Ok, this is fucked, there is no way I can vote for song of the year. I cannot in any way pick one song over another on this list. It would be easier for me to pick which song shouldn't be song of the year out of this list. So I pass on picking one song.

Album - Ice On Fire - Elton
Cover - War - Frankie
Duet - Dancing In The Streets - Mick & Bowie
