  1. Y'all are forgetting Samantha! She'll have at least two, I bet.
    I might have tanked two of these. Oopsy.
  2. As always, I won't be 'tanking' anything. Those four acts have only one song between them that's even under consideration for a zero, and it probably won't get one in the end (I'm already giving at least four and I like to use them sparingly.)

  3. Very true. I was thinking 3 or 4 might also be considered tanking when it comes to forum faves, though.
  4. I might be the only 1 to give an 11 to an act including a male (except for @KingBruno)

  5. Steps.
  6. Fantastic list of songs though.

  7. unnamed (86).gif
    However once again @berserkboi you in particular probably have a good idea of what I will give my 11 to.

  9. Feel free to keep posting Jamie Dornan gifs in this thread. Feel VERY free.
  10. I'm doing my scores and commentary now and currently drowning in S Club 7 based nostalgia. I was one of those kids who would listen to the chart every Sunday so this is right up my street.
  11. Okay
  12. I need my fainting couch.

  13. Hi all, assuming and hoping that people will stick around for the second part of this rate, I created a poll to see how folks might feel about the best way to go about it. Your vote is appreciated!
  14. Liking the sound of this rate. I’m adding it to my ‘rates to do’ list!

  15. Might do this rate because it would be nice going through memory lane and to give Murder my 11

  16. Okay so unless I'm mistaken, I've never heard a Martine McCutcheon song before in my life and when "I'm Over You" came on a few minutes ago.


    Oh and 2000 is done with a 6.1 average - three tens - two zeroes.

    Also @WowWowWowWow I noticed you didn't break it down by year on the first page, I did that on my own. It might be nice to do that as it could break down the task for voters like I'm doing one year per listening session. Also it'd be cool to see what year does best and so on.

  17. Thanks for the idea! I’m going to be off the grid for a few days but definitely next week.

  19. Started a listen-through this afternoon, and I'm happy to report that despite my advancing years, I still know the Left Eye rap in U Know What's Up off by heart.
  20. Per @DJHazey's wise suggestion, you can see the songs split by year in the spoiler-tags on page 1.

    Also, in the grand tradition of other rates, it's time for the first installment of this rate's interlude act:
