Manics Top 50s - 21st March 2015

Today's chart has a very classic look to it in the top placings, featuring some of the songs that did so well last time around, but is also notable for containing quite a large contingent from 'This is my Truth...' comparatively speaking.  The last three albums fare less well, without a single entry between them.

A little update on my own progress in my marathon run through ordering the whole 307-strong catalogue of eligible songs.  All albums have now been ordered as well as each set of B-sides corresponding to each album.  Now the simple task of playing them off against each other, my least favourites first, to work out the overall running order.  Watch this space!
