This is interesting. I suppose I'll have these songs tied at "10.5" then put everything after it one position below in the spreadsheet ("Want You Back" at #12, etc.)

Not to be a critic at all Ron, but is this how Harold's been handling ties in the album spreadsheet as well? I figure they should be conformed.

Since it’s just a single ”tie”, please put them both at #10. That’s how I want it to be on the main AM site later.

Alright, I will do that. But for the number at the top (Albums outside a critics' list will be assigned the value "2 X no. of albums + 5" in this row.), should I adjust it to apply to 70 songs or 71 songs?
