It interested me too - no idea why, just a couple of songs. I'm not sure 1986's Hooky would've liked being embraced. Crap film though - makes Roger Hargreaves read like Sylvia Plath (sorry, that was disrespectful to Roger Hargreaves). Turmoil yes - 'do I REALLY wanna bonk him?' Teens have it hard, in both senses.
Had a wanking competition. I won hands down.

Listening to NO without the sleeve / vinyl experience etc, I was quite disappointed. Peter Savile is part of the cult (I've been called that).
There was a great review of Mel B's solo ''''''''''LP'''''''''': There are two fabulous things on this album. Sadly, they're both on the cover. (It is a jocular reference to tits, which are popular with many males.)
A lot of NO LPs end on a mellow note - Brotherhood, Technique, even One True Cash-in.

I shall not rise to that. It would be disrespectful to the Other Mel.
New Order's records are like the Spice Girls'. The covers are so awesome you don't mind if the music's crap.

Oh jesus what a pointless load of bollocks. The worse part of it is that once we've all seen whether number one goes to True Faith or Blue Monday (two songs even the band are so bored of they have to play rearranged versions just to keep themselves from nodding off) is that it'll probably inspire another Greatest Hits album. Probably entitled 'You Voted For It So We Gave It To You Now Give Us The Money Then Fuck Right Off Again'.

Well it's just a bit of fun for music fans. Feel free to ignore.

So cynical! They won't do that because they're too busy working on deluxe box sets of the Factory albums with lots of pointless booklets and re-created gig flyers which they're gona flog at £60-£80 a pop. Innit!


Voting has closed now, so I guess we see the resuts soon. Unless the No 1 is something unexpected, i think the interesting thing will be to see if there are any surprises in the top 20. I quite liked looking at the other lists, perhaps because I'm more of a casual fan of the others. Being on this forum means we are probably more familiar with NO's stuff than most people.

It appears they list the number of votes for each track, which is good. It means it'll be easy to agrregate the votes for tracks listed as different releases (which I wouldn't have done). In other words, I will be tempted to add up the votes for each of these tracks and treat them as one track:


Blue Monday
The Beach
Beach buggy
bm '88
bm '95

bizarre love triangle
bizarre dub triangle

confusion
confused beats
confused instrumental

sub culture
dub vulture

fine time
fine line
MTO

Perfect Kiss
kiss of death
perfect pit

run
run2

state of the nation
shame of the nation

shellshock
shellcock

temptation
temptation 98

Touched by the hand of god
Touched by the hand of dub

true faith
true faith 94
true dub

586
video 586 (hmm, this one might be debatable)

world
price of dub

I really hope so. I’d gladly pay that sort of price range if the product is good.
Demos, outtakes, rarities and video material. Especially if the Movement boxset has that Hurrah’s video footage. Who knows - maybe The Beach Club audio exists. We can but dream.


I think I’d split Video 586 and 586. I’ve always considered them separate. Video 586 is the sprawling soundscape that gave rise to 586 and Blue Monday, IMO.
MTO I’d separate too.

Good idea listing these though. Kind of hope that, when the vote’s cast, the website do something similar.
