Mr. Brightside at number 5? Really? I know it's all irrelevant anyway but I'm surprised to see The Killers anywhere near the top 10.
i bet you look good on the dancefloor better than a certain romance? really?
... I don't know why I'm surprised but how can 'The First Big Weekend' not be in there, but there's room for Kelly Clarkson?
Speaking of which I dreamt that the 'Strap reformed last night - it was on the front page of the newspapers! Then I woke up and was a little disappointed :'(
because since u been gone sounds just like the strokes, innit.
is you can find people in the comments seriously arguing that Oasis were better than Outkast over the last 15 years...
D'You Know what I Mean
I don't know what the best song of the last 15 years is, but it is certainly NOT paranoid android. Everything in its right place and National anthem are both more worthy to be in there.
Wannabe is one of the best 150 songs of the last 15 years!!!
It just confirms why I never read the NME
the debut song by a girl band that had international success and that paved way for over a dozen more and in a listing that is meant to represent "the 150 tracks that have meant the most to us over the site's lifetime" as opposed to "the best", then there is definitely a valid argument for it being included.
There are hundreds of other songs which would have had a similar or bigger impact if they had the same amount of airplay as Wannabe. It is/was popular, but that doesn't mean it's any good.
And the headline to the list is the best 150 tracks of the last 15 years.
stating something like 'funny how they've got Coldplay at number 148 considering they voted it the worst track of that year when it came out [links to provide evidence]'
Further evidence to prove that NME is now overly expensive toilet paper.
and why it is an irrelevance to my taste now. That it isn't meant in snobbish a snobbish way at all, it's just a magazine for a certain type of popular music. Nothing wrong with that, but it isn't the sort of thing I like any more.
is better than Losing My Edge. Remember that
some tossed off manic Street Powerballad is better than the entire eletconrica output since 1998...
Glad to see Fell In Love With A Girl so high though
That really is the NME's list of the best 150 songs of the last 15 years, huh.
list as expected. Got bored after 3 pages.
Funny how bands like The Vines and The Datsuns who NME wanked off at the time have faded into oblivion. Rightly so, but you'd think NME could stand by their convictions.
The last issue I ever bought, I only bought for the free promo of A.I.M by The Cooper Temple Clause.
I'm no fan of NME, but would find it far worse if they were still insisting bands like The Vines were great.
but did my eyes deceive me (i.e. was my skimming to rushed) or did Franz Ferdinand's Take Me Out not make the list? Like, at all.
I must have just missed it, yes?
