Previously: My top 100 tracks 1990-99 Pt.01a: 200 to 181
The Ideal Crash
An impossibly sad song, a slow, minimalist track that lyrically deals with a man confessing to the titular character his crime. dEUS have never come close to the naked emotions of this track since, or to that matter before it, either, and it's such an affecting track that I can only listen to this once in a while.
The Dandy Warhols
Every Day Should Be A Holiday
...The Dandy Warhols Come Down
Way back before they were soundtracking Vodafone adverts, this band of American slackers were writing wonderful summer pop songs like this, psychedelic electro-pop that hooked me from the first moment I heard it (and I ended up buying the album on import months before it was eventually released over here).
