999 Songs


As a consumer of music I am a split personality.

I am both a satisficer and a maximiser.

For thirty years my addiction has been rock music of the 60s and 70s.

I am still on an endless quest to hear all the best there is and the journey still thrills me after hearing many thousands of albums.

Here you will find the 999 songs for the music satisficer in me. 999 songs that touch something very deep in me.

It is an un-impartial and subjective list. You’ll see a lot that’s  familiar and a lot that probably isn’t,  unless you share my obsessions.

In alaphebetical order, this is today’s list, tomorrow there could be 999 more songs.

The songs, unless otherwise noted are the original recordings by the listed artists.

There is nothing on this list recorded after 1975.

There have been innovations since and there has been a lot of great music, but 1965 t0 1975 were 10 years of unparalleled musical exploration and remain beacons to us all.

After you’d read the list I’d be very interested to hear what your 1000th song would be.
