Manics Top 50s - 8th March 2015

Today's chart comes from, well, my mother.  What can I say, I'm a bad influence.  She also insisted her chart was in purple.  That perennial low-scorer in the 'By Era' charts, Lifeblood, gets its day in the sun here with seven songs making the cut.  If you're also a Lifeblood fan and want to see it get a bit more recognition here, what are you waiting for?!  It managed to get one song into the final 50 last time, will it go one better or disappear without a trace?  There are still weeks ahead of us to determine which way it will go......

Jennifer - Mother of @Pyfbrown

"My favourite track of all time for the Manics is Motorcycle Emptiness and I would always vote for this as my 1st track in any chart for the Manics. I voted for my 50 favourite tracks last time, and this time have changed it somewhat. I've listened to recent albums of the Manics, owned by @Pyf brown, and have liked some of these tracks, and therefore entered them in my top 50 favourites. Though my favourite album has got to be Gold Against The Soul."
