Actually, looking at my copy of TOC, it says (c)1967 only.

10 The Ones - Flawless (Italo Disco mix) (2001)




Discovered on:
Somewhere on the net

I probably hadn't heard the Phunk Investigation remix, which is the version that became a hit, by the time I was compiling this list. The version I knew then was probably the original mix (you can hear a bit of it in the presentation video), but I can't find it anywhere today.

EDIT: Found.

09 Christophe - Samourai (et moi je suis à ses pieds) (1976)


Image

Discovered on:
The eponymous album.

You could tell by now that I really love this guy. One of the first things I did when I got my PC in 2001 was to build a site about him on geocities. It's crap design-wise, but has had hundreds of thousands of visitors until now, probably because there are not many sites on Christophe out there. Anyway, this song is from his rock era.

Down on fours!

08 Dido - Hunter (2001)




Discovered on:
MTV.

Bitter song this one. Probably my fave Dido song today - helped by a fantastic deep house Francois K remix.

07 Manu Chao - Bongo bong / Je ne t'aime plus / Mr. Bobby (1999)




Discovered on:
MCM and the single.

This song (well, it's actually 3 different songs with the same backing track) had been in my head for more than a year already, but it was only when I purchased the single that I really enjoyed it. While the video (and the album) has the 2 first songs back to back, a third one was added on the single, randomly about Bob Marley, which seamlessly continues where the others end, forming a nice little trilogy, which I had to chart as a whole, since I listened to it as such.

The first two tracks were later covered by Robbie Williams.

Manu Chau's Bongo Bong song is GENIUS and Hunter is one of Dido's better songs

It's been ages since I've kept up with this chart :wink:

Glad to see you like "Dream On" 8-) It's the ultimate Aerosmith song for me.

I think I prefer George Michael's version of "Flawless" And Dido's isn't too bad.

The Ones, Dido, Manu and even Christophe sound great/ good to my ears. The ones' is something i've always liked, Dido's i like now more than before, Manu- on and off, and Christophe, of course just now. Ooooh and I have to thank you for "recontextualizing" Dido for me. I've been on a download discogs rampage for months now and had to get Dido's at some point. For some odd reason how she fitted on your medley has pointed exactly to me her music's allure. Thanks. 8-)

From the medley I have a strong inkling as to which your #1 for 2001 is. :wink:

Naturally your entrance is grand
Red carpet rolled out, on the side they stand
Worshipping you like a god and like a goddess
Somehow...
You remain modest
Flashbulbs pop, paparazzi goes wild
With amazing grace, you walk and smile
They answer to your beck and call
You're flawless

I love that track...

06 Dido - Here with me (1999)




Discovered on:
Capital 96.5 (now defunct radio station).

The wonderful ballad that introduced most of us to the loveliness that is Dido. Hers and Colbie Caillat's must be the most beautiful cheeks in the music industry today.

05 Björk & Thom Yorke - I've seen it all (2000)




Discovered on:
TV, but I guess I would have heard it anyway.

(Almost) taken from Dancer In the Dark - the song's a duet between Bjork and Peter Stormare in the movie. A song about being content with whatever little you may have seen (accomplished?) in life, as long as you feel complete. Amazing performances from both singers.

04 Alpha - Sometime later (1997)




Discovered on:
A CD that came free with a mag.

I've no idea who Alpha are, but somehow this song was stuck in my CD player in 2001 and wouldn't get out. And it did take me a lot of listens to get into it, cos it's one of those seemingly interminable ultra-slow numbers where (almost) nothing happens and can bore you to death if you're not in the right mood. Seeing the video for the first time years afterwards made me cringe, as I find it unfitting, plus they cut off 2 mins of the song.

One of my fave songs ever - one of my fave videos ever. Planet Funk went on to release a few absolutely brilliant singles after this one.

02 Bran Van 3000 - Astounded (2001)




Discovered on:
National radio.

Curtis Mayfield was an amazing musician and also possessed one of the sweetest male voices in soul. When canadian collective Bran Van 3000 updated a recording of his for the 00s, the result was magnificent. Gotta love those strings!
