    I like this list! Probably there are missing some great bands, but that's just a matter of taste I think... BUT... I do wonder how long you have been working on this list! It doesn't seem like a five minute job! That's probably the reason for the little typing error in number 250.. :-)

    actually, not bad list here :)

    Thanks! Good spot on the typo - the list did take me the best part of 3 days solid to compile.

    What a terrible list. Ashes to Ashes is the best David Bowie song MY ASS. You know songs that aren't generic radio rock exist, right?

    @Jonnyplops Admittedly the list does occasionally move between 'greatest songs in my opinion' and 'my favourite songs'. The two are never quite the same...

    Just made a couple of changes because I realized Tim Buckley had been left out.

    Nice work done here! But... Where's Velvet Underground's Heroin and why not any other Joy Division besides Love Will Tear Us Apart?

    Out 2 2009, 22h34
  • Jimbobbins

    Ah, but Heroin IS there - on line 179. You have a point about Joy Division though....
