Official heats for 2006 are now closed! Here is your current list of finalists, we will have a quick mop up of the also-rans tomorrow to get the last few places in the top 40 filled.

In the interests of meta-polling I draw your attention to the two three NOW albums of 2006:
Now 63
Now 64
Now 65

mathematically safe )

See you next week to review my maths skills innit. [nb: do not review my maths skills]

We are at the final proper heat of 2006; there'll be some mathematical mop-up at the end but this is pretty much the final curtain. As it's a short heat (36 rather than 40 contenders) you only get FIVE ticks. Which is a shame, as the end of the alphabet is looking great- like all good compilations it's got a dodgy indie collection at the end but there's some ruddy great hits before then.

Through from the last round were the following-
Girls Aloud- Something Kinda Ooooh (14 ticks)
Lily Allen - Smile (12 ticks) (this surprises me)
Rihanna - SOS (9 ticks)
The Gossip - Standing In The Way Of Control (9 ticks)
Paris Hilton - Stars Are Blind (7 ticks)
Jojo - Too Little Too Late (7 ticks)

(Okay, actually all of that lot surprise me)

The winner in the Heat 4 playoff was Amy Winehouse and her Rehabs. Amy will no doubt be very pleased about this victory and if you pop along to the right place in Camden you can probably join her in celebrating.

RULES )

Extra (sixth) ticks in this round go to: [livejournal.com profile] braisedbywolves, [livejournal.com profile] infov0re and [livejournal.com profile] askbask

[Poll #1737883]

This heat will close LUNCHTIME GMT on FRIDAY 6th May.

Heat 4, a battlefield on which many SOLID GOLD TRACKS lie beaten and bloodied, has left us with a four-way tie as this lot haul themselves up for another go. There can be ONLY ONE WINNER; go forth and literally pick some pop.

[Poll #1734913]

[Poll #1734914]

This poll will close TUESDAY 3rd at lunchtime-ish GMT. Effing bank holidays.

It's the penultimate Heat of 2006! I can't do maths it transpires (or rather 'didn't think about needing to do any maths when I started this') so we will also actually have a post-heat-6 poll of the nearly-rans to get the numbers up to 40 but we're getting there.

Through from the Heat Of Death:
Justin Timberlake - SexyBack (12)
Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous (11) (this rly surprises me! I thought it was the weakest single)
Taylor Swift - Should've Said No (10)
Nelly Furtado - Say It Right (10)
Hot Chip - Over & Over (9)

And there's a four-way tie on 7, more of which later...

RULES )

Extra ticks from last round go to [livejournal.com profile] koganbot and [livejournal.com profile] credoimprobus. (GUYS, it is so easy! You just write a thing in a box! You can lie if you like although obviously I'd rather you didn't and it wouldn't be in the interests of FAIR POLLIN' which might as well be our only attempt at a purpose etc. etc.)

[Poll #1734903]



Poll closes lunchtime GMT, Tuesday 3rd May.

Last time we did a qualifying playoff it was discovered, to genuine shock, that Poptimists are not secretly indie after all (we turned this diagnosis round in the next heat, regrettably) as Beyonce, Cascada, Fergie and Blog 27 all sailed through leaving guitar fiends the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to drop out.

Mathematically safe from Heat 3 are the following 5:
Lily Allen - LDN (14 ticks, to my utter astonishment)
Beyonce- Irreplaceable (13 ticks)
Cassie - Me & U (12 ticks)
Nelly Furtado - Maneater (11 ticks)
Camera Obscura (!!!) - Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken (9 ticks, good to see we are back on the indie horse)

Which leaves the following two on six ticks each and now in what Chezza Cole would accurately describe as a FITE FOR YR LOVE. Will Lupe Fiasco land a few low blows or will Cassie outrun him? The answer *seems* predetermined but this isn't a match I ever would've expected...

[Poll #1732393]

ETA: this poll will close LUNCHTIME TUESDAY 26th GMT.

ETA2: CASSIE is the winner, with 11 votes to Lupe's 10.

Time for another heat and CRIKEY is this one bringing the hits. When I was typing out the poll I found myself wincing every other entry for the last 20 or so as I realised how many MONSTROUS STORMERS there were here; I think this one will probably be very tight.

[The last one has produced a final-qualifying-place tie, so I will do another post about that in a minute innit]

RULES )

As there are bank holidays a-happening, this poll will stay open until LUNCHTIME WEDNESDAY 27th APRIL GMT.

