Top 5 On Friday

Over at The Music Memoirs they ask for the top 5 greatest hits albums, so here goes:

1. The Beach Boys - Not sure what the album was called (probably something along the line of 20 Golden Greats) but it was the first time I'd been exposed to The Beach Boys (invariably Greatest Hits albums have a bigger impact if it's the first time you've come across the artist/band, because otherwise you're already familiar with most of the tunes).

2. It would be remiss if I didn't includes either the Beatles' blue greatest hits or red greatest hits.

3. The Four Seasons - Again not sure what the album was actually called (maybe something imaginative like The Four Seasons Greatest Hits) but my sister bought it when I was a teenager and it was the first time I'd come across them. I remember being really impressed by how many great songs were on there (loved Electric Stories).

4. The Hollies - similar comments as those for The Four Seasons

5. Madness - Some great tunes and interesting notes about them by the band. Also their greatest hits albums actually had memorable titles (Complete Madness, followed by Utter Madness, collected together in Divine Madness).
