Normally this would encompass alot of various musics, however the only thing that Jyuu listened to this year seemed to be Take That. (okay that's not the truth, there were a few artists that shined through, but the majority of her listening comprised itself of pretty boybandedness.) So she decided to offer up her top twenty picks of all of Take That's discography. Snag, grab and perhaps comment saying what you liked or perhaps didn't like. These are her personal favorites though and are in no way keeping with the opinions of other Take That Acolytes (hey, everyone is different amirite?)
Why Take That you wonder? Because they write very -real- love songs, that is why I love them. They are strong and earthy but with that whisper of whimsy. I don't get moved by love songs that easily, but I can honestly say that all of Take That's songs seem to be a love song to life, to hope, to patience and all of those things that make love worth it. Instead of overdoing it on the techno and synths, they really do it classy and implement the classics, violins, pianos and other such instruments that are not used so often in pop. They honestly win and I'm more then happy to share them with you...
So come on in and enjoy the ride.
