And, finally for today, here’s last night’s #Top100 selections. Feel free to carry on letting me know what you think – I’m glad to see I’m not the only one out there with incredibly random taste in music! As ever, you can find all my previous #Top100 choices in one place by clicking here. We’re getting ever closer to the top twenty now…
30) BOB DYLAN – Hurricane:
A brilliant, classic example of the narrative song in the hands of a modern master of storytelling.
29) FAITH NO MORE – The Cowboy Song:
Not an obvious choice, I know, but there’s something about it…
28) THE WHO – I’m One:
Not an obvious choice either – but a great track from a great album. Proof that The Who were more than just shouty sweary Mods.
27) FLOWERED UP – Weekender:
Completely bonkers, but in a very, very good way. An E-and-acid-fuelled lost classic from London’s only Baggy band.
26) FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON – Papua New Guinea:
Elegant, complex and intelligent music that clearly believes electronica should have a heart and a soul. Utterly unique.
25) UNDERWORLD – Dark and Long (Dark Train):
The original is great: classic cheeky and eccentric Underworld – but this intense, driving, trancy mix somehow manages to top it…
24) NINE INCH NAILS – The Perfect Drug (Remixed by Luke Vibert):
An absolute killer of a remix of what originally was, to be honest, a fairly so-so song (and I’m a NIN fan). Hold on to your hats, folks…
23) JEFF BUCKLEY – Hallelujah/I Know It’s Over (Medley):
This is about as close to perfection as you’re ever going to get.
22) DEPECHE MODE – World In My Eyes:
From Essex synth-pop and bad haircuts to this – in only a few short years…
21) THE KINKS – Lola:
A deliciously ambiguous and very British 60’s pop classic without equal. Ray Davies is a genius. Fact.
Stay tuned for 20-11 coming later!
