Yes! I see most R&B fans don't really visit Mad About Music.

Anyway, I already made a shortlist consists of 87 songs how am I able to choose? :lol: The thing if whenever we do a throwback countdown, it's not just about the quality of the music itself but it also has to do with the nostalgia attached to each song. :cry:

Yeah definitely. When I did the 90s countdown, I couldn't put some of my faves so high because I discovered them after the 90s

I wasn't going to include Kylie either, as it is a far stretch from what true R&B is, however Body Language managed to captive a style of R&B that could be pop disco influenced. The only song I would put forward as 100% deserving is yes All I See (even more so the remix version), however I don't want to if everyone will then call me out solely because it's Kylie and stuff :lol: :lol:

Wait that was actually a really nice idea. Let me try to do the same thing.

Voted.

I'm pretty satisfied with my list although I'm pretty sure I missed some great songs. Also, I decided not to vote for the obvious Pop ones such as "Halo", "If I Were A Boy", "Big Girls Don't Cry" or "Umbrella" even though I really love them just because I don't think it's fair to include them but that's just me.

Can't wait to see the result! And I'm gonna try promote this countdown on my Urban/R&B AOTY thread as well. :P
