My list will become a cult classic. Years from now, people will realise how ahead of it's time it was and claimed they voted for me way back in 2006. Just wait.
The absolute worst thing anyone could say about you is that you were a selfish, moral blank, whose lazy cynicism and sneering, ironic take on the world encapsulates everything wrong with a generation. But you my friend are not evil.

By rights my list should have made it into the last four but probably had too many 70's soul cuts to pass muster on here.
Still I can retire gracefully knowing I have better taste than most.

During practice the other day I pulled a muscle or something.
Does this mean I can postpone my second round match for a couple of weeks?

There's lots of double posts in the recent round matches.
Is this what President Idi Amin meant by vote rigging?

I feel it's only right that I point out your mistake here: it's not actually a victory, it's a defeat. Considering it a victory would be entirely erroneous.

Hope this helps.

No, you're really not getting this. It's Win - Lose. Two players, one wins and one loses.

Hope this helps.

True, wisdom can be garnered from any experience, even losing, which is what has happened here. Not winning.

Not so much a change of tack as simply abandoning the idea of having a bit of a laugh with you.

Well I thought that was a very funny exchange. I'll be off now to put it in the treasury.

This is my first BCB Cup and its really is a bit of silly fun don't you think. What is interesting for me to observe is the number of people whose basis for voting against a list is that it is too "canonical". If songs are great they are great despite how many people and critics say they are. No matter how many people say that "Rain" or "Gimme Shelter" or "Like A Rolling Stone" are great songs does not make them any less great and the converse is also true. What is one man's greatness is another man's mediocrity, I suppose. It just bothers me to see the number of folks voting against lists where they state that they like the artists and songs listed but then say its too "canonical". Too me, that just does not make sense.
