I think there may be a few errors in the voting, people seem to be forgetting to put You're So Vain at the top of their lists unsure.gif

I think you need to add another 20 songs to your list to get it another 20 points, just take a few nobody's given any points to unfairly, or just 2 from everyone's top 10 that arent in your list (yet). Everything in your list deserves another 20 points too cheer.gif

Ooh that sounds like chart rigging now laugh.gif (would be fairer though as everyone else has done a 50)

I felt a bit mean putting it 2nd but then... Life On Mars? is among my favourite Bowie songs

I thought we all agreed to put it at no.36?

I wasn't going to do a top 50 but then I realised my favourites would all get 20 points less than others so I bolstered it.

Number 3s - The Results!

Plenty of classics to choose from here and it was incredibly close at the top. Another unexpected winner?

Before that, spare a thought for these which got nothing at all:

Bobby Bloom - Montego Bay
