Hmmm...probably not but it depends what the rest of the nominations were. In a weak game I might have. I would have been more likely to give points to Woman from Tokyo though. And I would most definitely have given lots of points if someone nominated their early song "Hush". That's a song I actually love a lot.

Oh yeah, I was thinking in terms of years when I mentioned that. Ooops. Well the year Smoke On the Water came out wasn't a bad year for music at all. I'm sure you will find something great. I have a much tougher year. In a way that is good because it means I can easily narrow my pick down to like 25 songs. If I was born in 1966 or 1967 it would be a nightmare as there would be 100s upon 100s of songs to consider.

1986 was a terrible year in music.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 26 – Songs From Your Birth Year - Nominate

One song released in 1987 from my list - makes things very easy (and actually quite appropriate given various … things).


If we're all giving away our years of birth this poll might not be very anonymous again

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but I haven't really found much to choose from yet, some attempts turned out to land in the wrong year. I rarely associate songs with publishing year anyway. "Smoke On The Water" I got from a list of the 10 best songs of that year, until then I didn't realize it was exactly as old as me. Will have to go through my CD collection to look at release dates there.

I think most of us would prefer the years some of the younger (than us) players are struggling with, the 1986 and 1987s mentioned earlier would not cause me any problems I figured you'd be an exception

I think it would be easier to pick songs from, say, fifteen years after you were born

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 26 – Songs From Your Birth Year - Nominate

I have a question. Must a song be recorded or released in my year of birth? Cause, I have a song released year earlier and became a hit year later

Or it should be a year of releasing a single or the whole album?

I wanted to skip this game, but I found a nice song from 1994, so I'm in
