This would be interesting.

Now i've started Glee, I've thought of another for the queue (inspired by some of my recent Survivor requests)

"AustraliaNZa" - UKMix Top Songs by Australian/NZ Artists (as we often like to claim them under our umbrella at the ARIA awards and such).

With a criteria of singles and stan vote limit = 5-6 per artist (depending on the variety of artists in the voting shortlist). Ill also throw in a list of artist suggestions for some sample listening for the voting period. Could be interesting. :P

I'd be interested in the AT Albums countdown too. I remember Dustin ran one a loooooooong time ago. If I recall, MJ had the top 2 with Thriller and Bad.

Biscuits, please add my Ultimate Female Artists countdown to the front page - my intention is to host mid 2016 [kick-start the voting process in May, with a view to starting the countdown late June/early July]. I'm considering a change this year in which only solo females will be eligible.

That okay m'dear?

Yeah. With this being the icon of ukmix countdowns, you get precedence and can start it whenever :)

So... Asterisks are good to go? I'm thinking of starting the nominations phase for Dance Anthems soonish. Just have to set a limit on the voting pools and things like that.

Also thinking of Making the Aus/NZ songs one an Artist countdown instead - might get more chance of getting some more obscure ones up there - and maybe having a 'best/fave song' component but tossing up if that will make things a bit complicated.

Anyhow. I'm good to start Dance Anthems? :P

I've got another idea, can space out after Sholas' one in the queue perhaps (which needs updating btw biscuits ;) )

Soundtrack Songs :P

Also can my Aus/NZ one be changed to an Aus/NZ Artists countdown please. I have a base voting list of around 308 ready to go for that after I'm done with Dance Anthems. :P

It doesnt look like anyone wants to pick up the album one, does Affiliate want to take on two at a time?

It wouldn't be too much of an effort of a countdown to do entries for etc I suppose (it would maybe need a nominations list as well). Although I'd rather give someone else the opportunity to take it on, seeing as I also have the countdown following it in the queue (Aus/NZ Artists) kindof way as well. :P

can't wait for this! I stan for this countdown. it actually feels like the last one was quite recent

are artist countdowns still forbidden? that Kate Bush one was good. would love maybe David Bowie one to celebrate his entire opus
