DJ and radio presenter Kennedy Taylor takes us through 10 of the greatest songs ever made, from Kendrick Lamar to Armand Van Helden.

"Unforgettable" by French Montana, Swae Lee

The production, the vocals, the small use of autotune and the hook... it's just perfection! French's opening line is everything! It never get's old. If you don't agree, listen back again and deep it.

"On & On" by Erykah Badu

This song is the epitome of cool, the first few beats are instantly recognisable and the "Oh my my my" bit just hits my soul. There never has and never will be another Erykah Badu. The whole 'Baduizm' album is sensational.

"Still Tippin'" by Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Slim Thug

This song defines a whole era of music in four minutes. It's that real 2000's dirty south hip-hop movement. It's also Mike Jones' debut, which makes it even better and is honestly one of the hardest beats ever made; you could take the vocal off and still go crazy. The video, the cars, the fashion... it's just iconic.

"Never Too Much" by Luther Vandross

I know people say, 'They don't make 'em like this anymore', but they actually don't! Luther is one of the best voices to ever make music; the lyrics are perfection and if he was a rapper now, he would be the best without a doubt! No matter what mood you're in, it picks you up and I haven't even mentioned the infamous intro yet.

"Insomnia" by Faithless

This has to be one of the best electronic productions in the history of music. I'd be surprised if anyone on earth could hear this drop and not get goosebumps. If it was a film it would be a thriller. It takes you on a journey and then spits you back out.

"You Don't Know My Name" by Alicia Keys

This would be my lip sync battle tune. Alicia really brought that old school soul/R&B to the present day. I can never hear and skip it! I've played it in a club setting and it still goes off!

"Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" by Kendrick Lamar

I can't even deal with how much I adore this song. I have so many memories attached to it. You can party, relax or workout to it. When I'm a bit anxious and want something to soothe me, Kendrick has that effect on me!

"Simon Says" by Pharoahe Monch

If I was a boxer, this would be my entrance song. The beat is disgusting. I always saw Pharoahe Monch as a boundary pusher, someone who tried new things without worrying about other peoples opinions and this song really reflects that.

"Shook Ones, Pt.II" by Mobb Deep

If someone had never heard hip-hop before, I'd probably start them off with this; the lyrics are so calm but so venomous, the beat again is just ridiculous and it oozes that New York sauce you can't even attempt to copy.

"You Don't Even Know Me" by Armand Van Helden, Duane Harden

Again, this defines a whole era of music. It's a 90s house classic, and came at a time where people were really encouraging each other to explore their identity and to be themselves. The lyrics are so uplifting and I don't think the day will ever come where this song ages.
