We Dig Music – Series 5 Episode 10 – Best of 2006

Play episode

We’re back to our time travel again this month, heading back to 2006 where we’ll be exploring our favourite songs from the year Pluto had it’s planetary status cruelly ripped from it’s icy mountains. We discuss Pop, Folk, Post-Metal, Emo, & Whatever the hell Scott Walker was doing at that point.

We’ve each chosen our 10 favourite songs of the year and sent them over to Colin’s wife Helen, who put the playlists together and distributed them so we were each given a playlist of the 20 songs from the other two hosts, along with our own 10. We then ranked the playlists in order of preference and sent them back to Helen, who totalled up the points and worked out the order.She also joined us on the episode to read out the countdown, which we found out as we recorded so all reactions are genuine.

Now, admittedly, in parts we’re a little bit brutal to some of the songs in the list as we’re three separate 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 that year.

Bands featured in this episode include (In alphabetical order, no spoilers here!) – The Aliens, Lily Allen, Brand New, Camera Obscura, Jarvis Cocker, Cult Of Luna, Devin Townsend Band, The Dresden Dolls, Espers, The Flaming Lips, The Hold Steady, Isis, Kayo Dot, The Knife, LCD Soundsystem, Jenny Lewis, Mogwai, Satyricon, Snow Patrol (Ft. Martha Wainwright), Pernice Brothers, The Pipettes, Damien Rice, Sonic Youth, Srapping Young Lad, Justin Timberlake, The Twilight Singers, Scott Walker, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Yo La Tengo, & Thom Yorke

The playlist of 20 songs from the other two hosts was scored as usual, our favourite song got 20 points, counting down incrementally to our least favourite which got 1 point. The scoring of our own list of 10 is now slightly more complicated in order to give a truer level of points to our own favourites. So rather than them only being able to score as many points as our 10th favourite in the other list, the points in our own list were distributed as follows –

1st place – 20 points
2nd place – 18 points
3rd place – 16 points
4th place – 14 points
5th place – 12 points
6th place – 9 points
7th place – 7 points
8th place – 5 points
9th place – 3 points
10th place -1 point

Hosts – Ian Clarke, Colin Jackson-Brown & Tracey B
Guest starring Helen Jackson-Brown.
Playlist compiling/distributing – Lydia Clarke
