  • NME's Top 20 Songs of the Last 60 Years?

    So what would be in your list?



    ... and I've never heard PULP. Are they really that good

      Nobody would be in my list because I wouldn't make a list. The only time NME ever gets mentioned now is when they do one of their pisspoor. It's Rolling Stone syndrome, just throw up another worthless list to cover over the fact that music journalism is down the toilet and there are precious few artists interesting enough to write about.

            9. Dizzee Rascal - Fix Up, Look Sharp


            This is where I stopped reading. NME is a complete pile of rubbish these days. Just a gossip magazine/website that only cares about the Gallagher's, Adele and Lana Del Rey.

              I agree, but it's no more boring to me than talking about another delay right now

                  The NME and Melody Maker used to be greatness. Sure they built up and knocked down bands even 25 years years ago but they did it with wit and panache.

                      Wow, that's one of the better "Top ____" lists I've seen. I mean, I don't think my list would have more than say 3 of the same choices, but at least they made interesting choices and didn't rely on boomer favorites.

                      Never heard of Pulp? What's wrong with you? They are pretty good and Common People is a really good song. Maybe not the second best of all time, but a much better choice than Yesterday (which probably would have been there if this was a Rolling Stone list).

                        Remember when the only ads in NME were for gigs and records? Now it's full of ****************ing hairspray commercials.

                          I would pick "She's Lost Control" over "Love Will Tear Us Apart." That song is just freaky scary good on all counts.

                              Common People is a classic! Yeah, they were massive here, Different Class was a number 1 album.

                              I think Jarvis is a lyrical genius even though I'm not a massive fan of the band.

                              ...actually I think you'd like Pulp, Indie Music with a Pop Disco bent sounds right up your alley.

                              Check out 'His and Hers' and 'Different Class' .. those are the two albums that made them in the 90's ... although their first album was '83.
