The opening reminds me of "What Is Love" by Haddaway, which I am surprised is not listed here on the site. It was a huge dance record near the end of my DJ ca...

The number of points doesn't matter. Giving #20 1 point and giving #19 2 points will give the same end result as giving #20 11 points and #19 12 points. Of course it matters. In your system if one song has one #17 ranking it gets 4 points while another song with 3 #20 rankings gets just 3 points. I...
