-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), August 28th, 2004.

Wow, Usher and Nina weren't even close.
-- The Good Dr. Bill (fadeout9...), August 28th, 2004.

I will never get LCD Soundsystem.
-- jel -- (freeduni...), August 28th, 2004.

OMG, Bardo Pond and Mogwai didn't miss by much!
Drugstore got more than just my vote!!
Depeche Mode's "I Feel Loved" must have got mine + someone else's - two hate votes!
Post ballots too plzokcool.
-- Barry Bruner (brune...), August 28th, 2004.

Oi - my ballot is private.
-- Alba (albab...), August 28th, 2004.

i'll probably return everyone's vote to them via the e-mail address they supplied and then they can post them here or on a new thread if they want.
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), August 28th, 2004.

perfectly understandable
-- Barry Bruner (brune...), August 28th, 2004.

Actually, I saved a copy of my ballot, so I'll just start that thread now ...
-- Barry Bruner (brune...), August 28th, 2004.

Crikey! I didn't nominate La Novia but ended up being the only one who voted for it.
And if I'd voted for "Hunted by a freak" instead of "Take me somewhere nice" in the same 32 point spot...
-- Leeeter van den Hoogenband (leeee...), August 28th, 2004.

156. Femi Kuti - Beng Beng Beng (Chateau Flight mix) (45)
Sigh. Well, at least I can count on a few other votes for my '90s nominations, I hope.
-- Eric H. (ephende...), August 28th, 2004.

So is someone going to be sending out CDs then?
-- artdamages (chris.tha()mri...), August 28th, 2004.

Eric i really want to hear that track as I like the original and i totally need more Chateau Flight in my life i think - i just havent got round to hearing it, and i knew nobody else would vote for it
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), August 28th, 2004.

xpost
sure Chris, but it will take a week or two to sort out - hold tight
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), August 28th, 2004.

Oh I'm not trying to rush you. I was actually wondering if someone else was going to take that on since you've already done so much work. Perhaps someone could do the US mailings?
-- artdamages (chris.tha()mri...), August 28th, 2004.

console's "zero zero" (actual title - "14 zero zero", unless this is indeed some remix or something that i don't know about) was released in 1997!!
-- m. (mitchnet70NOSPA...), August 28th, 2004.

Steve, it's jaw-dropping in my opinion. It's got this navy nightscape menace underneath (opening and closing with gargantuan snatches of trash-compacter crecsendo-decrescendo) and alien-tabla (or Mars-pogo, take your pick) bounce-happy beats (an intoxicating hybrid of d&b and house polyrhythms). And, of course, Femi's super-sexy vocals, with enough reverb to sound like he's singing right into his robot lover's metallic vagina.
-- Eric H. (ephende...), August 28th, 2004.

wow, i killed dirrty
-- Symplistic (shmuel...), August 28th, 2004.

Hero for a second time.
-- The Good Dr. Bill (fadeout9...), August 28th, 2004.

Ooh, if I hadn't gone on holiday and forgotten to vote, more of my choices would have been outside the top 100 than in. I wasn't expecting that.
-- coco (coli...), August 28th, 2004.

RE: CDR: What should I do to get on that list? I'm excited to hear a great deal of this stuff...
-- Forksclovetofu (forksclovetof...), August 28th, 2004.

sound like he's singing right into his robot lover's metallic vagina.
that's ma boy...(see Goldfrapp review)
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), August 28th, 2004.


-- Gear! (drink_to_remembe...), August 29th, 2004.

Whew. I was worried I'd unwittingly ripped-off the metal box-chowing vocalization line. Whatever gets people to (belatedly) listen to the track.
-- Eric H. (ephende...), August 29th, 2004.

122. Sticky (featuring Miss Dynamite) - Boo! (85)
123. B15 Project - Girls Like Us (82)
128. So Solid Crew - 21 Seconds (78)
ILM in NOT-ENOUGH-LOVE-FOR-2STEP SHOCKAH!
-- randy mamola (rand...), August 29th, 2004.

I can't believe Britney has 3 tracks and "Dirrty" didn't even make it!!! There should be a recount without the HATE VOTES!!! (I think it would have been #88 or something.)
Great job anyway Stevem, this was lots of fun! I wonder what I'll be looking forward to every morning from now on... Quick, bring on the 90's poll!
-- Seb (sebastien.caro...), August 29th, 2004.

