The fact Dido is more popular than Beth Orton is one of the reasons why the world sucks today. This is a fairly traditional reading of the old Ronnie Spector classic, just Orton on voice and guitar; it's absolutely heartbreaking. If you're familiar with the original, check this out; if you're not, then you'll find yourself listening to one of the saddest songs ever.
Whoa. This song is a heartbreak.

From the very underrated Get Ready album. There's very little dance here; it's a plain rock monster. Sumner's lyrics are rubbish as usual but at least he sounds like he's having fun. I am too.

27. Elliott Smith - 'Waltz#2 (XO)'
I can't write enough good things about this song. It's got brilliant lyrics but also some amazing production/instrumentation. It's very sad that he's gone now.

i LOVE that new order song. have you seen the video? hilarious...

and i'm pretty sure that elliott smith song will make my list, though it's a toss-up between that and 'twilight'.

i have a feeling my list will be closer to fifty.

the only problem with my list is that i've got too many blur, broken social scene, and wilco songs on it. need more diversity! will hopefully post it later, minus the links for the time being.

Alright, here's the list of my FAVOURITE songs. Will hopefully be available for download in the not-so-distant future. Thoughts?

--------------------------------------


50. Blur - Tender

If this is only number 50, obviously this is a great list.

49. Zero 7 - In Time

Great retrospective song.

48. The Verve - History

Only problem with this song is that it goes on for a spell too long. The first three minutes are prime though.

47. REM - E-Bow The Letter

Tastes like fear...and delicious.

46. Beck - Nobody's Fault But My Own

Gotta love Beck when he's feeling terrible.

45. Madonna - Ray Of Light

1998, anyone?

44. Radiohead - How To Disappear Completely

Desolate...the best thing to ever happen videowise was the blip this song has. The one with the snow, anyone? Nod your head and say yes.

43. Sparklehorse - It's a wonderful life

I don't feel like commenting on every song. Download it for yourself and see why I'm right about this, and everything else.

42. Stars - Elevator Love Letter

My office glows...all night long, it's a nuclear show and the stars are gone.

41. Primative Radio Gods - Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

Sentamental selection, no other reason really.

40. Explosions In The Sky - Greet Death

This song is great right after the heavy part towards the beginning of the piece.

39. Caribou - Yeti

Disko! Rawk.

38. Blur - This Is A Low

Of course.

37. Wilco - Wishful Thinking

Tremendous lyrics make this song come to life...the absolute quietness of this song during the verses are beautiful.

36. Arcade Fire - Rebellion

Easy song to point out as being one of the best of the last two years.

35. Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlanticsm

Great buildup, got into this song finally right after I came back from Europe in spring, oddly enough. Would have been nice to have liked it WHILE in europe, but whatever. WHATEVER!!!

34. Future Sound of London - Papua New Guinea

It's a lot like U2's lemon, i think...

33. Sigur Ros - Olsen Olsen

I see lots of balloons and happy kids having good times. This song needs to be in a happy go lucky Disney movie.

32. The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

Classic.

31. James - Laid

Classic.

30. Bach - Pastoral Symphony

TRULY classicAL.

29. Joshua Treble - I Was There For The Last Kiss But Never Saw The Ambulance

Glitch at it's best, as far as I'm concerned. Very easy to listen to.

28. Supergrass - St. Petersburg

Thanks to Kieran, I haven't stopped listening to this song since I first downloaded it only a few months ago.

27. Beck - High Five

Here we have Beck at his obnoxious best. DEATH TO THE LINE!!!!!

26. Pink Floyd - Jugband Blues

And the sea...isn't greeeeeeeeen...and IIIIIIIiiii...love the queeeen...and what exactlyyy iiis a dreaaaaam...and what exactlyyyyy iiiis a 7OKE. c + a minor, repeat...

25. Broken Social Scene - Ibi Dreams Of Pavement (A Better Tommorow)

best second half of a song since olsen olsen.

24. Broken Social Scene - Stars and Sons

great bass line, great atmosphere. Got me into Broken Social Scene after seeing the video on MTV 2, two years ago. Great video...

23. Smashing Pumpkins - Perfect

1998 again. Everyone has a turning point year, so lots of songs on this list happen to be from that point in time.

22. REM - I Wanted To Be Wrong

Anyone who slags REM's current output hasn't heard this song.

21. Stars - Ageless Beauty

Another great video...full on rock shit. Really optimistic too, good vibe.

20. Psilonaut - Ghost In The Machine

Music is Math, and this song is proof. Everything is very calculated like lots of music in this genre. From the Requiem for a dream movie...

19. Sandro Perri - Dreaming (is real)

One of the most intense songs ever. I demand everyone listen to it, everyone who has at other message boards loves it. Thanks to me.

18. Low - When I Go Deaf

Another new song, relatively speaking. This husband-wife duo here are at their best on their latest offering. This song you really need to hear.

17. The Beatles - Across The Universe

7ust how many covers of this song has their been? For good reason too, Rufus does a great cover.

16. Debussy - Clare de Lune

the REAL motion picture soundtrack...the song life is meant to end with. or a movie, depending if you're a nihilist or not. *cough*

15. The Walkmen - My Old Man

HERE WE ARE, DRIVING IN MY FATHER'S CAR. BREAK IT OFF WITH HIM. BREAK IT OFF WITH HIM. this song actually happened, so to speak, over the holidays. i could have written it myself, in a sense.

14. Duo 505 - Disko + Bett

alright, here's where it gets cool. EVERYONE DOWNLOAD THIS SONG. alter your sound options to make it as intense as possible. this song kicks ass, and i doubt anyone of you here has heard it. i have cbc radio three to thank for it.

13. Wilco - Less Than You Think

lots of hate for this song, but it's one of my very favourites. very simple melody, but it strikes home. the noise at the end is also lovely...i like songs that destruct themselves.

12. Blur - Out Of Time

Melancholy, anyone? Post - Graham, not a lot of hope for Blur, but this song is one of the best they've ever done.

11. The Verve - The Drugs Don't Work

if heaven calls, i'm coming too...

10. Broken Social Scene - Feel Good Lost

Odd choice, I admit. But I've listened to this song more than any other in the last two years. When you download it, you'll probably wonder why. I have no idea either, but it's so RIGHT.

9. K.C. Accidental - Residential Love Song

Modern "rock: instrumentals don't get any better than this.

8. Blur - The Universal

It really, really, really could happen to be Blur's greatest song ever.

7. Manitoba - I've Lived On A Dirt Road All My Life

It's true. I have. And you put this on your mp3 player and go for a walk down where I live, and you'd have it in your top ten too.

6. Stars - Heart

The connection these two singers have is brilliant. The man begging for the woman in the verses, and the woman relenting in the chorus with "alright, i'll say what you want me to. i can do all the things you do. alright, i'll make it all up for you - i'm still in love with you. i'm still in love with you."

5. Loscil - The Grid

WOW. another cbc radio 3 moment in the middle of the night. i heard this song right before they played the sandro perri tune...both of which can be found on the 'Saturday Morning Empires' cd of great Canadian electronic/idm-ish music. Please download this song...

4. Beethoven - Pathetique

The first note was all it took. Amazing. Right from that first stroke of brilliance, this song goes on to be my favourite classical pieces of all time. Predictable? Of course, but there's a reason why it's so popular.

3. Broken Social Scene - Lover's Spit (w/Feist)

Either version is great, but I have a soft spot for female singers like Leslie Feist. And on top of that, the ambience at the end of this song make this one of my favourite songs of all time.

2. Wilco - Reservations

Great lyrics, as per usual from Tweedy. But it's the ending that makes the song for me. I made a thread about this song not too long ago...

1. Radiohead - Airbag

The greatest song of all time, in my opinion. Especially live...oddly enough, Radiohead played this song better in 1997 and 98 than they do these days. They even admit it, which is why they rarely play it anymore. Everything I've ever liked about how 7onny plays guitar, he showcases in this song. From raunchy over-the-top guitar, to solo's, to flat out sexing the guitar sideways. The best there ever was, and will ever be.

