You ain't so bad yourself, Mr. Hysteria. A friend of mine met Def Leppard.

The whole band.

At Wal-Mart.

Regarding Stop Making Sense I almost left it off as it's a live album, and that's kind of cheating...they can play all of their best material from any point in their career, so it's not like a normal album, which usually just encapsulates about a year's worth of songwriting.

But it's just so. Effing. Great.

If I chose to leave it out, I would have slipped More Songs About Buildings and Food into its place. The best of the studio Heads, I think, though all of them are very good.

I unfortunately don't have any Talking Heads albums, but I've seen David Byrne's movie a couple times, forgot what it was called. He is the master of deadpan.

Doesn't the inclusion of Double Fantasy technically turn your list into a Top 9 1/2? ;)

EDIT:
Also...
10. The Blues Brothers-Original Soundtrack Recording

I love you, in a way.
