Radio 2 Top 2000In the Netherlands, the public station Radio 2 has a very popular yearly countdown (from Christmas Day until New Year's Eve) of the 2000 best songs. Pink Floyd features heavily in the latest countdown, as they have done in previous years, with no less than eleven songs included, of which three are in the top 10:

  • No. 6: Wish You Were Here
  • No. 8: Comfortably Numb
  • No. 10: Shine On You Crazy Diamond
  • No. 48: Another Brick In The Wall
  • No. 180: Echoes
  • No. 212: Time
  • No. 252: The Great Gig In The Sky
  • No. 271: Money
  • No. 522: One Of These Days
  • No. 1078: See Emily Play
  • No. 1157: Arnold Layne

The chart itself is topped by Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen), Hotel California (The Eagles), and Stairway To Heaven (Led Zeppelin). Our thanks to Teun Thonissen and Engelbert for their help with this information.

To reinforce the popularity of such lists in The Netherlands, Arrow Rock have also done their year-end all time best-of. No less than fifteen feature in their top 500, along with one of David Gilmour's solo pieces:

  • No. 3: Comfortably Numb
  • No. 11: Shine On You Crazy Diamond
  • No. 18: Wish You Were Here
  • No. 26: Echoes
  • No. 43: Time
  • No. 79: Another Brick In The Wall
  • No. 112: Money
  • No. 200: Us And Them
  • No. 228: The Great Gig In The Sky
  • No. 233: One Of These Days
  • No. 263: Brain Damage/Eclipse
  • No. 271: Hey You
  • No. 357: Have A Cigar
  • No. 414: Mother
  • No. 465: On An Island

Our thanks to Roger Little for letting us know about this listener-voted chart of favourites.
