I like making these posts, I can’t speak for you though. I don’t know when exactly I should start a new “season” maybe every three months though every four months might be better. Oh well let’s kick off Season 2. If you’ve been following you’ll know the deal, if you haven’t I’m sure you’ll understand. Maybe, oh well.

25:The Tenper Trap – Want

24:Ellie Goulding – Explosions

23:The Temper Trap – Leaving the Heartbreak Hotel

22:Ellie Goulding – Hanging On

21: Ellie Goulding – Joy

 

Well it looks like Ellie Goulding was the artis du jour of this episode. Just so you know I don’t take my data from today’s list for the upcoming episodes. Rather I let the list evolve and change as it does.

Well here we are again one week later. If you’ve been following this series of posts by now should have seen Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4. If you haven’t seen them all I have linked to them, feel free to have a look or just jump straight into this part.

Prepare yourself for something that won’t be very exciting and only vaguely interesting.

5: Amanda Palmer – Leeds United (feat. the Born Again Horny Men of Edinburgh)

Prepare yourself for an Amanda Palmer spree.

4: Amanda Palmer – Strength Through Music (feat. Strindberg and Ben Folds)

Okay two songs is not quite a spree.

3: Amanda Palmer – Blake Says (feat. Zoë Keating and Ben Folds)

Three is heading into spree territory isn’t it?

2: Amanda Palmer – Runs in the Family (feat. Ben Folds)

Okay four is definitely spree territory.

1: M.I.A. – Bad Girls

I’ve been listening to this song so many times because I love it and it’s the only song I have from unusually long upcoming fourth album Matangi. Which is her name again, kinda.

It’s that time of the week again I think it might be getting exciting as next week will see the reveal of my top five songs, obviously the number one song being the most interesting. I’m enjoying creating these posts. I think I might start doing this on a regular basis, perhaps at the beginning of every season. One season is enough for the top 25 to have significant changes surely. If you want to look at Parts One, Two and Three feel free to do so. Well let’s get into it then.

Here comes the penultimate 5 songs in this series:

10: Air – Sexy Boy

Yet again some more Air.

9: Nicki Minaj – Va Va Voom

Now some Nicki Minaj pretty close to the top.

8: Death Cab for Cutie – Soul Meets Body

Finally a first appearance on this list.

7: Death Cab for Cutie – Steadier Footing

Ooh a second appearance and consecutive as well.

6: Amanda Palmer – (feat. the Via Interficere Choir of Nashville and Jack Palmer)

Amanda Palmer again.

Well that’s it for this week, next week will see the big reveal. <insert dramatic music for suspense here>

Well it’s Monday again so I guess that  means it’s time for another occasion for the world to judge my taste in music. I don’t  know what everyone else thinks but I think that this is going reasonably well. I’ve made it to the third part which is pretty impressive considering the last time I tried I didn’t make it past Part 1. Should I be linking to the previous two parts? I’m not really sure about that. But whatever they’re not too far away from this one.

Okay enough preamble here comes the meat. Wow that is so dodge.

15: Air – Sing Sang Sung (Black Moth Super Rainbow Remix)

 

14: Air – Playground Love

Okay looks like a bit of an Air spree in this list.

 

13: Adele – Skyfall

At last some change.

 

12: Nicki Minaj – I’m Legit (feat. Ciara)

And here comes the Minaj again

 

11: Amanda Palmer – I Will Follow You Into the Dark

Well this is the last of Part 3.

 

I’ve decided I will link to Part 1 and Part 2. The links being at the end of the post may be a bit silly but whatever. I promise I’ll link to them at the beginning of Part 4 which should be out next week.

See I did not lie about making a part 2. Since this has gone further than the original attempt I feel no need to include “Redux” in the title anymore which is reassuring. I will keep the format from the previous post and will be doing the next five in the list which may or may not have changed since I did Part 1.

So here goes:

20: Amanda Palmer – Another Year

Well this was unexpected. Didn’t know that this would shift up.

19: Air – Dark Messages

18: Air – Bathroom Girl

Looks like a bit of an Air fest is starting

17: Air – Alone in Kyoto

Yep definitely an Air spree.

16: Air – Surfing on a Rocket

The Air songs continue.

Well that was Part 2. I guess I’ll be doing Part 3 next Monday. Stay tuned for a further chance to judge me.

So I did one of these way back in 2011. This lonely Part 1 never had a Part 2 so I thought I would start afresh. This time instead of squeezing 12 songs into a single post I will draw it out and do 5 in a post. As with last I will try and find music videos as companions to the song titles. This time I better do more than one post. There is a chance that my top 25 might change before the next post. It will be interesting to see what changes may take place in the undefined period between this and the next post. Looking back I see that I started at No. 1 which makes absolutely no sense so I will start from 25 this time.

Anyway enough preamble and prepare to judge me.

25: Nicki Minaj – Beautiful Sinner

 

24: Nicki Minaj – Automatic

 

23: Nicki Minaj – Whip It

Um yeah yet another Nicki Minaj. Well I did invite you to judge me.

 

22: Nicki Minaj – Pound the Alarm

Ok I swear this is the last Nicki Minaj song in my top 25, I hope.

 

21: Amanda Palmer – Another Year

Yes finally some change.

That ends Part 1, stay tuned for Part 2. We swears on the Precious that we will do it.
