 Share

Recommended Posts

The very lovely Earth-Angel is our first vict... uh, participant :D

Here are her

NOMINATIONS

Afterglow - Travis

A Man Needs To Be Told - The Charlatans

LOVE this video

Amazing - Aerosmith

I was so sick and tired of living a lie, I was wishing that I could die.

It's amazing in the blink of an eye you can finally see the light.

Atomic - Blondie

Big Time Sensuality - Björk

I had big trouble only picking one Björk song - I really love her work and I especially love her videos, so this was a tough choice!

Bliss - Muse

One of my favourite bands, one of my favourite songs and one of my favourite music videos ever.

Breathing - Lifehouse

Crazy English summer - Faithless

Cream - Prince

Get on top, grrrr - yes sir!

Be Quiet And Drive (Far away) - Deftones

Digital Bath - Deftones

SO hard to only put one Deftones song on the list. SO hard :(

Evergreen - Faithless

Everlong - Foo Fighters

Love this video, this band and this song :)

Fade Into You - Mazzy Star

Fell On Black Days - Soundgarden

Fireworks - Embrace

Forever Young - Alphaville

I want to be

Freak On A Leash - Korn

Girlfriend in a coma - The Smiths

High Speed - Coldplay

Hotel California - Eagles

The guitars, the vocals, the song - I can't see how anyone can not love this song.

I'd Rather Dance With You - Kings of Convenience

If I Could Fall In Love Again - Lenny Kravitz

Klaparen - Kent

I love this band, and while I was in Sweden, I just got into them more and sitting on the hilltop in the snow overlooking the town, lonely and cold with the winter bleakness just touched my heart in a very different way. Love it. This is the essence of how I felt, no matter what the words mean :)

Kevlar Soul - Kent

I have time on my side

making diamonds of coal

she put a hole through my kevlar soul

and my heart slowly dies

it gets lonely and cold

she put a hole through my kevlar soul

Let Go - Frou Frou

Loser - Beck

Name - Goo Goo dolls

Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

I am also including the beautiful S&M version

One - U2

Over And Over - Hot Chip

One of the most infectious songs, love it!

Paranoid Android - Radiohead

I had so much trouble choosing just one Radiohead song, especially pre-Kid A.

Plug In Baby - Muse

Quiet Heart - Kent

Remind Me - Royksopp

I life my life a bit like this. It makes me think of my brain and how I think of things. How do they work? Where do people go? Why is the sky blue? How many calories? Order. Process. I have OCD.

Send The Pain Below - Chevelle

I kept my list very heavy song less. I like a lot of harder rock and metal, but I wouldn't say there are any songs which I wouldn't be able to live withhout. This song is important to me - helps me push things that worry me right down.

Sexy Boy - Air

Sleepwalk - The Shadows

Slow Ride - Foghat

Intro song to my favourite movie ever

1219dazedandconfusedpostx5.jpg

Sonnet - The Verve

Stay - Lisa Loeb

Strange & Beautiful (I'll put a spell on you) - Aqualung

Strict Machine - Goldfrapp

I have my reasons.

Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits

Had to have this song!

The Killing Moon - Nouvelle vague

I love this remake, she makes it sound so sexy and dreamy and divine.

The Sky Is Broken - Moby

The Warmth - Incubus

So don't let the world bring you down.

Not everyone here is that f*cked up and cold.

Remember why you came and while you're alive

experience the warmth before you grow old.

So do you think I should adhere to that pressing new frontier?

And leave in my wake a trail of fear?

Or should I hold my head up high

and throw a wrench in spokes by

leaving the air behind me clear?

Wind Of Change - Scorpions

Walking After You - Foo Fighters

Why does my heart feel so bad? - Moby

Poor little guy :( We just want a friend. Some love. Something in this world that makes it worthwhile.

Comment, vote, comment and vote, vote and comment... give the songs a listen, take your time. Each one deserves its due :headphones:

I'm sorry guys - it was a bit of a rush for me to get these out, work stress and all that :stars:

I have the playlist on my last.fm account for all the songs I could find :) It was difficult to chose songs I really love, there are a lot of songs I like a lot! I think these songs are where I am at right now. Somewhere inbetween.

I don't have a song from every artist I love, I know I have left songs off and some songs no one will know. But it's my list afterall, so you never know what you're gonna get :goof:

I haven't really set a fixed date for polls to close. I guess I'll say - when there's a result I like :cool:

... which would mean... anytime :evil:

:D no.. I don't want to rush anyone... I'll give a warning when I think it's time to wrap things up. I'd say by the end of this week, we should have a result?

Good to see a big 90s music fan up first. :bow:

I think the Personal Top Tens should take place over about five days, like the Ultimate Top Tens. If we are doing the PTTs weekly, that would be good. :)
