Add your voice to the sound of the crowd!

Radio stations and music magazines are forever asking their listeners or readers to vote for the greatest record ever made. This can have unpredictable results, as various polls have awarded the title of Best Record Ever to everything from Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' or John Lennon's 'Imagine' to Snow Patrol's 'Chasing Cars'1 or even Bros's 'I Owe You Nothing'2. smiley - erm

Now, based on the premise that hootooers are unquestionably people of good taste, we're asking you to vote for your favourite records of all time. You can vote for anything you like, regardless of whether or not it was ever a hit single, but please remember that we're talking about the best records ever, not just your current favourite record.

  1. QUEEN – The Prophet's Song (8 points)
  2. DIRE STRAITS - Romeo And Juliet (6 points)
