You know, this is the first week someone's already nominated something I was going to nominate.. Children of the Revolution.. So I think to myself, alright, I'll go with 20th century boy.. And then I get to RonJon.. Le Sigh.. Back to the drawing board! :)

And Carl, thanks for nominating the Winwood, he's always great in my book!

Here goes:

Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well

Stone Roses - She Bangs the Drums

All The Young Dudes ~ Mott The Hoople

;)

2. Everybody's Talkin' - Nilsson

Looks like it's going to be very hard this time too...

Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles

Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel

...and jman makes it more difficult yet...

Three words came to mind after looking at the latest lot of nominations, on top of the ones that were there when I left last night:

"THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE" ! How can I possibly narrow it down to Ten? I've had trouble in leaving ones I like out of my Ten before, but this time I'll have to leave out some of my all-time favorites.

There's just so many of these nominated songs that would probably have made #1 in some of our other Top Tens - with respect to our other #1s.

Some of these GREAT songs aren't going to make it (obviously), so don't forget you can re-nominate them. I see a couple of you have done so this time. I'll nominate a couple I mightn't even vote for! Someone else might.

Here goes...Just As A Joke....

Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus

Can't Smile Without You - Barry Manilow

I DO like both of those. I have wide and varied tastes. (Maybe NO taste ?)

rt, I can't decide which of 4 to put as my #1. :P

There's going to be a lot of good songs "crash and burn". I think I'll even be leaving out Beatles' songs ! I just hope some of the greats that miss out are re-nominated later.

Love Story " ( theme from the motion picture ) -- Andy Williams

Also titled "Where Do I Begin". Very appropriate Kevin. :)

Thanks very much Carl ! (The Chief).

I believe he should change his avatar to a more dignified one such as the example above. What do you think ? Unless one of his children drew the current one of course !

:)

O.K. That List Of Nominations 5 Posts back is updated. A couple of our regulars haven't nominated yet, if they'd like to. We have a bit of time up our sleeve, so I'll close off the nominations about 8 to 9 A.M.(my time) Friday (gee it's great being retired!) and we can start voting then. It's just passing 4 P.M. Thursday here.

Of course, ALL SONGFACTORS are welcome, and encouraged, to participate. I'll make a separate Post with our brief rules shortly.
