OK....that's really too hard. I'll try anyways. But no order, cause that won't happen:

P.C.P.-Manic Street Preachers
Exit Music(For A Film)-Radiohead
Ride A White Swan-T-Rex
The Bends-Radiohead
Sister Ray-Velvet Underground
Transmission-Joy Division
Teenage Riot-Sonic Youth
Jean Genie-Bowie
Special K-Placebo
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next-Manic Street Preachers


i don't know the order of this, but hopefully i haven't forgotten anything, but i'm having to lengthen it a tiny bit because i'm envisioning this as a soundtrack, and not necessarily my absolute favorites

it starts out with:

Jonathan Richman "new england" with a road trip involving my shitty driving skills

but what else is out of order:

Queen 'Bohemian rhapsody'
They Might Be Giants "until my head falls off"
Mozart "Sanctus"
Juice Newton "queen of hearts"
Von Weber: Clarinet Concerto #2
Catatonia "i am the mob"
Louis Armstrong singing "new york" or whatever its called by the gershwins with more shitty driving.
Belle and Sebastian "you made me forget my dreams"


i also forgot.

"stupid people don't need love" as written by yours truly.


Auuuurrrgggghhhh! Can't do it!

No way!
Too hard!
My brain hurts!
Every list I make does injustice to so much great music!
And what's a top 10 without Moz anyway?
OK. I'll try, but I can't decide on the basis of quality, instead here are my (numerically dyslexic) "10 most sublime songs of all time (in order)";

1. Joy Division - "Atmosphere"
2. Ride - "Vapour Trail"
3. Augie March - "There is no Such Place"
Pi. Tim Buckley - "Song to the Siren"
4. REM - "South Central Rain"
5. Adorable - "Homeboy"
6. Placebo - "Without you I'm Nothing"
7. Belle and Sebastian - "Get me Away from Here I'm Dying"
8. Depeche Mode - "Enjoy the Silence"
9. The Go Betweens - "Part Company"
10. New Order - "Everything's Gone Green"

OK, so I cheated! I told you I can't do this!
Honourable mentions somewhere in there to Billy Bragg, The Boys Next Door, Echo and the Bunnymen, Portishead, Everything but the Girl, Suede, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Neil Young and ... OK I give up!

Now for my ten not at all sublime, "crank the volume up" tracks;
1. The Birthday Party - "Deep in the Woods"
2. Public Image Limited - "Death Disco"
3. Public Enemy - "Welcome to the Terrordome"
4. Sex Pistols - "Seventeen"
5. Sisters of Mercy - "This Corrosion"
6. Dead Kennedys - "Saturday Night Holocaust"
7. Motorhead - "Ace of Spades"
8. Weddings Parties Anything - "Woman of Ireland"
9. The Birthday Party - "Mutiny in Heaven"
10. Jefferson Starship - "White Rabbit"

And The Cure should be in there too.
Bugger me. This is ridiculous, I think I'm turning bipolar. I'm wracked with a sense of injustice for all not included here.
But I'm sure they'll get over it. Perspective goes all out the window with these things.
