Considering in America, the only song we would've heard is Kung Fu Fighting, I voted for that.

We would've probably heard these. . .

At least I would have.

Suzi for me. Or the J5.

Don't go by me, though - I'm not much on dancing in general.

Suzi is shrill, "Tiger Feet" is Chiin & Chapman lazily recycling "Ballroom Blitz" to no great effect, and "My Coo Ca Choo" sounds like a dirty old man trying to impress a sweet young thing with his "Spirit In The Sky" rip-off.

So: "Rebel Rebel" narrowly besting "Kung Fu Fighting". On another day it might have gone the other way.

"King Fu Fighting" is the only one I remember hearing on the radio when I was young.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I voted for Alvin. It's not a perfect pop record by any means, the piano is a bit annoying (you can imagine Jools Holland nodding approvingly at the worst bits), but I like the way they've taken the glorious "Spirit in the Sky" riff, and made it slightly fractured, bouncing around the space that Alvin's oddly mannered, quiet vocal creates.

I could've voted for Rebel Rebel, but it was obviously going to win here, and it reminds me of Man Utd of yesteryear (Neville Neville), which is never a good thing.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
