    Default Call to arms! Let's get Pink Floyd on #1 in dutch chart Top2000

    Every year the dutch vote for best songs ever (including album tracks).
    It results in a chart of 2000 songs which are all played on Radio2 between christmas and new years day.
    It's listened to by millions!

    Pink Floyd is present in the chart with 7-8 songs. Last year results:

    6 ▲1 Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 1975
    7 ▲9 Pink Floyd Shine On You Crazy Diamond 1975
    10 ▲2 Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb 1979
    39 ▲14 Pink Floyd Another Brick In The Wall
    211 ▲53 Pink Floyd Money 1973
    232 ▲1235 Pink Floyd Echoes 1971
    274 ▲68 Pink Floyd Time
    312 ▲48 Pink Floyd The Great Gig In The Sky 1973
    495 ▲29 Pink Floyd One Of These Days 1971
    1298 ▼-120 Pink Floyd Arnold Layne 1971
    1331 ▼-245 Pink Floyd See Emily Play 1967

    So three songs in the top 10! Pretty good, but this year it's time for the number 1 spot.

    So let's vote! Spread the word!

    Hi,

    I opted for Shine on and Echoes this (among some songs from other artists); last year I added as 'free choice' also Atom Heart Mother, but that did not lead to a spot in the top 2000 clearly.
    Do you have any idea how many votes would be required to get in the lower regions of the top 2000?

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Hard to say, they never tell. To get 'in' you'll have to beat these kind of songs:

    2000 View To A Kill Duran Duran 1985
    1999 All For Love Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart & Sting 1994
    1998 I Just Called To Say I Love You Stevie Wonder 1984
    1997 Sailor Sailor 1975
    1996 He'll Have To Go Jim Reeves 1960
    1995 Wooden Heart Elvis Presley 1961
    1994 Conquistador Procol Harum 1972
    1993 Vrij Zijn Marco Borsato 1996
    1992 Nu Dat Jij Er Bent Trijntje Oosterhuis 2003
    1991 De Stroom 3JS 2011
    1990 I Just Can't Stop Loving You Michael Jackson 1987

    I guess it takes several hundred votes. A coördinated effort might do the trick. I would love to get Atom Heart Mother in the list, just to show 'them'. I put Genesis 'Supper's Ready' in my vote, but that too will never make it.

    You will never win. Recruiting a Pink Floyd usergroup with a member base of 10 frequently posting individuals will not help matters when it comes to trying to throw online poles. Sorry.
