Postby Richard » Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:49 am

If members would like to list their ten favourite M&P tracks IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE I will work out the forum's favourite tracks in order. Sorry, no lists of random order! The order is important, as I will award 10 points to your favourite, down to 1 point for your 10th favourite. To kick things off here's mine;
1st California Dreamin'
2nd Monday Monday
3rd Go where you wanna go
4. Dedicated to the one I love
5. Creeque Alley
6. I saw her again last night.
7. Twelve thirty.
8. Look through my window
9. Dancing Bear.
10.Safe in my garden.

Looking forward to reading those lists. Rich.

Thanks Chris and Nicole for your top 10s. Some interesting choices there. Chris, I guess you like the 2nd LP the best!
Great choice of #1 Nicole! That's 3 out of 4 so far that have placed California Dreamin in the top position! :) I'm sure it must be the best song to have ever been recorded by anyone. It still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end after all these years of hearing it!
When a few more lists have been submitted I'll start posting results. It'll be ongoing so new members can take part, and I'll do updates every so often. Rich.

Hi Richard-
1. California Dreamin'
2.I Call Your Name
3. Go Where You Wanna Go
4.Words Of Love
5. My Heart Stood Still
6. Dancing In The Street
7. I Saw Her Again
8. Creeque Alley
9. Safe In My Garden
10. Twelve Thirty

When California Dreamin' was first released, everyone in my age group at that time sang along with it every time. the rock and roll stations played it every day for like two years. It was a song that you never got tired of. Come to think of it, I'm not tired of it even now! I often wonder how many copies of this have been sold ( singles/ albums) since day one. More than just a few.
