    I feel like Steps and Fugees are borderline since they don't have a singular female lead singer like The Cranberries or No Doubt, for example (the guys can lead too). If the song is led by the females in the group, it can be allowed though.

    I have a few eligibility questions. Do these count?

    Belinda Carlisle - Summer Rain (album was released in 1989, but according to Wikipedia the single was issued 13/1/90)
    Melanie C - Never Be The Same Again (album released 1999, but the single was issued 20/3/00)

    Snap! - Rhythm Of The Night (female lead vocal?)
    La Bouche - Be My Lover (female lead vocal?)

    Sorry, I missed that you had questions. I would treat Snap and La Bouche like you would something like the Cranberries or Siouxsie and the Banshees, so they should be ok.

    The single release date is what counts So Belinda's song is eligible while Mel C's is not.

    I am going to update the deadline because I just realized I will be just getting back from a trip when the deadline hits.

    So, new deadline will be June 17th. I will update the OP.

    I am currently still putting my list together - I will try and have it submitted soon.

    I am finding this countdown extremely hard (not to find songs) but to rank them.

    The only part of the countdown I'm happy with is the Top 6

    Still working on my list. Whew!!
    Glad deadline was extended!
    I just want to be sure before submitting via PM...2 questions:
    #1. #50 is top choice/ranking/selection? (Seems a backwards way of listing; why I'd like to be sure). I've compiled list; now need to rank 'em. Oh...I re-read instructions - this is b/c 50 Points is highest grade? Correct? Again, just confirming before ranking my list w/points.

    #2. If I like several songs by an artist, should I list them all together in ranking, or can they be separated in list ranking/;points (if I like one song a huge deal & like songs by others in between)?

    Thanks!!!

    I'd compiled a list, but somehow when I tried to send it, the message was lost. I think my browser viewed me as having signed out, then in again between the time I drafted and the time I sent.

    At any rate, my old list was just based on plays, so I'm actually going to take some time out and focus more on quality for my next list, coming soon to a game-loving user's inbox near you.

    I believe this is answered in the OP.

    *Please be mindful of the above format. The last countdown I conducted had people listing their favorite song as 01, which made things very confusing. Also, please ensure it is Artist, THEN song title.

    Great...got it!
    Thanks for reminder it's artist, then song title.

    If I have several songs for 1 artist is it alright to separate them? Or, best to keep them together? (Asking since it's listed by point grades.) I may wish to nominate 3 songs by 1 artist, but may like other artists songs in between song selection #1 and song selection #3 - Hope that's understandable!

    Thanks!!!!

    There are no ties so definitely seperate them.

    They don't have to be listed together. You could assign for example one with 40 points another with 30 and another with 20.

    Now happy with my Top 20 - slowly but surely getting there! . It's quite fun re-listening to some older songs.

    Sooo... I think we have eight voters, though I know people usually send theirs as the deadline closes, so I am still thinking we will get at least 20. I'll try to promote this more now that I am back home.

    In any case, these are the voters I have. If you sent me votes and don't see your name, let me know:

    cheapthrills
    Erotica
    GonPop
    hun
    JSparksFan
    MrLeonix
    RedSimba
    taverner

    tagging people who have expressed interest in participating pr participated in the previous countdown:


    I might also be sending out PMs over the next few days.

    @AlmostGold yes, your first choice is given the 50 points as the song with the most points from everyone tops the list.

    @cheapthrills
    What about: "When You Believe".
    Can I add this to Mariah Carey's tally since I already have three Whitney tracks locked?

    Unfortunately, no, because Mariah is also credited on When You Believe.

    EDIT: Er Whitney is also credited.
