FWIW G I would have voted for you in match 4 and Ange in 5, had the kids not woken up and distracted me, so you’d have still lost overall but won my personal final 3-2.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Woohoo! Many thanks again Maarts, stellar work.

Cheers G for the great tracks, i really did love almost all your choices here. And i echo your thoughts on the difficulty of catering to everyone in this kind of "decade" competition, where the choices are so much broader than the genre Cups. Picking the MC5 and the Stooges was more a bit of laziness and 'oh, what the hell' rather than any particular cool statement, though; from memory the 5 have always seemed a bit divisive on here, a Marmite type band. But once i had chosen the Iggy track they popped into my head, and i love that album, so just went with 'Skunk' without really caring if some people didn't like it. I almost picked a Bobby Hutcherson track ... next time.

In the end, were all losers, and all worse off for the experience. Congratulations, fange, for inflicting less dross on us than G. ;-)
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.

Well done Fange, a convincing victory in the final* but some really interesting choice of songs by both contestants and my favourite of the the 10 final songs was chosen by G so that's some consolation at least :D






*I was robbed in the semi-final of course!

But that raw thing.... "Monkberry Moon Delight" knocks spots off of it. But fair play to you for sticking to your guns.
