99. Hey Boy Hey Girl - The Chemical Brothers (1999)


Hey girls
B-boys
Superstar DJs
Here we go!


The fourteenth and final song on my chart by the Chemical Brothers and undoubtedly their best song. The vocal is sampled from 'The Roof Is On Fire' by Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three.

'Guilt' is fab, it is quite epic sounding. Definitely one of the musical highlights of this decade I think.

'Hey Boy, Hey Girl' is great fun!

98. Left To My Own Devices - Pet Shop Boys (1988)


I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head I heard distant feet
Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat


This is the full eight minute album version from 'Introspective' rather than the shorter edit which was put out as a single and reached the top 5. I like Neil Tennant's poetic lyrics and Trevor Horn's orchestral production.

97. Pray - Syntax (2003)


Don't throw it all away now
Don't get on your knees and pray now


The last of the four songs on my chart by Syntax and all of them from the only album they released. It came out the year before as a single and remains their only top 40 hit,reaching number 28. This is the longer eight minute version. It's still synth pop but certainly much closer to a trance music sound than their other songs.

Another fantastic Chemical Brothers track, I'm thinking you must love Surrender rather a lot! Definitely their career peak for me, although they continue to put out the odd excellent single, even today.

96. Private Investigations - Dire Straits (1982)


And what have you got at the end of the day?
What have you got to take away?
A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies
Blinds on the windows and a pain behind the eyes


This is up there with 'O Superman' by Laurie Anderson from the year before as one of the most unlikely number 2 hits. The single is six minutes long,just missing the extended intro from the album track. There is no chorus,the lyrics are spoken,not sung,and the music is delicate and understated. But in the early 80s,record buyers recognised original music when they heard it and Radio 1 DJs were quite happy to play a long song in full without cutting it off before it finished. The vastly inferior 'Eye Of The Tiger' by Survivor stopped this from reaching number 1.
