So we’ve done singles, and we’re all perfectly happy and in agreement that ‘Hey Ya’ is the best song released this decade? Aren’t we now? Aren’t we? Good. Now for the even more exciting count down! In my head anyway. For in a decade where downloads and torrents and online radio stations such as Last FM, Pandora and Spotify devalued the art of collecting a few songs together, and making them mean something as a whole, we’ve had more than our share of classic records. Honest.

And never have we had such a varied, diverse bunch to pick from, due mainly to the internet and its ability to make music from all over the world as easy to access as clicking on a few buttons and ignoring porn for 15 minutes. Magic! Though this particular list has a wee bit of a focus on North American alt-rock, but that’s just me. And it is my list. So make your own if you don’t agree. Or do something worthwhile. Like start a family or storm a KFC.


SPOTIFY INNIT?!?!?

And so we conclude. With ten songs in impeccable brilliance. No, really. This was worth it, wasn’t it? Yes? Good. Albums next.

The tease before the top ten. These are all pretty ace though. And sadly keep N-Dubz and Chipmunk from the top 150. Tears.

Okay, maybe I am mentally ill.

We’re getting so close to the top now. Who’s excited? Come on, someone must be? Rebecca Ritters? Okay then, go back to your pudding. I’ll carry on though.

AND HERE IS THE SPOTIFY PLAYLIST!!!

I'm still not mentally ill. I just like the way this looks now.

Like Bill O’Reilly’s heart, this list just keeps on going, regardless of how many people want it to stop. It won’t. Never. Or until I get to the number one. Whatever comes first. Probably the latter. It makes a lot more sense.

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST OF TOP 150 SO FAR.

I am still not mentally ill. Photoshop isn't working.

I am still not mentally ill. Photoshop isn't working.

And so we carry on counting down the very best song efforts this decade (and indeed millennium) has thrown up so far. Not literally thrown up. That would be horrible. You’d have Brandon Flowers covered in day old carrot and soup. Do we want that? Some of us certainly, but not the moral majority. Oh, they do too. Okay then, vomit away.

ON WE GO! And remember the SPOTIFY PLAYLIST. (more…)

Top 150 songs of the decade: 150 – 101

I am not mentally ill. I am just tired.

I am not mentally ill. I am just tired.

I’m either early with this, if you’re a sane human being who follows natural chronology, or I’m late if you’re Pitchfork, Pop Tarts Suck Toasted or Pretty Much Amazing, all of whom have perfectly fair and decent orderings of art. Even if R Kelly seems to feature prominently on all of them. This I won’t abide. Thus you won’t find him anywhere near this particular narcissus, nor indeed Missy Elliot who still terrifies my eyes out. Other than that, it’s yet another jolly old round up of the best pop, rock, indie, country, hip-hop, punk and what not about. And yes, I do know McFly are in there.

I should also point out that though I set out with all good intentions of making this a ‘singles’ only thing (as in records, rather than just have very lonely artists) I got lost along the way and just made it ‘songs’, cos we really don’t think ‘War on War‘ is the best song on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot do we? We don’t? Good. Now on with the first batch. And why not have a wee sentence beside each one, giving my opinion on it? And a link to a video so you can form one too? Magic!

Here’s the Spotify playlist too for such handy conveniences. Tops! (more…)
