MFSD Track 30 - Voting

Don't vote for your own nomination and please check back to ensure you haven't clashed. 12 nominations = 4-3-2-1 again by Wednesday evening (16th July 2014) at 10.00 pm. No late votes counted.

Can you please close this one for me Deputy Liq? I've amended the Nom and Vote bit...the point's been made or missed.

NOMINATE AND VOTE!!! Voting process is only fair if all participate. It doesn't take long to vote, if you've not got time to add them, just post them and it will be done for you. It's not necessary to nominate to vote.

Tim, your point regarding votes is indeed valid - calling it as joint winners for your nom and Martin's on track 29. You're not alone, very few others seem to read the OP...! ;-)

Very many thanks Phil for all of your legendary playlists and the assistance you've given us all...! 15 out of 15, really glad you weren't the one left behind by this thread recently dubbed as ''one which appears to positively fly by as if it were going out of fashion''!

And speaking of flying that's exactly what I'm going to do, but first...

The final playlist:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc1flR0LgwY&list=PLqLCaKRzPEG56D8ReNeZksxWh6iDsaX51&index=1

I Love Music - The O'Jays

Hi Lenny - Al is off on his summer hols but is sure to be back with us later in the year. October?

If your music tastes extend beyond "Motown/Funk/Soul/Disco" join the rest of us over on the Music forum where we are currently nominating and voting on themed threads (you would be welcome to include tracks from soul/r 'n' b or indeed any genre). We are currently nominating alternate versions of well-known songs on the Plugged/Unplugged theme (our 15th theme):
http://www.amazon.co.uk/forum/music/ref=cm_cd_tfp_ef_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=FxKJPF2WTXANLI&cdThread=Tx1MVXSS5UVBAPW

Upcoming themes will be:
16. London - David E
17. Farm/Farmer - Johnny B
18. Criminals & Crime - RedAlFire
19. Foreign Languages - RAB
20. B-Sides - Helen
21. Songs that have been banned (by the bbc etc) - nic

We are also nominating and voting on individual artists. It started by being lesser-known acts but has expanded to include anyone and everyone. I see you have already nominated a track for Goldfrapp. You can go to this thread to nominate an artist of your choice - be sure to go to the last page and copy/paste the list with your choice of artist on the end):
http://www.amazon.co.uk/forum/music/ref=cm_cd_tfp_ef_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=FxKJPF2WTXANLI&cdThread=Tx2QAWGECQQ7HMX

and here's a list of artists who have already been examined:

Thanks to all who took part across our 30 tracks.

Hi I'm Troy McClure! You may remember me for such quality Amazon forum threads as...
:-)

Seriously though, well said Lenny. Many of us miss young Nephran but I'm sure if he finds his way to this page and reads your kind words he will be immensely heartened by them ;-)

Well now that's a mighty fine thing! Amazed Harry got top spot as felt sure Ben E would take this one. Thanks to all who fully participated, and a big well done to those who latched on and kept with it all the way. Commiserations to KJS and Johnny Bee on this occasion, both of you have nominated some good stuff over the past 15 tracks (as indeed have all the participants).

If you don't believe it, go check the nominations list!!! Superb!

Deputy Liq...many thanks for your efforts in tidying up the Tamla jailhouse and putting everything in order.

See you all again on here fairly soon....hopefully for another 20 to get us to the half century! Not doing bad for an oft maligned 'little' thread. Thanks again and happy summer (you'll note the temps have climbed since my visit - and due to get even better at end of week as we invade again). :-)
