TOYAH@50 - 2008


We are delighted to reveal the results of a poll to find the Top 50 Toyah songs
as voted by diehard fans and toyahwillcox.com visitors in May 2008.

The top position went to Danced - a song which featured on Toyah’s debut EP,
Sheep Farming In Barnet, in 1979. It is closely followed by a track
considered to be another Toyah anthem – Ieya, which had two separate
single releases and was available on a myriad of 7”, 12”, picture disc
and coloured vinyl releases.

Both songs are still present in Toyah’s live set and one, if not both,
usually appears when Toyah performs a full concert with her band.

Two songs from Toyah’s latest album In The Court Of The Crimson Queen
feature inside the top 30 despite being only a year old and not available
to buy in hard copy when the poll was conducted.

Digitally available music doesn’t dampen the
love for a good song it would appear.

Fans voted for their top 10 Toyah tracks and, through a process
of careful scoring, the ultimate Toyah Top 50 was created
