Tom Ewing's Top 100 Singles of the 1990s

Postby Quirk Out Lee » Fri May 06, 2016 10:03 am

For FreakyTrigger, Tom Ewing (FreakyTrigger founder, written for others such as Pitchfork) wrote a list of his top 100 singles of the 1990s. This was in 1999.

IIRC (from a blogpost that Ned Raggett wrote), this list was a partner with Ned Raggett's top 136 albums of the 90s - Ned did the album list and Tom did the singles list iirc.

Some great choices I think. Each song in the top 6 is fantastic.
