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.
Appreciate Swanneh For The Genius He Is.
Bore off, seriously.
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.
