    RULES

    Each player nominates 10 songs released in the UK in the year 1998.

    - One song that made #1 or #2
    - Three songs that made #3-#10
    - Three songs that made #11-#30
    - Three songs that made #31-#75



    STARTING NOW post your list of 10 tracks publicly in this thread and it is first-come first-served, so if somebody beats you to it you'll need to change that particular song to something else, so it'll be handy to have a few back-ups.

    To help adhere to the rules for song choices:
    EVERYHIT.COM | Tells you each song's peak position.
    POLYHEX.COM | Also tells you peak positions and the date a song entered the chart.


    Remember to double check the release date and peak though!!!!

    Once the nominations have been made, the tracks will be randomized and split into groups, which will be ranked. At the end of the round, each song will have a total score. This repeats until all songs have been played across 10 rounds and the winner is revealed.

    There won't be eliminations, so if your best selections don't come out at first then they will come round eventually meaning the league table can change at any time.

    RESERVE YOUR SPOT & share your selection once you have it!

    Only share your songs once you have the 10 selections! Reserving only some songs won't be accepted!!!

    Hope you join and have fun!
    I reserve 1 spot but I'll be the last player to choose the songs. If 10 players have already signed in feel free to add your name!!!

            It was originally hosted by Thriller, who came up with the idea many years ago. You won one of his editions.
            I continued it in its 4th ot 5th edition as I like to revisit past music and this is simple and fun.

                                I’ll have a look later at the songs that have already been chosen and see if I can come up with a list that’s worth playing with.

                                                Ths link no longer works: "EVERYHIT.COM | Tells you each song's peak position."
                                                At least not for me.

                                                Also, the quick reference UK 1998 charts on UKMiX are starting HERE.
                                                ( We need to save this link for future reference! It's hard to track down and navigate in the thread itself plus there are a lot of sizing issues and links that lead to nowhere. )

                                                Will add some songs tomorrow (hopefully)
