Welcome to another edition of Kill or Save. I suck at presenting stuff so I'll just go straight to the rules.

 

If you wanna revisit the previous games, here are the links to their respective topics.

 

60s No.1s; 70s No.1s80s No.1s90s No.1s00s No.1s, 10s No.1s (IN PLAY!)

60s No.2s70s No.2s80s No.2s90s No.2s00s No. 2s

70s No.3s

Christmas Special 2023

 

KoS HoF

The Rolling Stones — Paint It, Black

Donna Summer — I Feel Love

Nena — 99 Red Balloons

Madonna — Vogue

Gorillaz — Dare

The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl  Fairytale Of New York

Barry Ryan — Eloise

Queen — Somebody To Love

A-Ha — Take On Me

The Cardigans — Lovefool

Sophie Ellis-Bextor — Murder On The Dancefloor

David Bowie- Life on Mars?

 

We've done this 12 times before, but here are the rules regardless:

 

  • Each song starts with 20 points.
  • You can vote once a day. Since we all live in different parts of the world with all sorts of different timezones, please add a date at the top of your votes to avoid any type of confusion (e.g. 3/7/24, 3th of July, Wed 3 Jul, etc.). 
  • Each day you can give 4 points and subtract 6 points to any song on the board, you can split your points between as many songs as you want.
  • Placeholder posts are allowed, but if you don't edit your votes within 5 minutes, then the next person can go and do their votes.
  • Consecutive votes are not allowed.
  • Before voting, please listen to the songs of each round and vote according to your own opinions, don't vote for songs because they're high/low on the board or because of your opinions about the artist, only the song matters.
  • Make sure you copy and paste the most recent voter's scoreboard when you take your turn to score. For your own ease, ‘paste as plain text’ to get rid of the previous poster’s formatting. Then, delete their +/- scores, add yours, adjust the song’s points total and make your scores bold. As an example, here's a random vote from last game's finale:

 

Here are the UK No.3 songs of the 80's:

Only a few votes in and I think we've got it about right already (if Rainbow and Abba win the race for 4th and 5th).

 

Saw the Vapors (supporting the Jam), the Rats and Madness live 40-odd years ago, they were all pretty good, although the Madness gig was interrupted by a mass brawl between two rival gangs of skinheads and the group were a bit subdued afterwards, understandably.

No worries. Apologies in advance but, like Carly in the game before, I will direct every minus point of mine their way until they're gone.

 

There few enough things in the world I truly, truly hate with every fibre of my being to be able to list them all right now: discrimination, exploitation, conservatism, interminable arrogance paired with wilful ignorance, cancer, crocs, mushrooms, South Park, Love Island, people trying to force others (me) to dance, the Nissan Juke and the music of OMD.

the Nissan Joke

 

I hear you brother. Add the Cashcow from the same manufacturer.

Absolutely everyone, without exception, who drives one has to take a special test to prove they are utterly clueless in the matter of controlling a motor vehicle.

And trying to fake it by spending the whole test texting and emailing from their phone simply isn't good enough, examiners are on the lookout for this ruse.

It's the fact that they think (they being both Nissan's design department and the wazzocks who buy the cars) they've got a 'zany' looking thing with the Juke with its stupid little bug-eyes and its fucking axe-sculpted rear end. It's a sickening pile of misery and not even all that bad technically, just fucking bland. It thinks it's a real catch, and it isn't. There's no substance, no originality, no innovation, no inspiration. It is utterly irredeemable. It's the Nadine Dorries of the automotive world and I fucking despise it.

Glad to see the back of this. Don't hate it but just seeing the title written down has meant that it has been going round my head all day

Odd fixation from someone I presume is much younger than me. Hope you are enjoying the Vitality Health Insurance ads.

By about 25-30 years roughly.

No, I'm not stalking either of you, but I have an odd habit of retaining information people give about themselves here. Whilst I still can't remember where I put my car keys.....

Yeah that was the sort of gap I was thinking. I would have been starting secondary school when these songs were in the charts. I may have felt equally disparaging about songs from the 50s

Age only comes into this by way of my parents both being fans of OMD and subjecting the household to their hideous music when I was young.

 

I'm 28 this month. My playlist spans from the late 50s to last week.
