If I remember correctly from the podcast, Lay All Your Love On Me is actually one of @dUb's top five ABBA songs, so if he'd just been a teensy bit more generous then it could have had a perfect ten score. Absolutely nothing untoward about his scoring though - his average just skewed lower than most other voters, which is totally fair for someone who isn't an ABBA "fan" as such.
Oh! Sorry about that. Thanks for inviting me to take part though :eyes: and congrats on a wonderful countdown!
 
I guess the manner of the vote reveal left those low voters rather exposed.

Well done @Pingu, it's all been said already but fantastic write-ups and a very enjoyable exercise, including the syncs!

I'm surprised but very pleased that Knowing Me Knowing You did so well - and also surprised you gave it a 7 :o Do we need to do a sync listen to it? :eyes:

Also Eagle was a fantastic winner :disco:
For a LONG time in the process I was the only one not to give KMKY a 10. I had no idea it was held in such high regard!

Yes sorry to anyone who received the villain edit as a result of the reveal system. :D

I came up with it before I realised there’d inevitably be people showing up way more than others.

Each and every vote was appreciated.

I do have one more sexy stat to share. After @Ag got the top five bang on, I started wondering whose taste was most reflective of Moopy's as a whole, so I got my abacus out and worked out the correlation coefficient for everyone's scores compared to the averages.

Here, statistically, are the "voices of Moopy" when it comes to their ABBA tastes:
1. @VoR
2. @lolly
3. @Marilyn
4. @Devil
5. @Lockhart

The voter who gave the highest score to the top ten was @Jark (everything a 10 and 11 except for one last-minute 9.5), and the voter whose 10s finished the highest overall was @Sheena with all his 10s in the top thirty. @dUb and myself had all of our 10s finish higher, but we didn't award the full amount of 10s available. All of @Ag's 10s finished in the top 25 except for one that didn't make the top 50.

Anyone got an appetite for a Girls Aloud one?
I’ve never delved fully into their back catalogue so I’d definitely be up for that.

They’ve also probably got just enough songs to work for this too - you need the depth of material but someone like Madonna or Kylie would potentially have too much to be manageable.
 
Yes, it was the size of the back catalogue which made me think they were a good option.

I should have phrased that post in a way which didn't suggest I would be up for doing it, though.
