nichola, birmingham
well done to larrikin loveshame they split now though

olivia, germany
how lam is it that we are scientist chose their own songs?lostalone rock, so good choice by bruce ;)its strange how some choose so different kinds of songs though..

Bridget Dixon Truro
well done Bruce! Breed 77 are just Great!! Can't wait for the new single "Look at me know" should be no.1! Keep a look out for the guys on tour this year, you don't want to miss them!

Peter Southend
where is chasing cars?

ian pennells, salisbury
i can't believe no one has said any iron maiden songs "for the greater good of god" rocks and we are scientists have chosen their own tracks, that really isn't fair

Paul Millington Liverpool
Gotta take your hat off to McCabe from the Zutons for the LYONS & TIGERS shout. Why aren't they huge already?

Amber, Bristol
Well I dnt think theres enough dance or r 'n' b in the hits atm!!!

Hannah, Milton Keynes
Camille's album is amazing, can I suggest you all learn French cos the lyrics are as good as the music!

Wypoor, Bielsko - Biala, PL
Yeah - 'Young Folks': When I thinking about summer. CSS: When you thinking about making love. 'W.A.Y.U.H': When you thinking about dance and Nemone's announce... =) When you thinking about the best single of year: BBC 6 Music - was so much of this. Anyway, this year was a little strange - was a little less intresting music than usually.

YES NUMBER 73............PIGEONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sue G. - Basingstoke
Kudos to Bruce Dickenson for recognising the greatness of Breed77. 2006 was great for them, 2007 will be even better!

mel, chesterfield
where's take that patience???

Violet Casselden, Sutton, Surrey
Brucey! You legend! Breed 77 are such an amazing band, I am suprised that they're not as big as they should be. Open your ears people! Listen to the man! Breed 77 will rule the wooooooooooooooorld! Ahem.

Steve, Cardiff
This year I have loved listening on my new digital radio to Bruce Dickenson's show. I was lucky enough to catch Breed 77 on their outstanding UK tour this year. This and two amazing singles from an incredible album, surely they must have been the best UK band of 2006!

Surbiton, Surrey
Where is Knights of Cydonia by Muse?! Best song on the album!

Jim Pengraff London
I can't believe no one has mentioned Protokoll's track Moving Forward. It is simply AMAZING... my vote for single of the year!

Shaun Worrall, Midhurst
Good to see that Captain are up there. They are the best kept secret in your list. Its fresh and ego-less beautiful sound.

Fay and Emily, Essex
High school musical sound track rules and is better than any of the songs in the charts at the moment

Nicole, nyc off of wycombe tho
They were so many goodies this year as there is every year. I love nearly all of the songs on the 6music singles list. I love WAS for choosing 3 of their own as their top 3-well played lol.

Sean, Ireland
Director - reconnect check it out, tis good

Z, London
Well done to Tom R for picking out Blessed Night by Howling Bells. My favourite single this year

Dave O'Neill, Dublin
Best song of the year so far isn't on the list... The Fratellis' Whistle For The Choir!

sam brighton
arctic monkeys and muse are the bands of the year no question

Luke, Oxford
Muse yes but not having knights of cydonia? Also wheres Evanescence- Call Me When Your Sober? Must agree that Breed77 are taking the world by storm this year!

nicla from italy
great voice...simply joan as police woman

adrian pisarello, gibraltar
breed 77 rules, your are the man bruce. i belive this lads deserve more credit for their work.

Phil, Liverpool
Lyons And Tigers!!!!!!! Better than Zutons!!

Mike, Birmingham.
1 - Joan As Police Woman - The Ride. 2 - Joan As Police Woman - Eternal Flame. 3 - Joan As Police Woman - Christobel. 4 - Guillemots - Made Up Love Song #43. 5 - Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancin'.

bo yatao from nanchang city,China
intereting and excellent .thanks for presenting ussuch a good story.

I LOVE that W.A.S. named three of their own songs. They're too awesome. I'd have to say I agree.

Ruth /Birmingham
So pleased to see Camille in some lists, hers is a fantastic album

Peppermintpatti - Cardiff
Can't decide between: The Gap - you say Party we say die The Girl who was too beautiful - The Hot Puppies Memorize the city - The Organ The Orange Shop - Das Wanderlust Standing in the Way of Control - Gossip Lips and Hips - manic Cough Painting New York on my shoes - Poppy and the jezebels Ban the gin - VEG Club Let's Make Love - CSS would have been on if it hadn't been as overplayed! You've killed it!

bob, kilbride N Ireland
Look forward to 6music costing me another fortune next year in music I generally won't hear anywhere else!

Janice Elson, Hatherleigh, Devon
Bruce Dickinson is and always will be the greatest ever as he is one of the selected genius people to see that Breed77 are an amazing band and Blind is definitely the best single of the year quickly followed by Alive by the same band
