Due to popular demand, ie Doctor Blind and Dandy*, I will be doing a similar countdown of singles/tracks that have defined our 10 years together.

Similar rules to the albums.

1 Please post your 50 favorite indie/alternative tracks of Buzzjack's Lifetime in this thread
2 The tracks must have been released or must have been taken from an album released between 1st Jan 2006 and 27 March 2016.
3 They must be indie/alt in nature, ie be appropriate for this forum - no Daft Punk or Amy this time either sad.gif
4 Please post them in order from 1 to 50 so I can allocate points.
5 I will do a countdown of the results, the size of which will depend on contributions
6 Voting closes Wed 6th April 23:59.
7 Please use this format - two digits, space, artist, - , track title.
eg
01 Muse - Uprising

8 And because some of us are getting forgetful in our old age I've compiled a list of artists taken from NMEs year end lists to jog your memories. It's also a good idea to read each other's lists for inspiration.

Any other questions, please ask.

Thanks Colm!

I should have a list drawn up this evening - 50 will be very hard to whittle down to but I like a challenge.

Haha, I like the subtitle!
I think 50 will probably be okay too. Always find these things impossible no matter how many are allowed!

Not necessarily, “Olympians” was in my Top 100 of the decade (2010s) which I published in September 2013 - hopefully I can support a few others you've listed. : )

iamamiwhoami is valid. The list is not the definition of what is valid. It is merely a list to prompt inspiration. And now people will be inspired by your mentioning amamiwhoami which is great. biggrin.gif
