The Hoff, obviously!

I was torn between William Shatner's "Transformed Man" and David Hasselhoff's "You Are Everything". To list both, or list one and risk shunning the other. What to do? :confused:

I cherish both also; I think the only difference between them for me is "Starlings Of The Slipstream" on Brighten The Corners, which is my fave Pavement song.

Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
Stevie Wonder - Talking Book
Escada - those are wonderful albums. "Sir Duke" and "Superstition " always make me want to shake my rumpus. Have you ever listed to Proud Mary: The Best of Ike and Tina Turner? From what you listed it seems as though you would really like it. "River Deep Mountain High" is wonderful and you have to love an album with a song called "Funkier Than a Mosquita's Tweeter ". The first few songs on the album from their earlier days are good- but not great, but the last 2/3 of the album is loads of fun imo.

Another album that I have to list for myself is Compact Snap by The Jam. I've owned it for years and it never gets old.

That's just because Stevie Wonder is a legend :worship:
He deserves all the awards that there are ;)

Yes, I know that album and I like it, I also like Tina's solo albums. River Deep Mountain High is great!
