The Cupface craze & Friends of P
I’ll join the Cupface craze that’s sweeping this blogging community, with my contribution not so unintentionally featuring a Community mug!
“If you’re friends with P, well then you’re friends with me. If you’re down with P, well then you’re down with me”

I am certainly down with the letter P.
So much so that after much consideration, I have arrived at the conclusion that “P” is the strongest artist letter in the alphabet. By the time I get to “S” (or even “R” – I should at least be safe with “Q”) I may have to say just kidding but at the moment, it’s looking tough to top.
Do other letters have superior groups? Indubitably. In fact I’d argue none of the “P” artists are in my Top 5 overall. But the quality & quantity of the “P” list from which to choose is simply astounding!
And so I will leave it in your capable hands. I give you, the Friends of P poll.
Instructions: Choose one “P” from each of the following categories. Though it won’t result in a true Top 5 (you’ve heard of politically correct? This one could be called chronologically correct), I’m interested to see what the top choice is for each era.
Multi-decade artists are listed in the decade in which they first appear on the 1001 list (e.g. Piper at the Gates of Dawn puts Pink Floyd in the 60s, rather than the 70s).
Curiously, there were no “P” artists from the 2000s on the list. Hence, that category is wide open; if a “P” artist released an album in the 21st Century, feel free to vote for them there.
Ballot stuff if you must, results to be revealed later this week, enjoy!
