    Thanks!
    I figured that the US charts would have been somewhat different from the European lists, that's why we needed to see them:)

    1978 is very special to me, I got my first LPs and 7" singles (the ones before '78 belonged to my brother and parents) and of course the music is fantastic!
    The one who picked this year must have an extremely good taste in music.

    It's Sunday, almost half past 5 pm. Is it still Saturday in the US?
    I'll never be able to comprehend that some countries live in the past, and others in the future (like Australia).

    It's 11:30 am here in the US I have always thought you were a day ahead of me. :confused:

    Oh I forget to add it's Sunday here too.

    I am with you and when it comes to how everyone watches TV shows that really confuses me if it's a live broadcast.

    I think it was @Toni 's choice. And I also think he could not have voted for the Forever Autumn song because that's a duplicate:p

    I'm going to treat this as a special 'one off' in that Toni wanted to nominate but thought we couldn't include covers, however by that time Angela had already nominated the song and I didn't think it was fair to take that away. Plus with the new ruling happening this week, I thought I could be somewhat lenient.


    It won't happen twice though, you mark my words :D
