The annual Top 2000 voting is taking place!

At the end of the year, the Dutch public radio has a show based on a list of 2000 pop songs, compiled by the voters. Frank's usually in the list! Last year, Dancing Fool landed somewhere in the 600 region.

Vote for Frank! Log on here:
http://top2000.radio2.nl/stemmen/page/top2000_voorpagina_normaal, click on Verder (black button on the right) to proceed.
Choose up to 10 songs from the list at the left, (click them, then click green button Toevoegen between the two lists). Frank will be under F.
When you're done, click Verder.

Then, if you desire, pick another song. Choose it yourself. I'm trying to get Peaches en Regalia in the chart, so if you want to help, thank you.
When you're done, click Verder.

You're then requested to pick one of the songs you choose, and write to the world why you love that song. Your comment will be placed on the web site eventually, and if they like it enough, it will be read on the radio during the emission.
When you're done, click Verder.

Then the usual data: name, e-mail, home address, postal code, city.
Click Verder to proceed.

Thanks for casting your vote!

Tell me that in 50 years when they're erecting the 1000th statue of Hank Westbrook. Or whatever his name is.

You can pick 15 songs from a pre-designed list with thousands of songs on it, and 5 "free" songs. It doesn't happen a lot that a song that's not on the list can get on the list that way, but last year it happened with Slayer. The list that you can choose from has only Dancin' Fool to choose from. This is part advantage - ABBA gets relatively low because they have more than 20 songs in the list and they all sound alike so they are in direct competition with each other - but let's face it, as funny as it is, Dancin' Fool is hardly FZ's masterpiece.

What I voted for:
Frank Zappa - Dancing Fool
Deep Purple - Child In Time
Aretha Franklin - Think
Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit
Nina Simone - Ain’t Got No/I Got Life
Jeff Wayne - Eve Of THe War
Otis Redding - The Dock Of The Bay
Jackie Wilson - Reet Petite
Dave Brubeck - Take Five
Glenn Miller - In The Mood
Mark & Clark Band - Worn Down Piano
Ben E. King - Stand By Me
Michel Fugain - Une Belle Histoire
Ike & Tina Turner - River Deep Mountain High
Slayer - Angel Of Death

Own songs: Tim Curry - Sloe Gin and Dir en grey - Hageshisa To, Kono Mune No Naka De Karamitsuita Shakunetsu No Yami

Thanks for voting Waka!

There's plenty of alternatives - one I voted for today was the Snob 2000: after voting for all Zappa songs in the list there was not enough room for all the Primus in the list. That was a dilemma!

Just room for Bellerin' Plain. It was that or Pachuco. 8)

Jackie Wilson - Reet Petite How did good old Reet Petite not score? :(

Pink Floyd - The Great Gig In The Sky #286
Deep Purple - Black Night #992
Talking Heads - Once In A Lifetime #505
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven 3rd
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody 2nd but has been #1 a lot of times

1 is alas alas Hotel California, 5 is the only Dutch song in the top 10 and one time winner Boudewijn de Groot with Avond, 6, 8 and 9 are taken up by Pink Floyd (Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb, Shine On You Crazy Diamond), 7 is Billy Joel's Piano Man (probably got this high because of a commercial) and #10 is Guns & Roses - November Rain.

Shockingly the highest Beatles-song is #50 (Let It Be): the phenomenon that the Beatles-songs are all in direct competition with each other usually kept most Beatles songs out of the top 10 but not even Let It Be got in the top 20...

This is pretty interesting. I hate I missed this thread earlier.

Is John Lennon's "Imagine" on the list? I know that song is not very exciting musically, but I always thought that lyrically this was the best any Beatles member ever accomplished. Keep in mind that I don't really care for The Beatles, but I do like some of Harrison's and Lennon's solo work. And, a couple of Wings songs. That's it though.

Yah he's #38, higher than any Beatles song. You can search for an artist or song using the search bar on top. (that is, after you click away the cookies warning.)
