My vote is for Funky New Year. This was a bad idea, and probably done as more of a joke, just to get a Holiday B-side for Please Come Home For Christmas.

Funky New Year is first on my list to go. I completely agree with Dreamer on it and do they really even sing? I do find it cute and amusing, but really.....

I vote for Funky New Year. Just awful. Makes Disco Strangler sound like a Beethoven composition.

I'm going to vote for Get You In The Mood. I like Funky New Year especially the Millennium version when Don added a little something to it.

I had to check my profile to make sure it was okay for me to vote. I think it's okay, depending on what your definition of "good standing" is.

How can you vote to eliminate "Get You In The Mood" first? No, no, no, that can't be. I cannot sit idly by and let that happen!

I have to admit, I don't think I'd heard "Funky New Year" before. I'm pretty sure I laughed out loud. ("Yeah, the weird lady is laughing in her cubicle again. Don't go near her.") And, seriously, if you haven't partied until your hair hurts, have you really partied at all?

There are two I would like to vote for. One of these songs I just can't stand… and I don't think it's the song, the writer, and definitely not the singer's fault. It just grates. on. my. nerves. Must be something left over from a past life.

But, I will vote for the other of those two:
Please Come Home For Christmas.

Yep - This definitely gave me a chuckle. I am, obviously, grateful to see that it will be the first song to be eliminated. It so deserves it. lol I mean I didn't even mention earlier about the repetition - My guess is must say Funky New Year at least 20 times, which is probably 2/3's of the song. If it needed my vote, it would definitely get it, but since this round isn't even close, I am going to vote for another song with a lot of repetition ...

I cast my vote for Hole in the World.

BTW - I may be misremembering, but I can't ever recall a round in any of our Survivor games in which so many songs got votes ... to be exact, 3/4's of the songs in the game received votes in this round.
