    Your task this round is to nominate 20 chart songs from the year 1978

    To make this easy for everyone, we are looking at songs that made the chart in 1978, so if it was a hit in December 1977 and then continued in the charts in January 1978 it’s eligible.

    Also note that some songs are chart hits in different years depending on the country.

    To avoid duplicates where a song crosses over two years, I will eliminate it in future rounds. No one wants the same song winning twice.

    Back to the year and this time we are revisiting 1978

    One member chose this year, but who…?

    [​IMG]

    Speculate who you think might have chosen 1978 in this thread, but keep you choice until we make our votes.

    Posting a link for each nomination would be ideal, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.

    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread.

    Staying with the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.

    To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.

    20 songs is the maximum, but if you don't have 20 anything less is fine.

    New rule
    Duplicates are more than welcome, but they won't be included when we take the vote

    Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs


    Last day for nominations is

    Sunday 4th December

    I'm glad this rule has been updated too. We show what we like when we nominate the songs, so there's no reason to vote for those same songs again.

    My eyes are not liking the black text on green or red, or the white text on green or red.
    Yellow on green is perfectly ok though. Red on green not as good.
    I sit so far away from the screen usually, and now I have to squint. :oops: The wrinkles, the wrinkles!!
