With some friends of us, we made up a very cool game : "elect the songs that would compose the best 80 minutes of music ever".

The rules are simple :

  • don’t pick more than one song for a single artist
  • try not to pick the best song of each of your favorite bands, just pick the best songs ever ! (who cares the band has made only one good song !!!).

Here is the first draft of my list : (that can evolve, of course)

  1. Autour de Lucie’s - Selon l’humeur
  2. The Strokes - Last nite
  3. Franz Ferdinand - Take me out
  4. Pixies - Caribou
  5. Pulp - Common people
  6. The Beach Boys - God only knows
  7. The Kinks - Milk cow blues
  8. Nada Surf - Hi-speed soul
  9. M - Nostalgic du cool
  10. The Clash - Clash city rockers
  11. David Bowie - Space oddity
  12. Blondie - Atomic
  13. Oasis - Fade away (the version from a War Child compilation)
  14. Deep Purple - Highway star
  15. Led Zeppelin - Rock and roll
  16. Björk - Bachelorette
  17. The Libertines - Vertigo
  18. Hot Hot Heat - No, not now
  19. The Velvet Underground - I’ll be your mirror
  20. Roger Glover and Butterfly Balls - Love is all
  21. Blur - Song 2
  22. Sleeper - Twisted

Up to you to build your own list.
