Haha what!? Cmon, surely not. This might win the TF hipster award comment for 2021
Tbh he produced and remixed so much good stuff from 1997 to 1999, so many different melodic and uplifting tracks, that anything I've heard since just didn't measure up. Anything he's produced after that, I've thought I've heard it all before or not as good as before.

Certainly when he started producing stuff like Punk it was a complete turn off.

Loved his basslines here and there, but his melodies were just too sweet for my ears, like a music from a nectar or syrup.

I really liked Mind To Mind ‎- Music Is My Life, Eon - Pocket Damge, Vimana - We came, Starparty (FC&RB Remix), remixes for Cascade, Apoptygma, Push when they came out fresh on vinyl.. just can't listen to them anymore.. so my TOP 5 will be atypical:

1. Exiter - Eyes In The Sky
2. Skywalker - Intentions
3. Kinky Toys - Somewhere Outthere (Dissimilation Mix)
4. Albion - Air
5. whatever

never heard of it?
That was one of my first "classic trance" tracks, but it was also mislabeled as DJ Tiesto - Forbidden Paradise
Took me a couple of years to figure out that it was a Ferry track

Art of Trance - Madagascar (Ferry Corsten Remix)
System F - Out of The Blue
Ferry Corsten - Gabriella Sky
Ferry Corsten - Sublime

A 'hits only' top 5. I know, i know. Ido love the obvious ones, even after all these years. Special mention to Ferry Corsten - Holding On

These questions are very hard. I've pictured myself at Ferry Corten's farewell goodbye forever tour. Which tracks would I want Ferry to play?

Gouryella - Tenshi
Gouryella - Walhalla
William Orbit - Adagio For Strings (Ferry Corsten Mix)
Ferry Corsten - Indigo
Gouryella - Anahera

It's pretty much impossible to name only 5. I'd also love to mention Exhale, Beautiful, Made Of Love, Spaceman, Elevate... and I haven't even said Out Of The Blue yet. But I've heard that one plenty on festivals, so that why I won't have to put it in here. Hm, what about The Orange Theme (Ferry Mix), also a great one.

And, I also like the "electro" phase he had with Punk, Rock Your Body Rock, Right Of Way. A few great "later" ones... Embrace - Embrace, Brain Box, Twice In A Blue Moon.

Yeah he can fill an entire evening with great own productions.... Don't forget about Dance Valley Theme 2001, Ignition Sequence Start, oh fuck, Insolation (Ferry Corsten Remix) is also a great one. And I still haven't mentioned Ligaya or Gouryella.

Ferry has even more "big classics" than Tiesto to fill an entire evening.

I wanted to create this thread few months ago after the M.I.K.E thread but didn't have the time to think of all the tunes.

Ferry is my #2 favourite producer in terms of quantity + quality after M.I.K.E.

Top 5 is really hard to do but I'll try my best. I've tried not including the remixes of Ferry Corsten tracks, as that would make it much more longer to think xD

Of course I'll start with my honourable mentions. As usual, the more shivers I have from the track, the closer it is to the first place, and that's how I usually rate my trance.

Honourable mentions:

20. Ayumi Hamasaki - Kanariya (System F Mix)
19. Ferry Corsten - Shanti
18. Faithless feat. Boy George - Why Go (Ferry Corsten Remix)
17. System F - Ignition, Sequence, Start!
16. Ferry Corsten - Beautiful
15. Ayumi Hamasaki - Connected (Ferry Corsten Remix)
14. Gouryella - Ligaya (Original Instrumental Mix)
13. Desiderio - Starlight (Ferry Corsten Remix)
12. Corderoy - Sweetest Dreams (Ferry Corsten Remix)
11. Mash Up Matt - Liberation (Fly Like An Angel) (Ferry Corsten Remix)

And now the top 10 itself:

10. Vimana - Dreamtime
09. Albion - Air (Original Mix)
08. Lovechild - Liberta (Moonman Remix)
07. Anomaly - Calling Your Name (Ferry Corsten Remix)
06. Aven - All I Wanna Do (Ferry Corsten Remix)
05. Evoke - Arms Of Loren (Ferry Corsten Remix)
04. System F - Solstice (Original Extended)
03. Ferry Corsten vs. The Thrillseekers - Sublime
02. System F - Insolation (Ferry Corsten Flashover Remix)
01. Ferry Corsten - Gabriella's Sky

Hope you like my top 5 (20). There's honestly SO MANY tunes I could've put here as well.

For example, Late Summer Fields (Ferry Corsten Remix)... (I didn't include it as it's my ex-gf's fav trance track :LOL:)
Or Ferry's remixes of William Ørbit's "Barber's Adagio for Strings" + underrated "Ravel's Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte", which are amazing...
Or Synaesthesia (Ferry Corsten Remix) which I consider to be the best version of this track due to a very emotional start of the breakdown...
Or I'm In Love (Ferry Corsten & Robert Smit Remix)...
Or Midsummer Rain which was put as a free download years ago, a progressive gem....

But yes, I should stop now with his creations as there's just too many masterpieces.

Some of the tunes I really wanted to include but didn't do it, as they're remixes:
- Sweet Sorrow (Thrillseekers Remix);
- Soul On Soul (Barthezz Heavenly Remix);
- Interspace (C.M Club Remix);
- Galaxia (Aly & Fila Remix);
- Star Traveller (Hydroid vs. Zehavi & Rand Remix);
- Made Of Love (Science Deal For Angelica Instrumental Mix)

Saturday morning spent well.

After seeing Ferry Corsten last Friday I only realized I completely forgot about "Kyoto" in my post.

Such an amazing tune.

Ferry Corsten - Kyoto (Album Version)
