    Hello everyone! It's time now to count down what 31 UKMIX voters have chosen as their Top 100 songs of all time. Over 300 points were required to make the list, meaning at least 4 people have voted for every song in this list. There will be surprises along the way, both in terms of who made the list and who didn't. The battle for #1 was close all along, but which song came out on top??? Just wait and see.

    Here, for those who are interested, is the voting list:

    1. potojr
    2. pepster
    3. chrish
    4. Oscar
    5. Jasmine
    6. matthew_dixon
    7. werr11
    8. jszmiles
    9. ryan_9048
    10. Pop
    11. FreakyFryBry
    12. FeederGuy
    13. Star
    14. mayhm
    15. mykka
    16. oasisbobo
    17. Tripped
    18. SeeForever
    19. gaz_uk
    20. chris975
    21. tdc2000
    22. Jon
    23. Dane
    24. Stee
    25. darkhorse_86
    26. Thriller
    27. jlo17
    28. grybop
    29. aob80
    30. eamezey
    31. BanZai

    If you sent me a list an your name does not appear on the list above, please let me know in the next 24 hours or so. Once the countdown starts, I can't add in any more lists.

    The show begins on Friday with #100 and #1000-991!

    Thanks to all voters! We have put together what I feel is a great chart, classic and modern, from nearly all genres.

    Can't wait to see the results!

    I wonder where the one and only En Vogue track will end up...

    And no... it was not my No.1, before anyone asks

    My favourite En Vogue song is My Lovin' but alas I couldn't vote for that as not on the list :(

    I only voted on the best of list as I didn't want to compile list of awful songs- just too depressing

    I admit now that you are doing the worst songs rundown it is fun to see what awful rubbish will appear in the list alas I didn't do a list

    I hope Craxy Frog is somewhere near the top of the worst songs list

    OK. At last, time to get this show started! After two months of voting and 31 lists, here are the 100 songs UKMIX voters have voted the 100 best songs of all time! I'll post links for all songs I can so all who don't know a song can check out a clip!

    Let the countdown begin!

    100. "To The Moon And Back" -- Savage Garden (330 points)LINK
    CD: Savage Garden



    Coming in at #100 is a tune that was released twice in the USA. It comes from Savage Garden's big debut CD, a CD which also features "I Want You" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply." This Aussie duo had mucho success in the late 90's, but then had some trouble charting in the 00's, disbanding a few years ago. Darren Hayes has moved onto a solo career, with lukewarm success so far. This tune is one of the band's more upbeat offerings. Will their ballads be higher up?

    #99 up next!

    Now, for the "missed" songs. 951 songs received votes. 49 did not. Tiebreaker rules apply for all voted songs, but not for ones that were left behind. Therefore, these lower reaches will be in the alphabetical order of the original list:

    UKMIX Top 1000 Best Songs: 1000-991

    991. REM - Man On The Moon
    992. REM - The Great Beyond
    993. Ronettes Be My Baby
    994. Seal - Crazy
    995. Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection
    996. T Rex - Ride A White Swan
    997. Tenacious D – Wonderboy
    998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It
    999. Tom Petty – Free Fallin’
    1000. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

    Poor Vanilla Ice! He's left at #1000. Tom Petty, Tenacious D, the Ronettes (who just missed my votes), Seal (surprisingly) and two REM tunes are some highlights here. The Game may a be a lowlight....

    Agreed with Ryan sadly. "To The Moon And Back" is a bland song, and IMO doesn't deserve a top 100 of all time placing.

    991. REM - Man On The Moon
    Awww, this should be higher! Surprising non-vote that

    992. REM - The Great Beyond
    Aye - not their best.

    993. Ronettes Be My Baby
    Barely know this

    994. Seal - Crazy
    Classic - true classic

    995. Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection
    996. T Rex - Ride A White Swan
    Barely know either of these

    997. Tenacious D – Wonderboy
    Aye, how did this beat "Tribute" into the 1000? Deservedly this low.

    998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It
    Oh dear, it was higher on the worst list, wasn't it!

    999. Tom Petty – Free Fallin’
    NH

    1000. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby
    What a classic No. 1000!

    Hmmm..

    991. REM - Man On The Moon
    992. REM - The Great Beyond

    Well, they are not really among their best known, are they?

    993. Ronettes Be My Baby

    Same here, I love this, not sure more than 5 voters know it.

    994. Seal - Crazy
    1000. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

    Well, no votes for these REALLY surprises me.

    995. Stone Roses – I Am The Resurrection

    I barely know it, too.

    996. T Rex - Ride A White Swan
    999. Tom Petty – Free Fallin’

    See 993.

    997. Tenacious D – Wonderboy
    998. The Game ft. 50 Cent- Hate It Or Love It

    Better best forgotten, both.

    #100

    Not their best song, and definitely not top 100 of all time material. Still, not a bad song to start with.

    Hehe

    Not actually 'bland' per se, but considering it as a top 100 entry out of 5,000 songs, it is as compared to others.

    Wouldn't you agree?

    well, it's not too far from my personal top 100, so I don't really agree..
    and considering we're on UKMix, what can you really expect? kids, modern songs, pop music..
    for some reason... I'm here

    They've had better music but all in all I think it's worth the placement! I quite like it anyway.
