The 100 Greatest Songs of the Decade – The story so far

Last week the countdown reached number 50, the halfway point of a journey taking an alternative look at how the decade with no name has panned out musically. The full list is here.

Not everyone’s favourite is going to make it, which is kind of the point: the intention is to create some fresh perspective for listeners so they can get themselves a new set of bangers as the roaring twenties grows ever nearer. Here are some of the highlights to date, with – obviously – the rest of the songs to come.

#100 – John Grant – GMF


#83 Run The Jewels – Run The Jewels


#79 Jon Hopkins – Open Eye Signal


#63 Real Lies – North Circular


#50 Bibio – Phantom Brickworks III
