This morning I found I was only able to vote for one choice, immediatly I made a second selection my first vote was removed and the dot transfered to my second choice
I'm obviously missing something here, but please remind me why anyone would want to vote for more than one choice if only one can be selected?

And while I'm on here, I know we may be about to leave the EU but why does the choice often have more foreign (usually French) tunes than English ones? Just asking.

As it happens, I was just looking at an old thread complaining that TOTM was biased towards English tunes  ;D
I think the mix is pretty egalitarian.
Mind you, the English Border Morris repertoire does contain a lot of French tunes masquerading as English ones. Time permitting I might post some for this month's theme.

The video example for Plant'un Cao seems to have a few blooper in it...

Here's a better version

And what about German tunes? And Finnish tunes? And Italian tunes?

That's what I said, egalitarian: All people [and their tunes] are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities.

If "Hunt the Squirrel" wins, I'll definitely try to recreate this inspirational version on melodeon. Bound to fail or is our instrument really as versatile as we think it is? We'll see!
