what's trending this year?

Postby Bungo the Mungo » 19 Jan 2014, 11:39

the NO BEATLES thing we saw so much in evidence last year will continue

more ELECTRONICA

the winning or high-flying lists (as in every other year in recent memory) will contain a SMITHS classic

I have a feeling there will be relatively few examples of PUNK songs

More obscure soul, increased country and the 80s will continue to be heavily underpicked.

I don't think any of the semi-final lists last year had a Smiths tune.

I tried the Beatles on my first cup list four years ago - Besame Mucho - didn't win me any votes.

Besame Mucho was a terrible choice to be fair, The Beatles would would still get a positive response in a list I think so long as you avoid the really big hitters like "Hey Jude"...not that I've picked them.

Now that Spirit Of Eden has received the Diamond Dog seal of approval, all shortlisted Talk Talk picks will have been abandoned.

Besame Mucho is one of THE great Cuban classics - sung with real yearning by Paul, and much better than many of their self-penned songs. If you want to choose a Beatles cover, which I thought was an original approach, why not BM or A Taste of Honey? Something early, at any rate.

It was a stupid idea. The song doesn't come close to even their weakest self-penned efforts.

Get a grip.

You know that isn't true - a Cuban classic against a Beatles clunker, even you hate some of their self-penned songs.

it must be the second most famous Cuban song after Guantanamera. I once met a Cuban girl in Denmark, and besides asking me if I knew Buena Vista, she also asked me if I knew Besame Mucho. That was the extent of our music conversation, remember they are culturally isolated.

That doesn't make it any good. Frankly, it makes 'You Know My Name, Look Up The Number' sound like a classic.

And 'Candle in the Wind' is like the most famous British song ever but that doesn't mean a thing!
