    I slagged Warface hard when it came out and it came on recently and I was actually not too upset with it. Weird.

    Horrible, bought it without listening beforehand and gave it to a 'friend' immediately.

    Chase & Status - Take me away
    Chase & Status - Hurt you

    Vocals really grate on me far too 'epic', thought they were ace at the time though

    I concur on those mid-era C&S tunes. Still need Bionics, though.

    Whoa... Disagree with this one. I still go off as soon as I hear Snorkel coming on.

    Classic in my opinion.

    I never liked that tune tbh. S.P.Y's remix on the other hand, that one I rinse very often.

    Take me away was my most rinsed out tune of 2009...i still love it not for the vocal but for the woawoawoawoawoaw, proper feel-good track, andy c's version is best the original version before release without so much vocal...

    Mr Happy is def up there and while its not very old when Marka was being played before release i was all over it but now......no. Unless its double dropped with something to make it sound good!

    Im tempted to say duppy man but it will be a bit controversial wont it??

    but I wont, thinking its prob the only c and s tune thats any good

    I still dont understand why everyone went nuts for dj Guv - water technique
