Nope, sorry folks! Just checked another article on the site, and whaddaya know:
When Classic Pop announced the Top 100 Singles of the 1980s last year, we gave you the chance to vote for and decide the best tracks from one of the most iconic decades in music history.

As you were. What a shame. I guess people were crazy enough to vote Once in a Lifetime that low.
