412. Finding It So Hard - Archive (2002)


I'm finding it so hard
To let myself be with you
'Cause this selfishness won't go away
I lock myself up when you're with me


Every Archive song I add to this countdown sounds so different to the one before. This fifteen minute epic has a drum'n'bass sound to it combined with electronica. It's from their third album 'You All Look The Same To Me'.

411. Barcelona - Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballe (1987)


I had this perfect dream
Un sueno me envolvio
This dream was me and you
Tal vez estas aqui


Written for the Barcelona Olympics,this got to number 8 on its initial release in 1987 and then to number 2 when the games took place in 1992,kept off the top spot by 'Rhythm Is A Dancer' by Snap.

410. Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues (1972)


Each breath that we breathe
With love we must weave


This was the Moody Blues' fourth and final top 20 single (barring re-releases of Nights In White Satin). They were more of an albums band,releasing seven in just six years from 1967-1972 with three of those topping the album chart. This constant recording and touring schedule took its toll on them and it would be 1978 before they released their next album. The wonderful 'Isn't Life Strange' is six minutes long with lots of different instruments being played.

413. Barber's Adagio For Strings - William Orbit (1999)


Classic track, and far superior to the much lauded TiŽsto version.

409. Let Down - Radiohead (1997)


Don't get sentimental
It always ends up in drivel


This doesn't seem to be on youtube on its own. There is just this clip of it plus the next song on the 'OK Computer' album so you only have to listen to the first five minutes if you choose to play it. I like the big drum sound and the Phil Spector style production which they were deliberately trying to re-create.

408. Afterglow - Genesis (1976)


And I would search everywhere
Just to hear your call
And walk upon stranger roads than this one
In a world I used to know before


From 'Wind & Wuthering' a relatively short song written by Tony Banks. Phil Collins' vocals here are really powerful. When played live,it was often the climax of a medley of songs which started with 'In The Cage'.

407. Frozen - Madonna (1998)


You're so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret


The second and final song on my countdown by Madonna. It was her first single to debut at no.1 on the UK chart. I love the strings on this and William Orbit's production.

406. Every Little Thing (12 inch version) - Jeff Lynne (1990)


You've gotta stop all your reservations
Am I for the chop or is it celebrations?


A really upbeat pop song by Jeff Lynne with contributions from Richard Tandy and George Harrison. It was his highest charting solo single,reaching number 59. The Solid Gold dancers seem to be the American equivalent of Legs & Co.

405. Be There - UNKLE featuring Ian Brown (1999)


You don't wanna be there
Over sea and onto land


One of the best trip hop songs from the 90s,this was originally an instrumental track called 'Unreal' on their 1998 album 'Psyence Fiction'. This version,with Ian Brown from the Stone Roses on vocals,reached number 8,the only top 30 single for UNKLE. The video was filmed at Mornington Crescent tube station.

404. In Denial - Pet Shop Boys and Kylie Minogue (1999)


My life is absurd,I'm living it upside down
Like a vampire,working at night,sleeping all day
A dad with a girl who know's he's gay


From the 'Nightlife' album,Neil Tennant's character in the song is the father of Kylie Minogue's character. An orchestra and choir are added to give the track a bit more scale.

Frozen is brilliantly atmospheric.

The Radiohead song 'Let Down' is quite nice, I assume the next track 'Karma Police' will be appearing in your countdown (if it already hasn't done so)?

403. Don't Let Him Steal Your Heart Away - Phil Collins (1982)


And don't pack my suitcase,I'll be back
And don't take my pictures off of the wall


One of many songs from Phil Collins' first two solo albums that he wrote about his divorce. It missed the top 40,only getting to number 45.

402. This World Of Water - New Musik (1980)


No entry no exit
I like to be beside the sea


The follow up to 'Living By Numbers' which was further down my chart. It only got to number 31 but it's the better of the two songs. It doesn't sound 38 years old at all.

401. Rubber Bullets - 10cc (1973)


Well we don't understand
Why you called in the National Guard
When Uncle Sam is the one
Who belongs in the exercise yard


The first of three number 1 singles for 10cc. There's so much to like here:the intro,the lyrics,the speeded up guitars and the slowed down bit in the middle. The British army were using rubber bullets at the time in Northern Ireland,leading to the BBC restricting its airplay but not quite banning it.
