    I will be sitting this one out and letting you guys decide. I hope everyone submitted their answers in the format I wanted (1-10 in order of pref.) otherwise it's all messed up. Scores added up manually so I hope I made no mistakes. Too late now and doesn't matter anyway as it's just a bit of craic.

    First reveal on nuboards (which sucks) so fingers crossed it goes smoothly.

    Coming up.

  • Thanks for running Reberetta! Definitely my winner :D





  • Nice unexpected reveal - cheers for running Reb and glad to see you back.

    Can't argue with the winner, its a cracking song (even if I didn't award it any points ; thats only because there were a lot of great songs in the mix though, and a little bit because I had to listen to it about a billion times for Leaving Cert Music so some of the shine has long worn off for me).





  • Thanks Reb, definitely a worthy winner - a perfect classic of the times imo. Although Simple Minds is a worthy second!

  • Thanks Reb. Nice twist at the end. I'm happy - I gave my 12 points to the ultimate winner and my second choice ended up in third place.
