The Original Songfactors' Choice Top Ten Lists 1 to 9

Recommended Posts

Yes it's a pretty good list Radhi. A few people who made nominations last time haven't done so yet, so we'll give it about another 24 hours and close the list tomorrow, then we can start voting on our Top Ten.

Thank you for picking up there's only 43 songs on the list. I hope that everyone checks their nominations to the list, because I could easily miss someone inadvertantly.

My good friend RT has added this one (his Footy Team's theme song) instead of American Pie, which appeared on the Songfacts Daily 10 the same day he nominated it.

"I will make my second nomination: AC/DC's "Thunder Struck" since that is the song that Marshall's football team takes the field to."

When do we list our top ten choices?

After Joe puts his two nominations on Laurie. ;)

We might give it another day Laurie. I think most of us probably have our Ten decided by now. I was hoping that we might attract a few more people to the thread. We're even a couple of nominations down on last time.

:P

That's RT's not mine. I didn't put that devil music. :grin:

I remember back about 20 years ago taping an AC/DC song for one of our eldest daughter's friends. I listened to the words and thought, gee are these really suitable for 13/14 year olds ? I think it was "You Shook Me All Night Long".

:P

Wow! Seems like these Songfacts fiends have minimal patience and/or accelerated attention spans :)

They're always Hungry * for Kicks *.

They never want to Wait ** or even Slow Down **

* Paul Revere & The Raiders and/or

** The Beatles tunes might flash by as future nominations.

No, you're certainly not too late, Nameless and Animal. Great to see you both here. Thanks for your nominations.

I'm just on my way out now, so I'll leave the nominations open for about another 3 hours.
