A very healthy 18 nominations for Sweet, my choice for the seventh nomination of this current round, and a personal thank you to those who have contributed to an enjoyable and varied list.

Please append your votes 4-3-2-1 for your favourite tracks from the varied selection below of Sweet musical offerings.

Voting closes 10:00 sharp on Friday night (that's 24th January 2014), no late votes counted. Remember not to vote for your own nomination and check back after voting to make sure you haven't clashed.

Getting the ache of not being able to furnish the playlists (on youtube's blacklist for another 4 months I'm afraid) and sadly no offer this time so it's back to the list of links...sorry!

If anyone finds it tough to listen to all the tracks within the allotted time please post and I'll extend the closing time.

Plenty of good stuff to listen to, from their glam rock A sides to the harder raunchier B's and album tracks, please make your choices from this list (which includes Steven's nomination even though zon have splodged him again)...

Voting over and even though most posts when the nom was put forward disparaged the glam side of Sweet, it is the glam numbers (albeit some pretty good ones) that scoop the pot as Collette's nom of tech's favourite pastime 'Ballroom Blitz' runs away with it on 24 points, double the joint runners up Blockbuster and The Six Teens for Sj Brooke & Tikka (nice to see you on here again) respectively with Grimmy's Hell Raiser a smidgeon behind.

Well done Collette, seems you're now due to splash about a few alco-pops laced with extra vodka for your sins.

Thanks to all who nominated, a little disappointed that one of Sweet's more rocky numbers didn't make a better showing but the list of nominations was a damned good representation of the band so can't ask fairer than that. Hope you all enjoyed it.

Next artist will be starting soon....

Cheers Alan. Pear ciders all round. :0)

Well done Collette, must admit I got into pear 'Cidre' in a big way when back in the UK last summer. Cafe Rouge is a favoured eating place when travelling as their food is flavourful and consistent, a Cidre or 2 for refreshment and a nice bottle of wine...perfect! :-)

Aldi does a nice 2 litre bottle, Alan. Stella Pear Cidre's nice too. Less sickening than some of the others. :0)

My sister & I like Café Rouge in York, their Croque Monsieur is yummy! We don't touch the cider/cidre though, having both had unfortunate experiences when we were young.

..and a mite more powerful methinks! Having had a couple in Bella Italia in Liverpool and York (as well as Cafe Rouge in Chester, Sheffield, Newcastle, Liverpool, Durham - and York too) I can honestly say it travels well...hic!:-)

I'd like to be able to add Prezzo to the above list but, having had 2 goes at them, whilst the food is quite good (if a bit pricey)...why are the staff so pushy? You've just sat down and the waiter/tress appears, no 'would you like a drink while you read the menu', straight into 'are you ready to order?'. Once the meal(s) arrive, you've no sooner picked up your cutlery than he/she is back 'everything is ok with your meals?'. 'How would I know? I've not tasted it...!'. Jeesh...!!
