you really need to hear this track, david. if i'm honest, big star are a bit overrated when they rock out (they're cursed with this - it's all a bit forgettable, hence the dog's antipathy) but their pop songs and ballads are just about as good as it gets.

That's a spot on analysis of Big Star.


It is indeed. Keep on drinking!

A depressing result, really. Doesn't bode well for those with taste

Harvey's list definitely didn't deserve such a thrashing.

God Only Knows - The Beach Boys (+1 - these days I'm not so sure about this song. I'm not marking down on grounds of unoriginality. It is good though.)
London Calling - The Clash (+1 - ah! the second Clash choice in two ties which I'm not so sure about)
Son Of A Preacher Man - Dusty Springfield (+3)
Each and Every One - Everything But The Girl (0)
Love Spreads - Stone Roses (+1)
Tower Of Song - Leonard Cohen (0)
Messiah Ward - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (0)
Up for the Down Stroke - Parliament (0)
Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead (+2 - a bold choice really)
Jeepster - T. Rex (0)

b...

My New House - The Fall (0)
Wedding Song - Bob Dylan (0 - fuck that's two artists who I love with songs I don't know)
High Voltage - AC/DC (0)
Down at the Rock and Roll Club - Richard Hell & The Voidoids (0)
Tonight - The Soft Boys (0)
Ashes Of American Flags - Wilco (+2 - at last, something I can definitively like!)
Fugitive Kind - Paul Westerberg (0)
Thirteen - Big Star (0)
Nazi Apocalypse - Simply Saucer (0)
Albuquerque - Neil Young (0)

Fuck, I feel really bad on B - unfamiliarity on my part (and not through esostericness on theirs) has scuppered the list. It looks really interesting, but a few big hitters take it for A.


Oh yeah, your scoring system is a pile of poo.

Not that one more vote for me would've mattered.

B isn't really my taste, though it does boast a great Fall track.

Overall, there's more for me to enjoy on A, so it gets my vote.
