Are we saying our choices are from when they were released on CD cos I went to see '' Closer to Heaven '' which of contains the wonderful FAOU in London in August 2001 and I have the soundtrack CD released in the same year.

Tell me, tell me ???
Good question, actually. I put it in the 90s list, because the Pet Shop Boys version of the song was part of the Nightlife recording sessions. The track is unreleased on cd, but it was released as a free download on their official website, when you signed up as a member. This was probably in the year 2000.

Early results indicate the following:

PSB Preference.JPG (38.89 KiB) Viewed 771 times
For example, Ramzy's PSB preference ratio to Undertaker's is 33%.

I'll update this in stages throughout the next week or so...or for as long as people add their top tracks of each decade.

Yes I remember that free download FAOU which if my memory surves me correct was actually in the summer of 2001.

Well, in that case I'd have to correct my list, which I will gladly do, because I made an error: I forgot "DJ Culture" in my list of 90s songs.

So I will move "For All Of Us" to the 00's section, replacing "Here", which I'm dropping.
In the 90's section, I will add "DJ Culture".

I would love to edit my list, but it would screw up Dricos statistical project, so I won't.

Go on, edit it. dVTB has already changed his, so you might as well join in before I go too much further.

We both know the answer to that, but I'm far too polite to sneer at your mental inferiority. :wink:
