Listography: Top 5 albums by male solo artists

As ever, the lovely Kate over at Kate takes 5 has given us another great theme for this weeks listography! I love listening to music, although, in trying to complete this weeks list, I have come to realise that I mainly listen to bands and female solo artists!!
However, I love a challenge and with a lot of rifling through my CDs, I have managed to find my top 5 male solo artists :)

1. Richard Marx - Greatest Hits

I remember that 'Hazard' was one of the first cassette tapes I ever bought myself! On the other side happened to be another song of his that I absolutely love 'Right Here Waiting', which became my wedding song! Hubby and I spent 4 years apart, whilst I was at Uni (we got engaged just before I left) and hubby had been right at home, waiting for me! I got this song played at my 30th birthday party on Saturday as well :)

2. Bryan Adams - Best of Me

Ever since I heard the song 'All for Love' from the Disney film 'The Three Musketeers' I have loved Bryan Adams!
I used to listen to his music all the time when trying to get through writing my assignments at Uni!
Still love listening to him when I'm busy crafting :)

3. Andrea Boccelli - Romanza

I do love a huge range of music! Andrea Boccelli is my favourite classical artist!
I always listen to music when I'm 'playing' on the computer and Andrea Boccelli is one of my favourites for late night, relaxing sessions :)

4. Michael Buble - It's Time

I love listening to some of the 'golden oldies' from the 40's / 50's and think that Michael Buble has done wonders for re-introducing a new generation to the magic of 'Big Bands' and Jazz music.

Up to this point, I had no trouble in finding the artists that I really liked!
It came a close run between Bruno Mars and Michael Jackson, but in the end, Michael Jackson won!
(sentiment won in the end!)

so 5. Michael Jackson - The complete Michael Jackson: Epic Music

I don't care what opinion people have about Michael Jackson as a person. I loved him when I was little and I love him still now!

So there you have it, my top 5 male artists.

Right, I'm off to have a look and see who made it to the top 5 of other lists!


  1. What a great selection! I love Richard Marx and Bryan Adams, they made my short list before it was sadly whittled down to just 5 :)

  2. I must admit I'm a little in love with Michael Buble :)

  3. An eclectic mix! Bryan Adam's reminds me of uni too, more of playing air guitar to summer of '69 on the dancefloor though, than doing assignments to ;-)

  4. A you ol' romantic! Bryan Adams definitely brings back memories (not all good!)

  5. Richard Marx and Bryan Adams are great choices!

  6. From one Richard Marx lover to another, great list! My boyfriend wrangled me a poster of his first album from the record store in 1987, and we managed to have such a good time, we set it on the roof of the car when getting in and drove off. Still haunts me to this day... ;)
