MFSD Track 20 - Voting

You all know the drill, usual rules apply - don't vote for your own nomination and please check back to ensure you haven't clashed (as unlikely as that seems). Settling now at just the 11 nominations (and thanks to those who have imbibed) and once again it's (just) 4-3-2-1. Please append your votes to the songs below and do so by Thursday evening (5th June 2014) at 10.00 pm. No late votes will be counted. Get down!

Continued thanks to Phil for his now legendary playlist...and for adding my tardy nom to it!

The diversity and quality of the lists thus far has been worth listening to, we may not have the quantity but there's no doubting the quality.

Please vote from the following...

It's Time For Love - The Chi-Lites
Blind - Hercules And Love Affair
Walk Away From Love - David Ruffin
You Can Do It - Dobie Gray
Afro Puffs - The Lady Of Rage
Open The Door To Your Heart - Darrell Banks
Roof Garden - Al Jarreau
You Got Me Dangling On a String - Chairmen of the Board
What Condition My Condition Was In - Betty LaVette

I saw the extended trailer for the James Brown film - "Get On Up" - on telly last night and it certainly looks interesting.

I'm not sure if "By the makers of "The Help" is a selling point tho.

It's Martin's tablet's predictive text again....and it dropped a point off at the end too.

Martin, it might be easier all round in future if you post your points awarded and ask the next poster to add your scores mate.

I'm sure I changed that on the nomination list JB...or maybe it was on the reference list of nominations. Anyway, far as I know she's meant to be Bettye.

Gotta be a whole lot easier for you mate, and others do the same if posting from phones, tablets, work or dodgy laptops. Probably save all round. :-)

Thanks Jemma. I don't know who nominated it previously but I felt it was deserving of another go. Those Temptations boys sure could sing.
