Didn't want this list to be buried in one of the random rounds, but it's a list I've put together for each of the 10s, 00s and 90s games that I've done so far and thought it might be of interest to those participating in them.

Can't believe Take On Me isn't a number one. I'm sure it was here in Canada. I was hoping it would be too three in the 80s poll
