Yeah, that's what I was thinking but I'd include at least 5 of your, and 5 of 5 other peoples' choices. I can't have 30. I pretty much know my top 15 (say), for the 60s, 70s and 80s, but not the 90s.

I've just been listening to a ropey cheapo mix tape from 93 before I chuck it. Was Open Your Mind (Usura) when I started writing this, but now Mr Wendell (Arrested Development). I loved that good spirited hip hop (De La Soul et al).

A high quality top 40. I thought that Smells Like Teen Spirit would catch Unfinished Sympathy but it kept getting votes and finished well ahead. It was actually released under the shortened name Massive due to the Gulf War taking place at the time.

The Radiohead and Oasis votes were split across several songs which might be part of the reason there was a gap between the top 2 and the rest.

I've thrown the 80s poll figures out Poppy,so I don't know if Sade got any votes but I don't remember her getting any. No one voted for her in the 90s but female singers as a whole don't do well in these polls.

I was surprised Blur performed badly. Just 3 points for To The End and 5 points for Coffee and TV. No votes at all for Song 2 or Parklife or anything else.

I think folk would have  put Blur but  it would appear there is a certain stigma with certain bands ,while others carry a 'must have in my list' tag    Wink Laugh

I expect Kings of Leon and other such cr@p to run a fine race in the next chart DevilGrin

The next chart will be the best one. Given the age and mentality of chit chatters, the selections will be made by actual music fans rather than those who think music ended the minute they turned 17. There will be fewer shared selections because of the multitude of genres that now exist.

The winning track will be one that despite this fragmentation still has a broad cross over appeal to fans of many different types of music, I reckon it will be Hey Ya by Outkast.

Bit of a problem from here on in given young peoples failure to admit that nobody in England
can write a song anymore. This will lead to fewer shared selections, or maybe more, the only
certainty being that there will be no new inventions from England.

The older I get the better music gets: all the great old stuff from before still exists, and you get any new stuff you like on top, and with services like Spotify it's easier than ever to access music new and old. If you're a music fan and you have an open mind you've never had it so good and it's only going to keep on getting better.

Bingo Inner City Sumo!

You might have to look harder for good music but it's never been easier.

Anyone who just goes 'Oh it's all X-Factor and manufactured pop' is just sleepingon the job IMO

1990s had some great tunes

by rights ,no record should be repeating itself on these charts unless folk are just lazily copying what others have listed which is my educated guess  Wink

There were 305 unique selections out of 420, that sounds reasonable to me. I don't think people are lazily copying other lists, I think other lists might act as a memory aid for songs that people might not have initially included in theirs though. On average we're looking at 2 or 3 repetitions per list.

Similarly, in terms of a chit chat vote, we're talking about a relatively homogeneous group- how many women have voted? How many under 30s have voted? That narrows the runners automatically. Given the demographics of chit chat, the fact that the guitar anthem of a particular movement and the decade as a whole came out strong isn't a surprise. Unfinished Sympathy is an anthem to another tribe, however, it is one that was strong enough to crossover from the urban/dance scene to appeal to those with indie tastes and pop tastes. I was more into the indie/guitar sound at that time, but it was a song that most people from that sound loved. A song that transcends genre is one that has the potential to do well in these lists for the most recent decades.

Finally, we're talking about the 1990s, in the main we were still all coming through the same filters in terms of hearing music: radio 1, 2 and Virgin, and on tv TOTP, TFI and Jools Holland, with a small amount also having the one MTV channel and VH1. This is what makes the next chart the most interesting and potentially diverse, we don't have the same finite shared means by which we come into contact with music because there are so many more avenues to pursue.

'A song that transcends genre'

did you copy that line from a music publication  ?  Laugh


agree with what you were saying in the main about voters on here though  -it narrows it down a bit

but still no real excuse though - Nirvana were  better than that pap  -not sure what they were thinking with SLTS ,unless they were looking for a 'hit'
