in week #35 we had 56 nominations:

pre 50's : 1 (2%)

50's : 1 (2%)

60's : 13 (32%)

70's : 23 (41%)

80's : 8 (14%)

90's : 9 (16%)

and in the Top Ten:

60's : 2 (20%)

70's : 6 (60%)

80's : 1 (10%)

90's : 1 (10%)

three Bob Dylan songs, and none of them could make it to the Top Ten - could it be that multiple nominations by the same artist DO indeed split the votes!?

and as far as I remember this is the first time we have a song by a complete fictional band, Driveshaft... :P:)

Well who would've thought that these two songs of all things would get the #1 and #2 position... and it was so close too ;) :grin:

But it's the first time we had a #1 from 1969...

Much more interesting, imo, the rest of the list is very close. #3-5 even have the same amounts of points... :)
