1. I kissed you in the water

    And made your dry lips sing

    I saw you look like a Japanese baby

    In an instant I remembered everything

    When I go through the nominations, I pick out anywhere between 3 and 5 songs from each member. Then I select the 10 I like best. This time, I will let you in on a secret... The 5 songs I chose from each member are in this post. First my top 10 list, then the songs that made the cut but not the top 10 list.

    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

    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.