WOW Who voted for Peom-Cees? (Ned didn't vote!)
-- VengaDan Perry (djperr...), August 29th, 2004.

Who the heck voted for Crispy Ambulance?
-- Dr. C (Daveatcrossdee...), August 31st, 2004.

i will post a list sans hate votes in due course
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), August 31st, 2004.

Has anyone commited suicide because of these lists yet?
-- Jimmybommy JimmyK'KANG (sickmouth...), September 1st, 2004.

ILM in NOT-ENOUGH-LOVE-FOR-2STEP SHOCKAH!
I was just thinking about this tonight. I loved "Out Of Your Mind" and "Crazy Love" soooo much back in the day.
Also, what about Spiller "Groovejet" and Modjo "Lady"!!!
-- Spencer Chow (spencercho...), September 1st, 2004.

and what about No Doubt's "Hella Good" eh?????!!!!?????
(many have already said this, but it can't be said enough - thank you very much for all this Steve, you're a hero!)
-- Mind Taker (djevojk...), September 1st, 2004.

Also, what about Spiller "Groovejet" and Modjo "Lady"!!!
Both of these didn't even occur to me, possibly because they now seem so long ago. It was only this morning when I suddenly thought "where the hell is Can't Get You Out Of My Head?!"
-- Matt DC (runmd...), September 1st, 2004.

I thought of Spiller, and the FT disdain for it.

-- Matt DC (runmd...), September 1st, 2004.

37. The White Stripes - 'Fell In Love With A Girl'
-- Alba (albab...), September 1st, 2004.

i think it's false to say these would have made the top 100 give the cif voting block

I think we might genuinely find 100 songs that could have placed here.
-- Matt DC (runmd...), September 1st, 2004.

I like the idea of getting to 100 songs, with the implication that not a single track on the original list would have made it if these had been nominated.

imagine having both the bootleg AND the two tracks it pilfers...actually this would just seem wrong

Coldplay - Cocks
Sigmund to thread

99. Streets - Has It Come To This?
-- Matt DC (runmd...), September 1st, 2004.

imagine having both the bootleg AND the two tracks it pilfers...actually this would just seem wrong
yeah, but I would personally ditch the 2 originals. This is the one mash-up which IMO improves on both its sources.
-- zebedee (zebede...), September 1st, 2004.

i disagree totally there
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

same with 'Smells Like Teen Booty' - one of the weaker Soulwax boots unlike 10cc/Destiny's
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

100. Nickelback 'How You Remind Me'
OMG LOL
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

I think No.100 should be another Radiohead track.
-- Alba (albab...), September 1st, 2004.

ok Missy 'One Minute Man' then
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

They made that? Wow, they are so multi-talented!

Well anyway, rocking list.

RIGHT! LOCK THIS THREAD NOW AND GIVE ME MY LIFE BACK!
-- Matt DC (runmd...), September 1st, 2004.

And *still* we forgot Girls Aloud - The Show. Can we let them in at 100 instead of Nickleback?
Poor Girls Aloud. First they get beaten by three Radiohead songs and now this...
-- Matt DC (runmd...), September 1st, 2004.

what about One True Voice?
-- Alba (albab...), September 1st, 2004.

Hearsay?
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

Oh yeah.
-- Alba (albab...), September 1st, 2004.

my preference for the Kurtis Rush might be because I heard it before either of its sources!
as for Soulwax, well, diff'rent strokes... ("Dreadlock Child" is grebt too, tho', I'll happily substitute that for #87)
-- zebedee (zebede...), September 1st, 2004.

you people are nuts

it's never over
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

Jess is right. Liberty X - 'Jumpin'' FFS! Sarah Whatmore over J.Lo! Space Cowboy! The constant Girls Aloud masturbation! YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK!!
-- R.I.M.A. (b4rim4_...), September 1st, 2004.

it's never over
ha ha - on my way back from lunch I was thinking about the possibility of a rolling poll, powered by web forms and some kind of database backend.
-- Alba (albab...), September 1st, 2004.

argh, Space Cowboy was what i was trying to think of but failing so had to put Linus Loves...all is ruin
-- the neurotic awakening of s (stevem7...), September 1st, 2004.

I would have voted for space cowboy!

One of these days I will start a thread about unknown/underdog acts that I've championed after only one brilliant single.

WOW
-- Senor Embargo (stevem7...), October 6th, 2004.

Shweet!
However, Mirah's "Cold Cold Water" was actually released as a single and thus has its own album cover:
