Also, it looks like 1982 has 17 and 19, but no 18? Not sure if this is a numbering mistake or if the wrong album was added to the final round.

Regarding "Blue Monday '88", I am going to combine its points with the original 1983 version. That means if you voted for the 1983 version, I won't count a vote for you for "Blue Monday '88".
Didn't "Blue Monday" already qualify for the final poll? It doesn't need the points at that point.