[Also coming up for next week: TERRIBLE COMPILATIONS for EVERY OCCASION and a POLL ABOUT SUCH for every day the guvmint give us off werk, woohoo! So even if you can't remember 2006, you'll have something to tick if you're in front of a computer- they won't be time-sensitive so if you're not you can go back and do it later. ANYWAY, back to the job at hand...]

People with extra ticks this round: [livejournal.com profile] lockedintheatti, [livejournal.com profile] justfanoe, [livejournal.com profile] koganbot and [livejournal.com profile] credoimprobus. Y'all are gonna need 'em.

It's Heat #3! It's early because I've got a lot of work to do but the other poll will stay open until midday.

RULES )

Edit: Frank has reminded me to point out when the closing time for this poll is. Which is lunchtime tomorrow, 19th April GMT. (when there will be a brand new heat for your ticking pleasure)

Time for ANOTHER HEAT. Yes I am being a bit slow about this, sorry; work has got very busy suddenly just when I thought their backs were turned.

Through from the last heat are Christina Aguilera with Aint No Other Man on 12 tix, Gnarls Barkley with Crazy on 10, Kelis ft. Too $hort with Bossy and Lil Chris with Checkin It Out both on 8, Ashlee Simpson with Boyfriend on 7 and the Pussycat Dolls/Snoop Dogg with Buttonz on 6. Now, onwards into D-I!

Right, sorry this was a week delayed- DDoS attacks and real life and all that.

You have SIX TICKS plus a potential BONUS TICKY in the offing for people willing to try new things. As it is now four grillion years since the last poll, I am afraid I am not well-practised enough in archaeology to find out who might deserve them from last time so we are starting with a clean slate on that front.

More on the rules )

You have until Wednesday (13th) lunchtime GMT to vote.

After 100% positive feedback to the idea, I'm bringing this mothereffer back.

THE PROJECT:
Like all Poptimist projects, the point ultimately is to prove how great Scooter are. No- I mean, it's to work out what our favourite songs of the last decade were. With polls, naturally. You can look at some of the previous ones here -feel free to go back and do some ticking in the poll ones, although obviously nominations closed several years ago now.

THE RULES:
First we nominate top tracks of the year to be included within the POLL PHASE which will happen when I remember to actually renew my paid account next week. You may nominate as many songs which charted in the UK top 40 for the relevant year as you want but only 10 which did not chart in the UK.

Q: BUT WHY?! I want to nominate the entire of this white-label Hawaiian funk compilation!
A: Because there is, even in Poptimists, a limit to the number of things we will eventually include in a poll, also it is more fun if the nominations are things people can actually discuss- 10 extras is a good way to get people to be discriminating about what they nominate. Also there are hundreds of things you can nominate from within the UK charts!

Then we will vote on them in gluts; there is a TICKY BONUS SCHEME for listening to new stuff when it comes to the poll phase, which I will elaborate more on when the time comes.

For now, let the nominations for 2006 commence! ETA: nominations will close at midnight, Friday (25th March)

a few things that made it to the top of the charts, to kick off )

Nordic chums Robyn and Royksopp led a very close final heat of 2005 - they're joined in the next round by the Narcade Fire, Girls Aloud and Mariah. So our top 40 of the year looks a little bit like this:

Top 40 of 2005 )

Not bad at all! We'll be taking a short break from the decade polls for a few weeks, but FEAR NOT! Interim orgafun is on its way! Details coming up later in the week...
[identity profile] katstevens.livejournal.com
Sugababes, Kelly, Snoop & Justin, Three 6 Mafia and MIA make it through. Who will join them? Onto the last heat of 2005!

A quick results round-up from Heat #6: Rihanna, Humps, Ciara, Rachel and Vitalic go through; Kate Bush gets through the Heat #5 run-off. Phew! Normal service will resume next week when I don't have a massive work deadline - until then feel free to continue filling in the new favourite box to earn an extra tick in Heat #7.

If you're desperate for orgafun, head over to Freaky Trigger for all the latest Pop World Cup matches - some excellent games on at the moment.

The Arctic Monkeys trump the Futureheads to win the heat #4 run-off; Missy, Ashlee, Miranda and Sebastien are through as well. There's a three-way tie for last place (of course there is).

Now for Heat #6, which seems to be a reasonably fair representation of the year 2005. I've been waiting to use this icon for A LONG TIME.
