I wrestled with both Me And I and Andante Andante as my fifth choice. Me And I claimed it because of the unique theme (and because I'm a sucker for a key change).
I also wrestled with my fifth choice, it was between "On and On and On" or "Our Last Summer", but i decide to go for the song that i listen the most on my ipod. ;)

(Also worthless bonus that cant be counted but just in case you are interested)

1. La Isla Bonita
2. Papa Don't Preach
3. True Blue
4. Open Your Heart
5. Live To Tell
I note that even if I added these points to the end result, the end result wouldn't change much. True Blue would pass Where's the Party?, but the Top 4 would remain the same.

After some heavy and soulful consideration, I have decided to go with those songs that have a special place in my heart. Those songs that I will would actually feel sorry for (!!) if I ignored. Yes, apparently I think that songs can feel emotions like people do. :lol:

1. Our Last Summer
2. Lay All Your Love On Me
3. The Way Old Friends Do
4. Me and I
5. The Winner Takes It All

Here I am thinking we will listen to one album and do a Top 5 of our favorite tracks from this current album that we are exploring.
This is such a good idea, I'm sorry I missed the first round.

Here are my Super Trooper Top 5:

1. The Winner Takes It All
2. Super Trouper
3. Lay All Your Love on Me
4. Happy New Year
5. The Way Old Friends Do

Oh I really, really love Rumours. Such a great album, every track is so strong.

1. Songbird.
I absolutely love this song, but only sang by Christine, nobody else sounds real singing it to me. It's just her song and I hate all covers of it.

2. Dreams.
Kinda feel the same way about this one and Stevie. The Corrs can do one! :)

3. Oh Daddy

4. Go Your Own Way
Seeing this played live a few years ago with that insane guitar solo was one of the most exciting, electrifying concert experiences I have ever had.

5. The Chain
EPIC!
