So we got the 'TON' up. Great work. :thumbsup:

( I don't know if that's a U.S. expression - for reaching 100 - or just one of ours?)

Are we going for 150. :laughing: Or will we start on 'GUYS' NAMES'???

Never heard of that expression before, 55.

It must be a down under thing.

I vote for starting on guys' names.

The girl list is thinning out and it's wearing me down searching for the stragglers.

can we at least round it off to 110?

Sure, a new category is easy but why deny the challenge of thinking and producing a song that's hard to remember? Especially a music thread that tops 100? Just throw it away?

Though, Brad makes a good argument but I think we should keep going. I have another 20 girl songs that charted and they ain't "stragglers."

Utitmately it's double nicky's call.
