Lets start again.

yeah, everyone post thier nominations in this thread.....it will be alot easier.......what we wil do is we will all post our nominations in one post, leaving this thread open for a week or so from now.

then we will hold polls if any songs of the same letter have the same enumber of votes, otherwise the songs of each letter that have the most nominations willl automatically win the letter

cool.....post your A-Z nominations guys!
