I was wondering if anyone would like to compile a weekly chart based on the songs featured in the soundbites competition. I'm not really sure about the best way to do this or the maths involved but some possible ideas include...
* An (eventual) weekly Top 100 chart.
* Anyone can vote for their favourites once per week from a list which features last week's Top 100 and the previous week's soundbites (new soundbites act like new singles releases).
* Once a song drops out of the chart it can never return.
These would be my votes for last week's soundbites...
1. Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (1981) 2. Bryan Ferry - Let's Stick Together (1976) 3. Leah Haywood - Summer of Love (2002) 4. Dragon - April Sun in Cuba (1977) 5. Jordin Sparks with Chris Brown - No Air (2008) 6. C + C Music Factory featuring Freedom Williams - Things That Make You Go Hmmm... (1991) 7. The Script - Before the Worst (2009) 8. Midnight Oil - Put Down That Weapon (1987) 9. Madonna - Erotica (1992) 10. Armand Van Helden featuring Spalding Rockwell - Hear My Name (2004)

@Hijinx: Spaceman is not really a song I divide into better and worse parts, because it's so very cool. I actually like both in conjunction with each other, and wouldn't like just one or the other. That makes it hard to choose. But since I have to answer, I flip a coin and say the sped up part. How can ninjas be cooler than pirates when they get absolutely hammered in a googlefight?
This week, just about all of them. I'm not making you a list. But the chart is posted in several places, just cross-reference it with the physical singles chart on ARIA.....oh, never mind. Australian Idol - Really a talent contest?
I think you probably do, but so do I at times, so I don't mind. Which do I say more often to begin a sentence: "Also" or "In any case"?
Conversation 16: I hope this song mentions my favourite pastimes of eating brains and fountain swimming. If it does, I will make it a #1. JL&BH: New Brandon! Eeeeeeee! Girls Like You: This should be as cool as the first two singles, hopefully anyway. I like the title. Loving You Tonight: A solo male on Adam's chart, I will probably like that. California King Bed: A Rihanna rock ballad? I'll probably hate this but secretly end up kind of liking it. Rolling In The Deep: Adele's back! Nothing will top Chasing Pavements though, but I'll like it. Someone Like You: I can see now that debate will rage over whether this is better than RITD or not, and I will side with not, though I will still quite like it. Jet Lag: What an odd featuring credit. I hope it's not too whiny. Check Yes Juliet: A 2008 song just becoming a hit now. That's interesting. If You Ever Come Back: The Script, eeeee! Is Havana Brown a part of Tonite Only, or is there going to be a war over night running in the near future?
It's still good. It's just a little wet, but is it still good?
Because you were driving round town with the girl I love, and I was like, let's have sex of an undisclosed quality. If you call me something other than Mr. Flintstone, do I lose the ability to make your bed rock?
Aside from a bunch of TRASH! I haven't heard, and without me going through it, I'm going to go with something I am really tired of and say that Dynamite just beats out IGF. There'll be worse though. Is 2011 the stupidest and most unpredictable AFL season ever?
Probably pass. If you can pass in Pictionary that is. I've never played the real thing since I'm hopeless at drawing and we never owned it. If I had to try, I might attempt to draw a person stamping their foot, yelling and tearing at their hair. It'd fail. Which is the best backwards video clip ever?
Yep, I know it. Have you met Ted?
The door. People touch the knob much more often. Would you rather lick uncooked clay or a PS3 controller?
The cavity lying at the upper end of the alimentary canal, bounded on the outside by the lips and inside by the oropharynx and containing in higher vertebrates the tongue, gums, and teeth. What counts as an oropharynx?
Dick is short for Richard, and the biggest dick on the site is the discography lover with a fake daughter, so there it is. Who's our Henry?
I think it's Iyiyi actually. What is your eighth favourite Glee song?
Question obviously. When I get to them, these are fun! What is your favourite word ending in "ee"? Last edited:

I know this was not the intented use of this thread, but its title fits. So here's the Top 10 from 30 years ago this week. I know all these, except #6 which I've heard but forgotten. Some of these don't seem that old.
30 years ago this week. After 5 weeks at the summit, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts are overtaken by that cheerleader infused track 'Mickey'. Toni Basil achieved 2 weeks at #1 on the Aussie charts and remains a one-hit wonder.
Week 1 at #1
I LOVE ROCK N' ROLL
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
EBONY AND IVORY
Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE
IT MUST BE LOVE
BODY AND SOUL
BELIEVE IT OR NOT (THEME FROM GREATEST AMERICAN HERO)
Culture Club are part of the way through the 6 week run at #1 with their first charting song. Musical Youth and Goanna make up the Top 3, both with their only Top 10 hits in Australia. This week is Hall & Oate's last appearance in the Aussie Top 10. 'Out Of Touch' would just fall short peaking at #11 in 1985.
