Welcome to the last 'impossible' part. Yes, from Friday onwards, you'll only be bombarded with just ONE rate a week. But the downside is they will probably get more difficult as we'll be ruthlessly saying goodbye to hundreds of great famous tracks. All current rates (Part 3, and Impossible parts 4, 5 and 6 will all end by Friday. So, without further ado...

+10
+9
+8
+7
+6
+5
+4
+3
+2
+1

If you know much less than ten songs, you can do four:

Number 27s

damn there's some mini-classics not making the top 10 in this chart! It should be a top 20. Jailhouse Rock is number 11, shockingly. I mean, classic (albeit it 50's)...
The whole top 6 deserve full marks.

+9 Propaganda - Dr Mabuse
+8 Simple Minds - Up On The Catwalk
+7 Damned - Alone Again Or
+6 Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - So In Love

+5 Living In A Box - Gatecrashing
+4 Simple Minds - Someone Somewhere (In Summertime)
+3 Prince - Anotherloverholenyohead
+2 China Crisis - Best Kept Secret

Can I just say, my number ones: Smiths, Crowded House, Bucks Fizz, AC/DC all classic in their own very different ways... cheer.gif

Hmmm, not exactly going the way I imagined there (or wanted!). The runners-up in most categories seem to be the ones I go for. happily Ive already voted for The Smiths best records and can safely give no more points to any they have left higher up, possible exception of Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, so that should put paid to any more victories for them laugh.gif

It's very different to how I expected the 21-40 to look too. Guess a lot of the big alternative acts tended to peak around there - like Abba wink.gif - you could arguably open up some of the multiples if you wanted to impose a rule that only one record gets through per act, but it's mostly a good listen at the moment. The top 20 should be far more varied.

Joy Division getting in though - yay! Let's hope Love Will Tear Us Apart comes in at both number 13 and number 19 too! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
