Hmmm. It's possible....

Been counting the votes and I've just noticed I've made a bit of a cock up sad.gif I've left out a few tracks.

Our Kid - You Just Might See Me Cry
Candi Staton - Young Hearts Run Free
Dr Hook - A Little Bit More
Wings - Let 'Em In

When I copied and pasted the whole 70s list, somehow these got left out. Apologies. If anyone would like to adjust their votes to incorporate any of these then you're welcome to do so.

I would have put Candi Staton in my votes, but I'm happy with my 50 so I'll leave mine as it is

Again, sorry. Results will now happen on Tuesday or Wednesday.

I didn't even see Candi Staton. I would have put her in my 50 but I doubt it'd make any difference so will just leave it.
