Into the top 20 we go, and half the songs survived with no votes at all that round. Four got 1 vote, three got 2 votes, all are safe. Two songs with 3 votes are broken on a tiebreaker, whilst one song is comfortably out with 4 votes.

So, what's got four votes? Well, it's... it's... "The Ballroom Blitz"! I was pleasantly surprised quite how many Sweet tracks made the top 20, but their third highest entry bows out in 20th place.

One act of course has managed to get even more tracks in the top 20 - the legend that is David Bowie. I've been voting it for a while, but we finally lose "The Jean Genie"

So - 18 songs remaining, and again, half were unvoted that round. 3 got 1 vote and 2 got 2 votes making them safe. 3 got 3 votes and we lose 1 on a tie break whilst 1 song is out with 4 votes.

When looking at glam rock, most of it comes from the classic era - bands from 1971-1976 when glam was at its peak. Looking through the list on Wikipedia of "Post 1976 glam", you have an awful lot of rather debatable entries. Just how glam for example are King Adora, or Suede, or Spacehog? Well, there's one band for whom there can be no question, the ultimate kings of glam revival - the Darkness. They almost without fault got through the first pass, had an unmitigated disaster on the second pass, but saw their biggest hit come right through into the top 20. Alas now it's farewell to their biggest hit by far - "I Believe In A Thing Called Love".

Not only do we lose our highest Darkness entry this round, we also lose our highest placed Christmas song. There's loads of them on the original list, and some huge classics in amongst them, but none quite so big as "Merry Xmas Everybody" by Slade. Only one song remains for Slade, but it's arguably their signature tune.
