In Q this month there is a feature on the 100 Greatest Songs ever. I was bored and awake late last night and decided I’d see how many of the songs I had, and make an iTunes playlist of them. I have a fairly paltry 58 (so far) out of 100 tracks. It would be quite nice to have all of them for completeness, but that could perhaps just be me being sad.
For anyone that cares, here is my list:
Paranoid - Black Sabbath Fairy Tale of New York - The Pogues and Kirsty McCall Debaser - Pixies I Am The Resurrection - The Stone Roses No Woman No Cry (Live) - Bob Marley There She Goes - The La’s Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers Golden Touch - Razorlight Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - The Jimi Hendrix Experience Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes Everybody’s Changing - Keane Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers Babylon - David Gray Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles Kashmir - Led Zeppelin Song 2 - Blur Heroes - David Bowie (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones Monkey Wrench - Foo Fighters My Generation - The Who Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones The Drugs Don’t Work - The Verve In My Life - The Beatles Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley Yesterday - The Beatles (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party) - Beastie Boys Take Your Mama - Scissor Sisters Teenage Kicks - The Undertones Mr. Brightside - The Killers Anarchy In The U.K. - Sex Pistols Life On Mars? - David Bowie All Along The Watchtower - The Jimi Hendrix Experience Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys God Only Knows - The Beach Boys Karma Police - Radiohead I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles Creep - Radiohead Everybody Hurts - R.E.M. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Imagine - John Lennon Kiss - Prince Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys God Save The Queen - Sex Pistols With Or Without You - U2 Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley London Calling - The Clash Paranoid Android - Radiohead Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen A Day In The Life - The Beatles Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
The ones that I am missing have tended to be things I own on cassette and have never gotten round to replacing on CD / MP3. That’s my excuse anyway.
