Congrats Beat! It's amazing the amount of great songs Kim Wilde has

My vulture didn't succeed lol. Although I really do like the song. And I've always liked that band name

Thanks, Adey!

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Great to see Kim finally winning a game (even though is nowhere near her best song imo). I'm pleased with Pop Muzik's showing; I wasn't sure many people would 'get' it.

Congrats to Beat, Joris and Boreas. Thanks to Adey too, as always.

Congratulations to Beat! Cementing his place at the top. I don't know how you keep doing it.

Quite some nice songs in this game. Happy mine scored a top 10.

Thanks Adey for putting up with us.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 273 – UK’s Best - Ceremony On!!!!!!!!!

i wanted to send something from kim for a long time, but she never fit somehow. i think "cambodia" is my favourite song of hers, but that was already taken. "view from a bridge" is up there, too, though.

nice to see my no. 1 + 2 on the podium as well. congrats joris and boreas

and huuuuuuge thanks to adey, as always

'Cambodia' and 'Never Trust A Stranger' are my favouites I think. View From A Bridge is certainly good though.

who nominated "cambodia" and how did it do?
there's lots of good stuff on the first two albums. i remember adey doing well with "water on glass", which is the opening track on the debut.

I don't know. Perhaps @Litotes would be kind enough to let us know all Kim's entries, who nominated them and how they did, if he has time.

Congrats

Sorry about the late reply, no time to be online yesterday.

Cambodia was nominated by the later permabanned (by request) Mike. all the way back in game 8, the first 80s theme. It finished 10th.
