You mean I rarely agree with you, that isn't the same thing.

I think we have more in common musically than you imagine.

Still didn't vote for your list though ;)

To be fair you were up against a very strange but alluring list that hit one of my hot keys - early blues, your list was actually one of the better ones

I think he got to round 2 one year...after drawing Carlsson in round one.


I've made it to round 2 every year bar one and never made it beyond round 3

I'm clicking a lot more this year, but my point is, if a list contains enough off-putting stuff, there's not much point in investigating further. I don't think any of us click on everything.

Think again. But then, some of us don't judge all lists based on what we do and don't recognise. And find this kind of logic laughable:

R. Dean Taylor - There's a Ghost in My House listen
Broadcast - Come On, Let's Go listen
Dusty Springfield - Magic Garden listen
Pentangle - Wedding Dress listen
The Fun and Games - It Must've Been the Wind listen
The Dillards - Brother John listen
X - White Girl listen
Laura Nyro - Blackpatch listen
The Isley Brothers - You Walk Your Way listen
Haim - Falling listen

Broadcast, Dusty, Pentangle, Dillards, X, Nyro, the Isleys & Haim = obscure?

Great. That's what the links, and 48-hour voting periods, are for.

Try it - you might actually find something you like that you don't already know...

I think I'm fairly 'up' on music and I had never heard of Broadcast till I met Baron. I don't think there's any shame in thinking they were obscure!

You've been saying nasty things about soul music. I have my eye on you.

If anyone posts a bit of soul music, I'm sure to say some nice things about it – I seem to remember that the inclusion of the divine Dionne tipped one contest for me. I was and am a bit of a soul boy.
But if anyone posts tedious funk noodling, fair-to-middling R&B crooners or grunters in tight suits backed by horn farts in the name of soul, I'm going to call them on it.
