    Ah, drat! Too slow! First time I've ever been anywhere near winning this so typical that I snoozed and lost. Congrats @drol! The early bird catches the worm.

    Agreed. Never thought anyone could bring the same charm and wit to QI as Stephen Fry did but I actually prefer Sandi. Charming, witty, sweet, full of anecdotes and sharp as a tack, hope she's got many more years in her yet.

    Well the next warning sign will be if he doesn't deliver the Christmas Message...oh shit. Wrong thread!
  6. After that brief descent into crazy, if I can bring us back to business... 68 Baccara – Yes Sir, I can boogie  63 Donna Summer - I Feel Love 61 Rod Stewart – I don't want to talk about it / The first cut is the deepest -6 54 ABBA – Knowing me, knowing you 44 ABBA - The Name of the Game +2 42 ABBA - Fernando +2 31 ABBA - Mamma Mia 30.The Four Seasons – December 1963 (Oh, what a night) 26 Hot Chocolate – So you win again 20 Elton John & Kiki Dee- Don`t go breaking my heart 15 ABBA - Dancing Queen Trying to put Rod back in his place. I don't mind the song, but I prefer others. I suspect there's enough love in here to keep him safe anyway, but I'll see if I can do something to get 3 ABBA songs through...

    Or, it's huge news related to a legend of the World Cup. Not everything is a carefully thought out conspiracy.
  8. 64 Donna Summer - I Feel Love 64 Baccara – Yes Sir, I can boogie 62 Rod Stewart – I don't want to talk about it / The first cut is the deepest 47 ABBA – Knowing me, knowing you 38 ABBA - The Name of the Game +2 34 Hot Chocolate – So you win again 34 ABBA - Fernando +2 28 ABBA – Mamma Mia 26 The Four Seasons – December 1963 (Oh, what a night) 25 ABBA – Dancing Queen 23 Elton John & Kiki Dee – Don´t go breaking my heart 16 Tina Charles – I love to love (But my baby loves to dance) 14 Julie Covington - Don`t cry for me Argentina 9 The Real Thing – You to me are everything 4 Elvis Presley – Way down -6 My first votes in this! Haven't checked in for about a week and have discovered we're halfway through the next round! Some good songs in this. I'm a big Abba fan, and agree that Name of the Game is the best of these, although the rest are great. Knowing Me, Knowing You, Fernando, Dancing Queen then Mamma Mia I think (the last two probably just due to overfamiliarity - Dancing Queen is a guaranteed floor filler). Donna Summer captures the time it was written perfectly, proper disco classic, but not my favourite up here by any means. Got a real soft spot for Baccara's slightly broken English, and December 1963 is a tune. Most of the rest you can take or leave, including Elton and Kiki, although I love loads of Elton. I just can't get on board with those pink dungarees...

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    Glad to hear this. @YoungWillz mused I might be the man for the job at the end of the last Scavenger Hunt, and although I've never entered the DDP I did have a look and think the tasks seemed doable. But I've got a lot on this December, on various fronts, and just didn't think I could give it the time needed in the run-up to Christmas. But, equally, a legendary deadpool falling by the wayside was not an appealing prospect. So, good on @Banana for picking up the baton, good to see the DDP continuing, and I'll try and get round to entering at least!

    Ah alright, Toast, but it didn't help you win now, did it?

    Ha, I thought entries opened today and was still cursing my luck I'd forgotten to enter. Turns out I'd have been 24 hours late anyway! And both the names I was considering went within about 5 minutes - Nick Bolletieri and Rolf Harris. Good luck, all.

    Didn't mean to make it so narrow. Happy to extend to nominations on Brits if that's preferable and Biblio is willing. Realise this may be an issue with those who've already submitted however. I cannot comment, as I have yet to actually do any research into potential picks...

    Updated for Series 22, which has just finished. 6 former campmates have turned 80 this year, but incredibly not a single former campmate has died in the past 12 months, although I may have missed someone?

    Biblio gets the final ruling, but as the round setter, eliminating such categories was exactly the intention of the 'competitive' criteria. Lifetime achievement, special award, outstanding contribution - stuff they just give you for being around a long time - are not valid. Got to be won against other nominees. And I'll take this opportunity to say I'm not sure I've ever watched the Brit Awards, I just wanted a music category!
