*Seems like everywhere but on AM this is noted as a 1984 song.
I didn't vote for West End Girls in 1984 because the original 1984 single is ridiculously inferior to the 1985 re-recording.
Maybe, but they are going to count as one entry anyway; at least I guess.
That's correct - both will count toward a singular entry.

I can only find sources of 1986 for this. Did you perhaps mean to include the album Jaws of Life instead?
Sorry about the error. Please instead include:

The final poll of the 80's could be a top 200
150 is a strange number

Re: Albums and Songs of 1984 Poll

The first decade polls had 100 albums and songs. We then increased the nominations to 150, to make room for more than 10 albums/songs per year and get a more definitive top 100. I think I also once suggested that the decade poll countdowns should start from 100 (down to 1), creating some excitement during the presentations about which albums/songs that made the list and which didn’t.

I like surprises

I also prefer that the worst ranked songs do not appear at the beginning of the presentation

Funny that you mention this: I made this post asking for feedback about 2 possible ideas with the poll, one of which was an expansion of the qualification pool.

I also like Henrik's idea of not including the lowest ranked songs/albums in the overall presentation to add suspense.

EDIT: linked to a new thread rather than a post in the overall 80s thread.

This one's from 1990, so I won't count it.
Father2TheMan wrote: 279 | King | The Taste of Your Tears
287 | King | Alone Without You
296 | King | Crazy Party
These ones all seem to be from 1985, so please keep them in mind for the 1985 poll!
Please omit all 4 and just move everything up.

Also I just noticed a duplicate for Queen | Hammer to Fall. Please keep it at #223, delete #300 and move everything up.

Thanks!
