(Drumroll, flourish of lights): It's… THE ALL–NEW TOP B TOP 40 2005

You came, you saw, you voted. And then we played 'em back-to-back in what can only be described as one of the most off-the-hook nights this Union's seen in years. Alright!

[Of course, no rundown of this list would be complete without a smug boast claiming a major victory for including a more diverse range of music at Union events with the shock emergence of R.E.M. at number 11. I think this just goes to prove that there is a huge untapped resource of songs out there that may not have previously been considered "Top B Music" but which may just have opened the floodgates…]

Anyway, that Top 40 countdown in full –

40) Electric Six – "Gay Bar"
39) Chumbawamba – "Tubthumping"
38) Jet – "Are You Gonna Be My Girl"
37) No Doubt – "Just a Girl"
36) Red Hot Chili Peppers – "By the Way"
35) Bowling For Soup – "Girl All the Bad Guys Want"
34) Busted – "Year 3000"
33) Guns'n'Roses – "Paradise City"
32) Reef – "Place Your Hands"
31) Razorlight – "Golden Touch"
30) Eric Prydz – "Call On Me"
29) Basement Jaxx – "Oh My Gosh"
28) McFly – "Obviously"
27) The Beatles – "Twist & Shout"
26) Girls Aloud – "Love Machine"
25) Backstreet Boys – "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)"
24) Gorillaz – "Feel Good Inc."
23) Prodigy – "Out of Space"
22) Tony Christie – "(Is This the Way to) Amarillo?"
21) The Wannadies – "You & Me Song"
20) Ocean Colour Scene – "The Day We Caught the Train"
19) Hanson – "MmmBop!"
18) Darude – "Sandstorm"
17) The Futureheads – "Hounds of Love"
16) Goldfinger – "99 Red Balloons"
15) Phantom Planet – "California"
14) Feeder – "Buck Rogers"
13) Coldplay – "Yellow"
12) Team America OST – "America, Fuck Yeah"
11) R.E.M. – "Losing My Religion"
10) Green Day – "American Idiot"
9) Armand Van Helden – "My, My, My"
8) Muse – "Plug In Baby"
7) Britney Spears – "Toxic"
6) N-Trance – "Set You Free"
5) Franz Ferdinand – "Take Me Out"
4) Oasis – "Don't Look Back In Anger"
3) Faithless – "Insomnia"
2) Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody"
1) The Killers – "Mr. Brightside"

And the MIDNIGHT POUNDER OF POUNDERS 04-05? Chesney be damned – that'd be "Somebody Told Me" by The Killers…

W.S.A.F. post-Fashion Show Party tonight in The Cooler from 10pm-2am, then the End of Term Beach Party from 9pm-3am on Friday. Otherwise, Baby B over the summer or I'll see you next year, kids!

  1. Just want to say again how amazing last night was. I've never seen so many people dancing at the same time. Even the seated area in Cholo was bouncing by 11. What a great way to start the last week of the year. And you guys seemed to enjoy it just a little bit too.

    Last night i tried but i couldn't sleep
    Thoughts of you were in my head
    I was lonely and i needed you next to me
    Life is harder since you left
    I never meant to do you wrong
    And now all is said and done
    I hope you won't be gone too long/ No

    Where do i go
    What do i do
    I can't deny i still feel something
    And girl, i wish you could say you feel the same
    You've broken the bond
    I gotta move on
    But how do i end this lonely feeling?
    You've gone, I'm here, alone
    I guess it's time to grow

    I try to speak, but my words never catch the air
    Like you never knew i was there
    Take me back to the days when you really cared
    Can we make love re-appear?
    I can't go on the roads too long
    And now all is said and done
    I can't go forward if my heart's still where i'm coming from

    Crying time is over
    I know i can't control her feelings
    If she won't return, then i guess i'll be a man
    and move on

    Time to grow And move on
    Make life better than it was before
    Time to grow and move on
    Make love better than i did before

    Though you've gone And i'm here, alone
    I guess it's time to grow

  8. well Carter, I hope you're looking suitably smug over all this.

    Are you coming to the pub later?

    28 Jun 2005, 15:52

  9. Carter

    Yes you beast, yes indeed.

    Me? Smug? Never. Apart from at the event I DJ-ed last night when some bird wandered over and said "A bit later on, can we have some REM?"

    Can you have some REM, love? IS THE POPE AN EX-NAZI?!

  16. Carter

    Well indeed, I have been stricken with some mystery ailment which may be food poisoning but is more likely chronic dehydration or exhaustion.

    Not to worry though, it happens at this time pretty much every year and it's always funny to watch my spindly frame finally pack up and wither away, crying "Haha! Thought you could abuse me? Think again, weedy man!

  17. Joselito
