100 HANDS UP IN THE AIR Boom Crash Opera
In an attempt to determine the site members' favourite AMR/ARIA Top 100 charting songs of each year (and eventually of all time), I'd like to start calculating scores for every song from submitted lists. Simply post an ordered list of any size you like, containing only songs from the eligible songs list below. Your list can be changed at any time.

A song is only eligible for one yearly list and it is always the year in which the song debuted in the AMR/ARIA Top 100 Singles chart with the following exceptions...

- If the song debuted more than 2 years after release then the release year is chosen.
- If the song does not enter the Top 50 in its first chart run but re-enters the charts the following year and makes the Top 50 then that year is chosen.
