I don't have the time to go back and add it in, but can you put Give It Up by KC and the Sunshine Band at #5 on my list and bump everything else down a slot?

Hey Moonbeam, I just realized that "Bring It On" by James Brown is from 1983.
Can you make it my new number one please? Thanks

As far as I can see, these are both from 1985. Do you have a source for 1983? If not, keep them for 1985! There were also a few songs (e.g. MJ ones and "The Look of Love", among others) that you already voted for in the 1982 poll.

Do you mean Isabelle Adjani as the artist? I can't find a version from Jane in 1983.

As far as I can see, these are both from 1985. Do you have a source for 1983? If not, keep them for 1985!
I will save those for 1985.

I've made a foolish mistake! I've missed out Monty Python's Galaxy Song! I'd be very grateful if it could be squeezed in at number 9 for me.

Re: Albums and Songs of 1983 Poll

Amazing job with the results, Moonbeam!!!

Could someone confirm that ”Reel Around the Fountain” was properly released as a single in 1983? If so, I will change it to 1983 on AM.

It seems like I was wrong putting ”Tinseltown in the Rain” on my list. It is from 1984. Can I list it again for that year?

I think it was specifically the Peel Session that was nominated here, not the album version.

I accepted it as a 1983 song on the basis of this release:

https://www.discogs.com/The-Blue-Nile-T ... ster/35790

Is that different from your preferred one? When you voted for it for this poll, were you thinking about it in terms of your favorite version? If so, it probably makes most sense to keep it here rather than delete it from this poll and vote again in 1984.

I only know the album version. But to make things easier I’m happy to keep my entry here and not vote for it in my 1984 list, as long as my points gets combined with (hopefully many) scores from others.

Yes, your points would be combined with those who vote for it in the 1984 poll. Thanks!

I have been combining accumulated points for the same song across different years for the wildcard standings. There are already 125 songs that have received points in multiple years. Some notable examples where I expect this to happen are with "West End Girls", "Walking on Sunshine", and "Here I Go Again".

Will Blue Monday '88 be counted separately?

I wonder if Discogs might be wrong here. it also has 11 '1983' entries for A Walk Across Rooftops, but even though the records do have ℗ and © 1983 on them, I'm fairly sure that it's release year of 1984 is correct, considering that's what the rest of the world seems to agree on.
