Im working on my top 100 again, but in the meantime I can post what I think what my top 15 may look like. I've taken some liberties and included the Orbital, Way Out West and COTB tracks, even though they're not pure Trance music. And for Lady Blue I just had to combine as I cant choose.

1. FSOL - Papau New Guinea
2. Orbital - Belfast
2. Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (Sweeping Strings Remix)
3. Tiesto - Just Be
4. Above & Beyond - No One On Earth (Gabriel & Dresden)
5. Chicane - Offshore
6. Airwave - Lady Blue 1992 / Markus Schulz Remix
7. Way Out West - The Gift
8. Sasha - Xpander
9. Solarstone - Seven Cities (Transatlantis Remix)
10. Children Of The Bong - Life on Planet Earth
11. Armin - Shivers (Rising Star Remix)
12. L.S.G - Netherworld (Oliver Prime Remix)
13. Disco Citizens - Nagasaki Badger
14. Underworld - Born Slippy
15. Quadran - No Air (Main Mix)

Pretty obvious list really, lots of the big-time classics. But of course nothing when compared to Magdelayana's epic hall-of-fame Trance classic history top 10 (love it). Nostalgia driving all decisions, bar a few.

Sweeeeet. Have a few objections but saving them for later ;)

1. FSOL - Papau New Guinea not trance, but cool:rolleyes:
2. Orbital - Belfast cool, but not trance :rolleyes:
2. Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (Sweeping Strings Remix) The rush came.
3. Tiesto - Just Really? I gotta admit though, when I think of this and the little i remember in my head from the track without listening right now also have a thing for it, because I owned the album, and its part of my trance upbringing. The album is greatly produced, say what you want on the tracks themselves,cheese or not.
4. Above & Beyond - No One On Earth (Gabriel & Dresden) SAID NO ONE ON EARTH
5. Chicane - Offshore Cool, but trance?
6. Airwave - Lady Blue 1992 / Markus Schulz Remix Always loved those 3 intros
7. Way Out West - The Gift Cool, but trance?
8. Sasha - Xpander COOL, BUT IS IT REALLY TRANCE "trance" TRANCE? whos afraid of 1-2-8?
9. Solarstone - Seven Cities (Transatlantis Remix) Cool,BUT CAN THIS BE TRANCE IF YOU THINK OF IT? Its a sample within a sample within a faster southamerican samba disco beat
10. Children Of The Bong - Life on Planet Earth weed trance?
11. Armin - Shivers (Rising Star Remix) not cool
12. L.S.G - Netherworld (Oliver Prime Remix) cool choice, just delete text within the punctuation marks
13. Disco Citizens - Nagasaki Badger Cool, yeah cool.
14. Underworld - Born Slippy intro is trance, what about the rest?
15. Quadran - No Air (Main Mix) Cool, but is it really 130 bpm?

Oh cmon its not like a was bloody serious writing that.

LOL, yes excellent feedback, agree with all points ;). COTB is certainly 'Weed Trance' ha! I did state in the post for forgiveness on the off-genre tracks, but they have the Trance spirit soooooo....

Never really noted the BPM of Quadran and Xpander, your'e right they are low! 128 for Xpander is crazy actually as it feels so energetic emotionally. Offshore might be the ultimate Trance song ever made after Saltwater though cmon. 3rd place = Seven Cities (Disco Samba Remix).

Listen to Just Be again though. It has that classic Tiesto happy vs sad emotion, and its not trying to ram the emotion down the face. The feels are real.

yeah man, just be is a pretty solid album actually. thats why i wrote what I did.

Offshore the ultimate trance song? I agree its a classic so on and so fort but if I have to get nitpicky in all seriousness - is offshore textbook trance? though it was a ibiza breakbeat/chill piece. If you meant the DC mix i'll buy into alot more.

Sorry, I'm just so sick and tired of all this talk about genres and genre-wars. Who the fuck cares as long as you like it, call it trance, call it progressive trance, call it techno-trance I don't care. Probably read more into your post than initially intended from your side, my apologies.
