    Thanks @Ome, that makes it clearer, some artists release a b-side sometimes as a single but after my knowledge it happens very rare, so we just keep the A-sides as singles releases. :)

    I agree @Ome, we all know which song will make the list and not, so it's a great idea to make these kind of list for unknown songs. :)

    After Gold and More Gold, I'd have liked an Even More Gold seeing as there was more than enough for a track list made up of songs that had been singles somewhere. I'd have bought that, just for singles completeness sake.
    Also, at the time I assumed all the tracks on More Gold had been singles. As wonderful as the (4?) non singles are, it annoys me that they're on there.

    1. Me And I
    2. Our Last Summer
    3. If It Wasn't For The Night
    4. Like An Angel Passing Through My Room
    5. When I Kissed The Teacher
    6. I Let The Music Speak
    7. The King Has Lost His Crown
    8. I Wonder (Departure)
    9. I Am Just A Girl
    10. I Am The City

    1. My love my life
    2. Dance (while the music still goes on)
    3. Me and I
    4. As good as new
    5. When I kissed the teacher
    6. Hasta manana
    7. Disillusion
    8. If it wasn't for the nights
    9. Cassandra
    10. Crazy world

    Also I would be up for listing songs from Agnetha and Frida's solo careers but would prefer one round for Frida and another for Agnetha. There is enough good songs to do both. :)

    Simon Vs Garfunkel


    SvA.jpg


    This round we are looking at the solo work from these two guys. As always, if you have ten favourites from both sides, then please post the two lists and I will include them in the final tally

    Paul Frederic Simon (born October 13, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. Simon's musical career has spanned seven decades, with his fame and commercial success beginning as half of the duo Simon & Garfunkel (originally known as Tom & Jerry)

    [​IMG]

    Simon began a successful solo career, recording three acclaimed albums over the next five years. In 1986, he released Graceland, an album inspired by South African township music, which sold 14 million copies worldwide on its release.






    Arthur Ira Garfunkel (born November 5, 1941) is an American singer, poet, math teacher and actor. He is best known for his partnership with Paul Simon in the folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.

    [​IMG]

    Highlights of his solo music career include a top 10 hit, three top 20 hits, six top 40 hits, 14 Adult Contemporary top 30 singles, five Adult Contemporary number ones, two UK number ones and a People's Choice Award. Through his solo and collaborative work, Garfunkel has earned eight Grammys, including a Lifetime Achievement Award

    Hm, this was not as enjoyable as I thought it would be.
    Art's songs are all coverversions and those songs that I like aren't better than the original performances (e.g. "Watermark" by Richard Harris or "Breakaway" by Lyle & Gallagher).
    So that leaves me with Bright Eyes - which I liked as a child - but somehow over the years it has morphed into a guilty pleasure, and now in 2018 it almost sounds like a parody.

    Post-S&G Paul Simon doesn't sound like S&G at all (OK, why should he?) but I've managed to find some good tunes.
    But all that happy tribal and pina colada stuff (basically, from the Graceland album onwards) isn't my cup of tea.
    Sooo....anway, that's why my meager top 5 looks like this:

    1. Train In The Distance (PS)
    2. Kodachrome (PS)
    3. Duncan (PS)
    4. Take Me To The Mari Grass (PS)
    5. Bright Eyes (AG) - for nostalgia's sake

    I'm kind of immune to Paul Simon. The only solo thing of his I really like is '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover' and even then I prefer Cilla Black's Saturday night TV version:

    Oops, I found a trash-y dancecover in my collection. But it's really not my fault, one of my enemies must have put it there. To discredit me.

    I was going to break up for my holidays after doing these two guys, but with the sad news of Aretha Franklin, I'm going to give S&G another 24 hours and then make the last top ten all about Aretha.
