Postponed from February, but finally ready to roll: Part Four of our collaborative annual quest to establish the Greatest Decade For Pop Music Ever starts on Monday, right here on Troubled Diva.
As ever, we’ll be comparing the Top 10 UK singles from my birthday week (i.e. mid-February) through the past five decades, and voting for each decade in order of preference over a ten day period. On Monday, we’ll start by comparing the Number 10 singles from 2006, 1996, 1986, 1976 and 1966. On Tuesday, we’ll move onto the Number 9 singles, and so on until we reach the Number Ones.
All you’ll have to do each day is listen to a short medley of the five songs under review, place them in order of preference, and leave your votes (plus any supporting comments, should you so wish) in the comments box. I’ll be totting up the cumulative scores as we go along, using a simple system which should prove self-explanatory.
Ooh, can’t wait. Have a good weekend, and we shall re-convene on Monday. In the meantime, I shall endeavour to find something interesting to say about Pinkerton’s Assorted Colours, Pluto Shervington, Double, Technohead and, er, does anybody still remember Shayne Ward?
