    None of mine in there - might on a different day have chosen Simon & Garfunkel or The Pogues, but probably not

    2 noms here. Neither in my top 10.

    Just realised how awful a writer I can be when I'm in a rush.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    Zip it, it's a good write-up. The other two you contributed are probably better, but this is a good one.

    Surprised to see Bob Marley so low. Nice write-up guys, although Sparks was way too long. I am sure you put in the same level of dedication to your Physics essays. :P.

    Completely forgot about some of the bands here like Kasabian or the Eagles.

    If you think that was long then I suggest skipping some later on. I think it's fine in length anyway FTR

    Agreed you won't like mine at all Agent - I actually shortened one of mine after submitting it - but it is still longer than Spark's.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Haha, I thought mine were going to be excessive since I got near the 250 word limit.

    I could have kept ranting about my favourite bands for pages dammit.

    Prepare for novel length write ups for the two I'm doing atm.

    Haha I was just reading it again and came across a sentence which made absolutely no sense at all.

    Had quite a lot of those including Bob Marley, Simon and Garfunkel and Arcade Fire.

    Pogues probably in my top 5 somewhere but I put solo artists in so Corrin had to sort of them all out.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Solid start so far. I had Kasabian in 21st position. Simon and Garfunkel were close to making it but I felt as though I don't know enough songs by them to include them. I'll have to do some listening - any recommendations?

    Nice writes up too, how far did everything get before realising that Brumby wrote The Pogues, first line second paragraph for me.

    Just get Bridge over Troubled water.

    Also I don't normaly approve of greatest hits but there is 2cd thingy that really covers all the bases, think it has all but one song from Bridge.
