I wrote down a list of 75 songs I liked and then came up with these top 30:

Semifinal

My friends recieved the mp3 of these 30 songs and they have graded each of them with a 1 (awful) through 5 (great) system. For the first BoNF years, I did not save the full results (just like old Eurovision lol) but only the ranking. And so we have from 30th to 16th:
