Your ten absolute favourite songs of all-time?


Definitely. Have you heard this acoustic version of ‘Hold On…’?

That voice, man…


Some great Molina sets on Well worth checking out


Wicked. Thanks.


for sure

and, bizarrely, still sounds like future space sex


Captain Badass!


‘future space sex’ is my favourite genre.


biggest tragic loss to music in a decade.


Aretha franklin- one step ahead
gang of four- damaged goods
grace jones- pull up to the bumper
universal robot band- barely breaking even
gil scott heron- b movie
outkast- ms jackson
erykah badu- I want you
ghostface killah- whip you with a strap
super furry animals- frequency
john grant- gmf


oh fuck

I forgot Grace’s Nipple to the Bottle in my list, I mean I didn’t forget the song I mean it was one of the songs in my head I forgot to type out


With the usual I’ll change my mind in a minute blah blah blah caveat:

Red House Painters - Grace Cathedral Park
Neil Young - Cortez the Killer
Songs:Ohia - Farewell Transmission
Mark Lanegan - Carnival
Blind Melon - No Rain
Nick Drake - Northern Sky
Jesu - Silver
The Replacements - I Will Dare
The National - All the Wine
QOTSA - Avon


might swap mine for Heatwave on second thoughts


Lots of love for Blind Melon here! That’s even more pleasing than the love for Eels - which really shouldn’t have come as a surprise.


Arcade Fire- Tunnels
Jackie Wilson- Higher
Eels- Hey Man, Now You’re Really Living
Ben E. King- Stand My Be
Broken Social Scene- Anthems For A 17 Year Old Girl
Joanna Newsom- Sawdust And Diamonds
Dan Deacon- Snookered
David Bowie- Ashes To Ashes
LCD Soundsystem- All My Friends
Titus Andronicus- The Battle of Hampton Roads


This list I like.


Wichita Lineman is also on my top ten, for sure. Great choice!


did not expect to see the Doobie Bros. and The Cars up in here


Right. Rolling up sleeves. Usual caveat apply…

Songs: Ohia - John Henry Split My Heart*
Joanna Newsom - Only Skin
Circle Takes the Square - Interview at the Ruins
Sufjan Stevens - Impossible Soul**
Converge - Jane Doe
Slint - Good Morning Captain
Mogwai - Mogwai Fear Satan
Of Montreal - The Past is a Grotesque Animal
Father John Misty - Holy S**t
65DOS - Conspiracy of Seeds

*Just going to buck the ‘Farewell Transmisson’ trend here, although as it includes the ‘Long Dark Blues’ refrain the two songs are basically companion pieces

**Is this the most popular choice overall? Has anyone done a tally?


Alright. Quite Outkast-centric…

Outkast - Spottieottiedopaliscious
UGK & Outkast - Intl’ Players Anthem
The National - About Today
Kurt Vile - Runner Ups
Japandroids - The House That Heaven Built
D’Angelo - Feel Like Makin’ Love
Kanye West - Gone
Kelis ft. Andre 3000 - Gone
Frank Ocean - Swim Good
Bruce Springsteen - I’m On Fire

There are so many songs I had to leave off. This will probably change next week but I think the top 3 will always be there.


For various reasons Really Love is neck and neck with anything on Voodoo for me now. But I can’t argue with Feel Like Makin’ Love.

Also I only put one of Spottie and Players Anthem purely to spice things up, but obvs they’re both up there. Also maybe my favourite Kanye joint. :grin:


Choosing one D’Angelo was tough. I love almost everything on Voodoo and Black Messiah. Also rarely listen to individual tracks from both, it’s usually the whole album. Feel Like Makin Love is such a jam though.

I could have had about 50 Kanye tracks too, but have always had a soft spot for Late Registration, and Cam’ron, Consequence and Kanye all smash it. That final Ye verse might be his best ever.
