Not posted in here for almost a month! So, here goes...

John Lennon - legend, but not QUITE a big enough fan of his solo career to vote him.
Metallica, Neil Diamond, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Ray Charles, 2Pac, RHCP, Johnny Cash, Jay-Z, Roy Orbison, Nirvana, Take That - legends, but not personal favourites
Damien Rice - I like some of his best, but he's far from perfectly reliable with phenomenal tunes.
Will Young - like him, but just not enough to vote for.
Richard Marx - two hit wonder for me - nowhere near enough I know to vote for him.
Lenny Kravitz, Hurts, John Legend, Michael Buble - unremarkable IMHO, compared with who there was to vote for
Brandon Flowers - nah - not great as a soloist.
Charlie Puth, Chainsmokers, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, Frank Ocean, Zayn - NH
Avicii, Enrique Iglesias, Nick Jonas, 1 Direction, Kendrick Lamar, Adam Lambert - not my thing

Anyway...

Aerosmith, Keane, Killers and Erasure were just outside my votes. All four are great in their own way - but I couldn't quite squeeze them in.

I'm going to announce DNCs from outside my votes for Liverpool 00s indie band Amsterdam, wonderful London 00s indie band Athlete and singer-songwriter Matthew Jay, as no other soul will have voted them.

43. Slade (369) - Shame they didn't do better. I couldn't give them many votes myself, but shame only one other person found space for these rock legends!

40. Paul McCartney (64) - Great to see him in the top 100 - true musical legend. My votes were solely for his solo work, not even Wings, who I classed separately, but as a soloist IMHO he's done loads of great stuff!

38. Paul Simon (50) - Another entry based solely on his solo work - and largely for the phenomenal "Graceland". He's far higher up my votes as half of a duet...

34. Suede (210) - Glad to see I wasn't totally alone in voting Suede - but would have been brilliant to see them higher still...

33. Pulp (476) - To say I wasn't totally alone in voting Pulp is technically true but only barely. Shame they bombed so badly!

29. Little Man Tate (491) - Like anyone else was going to vote for this wonderful but rather long forgotten mid table Sheffield 00s band...

26. Madness (445) - OUCH. That's crazily low for Madness. How was I almost alone in voting for them?!?

25. Lonestar (452) - However I fully accept I'm the lone fan on UKMIX for country band Lonestar. Got loads of their albums, love their stuff, but yeah, country never does well on here.

24. James Blunt (147) - Great to see him at least vaguely near the top 100. However uncool it might be to like him, I think he's great! Not 100% convinced on the current album though...

22. Space (423) - I was sadly always going to be alone in voting 90s indie band Space as well. They had some phenomenal tracks back in the day!

21. Rod Stewart (48) - Great to see him in the top 50 - and great to see him recently FINALLY get a knighthood. Sir Rod is a true institution of British music, with such a huge back catalogue of classic tracks!

18. Delirious? (372) - I was alone in voting for the biggest British Christian rock band of them all - Delirious? Not at all surprised, as Christian Contemporary Music doesn't have many fans around these parts...

17. Kinks (155) - Shame a band as phenomenal and legendary as the Kinks didn't make our top 100 :( They're an amazing band with a huge number of brilliant singles to their name!

16. Blur (345) :-? :o :-? Okay. Someone care to enlighten me how on earth I was alone in voting BLUR? This one has me totally lost! Wasn't necessarily expecting them to go top 100 even, but I assumed at least 2-3 of us would vote them, surely!

11. Cliff Richard (136) - Yeah. All time legend. Most successful British act in chart history by miles. So incredibly uncool with the youth of today and so relatively unknown outside the UK there was no way he would trouble the top 100. Pleased he did as well as he did.

8. Oasis (71) - Glad to see Oasis didn't suffer the same fate as rivals Blur. The ultimate legends of UK 90s indie music.

7. Bluetones (254) - Sadly I knew I'd be alone in voting for the Bluetones - a brilliant band I've seen live more than any other act (particularly if you also count Mark Morriss solo). Incredible string of albums, even if the latter ones have struggled to produce hits that anyone outside their fan base seems to care about...

6. Flanders and Swann (246) - The most inevitable fact of this chart for me was that I'd be alone in voting for comedy song duo Flanders and Swann. A HUGE personal favourite, but one that practically no-one else on here even knows!

and my No. 1 has fallen - but nowhere near as badly as I thought...

1. Divine Comedy (104)
Very pleased to see other people giving Divine Comedy a decent number of votes. Maybe they've done better relatively speaking to other indie acts because arguably Divine Comedy can be called a soloist for a lot of the act's career. If we could only vote for soloists in this list, I might well still have voted Divine Comedy as my No. 1, and arguably also if it was a groups countdown I'd consider doing likewise - it's somewhere between the two. Anyway, Neil Hannon is a phenomenal musician and thankfully this time he's coming to Cardiff I've got a ticket in time, so will be seeing a date on the "Foreverland" tour. So many phenomenal tracks in his back catalogue!

Only 18 of my top 50 made the actual top 50 - and one of those has already fallen. Ah well... One I'm stunned to see top 50 - thought I might be alone in voting him!

I agree though Justin Bieber being higher than Elvis and Bruce Springsteen is far worse I would say.

George ♥

Would've preferred to see Prince inside the top 5. Quite surprised @ Elton and Coldplay :o

Thanks for hosting, CrazyCrazy! :D
