    Depeche Mode - Fly On The Windscreen

    Goth Pop at it's best.

    Lithium-Nirvana
    Very cheerful and stable young man, was Kurt.

    Easily their best song though, IMO. Love the chord progression for some reason, and the way the bass and guitar overlap so smoothly in the verse, then effortlessly crank up into the chorus. Easy on the ears, unusual for a Nirvana song.

    Oasis - Fade In-Out

    One of their most underrated tunes IMO. Some of the songs on that album might have been too long; this one was long just because it was. Awesome vocal, and I believe Johnny Depp provides the slide guitar. Fresh and sublime. 10/10

    Radiohead - Climbing Up The Walls

    As Fuller said, best song of the '90s. I can't disagree with that at all. Can't actually think of a song that I would say is any better. Genuinely chilling song, so beautiful.

    Having been alive for the whole 90s I can confirm that the above post is complete bollocks

    Would genuinely be suprised if you've ever listened to it.

    Another really constructive musical argument developing here between PF and Corrin, I see.

    Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot

    Daydream Nation is such an unbelievably good album, definitely in my Top 10 at least. This sets the tone of the album brilliantly.

    PS: Just looking back through the last few pages here. Seriously, I'm cracking up at the idea of me somehow being a "music snob" - what, because some of the music I like isn't 100% mainstream? When you've grown up surrounded by the sort of record collection that I have (which spans a large amount of records in a LOT of different genres) it's not entirely surprising that some of the music I listen to is, quote unquote, obscure. However this absolutely doesn't mean that I'm liking it to somehow be different from my peers, it's because I genuinely think it's brilliant! In many ways I think that the inverse attitude that anything that isn't featured on Radio 2/equivalent or hasn't charted must be bad (because best-selling always = best, right?) and that, equally, anything slightly sonically unusual or avant-garde is rubbish is a far worse attitude.

    Sorry about the somewhat rambling rant there, but music is something I'm very enthusiastic about (about both artists I love and those I hate) and certainly not something I'm narrow-minded about.

    N.B.This is mostly in response to Burgey's post a couple of pages back. I'd be (sincerely, not sarcastically!) interested to see what he had to say in response to this.

    YouTube - The White Stripes - I just Don't Know What To Do With Myself (Live @ Maida Vale)

    Fantastic performance of a great song - one of my favourite covers.

    I dunno if that was aimed at me mate, but I definitely didn't suggest anything like that. Simply took up your points about oasis and sought to refute them.

    Yeah, I saw them at the Big Day Out when they headlined in 2006 - it was an awesome show. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't play that song, but they were still fantastic. Ball And Biscuit and Seven Nation Army were massive, and Hotel Yorba is awesome live. Have you seen them?
