Thanks jcg for your list, and for putting Spanish Harlem on the scoreboard at last.
Oldschool you have some interesting choices there! No less than four tracks no-one has voted for so far! :)
I've edited your votes Nicole. Sorry to see Hey Girl booted off the scoreboard. :( But great to see you haven't changed your brilliant choice of #1! :D
Keep those lists coming!
Rich.

With 10 sets of votes so far I thought I'd give you the results as they currently stand. Here is the top 21, the only tracks so far to make it into double figures.

Title (Votes)
1st. California Dreamin (71)
2nd. I saw her again (39)
3rd. 12.30 (32)
=4th Words of love (28)
Go where you wanna go (28)
6. Dedicated to the one I love (27)
=7. Monday Monday (24)
Creeque Alley (24)
9. Safe in my garden (18)
=10 Somebody Groovy (16)
My heart stood still (16)
Sing for your supper (16)
13. Dancing in the street (15)
14. Did you ever want to cry (14)
15. Got a feelin (13)
=16 Dancing bear (11)
I call your name (11)
Mansions (11)
=19 String man (10)
Trip stumble and fall (10)
Here in my arms (10)

It is terrific to see how popular California Dreamin is! Surely the best song ever recorded. A nice surprise to see I saw her again in 2nd place! I thought Monday Monday would have been higher. I'm surprised there are no votes for Dream a little dream, but I guess everyone thinks of that as a Mama Cass track. As it is technically a group recording though, it's still eligible, so hopefully it will pick up some votes soon. Thanks to those who have taken part so far. Rich. :)

Hi again Richard....wow, this is becoming really interesting to read all of the different song selections goin....
This is indeed a fine topic choice....keep up the good kudos and look forward to more results as time goes on...

Maybe you could do up a Cass song poll next ?!.. I'm already starting to formulate in my mind the songs for that, with all of the CDs I have so far on her solo stuff.....stay tuned....
