Tallying - A just - 21-20.


Am I the only one hoping that you're not being serious?

No - there are good songs on both, but they're uninspired, backward looking and narrow minded, tastewise. The choice of blokes in their 40s or 50s who no longer listen to much taht's recent - but that goes for most of the remaining contestants, frankly. NMB might be the saving grace - otherwise this is the tubby black T-shirt wearers' tubby black T-shirt wearer award, let's be clear.

The majority of entries are the choice of blokes in their 40s or 50s, many of whom no longer listen to much new. That's the population of this board so it should not be a surprise.

You said however these were the poorer of such lists. Nonsense. They are two of the best, not worst.

I'd be raising my game at this stage. These two just don't seem like music fans, which I'm needing at this stage in the cup, just givers of lip service. There's no sign of a real love of or, moreso, a wide knowledge of music. I'm not playing a bitchy card as Jumper K has, for a laugh, I really think these two lists are dull.

So it's just a matter of opinion then. I thionk you're wrong. No problem.

I didn't know we had non music fans posting here though. It seems a silly place for them to come.

But not of music - throughout this whole cup I've seen you go through people's tastes and tick it off against your own. And there are few people with such a narrow taste on this board.

Christ. Isn't that what we are all doing. The point of this exercise?

And what's your taste? All encompassing or something?

Get a life.

It's a classic in any sort of fi, it's hard for me to put into words the immense feelings I have for this song, so I won't.
