80s : 1 (10%)

90s : 3 (30%)

Three 90s songs in the Top Ten! When was the last time that happened? (or is it even the first time?)

in the whole list there were a couple of songs with the same number of points - so I had to use our tiebreaker rules - nothing special so far, but the 'race' between "I don't like Mondays" (#5) and "What's Up" (#6) was the closest I ever had:

- both songs (and "Lump" on #7) have all 51 points ,

- next decides the number of people who voted for it: that was 10 people for all three songs,

- next we decide with the number of #1 placements it has recieved, then #2 places etc.:

"Lump" was nobodys #1 so it was the last of this three, but look the points for the other two:

"I don't like..." : 10, 9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point

"What's Up" : 10, 9, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2

so if only one person had put it on #6 instead of #7 in their Ten, it would all be different :)
