Vatican's Top 10: Jacko to the Beatles

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Call it the Vatican's 10 commandments for good listening.

The Holy See's newspaper Saturday published its picks for pop rock paradise, ranging from Michael Jackson's album "Thriller" to Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" and the Beatles' "Revolver."

What L'Osservatore Romano calls a semiserious guide on the road to good music will take you to "Graceland" — Paul Simon's album made the cut. And it does get into the "Supernatural" by Carlos Santana.

The newspaper calls them classics to pack for a desert island. The other picks are David Crosby's "If I Could Only Remember My Name"; "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac; Donald Fagen's "Nightfly"; U2's "Achtung Baby"; and "(What's the Story) Morning Glory" by the Oasis.
