Who doesn't remember shimmying to Top of the Pops live acts? Suddenly our living rooms became recording studios as we all became air guitarists or sang into hairbrushes in a bid to keep up with the likes of The Beatles, T Rex, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Vanilla Ice or Britney Spears. Of course your memories will depend largely or which decade you were born in – but as Top of the Pops once said “We Came, We Saw, We Popped”. Whether your are 50 this year or have a child born the year Top of the Pops finished (2006), you are highly likely to have fond memories of it. It doesn't seem almost 8 years since Top of the Pops came to an end!
So in honour of possibly the most iconic TV programme ever, we have put together our very own Electricians top 40 Playlist. Naturally it had to feature songs specially selected by the electricians themselves, so again we took to the polls and asked electricians what song is on top of your playlists at work. We had a great response and of course every song mentioned had to reference the electrical industry in one way or another.
So without further ado, here we present our very own Electricians Top 40 Playlist – complete with videos so you can be in electrician heaven at work as you turn up the volume full blast.

We will be doing a follow up post in the next few week to narrow down this top 40 down to “the electricians most definitive song list of all time”. If you have a favourite on here be sure to give it a vote by adding a comment at the end of this post.
