|15 Years on Sput/MX|
Thought I'd make a list on my 15th year day on MX. Wow, time flies doesn't it? Here is my current top 10 favorite songs of all time, ranked.
|1||Type O Negative|
World Coming Down
THE best song of all time.
I first bought this disc in 1995 and I listened to it religiously. This song is the epitome of genius and passion. This album is a masterpiece in itself but Fire Woman remains always in my top 5. I remember hearing it for the first time on the radio and I called the station and asked who it was, boy my life changed after that moment. Masterpiece.
Return To Serenity
It's pretty strange how I discovered this song, actually. I was on a chat server called Pantera Chat and this girl on the server was named Serenity. I asked her if that was her real name (like an idiot), and she said "no, I got it from the song Return To Serenity by Testament". Instantly I was intrigued. I never heard The Ritual when it came out but I ordered the disc and went straight to that song. What a great memory!
Stone The Crow
If it wasn't for this site I wouldn't have got into this like I did and oh boy, it was worth it. This song is a masterpiece in iteself, everything about it is pure gold. The vibe Down create here is lost in the process and with that, it makes a very unique song and something that means a lot to me at the same time. Thanks inflameswethrash bro, let the metal flow!
Welcome to Sky Valley
I think I have listened to this song about 1,000 times now, probably less, probably more, all I know is it never gets old and it is a true classic across all genres. Everything about this song is top tier and it is one of the most important songs ever written, to me.
When the Kite String Pops
Scream Of The Butterfly
I will never forget the first time I heard this. My best friend at the time, and my bassist, kept telling me to check this song out circa 1999. I didn't know much about Acid Bath at the time, but he got sick of me putting him off and forced me to listen to this one night while we were baked. One of tghe best moments of my life. We listened to it several times after, same night.
Oh man, this song should explain itself but a truly remarkable recording in a live setting. I tend to stay away from live songs when it comes to favorites, but this is a different kettle of fish here.
Stone In Love
I had a small speaker circa 1993, the only thing I had to listen to music on, it was like a 6" krakomatic, it always sat horizontal on my dresser next to my radio. This song came on once and I decided to pour salt on the speaker to see it jump around while the sound came through. What a great moment! I will never forget this song as long as I live, easily best songs ever recorded and brings the memories hard every time I hear it. It's all about the intro, but the outro though...
Starless and Bible Black
The Night Watch
Rembrandt. What a great topic. What band decided to record a song about a painting, bringing it to life? King Crimson, that's who. This is, and has always been and probably will be one of my all time favorite songs ever. I have listened to this a thousand times and still have no clue how they even recorded half of this song. It is a masterpiece.
Late for the Sky
For A Dancer
This is a song about loss, about realization, about hope, about death. This song is so powerful I can't listen to it at certain times. It hits me like a ton of bricks. The line "in the end there is one dance you'll do alone" seals the deal. What a remarkable song and a great gem from Jackson Browne.
I love Pink Floyd. They were the first band I ever had an obsession with way back when I was a teenager. As the years pass, I tend to hold on to certain memories of songs by bands I once really liked. I still love Pink Floyd and seeing Wish You Were Here as a top album on this site makes me feel elated. I used to listen to that cassette so much it was blank at one point, literally looked like a Maxell blank. But back to Mother. This song is the highlight of the album here, to me. This song is a parable. Probably one of the best in the sense I have ever heard. I can't describe it anymore, when you get older you tend to relate to songs/things that were in front of your face the entire time but couldn't comprehend.
|12||The Black Crowes|
Shake Your Money Maker
She Talks To Angels
One of my best friends growing up used to hang out with me all the time when we were teenagers. She was so smart, funny and full of life, very vibrant. We used to make forts out of the couch cushions and we had a blast just hanging around. I moved away and didn't see her again. Until 1997. She was a mess and had a hardcore addiction to Methamphetines. I barely recognized her. She overdosed and died in 2001. This song reminds me of her. I bit of a sad tale but I will always retain her image from when we were kids in my head and when I hear this song, it reminds me of her. She got sucked into it. Great song and that experience alone makes this a top song for me because of that.
|13||Alice in Chains|
Jar of Flies
I can't explain how or why I like this so much, but it's always with me in my heart and I love the hell out of this song. There is nothing else quite like this. The epitome of sadness and reprisal in one song. Their finest achievement.
|14||Edge of Sanity|
I was a little late to the game on this release but when I first checked it out, I was blown away. I love the production on this album as well as the call back riffs throughout. This is one magnificent album and it is beautiful in every aspect. Truly one of the best songs ever recorded. I just wish it was longer!
