I'll vote in this, unfortunately my artist selection won't be that varied as I don't know that many songs from the 60s.

Tbh I don't know many of the songs either!

It would be great if a moderator could fix the thread to the top of the "Mad About Music" page. :P

My 60s knowledge is limited as well, but I'll try and make a full list.

no stan votes allowed
Does being a "soul stan" count? Because I can tell you right now, my list is going to be bombarded with an influx of Motown/soul artists. :lol:

Well it until now (with the other countdowns) the number one got 50 points if you voted for 50 songs and 20 points if you voted for 20 songs. But if there are many people that vote for less than 50 songs then I will change this and count 50 points for the number one regardless the number of songs. :wink:

As some people do not know, (or remember), a lot of UK & USA 1960's No.1 Hits,
I thought that I'd add these Links to assist people to cast their Votes.

Well like most things in this site it has been done wrong then.

It totally blows any statistical relevance when a top choice is given varying points,

It certsinly now explains choices in other polls if someone votes and their top song carries much less weight than others who vote and somply pick more songs.

As for the poll I'd love to take part, but if ant support the unfair way things are done around here.

According to the first post in the countdown thread you weren't first on the list, yet the elite crowd rewarded you and you alone the divine right to a countdown,

You know what, maybe I'll just go and start my own poll of number ones from the 60s. No reason why I csnt and I'm not breaking s single law in any international count by doing so. I'll get my challenging poll running over the weekend.

I don't agree. That way you can vote deliberately on just 20 songs knowing your #1 will get 50 points anyway and at least other 30 songs won't get any points by you to be a "danger" to your favorite songs.

I voted! It was hard though. Had about 100 songs I love. To cut it down to 50 wasn't easy.
Although I usually prefer female voices, there are five male acts in my top 10. Even the #1 isn't by a female act.

Before you go around whinging, maybe you should get your facts right first.

Yes, there were four other countdowns ahead of this one in the queue. Each of those hosts has been contacted and has opted to do their countdown at a later date, therefore this one was ready to go ahead.

So stop with this inequality and elite crowd talk, because you're allowing yourself to come across as extremely foolish and childish.

People have already said that they don't know the 60's that well, as you picked 50 songs it means your favourite has a greater chance of winning just on your one vote. So how is that fair, I think some people will pick any old songs just to make up the numbers so they can reach 50...then their favourite will get maximum points.

I don't think many would do what you're suggesting, most people just pick all the songs they like and that's it. Wayne is running the female acts countdown and he gives 50 points to everyone, imo that's how it should always be.

I like the pointing system as it is, this way I always discover new songs to fill in.

Elite crowd? :lol:

Benny requested the theme and, differently from others (rappers countdown lol) he's very committed to running things around here.

I just sent my list. It wasn't hard to create it with my Spotify open.

According to the first post in the countdown thread you weren't first on the list, yet the elite crowd rewarded you and you alone the divine right to a countdown,

You know what, maybe I'll just go and start my own poll of number ones from the 60s. No reason why I csnt and I'm not breaking s single law in any international count by doing so. I'll get my challenging poll running over the weekend.
Before you go around whinging, maybe you should get your facts right first.

Yes, there were four other countdowns ahead of this one in the queue. Each of those hosts has been contacted and has opted to do their countdown at a later date, therefore this one was ready to go ahead.

Then there should be a note to that effect in the list.

I'm still going to stsrt myosn 60s number one countdown, and I expect to be treated equally.

So stop with this inequality and elite crowd talk, because you're allowing yourself to come across as extremely foolish and childish.

Elite crowd? :lol:

Benny requested the theme and, differently from others (rappers countdown lol) he's very committed to running things around here.

I just sent my list. It wasn't hard to create it with my Spotify open.
As of late, many people who were "committed" and whom people would have said the same thing before they started their polls, have dropped the ball.

An elite crowd is one where certain people arbitrarily make rules a s they did limiting countdowns when at the time there was not a SINGLE posted complsint shout too many countdowns. And then handing out countdowns only to themselves and their pals. And never finishing them, yet doing more.

As I said, they limited countdowns and awarded them to their pals. There weren't any complaints about too many countdowns overwhelming people. They just wanted control of the countdowns, and quite insultingly called people stupid thst they wouldn't be able to handle many countdowns going on at once.

Why are you going to start a 60's number ones countdown when there is already one in effect?
