Judging by VH1's previous similar series, I think that just refers to Episode 1--songs 81-100.  They probably split the series into 5 (or 6) episodes of like 20 songs each, and then maybe give extra time to the top 10.  I'd guess that the vote goes for the full top 100.

Uuuuhhhhhhhh............click on the little circle next to the song you want to vote for (presumably the Romantics, found under "R"), then click on the little box at the bottom that says SUBMIT.

If that's confusing, you better stay away from the real polls next Tuesday on Election Day!   Lips Sealed

Thanks to VH1 for getting the Romantics on early so I could get back to the football game.   Lips Sealed

Well, not quite the number that I would have figured!  I guess not enough people voted as they should have!

i refuse to believe that "the right stuff" or whatever it was called was more popular than what i like about you.  i would like to know who were the people doing the voting.
i was positive "what i like" would be in the top 5.
speaking of which, if you had to pick your top 5 songs from the 80's from that vh1 list, what would they be?

My Top Five:

1)  Just Like Heaven - The Cure
2)  What I Like About You - Romantics
3)  Cars - Gary Numan
4)  Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC
5)  Super Freak - Rick James


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Next Seven:

6)   Jenny (867-5309) - Tommy Tutone
7)   Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield
8)   It's the End of the World As We Know It - R.E.M.
9)   In A Big Country - Big Country
10)  Tainted Love - Soft Cell
11)  Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
12)  When Doves Cry - Prince  

Many of the rest of the songs they listed could be considered for "The Worst Songs of the '80's".

We watched it but did miss a few parts of it flipping between it and the football game.  What number was The Romantics as we must have missed it when they were on.   Cool
