Our first song is set:
S1T1 Blondie, “Hanging on the Telephone”

Winning 65% of the vote against 3 other options means there is no showdown final round. Going forward, any song where Deborah Harry sings lead is ineligible for consideration.

We will now entertain nominations for Side 1 Track 2. You’ve got around 48 hours.

Shame as there are some great Blondie tracks that could be nominated that are not a cover version.
No shame in a great song winning.

Oh I agree it's a great song but I think Blondie wrote better.

Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone is the clear choice here.
Oh, that's what you meant.

They did but I voted for it because it was the best song nominated (after The Selecter which obviously wasn’t going to win).

Yeah I'm not complaining that it won as such just that it's a shame it prevents further voting for one of their better songs. It's none the less great though.

Walking On Broken Glass - Annie Lennox
Weird. I remember that song being huge and being the only Annie solo song that ever got any play. Looks like it wasn't dramatically more popular than a lot of her other songs at the time: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Lennox_discography
There were a few hits as you mentioned in the next reply. None of her material tickled my fancy too much really aside from this corker.

Great song. Aimee Allen's voice reminds me of Joan Jett.

I checked discogs.com and "Lucky Number" is Track 1 and 3 on all versions … except the Portuguese edition from 1978/79. So it is technically acceptable.