Light of Day, Day of Darkness
Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
Okay so this song is over 1 hour long. The amount of work Tchort put into this is astounding. He had several musicians, worked on it for years and even a childrens choir. I think I read somewhere once over 700 different samples were used in recording this masterpiece. I ordered this disc and when it came, I got a few of my friends together to listen to it in 2002. It was a great experience. This song was inspired by the death of Tchort's Daughter and the birth of his Son, hence Light of Day (Son's birth) and Day Of Darkness (Daughter's death). Even though this song is over an hour long, I have listened to it probably over 500 times. maybe more. A groundbreaking album and nothing in the genre can come close to this epic tale and production.
|Wtf had no idea you're so old. I'm only 11 years. Congrats. |
|Happy sputversary dude 🎂 |
|Sweet list. Should've made it longer! I happened to have heard 3 of these for one reason or another in the past week (Fire Woman, Return to Serenity, and Stone in Love). |
|Agreed Kj, this list should definitely be longer and more in-depth. 15 years on Sput and only 12 albums?? There should be 15 albums! Also please make a good tech-death list in the near future Kaiwaz. Happy 15 year sputniversary. I hope it lived up to the hype. It definitely did for me. Discovered some crazy albums today, thanks. |
|you've been here as long as driftys life |
|Congrats mate! \m/|
I'm almost 17
|Wow, you old fuck.|
|coming up on 14 soon. cheers mate!|
|Yeah, Drifter's balls just dropped which means he's probably gonna be dead soon. Your days are numbered now, this mortal coil is a bitch. |
|Shit, my 12 year is coming up.|
I'm rarely on though. Built my base of what I like here. Spotify makes finding music easier than this place ever did.
|Ho-lee hell that is a long time. You must be in the top 10 oldest active users for sure|
|You da OG my dude. Happy Sputversary.|
|Parole board keeps turning down, huh? Well, hope they free you soon!|
|hey great list! it's crazy cool that you've been around so long. |
|Son of Mr. Pain|
|Damn. You’re the real OG on campus. Everyone else must answer to you.|
|Wow, I did not realise you'd been here that long. Props.|
Some cool songs here.
|you can't delete whiteprideworldwide|
|Commiserations boss. Solid list tho ; )|
|Congrats, dude. Here's to 15 more.|
|My 14 year anny is coming up, I expect an extremely phallic trophy|
|You tell me, man, I'm at an age where when older people say "oh well you're still young" and I think "eh..."|
|Nice list. I apparently missed 15 last year, coming up on 16 in August. Realized it when someone pointed out that miss machine is 15 years old. Never thought this place would last so long but I’m glad it has |
The Ritual is such an underrated album.
|There are those that made it through the MJ era. Then there are those that said "wait, did ShadowsFallen post the same verbose intro on another review?".|
|Nice man, this is my 10th year.|
|MSN was great. ICQ and mIRC as well. Been here about half that time myself but I'll get there eventually maybe assuming this site is still up and running by them. Our own broken corner of the interwebs.|
|I thought MSN died in like 2000, I remember trying to find my friends on there in early middle school, but AIM had taken over by then.|
|Hm, maybe Mikesn? Anyway, I have no idea what those other clients are, so I really am the old guy.|
|I also used to MSN and AIM ShadowsFallen.|
cbmartinez was cool too.
|Somewhere around 2006 I started downloading albums as WinRAR files (can't remember from where, basically like Megaupload type shit) and got tons of stuff that way.|
|Happy sputversary dude! I just had my tenth! :o|
|Them's a lotta years.|
|15 years too many log off|
