That's the spirit! Although maybe wait until we've eliminated your Cup List first...like next Sunday....

Out in the first round again, and I even picked some tracks with a tune this time. You bunch of absolute bastards.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

The Cup used to begin in March, you know. I clinched it in late May, early June, 2007. The next year, that Penk said (Oldham accent) "Ooh, it's January, everyone! Time f't 2008 BCB Cup!" and everyone else went (sort of high-pitched, poncy accents) "Ooh, yeah, that's a good idea! Griff won't mind only being King of BCB for nine or ten months instead of the full year!"

Cunts.

I think blaming Russian hackers for defeat will be big this year.

I'm surprised by the hatred of Franz Ferdinand. That was good pick.

Thank you I was surprised as well. I happen to really love that track.

Totally slaughtered in the first round. Cloth eared cunts. Sorry my list was "weird" and that I only picked "good" instead of "great" Dylan and EWF.

Actually I've got no idea what made my list "weird". Sorry I got the link for The Human League wrong, 15 posts somehow missed that fact. Wonder why?

Thanks to Martha for doing a stellar job this year.

You didn't get as much of a kicking as me, at least. Which track did you mean to pick, btw, Human League or Heaven 17? Wouldn't have changed my vote, either track would've been the best from your list for me. Though the NIN wasn't bad.

Just as well, my heart wasn't in it this year. I would, however, be grateful to anyone who would be kind enough to explain what 'theme' they thought I was going for. Looking over the songs, I can't find a whole lot in common.

... becuz we 15 are all idjuts who didn't pay close enough attention to titles matching tracks when we clicked links (which presumably includes the people in the 15 who voted for you) as it was our responsibility to spot such things... instead of yers?

oh wait. you voted in the front 15, too. you didn't spot it, either.

p.s. and yes, martha's doing a kickass job.

Why would I click the link to listen to something I'd already picked and knew? I'm a idjut for picking stuff I like rather than try to play the odds.

Man, the old guard is going down fast. Makes me kinda glad I was slow on the uptake this year.
