Top Songs Of The 80s (Opening Round 3 Of 24)


The third round of the Top Songs Of The 80s is complete! Points were given on 20 ballots for the order the songs were turned back in. 6 points for the 1st place, 5 points for 2nd place and so on and so on. NO ORDER ballots were given 3.5 points a piece.

The Beastie Boys climbed to the top of the Division and the overall leaderboard with (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!) (The Beastie Boys). It received 6 First Place Votes and is currently #1 on the semifinals list bringing in 63.5 points on 13 votes. All of the next four songs that made it in appeared on 13 ballots with Fall On Me leading the way for second place. And the last song out, She Drives Me Crazy, missed the cut by just 3.5 points despite appearing on four more ballots than Prince's contribution this week.

The songs that move on will move to a semifinal round of 192 songs (12 rounds) in which the panel will narrow the songs down to a March Madness style group of 64 (head to head).
