I dunno it might because its singles but there was a Guardian/HMV/Channel Four best albums of the millennium poll and there was a LOT of 90s albums in it. There was just this big thing, in the UK at least, about how the 90s was a golden time and how recent albums were the best albums ever. So it might not exist now but with radio 1's audience generally being under 25 I do thing any best singles ever poll would be dominated by songs from the past 10 years.

amazing what came first, i wonder if there was some sort of block-vote or something.

I honestly dont know but it was certainly one song that did bring together rock/pop/indie/dance fans together. It also had taken on the air of a Classic but was still recent enough for radio listeners to feel connected to it.

I got no complaints about it winning!

Yeah, there's a lot of dodgy stuff in the list but that's a fine choice for #1.

Gavin, Leeds, Sunday, 4 August 2013 19:23 (nine years ago) link

me either no! but it wasn't even that big a hit, it only got to number 13.

average age of a Radio 1 listener is *32* now incredibly. http://www.theguardian.com/media/2013/aug/01/nick-grimshaw-bbc-radio-1-breakfast

piscesx, Sunday, 4 August 2013 19:24 (nine years ago) link

yeah wasnt that why they moved moyles and westwood? to cut the average age?

btw Radio 2 did an albums poll

iirc Mezzanine came out in late '98 so Massive Attack were kinda hot at that precise time - might not have factored hugely into them winning this thing but it can't have hurt

xp mm i wonder why it hasn't worked. so many 30somethings clinging onto their youth i suppose, myself included although even i've given up on Radio 1 these days.

piscesx, Sunday, 4 August 2013 19:42 (nine years ago) link

I gave up on it in my 20s! Im not sure I was even still listening to R1 by this time (of the poll) except in the evenings/latenight shows.

Moyles was the worst though. If he ends up on Radio 2 I'd never listen to it again either.

what do you listen to on radio 2 xp

Nilmar Honorato da Silva, Sunday, 4 August 2013 19:50 (nine years ago) link

doesnt seem as if radio 3 have ever had anything so witlessly demotic as a listeners' poll

Nilmar Honorato da Silva, Sunday, 4 August 2013 19:52 (nine years ago) link

tbh i dont even listen to r2 now unless I'm in my dads car. I like Ken Bruce though.

the musics pretty rubbish however

A former double glazing salesman who failed his GCSEs has beaten one of history's most celebrated child prodigies in a poll to determine the millennium's most influential musicians. More than 600,000 people judged the musical legacy of Robbie Williams to be more enduring than that of Mozart.

Williams, who in less than four years has completed the transformation from boy band novelty to grown-up super-stardom, was the only newcomer to achieve success across the various categories in the survey.

In the poll for Channel 4, HMV and Classic FM, who claimed it was the biggest of its kind, Williams was beaten only by Elvis Presley to the title of best male singer. Angels came third in the best song category, and the singer made it into the top 10 for best album and best songwriter.

The poll was dominated by the Beatles, whose success can almost be taken for granted since they always top surveys of musical tastes. John Lennon was named most influential musician of all time; Williams was sixth, ahead of Mozart at seven, and Johann Sebastian Bach at number 10. Madonna was rated the best female singer.

The performance by Williams confirms him as a star on the same level as George Michael and Sir Elton John - even though he has released only two solo albums since he split from Take That in 1996.

Simon Frith, who chairs the Mercury music prize panel of judges, and is professor of film and media at Stirling university, said Williams's work had a "balladic credibility": anyone listening to his work for the first time would be impressed with its quality, even if they had never heard of the singer. "For me, he has managed to do what all these boy bands have wanted to do, and that is become another Elton John."

Lennon at 1 and Macca at 5.. something wrong there somewhere.

piscesx, Sunday, 4 August 2013 21:47 (nine years ago) link

noone likes macca even though he was the first to die...

Oasis never got in with macca if they had maybe things would have been different.

If Macca wore cool glasses then Liam would have loved him

the older songs that made the r1 best singles chart seem odd. I wonder if the public would still pick the same ones.

haha just noticed Mansun in the list. Now that wouldnt happen now

three years pass...

I'm trying to do this and initially found it impossible

But I decided to make it more of a personal list and it helped move things along quite quickly

58 tracks so far

The bands whose discography i know really well are the hardest

Also feel some weird pressure to choose the right track among the classics (beach boys, beatles, pink floyd, led zeppelin, etc)

F♯ A♯ (∞), Saturday, 25 March 2017 01:51 (five years ago) link

Also one track per band
