Masterpieces?

So this is the latest. I've taken the majority of suggestions from on here (thanks), but added some of my own too, simply because they just make the hairs on my arms stand up, which, to me, equals "Masterpiece" if it can have that effect.

I'm torn between You Have Killed Me & The Lazy Sunbathers (#28) at the moment? I'd like Jacky's Only Happy & maybe Dear God Please Help Me to slot in somewhere but without going to #51.

Just as a point of interest, V&I features mostly, followed by Maladjusted in position 2, then in equal measure, Swords, Viva Hate, Your Arsenal, Bona Drag.

What a compilation though! & it's been great checking through some of these, which mainly languish on the hard drive...which is a complete & utter crime (But this, you, You surely knew):

Agree with most of these, except for "I Bury the Living" - a deeply cynical and smug exercise in scapegoating. The very antithesis of "Decades" by Joy Division.
