50 ballots! Countdown was supposed to start on Monday but I'll be working all Friday so I'm starting it right now. There were 10 ties in the top 100 so I'll be counting from 110 onwards to compensate.

Thanks to vahid for starting and organizing the first part of this poll and to everyone in here who sent in their ballots.

Shit... that's Thin White Duke remix not Carl Craig remix. Sorry about that.

I most probably won't say much on this thread and it will get stuck in my bookmarks as I slowly work my way through each youtube but thanks for doing this moka, i think this is going to be fun. also the graphics look aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamazing.

Thanks :)

The results are actually interesting for the most part. Even the top 10 has a couple of good surprises and it ended up being more unpredictable than I thought. I think you guys will be very pleased with the results in here.

Also some great discoveries to be made, like the next track which I've never heard before in my life but sounds amazing on my soundsystem:

Township Funk should have been way bigger than it was imho.

Moka, Sunday, 19 August 2012 22:24 (seven years ago) link

I have mad love for the next one. Didn't break the top 100 but got 8 votes so I'm happy I'm not alone on it:

Moka, Sunday, 19 August 2012 22:25 (seven years ago) link

Moka raised the bar on poll images. When the EOY poll rolls around, I'm actually gonna have to put some effort into this shit! Wah.

second only to popcorn (or something), Sunday, 19 August 2012 22:44 (seven years ago) link

hey moka you couldn't put the year of the song release in there too please? i know it may be bothersome, especially with a genre that is all about shady white labels 3 years before things get popular etc. so feel free to ignore this but i'd just like to see when things were made. or maybe when the overall list is posted stick the year next to it then.

Awesome pics Moka.

Sure thing a hoy hoy. Per your request I'll start adding year of release for the top 100.

Thanks Tim!

Alright so those 10 were the bonus for the 10 tie-ins ahead. Great songs all around. Will give you a couple of minutes to digest those. Actual top 100 coming on up.

well it turns out i also voted for 'vacuum boogie' and 'present lover'

some thoughts so thoughtless

Lamp, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:33 (seven years ago) link

Oh shit forgot to add the years. Green Velvet is 2001 and M83 2005.

Moka, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:36 (seven years ago) link

I was sure a single first place vote would guarantee a spot here - I guess if the present lover got 1 1st place and two other votes on top of that there's tougher competition than I thought.

formerly EDB (ed.b), Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:36 (seven years ago) link

Expected this one to fare much better considering it did good on the best 2011 tracks poll.

Moka, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:36 (seven years ago) link

i didn't vote but i'm psyched. looks great Moka. there are already tracks i LOVE mainly TPL and Cable Dazed.

jed_, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:37 (seven years ago) link

1st place vote means 50 points. According to my table there's 7 nominees fighting for a tie at 50 points. They're fighting for the 356th place!

Moka, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:38 (seven years ago) link

7 number one votes that got no other votes? love ILM sometimes.

jed_, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:41 (seven years ago) link

I think Getting Me Down was low down on my ballot but not 100%. Good tune anyway, I may have heard it a few too many times by now but can't really hold that against it.

Moka, Sunday, 19 August 2012 23:48 (seven years ago) link

Agreed that "I Need You" is outstanding. "Itgehane" is also quite pleasing to the ear.

The more recent hit I'd put on a "Inspector Norse" tier is "What's a Girl To Do". Although a reissue it was highly rated.

viborg, Monday, 8 April 2019 09:43 (five months ago) link

I really hate "What's A Girl To Do", that synth melody is so cheap and crude and ruins any atmosphere it has

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 06:39 (five months ago) link

Akanamali would do very well on here

Frederik B, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 07:24 (five months ago) link

There's such a big difference between these 90s and 00s polls - both obviously full of great tracks but the energy level in the 00s was way lower.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 09:03 (five months ago) link

"what's a girl to do" would be nothing without the frisson created by the rub of the garish funky scribble of the lead against the delicate atmosphere laid underneath. it's one of those things where the hook is so iconic and attention-grabbing that it has to phase in and out of taste as time passes, it's not subtle enough to fit in everywhere, but that's the case with most tracks that become anthems

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 9 April 2019 15:28 (five months ago) link

that's a great, otm post

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 16:11 (five months ago) link

but the synth lead was always honking, at least the DJ Haus edit treated it with the bad taste it deserved

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 16:14 (five months ago) link

boxedjoy v wrong. Defo time for a decade poll, come on er, someone

or something, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 16:55 (five months ago) link

'what's a girl to do' was released in 2004.

