If you’re on Twitter, by the way, you can follow the conversation at the hashtag #Top100. Here’s tonight’s ten tracks, and if you want to catch up with my previous selections, you can find them all here, here and here.
70) TORI AMOS – Silent All These Years:
A gorgeous song from a gorgeous, inspiring woman with a stunning voice.
69) DEATH IN VEGAS – Rocco (Dave Clarke Remix):
A classic remix of a great song from DiV’s underrated debut album, Dead Elvis.
68) ELECTRONIC – Getting Away With It:
Bernard Sumner. Johnny Marr. Neil Tennant. I mean, what more could you want? Classic, classy electro-pop.
67) SIOUXIE AND THE BANSHEES – Spellbound:
Punk’s greatest goddess with an exciting, exhilarating rush of a tune.
66) PJ HARVEY – Sheela-Na-Gig:
One of my teenage heroines – this is Polly Jean at her rawest and most uncompromising. Love it.
65) ERIC B AND RAKIM – Paid In Full (Coldcut Remix):
A stone cold, bona fide hip hop classic. This Coldcut remix just takes the original to another level.
64) CURTIS MAYFIELD – Move On Up:
If this don’t make you grin like a loon, you’re probably dead. Uncompromising, ridiculously musically tight and as funky as fuck.
63) ELECTRIBE 101 feat. BILLIE RAY MARTIN – Talking With Myself:
A lost Balearic classic from the late 80’s, with a stunning vocal from the ultimate house diva herself, Billie Ray Martin.
62) CROSBY, STILLS, NASH AND YOUNG – Ohio:
Written in response to the Kent State University massacre of 1970, this is one of the greatest protest songs of that era.
61) THE SOURCE feat. CANDI STATON – You Got The Love:
Released countless times in the UK, this all-time classic house tune has charted on every occasion. And it’s obvious why…
