Thanks for voting RonJon, Batman and CeeCee. :)

We have votes from two thirds of the eligible voters now !!!

Yes, normally you'd put your own at #1 and #2, unless as CeeCee said someone nominates songs that you like better. The same thing happened to me.

BTW...can you type out the word "respect" without singing r-e-s-p-e-c-t???

Good point RonJon. :)

I didn't put it in my Ten because I've been listening to it for longer than any of you, and I suppose I've grown a bit tired of it. Same with Unchained Melody, which I just couldn't leave out. If I was voting for what I considered to be the BEST songs in the List they'd have been at the Top. But I voted on what I'd like to hear now.

I was all grown up at 16 when you were born CeeCee. :grin:

I have one whole shelf of 60s 'Various Artists' Compilations CDs, and I think Respect and Unchained Melody are on nearly all of them. Except for Respect Aretha was never that big out here, but when I heard Chain Of Fools again in the movie "Michael" I went out and bought her "Gold" Double CD. Love that song !

The Eurythmics

I think it's the same as (The) Sweet, but was wondering non the less if they're known as "The Eurythmics" in Australia and/or the USA. I've never heard it and I'd like to think that in whole Europe they're just "Eurythmics" (at least in Germany they are)...

I can't sleep very well (4.30 am here) so I wandered out to the computer. I see I've made a couple of errors with "The"; it's just Eurythmics and I should have The Kinks.

...............................................

I'll probably close this Top Ten off in about 5 hours time, as almost everyone's now voted. Young "nicknameless" (sex unknown) hasn't been back on Songfacts since he/she made his/her nominations and I see Phil's online now. (He was - haven't heard much from him lately). Thanks everyone.

.................................................

Good unholy hours of the morning all. I'm going to go back to bed now.

:sleepy: :sleepy: :sleepy:

I've just invited Joe to have a vote, because he wasn't around when we were doing the nominations. I'm sure everybody will welcome this wise man's input.
