Number 26s are difficult, I think I've only just heard ten so here they go...

+10 The Smiths - Big Mouth Strikes Again
+09 The Smiths - Shakespear's Sister
+08 The Beloved - The Sun Rising
+07 Lloyd Cole & The Commotions - Perfect Skin
+06 Captain Sensible - Wot
+05 The Four Bucketeers - The Bucket Of Water Song (I do actually quite like this!)
+04 A Flock Of Seagulls - The More You Live, The More You Love
+03 Frank Kelly - Christmas Countdown (Uncle Jack - the idea is good but it gets very tiresome towards the end)
+02 Big Country - Just a Shadow
+01 Musical Youth - 7

Much easier to do the #29s - can't believe I'm only giving Public Enemy five points here!

+10 New Order - Temptation
+09 The Clash - I Fought The Law
+08 The Cure - Just Like Heaven
+07 Cocteau Twins - Pearly-Dewdrops Drops
+06 Echo & The Bunnymen - People Are Strange
+05 Public Enemy - Fight The Power
+04 Mory Kante - Ye Ke Ye Ke
+03 Norman Cook Feat Billy Bragg - Won't Talk About It
+02 Billy Bragg - Levi Stubbs' Tears (EP)
+01 Kid Creole & The Coconuts - Dear Addy

...and the obscure #38s - please let New Order win this one - would love to see Everything's Gone Green in the 40! Either that or the Poppies!

+10 New Order - Procession / Everything's Gone Green
+09 Pop Will Eat Itself - Can U Dig It?
+08 Public image Ltd - Disappointed
+07 AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long
+06 Japan - All Tomorrow's Parties
+05 And Why Not? - Restless Days (She Screams Out Loud) (ha - I remember these guys, named after a Barry Norman catchphrase!)
+04 A Flock Of Seagulls - Transfer Affection
+03 Lloyd Cole & The Commotions - Cut Me Down
+02 Simon Harris - Here Comes That Sound
+01 Portsmouth Sinfonia - Classical Muddley
