Following on from our recent and successful number 1's poll, this is the 21st poll of a total of thirty in which i ask you to pick your `3` favourite UK number 2 singles from the golden years of 1960 - 1989.
Remember that you must select all '3' favourite choices in one go, you cannot vote for one or two then vote again for your third.
The poll ends Friday at 7.30pm. This is a hidden poll and the result will automatically be revealed at the end of the poll. You must be logged-in to vote.
THE POLL IS CLOSED.
Not a bad selection of number 2's in my opinion, though for me nothing is truly outstanding. Ive picked my three, though im not so sure id have picked this same three back in 1982. I guess some records just sound better over time.
What a choice, and a very good year from the early 80s. I had one track which I thought was high above the others, but for the remaining two it was difficult to decide. I have done so, but on another day my remainder could have been different.
I have chosen an ode to a Television character, the soft sound of the Old Smoke and a Doctor’s warning.
Be very interesting to see who wins out for 1982, but the quality is good and many would have been better served as number 1s. Nearly all are better than the tracks that beat them to the top spot.
Just voted in this poll, so this is my choices. The first is something to do with Boston.The second was done by one of the best psychedelic bands in the sixties. The last one is by a great singer who had many songs by B&D.
Not my favourite selection, but there’re some worthy contenders. The only song I had to remind myself of actually became one of my choices. I wonder if I’ll be the only one to offer said said song a vote...
I'm not bitter about it, but a lot of these number two records are in a different league to some of the number ones. I thought I hadn't got a prayer of cutting it down to three, but I've now made my choices.
