...but I may be wrong :)



I looked at the number of views of a couple of my more obscure tracks last year and they didn't change during the cup.




But then earlier today I watched one of the videos twice and the view count also didn't seem to change.

I was thinking that, when a couple of people seemed to think that The Eagles were - you know - the Eagles.

Well yeah - it's odd enuf he turned up twice in the first half of the first round, but it's the same song. *shiver*

I'm glad I switched some folks onto Nadine Shah, my one good find of last year.

To be honest, I thought that you, Ray, and pcq would have guessed mine straight away, with Movietone being the obvious giveaway.

Nah, sorry to say I don't pay that close attention. Well sometimes I do, but with you younger Brit guys, I had not much in common so gave up years ago. I did try, tho.

Plus I have brain damage. Some serious Math there.

I knew it was you but I had to vote for the other list.

Sorry 'bout that.

So, I get accused of choosing obvious favourites, despite having a really exciting list that including one fantastic song sung in Finnish (and it wasn't even a metal track, just an incredibly jaunty pop song). Did anyone actually listen to it? Yeah, clearly I was playing it safe. Obviously the brave list that wins will contain nothing made after 1976, and will have plenty of Mojo magazine favourites. And, no, I'm not bitter.

By the way, what happened to Bitter Recriminations?

Any way this section could be 'stretched out' a bit, so when you click on the subforum you can see all the threads laid out one by one?

It's a bit strange to have all these old threads listed there and this current one sort of squashed up in an unopened box at the top there.

I found the rejection of the marvellous "Midlife Crisis" offensive. Although in saying that it was mostly rejected by people who wouldn't know a tune if it gently cupped their testicles so it's no surprise really.

If ever there was a tune that was gonna gently cup my cojones, it ain't 'Midlife Crisis' - 'Midlife Crisis' is more your cold digit up the bunghole when you're least expecting it.

Yep, listened to every track and enjoyed it a lot overall, MM. Sad to see it go.

I was disappointed that the Finnish track wasn't some acid folk thing on Fonal Records, tbh. I was hoping for another Paavoharju or Kemailliset Ystavat. Your list was quite good, and would've beaten most of the others in this comp, I thought. But it was up against the best list so far.

We all know that there's only one band that Lordi's all over the Finnish music scene















It's The Rasmus, innit?
