The Second Songfactors' Choice Ultimate Top Ten - Round 2


Recommended Posts

[big]THE SECOND SONGFACTORS' CHOICE ULTIMATE TOP TEN - ROUND 2[/big]

- No nominations are required, as the songs have been selected from our 25 top tens.

- Voting rules will be exactly the same as the normal top tens - rank your favourite songs in the list from 1-10, and 10 points will be given to your number 1 song, 9 for number 2 etc.

- We have decided to restrict eligibility to vote to only those people who have nominated or voted in at least one of our Top Tens. We think that's fair !

- We realised it would be ridiculous to expect people to come up with a top ten from all 250 songs, so I have seeded the songs and split them into fair groups.

- The results will be announced in about a week from the start date of this thread.

- This is Group 2 of 5, and this group contains 50 songs. I will then combine the five top tens together to form a group, and then we will vote on these songs to form the Ultimate Top Ten.

I could easily make four top ten lists from these nominees. Whichever ones don't make it should be thrown in as the next group from which to select.

1. This was a brutally difficult selection. I think we should adopt Uncle Joe's suggestion and throw all the songs from this grouping which don't make it, into the pool of songs for Round 3.

1. Refugee - Tom Petty

2. Do It Again - Steely Dan

3. Do You Believe In Magic - The Lovin' Spoonful

4. Happy Together - The Turtles

5. Candle In The Wind - Elton John

While I am sure some people do not like seeing the number of great songs that miss out on the Ultimate top tens, I believe this suggestion will make things more difficult for everyone, especially me. 50 songs definitely seems like enoough to choose from, and those that miss out in the group stages probably don't stand much of a chance of making the Ultimate Top Ten anyway. I am trying to make the Ultimate Top Ten as fair as possible without making things needlessly complicated, and personally I think this suggestion does make things a fair bit more complicated.

Chris went through and graded/seeded every one of 250 Songs and aportioned them mathematically into 5 Groups.

He'll publish that list after THE second Ultimate Top Ten has been decided. I think that when everbody sees the way he's prepared it they'll understand why it has to be done on an elimination basis.

Carry on Chris - you're a beauty. I couldn't even pass Advanced Maths.

Love you all! :bow:
