I thought judging by the first 15 votes, Bohemian Rhapsody was going to set a new record high score, but it fell about 13 short of the mark.

I Am A Rock won in a close countback against Time, while Magic Carpet Ride easily progressed due to it receiving votes from 11 people.

I was the only one who voted for Robert Palmer's entry. That surprises me to some degree. But an all-round outstanding top ten!

Yes, and Darryl was the only person to vote for Rock Around The Clock - both of those things surprised me a fair bit.

Round 2 will be starting tomorrow.

There's quite a span between #1 and #2 isn't there? I'm glad to see Chuck Berry fared well enough for #2 anyway! A great Top Ten, however, and a great job Chris! :thumbsup:
