Dis week it woz down to our pals @tartan_terriers to make da decishun. So let's see how it went! Here was da entries for dis week:

My entry for this week is Acapella by Kelis. Why? Coz Don't Worry, Be Happy became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the
Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Dis week I choose 'Eloise' by The Damned.  Why?  becos Captain Sensible had a solo hit wiv 'Happy Talk' , and Eloise was a big hit for his group, who were The Damned.

I went for dis song. It was in da movie Cocktail wiv Tom Cruise who also starred in da movie Rain Man in da same year. Song from dat movie is Iko Iko wot dus be Mardias Gras song wot makes people happy!
And the winner .... as chosen by @tartan_terriers is .... @dogstoyevsky (dat is me!) wiv:
