Hi Henrik,

I was looking through the site (great update by the way) and saw that this list had been missed. It has been previously declared eligible.

Cheers

Are you doing a list for the song poll? Would love to see a Kiwi boost

It might be too late now (although Ron, who’s been running it, has been loosey goosey about late entries) but there’s a poll going on for the AM Favorite Songs of All Time where people submit lists of their favorite songs that get combined into a big list.
