The answer is No...Not even sure I could knock it down limiting it to singles only...or even per decade...

My 'Top 20' tracks wouldn't necessarily be my 'Desert Island Top 20'. A Desert island selection would be wilfully diverse, just to keep some variety, year after year, with nothing else to do, except start arguments with myself 8-)

My top 20 would be a load of Van Halen and Zappa.

Wow, that's a pretty narrow list.


There's no denying it's a very narraw list musically; all rock, including 3 songs by one group, and all recorded within about a 10-year period.
No value judgements need be attached, either about the quality of the music on there or the person who chose them. But facts are facts.

Fewer than seven years, as it happens. Exactly corresponding to BF's teenage years, I would guess.
