    Crap - that's what happens when we don't agree! A whole load of songs go! Shame we lost Beautiful South, but glad one or two overpredictable songs left with it (such as the huge Kylie hit). Sorry guys, but I'm going after some of the other female soloists.

    15. Dusty Springfield - You Don 't Have To Say You Love Me
    22. Barry White - You¹re The First, The Last, My Everything
    26. Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive
