Is the next special going to be Christmas Songs?

I think not, unless everyone just can't stand not doing them. We've done them a couple of times, as well as holiday movie themes in SF Choice.

Maybe party songs (as in holiday/new years parties?). You know, "get your rear up and dance" songs? But maybe we'll just do something totally unrelated to the holidays at all.

Yeah. There's just so many holiday songs even worth listening to. I don't know about anyone else, but by the time the holidays are over, I hate Christmas music :laughing:

Such a tragedy.

That you'd forget to leave something off

;)

I've had worse happen...some forget to leave things on, rarely, though.

(the obese plumber trying to reach for the drain while wearing "hip-huggers" comes to mind). . .

You misunderstand. I didn't forget to leave anything off. I was unable to vote for as many songs as I'd have liked to. Which actually is a small tragedy, or at the very least unfortunate. :P

For those who still want to vote and are wondering if they have time, this top ten will close sometime tomorrow late-afternoon/evening (East coast time) because today is my 21st birthday and I have some bad decisions to go make.

sorry if this is the wrong thread but... I had a thought. (ouch)

Why not a sort of honorable mention Christmas TT (alongside the regular) for the Christmas songs that have been nominated so far but not made the list? Sort of like the Ultimate Tens, only Christmas.

Just a thought.
