Just tied Martha in the third round after losing the first two. I'm starting to think I won't be winning any of these...

:D

Damn. The two tracks I originally had on my list of 10 but excluded and pared away to get down to 8 have both come up on other's lists and done remarkably well. Doh!

When Martha split off the annual yawn cup and created a new forum for we gladiatorial specialists, somehow or other we lost the quick reply box at the bottom of the page, which makes it difficult for me to do my usual write as you listen schtick. So I have to access both vids on youtube, and pause them, then post reply, and basically have three windows open every round. Which may be a first world problem, but is still a faff.
Just saying, although if some kind admin could sort it out, I would be grateful.

Once, just once, it would be nice if the Dawg could get drawn against something that is less than great – it's not as if there haven't been some clunkers, although most seem to be in the other group. :D

Safe bets seem to be Eddie Cochran and Wanda Jackson.

I didn't pick any Ricky Nelson because I thought he'd be all over this thing like Wanda Jackson. I should have.
