Will you be able to process a list of fewer than 20, Ange?
If I came up with 10, would they score 10 down to 1, 20 to 11 or perhaps go down in twos from 20 to 2?

Sure, Ray. Any number of songs up to 20 is ok. The number 1 on a list will be given 25 poins, and i'll just work downwards from there.

Excellent, 2 more in now.


If you haven't done it, please do - your fave Kinks songs, from 1 up to 20, and PM them to me.

I always thought I preferred the Savage Young Kinks, yet here I am looking at a list that contains the entire first side of Village Green... :?
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Any KINKS fans who haven't done this yet?
Ever since I sent fange my list I've had the most wonderful thing happen.
My brain started filling up with gobs of songs that aren't on my list.
I sent my list at least a week ago and it's still happening. it's wonderful!

Most bands would be more than happy to have an output as good as The Kinks after Lola (though I have only used 6 songs with that condition)

I unwittingly left Johnny Thunders off of my list...so it's clearly a debacle.

Got it down to 20! Sadly, had to leave off some Kinks Kontroversy faves along with a handful of VGPS tunes. Now to put them in order.

that's a good one. I'll bet you a nickel that lots of others remember it.

you know the one I overlooked? "This is Where I Belong"
Holy SHIT, what a great song. I want to hear versions by Lorde and Celine Dion and John Davidson & I want to hear them NOW!
