Voting is open to non players as well, so please vote for your favourite songs. I would encourage as many non players to vote as possible, and hope you might join in a future contest from another decade. Try and vote for the song and not just the artist where possible.
Please vote by PM and no voting for your own act/song, failure to vote by the deadline will incur a 25 point penalty for your song.
Each year's voting will be open for 1 week, followed by a results show listing the points given for each song. A final table will show the winner for each year.
I have already chosen my votes for all years.
Tied positions will be decided by most 1st places, then most 2nd places, etc.
If anyone taking part is going on holiday during the contest and cannot vote, I will not deduct any points as long as you let me know in advance. I will pm you the list for that week to allow you to vote in advance.
Deadline to get your votes in is Sunday 8th December 10am
Results show Sunday 8th December around 12pm.

Ouch! I think I'll be lucky to finish top ten this time!
This is why I entered Keane in the last round (it was originally released in 2003 but didn't chart - although under EP's rules I wouldn't have been able to) - because I didn't want to compete with their 'other' big banger!
Two of my back ups here, and one of my predicted acts. The only back up song I have left for this year was Hives – Two timing touch and broken bones. Very strong list, going to be hard to order some of them, I hope to be Top 10, but we shall see.
