Wow, impressive sequencing Tom!  And you found a 14!

Don't worry, 12 and 12 makes one whole day.

British indie rock, The Noisettes.

Larry you have no idea how much I love this song and how impressed I am that you know it!!! You've just scored so many points in my book! Haha.

Bonnie this is a fantastic game! (And a good week!) kudos!

My vote this week is
The White Stripes for the GOLD
Maroon 5 for the SILVER
Brian Wilson for the BRONZE and
10cc for the TIN

To be honest I didn't get past Larry's post so I don't know what we're up to. So I'll clear the board for safety's sake (and I'm not sorry for my choice hahaha)


I love this song and I'm sorry if it's been posted already. Or maybe you all hate it but either way, it's a winner for me.


This is really a little cheat on my behalf. The song is actually called Seasons of Love from the Broadway musical RENT! (to my dismay) but I found a lyric video that I think technically counts.

You're an absolute shocker Darren J Ray

Kacey Musgraves:  Burn One with John Prine = perfect!

Lionel Richie and the Commodores getting somewhat sappy:

Groove out to the FOUR Tops - I Can't Help Myself - Sugar Pie Honey Bunch

Darren, take the groove over the production ANY day.  When you have Marvin putting it down you're in good [smile]

NotJermia, here's one you might like. Admittedly, it's not in the Tony Orlando & Dawn league...

NotJermia -- I'm glad you like the Grizzly Bear song so much. I've got a couple of their albums, that one and "Yellow House" (and now I've got points too!).

The Black Keys, "Ten Cent Pistol", Brothers, 2010

Hi NotJermia, very happy to see you back and voting!  [smile]

Larry has excellent taste, so I'm not surprised he had something there for you.  It was some of the stuff he and a few others were putting up that drew me to the Battle.  Great contributions too, thanks so much.

As the weekend nears, the last voters should roll in from the sunny, sleepy summertime side of the world.

Darren - that Panic! At the Disco song is great, you have good taste it seems (appart from your Proclaimers - 500 Miles bashing earlier).

Larry - I've never even met anyone who knows that song before I've showed it to them! I'm still in shock.

Bonnie - thank you! I'll see you in the coming weeks I'm sure! [smile]

No. 11!

Finger Eleven - Paralyzer

Has this old Johnny Mathis song been used yet?


And here's a two-for-the-price-of-one selection:


All the young girls love Alice:


"We've got nothing in common,
We can't talk at all.."


We are mere mortals on this earth, as this Eagles nugget by the late Glen Frey illustrates:


And here's a popular group harmony tune that young Brian Wilson would have avidly listened to as a young teen:

Having huge problem listening to tracks or following the thread here on my phone in Holland . So from memory my votes :
Gold . White Stripes
Silver. 10cc
Bronze: Brian
Tin:Maroon 5

This is probably totally out of sequence but we have had an Eddie Floyd hits album on in the car . A different version of 634 5789

here's a few favourites:
1,
a pair of old hippy-dippy performers mis-doubling up the single digit
(thet were originally on john peel's dandelion record label.
they also recorded an album called 'dark side of the moon',
before that pink outfit did so
- seek it out, it's a good listen, with the title track at least, not dissimilar to the floydian vibe).
peter hope-evans (harmonica / jew's harp) played and recorded with pete townshend
as part of pete's deep end band.
here they are in a tv studio
with an audience that has no clue what's going on,
other than look bored and clap on command,
with their biggest uk hit:


and 2,
a bit of  ennui in the suburbs:


or 3,
how about a nightmare (in los angeles) power cut song,
recorded here with 'a bunch of weirdos in a parking lot'
by a very exciting live  band outside capitol records la?


oh, here's a couple of numbers from one of the very bestest bands ever:
4 from 'london calling':

7 from 'sandinista':


which leads us to another double number 7,
with its prediction of dread times ahead
(well, 7.7.77 was in the future at the time,
when marcus garvey prophecied...)
one of my very favourite reggae numbers:


plus, 54 - 46,
a great reminder of a past conviction,
from a great performer
(though this live version is a trifle fast for easy skanking)


and, finally, back to zero,
with an early album title track
(coincidentally, or not 'electric los angeles sunset' 
is probably the best number on the album)
by a splendid songster ho still performs finely:


cheeeeers
