Perhaps a Venetian Snares or Coil tune in there? I'd say also Frontier Psychiatrist by The Avalanches, definitely more significant than Since I Left You

"Frontier Psychiatrist" is a noteworthy song and probably nearly as popular as "Since I Left You," but the latter actually has a bit more acclaim, so it's the safer bet to go with.

What Venetian Snares and Coil tunes did you have in mind?

Also, the list I initially posted was just a sample. No doubt "Frontier Psychiatrist" will be there, along with other Daft Punk and Lady Gaga songs and other songs by other artists.

All,

I've updated the list. As a reminder, not all of these songs will make the list. Note that the latest additions are boldfaced. Feel free to make any more suggestions.

Lookin' good, Jeff. Nice to see you're considering X-Press 2's "Lazy." I've been jamming out to that one lately, though I had forgotten to suggest it earlier. Great tune.

For Autechre, might I suggest "Gantz Graf," as it's among their most popular songs; it was one of their few singles, and it had an official accompanying music video -- which was visually groundbreaking and attracted to Autechre the most attention they had received since their hey-day in the '90s. It seems like it would be a better candidate than "Pen Expers," since I'm not sure which of the criteria that particular song excels in.

Zach,

"Pen Expers" is actually one of their most popular songs of the last decade and is found on an album (Confield) which is considered (give or take) one of the greatest of the past decade. That song in particular is highlighted by fans and critics alike. Mainstream sources that attest to the strength of "Pen Expers" are Allmusic, Pitchfork, Last.FM, Rate Your Music, and others.

Again, there is no limit to the amount of songs an artist can have in the list above. For example, I could have added more Aphex Twin and Lady Gaga songs, but my primary concern was to make sure I covered all the important bases of the dance/electronic music spectrum this past decade.

Anyways, "Gantz Graf" is a great suggestion, and it will be added shortly along with some other songs by other artists, including some more drum & bass and techno songs.

For Coil probably Fire of the Mind, or perhaps Tattooed Man. For Venetian Snares definitely Szamar Madar, though Ongyilkos Vasarnap makes an interesting addition as well
