When we think of this tag it’s a far more broader church isn’t it.

Interestingly, while researching this, in many lists online, Love Will Tear Us Apart didn’t feature at all though I’d consider it fits the bill.

I’ll recognise it as a classic but won’t be nominating it as my ten will feature personal favourites.

And I hope you will too! In fact the more obscure, the merrier.

To add, when I ran this hashtag through Twitter…

way-hey, we’ve an exclusive hashtag to work with.

Nominations will be any number up to a maximum of ten and I’d estimate the bracket commencing in around 4-5 weeks time, just as the current FavePeelSession comes to an end.


With such a vast amount of songs duplicated, I thought it best, in the early rounds at least, not to tag each nominee individually as once the draw is published, everyone will know which song is theirs as the polls go out each day. Later on perhaps things will get a little more formal.


It would be a great help if people were able to see a list with all nominated songs so that they could avoid duplicating wouldn’t it? So here is one. 👍
