    Yeah. They sure were. Presley's last good performance was Aloha From Hawaii in '73. Probably his best ever, but that's my own conjecture.

    Agreed about ABBA. I liked them, too. I almost said that when I saw em on c4all's list.

    I like Classical and opera; but they weren't on the list. Some Sopranos sound like cats being put through a bandsaw and a lot of opera is second rate.

    Agree on Chopin; beautiful but Tchaikovsky is magical.

    Hmmm: ACDC were indeed fantastic but had been around a while as a garage band. Bob Marley...of course.

    Bowie was GREAT!!

    I have XM #47 going right now FLY. Old school rap. Don't know if it's the "best" but it comes pretty darn close IMHO.

    The new spotlight on indie is encouraging too.

    80s - tons of good music coming out of Great Britain and it was the birth of Music TV.
