Top 10 Brit Pop Tracks (Bar Oasis)

Post by CloudBurst on Wed Jan 05, 2011 6:27 am

If you could come up with your top 10 Brit Pop tracks what would they be? Minus Oasis of course (otherwise that would take up half my list!!) and only one song per artist.

1. The Verve - Sonnet
2. Manics - Design For Life
3. Blur - Beetlebum
4. Cast - Walkaway
5. Suede - Beautiful Ones
6. Mansun - Wide Open Space
7. Travis - U16 Girls
8. Boo Radleys - Wake Up Boo!
9. Longpigs - She Said
10. Monaco - What Do You Want From Me

1. Pulp - Common People
2 Suede - The Drowners
3. Blur - This Is A Low
4 Elastica -Connection
5. Mansun - Stripper Vicar
6. Ash- Girl From Mars
7. Bluetones - Slight Return
8. Supergrass - Sun Hits The Sky
9. Gene - Be My Light Be My Guide
10. Sleeper - Inbetweener

I havent included any Verve as I really dont see them as a Britpop band they were formed in 1990 and intially described as shoegazing alongside MBV and Ride, they got lumped in with both Madchester AND Britpop and were neither

Tough Challenge!

Like Scruff I'm gonna rule out the Verve as not being Brit Pop, and similarly The Manic Street Preachers (appeared in the early 90s) and Blur post 1997 as they were no longer Brit Pop then

1. Yes - McAlmont/ Butler
2. Sorted for Es and Wizz - Pulp
3. Staying Out for the Summer - Dodgy
4. Wake up Boo! - Boo Radleys
5. Lenny - Supergrass
6. Girl from Mars - Ash
7. Wide Open Space - Mansun
8. She Said - Longpigs
9. Slight Return - The Bluetones
10. London Can You Wait? - Gene

Interesting how many repeat choices there are here!

tbh I've never been a big fan of Ash beyond that one song.

but a lot of bands are remembered in years to come for having one timeless classic single and "girl from mars" is theirs

1977 was a great album, and the A Life less Ordinary song was fantastic. Had some great B-Sides too. Their Best of is a good place to start, a singles band though, but certainly not a one hit wonder.

I have their best of, never listen to it and i skip when they come up on shuffle. I do, however, like the album meltdown which seems to be one of their least known. Anyone else heard it?
