Spacepig says:
Hmm, I don't mean to be a killjoy or anything like that but, can I ask, just what is the point of this thread? I mean, the rounds are quite good, leads us to songs we don't know, or ones we have forgotten. And the voting just adds a little bit of competition to it. But all these ones have been up recently, we know them all already. Or are we trying to find a best of the best among our little congregation's tastes?
Sorry for asking, but I can see no reasoning behind this one.

For me Spacep it breaks up the routine and gives a different slant. Although these are the top 29 songs by votes, not all of them are winners. May just happen that the one that wins this was an unlucky runner up earlier.

LO'M - what do you think of doing a Friday 13th one? Because it is a Leap year we get 3 of them in 2012 in January, April and July. So can do one this week or wait until July.

Sorry Spacepig I was wrong - the one at the top still got the nod.

Have no idea why though...except for the video maybe?
