UK Chart Run: 37-12-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-5-7-9-13-24-31-50 (16 weeks)

Merry christmas everyone! As my special gift to you all, here's the same list yet again but this time without Right Said Fred who unfortunately were not quite sexy enough to survive the last round.

Review by PCF:

"Right Said Fred took the world by storm with this good-natured romp about vanity. Given they clearly spent a lot of time in the gymn and were happy to take the piss out of themselves I think most people found it quite a charming novelty track. Certainly weeks at number 2 on the UK charts kept it selling and selling over a good length of time. I liked it, it's still quite amusing with some great one-liners. When Richard Fairbrass came out as bisexual (with a then long-term male partner until his partner died of cancer) he was pushing 40 when he hit the big time and was happy to take it all with a pinch of salt, pushed his nude pin-up photos and laughed it off, and came back with a UK chart-topper Deeply Dippy. Now that was an annoying song! Don't Talk Just Kiss was a much better record (with soul legend Jocelyn Brown, I think) but this is the famous one they'll all be known by. As long as you don't hear it too often it's fine."

So get those festive fingers tapping on one of the voting buttons above and we'll see who's out next...

Like all the songs remaining now. Voting Bryan Adams as it's the least likely I'd choose to play.

Going for Oceanic this time. It's ok for a song I only just heard via the start of this survivor but I don't like it enough and prefer the other songs here. The rest of these are classics in their own ways as well.

Oceanic for me too, if I hadn’t heard of it until this and I know every word of the others it shows it doesn’t deserve its place here

I hadn't heard of Insanity until this survivor either but having listened a few more times I can safely say it's a banger that I'd rank ahead of all these others bar Queen!

Doh! I see the two obvious mingers have lived to see another day by the look of it!

"Bryan Adam's Everything I Do became everyones fave hate-object in 1991 as it topped the UK chart without ever selling in huge numbers, and then refused to budge for 16 interminable weeks, a Rock-Era record. It was the movie Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves that was to blame. On the one hand we got Alan Rickman into cinematic pantheons, on the other hand we got Kevin Costner being American as Robin Hood, and this Canadian future-UK-based big ballad dominating the musical year. As the film was hugely popular the record trickle-sold over a long period and eventually did the million. Me, I grew to love it and bought it, and then got bored with it, and I've never really come back to seeing it as it was when it was fresh and new. On the plus side, it kept Right Said Fred off the top spot for 6 or 7 weeks, knocked Jason Donovan off the top spot, and stopped 2 Unlimited grabbing another number one. Bryan has done way better tracks though, Run To You, When I'm Gone to name but two. He's also done way worse, stand up and take a bow Please Forgive Me. So, half forgiven at any rate.

I know this wasn't a great list but HOW is Jason Donovan still in this.
