    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.
    Thanks. My girl has the greatest hits CD, I just burnt the songs I liked the most. I'll try and listen to the album in its entirety one of these days.

    Nice write-ups indeed. Took me till the end of the first sentence to realize it was BB.

    Looking at the lengths though, I seriously cut too much out of mine. 290 characters I believe. Ah well..

    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.

    Do you still have what you cut out? Feel free to send over if you want, happy to put a longer one in.

    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.

    Don't think I do actually. I can still add a bit more when I have time. Will you need it anytime soon?

    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.

    Actually, just read my write-up again, and I think I might leave it as that. Short but sweet. Will send you a YT link to go with it though. I had originally planned to do that but forgot (plus no access to YT at work).
