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

Its kinda strange to see Aerosmith topping a UK commercial radio poll though. I honestly would not expect that.

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."

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

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

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)

Also one track per band
