    Ok, so we can rule out @Willie Oleson everyone. Hear that? No more votes for Willie. And no votes for me either, please. ;)

    I'm really sorry, but I've had a few unexpected things happening in the real world and I've still to check out the songs. I'm not going to get close to doing that until late into the weekend, so please don't rush if you haven't yet voted.


    I'll get the next theme up and running at the weekend too - for those who might be getting a little impatient with it all.

    The way I do it to go though all the songs usually 2 sets of nominees (i.e. 40 songs) per day and give every song a score out of 10 (to one decimal place). I then take the top 10 scores and play about 30 seconds of each of those songs to refresh my memory and reorder my final top 10 if necessary.

    My top 10:

    01. Whatever – Oasis @Emelee
    02. Summer Of '71 - Bolland & Bolland @Willie Oleson
    03. Rather Be – Clean Bandit @Ome
    04. If You Leave Me Now - Chicago @Mel O'Drama
    05. If You Go Away – Dusty Springfield
    06. Only You [Live for Burberry] - Alison Moyet @Mel O'Drama
    07. Millenium - Robbie Williams @Justine
    08. Take Your Carriage Clock And Shove It - Belle & Sebastian @Willie Oleson
    09. She Said - Plan B @Justine
    10. Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky - Manic Street Preachers @Long Lashes

    I think @Justine had the most diverse and most interesting nominees overall so I think she chose the theme, although she could be stringing us along.

    11 points above the #2, that's an impressive victory.
    Congratulations on your winning nomination Mel O'Drama.

    And who is the third winner? Which clever forum member outfoxed the fox?

    Well done @Angela Channing and congrats on the wonderful winning song @Mel O'Drama

    Well done @Willie Oleson, it was me! Actually I was sure you'd be on to me, you know me too well. I do love strings and so this round was such a pleasure, looking for songs and discovering so much great music on people's lists.

    It's a rarity for my nominated songs to be the most chosen, so thanks everyone :)

    Thank you both. I have to enjoy these rare moments of success before going on to the next round when normal service will be resumed and nobody picks my songs. :D
