cry.gif 1980s Top 40 Rate - The Impossible Part 1 cry.gif

Numbers 31, 32 and 40s

Well, let's get Part 1 of this out of the way. The voting will be different for these parts due to the obscurity of most of the tracks below. Again, you have a choice. If you're brave, you can vote for ten tracks like this:

+10
=9
+8
+7
+6
+5
+4
+3
+2
+1

More reasonably, if you know much less than ten songs, you can do four:

+10
+7
+4
+1

And alternatively, if you can only pick three:

+10
+5
+1

Well, not quite so impossible after all it seems.

Thanks again to everyone who voted and sorry for the brief amount of time for this particular rate (the current plan is to get the whole thing done by September). The No.14s rate is still going though, until Friday evening Right, let's get down to some results, starting at the very bottom (that's No.40s - obvs)

Here's those which no one had any time for:

Dr Hook - Girls Can Get It

Blue Rondo A La Turk - Me And Mr Sanchez
Holly & The Ivys - Christmas On 45
Pigbag - The Big Bean
Queen - Back Chat
The Who - Athena
Young Steve & The Afternoon Boys - I'm Alright
Roman Holiday - Motor Mania
B B & Q Band - Genie
Blancmange - What's Your Problem
Alarm - Strength
Julian Lennon - Because
St John's College School Choir & The Band Of The Grenadier Guards - The Queen's Birthday Song

But these did get some love:
