interesting, the test of time…
higher than the sun by primal scream was considered the best song of 1991 by the nme. yet, it was completely forgotten in this (dull) list. check the end-year list: http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/1991.html
the drowners by suede was, according to nme, the best song of 1992. stay together was the 26th best song of 1994. make your own conclusions.
1994. Oasis had two songs on the end-year top-3: Cigarettes & Alcohol at #2 and Live Forever at #3. Supersonic was at #13. check it out: http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/1994.html
1995. Pulp had two best songs in the top ten. Sorted for E’s and Wizz at #3 and Common People at #8. Reverend Black Grape was the best song of 1995, according to the british publication. In this new list, this song is at #99.
Aphex twin’s window licker was #1 at the 1999′s end-year top of nme. how can this song had not resisted to the test of time? (skrillex, anyone?): http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/1999.html
i find this new nme list completely irrelevant. when i want to recall the essence of the past i look for what was written back then.
i’m glad diablo cody picked up teenage fanclub’s the concept for the script of young adult. i had forgotten that song and how brilliant it really is. it’s 1000 times more important for me to remember that teenage fanclub were huge in 1991 than to have a boring list of 100 songs, just because.
