    Ultimate Number One

    Please read through this as there are some important changes for this round.



    For this round you will not be nominating any songs, instead you will be checking out the list of (already) nominated below.

    This list of 58 songs comes from the last 3 years 2017 – 2019. Each song listed below was Soap Chat’s number one of that category. Some of these songs might not have been your choice and some of them might still be on one of your playlists as we go through this round.

    If we put every number one song from 2017-2019 altogether and then vote on our favourite ten, just what song will come out as the
    ULTIMATE NUMBER ONE song?

    And while we are at a stage of not knowing which song will take the prize, you are also unaware of which member suggested this theme, so as you
    post your ten favourites to me privately and don’t forget to guess who chose this theme.









    These number ones exclude all Christmas entries and total up to 55 rounds.

    A total of
    7,776 songs have been nominated over the three years.

    Below is the complete list of 58 number ones from 2017 through to the end of 2019, excluding the Christmas nominations.

    3 artists (Enya, The Killers & Toto) are fortunate to have two songs each appear in the list.

    To make this more interesting, please vote for your favourite ten from the list provided and send your top ten to me via the private conversation function, also don’t forget to tell me the name of the member who originally nominated each song choice. Just post their name in the PM without tagging them.


    Once we have the result, this thread will be ready for everyone to post their top ten


    If you can’t find ten good songs, (shame on you) then less is fine.


    You can vote if you haven't nominated


    Last day for voting
    Saturday 18th January

    According to my excel list I've nominated 1991 songs (but actually more because some of these songs have been used more than once)

    We will ignore our own winning songs, right? Not vote for 9 of our own winning songs and add one extra that was nominated by someone else.
    Cause there is a rather obvious reason why we nominated a song, after all. ;)

    Either way, I will stay away from the songs I nominated.
