No-one's nominated anything from the range I plan on using (9825-10000). I'd be fine with the concept, but it's a question of whethe...

Re: AM songs with more than one popular/acclaimed version

I feel like the Fatboy Slim remix of "Brimful of Asha" is the popular version, and as before, I'd argue that the new version of True Love Waits should count as a different song than the 2001 live version (or at least be treated as the primary version).
