Two more not on my list.  I've never heard of Brad Delp.  And Paul McCartney's voice is just ok.

You've got to fix that first one.  He was on four Boston albums (the fourth blows), and a LOT of work with Barry Goudreau, original Boston lead
guitarist (Goudreau's solo album, the album "Delp and Goudreau", the band Orion The Hunter, and RTZ). 


Both made my list; both are solid as a rock, IMO.

Best vocal performances: 
Brad Delp:
1. More Than A Feeling (that vocal part at the end of the third verse where he sings "I closed my eyes and she slipped away.... she slipped away" and he carries the note, modulates up, then at the very end modulates up AGAIN... gives me shivers every time).
2. Don't Look Back (the layers and layers of vocals add up to something amazing)
3. Long Time (the scatting after the guitar solo is excellent)
HM:  Hollyann

Paul McCartney:
1. Maybe I'm Amazed
2. Oh! Darling
3. My Love
HM:  Fool On The Hill

Each one is pretty interesting, but the fact that he did ALL of those - and recreated all of them live at various times in his career - is testament to his ability.   One of the great things about McCartney is, he's the bass player of vocalists, in that he knows EXACTLY how to support the people around him; some of his greatest work is doing backgrounds behind John (also a great singer, who didn't make my list for various reasons).

The boyfriend is just an excuse so that if you asked further she would say she can't get the money. It's BS and that person will get hit hard via karma.  That sucks big time, but it's also a big reason why I'm super careful when I send money on venmo because it's incredibly easy to send it to the wrong person. Sorry Chino.

Third wave ska was all the rage when I was entering my teen years, and I like horns, so I kind of dug it.  Some of it hasn't aged incredibly well, but I still have fondness for some of it, and they're one of the better current bands doing it.  That era probably set me up to get into reggae and the smaller amount of skate punk I like.

Brad Delp - I never considered for my top 25 but I have heard of him. I just don't really listen to any of his music and he has no influence on me but I appreciate he is a great vocalist.

Paul McCartney - number 18 for me. Just really love his voice and of course his musical output.

I'm not well versed in how Venmo works, and thanks to a fat fingering on my phone's screen, I managed to send $350 to the wrong account. I found the user on Facebook since she used her real name on Venmo, and her reply was "Lol. Sucks. Already sent to my BF. He got it now ✌".

I hope her holidays are terrible.

What a C Note.  People are terrible.

Further proof of our societal decline. A person like that has no conscience whatsoever. Please, karma, strike her down.

Contact Venmo customer service. They may be able to help.

Not to minimize your loss, but why the hell did she give it to her boyfriend?

They can't do anything. I had entered a verification PIN incorrectly, and I accidentally hit the button confirming that I knew that. Next thing I know, I'm out $350. Because of that, they wouldn't issue a refund as it'd basically be a $350 loss for them. They said doing so would make them too open to fraud.   

As for the giving it to the boyfriend, I'll be a bit judgmental here based on her and his Facebook profile... drugs is my guess.
