A is more to my liking. Pretty solid.

The Devo track is a good choice.

B has the kind of quirky selections I like to see peppered in Cup lists, although keeps sabotaging his/her own lists with weak "indie" picks. The other list is all pretty much good, but offers no surprises.

I'm going with B, partly because i's the slightly more appealing of two fun lists, and partly because it's getting twatted.

I'm nailing my colours to the B mast. Just feels a bit more personal and more of the kind of choices I like to see in a list

Ouch! After page 1, this was 17-1 in favour of A. B rallied a bit, but it still ended A 37, B 12, which is pretty comprehensive, you have to say. I voted for A, even though it knocked me out in round 1. B was Neige, the cup's only Swiss representative, whose first list caused incredible problems with the board's spam filter...bad luck, but five more songs are now needed from A!

With this one I knew it was you, Felix.

Tough luck, though.

And, yeah, most BCB'ers don't know good music.

Same here. Peter Blegvad and Lowell George - dead giveaway.

Bad luck Switzerland.

We think the voting from Riga looked a bit suspect.

Sorry, Felix! I'm afraid I was a contributor to your downfall there... :(

Well, my Waterloo looked so complete this time that I didn't even bother voting myself. The fact that I ended up with a two-digit score after all is enough to restore my faith in mankind. :|

Thanks to all who voted for me (and mission who changed horses halfway through can fuck right off! :evil: )

Just a few observations here, as I don't feel up to entering the 'bitter recriminations' competition:

1. I suppose some of my choices worked as proper deal breakers, as usual. :geek:

2. While I didn't really expect to even make it to round 2, losing so clearly against a list with such a limited scope is still sort of disheartening. :x

3. But the crux: I'd rather be "quirky", "wacky" and misunderstood than boringly BCB-friendly. :P
