Yes yes I know, yet another one, but we're speeding through these now so we can concentrate on the Top 20. Just two more 'Impossible' parts left after this. Part 3 closes on Tuesday, while this one should close on Thursday.

You know the drill by now. You can vote like this:


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

If you know much less than ten songs, you can do four:

+10
+7

Oops, just realised I forgot to add The Clash - Rock The Casbah in the No.30s list. Soz.

If you wish to vote for it, no need to edit what you've already voted, just post how many points you would have given and I'll add them in. Thanks

For the record, it would have got my +10

I'd prob have given it a couple of points but as no-one is giving any love to Elvis, Beatles, Monkees and assorted oldies bar me, and it would knock Elvis out my list I'm giving it nada! tongue.gif
