I just sneaked into the top ten with my Ultravox track. 'Sleepwalk' isn't one of their most well-known songs so I'm pleased with that... I wonder if anybody has entered their most famous song in the next round!
I thought I'd sneak top 10 but sadly not, The Thorne got in there first with my first choice. But it wasn't The Cure's most famous song and it was a strong field so I didn't really expect to do amazingly. Thanks to those who voted for it.
Congrats smokeyb - even despite my somewhat disparaging comments earlier, it is a good song and did get a fair few points from me.
Well-hosted @alexrange - I enjoyed the Eurovision thing looking forward to 1981.
One of my alt choices was this which would probably have done better - surprised no-one else picked it:
