As long as it’s not the interminable song vs song format, I don’t mind. 8+3 probably if you’re looking for a call.

This i'll be like one of those BCB ties where you think you're winning quite comfortably and then there'll be 9 votes in a row for 12 + 4 or something!

10 + 5 - 4 votes
8 + 3 - 8 votes
5 + 2 - 1 vote
1 v 1 - 1 vote
6 + 3 - 1 vote
12 + 5 - 1 vote

Well it's certainly looking like 8+3. Ugh. I like 5's and 10's. They make my OCD happy and really even 5+5 is better for me, because 3 is really a shite number to add each round...with 5 you can include stuff that the masses approve and stuff that is precious only to you as well without it all being too niche. It's how I make it to round 3 most years. With three tracks I can't go forward unless I just straight up play to the masses. So boring.

I like the long lists too, but most people have just tired of that sadly, and can't muster the time or energy to go through them properly.

Hopefully, shorter lists means people will listen to all the songs though. That's a good thing.

Don't forget, you're in charge. Make these scumbags dance to your tune.

Sounds like _Fishy’s making excuses for his first round exit already.

He's hoping to get martha on his side, so she might throw him a pity vote.

Blimey, that was quick.

Right. Would anyone have a fit if we do 10+5?

You're the boss, martha.

Exactly. Don't let the riff raff decide for you. If anyone has a problem with it, let them run the show.

I'm fine with 10+5. I'm also fine with 8+3 for what it's worth.

Lady Gaga will go down very well. Perhaps a couple of tracks?

Nonsense. It's not a dictatorship. Getting people to "run the show" is not a problem, I'd do it.
