1970s Top 40 Rate

Number 19s & 20s

Usually for a Top 20 position rate, a +30 scoring system is in place. You still can, if you wish. However, only 38 tracks peaked at No.19 during the decade, and again, just 38 peaked at No.20. So for this round, an extra smaller +10 system is added. Otherwise...

Below is a chronological list of all the singles which peaked at No.19 in the UK during the 1970s. 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 etc).

been counting the votes so far and nothing in either the number 19 or 20 categories have got nil points - a first.

By my calculations, just dandystar and Leonardo left to vote in this, and as it's very close at the top in both rates, it looks like they'll be deciding the winners!

I think everyone has voted in the number 3s rate, so the results of that will be posted early, probably Wednesday or Thursday

As things stand, the final top 40 reshuffle will take place in just over three weeks. A 90s one will follow but not immediately after. Think we could all do with a break! laugh.gif

I quite like the Billy Joel track in the first list but I don't think I know hardly anything in either list aside from that - I think I'll abstain on this occasion as I'll probably only significantly skew the results for no good reason! biggrin.gif
