Recommended Posts

As person-in-charge of these Personal Top Ten thingies, you'd think I'd remain perfectly objective till the very end.

Yeah....... no.

Please give it up for Farin who is putting up a list I order you all to enjoy. I give you his much-awaited:

NOMINATIONS

108 Battles (Of The Mind) ~ Kula Shaker Link

After the Gold Rush ~ Neil Young Link

It's kinda sad that he can still play this song as a current issue... "look at Mother Nature on the run in the 21st century"

All is Full of Love ~ Björk Link

Another Love Song ~ Queens of the Stone Age Link

The ultimate break up line has to be "You're just another Love Song"

Birdhouse in Your Soul ~ They Might Be Giants Link

Any band that makes a song from the viewpoint of a nightlight deserves my uttermost respect.

Black Gold ~ Soul Asylum Link

Black Math ~ The White Stripes Link

This song speaks from my soul during those long math lectures... "I can't tell you how proud I am - I'm writing down things that I don't understand". :D

Blister in the Sun ~ Violent Femmes Link

Blue Monday ~ New Order Link

Of course it's the 1983 original, which is far superior to the 88 remix version, imho.

Cannonball ~ The Breeders Link

ahoooooooh, ahoooooooh

Connected ~ Stereo MC's Link

aahaaaahaaaa, aahaaaahaaaa

Deadweight ~ Beck Link

Don't let the Sun catch you crying... from A Life Less Ordinary OST

Disco 2000 ~ Pulp Link

Let's all meet up in the year 2000, won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?

Disillusion ~ Badly Drawn Boy Link

My favourite singer-songwriter

Driftwood ~ Travis Link

El Mañana ~ Gorillaz Link

= "The Tomorrow" and don't worry, the lyrics are in English

Electrolite ~ R.E.M. Link

"New Adventures in Hi-Fi" is really an underrated album

Enjoy the Silence ~ Depeche Mode Link

Everybody must have felt like this once or twice... or more often. "Words, like violence, break the silence"

Fluorescent Adolescent ~ Arctic Monkeys Link

For Tomorrow ~ Blur Link

If you think about it, it's actually a bit strange that I like both Grunge AND Britpop quite a lot.

Funky Monks ~ Red Hot Chili Peppers Link

Exactly what the title suggests: here's a song about Monks... umm, well kinda

Glory Box ~ Portishead Link

The song that introduced me to Portishead and with that to Trip-Hop... PS Zwobot was the best music TV show (from the best music channel) I've ever saw

God Shuffled His Feet ~ Crash Test Dummies Link

a parable or a very subtle joke?

Ich Bin Müde ~ Fettes Brot Link

Since I knew this was coming, I prepared for this event here;)

Ichisichisichisich ~ Die Fantastischen Vier Link

Lyrics aren't that important here, the title is a pun that's hard to translate, just think of it as "I is I is I is I"

In Silence ~ Low Link

How can such a low-fi song have so much energy? Or is that just me?

Jamming ~ Bob Marley Link

Karma Police ~ Radiohead Link

Besides the obviously great song, this could also be my most favourite music video

Kopfüber in die Hölle / Revolution ~ Die Ärzte Link

see post for what it's about... maybe my favourite Ärzte track.

Lazy Sunday ~ Small Faces Link

The accents and the video alone made me want to include this :D

Love Will Tear Us Apart ~ Joy Division Link

Mala Vida ~ Mano Negra Link

Manu Chao's band before he began his solo carreer

Mr. E's Beautiful Blues ~ Eels Link

I was quite surprised when I finally got the album and noticed that this is a hidden track! :o

No More Heroes ~ The Stranglers Link

Olsen Olsen ~ Sigur Rós Link

Very nice build up, GREAT Climax! in one word: beautiful.

Our House ~ Madness Link

Playground Love ~ Air Link

from "The Virgin Suicides" OST

Pumping on Your Stereo ~ Supergrass Link

This one used to have a different title, I don't remember why they had to change it though... ;)

Rearviewmirror ~ Pearl Jam Link

Just as with 'Black', PJ felt this song was much too personal to 'exploit' it with a single release, let alone a official video

Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat) ~ Digable Planets Link

Hip-Hop + Jazz... or Jazz + Hip-Hop?

Road to Nowhere ~ Talking Heads Link

Would you like to come along, you can help me sing this song

Rose Rouge ~ St. Germain Link

Even if you don't like the music (hard to imagine, I know) you can look at some paintings by van Gogh :)

Sabotage ~ Beastie Boys Link

I'm singing to this every time I hear it. From the "AAAAAAAAAHHH" at least until the first "SABOTAGE" :D

Sappy ~ Nirvana Link

Sleep Now in the Fire ~ Rage Against the Machine Link

Headbanging

Teardrop ~ Massive Attack Link

I don't think I'm exaggerating when I call this THE Chillout Song.

The Guns of Brixton ~ The Clash Link

Not only Strummer/Jones could write great songs, but also Mr Simonon

The Passenger ~ Iggy Pop Link

Written on a train ride in Berlin, backing vocals by one "David Bowie", don't know if you ever heard of him

Was hat Dich bloß so Ruiniert? ~ Die Sterne Link

Becoming famous changes people... "Just what has ruined you so?"

Weather With You ~ Crowded House Link

Listen to each song individually, or make use of this consolidated Playlist

I really enjoyed listing to your list Farin. I didn't know most of the songs so I got to hear some I would defiantly listen to again.

I could have made two top tens for you quite easily :D
