Nearly put “Da Art of Storytellin’ Pt 1” in there aswell but yeah, might have been Outkast overkill. And obviously that should read Millionaire for Kelis rather than Gone!
that album makes me beyond sad I just can’t listen to it anymore sadly but it is amazing.
Really glad to see The Battle of Hampton Roads show up, I wanted to put it on mine. Patrick Stickles is a genius.
Can’t believe I missed it off mine. Singing it live might have been one of my best experiences. “Tonight when we drink we will drink to excess…”
Impossible really - I’d struggle to name my favourite top ten songs by my most-listened to artists - never mind top ten overall!
New Order. Regret.
Pet Shop Boys. Rent.
Depeche Mode. Halo.
The Smiths. There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.
Golden Boy with Miss Kittin. Rippin Kittin.
The Cardigans. Erase/Rewind.
Desireless. Voyage Voyage.
Mystery Jets. Someone Purer.
David Bowie. Everyone Says Hi.
School Of Seven Bells. Faded Heart.
Rent, great shout. It was in my top five pet shop boys tracks as I was trying to whittle them down for this, opted for being boring
