  • UKMIX Best Songs Of All Time: #1 Up

    Hello everyone! It's time now to count down what 31 UKMIX voters have chosen as their Top 100 songs of all time. Over 300 points were required to make the list, meaning at least 4 people have voted for every song in this list. There will be surprises along the way, both in terms of who made the list and who didn't. The battle for #1 was close all along, but which song came out on top??? Just wait and see.

    Here, for those who are interested, is the voting list:

    1. potojr
    2. pepster
    3. chrish
    4. Oscar
    5. Jasmine
    6. matthew_dixon

    27. jlo17
    28. grybop
    29. aob80
    30. eamezey
    31. BanZai

    If you sent me a list an your name does not appear on the list above, please let me know in the next 24 hours or so. Once the countdown starts, I can't add in any more lists.

    The show begins on Friday with #100 and #1000-991!

    Thanks to all voters! We have put together what I feel is a great chart, classic and modern, from nearly all genres.

            Can't wait to see the results!

            I wonder where the one and only En Vogue track will end up...

            And no... it was not my No.1, before anyone asks

              My favourite En Vogue song is My Lovin' but alas I couldn't vote for that as not on the list :(

              I only voted on the best of list as I didn't want to compile list of awful songs- just too depressing

                      I admit now that you are doing the worst songs rundown it is fun to see what awful rubbish will appear in the list alas I didn't do a list

                      I hope Craxy Frog is somewhere near the top of the worst songs list

                        OK. At last, time to get this show started! After two months of voting and 31 lists, here are the 100 songs UKMIX voters have voted the 100 best songs of all time! I'll post links for all songs I can so all who don't know a song can check out a clip!

                        Let the countdown begin!

                        100. "To The Moon And Back" -- Savage Garden (330 points)LINK
                        CD: Savage Garden



                        Coming in at #100 is a tune that was released twice in the USA. It comes from Savage Garden's big debut CD, a CD which also features "I Want You" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply." This Aussie duo had mucho success in the late 90's, but then had some trouble charting in the 00's, disbanding a few years ago. Darren Hayes has moved onto a solo career, with lukewarm success so far. This tune is one of the band's more upbeat offerings. Will their ballads be higher up?

                        #99 up next!

                                Now, for the "missed" songs. 951 songs received votes. 49 did not. Tiebreaker rules apply for all voted songs, but not for ones that were left behind. Therefore, these lower reaches will be in the alphabetical order of the original list:

                                UKMIX Top 1000 Best Songs: 1000-991

                                991. REM - Man On The Moon
                                992. REM - The Great Beyond
                                993. Ronettes Be My Baby
                                994. Seal - Crazy
                                995. Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection
                                996. T Rex - Ride A White Swan
                                997. Tenacious D – Wonderboy
                                998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It
                                999. Tom Petty – Free Fallin’
                                1000. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

                                Poor Vanilla Ice! He's left at #1000. Tom Petty, Tenacious D, the Ronettes (who just missed my votes), Seal (surprisingly) and two REM tunes are some highlights here. The Game may a be a lowlight....

                                    Agreed with Ryan sadly. "To The Moon And Back" is a bland song, and IMO doesn't deserve a top 100 of all time placing.

                                    991. REM - Man On The Moon
                                    Awww, this should be higher! Surprising non-vote that

                                    992. REM - The Great Beyond
                                    Aye - not their best.

                                    993. Ronettes Be My Baby
                                    Barely know this

                                    994. Seal - Crazy
                                    Classic - true classic

                                    995. Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection
                                    996. T Rex - Ride A White Swan
                                    Barely know either of these

                                    997. Tenacious D – Wonderboy
                                    Aye, how did this beat "Tribute" into the 1000? Deservedly this low.

                                    998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It
                                    Oh dear, it was higher on the worst list, wasn't it!

                                    999. Tom Petty – Free Fallin’
                                    NH

                                    1000. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby
                                    What a classic No. 1000!

                                      WOOOOO for Savage Garden, one of my favourites of them
                                      Ryan, this time you're uncool, so we're even

                                      wooo also for both REM songs, Seal, Tenacious D (how did it get in there? )
                                      booo for Vanilla Ice, who the hell likes this song? :-?

                                        Hmmm..

                                        991. REM - Man On The Moon
                                        992. REM - The Great Beyond

                                        Well, they are not really among their best known, are they?

                                        993. Ronettes Be My Baby

                                        Same here, I love this, not sure more than 5 voters know it.

                                        994. Seal - Crazy
                                        1000. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

                                        Well, no votes for these REALLY surprises me.

                                        995. Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection

                                        I barely know it, too.

                                        996. T Rex - Ride A White Swan
                                        999. Tom Petty – Free Fallin’

                                        See 993.

                                        997. Tenacious D – Wonderboy
                                        998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It

                                        Better best forgotten, both.

                                        #100

                                        Not their best song, and definitely not top 100 of all time material. Still, not a bad song to start with.

                                            First of all woo for Savage Garden, great song and totally deserving top 100

                                            Also woo for REM, Ronettes, Seal and Vanilla Ice

                                              Hehe

                                              Not actually 'bland' per se, but considering it as a top 100 entry out of 5,000 songs, it is as compared to others.

                                              Wouldn't you agree?

                                                well, it's not too far from my personal top 100, so I don't really agree..
                                                and considering we're on UKMix, what can you really expect? kids, modern songs, pop music..

                                                  They've had better music but all in all I think it's worth the placement! I quite like it anyway.

                                                    Wouldn't you agree?
                                                    well, it's not too far from my personal top 100, so I don't really agree..
                                                    and considering we're on UKMix, what can you really expect? kids, modern songs, pop music..
                                                    Had i done my all time chart 5 years ago, that song would have been a top 10 entry, I think.

                                                    Have to agree with your last statement though. I think 95% of the songs here are pop songs.

                                                        "To The Moon And Back" is a really good song but I didn't vote for it!

                                                          Great song - one of my favourite pop songs from the 1990s and my personal #12.
                                                          "I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?"

                                                            998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It - it couldn't be higher

                                                            100.Savage Garden - To the moon and back - IMO much too high
