    When I suggested this artist for the top ten I didn't realize that she had done 200 albums and 800 singleso_O, but without all the French and German songs it was doable.
    Not that she doesn't sound nice on her French records, it's just that I like my French songs a little "dirtier".

    The first problem, where to list the Downtown signature song? I felt it could only be #1, and I didn't want to do that because there are so many other songs that I enjoy more at the moment - but not necessarily because they're better. So I decided to compromise and vote for some Downtown-esque songs (or is it Down Town?).

    1. Colour My World

    Because the chorus is so ecstatic.

    2. Heart

    Not a very interesting title, but I love the crescendo of this song (a train gaining speed, or a heart that beats faster and faster) and I would never have guessed this was a Petula Clark song.

    3. Melody Man

    So, the seventies really started exactly in 1970. A great pop song in the style of Middle Of The Road and The New Seekers.

    4. Whistlin' For The Moon
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaulCKVbZ1U
    A playful, romantic Doris Day-ish song, and I could have this played in the background for hours and totally not be annoyed by it.

    5. Dance With Me
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiEkvr7O6tk
    Downtown, the ballad version. Oh it's so gorgeous!

    6. Song Without End
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OC5jojaSr5Q
    I'm getting movie vibes from this. Maybe it should have been played over the end credits of Another Bouquet.

    7. My Love
    One of her US #1 hits, and yet it couldn't be more Eurovision.

    8. I Know A Place
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGXRqzQJFzQ
    Could have been called Downtown Reprise, or maybe it should have been part of a Downtown Suite Medley.

    9. Who Am I?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tvs-x6HKU6g
    Indeed, who is you? For such a famous and successful singer I find her sort of a non-celebrity, and I don't mean that as criticism.
    Who Am I has shades of River Deep Mountain High, and it's equally frenetic in some parts.

    10. My Friend The Sea
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVOKrIjt6cc
    Because it has that lovely Hawaiin lounge-y sound, and at the same time it's a schlager with English lyrics.

    I can’t have any other song other than Downtown because it comes with so many memories that I never want to forget. I think it’s one of the first songs that I knew all the lyrics to.

    1. Downtown
    2. This is My Song
    3. My Love
    4. Don’t Sleep in the Subway
    5. I Know a Place
    6. I Will Follow Him
    7. Colour My World
    8. For All We Know
    9. Now That You've Gone

    Avicii

    av.jpg

    After the tragic death of another very young artist, I thought it would be great to revisit his work.

    Tim Bergling was better known as Avicii (styled as ΛVICII) was a Swedish musician, DJ, remixer and record producer.

    [​IMG]

    Bergling rose to prominence in 2011 with his breakthrough single "Levels". His debut studio album, True (2013)

    It peaked within the top ten in more than fifteen countries and topped the Australian, Swedish, Danish and US dance charts. It was supported by the lead single "Wake Me Up", which topped most music markets in Europe and reached number four in the US. In 2015, he released his second studio album, Stories and in 2017, he released an EP titled Avīci In 2016, he retired from touring due to health reasons. He died on 20 April 2018 in Oman

    I can't wait to rank Avicii songs after his tragic death. I am going away on a business trip in a few hours and will be home late Tuesday, then have a hectic Wednesday & Thursday, so could you wait with tallying up the scores, @Ome? I may not need an extra day, but just in case I won't have time until Friday................

    My most favorite of his songs would be the ones where he collaborated with Madonna on her "Rebel Heart" album. :)
    I've heard songs like "Devil Pray", "Borrowed Time", "Heartbreak city" and "Wash All Over Me" over and over and over in the past three years.

    Anyway if I am to focus on Avicii's solo work this would be my list:

    1. Wake Me Up
    2. Without You
    3. The Nights
    4. Waiting for Love
    5. Broken Arrows
    6. Gonna Love Ya
    7. Hey Brother
    8. The Days
    9. Somewhere In Stockholm
    10. Sunset Jesus

    Just below my list:

    Taste The Feeling
    Heaven

    I think it's kind of odd since a lot of his music feels like party music. It's very young and the type of songs you'll hear when you go out to a nightclub or such and yet listening to his music now all I can think of is that he's gone. It brings out a very weird feeling.

    Welcome to the world of house music! :D But you don't need to go out clubbing to hear his music. Just turn on the radio. ;)

    True enough. I don't know where I have heard his music before. But I am definitely recognizing some songs. :)
