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).

The Beatles got their #1 with more than 100 points (again ;)), and the Stones have two songs in the 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