The greatest guitarist in rock history, and not a bad singer either. Awesome, awesome stuff.
Yes! I don't know a lot of his stuff, but this came out when I was in college, and I love it.

Quote:
15. The Roots feat. Cody Chestnutt- 'Seed 2.0'
One of my favourite songs of the past few years. It's really impossible not to dance to.
Yes!! I loved this song so much, and have been disappointed by everything else I ever sought out by The Roots. Oh well. This song is great enough to be enough for me.

Quote:
25. The Cardigans - 'You're The Storm'
Most of the best bands in the world are Swedish. This one was a single from the Cardigans album before the current one, and it's got a killer chorus.
YES!!! This is an amazing song. I love the whole album, but this one's by far the best track.

The one's I know, I like.

Look forward to hearing the rest.

And yes, having Tender at 50 is a good sign. I like that tune.

E-Bow the Letter: I love that they picked this one as the first single from the severely underrated "New Adventures in Hi-Fi." It's out of left field, is strange and gorgeous, slightly eerie.

Transatlanticism: I've decided I don't much like Death Cab For Cutie (although I dig the Postal Service - go figure), but this is a great song. I kept the album of the same name for this song alone.

Claire de Lune: My favorite piece ever to play on the piano, but I also love the orchestral version. The last 30 seconds or so are absolutely luminous.

And as for being used as an ending to a movie, I'm convinced that this being used as the characters watch the Bellaggio fountains at the end of "Ocean's 11" is what makes me keep thinking it's a better movie than it really is. I just love that scene, all thanks to the music.

These are on my list (I'm up to 20) as well.

I didn't think of this one on my own but I put it on lots of mixes for people so it's definitely a fav.

Excellent list!

In alphabetical order, only because that’s the way my CDs are organized. A few miscellaneous ones at the end, to bring it up to 35. Yeah, 35. I cheated.

I don’t have any of these uploaded right now, but email me if you’d like any of them, and I’ll upload them by request. Alicia.k@comcast.net

1. Ryan Adams – “Wonderwall”

Of all the Ryan Adams tracks I could have picked, why a cover? It’s the track I listen to the most. He took an already lovely song and turned it into something haunting and ethereal. The first time I heard this, I was driving, and was so in love with it I almost had to pull over and give it my full attention. Luckily for me (and the other drivers on the road that night), I’m a good multi-tasker.

2. Tori Amos – “Real Men”

I waffled on this one, wanting to either choose this track or her completely creepy cover of Eminem’s “ ’97 Bonnie and Clyde.” I used to be a big Tori fan, but her last few albums have done absolutely nothing for me. I’d never heard Joe Jackson’s original version of this song, but after falling in love with Tori’s cover, I sought it out and was surprised at how different the two versions were. With all due respect to Mr. Jackson, I like Tori’s version better.

3. Angie Aparo – “Spaceship”

I don’t know anything about this guy, except that he’s from Memphis and should put out another album. This song showed up on a mix CD I got some years ago. I liked the song, but didn’t think to search out an album by him. When I finally got around to doing so, I kicked myself for not doing it sooner. Great voice, great melody, great song. He had a second album of cover songs that was pretty hit or miss, but I’d love to hear him put something else out.

4. Annie – “Heartbeat”

If you’ve paid attention to my posts over the past year, you may have noticed that I have a penchant for Big, Dumb Pop Songs. I love ‘em. Give me a catchy, well-done pop song, and I will love it. You’ve just gotta love a well-crafted pop song (Abba, anyone?). I read a lot about Annie this year and picked up her album “Anniemal” on the strength of this song and “Chewing Gum,” both little flashes of pop brilliance.

5. Badfinger – “No Matter What”

I also dig power pop, of which this is a tasty specimen.

6. Billy Bragg & Wilco – “California Stars”

Lyrics by Woody Guthrie, from the very good album by the same name. The second volume isn’t nearly as good, but oh well. This song is very repetitive, but I just love it. It reminds me of driving into Northern California two years ago, and being completely in awe of the redwood trees.

