Rang Tang Ding Dong (I Am The Japanese Sandman) - Cellos - Apollo 510 - 1957
This is no good, it won a round in 1957. Only the yearlies, the unreleased, and the albums battles matter.
Did you intentionally omit others of Roger's Battles, such as Flipsides, Vocal Groups, etc.? I
don't think you excluded those when you posted the new rules.
Don't Dog Me - Cyde [sic] McPhatter
for this month. That wasn't on my list of songs that had never won. But, although it lost in
Round 1 of the 1960 Battle, it won through Round 4 of the Vocal Groups Encore Battle and through
Round 3 of the Flipsides Battle.
I haven't checked most of the other nominees.
During the course of the new rules Roger suggested and I agreed that only the years, the albums, and the unreleased battles mattered for the new rules. That way there are no songs to worry about that are in more than one contest.
Thanks. I just went back and read the thread. I'm fairly certain that I read it the first time,
but it must not have sunk in. Either that, or I was too busy generating the list of songs that I
posted (using the Old version of the New Rules) that I didn't see the discussion until after I
finished the list, and then maybe I missed something.
So the list I posted
is missing songs that:
a) appeared in the years, the albums, or the unreleased battles without winning any rounds
b) and did win rounds in the other battles
but erroneously includes songs that:
c) appeared in those other battles without winning any rounds
d) and did not appear in the years, the albums, or the unreleased battles.
I'll generate a new list when I get a chance.
