Prince - Free: 7

Certainly the best Prince up to now and perhaps it is no surprise that it is also the first here that isn't from his latter days. Certainly not the highlight of 1999, but there is beauty in the composition.

Two Doors Cinema Club – What You Know: 5

I knew that I heard this before, probably many times, but I couldn't quite recall it. It's a pretty okay indie song, not really all that special. Why this one specifically got so many streams I can't guess.

It's been used in France (at least) in ads and shows to a huge extent. The guitar hook is very famous here.

Shameful that none of you had this in their top 1,000.

It finished #8 on the Ray Charles survey.

Ray Charles - (The Night Time) Is the Right Time: 4
A classic perhaps, but not one I like. This is one gets stuck too much in it's groove for my taste. The background singers repeating "nigth and day" every two seconds gets annoying fast and the instrumentals also repeat themselves over and over. It's part of the genre of course, but it is why I frequently can't embrace this type of music. I tire of this song at the halfway point. I tried the live version from Ray Charles At Newport too, but it made no difference.

Aphex Twin - On: 8
Wonderful! I haven't appreciated soem of Aphex Twin's stuff of the last years, but in his earlier years he frequently knew how to use electronic music for exciting and beautiful compositions.

87. Two Doors Cinema Club – What You Know
Excellent! I like this kind of pop-rock songs. I'm really fond of it. The video-clip is funny in addition. 8/10

88. Ray Charles – (The Night Time) is the Right Time
As usual 4/10

89. Aphex Twin - On
Usually not a fan of techno, this one went well. Thanks to its heady melody from the beginning perhaps. 5/10

Of all of the songs on this poll, I've found myself returning to Two Door Cinema Club's "What You Know" (along with its strangely hypnotic music video) the most, and would like to increase my score for it to a 9 please.

Straight up 1989, but that's a good thing in my book!

Archie Shepp - Hipnosis: 7

Yes, it went on and on, but I didn't mind! It felt like its lost its way a few times, but it found its way back to that interesting groove.

Great find! I remember watching the movie and loving the soundtrack, but hearing it on its own is great.

blink-182 - Stay Together for the Kids: 5
Prince - Free: 10
Two Door Cinema Club - What You Know: 7.5

Very nice find!

Ray Charles - The Right Time: 6
Aphex Twin - On: 7

One of these days I'm going to listen to an Aphex Twin album. I routinely like what I hear.

The Replacements are one of those bands I really want to try more of, but this song isn't the most inviting to really give it a go. Just nothing special to my ears.
It seems listening to Tim for Moderately Acclaimed Albums made me change my mind. I do need to give these guys more of a try and this song is actually pretty good. Upgrade to a 7.

Adam and the Ants- Stand and Deliver 6 One of Adam Ant's standard Dandy Highwayman numbers but no one else was doing this at the time, so he can be forgiven for some retreads.

The Smiths can't though as I hold them to a higher standard! Sheila Take a Bow feels like Morrissey spent as long on the lyrics as Marr did on re-writing the tune to Panic here. Just because I'd probably still sing along to this, it doesn't stop me giving it a 5.

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.
