1980s Top 40 Rate

Number 15s

* Just eight more rates to go after this (well, ten if you count the 'wildcard round' and of course, the final). The number 12s and 18s rates will appear within the next few days, before the big one drops on Friday. Yep, it's the Number Ones rate. You'll have a whole two weeks for that one (I'll be on holiday and won't have much internet access, you'll be happy to know laugh.gif , and after that I'll be working a lot more at work - not that any of you asked for my life story but that's why I want to get this all done and dusted by July), and the 'wildcard' nominations will open within the next week - (more details on that to follow). So, before all that:

Below is a chronological list of all the singles which peaked at No.15 in the UK during the 1980s. Rate your faves, and the winner will go through to the final Ultimate Top 40 (where it will join the best No.1, No.2, No.3 etc).
