Best of Biffy Volume 1 - The Top 10 If You Don't Know Them

To say that Tina and I have become huge Biffy Clyro fans is an understatement. We are both big music fans but as you get older, music starts to sound tired. That changed for us in 2011. It was a rainy Saturday afternoon and Tina was in the living room watching the 2011 Glastonbury Festival on Palladia ( MTV Live). She said, "You have to see this band" There was this band playing in front of  a 100K people. They all seemed to know the song (Many of Horror). I had never heard of them but was blown away and thought "how could this many people know these songs and not be worth checking out?" I bought the Only Revolutions CD and was hooked. I then bought their next few cd's and was a fan (or so I thought). We have talked about if they ever toured near us (Ocean City Md) we should go to see them. On Friday April 4th 2017, we  (Tina, our daughter Katie and her friend Lynn) saw them at The Theatre of Living Arts in Philly. We were blown away by the power of the songs. We have been to a lot of live shows and we agreed this was the best we have ever seen. It changed how we viewed them which was already pretty good. The obsession started. I was hooked. I was hooked the way I was hooked on The Counting Crows album "August and Everything After" but with all of their albums. We saw them again in Baltimore in May and going to Baltimore again in September. I wondered how others don't know them. That being said, if I had to make a list of 10 songs of theirs to try and convert someone this would be it.They are not necessarily my favorites ( that list will come later) but definitely their most accessible songs in my opinion  .

Carmellia Geasey's (Stacey's Mom) All Time top 15

Carmellia is my great friend Stacey's Mom. I have been on a 60's and 70's music kick lately so I asked her to do an all time top 15 songs. She has always been a  huge music fan so here is her list.
I'm still waiting for Stacey's list.

6 Great Songs From The 80's Volume 32

I got a few of these songs stuck in my head the last few weeks so I decided to do a quick post with a few similar songs from the same early 80's era.
