That Betty Lavette number is killer, but...

Woaaaahh!!!

Caruso, Dvorak and... Afrirampo!!

I want A to win this, I really do.

Where's the Dvorak?

Tough one, agree that the bette lavette track is a belter but out of the three additional picks the Caruso and the new to me Smetana (which I just purchased) are winners 1-2.

A continues to play the esoteric card, but it starts to look a bit cynical when you start to go down the classical route but then throw in something French, something Brazilian, some P Funk AND Bad Brains ! All over the place and I don't buy into all of it. Anyway I like B and the three new ones sway me here.

... there goes my coolness factor! :oops: :oops:

I guess I was irritated by the fact that Donizetti wasn't mentioned for Caruso (and whoever played Smetana's Ma Vlast remained anonymous)

B, with little enthusiasm.
Freak out. Far out.

It may be all over the place, but Ma Vlast is one of the few classical pieces I like, and Afrirampo and The Cookies are good places to land, so

A 11-14 B

A mounted at least one comeback but B kept pulling back ahead.

A was Geezee.

B, let's call Sunday the deadline for your three new songs again.
