Countdown to ecstasy 80-61

Another shameless promotion of my parallel blog Countdown to Ecstasy: my choice of 100 best songs (pop, rock, and ballads) from five decades - with the constriction of maximum one song per act. The countdown has now reached #61 and here are the latest 20 posted (for descriptions and YouTube links see the blog itself):

61. Hallelujah (Jeff Buckley)
62. L'adolescente (Yves Duteil and Jeanne Moreau)
63. Torn (Natalie Imbruglia)
64. Michele (Gerard Lenorman)
65. Oh yeah (Roxy Music)
66. The ministry of lost souls (Dream Theater)
67. Blinded by the light (Manfred Mann's Earth Band)
68. Traeume (Francoise Hardy)
69. Sebastian (Cockney Rebel)
70. Second life syndrome (Riverside)
71. Kristallnaach (BAP)
72. Miss Sarajevo (Passengers)
73. Time of the season (Zombies)
74. Stimmen im Wind (Juliane Werding)
75. She's leaving home (Beatles)
76. Wake me up when September ends (Green Day)
77. Andorra (Colin Blunstone)
78. Tian tang (Tenggeer)
79. They dance alone (Sting)
80. Goodnight Saigon (Billy Joel)

A blend that is rather representative for my general taste: a mixture of the well-known and the rarities, songs in various languages, and ranging from ballads to heavy rock. I will continue to give a regular update in this blog - and you can follow the progress in the right hand column as well.
