This is the list that knocked me out. It does have some great stuff in it - high energy and fun. But it also selects some BIGTIME duds. Mostly the newer music picks which range from boring me to tears to straight up appalling.

My two favourite lists left. A has been wonderfully idiosyncratic and you can tell it comes from the heart. It understands that pop music should be fun and that people other than Mojo readers take huge enjoyment from it even if it strays from my tastes ever so slightly at times. Its heart is in the right place and it would throw a great party.

B has one or two picks that I don't really care for but then you'd expect that in a list of 35 songs and every list should be forgiven what you yourself may consider a faux pas or two and, really, it is largely excellent. I think I'm right in saying I've voted for both of these lists all the way through so in that sense I'm sorry they've been drawn together a round too early.

After much consideration, gnashing of teeth and kicking of cats.....

This is where I get off B's bandwagon.

I do, sure. But you and I, fans both, always seem to disagree about what they were best at (see also The Jam!). In particular about their choice of singles after MiM (or after Setting Sons).

I demand a recount!

Oh well. Congratulations to B and good luck in the final. That's a splendid list you have there.

I'm sorry you felt like that! I loved your list.

In fact, I really liked all the lists I was matched up against and can only apolgise to everyone who was beaten by my set, especially Beesby who lost so narrowly. I'm sure you would all have done much better than me in the semi-final.

At least I went down to a list that made it to the finals. Still it had no business knocking out my rocking selections.

Bad luck, Tym.

As I said before, I followed this list after it knocked me out. I thought it was inventive and fun, so well done for that.

And you're very kind to say this.

Well that's no surprise - my list was perfect ;)

I mostly loved your list too, that's why I voted for it. And I stand by what I said. Had some great stuff in it. I really liked the energy and a lot of it could rock a party unlike most of the others in this competition. It was just a few selections I couldn't get with.
