As we are now half way through the year, I will open the voting for new tracks. Same format as before - 10 songs per person. There is not really much point voting for any of the 25 listed above, as they are already locked in. The top 25 from this round will be added, giving us a top 50.

I will leave this open until Sunday 26th July.

For me that is the only one that works on its own for me.

Just made this longlist then read thread properly and wonder if I need to constrain to Q2 releases? I’d gone for the whole year. Posting anyway so I have it saved somewhere to look back to but will amend it if I’m doing it wrong.
