Whilst we want to keep this Thread free for statistics and restrict other Posts here, I think this reinforces my statement that many people would vote for a track of Robert Plant burping, Farin. :laughing: I don't think I've ever heard In My Time Of Dying.

(Please post any replies to my cynical comment in the current Top Ten).

You can say that again Farin. This is my first top slot in the top tens. :happybanana: I could have done this a lot earlier if I had not to refrain from nominating the Beatles. I guess this was a last shot at too much of a good thing.

Hey Porter got no other vote 'cept mine, however I am very glad that CASH made it into the top ten with OLD 55's Ring of Fire
