Setherex, it's still a couple of hours left on the week 20 chart. The results may change...

In fact, I haven't voted yet, but I can abstain from voting, to not cause any confusion.

Sorry about the confusion! I suppose I should make it clearer in the main post - but I've been taking the final vote count from 19:00GMT every week, and attempting to make the new week's chart as soon after as possible. This prevents the delay of making a new topic from straying off into the vague future every week, keeping a more succinct timing to it.

Apologies you didn't get your vote in Henrik! Hopefully you'll have enough forewarning time this week :)

I just have to say, that clip for Ulrich Forman's song is amazing.

I would like to nominate 'No Matter What You're Told' - Broken Bells
And also to shout out that my wife and I are heading 'down' to San Jose tomorrow to see Queen + Adam Lambert. I was fortunate enough to experience Queen numerous times in the late 70's and early 80's. Absolutely nobody could replace Freddie Mercury for his brilliant talents. But I gotta believe that Adam will be truer to the 'Queen' mythos than Paul Rodgers ever was... :)

By the way..very cool forum Setherex. :music-rockon:

Hey there! I wanted to vote for one song, but accidentally checked the one next to it. For some reason, I am unable to change my vote - did the settings change? Or am I just on some old Flash version that won't let me change? No biggie either way!

Setherex forgot to tick "allow re-voting". I went ahead and changed the settings. I hope it's alright with you, Setherex.

Nice song from Spoon.

I nominate "In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing)" from "A Sunny Day In Glasgow".

I'll nominate a live cover of a song by One Direction: Love Runs Out. Yes really, but it's not a normal one. It's done for Dutch radio by a Dutch band Vandenberg's MoonKings, a great Led Zeppelin-like band. When asked to cover a current hit, they chose this one and it is an understatement to say they made it their own yesterday. Sadly, it's only available on the website of the radio station and probably won't get a release, but it still qualifies for this game, I guess. It's here:

http://giel.vara.nl/media/317518

In the video the song starts at 0:28. I hope it isn't region coded. If people outside The Netherlands can't see it I retract the nomination.

A reminder to all that votes will close at 19:00GMT on Saturday! Sorry for the confusing situation, but it's the only way I can keep the poll times from straying off into the distant future. As such, please get your votes and nominations in promptly! ^_^

Though it should be noted that seven nominations will be coming in from the MCChart this week. Leaves not much room left around these parts :/

An alternative would be to run the polls for six days, for example from Sunday to Saturday. That said, I'm ok with this schedule if it's what you prefer.
