Finally here! Kicking things off immediately with your bottom 12:

31 6.90 Streets of Glory
32 6.75 The Bigger You Love (The Harder You Fall)
33 6.73 Beauty Remains
34 6.54 Impossible Heart
35 6.40 Let Your Love Walk In
36 6.25 Ready for the Good Life (more 10s)
37 6.25 My Legs Are Weak
38 6.23 Technicolour
39 6.09 I Just Wait (more 9s)
40 6.09 Press Lightly

41 5.93 Broken Doll
42 5.59 Luv Ya

B-side Luv Ya finishes in last place, with album track Broken Doll being just above - it got two -1s so it got lucky to avoid last place I guess! Further up, Ready for the Good Life becomes the lowest single by a mile, seems abut right for it really, I never properly got into it. Impossible Heart appears WAY too low, a big highlight on A Perfect Contradiction for me!

21 7.67 Changing (Sigma feat. Paloma Faith)
22 7.63 When You're Gone
23 7.60 Freedom
24 7.46 Love Only Leaves You Lonely
25 7.36 Play On
26 7.27 Taste My Own Tears
27 7.18 Other Woman
28 7.11 It's the Not Knowing
29 7.07 Beauty of the End
30 7.04 Take Me

Mainly a bunch of album tracks here, including a lot from A Perfect Contradiction, no *huge* losses IMO. Changing is a little bit too high, I find it quite overrated sadly as it's just the same as many other drum and bass tracks. However, it did give Paloma her first EVER #1 hit jameela.jpg so it's good for something I guess!

11 8.40 Agony
12 8.30 Mouth to Mouth
13 8.27 Smoke & Mirrors
14 8.23 Just Be
15 7.97 Black & Blue
16 7.87 Blood, Sweat & Tears
17 7.86 Stargazer
18 7.83 Let Me Down Easy
19 7.82 Trouble with My Baby
20 7.70 Can't Rely on You

Some more singles start to drop now, with A Perfect Contradiction losing its lead single Can't Rely On You (way too low sad.gif) and third single Trouble With My Baby. Only Love Can Hurt Like This and Leave While I'm Not Looking are both still to come. Fifth singles from their respective albums, both Smoke & Mirrors and Black & Blue didn't do anything at all chartwise, and miss the top 10 here, along with JUST BE. WHICH IS RIDICULOUSLY LOW. ASHAMED OF YOU ALL.

'Just Be' is an amazing song, but I guess it's a testament to how strong her discography is that we've got so much to look forward to in the top 10!

True! Speaking of the top 10, this is it in alphabetical order:

30 Minute Love Affair
Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?
Leave While I'm Not Looking
Never Tear Us Apart
New York
Only Love Can Hurt Like This
Picking Up the Pieces
Romance Is Dead
Stone Cold Sober
Upside Down

A surprise or two there IMO - mainly Romance Is Dead ohmy.gif

What a great top 10! I'm not sure I'd consider 'Leave When I'm Not Looking' top 10 worthy over some that have left already but it's still good.

'30 Minute Love Affair' to win! (It won't though)

6 8.87 Never Tear Us Apart
7 8.83 Stone Cold Sober
8 8.71 Leave While I'm Not Looking
9 8.67 30 Minute Love Affair

Racing through this now to try and finish it heehee.gif 30 Minute Love Affair comes 9th here, a sublime track which is very underrated I think, just missed out on my 11! Leave While I'm Not Looking is just above it at #8, I've not completely warmed to this yet and it feels like a massively inferior version of Only Love Can Hurt Like This sad.gif Debut hit Stone Cold Sober is at #7. Fun fact: I didn't know this was Paloma until I bought the album a couple of years ago, it's been everywhere on adverts. And finally, John Lewis advert cover Never Tear Us Apart is at #6, this was actually the first Paloma track I heard and liked, had only heard a couple before this and wasn't initially fussed!

3 9.43 New York (less 11s)
4 9.17 Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?
5 9.10 Upside Down

The remaining three singles from Paloma's debut album drop out just before the top two now. Upside Down was the only single she didn't perform when I saw her live in June 2013 sad.gif It seems like one of her most well-known songs despite never making the top 40! The first album's title track end up at #4, nice to see it so high as it seems very underappreciated to me! New York is comfortably top 3, another favourite of mine so great to see it high. It actually tied with #2 based on average but has less 11s than that track so places lower.

This leaves a top two of ONLY LOVE CAN HURT LIKE THIS and PICKING UP THE PIECES. Which will win? ohmy.gif
