    64) Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson - Song for Bobby Smith

    Ive always liked these songs that are indirectly dedicated to other people it happens alot in jazz

    Gil wasnt angry and seething at the system all the time and when he wasnt he could put out something affecting like this

    66) Roc Marciano - Scarface Nigga

    One of the hardest tracks in recent memory, gallows humour, refferences to old basketball players like crack was still on the street, a flow that snakes around the track until he gets bored with it

    It boggles my mind that it took people so long to realise there was alot of comedy in the music of Marci but then again same thing with Prodigy "my flow hard to mimick like Yiddish" lol

    Headphone music at its finest, the strings on this for me signify that really bad things are bout to happen and even worse things will happen as a result and them drums might aswell be a funeral march

    its all about the mood when i listen to shit like this

    68) 67 - Bound 4 da reload

    67 have made some good tunes but not sure if they made one that grabbed me like this its like that Oxbow track in that it just grabs you and doesnt let go until the end of the tune, just tension all around

    69) Miles Davis - He Loved him Madly

    i love all 32 minutes of this, a requiem for a true genius, the sound of a kingdom immediatly reacting to the news that a great monarch has fallen

    normally tribute songs are overblown turgid things that feel they have to fill up all the space this is the complete opposite of that like sitting in a cave with no headlamp

    How did you discover all this music? you and third both have what seem to me to be very decentred, Internet lists. Cos you didn't depend those same narrow filters pre internet people did (radio, top of the pops, specialist magazines, DJs)

    I mean, I guess there are still filters, but different ones (file sharing sites, blogs, online magazines like pitchfork etc, dissensus and other forums)

    WebE, that is amazing, i'm curious what was your route into this track, how did you come accross it, what musical pathways/artists/writing led you to it? Was it reading Baudelaire or some other musics leading to it? Similar question to Luke's (from a pre internet person).

    Some of it is due to the fact that in secondary school i had an avant-garde jazz musician as one of the teachers and when he saw me making a note of Led Bib down on a piece of paper he was genuinly surprised some of it is to do with me digging through the deepest darkest blogspots finding shit as a result of said teacher

    and as for the Ruth White track youll be shocked to hear this but i first heard this in a weird indie RPG called Space Funeral(its how i also came across Les Rallies Denudes) made by the Irish developer thecatamites , i do really like all that bonkers early 60s messing with analog synths stuff like the Elsa Marie composition third posted on his list

    "A white hippie band from the Pacific Northwest captured the spirit of a Texas chain gang, perfectly recreating the haunted suffering in their own psychedelic style, while other covers of the song don't even come close." - ComradeCrusty

    73) Melvins - Sacrifice

    A cover of one of the previous bands on this list(Flipper) but done in a way that makes it feel barren and completly oppresive
