    PART 3

    Well hello again my hit factory friends. So you’ve cast your critical eye over their major canon but we both know there’s so much more to the S/A/W and PWL legacy. Here’s your chance to catch up with their minor works, non UK singles, and anything else I missed in parts 1 & 2 and there’s some crackers in here I promise.

    So what’s included?

    All remaining S/A/W singles not already rated including overseas releases, planned singles and promo releases.

    Plus the work of Pete Hammond (post 1986- early 1991 when he left) in addition to works by Curnow & Harding (up until they left in early 1992) and Daize Washbourn. Note: Only written and/or produced or co-produced tracks will count.

    To help me decide I used good old Discogs, and books by Mark Elliott, Phil Harding, Pete Waterman, and Mike Stock

    What’s not included?

    Tracks produced by Tony King, Mike Duffy, Dave Ford or any other PWL tracks- why? Well nothing that was left out was essential and I wanted to keep the rate well under 100 tracks- I could have easily filled 4 rates with all the track otherwise- so if your favourite was one of them then apologies.

    Rules of the thread:
    • Listen to each track and rate out of 10 (half points are permitted)​
    • DO NOT reveal your scores for any track until it has left the rate​
    • You may select one song to receive your 11 (though this is not obligatory)​
    • Commentary is encouraged as it greatly enhances the quality of the reveals but it is not compulsory​
    • Don't troll any particular artist (that's just naughty)​
    • PM your results to me by Sunday 29th September 2019 at midday (GMT)
    Part 1 of this rate can be found here:
    Part 2 of this rate can be found here:

    With all that in mind let's share a secret with Kylie:


    Ponder on how strong a man Rick was:


    And wonder how good Bananarama were to us:

  5. I'll work on putting the songs and links up this afternoon but the way the thread will work will be to first rate the all the tracks in this part of the rate and then at the end put the top 50 highest rated tracks across all three rates into a straightforward ranking system. I'll explain it all better when we get to it but for now the first part is a bog standard rate part!
  6. OMG it’s here! It’s happening! All over the again! I’m so happy happy!

  7. Video links all uploaded and PMable list in post 3- Phew!

  8. Oh heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

    Most of this is new to me so I'm excited for some discoveries.
  9. Ooh excited to delve into this-a lot of songs I don;t know and not an immediate 11 contender!

    Everyday’s Like Christmas is one of the very rare Christmas songs that I can actually enjoy no matter the time of year. Fantastic remix - I don’t even remember ever listening to the original, I love the remix so much.

  11. I think they nailed that Christmas 1988 feeling on the head there.

  12. I should warn you some of the video clips are not the best but given we're not talking about the massive hits here that's to be expected. And I couldn't find some of the 7" mixes on youtube so apologies and all that.
