House is House. It's also love
8Daft Punk
Alive 2007

Closes the book on Daft Punk, and on the French House that they helped build.
9New Radicals
Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too

"You Get What You Give"
It's somehow not corny or hammy, and somehow one of the most hopeful songs ever.
10Tears for Fears
Songs from the Big Chair

"Head Over Heels"
Best pop album of the 80s? Maybe
11Fela Kuti

Let loose. Do a jig.
12Talking Heads
Remain in Light

David Byrne and co. channel Fela Kuti.

Don't sleep on this era of Talk Talk.

This would come off as kitsch if it wasn't so darn charming.

Good lord, this is heavenly.
19David Bowie
Let's Dance

"Let's Dance"
Not the best era of Bowie, but damn what a catchy song.
20Camp Lo
Uptown Saturday Night

"Luchini (AKA This is It)"
Probably the best beat ever, what else can one say.
21The Avalanches
Since I Left You

"Frontier Psychiatrist"
Well the whole album works obviously, but dude, this is like plunderphonic's manifesto.
22Global Communication

One of the best ambient tracks EVER MADE, maybe the best. Piloerections over my entire body when that beat drops
23Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Best first track of an artist's first album, except for The Doors maybe.
Bye Bye Gridlock Traffic

This song is the reason why my plug name is zylophone.
Orbital 2

Best use of sampled vocals in a techno track ever.
26The Orb
Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld

"Fluffy Little Clouds"
Kinda like Orbital but not as good.
27Steve Reich
Different Trains/Electric Counterpoint

"Electric Counterpoint I-III"
The b-side is the real star here, and it was sampled in Fluffy Little Clouds, which is one of the reasons that tracks is so damn good.

Blew the lid of my preconceived notions of what musicians could do clean off.
29The Field
From Here We Go Sublime

"Everday" ("Everyday"?)

31Ryo Fukui

"Early Summer"
Refer to the soundoff.
Gantz Graf

Damn, don't hurt em.

This track shoud be at least as long as Quadrant Dub II, shame it's one of their shortest tracks.
34Boards of Canada
Old Tunes Vol. 2

"Kiteracer 2"
One of their most beautiful tracks. Compilation is better than MHtRTC and Geogaddi btw.

"Luv (sic.) pt 2"
Possibly my fav beat of his, but lord knows he has so many.

The 21st century's pop genius.

I only have maple in my house, I wish I knew some black people.
