I love 'Time Of The Season' but how can I vote against probably my favourite band of all-time & their the classic song 'Street Fighting Man' :shock: I know it will no doubt leave me without a song in the decade finals as I wouldn't be surprised my other splendid nominated songs are blown out of the contest :( at least John can rest assured I played the game fairly !

It was really tough for me to vote for my own song in this case, too. I love Rod Argent, and Time of the Season is one of his very best efforts. Ultimately I voted for the Stones simply because it's so rare that I get a song to last this long in the competition.

So for the final.........

Rolling Stones

I echo your thoughts in the that I love both songs, the two best songs in this poll by a country mile imo John. A tough final for most I suspect.... I enjoy every song in this Grand Final

Once again I'll play the game fairly as in the semi-final I'll vote against my nomination by voting for my favourite song.

Street Fighting Man for me

Got to be one of ELO, EW&F or JM for me. Will vote for ELO to avoid a tie I suppose.

Songs I adore NOT nominated by myself that missed out on the Finals

60's
Byrds 'My Back Pages' Ges
Peter and Gordon 'World Without Love' Faaip
Cream 'Badge' Gandi
Beatles 'In My Life' Cat
Nancy Sinatra ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’ Mrs 64
Paragons ‘The Tide is High’ Norfolk
Kenny Rogers 'Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town' Joker
Judy Collins 'Both Sides Now' Joker

70's
America ‘Tin Man’ Gandi
Eagles ‘Lying Eyes’ Mrs 64
Melanie 'Ruby Tuesday' Joker

80's
Bangles 'Hazy Shade Of Winter' Faaip

90's
Portishead 'Sour Times' Mrs 64
Massive Attack 'Unfinished Sympathy' Joker

Keane 'This Is The Last Time' Mrs 64
Max Ritcher 'Europe After The Rain' Joker

2010 to 2019

Personal disappointments

Easily one of the best songs in this poll 'Time Of The Season' not receiving a single vote in the Grand Final, blame myself for that :lol:

'Night Porter' & 'Dum Surfer' pipped in the Decade Finals

One of the great rock classics 'Marquee Moon' falling over at the first hurdle :(

Missed your "blunder" so not sure what this is about. So Texas is back in, and I can have another 90's nomination ?

Norfolk's nominations were in the wrong decades so all songs drawn against his noms are re-instated into the current poll

You also have an additional nomination to enter in whatever decade you wish to use as a freebie from me.
