    Your task this round is to nominate 20 chart songs from the year 1982

    [​IMG]

    To make this easy for everyone, we are looking at songs that made the chart in 1982, so if it was a hit in December 1981 and then continued in the charts in January 1982 it’s eligible.
    [​IMG]
    Also note that some songs are chart hits in different years depending on the country.

    [​IMG]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 1982[​IMG]
    One member chose this year, but who…?
    [​IMG]
    Speculate who you think might have chosen 1982 in this thread, but keep you choice until we make our votes.
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread. [​IMG]

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

    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

    [​IMG]
    Last day for nominations is
    [​IMG]Tuesday 17th January[​IMG]

    I'm having all kinds of chaos going on in my head right now.

    The only version I know and love is Tight Fit with different lyrics






    Then I'm reading ABBA have have a version, but I can't find it nor do I know if they wrote the song.












    EDIT:

    I found this

    The Millionaires were a Dutch pop group founded 1968 best known for their song at the Nationaal Songfestival of 1982, "Fantasy Island".

    Their first major success was the song for the 1980 Summer Olympics "Never Give In", written by the Italian singer Toto Cutugno. The single was released under the name of the band's original singer Jay Delmore (Jaap van der Mooren), who died the same year. After Delmore's death the band had two female singers, Carmen Montana and Angela Irrgang. The next major success, "Fantasy Island" , was written by Martin Duiser and Piet Souer, and released in both Dutch and English versions, but covered again in English by British group Tight Fit.

    No mention of ABBA

    Talk about causing a commotion:lol:
    They were the Dutch Stock/Aitken/Waterman of the late 70s-early 80s, and have written the biggest hits for artists such as Anita Meyer, Champagne, Vanessa (Upside Down:D) and Luv' (as Piet Souer)
    I have the Almighty mix of Tight Fit, it's fantastic:hats:

    But I've never had a problem with it before. Other people did, but that's because of the apostrophe (especially when copied from WORD because it automatically changes apostrophes into Italic, God knows why) OR because they added or forgot a space between O, apostrophe and Drama.

    But not me! I never failed. Until now.
    I suggest that all forum activities come to a halt immediately, and remain so until this problem has been fixed.
