Other than trebor - who I've PM'd to tell him he's free to start his Top Canadian Acts countdown whenever he's free - and biscuits' Girl Groups countdown (which appears to be on the backburner for the time being), we have no other countdowns scheduled.

If any of you would like to host something, feel free to request in this topic or drop me a PM!

Unless biscuits wants to do it, I was thinking of tentatively doing the Top Collaborations, maybe a little bit down the track though once these two are finished (perhaps in March or something)

We had this countdown from 2004 - but nothing since to my recollection.

If you wanted to host a Christmas music countdown, I'd be fine with that - just let me know so I can update the OP!

I'll participate in it. :)

I'll just try not to place the entire Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas II You songs on the ranking. :lol:

I see there hasn't been a top album countdown in a few years - would it be too soon to request another one? I've always wanted to host something like this :oops:

Would it be for a particular genre or gender or for overall albums?

when's the next females countdown? it feels like ages since the last one, though I think it's still relatively fresh

Sorry for the delayed response bluecherry, I forgot about this - I think either would be fine to be honest, just be very clear about the rules at the outset. Let me know which you'd rather and I''ll add you to the list - when someone then PMs you, you can start.

The last one was only held July last year - see here.

I hold them every 18 months (counting forward from the beginning of the voting period) - so we'll be due another one in March/April time I think!

Was thinking it might be fun to do a countdown of the greatest female-led songs. Has there been something like that recently?

Songs in which women are the lead.

Beyonce - Crazy in Love
Celine - Where Does My Heart Beat Now
Ariana Grande - Problem

etc.

Be more inclined to say yes if you could narrow it down a bit more - maybe by genre or decade or some other distinct separator?

If you did it like that, you could then maybe create a mini-series or something. Have a think and let me know!

It’s probably better to do it by decade

I think so too. Genre feels too specific and then I think it would limit participation too much.

Maybe 2000-2009 to start and then go backwards? Would like to do this decade, but we have another couple years to go so maybe I can revisit when the series is done.

Limiting it to singles is probably a good idea too

So female-led singles from 2000-2009. Does that work? :D

Fine with that.

Will add you to the queue and PM you when you can start (probably next week).

Would it be possible for me to host a countdown for singles released in 2017? I know there are many personal year-end-charts on here, but then we'd have like one big countdown for ukmix' favourite singles of 2017.
