To explain how the voting works, we each picked our 10 favourite songs of the year, then for each list we each ranked them 1-10 giving 10 points to our favourite and 1 to the one we liked least on each list. we also had a bonus point we could assign to one song on either of the other people’s lists (So Colin could only assign the bonus point to a song on either Tracey or Ian’s list). Colin’s wife then added all the points up and we didn’t find out the order until we were recording, so all the reactions you’ll hear are genuine.
Now admittedly, we are a little bit brutal to some of the songs on the list, but please remember that to be in the episode they have to have been in one of our top tens of the year!
