    Create a "Best Of"

    Does one of your favourite bands not have a decent Best Of collection available?

    Perhaps you'd just like to see a collection of said band's songs from a certain era available on one album.

    Perhaps it's a new band that doesn't have enough album material to record a Best Of yet, but whose live recordings, B-sides and rarities would make for a good album on their own.

    Whatever the case, I thought it might be interesting to come up with some ideas for something like this. I got the idea when I was thinking earlier about how if Guns N' Roses had released Use Your Illusion as one album instead of two, it would have been a lot better. So without further ado, I present...

    Guns N' Roses - Use Your Illusion

    1. Civil War
    2. Don't Damn Me
    3. Bad Obsession
    4. November Rain
    5. Locomotive
    6. Knockin' On Heaven's Door
    7. Double Talkin' Jive
    8. You Could Be Mine
    9. Get In The Ring
    10. Estranged
    11. Yesterdays
    12. Live And Let Die
    13. Don't Cry

    And another one, just for good measure - I've even named it, I'm that cool...

    Hyper Music - The Best Of Muse 2001-2006

    1. New Born
    2. Starlight
    3. Citizen Erased
    4. Map Of The Problematique
    5. Plug In Baby
    6. Sing For Absolution
    7. Darkshines
    8. Assassin
    9. Time Is Running Out
    10. Showbiz
    11. Bliss
    12. Supermassive Black Hole
    13. Invincible
    14. Muscle Museum
    15. Hysteria
    16. Feeling Good
    17. Stockholm Syndrome

    Good idea. If AC/DC ever released such an album, it should look like this:

    AC/DC - Strap it on: 2 Discs

    1. Hell's Bells
    2. If you want blood
    3. Back in black
    4. Gone Shootin'
    5. Ballbreaker
    6. Jailbreak
    7. T.N.T
    8. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
    9. Rocker
    10. Highway to Hell
    11. High Voltage
    12. Shot Down In flames
    13. What's Next to the moon?
    14. Thunderstruck
    15. Ain't No fun (waiting around to be a millionaire)
    16. Its a long way to the top
    17. Bedlam in Belgium
    18. Shoot to thrill
    19. Guns for hire
    20. Let there be rock
    21. Whole lotta rosie
    22. For those about to rock (we salute you!)

    "You Shook Me all night long" misses out due to it being a pop music song.

    I'll have a go at a Nick Cave one. Exclusively for the Bad Seed period, roughly split between the old and new material, but with a bias to the pre-Nocturama stuff, largely because it's better. Only two studio albums missing material.

    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Best Of
    01. Cabin Fever!
    02. Saint Huck
    03. Tupelo
    04. Train Long-Suffering
    05. Your Funeral... My Trial...
    06. The Carny
    07. Sad Waters
    08. The Mercy Seat
    09. Deanna
    10. Papa Won't Leave You, Henry
    11. John Finn's Wife
    12. Do You Love Me?
    13. Red Right Hand
    14. The Ballad of Robert Moore and Betty Coltrane
    15. Henry Lee
    16. Into My Arms
    17. West Country Girl
    18. As I Sat Sadly By Her Side
    19. Darker With The Day
    20. O Children

    So much good stuff left out, even with 20 tracks.

    Haha, I thought you'd pick up on that. Oddly I also thought you were the one I first heard say that.

    TBH though, as much as I love the UYI albums, there's a bit of filler on there which could have been reserved for B-sides or even another separate album further down the line - the track listing I've provided would have been a damn good effort on its own.

    Excellent idea for a thread!

    I'll do my favourite band first. I'll limit myself to fourteen songs as it seems a decent length for a best of compo. The order is simply vaguley chronological.

    2) Reel Around The Fountain (The Smiths version)
    3) What Difference Does it Make? (Hatful of Hollow version)
    4) This Charming Man
    5) Heaven Knows Iím Miserable Now
    6) Please, Please, Please Let me Get What I Want
    7) How Soon is Now?
    8) What She Said
    9) That Joke Isnít Funny Anymore
    10) The Queen is Dead
    11) I Know itís Over
    12) Cemetry Gates
    13) Death of a Disco Dancer
    14) Paint a Vulgar Picture


    & the best pop band ever:

    Forever Fabulous: The Best of The Beatles

    1) Twist & Shout
    2) A Hard Dayís Night
    3) Daytripper
    4) Norweigan Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
    5) Paperback Writer
    6) Eleanor Rigby
    7) Iím Only Sleeping
    8) Tomorrow Never Knows
    9) Strawberry Fields Forever
    10) Penny Lane
    11) A Day in the Life
    12) Lady Madonna
    13) Helter Skelter
    14) Come Together


    It can't be done. Fourteen's too few!

    How about condensing the Beatles White album into one disc, of not much more than 40 minutes.....

    I have done it and its damned hard to do. Have messed with the running order so it sounds more like a proper album.

    SIDE ONE

    1. Back In The USSR
    2. Dear Prudence
    3. Glass Onion
    4. Happiness Is A Warm Gun
    5. I'm So Tired
    6. Everybodys Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey
    7. Julia

    SIDE TWO

    1. Birthday
    2. Revolution 1
    3. Sexy Sadie
    4. Cry Baby cry
    5. Helter Skelter
    6. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    Now that my friends would have had the makings of maybe the greatest album of all time, as it is it has to make do with maybe in the all time top 10
    rave down, hit the ground
