Folks, I will be sending you a copy of the 6 finalists.
 
Rate them as before - 6 being the song you like best on down to 1, the song you like least, and PM your picks back to me.
 
Hox will be gone until next week, and I want his vote to count, so the results will be posted once Hox gets back and I have all 7 contestants' choices.

Georgina,
 
I tried sending you the list of finalists, but the PM message said your inbox was full and the message can't be delivered until you clean it out.
 
What do you want to do?

I just checked my PM box and was able to access your message no problem Scar.  I should probably delete some of those 3 year old messages though.

Folks, I still have a small discrepancy with Georgina.
 
As soon as we get it worked out I will post the final results.

OK, Georgina hasn't answered (she's probably tied up with work).
 
She listed here song 1-6 instead of 6-1, so I'm gonna make the assumption that the one she listed as #1 is the one she wanted to give 6 points to, and so on.
 
I hope I'm right about this, because if I'm not it will change the order of the countdown.
 
I'm gonna add up the points ASAP and post our winner shortly.

Oh, and just for shits and giggles I asked Scar Tactette what here favorite song would be (she grew up listening to '80s music - it was her genre).
 
She said it would be a tie between Like a Prayer and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.

It makes sense that Michael Jackson would have a song that would win after all he is the king of pop

I had guessed that Billie Jean would win.  This was a fun contest--thanks for organizing it, Scar.

I was hoping for the U2 song, but Michael Jackson had far more hits in the 1980s, so the results come as no surprise.
 
Anyway, thank you everybody who participated, and if you want, somewhere down the road, Ill give the 1970s their due.
 
I would of course need to get feedback from you guys and have to know how many would participate so I don't do all the work and have say only three participants.

Billie Jean also earlier knocked off "With or Without You", which personally is my favorite U2 song, as well as my favorite #1 song of the '80s 
 
Thanks again for putting the 80's game together!  I'll all up for participating in the 70's game, and let me know if you need any help with it.

Thanx pal.
 
Doesn't it bite when any of your picks gets beat by somebody else? (it did me)
 
I'm in the process of getting my fried Dell computer fixed, and when that happens I will start on the '70s contest once I have enough people tell me they will participate.
