Thank you. But it was a joke, not a serious question.

-rehli- I did get that :lol:

6.51 - now at #10 - we're getting a little better in voting. With a better push, we should be able to get him to #1, where he deserves to be!!

No guilt - just voted again. Standing remained the same as reported by Bev. We have to do a whole lot better to get the best lyricist ever to number one! You don't have to sign up or commit to anything - just vote on the link provided on Arlene's first thread provided by b4real!!!!!

It was at 6.83 when I voted. Brought it up to the 6.88 that Bev quoted. Can't get my head around how they score this. Maybe the other people voting for these other candidates have figured it out. C'mon everyone here - we have got to do better for our man. VOTE!!! It's so easy - no strings. He needs to be at #1!!!! Give me a break - how can he be outranked by these other contestants :roll: :roll: :roll:

I wonder what is the correlation between the amount of voters and their rating....
e.g.: if 2 people give 10 to Matt Belamy would his rating be 10?!?
Then it would be much easier to take our man higher by rating the others low....
I can't find Matt Belamy.....

That is exactly what I tried - gave them 1 star several times!

First we take Brandon Flowers, then... step by step!
