Hi everybody, I've compiled a Top 100 of my all time favourite songs (that was kinda hard). There are a lot of recent songs but I've tried to make a varied chart. So let's start with the positions 100-91:

100. Garbage: Why do you love me? (2005)

Image

The first single lifted off Bleed like me manged to make the bottom of my Top 100. Actually, it took me one year to get into this song and to realize how good and catchy this tune is. There's another song from them to come much higher.

99. Nelly Furtado: Turn off the light 2001

Image

One of the three entries of Miss Furtado here. I love the beginning of this song and it enables you to escape from reality IMO

98. Kylie Minogue: can't get you out of my head: 2001

Image

This tune was absolutely massive at the end of 2001, an excellent dance track, really catchy. Two other songs to come from one of the most famous aussie female.

97. Delta Goodrem: Mistaken identity: 2005

Image

My 2nd fav artist makes her first of six appearences in the chart. Mistaken identity is one of her best singles IMO, it's so different from what she's done before and the video is really beautiful. Unfortunately, it was a little flop in Australia.

96. Seal: Crazy: 1991

Image

This song brings me back a lot of memories from my youth whenever I hear it. There's a kind of mystery IMO in this song (I'll understand if you think I'm mad :lol: )

95. Evanescence: Bring me to life: 2003

Image

The first single from this band was a huge hit back in 2003 reaching the Top spot in several countries. It I had made a chart two years ago, it would have come in the Top 30 but I got a little bored of it since. Their only entry in the chart.

94. Missy Higgins: The special Two: 2005

Image

Although, Missy's voice sounds quite weird on this, this tune is quite moving, telling how lies can kill a relationship.

93. Green Day: Wake me up when September ends: 2005

Image

Another sad song at #93 lifted off the multi platinum selling American Idiot, the best of the album IMO

92. Britney Spears: Toxic: 2004

Image

To be honest, I usually don't like this girl and her tunes at all but with Toxic, it's different, I find irresistiby catchy.

91. Jamelia: Thank you: 2004

Image

English popstar Jamelia entered at #91 with the UK Top 3 hit from 2004. A really good little song.

Well, hope you've enjoyed, sorry for all the catchy/tune stuff. I'll try to make ten others tomorrow

100 - really don't like last Garbage album.. :-?
99 - not my type.. actually got very tired of it back in 2001
98 - HATE this, sorry
97 - woooo for this
96 - also great song, though it's a bit earlier than 1994 I think
95 - great stuff
94 - can't remember this particular song, but Missy Higgins is great
93 - boring, very long, very overhyped - only works in context of album, if you ask me
92 - good Britney song
91 - decent

Oops, sorry, I've edited my post,

Thanks for your comments, let's continue with the positions 90-80:

90. Gwen Stefani: Hollaback girl: 2005

Image

My guilty pleasure of 2005 although I totally hated it at first.

89. The Cardingans: My favourite game: 1998

Image

Took me a while to get into this song, but I always enjoy listening to it.

88. John Travolta/Olivia Newton John: You're the one that I want (1978)

Image

From the mega film Grease, huge success for this irresistible pop song

87. ABBA: Dancing queen: 1976

Image

A classic from the most famous Swedish band but not their best IMO

86. The Corrs: Breathless: 2000

Image

A great pop track from their album In blue

85. The Red hot Chili peppers: Around the world: 1999

Image

Second single from the mega seller Californication, shame it's not included on their greatest hits collection

84. Meat Loaf: I'do anything for love (But I won't do that): 1993

Image

The music video for this song is awesome, huge success and well deserved for this song

83. Texas: I don't want a lover: 1989

Image

A king of mix between rock and dance (well I don't really know how to describe it): Excellent, their best tune IMO

82. Madonna: Like a prayer: 1989

Image

A pure masterpiece with a controversal video,

81. Haddaway: What is love: 1993

Image

One of the biggest dance hits in Europe, great musical track

80. Junior Senior: Move your feet: 2003

Image

Another dance hit, irresistibly catchy

Thanks for pointing this out :oops: . So I will introduce only 9 songs instead of 10. And Woo for for all your comments :P

79. Nelly Furtado: Powerless (say what you want): 2003

Image

Her second of the three appaerances in my chart. Great message in this lovely tune

78. Blink 182: I miss you: 2004

Image

To be honest, I only know the stuff of their latest self titled album from 2003. I've heard many people saying that their earliest songs were better. Anyway, although it's quite sad, it's a really good song.

77. Jamelia: Superstar: 2004

Image

And yes another song from 2004, one of the catchiest tunes of this year. I surprised myself singing many times times two years ago.

76. Kelly Clarkson: Low: 2003

Image

The winner of the first series of American idol lands at #76 with this pop/rock tune from Thankful (not a bad album this one). Unfortunately, except in Australia and Canada, it flopped everywhere else :cry:

75. Delta Goodrem: Not me Not I: 2003

Image

Like Nelly Furtado, second appearence here from my fav Aussie act. A very beautiful tune with a gorgeous video.

74. Talk Talk: Such a shame: 1984

Image

A classic from the 80's. Great song;

73. Kim Wilde: Cambodia: 1981

This girl had a huge success in the 80's thanks to Cambodia or Kids In America. Her best effort IMO

72. Outkast: Hey ya: 2003

Image

This absolutely catchy RNB anthem of 2003 enters my chart at #72. But there's a fact that I can't stand the all girls screaming in the video. At first, it's quite funny but it becomes really annoying after a while.

