I agree on some of them though. So, well done, in fact.

(not in order)

B.A.D. II -- Rush
Pavement -- Silence Kit
The Mountain Goats -- Sinaloan Milk Snake Song
Alanis Morissette -- You Oughta Know
Sone -- High Frame Audio
Magnetic Fields -- 100,000 Fireflies
Spare Snare -- Thorns
Belle & Sebastian -- Judy and the Dream of Horses
Kleenex Girl Wonder -- Tendency Right Foot Forward
The Divine Comedy -- Bernice Bobs Her Hair

Just off:

The Breeders -- Do You Love Me Now?
The Dentists -- Charms and the Girl
The Sundays -- Here's Where the Story Ends

This is a weird-looking list, I think. Of the top 10, most are from records I love with such fervency that I'm not sure they're the best songs on their own album.

0 .Archers of Loaf - "Freezing Point" [from the Peel session]
As a lurker reading this thread I can't help weighing in at this point. I know you people have better taste than me in music but these lists seem sorely lacking.

1. Mazzy Star - "Into Dust"
2. Air - "Ce Matin La"
3. Orbital - "Belfast"
4, DJ Shadow - "Stem/Long Stem"
5. The Pixies - "Dig for Fire"
6. Aphex Twin - "Rhubarb" (from SAW II)
7. Goldie - "Inner City Life"
8. Black Star - "Respiration Remix" feat Black Thought
9. Nightmares on Wax - "Les Nuits"
10. Pavement - "Frontwards"

Wasn't there an epic ILM Best of the 90s poll at some point?

Doh. Where's my edit button?

11. Notorious BIG - "Juicy"

Sonic Youth is more of an album band, I think.

Charlie Howard, Monday, 21 September 2009 08:22 (seven years ago) Permalink

okay i did 2 of these, cos you can take the question 2 different ways..

most definitive... (this rarely changes for me)

Radiohead "Paranoid Android"
Stardust "Music Sounds Better With You"
Aphex Twin "Windowlicker"
Blur "Coffee + TV"
Christina Aguilera "Genie In A Bottle"
Pulp "Common People"
Beastie Boys "Sabotage"
Nirvana "Where Did You Sleep Last Night"
Dr. Dre "Nuthin But A G Thing"
Deee Lite "Groove Is In The Heart"

personal favorites... (this changes very often)

Nirvana "Scentless Apprentice"
Bel Biv Devoe "Poison"
A Tribe Called Quest "Electric Relaxation"
Souls Of Mischief "'93 Til Infinity"
Dr. Octagon "Blue Flowers"
The Notorious B.I.G. "Gimme The Loot"
The Posies "Dream All Day"

Bel Biv Devoe "Poison" - Yes.

A Tribe Called Quest "Electric Relaxation"

Ween "Baby Bitch" Jackpot!

I realize that I also neglected to mention Future Sound of London. I would really have to go with "Q" (as Mental Cube). Ah, screw it, "Papau New Guniea" is their best song but the other one's really good too.

― bau hau haus (electricsound)

I've never heard of this magnet magazine you speak of but in any case I think the real question you're trying to ask here is:

Since when did magnet magazine stopped caring about awesome music? And also at which point did I became such a jaded and pedantic person that feels the need to oppose idealisticaly the almost perfect homogeneity and righteousness of the hivemind.

all I can say is that that list is pretty plain

Oddly enough No Rain is the only song in that top 10 which I still don't hate.

We haven't mentioned Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy in here. Do we hate it?

The nineties are still weird for me. I frequently reacquaint myself with songs from then that I like, but at the same time I barely give a fuck.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 26 November 2014 07:44 (two years ago) Permalink

I always forget when records are from, especially when they are new (to me)

saer, Wednesday, 26 November 2014 07:48 (two years ago) Permalink

Mine would probably be 6 old skool hardcore/jungle tunes, 2 Carcass tunes and Don't Let Go by En Vogue.
