There might be call for a Take That or the like in my list.

Ramin is my only indulgence, but only because he's one of the top 5 best male vocalists in the world right now.
All of which are relevant - to your choices. Implying that they wouldn't be mine shouldn't draw such umbrage. (You'd also be surprised where we agree; you choosing Lin-Manuel inspired me to choose him for my list, but for a different track. While he's a competent singer in my opinion, I think he really excels at spoken word, which might be giving too much away, but I'm gearing up to post my list shortly anyway, so it's not a big reveal.)

I agree, which is why I didn't say none; I said I personally would use less, taking nothing away from what anyone else would choose. (Also, personally speaking, whatever "Two Out of Three Ain't," it also ain't filler, to me anyway.)

Apparently Harry Styles is okay though. (Kidding - I actually quite like the direction he's taking, now that it's not One. See what I did there?)

Agreed, as is mine.
