Manics Top 50s - 16th August 2013

As the deadline looms we seem to be having a rush on charts with two more being submitted or concluding today.  Two old friends in the number 1 spots again, another triumph for The Holy Bible!!!  Certainly looking a strong contender for the album title, which probably doesn't come as much surprise to anyone submitting a chart.  To make it fair, when I do the album chart, I will calculate it on total score divided by number of tracks as 'Generation Terrorists' would get a massive advantage over 'Send Away the Tigers' otherwise!!

The first chart by Sarah E is also the first instalment of our only (as far as I know) husband and wife contribution!!!  I'm sure everyone is following the second instalment as it counts down on Twitter a bit more slowly....take a bow JamGaw.

Interesting curio in the second chart too, a first vote for 'New Art Riot' B-side 'Last Exit on Yesterday'. My attention on the no votes score is starting to shift to B-sides now, there will obviously be a lot but interesting to see which ones they will be!!  Watch out for more charts counting down over the weekend, I know we have some planned!
