especially the deeper down the ten you get. I like to think the range is quite wide, for rock is a broad church ranging from the heavy acid teeth grinding stuff at one end, to the melodic almost orchestral at the other, with some quite poppy stuff thrown in at the lighter end. If nothing else, compiling the list will keep [livejournal.com profile] telemeister quiet; he's been bugging me to make the list since I mentioned it in passing.

If you are interested (in fact, even if you aren't) it's all behind the cut... )

I have decided, apropos nothing, that Lynyrd Skynyrd's Freebird is one of the ten greatest rock songs of all time. Not as good as Starless by King Crimson, but pretty damned good.

I think that sometime over the next few weeks I shall give some deep thought to this, and create my top ten all-time rock list. Doubtless it will be immediately out of date, but hey, that's the nature of the beast. Trouble is, I'm already wondering in what order to place Tales of Great Ulysses, Strange Brew and Badge by Cream, and whether all or any deserve to be in the top ten.

I may have bitten off more than I can chew, here.