2 Markov Chainz (haitch), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 00:23 (five months ago) link

I think it only really became famous when it was re-released in 2015 though, followed by the DJ Haus edit

Dan S, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 00:32 (five months ago) link

the resident advisor retrospective thing has made me remember how cool some of the trackier techno of the time was, e.g. dj minx’s “a walk in the park”

kind of sad there’s not much of that on the list!

mh, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 01:06 (five months ago) link

really like "A Walk in the Park"

If there was a poll of ILX polls, this would be #1

josh az (2011nostalgia), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 03:44 (five months ago) link

e.g. dj minx’s “a walk in the park”

Butterflight is the one from there!

kind of sad there’s not much of that on the list!

Bobbins past (and present!) does though!

saer, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 04:16 (five months ago) link

I really enjoyed the final results and hosting this rollout. Overall a very nice poll to have worked on, glad you’re still pleased with it!

I’m up for an update some time in the future. Maybe a 10 year anniversary in 2022 :P See which tracks stood the passing of a decade and which ones are deemed the new classics by ILM.

I assume results would be quite different since many posters from the time have disappeared and there’s many newcomers and lurkers. We’d probably get more ballots in these time.

Also who knows what could happen in three years. If I’m not around anymore but the forum is still standing please carry on with the 10 year anniversary update either way.

I remember falling in love with the Toyboy & Robin "Jaded" video during the 2013 tracks rollout. it still gives me so much pleasure to watch it

Dan S, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 06:11 (five months ago) link

These lists change a lot over the years, I recently ran into this "all time top 500 dance tracks" from 2003 (some listeners poll by a German? UK? radio station I believe), and while these are all pretty much canonical classics, no doubt such a list would look completely different now.

Popular as trance was here there's no way that's a British list.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 08:34 (five months ago) link

Yeah my guess would be Germany as well

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 08:37 (five months ago) link

It's a nice shapshot from just before the whole minimal aesthetic took over.

Siegbran, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 08:42 (five months ago) link

(and electro)

Siegbran, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 08:44 (five months ago) link

16 Here's Johnny Deepack 06:52

With a hardcore track that high, has to be Dutch actually.

Siegbran, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 08:47 (five months ago) link

Not enough Dido or Dave Gahan in that list. And where the hell are Grand Funk Railriad ffs.

nashwan, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 09:09 (five months ago) link

gui boratto, 'a beautiful life', just hit the playlist.
shivers all over.
still does its magic.

mark e, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 09:09 (five months ago) link

It's a nice shapshot from just before the whole minimal aesthetic took over.

It's also a nice snapshot from just before pressed pills gave way to pure powder.

lukas, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 11:52 (five months ago) link

o_0 at that list of 500

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 15:16 (five months ago) link

Lotta good stuff in there obv, but doesn't excuse the majority of ... that top 10.

zama roma ding dong (Eric H.), Wednesday, 10 April 2019 15:17 (five months ago) link

any time I see lists like that I think back to this good oral history of Berlin techno book (Der Klang der Familie -- has an English translation, would recommend) and at the point where trance-like things are starting to happen all the late 80s guys seem disgusted

mh, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 16:12 (five months ago) link

With the exception of the occasional Tiga or Roger Sanchez or later Basement Jaxx track that list feels way more 1999 than 2003, I'd have expected more golden age Paris house in there by 2003 for one thing.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 16:21 (five months ago) link

It is just the contents of an external hard drive of 192kbps m4a files dl'd from BitTorrent that PewDePie gave away to a first responder.

nashwan, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 16:24 (five months ago) link

list is good ... for me to poop on

the late great, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 17:14 (five months ago) link

honestly though i can’t imagine a scenario wherein a ranked list of 500 things is not a total waste of space

the late great, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 17:16 (five months ago) link

Skipping through it a bit more, that list of 500 is of course way too full of then-current trance hits that have really not endured but if you strip out the 2002-2003 material it’s pretty solid list of mainly house classics.

Siegbran, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 18:05 (five months ago) link

Was just this morning looking forward to the results of a 2010-2019 electronic dance tracks poll.

big same. i got the bug to start compiling mine last november and have been tinkering with it ever since. already >100 tracks and still have most of 2019 to go...

I agree with much of it but safe generally seems to be the direction that top rated dance music is headed these days, which I guess is why I brought up "What's A Girl To Do"

With due respect I'll just be really glad if we can forget all about that awful top 500 trance list that we felt the need to post in its entirety.

yes in regards to forgetting about trance (at least for the moment)

I like a lot of Thee Macallan 18 Year's list

Only about a quarter of those 500 are trance to be fair, but yeah it’s a real time capsule.

I love “look right through” but if I had to choose between that and “reckless with your love” it’s the latter.

"Reckless" is 09 ~!

Which I guess raises the question why you're looking for "look right through" on this thread?
