Is this whole thread actually just a ploy to get me to reveal my favourite number twos because I started a thread where I was reviewing them all but only got to number 78 before getting bored and starting something else? Thought not Anyway, just in case anyone's interested, here's the link...
And, since it was taking me so long to reveal them I guess I'll just do it here instead...
100 Barking Ramz 99 These Days Rudimental featuring Jess Glynn, Macklemore & Dan Caplen 98 Shake It Off Taylor Swift 97 Informer Snow 96 Streets Of London Ralph McTell 95 People Everyday Arrested Development 94 Gold Digger Kanye West featuring Jamie Foxx 93 By The Way Red Hot Chilli Peppers 92 Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town Kenny Rogers 91 Part Of The Union The Strawbs 90 Ain't Got No (I Got Life) Nina Simone 89 Delilah Tom Jones 88 Everybody In The Place The Prodigy 87 Teenage Dirtbag Wheatus 86 Love Of The Common People Paul Young 85 The Killing Of Georgie Parts 1 & 2 Rod Stewart 84 What's Up? 4 Non Blondes 83 Nessun Dorma Luciano Pavarotti 82 Love Really Hurts Without You Billy Ocean 81 Blue Velvet Bobby Vinton 80 Push It Salt 'N' Pepa 79 In The Air Tonight Phil Collins 78 Faith George Michael 77 Absolute Beginners David Bowie 76 Teenage Rampage The Sweet 75 Lazy Sunday The Small Faces 74 Happy Xmas (War Is Over) John Lennon, Yoko Ono & the Harlem Community Choir 73 Tubthumping Chumbawamba 72 Stop Crying Your Heart Out Oasis 71 Hound Dog Elvis Presley 70 The Air That I Breathe The Hollies 69 Torch Soft Cell 68 Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm Crash Test Dummies 67 Music Sounds Better With You Stardust 66 We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place The Animals 65 Justified And Ancient KLF featuring Tammy Wynette 64 Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy Kid Creole & the Coconuts 63 Ms. Jackson Outkast 62 Downtown Petula Clark 61 Electric Avenue Eddy Grant 60 Young Hearts Run Free Candi Staton 59 The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had To Swallow) The Jam 58 Magical Mystery Tour (EP) The Beatles 57 All The Small Things Blink 182 56 Love Spreads The Stone Roses 55 Song 2 Blur 54 The Streets Of Philadelphia Bruce Springsteen 53 You've Got Your Troubles The Fortunes 52 Last Train To Trancentral KLF 51 This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us Sparks 50 Cool For Cats Squeeze 49 Beat Dis Bomb The Bass 48 Golden Brown Stranglers 47 My Love Is Your Love Whitney Houston 46 Kids In America Kim Wilde 45 Take Me To Church Hosier 44 Tender Blur 43 Denis Blondie 42 Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) Eurythmics 41 Brown Sugar The Rolling Stones 40 Here Comes The Night Them 39 All Right Now Free 38 Take On Me A-Ha 37 Slight Return The Bluetones 36 In The Ghetto Elvis Presley 35 My Name Is Eminem 34 Vienna Ultravox 33 Everybody Wants To Rule The World Tears For Fears 32 All Day And All Of The Night The Kinks 31 Rocket Man Elton John 30 A Design For Life Manic Street Preachers 29 Sloop John B.

There's a slight problem here, which is that the song at 99 climbed a place to number one after I compiled the list. I guess I'd better nominate this instead...

By the way, it took me absolutely ages to find this thread because someone's stuck it at the top of the board, thought I was going mad and had imagined it. I always scroll straight past the ones that are fixed at the top to the threads which are in order of the most recently updated. I assumed the top ones were just the rules about being nice to each other
Here are the 10 from my shortlist of 110 that failed to make my Top 100:
Beach Boys - God Only Knows R Dean Taylor - Indiana Wants Me Who - My Generation Pat Boone - Love Letters In The Sand Nat 'King' Cole - When I Fall In Love John Leyton - Wild Wind Harry Belafonte - Banana Boat Song Bobby Goldsboro - Honey Frankie Laine - Blowing Wild Fleetwood Mac - Albatross (discounted as it also made #1)

I would expect my list to contain 1 song from the 1950s that I can think of, a lot of 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s songs, at least one 00s and possibly even one from 2018 itself though that one may not make the final cut.
