We hit the halfway point in Xfm’s mega-list of the best tunes of the Noughties. Take a look!

49 Bloc Party - ‘Flux’ Reportedly written for Kylie Minogue, Bloc Party released this one-off single in November 2007 and heralded a new, dancier direction for the band.
48 Oasis - ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’ The Gallaghers’ last number one was this track from “Don’t Believe The Truth”, which was accompained by a hilarious video featuring actor Rhys Ifans.

………about an artwork Saturday? I received a fantastic collage and that made me think if it would be a good idea to have a special day where you can showcase your music themed artwork. I would obviously choose a couple for that day which will be posted apart from other music stuff. If you’re good with photoshop or like to draw, or are creative with the camera, then it might be great if other music fanatics can see your artwork too. Would anyone be interested? I created a submissions page but thought I’d check with you lot first if it would be a good idea.
