Warning! Music culling in process

Over the next couple of months there are to be some heavy decisions made, whilst I compile my top 40 songs of all time list, in readiness for my 40th Birthday party in November.

Now, with it being 10th August today, and only three months until the big announcement, I felt that some heavy culling needed to be done, as I realistically want to be left with 40 tracks at the end of this month, to better enable me to organise them into the order that will be presented at the event.

So, with this in mind, I have, over the weekend, managed to get myself down from 75 tracks to a mere 50, leaving me another three weeks to slice the other ten from the list.

In no particular order, I present the 25 that have now been omitted from consideration as one of the best 40 tracks of all time. Feel free to weep, feel free to anger but be aware that this means better tracks than these remain…;)
