• 'Yes' by McAlmont & Butler

The only good thing they ever did and the only thing Bernard's done since Suede that's been any good. But it is a fucking belter, hooks you from the very first second when Butters hits that low, wobbling, G and doesn't let go. Bet it sounded crap live though...

  • 'St.Augustine' by Band Of Horses

Sounds like a wet day in the mountains spent in a log cabin with the sun out. That. Good.

  • 'La Quete' by Jacques Brel

Brilliant, bitter and cynical voice, suavest motherfucker who's ever lived and he was from Belgium. I could pick almost anything by the boy Brel because, to be honest, I haven't a fucking clue what he's singing about but the delivery and the music more than componsate. If this song was a chocolate bar? Easy. Fry's Chocolate Cream.

  • 'Swallow' by My Bloody Valentine

A band who can make going deaf seem like a small price to pay for listening to their music. Again, I'll be buggered if I can understand a word she's saying/mumbling but a bit of mystery is never a bad thing.

  • 'Poptones' by PiL

Best song of Metal Box and a shame that McGee's using it as his label name as it bears no resemblance to the shite he promotes. Apparently the lyrics are about the memories of a girl who was raped in some woodland while cheesy pop tunes played in the background.

Still a good song though.

  • 'Brassneck' by The Wedding Present

Stupid title for a song but fantastic none the less. Makes you long for a day when bands were happy to be sad.

  • 'Losing My Edge' by LCD Soundsystem

If you can be bothered to waste your life making lists like this then I defy you not to be able to relate to this song.
