Surely The Sound of Silence is their best number?
Really enjoyed Heath's write up for Doves, did them complete justice.
Pleased my vote for Bob Marley & The Wailers counted for something. One of those ones where many people just consider Bob Marley the musician but was certainly one entity of a hugely influential entire band, who have produced so many tunes its unreal. Eeeveryone knows reggae thanks to them.
How I left out Arcade Fire I'll never know, complete oversight.
Kasabian were close too.
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Great to see the Pogues get a mention. Definitely wasn't expecting that.
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
I voted for precisely nought of these, it doesn't augur well
The Wailers probably the only one I'd have considered.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
I'm really excited to see this start, enjoying what everyone's written.
Looking at this, the write-up I did, if you use it, is going to make me look like a total weird-o.
I guess I was thinking there'd be a You-tube link for each act -- it was kind of central to my write-up -- and it's a bit disappointing really, would have been nice to listen to samples while reading what's been written.
I had two of these -- pleasantly surprised to see the Wailers get through; the Pogues not so surprising. Great write-up there.
I'm shocked to see Simon & Garfunkel getting in -- there aren't words to describe how much I despise Bridge over Troubled Water. Some of the earlier stuff was good, I suppose.

I would have used a YouTube link but the only access I have at the minute is on my phone so it would have been a massive pain for me to get them all - kept the ones provided in write ups so yours is there
Good stuff; especially enjoyed Heefster's Doves eulogising. Assuming he was one of those two twenty-somethings?
For myself I had 3 of the 10 in my 25: Doves @ 11, The Pogues @ 13 and The Go-Betweens a place further back. None of the others really troubled the scorers; never really thought of The Wailers as separate from Robert Nesta either.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
