    Everyone nominates 20 novelty songs, posting a video link for each nomination would be very welcome, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.

    Staying with the same format, once the nominations are completed, I will post the final list and everyone votes for the best ten - 5 from your nominations and five from the rest.

    (You can have as many as ten from the other nominations, but if you want your choices then that is capped at five)


    Closing date for nominations is Friday 28th November, so that's just under a week to think & get your 20 nominations in.

    As with the previous nominations I'm creating a new thread for the votes to take place allowing the full list to be on page one. Once it's all completed I will merge the two threads together.

    Below is the full list of songs nominated to create a top ten most voted for 'Novelty Songs'

    Please vote for your favourite ten.


    One rule

    You can include up to 5 choices from your own selection but the other five must be made up of songs you didn’t nominate.

    Alternatively, you may choose ten songs from the list you didn’t nominate but if you wish to choose songs from your nominations then a maximum of 5 is all that’s allowed.

    It's one of those Love It or Hate It songs.
    I haven't decided yet, but I do hate the child's voice answering the questions.

    I thought the child at the beginning and end was the best part, so much innocence. That said I spent at least two minutes staring at the rating options and I was stumped, I really do not know how to rate that post. It's just....

    According to the information in the CD booklet this was the first song that used samples from other sources. I think that supports my case of the novelty factor.
