More close minded cliche.
The Wah! track is great: a euphoric, stirring protest song.


Oh do behave. It is awful cack. Overblown pomp rock fronted by a loudmouth who couldn't hold a tune in a skip.
there are things that I say I should consider, before I talk.

This is close, but having counted this two ways, I can confirm that a huge block vote for A on page 2 secures the win after a strong start for B. Good match! A 21, B 19. B was Goat Boy, who is unlucky to lose by such a slender margin.

Sorry Dougie, I was genuinely conflicted with this one and I would have voted for your list against pretty much 98% of the lists. The Callier track swung me in the end, especially as it's not an obvious one of his to pick (but is one of his best).

:o :shock: :o
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I shoulda picked something like that Billy Bragg track instead!



You make me want to kill myself.

The Wah! track was great! The better 80s track (not my favorite decade either) was one of the reasons I loved this list.

Ah well, another good one down the tubes. I take some comfort in the fact that there's still a list with Callier (though I despair too at the Bragg monstrosity, and I like some of his a great deal- just not that one).

I haven't bothered voting in the cup but sometimes check the outgoing competitors lists.

all I can say is that anyone who starts with MP's Voyages is worthy of some distinction,just for picking that one alone !
