Manics Top 50s - 14th March 2015

While writing up today's chart and comparing with yesterday's it struck me that both are quite different in their favourites and that's the beauty of the Manics back catalogue.  With yesterday's chart having a large contingent from the Holy Bible and Journal for Plague Lovers, it leaned towards the more lo-fi elements of their history in places.

Today, in the upper echelons at least, we have a selection from some of their, shall we say, shinier, more melodic songs.  Having said that it's another chart that is quite evenly split across the eras and sees another song get its first number one placing.  I forgot to mention yesterday that we now have 5 albums that have at least one vote for all of their songs, others are very close to completing the full set.  With a fair way to go we've definitely had some diverse charts so far, so keep them coming!!
