    *I have opted not to include the full ‘Light Up the World’ album, because most fans hate it, and it seems nuts to rate a full Christmas album in February/March.
    THE RULES
    • Score every song on the list between 0 and 10. Decimals are allowed but only in quarter increments (.25, .5, .75, 0)
    • As usual, you can give one song the 11 score
    • Please send the scores by PM, to me, in the order posted below, and not in any other format
    • Feel free to add as much commentary for each song as you like, either in the original PM or a separate one
    • In situations where there is more than one version of the song (e.g. the WIP Last Dance versions of Mars & Venus, Human Touch etc, the One For Sorrow US version, single remixes of Here and Now/Deeper Shade etc) give the score that you would give your favourite version - expand on this in your commentary
    • Troll votes (any ballot which seems to tank one album disproportionately, or tank everything else at the expense of one album) will be discarded
    …No more left to say. Votes due by MARCH 12th!

    PM-able list of songs:
    Last Thing on My Mind
    5,6,7,8
    One for Sorrow
    Heartbeat
    This Heart Will Love Again
    Experienced

    The lack of Light Up The World's songs still hurts, but otherwise: BRING IT ON!

    By the way: right now the Tears On The Dancefloor link just links to the title track!

  6. It should bring up the rest in a playlist! (Couldn't find the full album in one track for that one). Have re-added the link so hopefully does now.

  9. I've never participated in any of these ratings before but will definitely make sure I put effort in to do this one seeing as its Steps.

    Oh, totally nitpicking here, but Just Like The First Time is Steptacular material!

  12. Aww, I was looking forward to seeing how badly Light Up the World would do, but it’s no big deal.

  13. Went to try to put together a Spotify playlist, but the Step One there is totally different than the one listed here. #StepsRookieIsConfused

  15. Oh hi. I love your title!
     
  16. Excited for this! Also excited for @DJHazey to delve into their discography finally.
     
  17. Can't wait to see what will end up at the top spot!
     
  18. Something something, apparently our friendship could be on the line depending on how things go. *wink*

  19. I'm disappointed that Light Up The World isn't there because When She Loved Me is one of my favourites.
