Manics Top 50s - 28th February 2015

It's great to see that, apart from the last chart, all of the contributors so far (including a couple not yet blogged) are new participants, it bodes well for increasing our overall total!

Today's chart sees a number one that hasn't yet had that particular accolade as yet and as mentioned in the first 'additional comments by the author' section below it's quite evenly spread across the albums.

Today's blog feels like an opportune moment to mention my own chart endeavours.  I will of course be submitting my own top 50 in due course, but I'm not stopping there.  I'm extending my chart to include ALL of the eligible songs, yes, all 307 of them.  Only the top 50 will get a score for the overall chart of course, but it will definitely be interesting attempting to rank all of the songs!!  I can't say yet when my chart will be complete but rest assured there will be a full Twitter countdown in chunks of 25!  If any of you stay awake that long, that is.......

"This has ended up rather more evenly spread between eras than I anticipated... I first came across "New Chart Riot" about a week after the first chart was compiled, so I'm glad to have the opportunity to contribute this time around. Hopefully "Epicentre" can, if nothing else, crack the top 100 - criminally underrated track and definitely my favourite Manics tune."
