One Hit Wonders: First Round Nomination Tiebreaker
 
OK
Our first round of Nominations are complete, and we have a log jam behind
our clear #1 seed So from now until Sunday Night 8:pm(ish) we are going
to attempt to separate and determine the remaining 15 seeds for round one.

TAINTED LOVE by Soft Cell is our #1 seed with 6 total votes.
We have 6 songs behind that tied with 4 votes each, and then
8 songs behind that group tied with 3 votes. ... there is another
group of 29 songs with 2 votes each completing the list of songs
with multiple votes.

Instead of running several series of tiebreaker polls, we are going to try to
break up the log jam as follows. .... We leave TAINTED LOVE as the
#1 seed, but we'll do a shortened list of specific songs for nominations
from the list of songs that received multiple votes.

list of songs, and simply list your 10 favorites from this list. Beginning NOW:

Their other hits didn't make it into the Top 40 of any genre on the U.S.
Charts. For this contest, the artist / band has to have had only one
hit song that made the Top 40 in any genre, or have had one "CROSSOVER"
hit in another genre even though having (possibly) many other top 40 hits
in another genre.

Looks like you missed my awesome nominations (post #129 in the now closed thread) - Transmaniacon voted for "Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc. (he called them "The Lipps" but I'm presuming he meant the correct name ;-) ), which would add that song to the two vote category and force its inclusion here. There may be others from my list but when I saw the other vote for that one I knew mine weren't counted :-x
