Hey, I'm sorry to be another person to do this, but thought I'd join in before there's a ban put on these things!

I will be starting my Top 100 of 2004 very soon, and here's the contenders of 10 songs for you to choose from. Which of these will make my #1 of 2004? They aren't necessarily the final 10 remember. Happy guessing!

Well, I'll like your #1 song - that's for sure! 8-)

As to which one, I went for Snow Patrol's "Spitting Games" with John Mayer close second.

Seeing as it took a virtual residency of your No. 1 spot over summer (however weak you might have found Summer's music) I'm saying "Spitting Games"

I've gone for Maroon 5

I'd be happy if most of those choices topped the chart really :D

Considering the fact that it's been/was on your charts for all eternity, I'm gonna stay faithful to the guy who tangles in the power lines whilst being stranded behind the horizon line :D :wink:

Right here we go then, firstly i'd like to say that 2004 was in my opinion one of the worst years for music, chart wise anyway, where there were in fact only about 4 or 5 songs that actually deserved to be number one. But thats just my opinion. However, there were lots of great new acts to emerge - Maroon 5, Scissor Sisters, Snow Patrol, Keane, Franz Ferdinand etc etc, so its not all bad :D Here's my Top 100 of an iffy year ....


100. Streets – Could Well Be In
Starting off with a song that’s yet to be released. I’ve had a couple of listens, and its quite a good track, but nothing special compared to his other stuff. How I love the lyrics.

99. Twista – Sunshine
When I first heard this I had to turn it off, as he had dared to sample Bill Withers’ beautiful hit, ‘Lovely Day’. But after a few listens I realised its actually a nice homage to the song, and quite a good take on it too. Everything else he’s done is rubbish though!

98. Streets – Blinded By The Lights
Yep, the Streets have lost two of their four hits already. I quite liked this one, and strangely enough it was the first song I heard once I had settled in at Uni. Again, its quite good, but not amazing in my opinion.

97. Beenie Man – Dude
Now I’m sure a lot of you hate this one. Myself, I quite like Beenie’s vocals and the tune, but when the bint comes in and tries to sing it kind of ruins it.

96. Ronan Keating – She Believes In Me
A nice little gentle ballad as usual from Ronan. Nothing special, but a whole lot better than the yawn fest that was ‘I Hope You Dance’.

95. Joss Stone – Fell In Love With A Boy
This girl has three entries in my chart, and here’s her debut. A really cool and interesting take on the White Stripes original. Her other hits were miles better though.

94. Shaznay Lewis – Never Felt Like This Before
Another really cool ballad from Shaznay. I didn’t expect to like this one, and indeed I didn’t like her other single. But this was pretty good.

93. Beverley Knight – Come As You Are
I’ve never been a huge fan of this lady, unlike a lot of you guys, but I quite liked this song from her latest album. Maybe it was because it had a rock tilt to it, but it was nice.

92. D12 – My Band
I usually hate anything these guys do, but I quite liked this comeback single. A bit of a pisstake on everything really, but still a good song. Don’t expect ‘How Come’ or ‘Just Lose It’ though.

91. Nastasha Bedingfield – Single
When I heard that she was releasing a single I didn’t know what to expect. I had no idea she would become as big as she has, but I guess she deserves it. This first release was a cool slice of pop and R&B, and showed us what was to come.

Agreed that it was a rather poor year

100. Streets – Could Well Be In
Great song! Great lyrics, yeah.

99. Twista – Sunshine
Cool

98. Streets – Blinded By The Lights
Also cool - but not as good as 100 IMO

97. Beenie Man – Dude
Expect this one very very high up my chart - possibly even top 10 :o . However, you will of course realise that that would be my worst chart! Truly awful!

96. Ronan Keating – She Believes In Me
Lovely ballad

95. Joss Stone – Fell In Love With A Boy
Okay - certainly a different take on the song.

94. Shaznay Lewis – Never Felt Like This Before
Yeah - nice enough

93. Beverley Knight – Come As You Are
Brilliant song - higher in my list, but then I'm normally a Bev Knight fan.

92. D12 – My Band
Amazing - much higher in my list.

91. Nastasha Bedingfield – Single
Okay - but I personally prefer "Unwritten".

90. Destiny’s Child – Lose My Breath
This will equally make people happy, and make other people very pissed off indeed. I didn’t see any greatness with this comeback single at all at first, but now I think its pretty good, though I can see why some people will not think so.

