    Nominate 20 songs that were One Hit Wonders

    Posting a link for each nomination would be ideal, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.

    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread.

    Staying with the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.


    To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.


    20 songs is the maximum, but if you don't have 20 anything less is fine.

    Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs

    Closing date
    I can't remember
