Hammer's list of lists 

2005 edition, newly updated

2005 edition, newly updated
Whenever I get bored, I start making lists. It doesn't matter what the category is; I've made a list of it. Every now and then, I gather the lists together and modify them based on my current feelings. Making lists is fun, although I find that my choices become more cemented the older I get. Can there ever be an album that matches Sly Stone or James Brown? Will a film ever be better than The Godfather? And, every now and again, I print them in this column, hoping to receive similar lists from readers. In that spirit, here is my most recent list of lists. Disagree with my choices? Send yours to me at shammer@nuvo.net.
