The finale is here and the poll has been opened. The mid-80s appear to be a peak for summer songs.

Remember to cast your vote in the poll, and not in the thread (though you are of course free to share your vote if you like).

Yes, this is so damn predictable. :lol:

Love both though and I think PDP is underrated among her stans.
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

Madonna is my winner. Papa Don't Preach was one of my most played songs in the summer of 1986. (I bought the True Blue album that summer and the title song was my most played song.)
