Hello all, from the west coast of the United States, Los Angeles to be exact. I've been an avid chart follower since 1980 (American Top 40 and Solid Gold). I have my own personal charts for every year from 1980 to 2004 and I'm now working on a massive Top 5000 of all time, including songs from 1979 and before. It will take about six months to put it all together. Would a chart view from the other side of the Atlantic be welcome here? I've been a ghost follower of the site for several months and like being exposed to others' taste in music-- it helps me find new songs.

As an introduction, I'll post my Top 150 of 2004. If you'd like my 2003, 2002, et al. I can post those as well. The Top 5000 will take some time

Thanks,

tdc2000

Hi all... Just a note on the dates for my chart: songs that I became familiar with between December 30, 2003 and December 29, 2004. I spend the last three days of the year ranking the songs in order of preference (as I have been doing since 1990). You might see some late 2004 releases for that reason.

Here are 50-26:

50. "Bounce" -- Sarah Connor
49. "All Downhill From Here" -- New Found Glory
48. "So Far So Good" -- Thornley
47. "Pieces" -- Sum 41
46. "Breaking The Habit" -- Linkin Park
45. "Time And Time Again" -- Chronic Future
44. "Lying From You" -- Linkin Park
43. "Let's Get It Started" -- Black Eyed Peas
42. "Dare You To Move" -- Switchfoot
41. "What You Waiting For" -- Gwen Stefani
40. "Existentialism On Prom Night" -- Straylight Run
39. "Wake Up (Make A Move)" -- Lostprophets
38. "Underwear Goes Inside The Pants" -- Lazyboy
37. "Don't Go (Girls And Boys)" -- Fefe Dobson
36. "Million Miles" -- Fuel
35. "Fall To Pieces" -- Velvet Revolver
34. "Save Me" -- Unwritten Law
33. "Just Like You" -- Three Days Grace
32. "Fall Behind Me" -- The Donnas
31. "This Is Your Life" -- Switchfoot
30. "Anthem Of Our Dying Day" -- Story Of The Year

10. "I Love You Cause I Have To" -- Dogs Die In Hot Cars

I came across the video for this song while browsing around Rhapsody. The Wang Chung-like video drew me in and the chorus hooked me, landing the song safely in the year's Top 10. The song was on repeat for some time after I was lured in.

9. "Still In Love Song" -- The Stills

This song was not a large hit in Los Angeles, but it was in San Francisco, my hometown. Luckily for me, I still check out the Bay Area playlists or I would never have discovered this haunting song...

8. "The Sound Of Settling" -- Death Cab For Cutie

My brother and I are big Weezer fans, so when this band was described as playing in the same style, I had to check them out. I'm very glad I did.

7. "Red Blooded Woman" -- Kylie Minogue

Kylie's had a renaissance state-side these past three years. As an avid 80's music lover, she takes me back to high school. This upbeat number, I believe, is the best of her new crop. "Love At First SIght" is a close second.

6. "Somebody Told Me" -- The Killers

The Killers are my favorite new band of 2004. It's no accident since they play a retro-80's style. The rapid-fire lyrics of this song were inescapable in Los Angeles almost all of 2004

5. "Broken" -- Seether with Amy Lee

Much like "Desert Rose" a few years back, this is a very gripping song for me. There are times it gives me chills. I suspect it will rise with the passing of time. I especially love the violins toward the end of the song.

4. "Summer Sunshine" -- The Corrs

The Corrs are awesome at coming up with pop hooks. This song was my surprise love of the year. Only one even more "pop-y" song beat it into the Top 5 of 2004

3. "Take Me Out" -- Franz Ferdinand

This song plays like two, even three songs in one. I can't resist the transition between the opening more mellow section, and the synthesized middle. It very nearly was the #1 for the year.

2. "TKO" -- Le Tigre

I love dance music with a melody (Black Box comes to mind). Le Tigre fills the bill with this number. It was a large hit in the Bay Area. Check out Live 105's website for more gems like this one through 2005.

1. "Mr. Brightside" -- The Killers

As I mentioned, this is my favorite new band of 2004. No song gripped me more throughout than this one did. A DJ in Los Angeles called it "the song of the year, maybe...". It's not my typical #1 of the year, but it was an easy choice.

Feedback is welcome. If you all would like to see the charts for earlier years, I'd be happy to post them.
