Anyone else tuned in? Been cracking so far (tho Kelis and The Shins woz robbed!)
I voted for The Rat. Although I thought Standing in the Way of Control and House of Jealous Lovers would be top 10, and they've just been on in the mid-70s.
it wasn't very good.
and then they reformed!
Quite enjoying this, a very lovely Friday soundtrack.
because Pulp haven't released anything in the 10 years 6Music have existed (apart from this week).
6music isn't just Radio 2 for people who can remember when Trainspotting came out
Good Friday listening though this.
I hope that does well!
wouldn't be surprised if wake up does win it tbh
That's it, decided. I'm not moving all afternoon.
I love so many but not crazy about that one myself
so one vote for There There and one for That Man Will Not Hang.
but for some reason bbc iplayer and radio player won't work on the office's internet. I think its because the server is based outside the UK (Niue to be exact). Its so annoying.
try it via the listen live link on their website, rather than via iPlayer http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music
I tried it and it loads up but no sound. I haven't got the player on mute (or the laptop). Its weird.
I press play and nothing happens like with iplayer. Thanks anyway though.
So many absolute BANGERS!!
Anyone have a link to the list of 100 you could pick from? For some reason they've taken it down.
enjoyed heaing Mclusky in at 66, been a nice mix actually.
I can think of few more iconic songs, although I did vote for Hey Ya!
because of split votes between them and Milkshake
Got to be in with a chance surely? At least top 10??
All My Friends, Do You Realize, The Rat, Bloodbuzz Ohio and Wake Up will all be firm top 10 candidates.
Possibly 'Young Folks' because it was the only bona fide hit on the list.
went for the Rat. That Maccabees song was pants
can definitely see them taking it now.
5. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
4. Arcade Fire - Wake Up
3. Elbow - One Day Like This
2. Radiohead - There There
1. Coldplay - Clocks
Coldplay #1 would cause outrage. Kind of hoping for that now.
These are pretty unforgiveable as lyrics go. if that toss is number 1 im going to fist a horse in anger.....its a truly awful track.
it is so fucking perfect.
It was particularly bad on My Girls by Animal Collective
I know normally that happens on radio, it just strikes me as particularly bad in a list thing to not play it all.
I'd bet good money now on Clocks at 1, followed by Arctic Monkeys, Elbow, The 'Lips and then The Killers.
Probably explains it. Certainly why they got my vote.
Certainly don't begrudge them it.
they got my vote
Really glad though.
And given they said they were hoping to get the winning artist in the studio you'd expect that to be Alex Turner?
Probably most mainstream record of the whole 100
It was at number 99.
Milkshake was a hit, but it's also a brilliant, individual and exciting record. Clocks is what beige sounds like.
Cheers, 6 Music, you little rebels.
Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor at #2 is absurd though, never understood how such a terminally boring song could cause so much hype.

But it is hard to to understand someone thinking Clocks is great but Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor is terminally boring.
Clocks may be an obvious stadium singalong hit produced within an inch of its life, but it does what it sets out to do really, really well. It has its shortcomings (Martin and his lyrics will always be a thorn on Coldplay's side) but the final result is still a pretty damn good tune that gets the whole larger-than-life anthem thing right.
Bet You Look Good on the other hand sounds like a run-of-the-mill pub rock tune without a single memorable hook or moment, to be filed alongside The Kooks, The Pigeon Detectives et al. While I'm not a fan, I think Arctic Monkeys have grown to become something far more interesting later on and I can see why people would love them enough to vote them so high on a list like this - I just really don't get why this song in particular gets all the accolades. It does nothing and goes nowhere and sounds like it's bored with itself before it even finishes.
I don't *love* that arctic monkeys track but think it's pretty decent. Whereas the coldplay song to me is the definition of boring
