1995 - "Insomnia" - Faithless

Club music exploded in a decade best remembered by the sheer diversity of genres. House, techno and euro dance played incessantly in the clubs.  

"Insomnia" is two tracks for the price of one: the tense atmosphere and paranoia of the first half contrasts with the pulsing sensory rush of the second. Strobe lights flash and joyous exhilaration flood back when the iconic synth arpeggio kicks in at 2:16. 

This is the quintessential club anthem of a decade filled with them.

Other favourites from 1995: 

"Machinehead" – Bush

"Wonderwall" – Oasis 

"Missing" – Everything But The Girl 

"Hand In My Pocket" – Alanis Morissette

"Born Slippy" – Underworld
