Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Another pleasingly idiosyncratic list bites the dust. A 17, B 26. A was renowned photographer Rayge. Sorry your first BCB Cup wasn't more successful.

B should take careful note. I want you to remove between one and five songs from your list and replace them with new choices. Your discarded songs cannot be reinstated at a later date. You are allowed to re-jig the order of your list. Once you've done this, send me your revised list of ten songs.

Rayge hard?

Pity about the link not working- did you have to take it down?

No, it's still there at http://www.mediafire.com/download /y0szwyoln9pal7o/BCB+list.zip if anyone's interested. [You have to delete the space after the word 'download'.]

The problem was that every time Andrew posted it, it decayed somehow to the form in the original post.

I got no recriminations, but I do think I ought to explain. I always liked making mixtapes with themes, putting tracks together to tell stories, to comment on each other, provide context, ironise, and so on. I used to look at them as projects, make a master and run off copies for my mates. Haven't done it for a while, but I thought it would be nice to do it again here. Which is why I made a sequenced file and sent that. I would have provided links to the eight I found on youTube, but I didn't, as the loss of the Steve Miro and Mildred Bailey would have skewed my beautiful vision. Of course, as soon as the first few list had been posted, I realised that no one was going to listen to both in sequence, and the idea was to provide a selection that covered all bases, combined known favourites with new, less obscure tracks, and so on, as Penk and Copehead gently informed me on viewtopic.php?f=27&t=121535&start=180. And I hadn't done that with my list, so no surprises. I'll know better in future. Actually, given the technical cock-up, I'm quite pleased I got as many as I did.
Oh, the reason the Fairports track was there was because it was a favourite, it was played during our wedding (Chip knew Sandy in the ’60s), so it not only suited the theme but also provided a neat lyrical and thematic counterpoint to the impatient exuberance of the Distractions song (which should be 3rd, rather than 4th in the order). It made perfect sense to me :D

See my post above.
It fits perfectly because it represents a late middle age attitude, and because the lyrical subject matter neatly counterpoints that of the Distractions song (which should have been three rather than four in the list). It was also one of my wife's favourite song, and along with the Jimmy Castor and Artie Shaw was played at our second wedding.
And it fits there because I made a list that told a story rather than one that attempted to appeal to a bunch of inbred cronies with a genre pick & mix


Psychotic yo mama.

Yep. Like Jeemo said, his Creation material is brilliant. I don't much like the electro stuff and what came later, granted, but that track, that song, fitted the list concept better than any other

It was exactly as obscure as I said it was, i.e. I couldn't find a couple of tracks on youTube or anywhere else. I would have expected anyone sentient in the UK in the 80s to appreciate Dreams of Desire, although Weekend is genuinely obscure, but I just happen to love the song.


toomanyhatz wrote:Or as interesting.

I didn't think any of it was 'interesting', or to have any chin-stroking qualities at all. The list was meant to be listened to and enjoyed, rather than pored over. It's pop music.

You seem to be suggesting that I set out to be obscure and challenging and that's the exact opposite. I was looking to engage, and for people to hear songs I like, and appreciate how they are put together, so this narked me. A bit :)
