    I would post a list of all artists already taken, but I don't want to spoil the surprise when the Groups are announced.

    Needless to say its pretty much gonna have everything you could want from an 80s music lineup.

    Keep the entries coming people..... :50:

    We have 16 at the moment, nice easy number to work with so I will crack on with the draw for the Groups tonight, unless anyone else wants in...

    Happy to take more entrants if anybody fancies :50:

    Round One Songs

    The theme for Round 1 is, there is no theme!!! So just fire me a song of your choosing to kick off your campaign, oh and make sure it was released in the 80s of course! But remember, once a song has been used you WILL NOT be permitted to use it again during the remainder of the competition.

    My inbox is open, so if you have not already done so, PM me your song submission from YouTube and let's get this party started, hopefully by Friday night so we can get voting over the weekend :50:

    Thanks in advance
