Okay - well I'll still update my all time chart through December, as it's such a long chart, but might not be all that frequent at updating it. Priority clearly now has to go on the business of getting a 2004 chart done.

I'll start soon, but what's my favourite song of the year? I've put up a poll full of serious contenders - but which one will win?

I know one of them isn't... since "I Love You Cause I Have To" isn't by Morrissey, it's by Dogs Die In Hot Cars :wink:

Anyway, I picked "Dry Your Eyes" for your #1.

WTF? I was sure I'd typed "First Of The Gang To Die" and not "I Love You Cause I Have To". Ah well - you can cross that Dogs Die In Hot Cars one off the list of contenders for No. 1, I guess - but it could still easily be as high as 2 or 3 ;-)

I've gone for Mark Joseph... I think Divine Comedy might be second highest though.

Unlike some charts, yours is prolly the hardest to predict Matthew....I'll go Mark Joseph too cos I know you like that song....

(Speaking of charts, you're all gonna have to wait a week or so for mine, it isn't yet finalised & calculated - haven't got the time to do it right now!)
Let's embrace the point of no return.

I think either U2 or the Streets will be your fave song for 2004 - I voted for the latter.

100. Lemar - If There's Any Justice
If there was indeed any justice, then this wouldn't really be in my top 100 or all that near it at all, but it's a weak year - and this is a very nice ballad.

99. Mario Winans featuring P Diddy - I Don't Wanna Know
More good quality RnB balladry now, this time from the US. Still nowhere near as good as "Ready Or Not" by the Fugees though.

98. Mull Historical Society - How 'Bout I Love You More?
Sorry Colin - but this was a disappointment - hence it barely made my top 100.

97. Daniel Bedingfield - Nothing Hurts Like Love
A really good and powerful song this one - despite it taking a while to get into.

96. McFly - Obviously
Surprised? Well I'll surprise you some more by saying that two other McFly songs just missed out on this list!

95. Thirteen Senses - Into The Fire
Big up to Maaian for introducing me to this song - it's a very nice indie song.

94. Space - 20 Million Miles From Earth
You might be a bit :o about this one, but in my opinion, it was a really bad choice of single. "Suburban Rock n Roll" will be a very long way further up!

93. Silver Sun - Bubblegum
Woo! They're still going! And this song is damn cool as well! Saw them live, brilliant night!

92. Mousse T feat. Emma Lanford - Is It 'Cos I'm Cool?
Cool by name and definitely cool by nature as well - the first of a few dance offerings in my top 100. Odd to think how much I like this compared to how much I hated "Horny"!

91. Band Aid 20 - Do They Know It's Christmas
Okay - so it's no "Band Aid", but it's a damn sight better than "Band Aid II". A really interesting take on the song by a lot of this year's biggest names.

99. Mario Winans featuring P Diddy - I Don't Wanna Know
They put the Enya sample to good use... and it'll be higher up in my list

97. Daniel Bedingfield - Nothing Hurts Like Love
A good song... but not quite his best

91. Band Aid 20 - Do They Know It's Christmas
Not quite as good as the original that set a hard standard to live up to, but still good in its own right.

I'd say Mark Joseph will win.

100. Lemar - If There's Any Justice

How boring!

99. Mario Winans featuring P Diddy - I Don't Wanna Know

I dare say one of the few decent urban tracks of the year.

98. Mull Historical Society - How 'Bout I Love You More?

I hated that.

96. McFly - Obviously

I actually loved this. :oops:

95. Thirteen Senses - Into The Fire

It was nice, from what I remember...

94. Space - 20 Million Miles From Earth

I can't comment as I've never heard it

93. Silver Sun - Bubblegum

Same as above.

92. Mousse T feat. Emma Lanford - Is It 'Cos I'm Cool?

Cool, I guess.

91. Band Aid 20 - Do They Know It's Christmas

Oh no no no no no...

Wow Matthew - what a great start! 3 of them have topped my personal chart at some point this year! Woo for all of the above,

As I said Lindz - the other one is a very long way higher.

Anyway...

90. ShapeShifters - Lola's Theme
Arguably THE dance anthem of the summer - but there's actually other dance songs I prefer. This was just brilliantly put together though - with excellent instrumentation

89. Sophie Ellis-Bextor - I Won't Change You
Heh - any song about changing your underwear must be good, musn't it! :lol: This was big on my chart at the start of the year and still I rank it as a great pop song.

88. Goldie Lookin' Chain - Self Suicide
Suicide is painless, or so it has been said. I would kill myself but I'd be better off dead. Okay, so there's those who wish the GLC massive WOULD kill themselves, but I really like them. The first of FIVE entries on my list - and that's more than anyone else. You knows it!

87. Darren Hayes - Pop!ular
An incredibly "Pop!ular" pop tune from summer now. This is how pure pop music should be done - a really good fun track.

86. Maroon 5 - This Love
A very very good rock song - but it was just so played out that it crashes out at No. 86 on my list. Sorry Maroon 5 fans!

85. Zutons - Remember Me
Their latest single lands at No. 102 on my chart, but the other three are all in my top 100. This was a perfectly pleasant song and it's a shame it barely made the top 40.

84. Brian McFadden - Real To Me
Westlife solo star in almost rock shocker! Yes, Brian McFadden did a u-turn on the image front and produced what I would say is a brilliant slice of guitar-pop music if you ask me. Shame I'm not a fan of either English Tea or Football on TV though.

83. Ash - Starcrossed
The highest Ash entry on my list - they came back this year on top form with a very cool collection of songs - but just not quite good enough to make my top 80 of the year.

82. Maroon 5 - Harder To Breathe
Yes, this is in fact my favourite Maroon 5 song - but that means that they didn't make my top 80 at all, shock horror! Anyway, a very cool pop-rock song that I really liked at the time, but haven't really heard much for the rest of the year.

81. George Michael - Round Here
I can't work out why after the first two tracks off "Patience" did so well, this one bombed. A classic slice of George Michael - rather like "Jesus To A Child" crossed with "Star People".

90. ShapeShifters - Lola's Theme
Great dance song... possibly the best this year. It'll make an appearance in my list, but higher :wink:

89. Sophie Ellis-Bextor - I Won't Change You
Probably my favourite single from her... good to see it made it in.

87. Darren Hayes - Pop!ular
A good solo effort from him... but I liked him better in Savage Garden

86. Maroon 5 - This Love
As you can probably guess, this is MUCH higher in my list :wink:

82. Maroon 5 - Harder To Breathe
Good song... it was my #54 song of 2003.

I went for "Dry Your Eyes", but Mark Joseph would have been a close second!

90. ShapeShifters - Lola's Theme

Great choice!

89. Sophie Ellis-Bextor - I Won't Change You

Yes, my Sophie! This is one of my favourites of the year too.

88. Goldie Lookin' Chain - Self Suicide

Not heard this, but they are generally awful.

87. Darren Hayes - Pop!ular

Good choice. 8-)

86. Maroon 5 - This Love

Great song.

85. Zutons - Remember Me

Didn't like this one of theirs from what I remember of it.

84. Brian McFadden - Real To Me

Quite good, I suppose... :oops:

83. Ash - Starcrossed

'Orpheus' was quite good, this one was torture.

82. Maroon 5 - Harder To Breathe

Absolutely amazing, without a doubt their best, and was criminally robbed of the top 10 earlier this year!

81. George Michael - Round Here

Bland, boring...