7. Mary Chapin Carpenter – “I Am a Town”

I just really like her. Great song-writer, definite country flavor, but fear not. More of a good American singer-songwriter of a country/folk bent, rather than a generic, soulless “new country” piece of crap. This song is simple and melancholy, and paints a picture of a forgotten southern American back-road town. I’ve never been to the south that she sings about, but I can picture it in this song, and it sounds beautiful.

8. Neko Case – “Deep Red Bells”

I’m not a huge New Pornographers fan (great tunes, but they just sound too noisy to me, like they’re all crowded around one microphone in the studio, playing too loud all at once), but I love Neko Case’s voice. Her solo albums are really good; this one’s from “Blacklisted,” which I highly recommend.

9. Chicago – “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day”

Ah, Chicago. Before they went all crap. Peter Cetera takes the lead on this one, even though Terry Kath was still alive at this point. This song just makes me feel good. I can’t sing along to it without smiling. “Ohhhh yeahhhhh” indeed, Peter.

10. Crowded House – “Distant Sun”

Hard to pick just one Crowded House/Neil Finn song, but this one’s my favorite. Lovely.

11. The Flaming Lips – “Do You Realize?”

On the whole, The Flaming Lips are a little too out there for my tastes, but I just find them really interesting. “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” is a really great album, and I picked up “The Soft Bulletin” later and was surprised at how much I liked it. Then I watched their “Fearless Freaks” documentary, and now have kind of a crush on Wayne Coyne, fake blood and all. This song is kind of an obvious choice, but hey – I’m kind of a simple girl. It’s just an amazing song.

12. Emmylou Harris – “Wrecking Ball”

How great is Emmylou Harris? I never really gave her much thought, just lumping her into the “country” category, but when I was working at a mall record store in the mid 90s, her Daniel Lanois-produced “Wrecking Ball” album came out, and I took home the promo copy we’d received for in-store play. I loved it immediately and now think she’s just the bee’s knees. Love her voice. The album is almost all covers, including this one, which is a Neil Young song. Mr. Young sings backing vocals as well.

13. The Jayhawks – “Blue”

My love of countryish singer-songwriters was followed by a love of alt-country stuff, including the Jayhawks. Good songs, great harmonies, what more could you want?

14. Keane – “Bend and Break”

Some people declare them too wussy or what-have-you, but I think this is an amazing album. The guy’s voice is just perfection, and it soars on this track. I was so glad I got to see them open for U2 in New York last fall, and was very pleased to hear his voice was just as good live as it was on the record.

15. kd lang – “Hallelujah”

kd lang has become one of my favorite singers. Her voice is warm, and rich, and lush, and just flawless. Her latest release, “Hymns of the 49th Parallel,” is all covers of songs by Canadian songwriters (Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Jane Siberry), and it’s gorgeous. I was torn between using the ubiquitous “Hallelujah” or Neil Young’s “Helpless,” but I went with this one.

16. Cyndi Lauper – “I Drove All Night”

Laugh if you will, but Cyndi has an incredible voice. If I ever come across a karaoke bar that has this song in the book, I can die a happy woman (after butchering the song and then beating myself up about it, of course). I threw a fit of righteous indignation when I first heard the Celine Dion travesty of a version in that car commercial a few years ago.

17. M.I.A. – “10 Dollar”

I bought into the hype on this one. I never thought this sort of thing would be up my alley, but I completely love her “Arular” album. This is my favorite track on the album, a chipper little ditty about child prostitution.

18. Kylie Minogue – “Red Blooded Woman”

Laugh if you will, but Kylie Minogue is pocket-sized brilliance, and this song is all kinds of awesome.

19. Morphine – “Cure For Pain”

I’m very sorry Mark Sandman passed away, because that means no more Morphine albums. A saxophone instead of a lead guitar? What’s not to love! The whole “Cure For Pain” album is very, very good. Sometimes menacing, often sexy, sometimes surprisingly gentle, often fun, always great!

