    We Dig Music - Series 3 Episode 7 - Best of 1990

    We Dig Music - Series 3 Episode 7 - Best of 1990

    It's our third anniversary! we've been putting out podcasts for 3 years and to celebrate we're doing one of our infamous Best Of episodes where we count down our 30 favourite songs of a particular year.

    This time we've decided to go back in time 30 years to 1990, a time where Milli Vanilli were busted for lip synching, Tim Berners Lee set out formal plans for the World Wide Web and an 8 year old Colin was still more interested in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles than music

    To explain how the voting works, we each picked our 10 favourite songs of the year, then in secret ranked our own out of 10 and the remaining songs from the other two's selections out of 20 (so the highest possible score would be 50 points if all three of us were unanimous on our favourite song and the lowest possible score would be 3 points). Ian's wife Lydia distributed the lists to each of us and then Colin's wife Helen added all the points up and sealed them in envelopes so we didn't find out the order until we were recording and all the reactions you hear are genuine.

    Now, admittedly, in parts we're a little bit brutal to some of the songs in the list as we're three seperate people with differing music tastes, but please remember that to be in this episode at all the songs have to have been in one of our top 10's of the year.

    Bands featured in this episode include (in alphabetical order, you'll find no spoilers here!) - Alice In Chains, Bell Biv DeVoe, The Black Crowes, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Cocteau Twins, Deee-Lite, Depeche Mode, Entombed, Extreme, Fugazi, The House Of Love, Jane's Addiction, The La's, LL Cool J, Loop, Ministry, Pantera, Pixies, Primal Scream, Public Enemy, Revolting Cocks, Sea Urchins, Sisters Of Mercy, Slayer, Sonic Youth, The Sundays, Teenage Fanclub, They Might Be Giants, Ultra Vivid Scene, & Vanilla Ice.

Awesome concept

I love the wacky concept of this podcast! Music lovers talking about music but they've found an innovative way to do it. The hosts are funny, charming, and know their stuff. Bravo!

Excellence

Great podcast where the hosts go through artists in alphabetical order and assess their work. The dynamic between the three hosts is funny and it's quite informative and well researched. Recommended.
