cry.gif 1980s Top 40 Rate - The Impossible Part 2 cry.gif

Time for another quickie rate (yes, I know it feels you're being bombarded with these, but you'll get a bit of a rest soon I promise). Another 'impossible' part now (well, No.21s aren't really that impossible, but that's the way the randomizer works). As before, you can vote as follows:

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

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

Sadly, it doesn't look like you've been listened to sad.gif

But it could all still change. It's agonisingly close at the top!

Man In The Mirror, UK number 2 (eventually) and US number one - the mystery is how it only got to number 21 in the Uk charts (number one in mine at the time...) laugh.gif

Vote Cities In Dust, though, it's a forgotten gem teresa.gif

Man In The Mirror would be a very meh winner in my opinion, I was tempted to leave it out as of course it became a much bigger hit in '09, but as I've allowed other past/future higher peaking singles...

Can't believe I didn't vote for Cities in Dust. oops!

The top six (in the 21 rate) are separated by just five votes (there's a couple of ties) at the moment. The Number 35 rate is also very close! Not so much the Number 37 rate which, currently, sees a clear winner. But it could all still change...

I know...I was really excited as I thought we'd be guaranteed a credible no.21 then I spotted Jacko. I've never understood the appeal of Man in the Mirror - no.21 seemed about right. Somehow, after he died, it became a kind of personal anthem for him.

Doesn't mean we should rob Furniture, The Cure, Siouxise etc! Damn, I wish I'd put Cities in Dust up at no.4 on my list now...if that would help at all?

Unfortunately, it wouldn't make much of a difference. Besides, that would be cheating laugh.gif Won't give anything away, but Jacko's victory is not guaranteed! There's still a few which could grab that No.1 spot...

Speaking of which, you haven't got long to vote people. This closes Saturday morning.
