What would your five have been..

Postby The Modernist » 03 Mar 2006, 00:40

One of the most frustrating things about being knocked out is missing out on the chance of inflicting your appalling taste on everyone else.

There you are planning your next five with the military precision of a Napolean when you suddenly find yourself unceremoniously dumped. So here's a chance to go for it anyway, I know this thread is the equivalent of those world cup third and fourth place play-offs that no one cares about, but what the fuck..

Mine would've been:

Higher And Higher - Jackie Wilson
Shape Your Mind To Die - Leon Thomas
Tears - Frankie Knuckles
The Trader - The Beach Boys
Away From The Numbers - The Jam

The BCB reaction would have been - The Wilson would've been a vote winner, the Thomas and Knuckles would've been ignored, The Beach Boys would've attracted and alienated in equal measures and people would have been quite complimentary about The Jam but would've said I could have picked a better song.
So over to you..

This is a tough one. The Wilson is a vote winner, I've nothing to say about the Thomas and Knuckles picks so I'll ignore them, I love & hate your Beach Boys pick in equal measures and The Jam are great but you could have picked a better song.

Mine would have been:

The Chills - Heavenly Pop Hit (BCB consensus: should have picked a different one of theirs)
Tindersticks - A Night In (vote-winner)
The Ramones - Today Your Love Tomorrow the World (interesting choice but not enough to sway the vote)
Lamb - Gorecki (vote-loser as they're probably not that well-known round here)
Magazine - A Song From Under the Floorboards (too 'obvious')

Radio Birdman - Aloha Steve & Danno
Flaming Stars - The Face On The Barroom Floor
Eleventh Dream Day - Trouble
Dirtbombs - Chains Of Love
Lilys - A Nanny In Manhattan

I'd probably lose 30-5, or something like that...

Queens of the Stone Age, No One Knows
Beastie Boys, B-Boy Bouillabaisse
Elliott Smith, Ballad Of Big Nothing
Wire, Map Ref 41º North 93º West
Womack & Womack, Teardrops

I'm disappointed with those, it's a good job Derek was knocked out after all.

My next five would have been as follows,

Belle and Sebastian - Take your carriage clock and shove it
The Crying Shames - Please stay
DJ Shadow - What does your Soul look Like?
Elvis Presley - Bridge over Troubled Water
Cowboy Junkies - Blue Moon Revisited

A sure fire selection which complimented my top 10 first round selection.

The Shins – New Slang
Nico – Eulogy To Lenny Bruce

Yes. By you, as it turns out. :lol:


Well, I hadn't got as far as the military precision bit but next on the list were:

Soul on fire - Laverne Baker
Mayor Of Simpleton - XTC
The big music - The Waterboys
Say Hello Wave goodbye - Soft Cell or Those First Impressions - The associates
Maps - Yeah yeah yeahs

They've since been used elsewhere but I also had Happy Cycling by Boards Of Canada & Birthday by the SugarCubes on my not-so-shortlist.
