Results

The 25 singles with the most points are through to the final. This week,I will countdown the 26 songs that didn't make it.


51. Dana - All Kinds Of Everything 25 pts

Writers - Derry Lindsay,Jackie Smith
Top points - Good Old Days 25


This is the only song to receive points from just one person. It won the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest with Dana representing the Republic of Ireland despite coming from Northern Ireland. She finished ahead of Mary Hopkin (2nd for the UK) and Julio Iglesias (4th for Spain). Dana later went into politics,running for the Irish presidency in 1997 and 2011 but failing on both occasions.

Sorry I forgot about this as well, I meant to do it last night but I got a little distracted. I'll still try and vote in the other semis.

50. The New Seekers - You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me 28 pts

Writers - Tony Macaulay,Geoff Stephens
Top points - Good Old Days 24,King Rollo 4


This was no.1 for a single week in 1974 with Lyn Paul singing the lead vocal. Two years earlier,the New Seekers finished 2nd in the Eurovision Song Contest with 'Beg,Steal or Borrow'. The group are still going but only Paul Layton remains from this line-up. Lyn Paul recently starred alongside Will Young and others in the musical 'Cabaret'.

49. Pussycat - Mississippi 40 pts

Writer - Werner Theunissen
Top points - Good Old Days 18,King Rollo 13,coi 8


This was voted through to the semi-final by Common Sense who didn't vote this time. It still managed to pick up points from 4 people which is not surprising as it's a fine song. It's one of several country music no.1s from the 70s/early 80s. Pussycat were a Dutch group which included the three Kowalczyk sisters. They split up in 1985. 'Mississippi' was written way back in 1969 and was number 1 for 4 weeks in 1976.

oops I missed this thread somehow, sorry!

I like all 3 of those going out! That said there are least 30 songs that would have got my points ahead of them. There are also no songs in the list that I don't like, I think..... biggrin.gif

(just checked - Err Rage Against The Machine which wasnt an actual chart-topper as such, it was anti-X-Faxtor vote, and maybe Cheryl Cole isn't quite up to the same amount of like as others)

QUOTE(King Rollo @ Feb 4 2019, 03:02 PM) *
I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Digitalking's vote after the deadline means that one song which had a place in the final has been overtaken by one of the songs he voted for. I have decided not to include his vote as I don't think it's fair that a song in a qualifying position at midnight should miss out on the final. I hope that Digitalking and everyone else is OK with this decision. I will reveal which two songs were involved at the end of the results.


a bit upsetting as I had my results ready all day (just forgot to send) but I understand. Excited for the results!

48. Tina Charles - I Love To Love (But My Baby Loves To Dance) 55 pts

Writers - Jack Robinson,James Bolden
Top points - dobbo 20,PeteFromLeeds 13,King Rollo 6


If you're of a certain age,you may remember those cheap compilation albums of current hits which were cover versions by session singers and musicians. They sold in huge amounts with some of them getting to number 1 on the album chart. People were quite happy just singing along to them even though they weren't the original recordings. Before her big break with this song,Tina Charles was one of the singers on these albums,having to impersonate whichever female singers were in the top 10. 'I Love To Love',another chart topper from 1976, picked up points from eight different voters. Pocket rocket Tina is still performing and recording.

47. Bucks Fizz - My Camera Never Lies 72 pts

Writers - Andy Hill,Nichola Martin
Top points - Good Old Days 23,Uls2000 19,King Rollo 14,AH Gold 14


We finally leave the 70s with this one from 1982. It was Bucks Fizz's third and final number 1 and is one of many good songs from them. They are the third act to feature today that won or finished second in Eurovision. I would recommend the follow up to this one,'Now Those Days Are Gone' if you haven't heard it,a really beautiful song.

Wow, the bottom five were all from the 1970s! No major losses though, it must be said. It's a little shame to see Mississippi out so early but it's no different from what I was expecting.
