It’s been a particularly busy time for the God is in the TV team as we’ve been celebrating the sites 20th anniversary, which means A LOT of reflecting on the last twenty years has been done. Anyway, the content has been flowing! 

I’m notorious for my love of a good list, so I was delighted when Bill had the idea for the team to share their favourite twenty songs of the last twenty years. Of course, that was before I realised what an utterly impossible task it was for a group of music enthusiasts.

I decided to use an approach similar to if I was on a gameshow, with only my first answer being accepted, so these are the first twenty tracks that popped into my head. After the first track, they’re in no particular order – purely because I can’t handle the stress. 

Johnny Marr – Hi Hello

James – All I’m Saying 

Black Kids – I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You

Orson – No Tomorrow

The Wombats – Techno Fan

Self Esteem – You Forever

Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know

Sum 41 – Pieces

The Vaccines – Post Break-Up Sex

Band of Horses – Is There a Ghost

Foals – Cassius

Fountains Of Wayne – Someone To Love

Angels & Airwaves – The Adventure

Bloc Party – Flux

Mystery Jets – Two Doors Down

Modest Mouse – Dashboard

James Dean Bradfield – Still a Long Way to Go

All American Rejects – Fast & Slow

Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks

Blondie – Long Time
