Top ski resorts I have been to:
1. Fernie - Canada
2. Kitzsteinhorn - Austria
3. Whistler - Canada
4. Thredbo - Australia
5. Tigne - France
I know there are plenty of places that would knock this list about, but I just havn't been there.
I grew up in Thredbo I didn't really rate Whistler as there were too many Aussies :P

As for a top 5...

Re: High Fidelity 5's (whats your top 5 anything)

Top 5 Bitter Break-up Songs (with sample lyric)

1. Song For The Dumped - Ben Folds Five (i wish I hadn't bought you dinner / right before you dumped me on your front porch / give me my money back, you b*tch)
2. No Distance Left To Run - Blur (i won't kill myself trying to stay in your life / i got no distance left to run)
3. War Of The Worlds - Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly (I know I can be / everything you want me to be / but we haven't talked in days / in fact it's been a matter of weeks / so the next time that you need me, don't expect a call)
4. I Had A Time - Embrace (I won't see your smiling face / but I won't see your smiling fade away / and I'll know I had the time of my life that day)
5. Selfless, cold and composed - Ben Folds Five (don't just stare like you never cared, I know you did / but you just smile, like a bank teller, blankly telling me "have a nice life")

Re: High Fidelity 5's (whats your top 5 anything)

5 best cities ever been to/lived in:

01. Berlin - home, sweet home
02. London - is it home of the free or what?
03. Paris - bataillon d'amour
04. Rome - cultural overkill
05. Zürich - still have to figure it out somehow...

OK then, so how about the

Top 5 "relationships are great" songs...

1. Wake Up Boo - The Boo Radleys (I shouldn't be up at this time / but I can't sleep with you there by my side)
2. Ash - Oh Yeah (her eyes were making silent demands / and as her hair came undone in my hands / oh yeah, she was taking me over)
3. You And Me Song - The Wannadies (then we watch TV / until we fall asleep / not very exciting / but it's you and me / and we'll always be together)
4. Green Eyes - Coldplay (I came here with a load / and it is so much lighter now I've met you)
5. Someday - Embrace (it just don't matter too much to me / if you can't run, cause I will carry / you upon my back until you're safe)

TOP 5 CELEBRITY CHEFS WHO CAN'T COOK

1. Keith Floyd
That guy is my inspiration when it comes to cooking. However much alcohol there is in the dish, it needs more. The only restriction is that the quantity of alcohol in the food must, at all times, be exceeded by the amount of alcohol that goes into the cook while preparing the dish.

Re: High Fidelity 5's (whats your top 5 anything)

Top 5 bands:
  • Dream Theater
  • Spock's Beard
  • Jethro Tull
  • Iron Maiden
  • Megadeth
Weird combination, but what can you do ???

Top 5 dishes:
  • Argentinean BBQ (asado, vacío, chorizo, morcilla, chinchulines y molleja)
  • Pizza (good old Margherita does the trick just fine)
  • Wiener Schnietzel w/fries
  • Spaghetti Bolognesa
  • Subway's Crab & Seafood
Top 5 reads:
  • Cortazar complete works
  • A Confederacy of dunces, by John Kennedy Toole
  • The night of the oracle, by Paul Auster
  • The catcher in the rye
  • Stephen King's "The dark tower" series (I know, it's cheating, but still...it's a guilty pleassure)
Mmm, easy with the music and the food, but the books it's a lot tougher. I would like to include also a recent "discovery" called The shadow of the wind, by a Spanish writer called Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Jailbird by Vonnegut...ufff.

Totally agree...the guy's the best anti-chef there's ever been. I couldn't wait to get home from school and watch "Floyd Gets Pi**ed".

Top 5 motivating songs
1. Carmen Electra - Go-Go Dancer (especially the video)
2. Anything by Sigue Sigue Sputnik - they're a modern-day Hawkwynd!
3. Sylvester - Do You Want to Funk?
4. Man 2 Man Meet Man Parrish - Male Stripper (played in Leo's is even better)
5. Mel and Kim - Respectable
Hey-hey - good selection (no 2 aside), especially M2MMMP 'male stripper' ......& with quality lyrics like 'Built like a truck, I'd bump for a buck, tits in my G-string make my living' - well u just can't go wrong

Dammit, limiting to 5 motivating songs is tough:
1. Release the Pressure - Leftfield
2. Good Luck - Basement Jaxx
3. Take me back to your house - Basement Jaxx
4. Natural Gambler - Braun Reynolds
5. Searching - Hazel Dean

Top Beatles song:
A day in the life
