The Top is the fifth studio album by British alternative rock band the Cure, released on 30 April 1984 by record label Fiction. It entered the UK Albums Chart at N°10 on 12 May. Shortly after its release, the Cure embarked on a major UK tour culminating with a three-night residency at the Hammersmith Odeon in London.
You're the Top" is a Cole Porter song from the 1934 musical Anything Goes. It is about a man and a woman who take turns complimenting each other. The best-selling version was Paul Whiteman's Victor single, which made the top five. It was the most popular song from Anything Goes at the start with hundreds of parodies. The lyrics are particularly notable because they offer a snapshot as to what was highly prized in the mid-1930s and demonstrate Porter's rhyming ability.
From the Top is a box set by the Carpenters, released in 1991, which contains everything from the Richard Carpenter Trio recordings from 1965 to their biggest hits in the early 1970s to the last song ever recorded by the Carpenters: "Now".

his top four spots, this time The Rolling Stones. Ben Kaye of Consequence of Sound wrote that "if Laura Snapes had her wish, the top four would all be The National albums". Kaye criticised the list for the lack of women and black artists in the top ten, and thought it was predictable that the majority of artists in the top ten were British. He wrote: The Smiths’ The Queen Is Dead is the greatest album of all time. It’s better than anything the Beatles ever did (though Revolver came close)
But just because they don't sound like they're warring against imminent oblivion doesn't mean they aren't still fighting the good fight - they're just the rare punks who realized they didn't actually hope they died before they got old. Near to the Wild Heart of Life captures Japandroids upon the realization that their travels North East South West don't mean much if they don't have a home to come back to, and the set bleeds gratitude at the realization that they, in fact, d. Ed Sheeran took 2017 by storm right out of the gate with two top 10 hit singles from his third record, including the year’s most-streamed track on this site, the inescapably catchy Shape Of You. Impressive numbers aside, Sheeran’s ified third album was quintessentially Ed, continuing his effortless one-man show with impressive guitar, singing and, yes, rap skills.

Over the years they’ve teamed with indie-rock violinist Petra Haden, shoegaze-metal stalwarts Boris, noise artist Merzbow and a parade of black-metal vocalists. Inspired by the free-form/longform work of Miles Davis’ electric era, sixth album Monoliths & Dimensions is their most expansive to date. Here, the band opens their dark drones up to string, brass and choir arrangements courtesy of Seattle composer Eyvind Kang, giving their long-held notes cinematic drama.
