50 "MindKilla" - Gang Gang Dance - never thought Gang Gang Dance matching the utter-brilliance of their 2009 "House Jam" so quickly... Here's a phenomenal live version from 4AD Sessions I haven't shared here yet:

49 "Demon Lover" - Róisín Murphy feat. Wiley - La Murphy goes urban, just as well this never officially released song leaked otherwise perhaps we would have never had a chance to enjoy this pure dancefloor jewel as Róisín's 3rd solo album is looking less and less likely to be released at all... Grime superhero Wiley adds his bit too

48 "Melting Ice" - Ladytron - immaculate melody, intricate harmonies and esoteric production - the strongest track on Ladytron's 5th album

47 "Blown Minded" - Young Galaxy - possibly the most beautiful melody composed in 2011, possibly maybe...

46 "Lights On" - Katy B feat. Ms Dynamite - even though I wasn't as enthusiastic about Katy B's debut album as the rest of the blogosphere, I was instantly hooked by this anthem of a collaboration with Ms Dy-Na-Mi-Tee

45 "Want A Gang" - Bonjay - as the dancehall reinventing duo themselves tweeted back to me "not one that many have shouted about, but one of our personal favourites. . ." Top Tune!

44 "Lucid In the Sky" - Cubic Zirconia - last year's top 10 act (remember Slappy Josephine?) and their free download (via Scion A/V) which heralded their long anticipated debut album, it never actually made the final cut but remains one of my favourite tracks they recorded so far, Tiombe Lockheart gives a mesmerising vocal performance

43 "I Can Get Love" - Toro y Moi - get funky with Toro Y Moi's saturday night essential track taken from his precious "Freaking Out" EP

42 "N'wagezani My Love" - Zinja Hlungwani - South African electro piece that blew my mind at the beginning of the year, AMAZINGNESS!!!

41 "Within You" - Gus Gus
- we're already at number 41 and this is only the 1st out of 5 tunes by Icelandic veterans of electronica in my top 100, no surprise there as I have chosen "Arabian Horse" the best album of 2011 in my yesterday's ranking
