Hey, you guys read my mind! I was just going to come down here and note that any other nominations need to be posted, cause we need to get this thing going, voting wise. Great minds, and all that ... ;)

I'd like to start the voting tomorrow or so, so if you want to change a nomination, or if you haven't nominated yet, please do. Thank you! :)

I thought about nominating "Sexy Boy" by Air, but in the end decided against it in favour of:

Human Behaviour ~ Björk (1993) Video

and secondly

not only the first single of the band, but also the first single that put a genre in the (so called) mainstream in the UK

Anarchy in the U.K. ~ Sex Pistols (1976) Video

This list was especially hard because I like every song that is nominated and I've heard them all before.

I almost didn't vote for Hendrix's 'Hey Joe' because that song is a cover version, which partially defeats the purpose of this special.

It's not fun cutting out so many songs that I like. I like the entire list, but limited it to 10 classic debut's. :P
