Great Things

List time again. This might be an ongoing thing, I like making lists. It’s not because I’m autistic, I just like being organised. And today’s list game is:

Top Ten Greatest hits that are not on the Greatest hits

The rules are like me – simple but pedantic. You can choose any songs an artist has released except for singles or tracks included on their Greatest Hits. And you can’t choose a-sides but aa-sides of double a-sides are permitted.

  2. Ooh, I shall have to do a Queen list. I like yours, but I'd have to include Death On Two Legs, Sail Away Sweet Sister, Bring Back That Leroy Brown, Is This The World We Created?... BTW Unfortunately you can't have Put Out The Fire because it's on 'Queen Rocks'. Them's the rules.

    Also have to do lists for the Beatles, David Bowie, The Human League, Sparks... loads.
