Holy Cow, this was a difficult one. Manic Street Preachers are the most important band of my lifetime, I’ve seen them 57 times, I have all the records and you are asking me to condense it all down to 14 tracks…? Well, I made the rules for this series so I will adhere to them. Sorry Gold Against The Soul, Futurology, Rewind The Film…
The rules – Any officially released songs are eligible : originals, covers, remixes, instrumentals, whatever I want.
There has to be only 14 songs, 7 on each side, cause we are imagining this as a real record. Or cassette.
These are my choices, don’t get angry cause I left out your favourite, make your own, it’s fun!
It has to flow, so no 14 ballads collections, which will become trickier when we do Motley Crue / Glam Metal (spoiler!)
If there are any bands you want to fast track in the series, buy me a coffee and I’ll do those first. 😉
OK? Let’s Play!
