    14. McFly

    May sound childish but I just love the boys.
    Their first album was a bit too boyish in terms of lyrics but the Beach Boys-ish sound did the trick for me.
    My favourite album of theirs is randomly "Above The Noise" which is their worst seller.
    Their merge with Busted turned out to be a success but still I love them more on their own.

    Great list!
    Looks like you're a fond of Brit pop, mate
    My fave from your list so far are Ride, Pulp and the Vines. Next i expect to see Radiohead, Blur, Oasis and Supergrass, approaching to the top.
    Perhaps, Skank Anansie and Kula Shaker too.
    I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

    13. Crowded House

    Ever since their comeback album "Time On Earth" I've re-evaluated their back catalogue.
    They were probably one of the few bands (with Simple Minds) to bring out that catchy pop-rock radio friendly tunes retaining the melancholia inside. Their peak for me is "Together Alone" (1993)

    12. Oasis

    Never afraid of being big.
    Never too scared to be in the limelight
    Deserved to sell out stadiums.
    But "D'Ya Know What I Mean?" as the first single from the album is their capital sin I'll never forgive.
    My favourite album of theirs is controversially "Heathen Chemistry" but all of them are amazing.
    And yes, I'm one of the few idiots who prefers Liam's vocals to Noel's songwriting

    This danish duo is worth checking. They produce a very energetic blend of catchy indie pop and electronic music

    I blame the fact of them missing the top 40 on their mainstream popularity.
    Anyway one of the best bands which sadly never made it overseas.
    My favourite album of theirs is "Language. Sex. Violence. Other?"

    11. Savage Garden

    I think it's good they've disbanded after two albums leaving quite a cohesive package of lovely pop and pop-rock songs.
    Their first album was a bit rockier, especially "Break Me Shake Me".
    I love their accesible but not cheesy sound

    Stereophonics are way better than Savage Garden imo (Although I like SG too). Shame Bjork missed out!

    I was only joking.
    I'm not that fond of Stereophonics back catalogue prior to "Language. Sex. Violence. Other?" except for a couple of singles. It just didn't hit me right. And being inside the Top 50 is still good.

    10. Shocking Pinks

    The musical project of a New Zealander Nick Harte is very eclectic. But as I am a fan of lo-fi and shoegazing this is just the sound I am constantly craving. "Dance the Dance Electric" and "Shocking Pinks" are both amazing albums
    "End Of The World" is beyond words

    9. Sigur Rós

    Absolutely amazing Icelandic post-rock band.
    Every album is just fantastic.
    My favourite one is "Takk..." where each track is a masterpiece.

    Oasis is very low.

    Very good selection of Savage Garden singles, I love all chosen three.

    8.A-Ha

    The band that was evergreen .
    They've probably started off a bit too cheesy yet I love "Hunting High And Low"
    My absolute favourite of theirs are both "Minor Earth Major Sky" and "Analogue".
    It is really hard to choose their best 3 singles (each may have their own) but I've finally settled on these ones.
    Minor Earth Major Sky
    Crying In The Rain
    Analogue

    7.The Jesus And Mary Chain

    Well, "Psychocandy" wasn't a turning point for the post-punk music.
    They were both energetic and relentless in their ways. Their noisy yet primitive rhythms attracted me.
    Even if they had only done "Psychocandy", it would have been enough to earn them a place in the rock'n'roll history books.

    6.Silverchair

    "Neon Ballroom" and "Diorama" are one of the best albums I've heard.
    Van Dyke Parks' collaboration has done wonders for Silverchair both sonically and artisticly.
    I loved their transition over the years into a pop rock band.

    5.Grammatics/Department M


    Fifth position is shared by two acts which have a one thing in common and it is the vocals. Provided by a handsome guy fighting tinnitus.
    Owen Brinley managed to create amazing music.
    Grammatics was an amazing indie/math rock band which sadly disbanded. Their self-titled album is amazing in every possible way. The Krupt EP is also worth mentioning. Their best song is probably "Double Negative"
    Department M took this one step further into a quirky synthpop direction
