NME top 100 Britpop Songs

NME’s Top 100 Britpop Songs playlist

Last week NME published their list of the top 100 Britpop songs. I decided to compile as many of them as I could into a Spotify playlist in ascending order. If you’re not familiar with Britpop now, you will be by the time you get to Pulp’s “Common People”, which holds to top spot according to the editors.  You’ve got many hours of listening in front of you. Thankfully, it’s mostly pleasant.

With genre mainstays PulpBlurOasisSuedeSupergrass and The Boo Radleys well represented in the list, the editors did their research and included many forgotten (at least by me) gems, as well as tracks I’d never heard before. It’s sure to provide some entertainment/enlightenment equally for those of  you who are new or under exposed to the genre, as well as those of you that consider yourselves connoisseurs. The playlist also serves as a reminder as to why those of us in the latter have been listening to some of these songs for the last 2 decades – solid writing and production have helped age many of these tunes with minimal wear.

If you like this type of sound and you live in Denver, be sure to come out to The Armoury tomorrow night (Saturday, May 18) because myself and Jake Ryan will be spinning some Britpop (and baggy and glam and indie and and and….)

Supergrass breaking up

Smoke ‘em while ya got ‘em: They started out as a band I loathed for no good reason and then I loved. I even had the honor to DJ for them when they played their last Denver gig at the Larimer Lounge. Well, now they get to say Adios without ever really putting out a bad album. (They have at least one really boring album in their catalog, but certainly not any bad ones.) Supergrass are going to play some farewell shows and then go supernova.

They don’t make ‘em like Supergrass anymore – but to be sure, they will again one day.
