Re: Best Song Poll: RESULT !

Post by 1964white » Fri Jun 19, 2015 7:51 pm

Some interesting polls there folks :tup:

Easy wins for Asia, Deacon Blue, Edwin Starr, Richard Ashcroft, Scarlet & the Specials

Many close contests with the popular polls going right the wire....any one of three songs could have won & were worthy of winning the Byrds poll.

The most intriguing poll was pure Madness :wink: with BB, Nick & myself to vote, Night Boat To Cairo only had one point on the board, three consecutive ten pointers took the song from bottom to joint top with my votes only failing to hold onto top spot as I gave one point to the joint leader 'Embarrassment'....cracking poll

Good to see so many votes for David Cassidy/Partridge Family, another cracking contest

Thank you all for your participation :tup:
