-1976: More Delights to Choose from

A lot of you still haven't voted for the all-new 1976 chart. I'll still accept votes until the beginning of December and, while a fairly clear picture is already starting to form, don't for one minute think that your vote won't change anything.

If you're still at a loss for what to vote for, here's a list of songs that I don't expect to graze the top 10, courtesy of Steve W.(of Peel Wiki fame):

'Just in case you've ever wondered what the UK charts were like in the year of punk and the roots reggae explosion of Lee Perry, etc, for a laugh have listed below all the number ones that year, courtesy of these guys. Alas, I have very clear memories of all of them.'
