NME is having a poll of the GREATEST Manchester Anthems, so far here are the TOP 5;

1. Oasis~ Live Forever
2. Joy Division~ Love Will Tear Us Apart
3. Stone Roses~ I Wanna Be Adored
4. Stone Roses~ Fools Gold
and coming in at numba 5
5. The Smiths~ There Is A Light That Never Goes Out


All great tunes by FANTASTIC bands, however I think the prize should go to Moz & Co.

Do you have to rate them all or just the songs you want to. :confused:

The Fall and Magazine cruelly overlooked, and still there's not a song on the list of 20 that isn't great (except maybe Ian Brown's, I haven't heard that).

Manchester, music capital of the world. And football.

cheers

Another cheap way of having people visiting their website over and over.
Cheap contests, list of the top 10 whatever... and the top 50 whatever... it never ends.

The thing is... the band that wins this wins what? Nothing.
NME.com however... gets thousands of free hits on their website :)

No Fall, no Chameleons, no Mondays, Carpets, James, Northside......

They should have had a vote first to choose the Roses and Oasis best tune first and then thrown them open to the rest of the bands.....

'Blue Monday' 'Sit Down' and 'Step On' are probably the least best singles by NO / J/ HM. They are not bad songs... just too overplayed by lazy DJ's on radio stations and other classics ignored. Same can be said for 'Love will tear us apart'
As for Papa Jack:eek:

Where is Inspiral Carpets 'This is how it feels' and Northside's 'Shall we take a trip'?:guitar:

I ain't a massive fan of those tracks, except 'Sit Down' which I love. However, all these tracks, except Papa Jack, are songs I think of when I think of Manchester.

If I had to actually pick my fav
New Order track - Bizzare Love Triangle
James track - Out To Get You
Mondays track - Gods Cop

...and best Joy Division track would be either 'Disorder' or 'Atmosphere'!

Love PTxx.

For my part I'd certainly pick Blue Monday to represent New Order - at least if I couldn't get Ceremony.
