    Clearly I am. :oops:

    Having hits is an interesting challenge, but for what it's worth I'd enjoy these specific year rounds far more if they're not limited to hits every time.

    Having just chart songs gives a much narrower selection of music to work with - only a tiny percentage of all the songs recorded or released in a given year. It also gives less scope for me to discover new music, which is something I really enjoy about the Top Tens.

    These specifics are only intended for the 'Chosen Year' - I believe there is ample music out there that none of us may have discovered even with keeping it to just successful hits.

    I have a folder of my favour 80s chart hits, in the folder is ten folders, one for each year. I've just looked at my 1983 folder and I have a total of 253 hit songs from that year which are favourites of mine. There is definitely scope for everyone to discover new music.

    But it's only for the 'Chosen Year' and we needed some guidelines in which to stick to.

    All our nomination threads are about restrictions.


    There are going to be 100s of songs, much more than when we've used a specific word in the little nominations.





    There's already 32 songs nominated that I haven't heard of. That's plenty for me and we're only half-way through the week.

    I'll just stick a little smiley in here...

    Please don't go back and think about changing your nominations, lets take this round as it is - what each of us believe was a hit in that 1983 and we'll look at getting the specifics right in the next round.

    I appreciate that you've all gone to the trouble of seeking out your choices and i certainly don't want to make it any harder, nor do I want anyone fretting over a song here and there.

    Well well well, isn't that sweet. And how am I supposed to share the prize with someone else? You get the A-side, I get the B-side?

    There'll have to be a prize for each winner. Surely the budget could stretch to two singles!!

    Unless it's a very expensive, sought-after single. But I wouldn't mind recording it to my computer and send you the WAV file. Is that OK with you?
