The big losers are punk and new wave tracks who all just get edged out of the 30 along with some 60's goodies, love 'em but my heart is more early 70's and they get less votes. Condolences to PIL, Stranglers, Small faces, Rods, Fantastics, Marvin Gaye and loads of others that should have made the chart cry.gif

Another Carpenters biggie?! Have to be honest, that guitar solo on top of Karen's plaintive vocals just outdoes major epics, including their own UFO OTT song..
