It's a great list (probably better than the 90s actually) but I managed to make a shortlist of 50 quite easily. Now to put them in order

I found my 50 songs (had to dismiss many I also love sadly :( )
The 80s were so good, hard to rank them now :(

I'm struggling man, I'm going to be so gutted at leaving some of these songs out, I'm down to 141 now! :lol: There is just so much more variety and choice and great No.1's IMO, in the 80's than the 90's one, which seemed so overrun with certain artists and styles.

This doesn't mean that it's right..btw as you want! :D I don't like or don't know many of these songs..so it's more difficult for me to write a top50! I think I will fill it with random choices! :lol:

Best way IMO, which is why I always do it like that. A fair weather voter shouldn't have as much power.

really thanks trust voter...what you don't understand maybe is that people in the effort give to 50 points to his #1 will fill the top50 with random songs and the survivor will be less reliable.

TBH, hopefully people like this will not play in the survivor, to me that would be a completely pointless exercise and waste of time, not to mention quite a sad individual.

Surely you know more than 20 of these songs, I could easily have nominated a Top 200, I found picking a Top 50 enormously hard, the amount of songs I've had to leave out (that I love and really like) is ridiculous!
