I thought we could have our own version of the polls being successfully run in the 2000s retro forum. happy.gif

The concept is that we'll have a survivor for each of the year end top 10 singles for each year in the 90s before finding out our ultimate end of year hit from the decade. Once the 90s is done we can move to the 80s etc.

So in round one, just vote for your least favourite and the track with the most votes will be eliminated.

Get voting!

You know I think Elton is my least favourite as well. I like pretty much everything listed there though, such a good mix of styles and even the more novelty hits are comparatively decent.

I love 'Sacrifice' was such a shock to see him back at no1 in 1990!

Voted for Vanilla Ice!

Oh I am loving these EOY survivors now popping up everywhere! Bound to yield some interesting results...

Voting for Elton John here. Not a fan of either of those.

I've been waiting for someone to do this in this forum. kink.gif I look forward to the 80s one!

I've gone for Unchained Melody. The song is too overdone to be enjoyable.

There is only one substandard track here England cough New cough Order. Sorry!

To everyone thinking of Sacrifice as dull, I offer Healing hands as a great classic Elton John track - it topped my chart in it's own right in 1989 when it first came out. Both tracks are really 1989 singles reissued as a sort of "eh, you missed these hits" greatest non-hits single from a period when every Elton album didn't go Platinum, they went, as he quipped, "cardboard", he was just out of fashion.

Why did Elton go out of fashion in your opinion? From watching he old totp episodes he seemed to be fairly prolific between 1980-85 (Nikita being his last big hit of the 80s for him from memory). Then there weren't many top 40 appearances after this until 1990!

yes, not sure what happened with Elton John that he lost so much popularity in the UK in 88-89... despite releasing pretty good singles and albums
in 88 he released I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That, was a brilliant uno-beat single, went to #2 in the US but in the Uk it was a minor top 40 entry... the followup A Word in Spanish also went top 40 in the US but did nothing in the UK and that was decent too... the parent album barely did anything in the UK...
then in 89 he released both Healing Hands and Sacrifice, both pretty good, both were hits in the US but in the UK none troubled the top 40 and the parent album was just 1 week in the top 10...

good thing the label re-released Sacrifice in 1990 and that kinda reversed his fortunes...
