There are now 6 groups of 10 songs each… We have the wonderful (awful) task now of picking just TWO songs from each group.  That’s right… Pick YOUR favourite TWO songs from each of the 6 groups… For round 3, we will then, by the most voted for, reduce our 60 to just 12!!!!

    Thanks Luc, Ronny and Tamas – interesting bunch of 60 songs

    • Luc Spencer-Gardner says:

      I agree that it was a great selection of songs! Very difficult to narrow such an extensive list down to 60… But here we are! This next round will be very interesting.

  2. Roy van der Merwe says:

    Only two of my 20 made it and then they ended in the same group!

  3. Michaela Sowden says:

    I had more luck, Several of my songs made it. The voting is difficult but in the end decided to listen to my inner voice and picked those songs that immediately come into my head. Love the com!

  4. Thanks for organising this wonderful but challenging competition. I was pleased to see many of my songs were in the groupings but when 3 are in some groups it does make it a tough choice! I see that the 1990’s were lean years for good songs according to the lists.
