Here it is... Top 100 countdown starts right here, right now:

100 - LES CHRYSANTHÈMES - Moscow Grooves Institute, O.L.F. & Olga Rojdestvenskaya - have I told you about "the melodies from heaven" yet? Well this is one of those "inescapable" compositions, sung in Russian with goosebumps-causing key changes,

99 - NIE PATRZYSZ - Kayah - elegant and intricate almost 8 minutes long opening track of the best album of the decade in my homeland - Poland, JAKA JA KAYAH...

98 - LOVELY HEAD - Goldfrapp - the very first single by Goldfrapp still magnetises the audiences at any of their live shows, Alison's otherworldly vocal performance

97 - PYRAMID SONG - Radiohead

96 - LET ME KNOW - Róisín Murphy

95 - MOODY FEELS GOOD - Spektrum - a London based gritty disco punk collective with a fashion icon Lola Olafisoye behind the microphone, beautifully crafted sonic experience straight from their second LP: "Fun At The Gymkhana Club"

94 - IT'S ALL TRUE - Tracey Thorn

93 - BACK TO BLACK - Amy Winehouse

92 - DON'T STOP THE MUSIC - Rihanna - similarly 2 Britney's TOXIC, I have included this track against my own will as I find Miss Rihanna extremely average, generic and predictable, DON'T STOP THE MUSIC though well top class pop moment, and that clever Michael Jackson sample, I just can't say a bad word about it...

91 - ALL THAT IS THIRST - Pati Yang - dreamy trip-hoppy sounds by one of Poland's most underrated songwriters, gorgeous tune accompanied by this sublime and meticulous video:
