AB stain

Neither has any particular flow, nor reason why a particular track has been favoured over another.

Wasn't there a thread about 'why aren't you voting in the BCB Cup?'

Well, there ya go...

For me, the segues between songs are better and the final song is impeccably placed.

So. We are left with the 2 lists.
A is 80's and 90's personified. Defiantly based on Indie with a couple of nods to the hippier end of the 60's and some token obvious hip-hop and soul. Pasty-faced dreary stuff that the sad lonely accountancy students were left to dance to on their own to at the end of the night at the Student disco on a Tuesday. Their height of sophistication is the Sade lp stuck at the back of the pile on the floor in the scummy bedsit vaingloriously waiting for the day when there might be the sniff of some action of the lusting kind. It remains mint to this day.

B tries so hard to cover all the bases that it is pitiful and ends up looking like and end of year critic list in the Daily Mail done by the Business Correspondant who once read Lester bangs beacuse they thought it was a car manual. The protagonist thinks they have the Funk but really all they have is a tank top and a pair of patent Wedges. If you look hard enough you will find the complete Elton John discography on vinyl and tape close to the Amstrad upright stereo. You can currently find this person in the local Afghan restaurant sipping Yaks milk tea and arguing Hesse with the bored owners 18 year old son. Who thinks he is a twat.

A
Because The Stranglers choice is beyond redemption of any kind. I'd rather listen to to Jefffuckingbuckley than that pile of excrement.

I had to duck & cover!

Yeah, it's really, hmmmm......

Hmmmmmm.

Actually I can't really justify swerving from my headlong inclination toward A.

Loads of great tracks, A. Simple as that.

B, you're going to win so, ... y'know.

Plenty of great stuff in both lists, but B has been my favourite list for a while. Partly it's down to immediate impact - I see 'Transmission' and 'Across 110th Street' at the head and immediately know I'm likely to vote for the list. But there's plenty of treasure after that. Nothing at all wrong with A, but B just has a funkier selection.

Another Girl Another Planet The Only Ones surely nobody feels the need to hear this song ever again.
Tower Of Song Leonard Cohen tower of shit.
Just Like Heaven The Cure erm, are you sure, mr creamcakes? sounds like hell to me.
Don't Forget About Me Dusty Springfield if only i could, dusty. overrated faux UK soulless soul.
25 Miles Edwin Starr still too near, though.
Last Goodbye Jeff Buckley can anyone see the irony in the title?
There Is a Light That Never Goes Out The Smiths sadly, that double-decker bus never did hit him, did it?
The Seed (2.0) The Roots the mediocrity.
Something The Beatles i mean, of all the songs he could choose from...
Try A Little Tenderness Otis Redding ok. you're a bit overrated, otis. but don't take it to heart, mate.
Dry The Rain - The Beta Band is this on that 3 EPs thing? if it is, it's really, really dull.
Red Right Hand - Nick Cave oh fuck off, you tiresome aussie goth.
Sexx Laws - Beck ooh look. two Xs! how clever. or something.never trust a scientologist.
Do I Love You (Indeed I Do) - Frank Wilson sadly, it is not reciprocated, franky boy.
I'm In Love With A German Film Star - The Passions you're a pretentiontious twat, then.
Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana smells like cordite to me.
Perfect Skin - Lloyd Cole & The Commotions wordy, jangly shite from a fat golfer from derby? erm, no thanks.
You Set The Scene - Love if it's all right by whispering bob, it's not all right by me. hugely overrated hippy bollocks.
Safe From Harm - Massive Attack when it's all said and done, it's coffee table music, really, isn't it? music for people who buy three albums a year
A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys clumsy faux ska in a silly accent for 15 year olds who like to think they're into meaningful songs.
Maggot Brain - Funkadelic you said it, mate.
Hurt - Johnny Cash is this an instruction? i hope so.
Embarrassment - Madness isn't it just?
Debaser - The Pixies what exactly is a "debaser", frank? thought so. meaningless drivel.
Common People - Pulp he's living in paris now, you know. how very working class of him.
Teenage Kicks - The Undertones shameless vote grabbing. have some imagination, will you.
Eye Know - De La Soul i bought 3 feet high and rising when it came out. haven't played it in 15 years.
Float On - Modest Mouse why are you singing in that silly voice, you buffoon?
The Facts Of Life - Black Box Recorder never heard it, i'm glad to say.probably shite, though
The Man Don't Give A Fuck - Super Furry Animals what a coincidence - neither do i.
Playground Love - Air if there's one thing worse than bristol coffee table music, it's french coffee table music.
Song For The Dumped - Ben Folds in which case, i have use for this song.
A Pair Of Brown Eyes - The Pogues like she'd be interested in you, shane.
Julia - Pavlov's Dog it's prog. need i say more?
Hold On, I'm Comin' - Sam & Dave if it's all the same to you, i'll be off to the pub, dave. or is it sam?

so there you have it. this list was compiled by a thirty-something wideboy so he could listen to it in his mark II capri whilst he cruises around london-on-the-sea showing off his furry dice and his and hers sun visor. even now, like his furry dice, he probably still thinks it's classy.

