How about now?
They are supporting The Killers in Glasgow....
I had to sleep! The downside of being a responsible employee. Today I work until 5, but have a Christmas dinner party with the collaegues to attend at 6.30. Lord only knows how long that will last. Then off we go on an all-day long trip with our pupils tomorrow from 8 a.m. to evening. I suspect I will be all kinds of tired on our return.
My top ten are all new discoveries and I could have done with another ten options, to say the least.
My number one choice is the same as @The Wise and I can’t wait for the new album. I have their first two albums, but then I drifted away, I wasn’t as enamoured with their second one like I was with the debut, however, this new track sounds really bloody exciting.
I love the 80s vibe from my second placed song Golden Gate. It makes me think of Bucks Fizz and how they would sound without the boys.

Winning song nominated by @Sparkly Lashes
Wow! I love that our #1 song is first alphabetically (and sung by an artist with an alliterative name). Well done to @Sparkly Lashes on such a spendid feat. :up:
And the song that came last alphabetically is right at the bottom. It's all so neat.
Congratulations to @Kristin Kringle Channing and @Ome for Christmas for having so many great songs in the final tally!!
I'm going to top that by saying that it's a song from 2018 - our first nomination AND winner from the future!
Congratulations to all the winners!
Congrats winners & winning song
Well done to both of you...