71. Delta Goodrem: Eletric storm: 2004

Image

I've never understood why this song never got a release as a single. A very classy tune

I don't know if I'll be able to post the 10 next songs tomorrow as my vacation of 2 months has just ended today :cry: .

Here are positions #70-#61. Here we go:

70. Natasha Bedingfield: Unwritten: 2004

Image

One of the biggest hits of the year in the US and well deserved. It's better than These words even though I like the latter. The part with the choir is really great. Amazing.

69. Savage Garden: Crash and burn: 2000

Image

Without a doubt, one of the best aussie acts. Very familiar lyrics. Great musical track. Good job from these guys, as usual.

68. Madonna: Drowned world/Substitute for love: 1998

Image

Third single lifted off the excellent Ray of light album. Relaxing, one of her best.

67. Tracy Chapman: Baby can I hold you: 1988

Image

At first, I thought that Tracy Chapman was a man :oops: .Great song. Her voice conveys a lot of emotion.

66. Beyoncé/Jay Z: Crazy in love: 2003

Image

Irresistiby catchy tune from 2003. Brings me back amazing memories

65. Abba: Fernando: 1976

Image

One of my fav bands scores a second entry with this beautiful song.

64. Nickelback: How you remind me: 2002

Image

Although, I don't like this band and especially Chad Kroeger's voice, I managed to like this tune, the only one I like from them.

63. Brooke Fraser: Saving the world: 2004

Image

From the talented and rather good looking singer from New Zealand comes Saving the world. I discovered it only 2 months ago to be honest a little thanks to Virgostar and I love it. A good message and an excellent tune.

62. Run MC vs Jason Nevins: It's like that: 1997

Image

One of the biggest hits of 1999. Great job from Jason Nevins.

61. Aaliyah: Try again: 2000

Image

This song was apart of The film Romeo must die. Good RNB tune from this girl who died tragically in a planecrash in 2000.

Maybe tomorrow or saturday, I'll post the next ten positions

60. Savage Garden: Affirmation: 2000

Image

And yes, here they are once again but I do like them actually. Strangely enough, I don't really like the beginning, Darren's voice is quite strange IMO but the chorus and the rest of the song are excellent.

59. Kylie Minogue: Confide in me: 1994

Image

Another aussie act in the chart. This song is so different from what Kylie's done, a bit of mystery in this song.

58. Wet Wet Wet: Love is all around: 1994

Image

Great ballad from the film 4 weddings and a funeral

57. The Cranberries: Promises: 1999

Image

Not their biggest success but their best song IMO, even better than Zombie or Ode to my family

56. Madonna: Vogue: 1990

Image

Like Kylie Minogue, she is one of the best female artist. I can't help but move my feet whenever I hear Vogue to be honest.

55. Gorillaz: Dare: 2005

Image

Released at the end of last year, it was the second single lifted off Demon days, really catchy.

54. Alanis Morissette: Thank you: 1998

Image

The talented Alanis Morissette lands at #54 with this song. It wasn't as successful as the singles from jagged little pill unfortunately.

53. Berlin: Take my breath away: 1986

Image

Another ballad in my chart!. Shame that jessica Simpson ruined it in 2004.

52. Blondie: Heart of glass: 1979

Image

One of the best songs of the 70's definately, I like listening to it late at night.I don't know why.

51. Sixpence none the richer: 1999

Image

A lovely pop tune, always brings me back some good memories.

55 - never saw the fuss about last year's Gorillaz comeback and this song is no exception
54 - her voice gets incredibly annoying on this one, but still ok
53 - good.. and Jessica can ruin anything :lol:
52 - good
51 - great! already charted in my chart

Hi, let's enter in the second half of the chart:

50. Bananarama: Cruel summer: 1983

Image

The British girl group had several hits in the 80's like Cruel summer, Venus ot Robert DeNiro's waiting. A typical song of this decade who brings you under the sunlights lol. This song was remade in 2004 as a french RNB song (not a bad cover this one).

49. REM: Everybody hurts: 1993

Image

The best tune from this classy band. Positive message that can comfort you when you're depressed. I'll always remember when they sang it during the Live8 in London last year. A great moment.

48. Alanis Morissette: Hands clean: 2001

Image

Her second entry in my chart. A song I hear whenever I feel depressed, a feel good tune IMO. Shame it flops in the US and the UK.

47. Shania Twain: From this moment on: 1998

Image

Lifted off the excellent Come on over album, this ballad was a Top 10 hit in several english speaking territories. A magical moment, very beautiful.

46. The Beatles: She loves you: 1963

Image

First of the three appearences of the Beatles in my chart. It's really catchy and this song marked the beginning of the Beatlemania in many countries.

45. Gabrielle: Rise: 2000

Image

This singer has a great voice. A quite moving song which tells that you have to 'rise', whenever you feel depressed, sad or low.

44. Ace of Base: All that she wants: 1993

Image

Some people think it's only a piece of fun and I think they're right in a sense. I always feel more cheerful whenever I hear it (I don't know why)

43. Madonna: Into the groove: 1985

Image

One of her biggest success. Shame it never got a release in nthe US, this song was the theme of Desperately Seeking Susan, an excellent dance track.

42. James Blunt: High: 2005

Image

Probably the 'happiest' song off the quite depressing (although it's very good) Back to Bedlam album.

41. Craig David: 7 days: 2001

Image

The only song I like from this artist who hit the jackpot back in 2001 with this. A feel good tune IMO
