    Default What is your "Best Of"?

    Let's say you wanted to educate someone who knows nothing or very little about music, and you had to create a compilation or "Best Of". Of course we are talking about the most relevant artists/bands in the past 50 years. The catch: You can only pick 10 songs.

    What would your choices be?

    Let's start with: RADIOHEAD

    My personal "Best of Radiohead"

    - Paranoid Android
    - Fake Plastic Trees
    - Just
    - Everything in it's Right Place
    - 2 + 2 =5
    - Subterranean Homesick Alien
    - No Surprises
    - All I Need
    - Knives Out
    - Jigsaw Falling Into Place

    Relevance is totally subjective. There's a lot of music that is quite popular on this board that I find irrelevant. The same will be said of my tastes as well.

    Sexcellent!! I had denial twist on my list by the way. Also, GREAT call on the ones in bold. Hearing "the union forever" live was INtense, and I would give my left nut for a no holds-barred free for all version of Little Acorns
