I've never heard of The Korgis either.

It's so clearly A, and I'm certain it's Owen or an Owen impersonator


a.....


follow the leader - eric B and Rakim

Rakim's ability to never sound out of breath, even when piling metaphor upon metaphor, has yet to been matched. And it's the calmness, while the samples around him are begging histrionics which is the classic ingredient.
+4


Gravel Pit - wu-tang clan
Flinstones rap, and how great is that? Responsible for one of the few decent videos of recent times, ut more importantly, this really, really shouldn't work. But it does, incomparably.
+4

Another girl another planet - only ones
That opening solo. That all-too-obvious double entendre. That bright sneer. Whoever his muse was at this point, what's most exciting is that he was still alive enough to write something, that, for all we know, may as well be about a girl.
+4

Work It - Missy Elliott
If not as sonically disturbing as Get Your Freak On, this is its fitter, more charming sister. A great throw-back to Run DMC's "Peter Piper", the most obvious carry-on metaphor for big apendages and, well, just so much fun
+4

What does your soul look like - DJ Shadow
The fascinating thing about this track is its multi-texture layering, inherent circularity, and the fact that really, throghout it doesn't sound like a selection of old records pasted together at all, except perhaps during the scratches between each sax solo. Or maybe that voice that crackles and croaks. Creepy, for sure. A marvel
+4

What'd I Say - Ray Charles
Is this the best call-and-response song ever? It'd be hard to beat, and if it isn't that, then it's the best sex and salvation song there is. Hopping and skipping, there's something just so damn easy about that this song, bipping and bopping to what was clearly a brand new beat. Genuis.
+4


It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

A

What he said. I'd add that A is alittle more eclectic. A it is.

That said "B" has some very good choices too, but there's something not quite doing it for me. Some good taste being shown here!

As seems to be the case with those voting this way, A by several galaxies.

Some great choices on A, but B is more to my liking.

Another girl another planet - only ones
What'd I Say - Ray Charles
My Funny Valentine - Miles Davis

These are the only songs I know off A. The first is fab, the second is good in a groundpreaking-at-thr-time-but-sounds-a-bit-ordinary-now sort of way and the third is ... well ... not my favoutrite version of this magnificent song. I can think of at least three versions I prefer.
While I don't know the other songs I'm more or less familiar wuth about half of the artists and they're "not my cup of tea".

I like everything I know off B including The Korgis number.

The manager of the second team must be Bouncing out of the dugout with joy - they keep hitting the back of the net without reply - even though one goal may be disallowed.

Oops.

I was really pissed last night. Might have had something to do with it.