89. Ferry Corstern – Rock Your Body Rock
You’ll either like or hate this one. I for one like it, and its one of my fave dance tunes of the year. A pounding bass, and Daft Punk sounding vocals, make it a good tune.

88. McFly – Five Colours In Her Hair
I didn’t expect to like these guys, but when I saw them on an interview, I realised that they are actually quite a cool bunch of guys with talent, and in my opinion much better than the high up their stations Busted. This was their best hit of the year, a cool 60s pop sounding tune.

87. Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know
Sadly, this fell the victim of overplaying and a REALLY rubbish answer back track which could make my Top 10 worst songs of the year. Still, a cool rap track that samples Enya the same way the Fugees did on ‘Ready or Not’. Not as good as that, but still good.

86. Avril Lavigne – Nobodys Home
The fantastic and gorgeous Avril makes my Top 100 with all her singles this year, and the first being her most recent, another simply cool pop/rock track. God she’s brilliant.

85. Brian McFadden – Real To Me
Now this may shock you. I bloody hate Westlife with a burning passion, and I still quite hate this guy. But although its still quite a poor record, it kicks ass against Westlifes entire career, and it has quite a good melody, despite the lyrics being beyond awful. I doubt he’ll ever do anything as good though, as ‘Irish Son’ will easily make my worst chart.

84. Jennifer Lopez feat. R Kelly – Baby I Love You
Now this will probably shock you even more! I also hate this bint with a burning passion. Whenever she’s on screen I nearly wretch. But for once, she managed to put together a decent R&B track, that actually had a tune. Maybe it was because of R Kelly, but I really liked this one.

83. Counting Crows – Accidentally In Love
From the brilliant Shrek 2 movie, came this little ditty. A generally really nice gentle pop song.

82. Jamelia – Thank You
A nice little pop tune from Jamelia, and in fact probably better than the extremeley overhyped ‘Superstar’ which everyone seems to think is the best record ever.

81. Avril Lavigne – My Happy Ending
And here’s the second of three Avril songs. Another good track from her latest album. Although they are nowhere near as good as her debut offerings, they are still bloody good.

MEH!

88. McFly – Five Colours In Her Hair
Cool - good fun

87. Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know
Very decent urban track

86. Avril Lavigne – Nobodys Home
85. Brian McFadden – Real To Me
Cool - about right here

84. Jennifer Lopez feat. R Kelly – Baby I Love You
Decent enough, but not amazing

83. Counting Crows – Accidentally In Love
Heh - cool, don't think it was in my top 100 though

82. Jamelia – Thank You
Nah - not better than "Superstar"

81. Avril Lavigne – My Happy Ending
Amazing song, should be much higher!

Good choices. Quite suprised to see Ferry Corsten there but it was a quality dance tune. I pretty much agree with your views about Brian McFadden and that Counting Crows track is awesome.

Overall a good group of songs from 90-81, they're all fairly good, but especially:

90. Destiny’s Child – Lose My Breath
87. Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know
86. Avril Lavigne – Nobodys Home
83. Counting Crows – Accidentally In Love
81. Avril Lavigne – My Happy Ending


All of the above feature in my year-end chart 8-)

84. Jennifer Lopez feat. R Kelly – Baby I Love You


I normally like these two artists - but these two records are a big no-no to me!

89. Ferry Corstern – Rock Your Body Rock
88. McFly – Five Colours In Her Hair
85. Brian McFadden – Real To Me
83. Counting Crows – Accidentally In Love
82. Jamelia – Thank You


Not bad - I don't rate them much though either.

87. Mario Winans – I Don’t Wanna Know
86. Avril Lavigne – Nobodys Home
81. Avril Lavigne – My Happy Ending


These I really like, and should easily make my top 100 songs of the year. And for once, we agree on an artist to be brilliant!

I'm glad there's someone else who thinks that the Pirates answer-song is really bad!
