Very debatable. The Specials, rather than The Smiths?
Funny, I was in a pub with a friend of mine
He's 65. He was reading out these lists trying to say it proves Stones Roses and Primal Svream are better than Smiths
Also why Damon Albarn
Liam G, Jarvis Cocker, John lydon and that singer from D Mode we're better more important than M
I mean you can bend almost any list or get another list to support these arguments.
The thing that got me was that anyone over 18 could fall for this "best lp " , "most important pop singer "
it's such childish bullshit and means nothing.
it's something mostly boy men simps fall for it.
its made up and fake and mainly a question of fashion and almost purely subjective to a large degree.
the fact there are people out there who think they are "cool" cause they know every song on The Falls demo tape , is hilarious to me
myself I put M number one above Dylan and Lennon and Cohen and Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell and Bowie
To me smiths and M are top of any trees.
I like the Roses, Joy D ,the fall and magazine but none are anywhere near as good as M and smiths
I know others have their own fave's and that is ok
Why are people so pigshit thick they fall for this list stuff ?
Not attacking anyone here. General point
