I have reviewed the match-up and agree that Mr. K-Tel has every reason to be bitter and outraged.
It's a goddamn shame, Harv.

I was going to put Good and Gone in my list. Ironically, the list that beat me put the SBMs in eventually. The wrong song, like. :x

Oh, you sad people and your sad little cliques. “Oh look!”, you say, “A BIG name is about to come crashing down!” One of yours, one of the people with “taste”, who somehow seem to be able to arbitrarily decide who is and who isn’t worthy of their esteem, as if somehow you were able to look at our record collections with your giant binoculars. I get the last laugh, however, as I put ink on the eyepieces, you turkey-necked freaks. I invite any of you to come look at my records, you will, without exception, find a collection worthy of gathering only the rarest of dust in any higher institute of musicology. Please ignore the Sgt. Peppers OST. Thank you.

In the end, what do we stand to gain by letting something like this:

1.I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash
2. There She Goes - The La's
3. Something Changed - Pulp
4. Bittersweet Symphony- The Verve

18. Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
19. Detonation Boulevard - The Sisters of Mercy
20. Twin Cadillac Valentine - Screaming Blue Messiahs

be representative of the collective taste of BCB?

Look long and hard at that list. Can you honestly tell me that there is anything there even remotely as exciting as something like John Lee Hooker’s ‘Walkin’ The Boogie’?
If you can, then you should bow your heads in shame, because you have obviously been born without ears and undoubtedly look like a styrofoam-headed mannequin that some left-handed idiot with less brains than a bucket of puke has drawn cross-eyes on. For shame. For shame. Hide yourself, freak, the villagers are coming and they want to burn your bookshelf stereo and your miserly collection of shitty CDs.

That’s what drew us here, it’s what drew us to Mojo4music.com in the first place, and I’ll tell you one last thing: that list up there, that list was made by someone from the Q message boards.

Ok, then, some thoughts on my demise in the Cup. This is the 'best' I have ever done, so I'm not too annoyed. My list was a tad more calculated than before, in that we now know certain artists or genres are just Cup kryptonite, so the wise move is to avoid using them. Being too 'personal' with my selections has only led to first round ejection and - yes - bitter recriminations, so I chose a different tack. I can say, though, that the list contained 20 songs I love, so no worries on that score.

The list I lost out to was okay, but my Neil Young (I've Been Waiting For You) and my Rolling Stones (2000 Light Years From Home) rule compared to my conqueror's (Old Man, She's A Rainbow). Plus, there was a fair smattering of hoary Cup warhorses (Paperback Writer? Transmission?) or - ulp - prog on the winning list, but I guess that's what you need to get through. Hmmm, this is beginning to sound more bitter than I wanted....er, well done A!

The other thing was the fact that, according to some, my list included unidentified tracks that were deemed to be - I'll paraphrase - shite. Good thing their lists were so unimpeachable. He said, definitely approaching bitterness... I'll stop now!

Holy cow, I just checked that match and Harvey's opponent's list got almost twice as many votes as Harvey's!

That's a mandate. The people have spoken.

At least I only lost by two votes! :lol:

I didn't think I'd be writing this feeling in any way bitter. I entered only as Griff was struggling to fill the last couple of places. I came through the first round, knocking out Bad Ambassador after a tie break by ONE vote (sorry fella). I won the next two against Mentalist and RCL by just 6 votes in each round, so I was riding my luck all the way.

Then I get properly beaten in the fourth round.

A good run, except the list that has just beaten me is simply FUCKING DULL. Utterly dreary dull tedious shite. I stand by every track of mine, regardless of the canonist or popularist bullshit names that get thrown at it. Each track is gold. Too deep rooted in British Indie? Fuck off. I won't apologise for having musical tastes that stretch beyond 1982.

Good luck in the next round to whoever list A is, although you won't need it with all the dinosaurs here still voting.
