Nos. 30-21 of your tracks of the year.

And a special bonus round of applause to two tracks from last year's Top 10 which qualified again this year: Miley Cyrus' "See You Again" would have come between #25 and #26, and M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" between #24 and #25.

The Tunes! )

Tomorrow, things get see-ree-us as we enter the Top 20.

Here's #s 40-31 of the poll: will it be as controversial as yesterday's Funky House Wars? Only YOU can decide :)

re. embedding: I've decided to keep on with the embedding where possible - people seem to like it on the whole. Apologies to anyone for whom this is an inconvenience - if it's a problem it's apparently possible to turn embeds off in your LJ settings.

And now - onwards!

The Tunes! )

No.s 30-21 tomorrow! (at a slightly later time, I have a meeting in the AM)

THE MAIN EVENT! These are #s 50-42 of the Top 50 as voted for by you (there's a tie at #40 so we'll see those tomorrow). Thanks to the miracle of embedding disabled by request you'll have to investigate some of these away from the comforting womb of LJ - sorry, it's The Man's fault.

The Tunes! )

Check back tomorrow for #40-31!

[Poll #1312190]

Remember to get your votes for the REALLY important poll (Top 10 Tracks) in to leagueofpop@gmail.com. I'm extending the deadline on this to the REAL ACTUAL end of the year, because I've realised I'm going to be incredibly stuffed for time next week whereas the first week of January is likely to be pleasantly quiet...
