10. "Voodoo People" by The Prodigy
This song got me into electronic music in the way that I am into electronic music now, and so I'll always have an appreciation for it. I liked electronic music before this song entered my world, I guess, but it wasn't until I sat in a theater and watched the film Hackers (in which "Voodoo People" is featured prominently in two scenes), that I really, really got into electronic music. It was the furiously fun energy, and The Prodigy are still known for it today. It was at that moment than I began referring to the random disposable club fluff as 'techno' (which I've always felt gets thrown around in a derogatory manner by most people, anyway) and music that is artistically and meticulously pieced together with care and purpose (more than just 'so people can dance to it') as 'electronic music.' The Prodigy are still going strong, and still one of my favorite groups, and I went on to enjoy many other electronic artists in the years since, and it's all because the film Hackers had a kickass soundtrack.
