as i start this entry there are 27 or so minutes left of christmas day, i took me ages to sort this entry out and im kinda hoping ill finish it before midnight. i am going to get my whiskey from sitting room first. hang on….
back. got it.
ive consoled my lack of aga sadness with a bit of light paper/magazine reading and have decided i hate ‘best of 2004’ lists. i wont do one. we all know that keane sold unreasonably well and that the libs album is awesome. and yes, everyone says the mark lanegan is good but im still not going to listen to it ok? and yes, everyone can dance to the scissor sisters. even my nan.
so. to cut a long rant short i’ve complied my ‘best singles of 1996’ list. theres nothing obscure. only anything that hit the top 40. or now 26 & 27. its more fun than reading about how much will young likes the new kings of leon album or how mylo thinks the mix on the new prodigy album is “cacophonous”.
the list is alphabetised. this is for three reasons. 1 – i’m a nerd. 2 – i used ipod smart playlists and chart sites lots. 3 – its christmas. (19 minutes and counting).
