Anyone compiled their final 5 songs yet? I'm fucked if I can think of anything that will win votes that isn't also going to fall foul of my "not picking obvious tunes" rule. Looks like it's going to be Bourbonese Qualk all the way.

I have. Kind of.

They'll be the blindingly obvious ones. Obviously.

I'd love that! :P


Although knowing BCB, it would probably turn out extremely boring :mrgreen:

The collective music taste of BCB is actually getting worse.
It's another thing I need to add to my list of " things that add to the decline of western civilisation".

Bloody hell, that was hard work, people - the '90s wasn't THAT hard to live through, surely!

I can't believe I didn't get to the finals, etc.

Reading the comments I'm glad I hardly bothered with this cup.

What a bunch of sour cunts.
