Please note that you have a limited selection to choose from, and like Steve said, some very odd omissions, especially in tracks, where I sometimes could find the artist but not the song I wanted to vote for. (One example: "Extrordinary" instead of "Rock Me" or "Why Can't I"? Weeeeird.) So this doesn't represent my actual preferences altogether, although it was kind of interesting to try and figure it out. Indeed, not a bad five years...
