Because I'm so kind and thoughtful, you have a choice. You can vote for 20 tracks, the voting of which looks like this:

+20
+19
+18
+17
+16
+15
+14
+13
+12
+11
+10
+9
+8
+7
+6
+5
+4
+3
+2
+1

or if you can only do 10 tracks, you can vote like this:

+20
+18
+16
+14
+12
+10
+8
+6
+4
+2

And if you wish to add a -1, you are free to do so.

Hopefully, this will get more than two people doing this. You have roughly a week or so before we move on to the next part, where a random chart position will be drawn. Enjoy.

Some very interesting results so far! The track I thought would be the runaway winner is currently in 6th place, while two of the top three have surprised me greatly!

Just three points separate the top three at the moment, so it's anyone's game.

Thanks to all have voted so far. Just a couple of days left to vote before results are announced and we move on to the next one

and out of nowhere, we have a new leader

Results / Next rate will begin shortly (was going to be Monday but selfish work has demanded my presence over the next two days - i.e my two days off sob.gif ), so if any late voters fancy causing a few upsets, then you don't have long...

And earlier than planned, here's the results. The next rate will determine the best No.14 UK hit of the '80s (there's more well known tracks than you might think! and that rate will last a bit longer than this one - until Friday 22nd May to be precise) But before all that, what's the best No.7 UK hit of the 1980s?

Thanks to the 11 who voted (roughly 10 more than I expected, so hoorah!). But first, let's take pity on those which didn't get any votes at all:

Thanks again all. Who will join Prefab Sprout in the Final Top 40? We'll find out this time next week

That is a generally brilliant top 10, great taste everyone!

Very happy with that result, it's one of those tracks that you know instantly and has a quirkiness about it that a lot of the best things from the 80s have.
