#Top100 Songs Part Two: 90-81

There’s been a really cool response to the first part of this rundown, including a lovely tweet from one of the artists listed (thank you Joe Driscoll!), so here are my choices from 90 to 81. For Part One and more details, see here.

90) ST ETIENNE – He’s On The Phone:

Classy, bouncy 90’s girl-fronted indie pop. Almost defines the word ‘earworm’…

89) DESMOND DEKKER AND THE ACES – 007 (Shanty Town):

A soundsystem playlist classic. Guaranteed to get folk dancing – even in the middle of Parliament Square!

88) THE OFFSPRING – Self Esteem:

Instant teenage attitude problem – just add this song.

87) THIN LIZZY – Jailbreak:

Just rocks like a bastard.

86) LOVE – A House Is Not A Motel:

The dark side of the West Coast acid dream. Who would have thought a bad trip could sound so good?

85) COUNTING CROWS – Rain King:

Sad, uplifting and comforting all at the same time.

84) BLONDIE – Union City Blue:

Not necessarily an obvious choice, but a great song nonetheless!

83) MC XANDER – Sick Of The Lies:

Fierce, political and highly creative – this tune is made using only voice and beatbox.


Another lost classic – this one doesn’t get anywhere near the airplay it deserves.

81) PANTERA – Cowboys From Hell:

“We’re taking over this town…” Oh yes. Patented Dimebag (RIP) guitar crunch on this one.

Watch out for 80-71 coming soon…