B.

it was close, though.

35 stone cold classics. Each one of them deserving to win this title on its own. Obvious? I have no idea what the fuck that even means. They’re great tracks, and that’s the only thing that counts. Some of the pretentious cunts on here really ought to work that out.

B

Transmission - Joy Division - Ah yes, suicide boy. Dance, dance, dance, dance to the radio? I’d rather dance on the miserable talentless cunt’s grave than listen to this dirge.
Across 110th Street - Bobby Womack – Careful you don’t get run over, actually, don’t be careful at all.
Runaround Sue - Dion and the Belmonts – No, runaway Sue, as far away from these cunts as possible.
Who Knows Where the Time Goes? - Fairport Convention - All I know is it fucking drags listening to this dreary shite.
Band of Gold - Freda Payne - Is it any surprise he fucked off? Thought not.
It was a Good Day - Ice Cube – “At least I didn’t have to use my AK!” Perhaps the Isley Borthers will use theirs for ripping Footsteps In The Dark off.
Summer Wind - Frank Sinatra – This stinks, just like the wind it reminds me of.
Beasley Street - John Cooper Clarke – Not just northern bollocks, but northern poetry bollocks.
We the People Who Are Darker than Blue - Curtis Mayfield – Oh goodie, some 3rd rate funk. Just what this list needs. Another base covered, apparently.
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) - Darlene Love – not a fucking chance if you keep singing love.
The Ballad of Easy Rider - The Byrds – More car crash than motorbiking freedom I reckon.
Have You Seen Her? - The Chi-Lites – Of course I shagged her this morning and she said I was miles better than you.
Apology Accepted - The Go-betweens – You should be apologising for this fucking rubbish.
Je t'aime....moi non plus - Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – Something to appeal to our French listeners. How patronising. I’m surprised there’s no Plastic Bertrand to grab the Belgian vote.
Shoot Speed/Kill Light - Primal Scream – Shoot Gillespie/Kill this thing off. Now.
The Crown - Gary Byrd and the GB Experience – I don’t know this, but based on what’s come before it it’s definitely fucking rubbish.
Lenny Valentino - The Auteurs – Indie at it’s absolute worst. Really. A has a much better Luke Haines track, and in fact Showgirls would have been a much better pick than this cack.
Sabotage - Beastie Boys – It certainly is a Sabotage. Someone must have rigged the charts and drugged the record industry and record buying public for this comedy to have been taken seriously.
Deeper Into Movies - Yo La Tengo – Good idea guys, as a stint behind the counter at Blockbuster beckons.
Do What You Gotta Do - Nina Simone – I gotta turn this off.
No Reply - The Beatles – no redeeming features here either.
Pull Up To The Bumper - Grace Jones – Oh no, you might start singing again, I’m off.
Walk On By - The Stranglers – Unforgivable. Simply unforgivable.
I Don't Care Anymore - Doris Duke – Neither do I. Not for this old bollocks anyway.
Everyone's a VIP to Someone - The Go! Team – Almost good this one, but you still managed to pick the weakest track in their repertoire. Clueless cunt.
Running Up That Hill - Kate Bush – Faster Kate, faster. With any luck you’ll be so out of breath that you won’t manage to sing any more of this drivel.
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere - Neil Young and Crazy Horse – Everybody know you’re a cunt too Neil.
I Can Never Go Home Anymore - The Shangri-Las – I’m not surprised you’ve been disowned for producing this load of bollocks.
Blue Boy - Orange Juice – Blue because your career is choking? Let’s hope so.
Long Promised Road - The Beach Boys – Keep heading down it boys, eventually you’ll get lost with any luck.
The Hymn For The Cigarettes - Hefner – Not even lung cancer could make me sympathetic to this choice.
Make It Easy On Yourself - The Walker Brothers - …by turning this off and putting something a whole lot less dull on.
Seven Minutes To Midnight - Wah! Heat – Wylie. Enough said.
Young Americans - David Bowie – More insulting than LMG at 3am after a bucketful of Thunderbird. I’d rather cut my own bollocks off than be subjected to this.
Many Rivers To Cross - Jimmy Cliff – Many opportunities to drown this caterwauling cunt.

So there we have it. It’s a no-brainer really, which is why the voting so far is what it is. Given that the person behind list B is an emotional alcoholic twat I suppose it’s easy to conclude that in his chemical addled mind these songs have some value. Obviously, he’s deluded and just plain wrong.

It's all over, another year another dragged on far too long BCB cup.

I'm afraid to say that Griff is the winner - makes me glad I didn't let him the first time round.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to submit lists and vote.
