      In that round, Ivan pretty much disagreed with the rest of us entirely - and alas whilst he managed to save one of his top 3, that was all. So, first out, from "Change Giver", we lose "Head and Hands". Second out, from "Instant Pleasures", it's "People Will Talk". Finally, our featured song is Ivan's No. 1 of the round - the other one from "Instant Pleasures" - "Nothing To Live Down".

                  This round was really tough. One track from the greatest hits that wasn't a single and no less than five top 40 hits amongst the nine songs here. There was only one permutation that kept all of those six in - losing the two tracks from "Instant Pleasures" and early track "Missing Out".

                  Well first, it went according to plan, as both "Enemies and Friends" and "It's Not Easy" from "Instant Pleasures" are safe. However, after that, "Missing Out" doesn't miss out after all, and neither does the random track from the greatest hits - "High Hopes". So - which of the five top 40 hits is our least favourite? I have to say it's probably the right call if we have to lose one of them - the debut single from "A Maximum High", 1995's "Where Have You Been Tonight".

                                Welcome to cheapthrills! Three more songs need to go, and it's a bit of a shakeup, as the three weakest scorers from the first pass ALL survive. (Well, the lowest two and one of the two that is tied in third). First up, from "A Maximum High" it's "Magic Streets". After that, it's time to lose another single! It's one half of their No. 80 before-they-were-famous debut - "Mark". Finally, whilst a couple of people ranked the "Let It Ride" album track "Return" high, it wasn't enough to keep it in the survivor.

                                              We need to lose three more songs before we reach the top 24, and the first of them is the title track to third album "Let It Ride". Joining it are the "A Maximum High" album track "This Day Was Ours" and one of the three tracks from "Instant Pleasure" on this list - "Victoria".

                                              So, we're down to the top 24, and it's a reasonably expected bunch - just two top 40 hits have fallen, "Why Can't I Be You" in the first pass and "Where Have You Been Tonight" in the second. We clearly aren't as big fans of songs that are questions!

                                              Our remaining 24 are as follows:

                                              8 tracks from debut album "Change Giver", including 3 top 40 hits
                                              6 tracks from "A Maximum High", four of which were top 40 hits
                                              4 tracks from "Let It Ride", all of which were top 40 hits
                                              2 tracks from the greatest hits package "Going For Gold", one of which was a top 40 hit.
                                              2 tracks from "Truth Be Told", one of which was a top 40 hit.
                                              4 tracks from latest album "Instant Pleasures", which was released after anyone cared enough to give them a top 40 hit
