770-The Kinks-Waterloo Sunset.
1967-Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 0.07 You have only to hear that guitar riff once and it’s implanted in your brain for life.
This is one of the most critically acclaimed songs of all time,it was written by Ray Davies.The lyrics describe someone on their own watching(or imagining)two lovers passing over a bridge,the Thames and Waterloo Station.In 2010 Ray Davies stated that the song was originally entitled ‘Liverpool Sunset’ as his favorite city is Liverpool and he was inspired by ‘Merseybeat,’ He didn’t want to clash with The Beatles who had just released Penny Lane so he called it Waterloo Sunset instead because Waterloo was a very significant place for him when he was a child.

The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
771-The Chainsmokers-Selfie.
2014-Number 11 single.
Best Bit-At 0.28 It’s not even summer ,why does the DJ keep on playing Summertime Sadness.
The Chainsmokers,composed of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall had noticed how the word ‘selfie’ had come into everyday use and wanted to take advantage of it.The uncredited talking female vocals are from Alexis Killacam who ends each verse by saying ‘Let me take a selfie.’The structure of the song has drawn comparisons to ‘Valley Girl’ a 1982 song by Frank Zappa.
