                    Thanks! Fixed.

                    I left the Orbison song in as it was a USA debut

                      Just spend 30 minutes going to my old posts - we started 1989 and 1999 early in Jan 2009 and the first charts i voted in were for the weeks ending 4 Jan in those two years. So, yeah, we came full circle

                      Like Tony, i will stop posting in these as i don't think my taste has changed in the last 10 years (other than disliking 99.99% of current music, from monotonous dreary (c )rap a la Drake and Post Malone to sleep-inducing "rock" a la George Ezra)

                      Thanks a lot, Dusty, for running these for a whole decade with such dedication and making me come back to the site for 30 min every week - would have long been gone if it wasn't for these threads. Dinner on me in London in July

                                i agree that today's chart music is a pure shit, but there's so many great music in the underground