20. Sinead O’Connor – “No Man’s Woman”
I haven’t been into what Sinead’s been doing for years now, but I love this song. Without resorting to the tired old “girl power” cliché, this song kicks all kinds of ass and is perfect for cranking on a road trip where you can sing as loud as you damn well please.

21. Joan Osborne – “Righteous Love”

If all you’ve heard of Joan Osborne is “One of Us,” you don’t know Joan Osborne. This woman can SING. Her “Righteous Love” album was sorely overlooked, and is really great.

22. The Pernice Brothers – “The Weakest Shade of Blue”

Perfectly intelligent pop with wonderful harmonies. I love Joe Pernice’s voice.

23. The Posies – “Flavor of the Month”

Power pop from the Pacific Northwest with the tinge of the dreaded grunge sound. Their album “Frosting on the Beater” is very, very good.

24. REM – “Find the River”

Hard to only pick one REM song, but I had to go with this one. Note to self: tell mom that in case of untimely death, this is to be played at my funeral. And then 15 versions of “Where the Streets Have No Name,” all played back-to-back.

25. Semisonic – “Chemistry”

Why Semisonic didn’t make it past the one-hit-wonderdom that came with “Closing Time” is beyond me. Then after reading Jacob Slichter’s (the drummer) book about their experience in the music industry, I want to go knock on the doors of the music industry and beat everyone over the head with a copy of his book. Perfectly constructed, intelligent, fun pop.

26. Simon and Garfunkel – “America”

Somehow, this song escaped my orbit until I saw “Almost Famous.” I’d heard a live, solo Paul Simon version, and was completely in love with it. Then I heard the original version and wondered how it was possible I’d never heard it before.

27. Smashing Pumpkins – “Tonight, Tonight”

I’m kind of over the Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan’s voice is like biting into aluminum foil to me. But this song is just so great. It’s sweeping, and lush, and grand, and I love when it breaks into the 3/4 time signature.

28. Sting – “Fragile”

So shoot me, I like Sting (although his last solo album did absolutely nothing for me). This is the most beautiful song he’s ever written, and the production is just perfect. So pretty.

29. Sun Kil Moon – “Carry Me Ohio”

One of Mark Kozelek’s side projects. An ex of mine loved everything Mark ever did, especially Red House Painters. I tried to like them and failed miserably. But this album? This one, I get. This song makes me want to drive on a dreary day. The latest Sun Kil Moon album is interpretations of Modest Mouse tunes, and apparently he’s also done an album of AC/DC tunes. Huh.

30. Matthew Sweet – “Girlfriend”

By now, you should get that I love pop music. Intelligent pop, power pop, Big Dumb Pop. It doesn’t get any better than this song.

31. Sugababes – “Freak Like Me”

A British friend put this on a mix CD for me, and my reaction to it was something along the lines of: “What IS this? Isn’t this an old Adina Howard song? What the hell??” I did a little research and learned this was a trio of British teenagers, and the song was a mash-up of the Adina Howard song “Freak Like Me” and Gary Neuman’s “Are Friends Electric” (I think that’s what it’s called). It’s so awesome, I can’t even tell you. The rest of the Sugababes stuff is hit or miss with me, but when it’s good, it’s GOOD.

32. Velvet Underground – “Rock and Roll”

She says her life was saved by rock and roll. ‘Nuff said.

33. Wilco – “Nothingsevergonnastandinmyway(again)”

I like Wilco when they’re being all weird and experimental, but I love them when they’re at their poppiest, “Summerteeth”-iest best. If you don’t feel upbeat after listening to this song, I can’t help you.

34. Stevie Wonder – “Higher Ground”

Come on, how can you not love classic Stevie? Get your groove on and dance around your living room. Do it!

35. Texas – “Saint”

Another mix CD find from my British friend. I love her for introducing me to this song. Simply the most beautiful (in the non-classical music arena) song I’ve ever heard. I’d never heard of Texas and sought out some more of their stuff, but none of it could live up to this one.

'Freak Like Me' is the best song to top the UK charts in the past five years.

FACT.
