Happy New Year, everyone.

Well, we’re at that time again, when we look back at the year that was in the Battle and acknowledge songs that proved a hit with voters. 

After 45 weeks, including one rest week, welcome to the Season IX Battle of the Bands Play-Off Week 1. 

This week we re-visit the most popular of the least popular songs used this past season - the ones that were voted last in their respective weeks - the Tin, the Participant, the Pewter, the fourth place. 

The hosts who selected these 10 songs should probably be congratulated, perhaps more so than in any other week, as they obviously picked very even songs in their weeks for their last placed songs to make it this far. 

As some people may not be sure of how the play-offs are determined, please refer to BATTLE OF THE BANDS GUIDELINES (including how play-offs work), currently located near the bottom of on page 2 of this forum, or feel free to ask here.  

If any host wishes to know where your choices finished in the rankings, by all means drop me a line at darrenjray@bigpond.com or just ask away here. 

Incidentally, in case you’re not aware, all Season IX results are also currently locatable near the bottom of page 2 of this section.  

So without further ado, here are the best of the worst (and your choices for this week). 


All Along the Watchtower (The Jimi Hendrix Experience - 1968) (39 points, 19.50%) (Week 2 - Larry Franz)

Kleines Surfer Girl (Die Strandjungs - circa 1993) (33, 23.57) (Week 13 - D.A.N)

It's Over Now (The Beach Boys - circa 1977/1993) (37, 20.56) (Week 16 - Cindy Hood)

Summer in Paradise (live) (The Beach Boys 1993/1997) (35.5, 19.72) (Week 20 - Darren J. Ray)

FM (No Static at All) (Steely Dan - 1978) (33, 22.00) (Week 28 - Cindy Hood)

Maybe I Know (Lesley Gore - 1964) (35, 20.59) (Week 29 - Larry Franz)

Down Among the Dead Men (And the Band Played On) (album version) (Flash and the Pan - 1978) (40, 22.22) (Week 31 - stkilda4ever)

How Can I Be Sure (The Young Rascals - 1967) (39, 21.67) (Week 33 - Al Forsyth)

My Baby Loves Lovin’ (White Plains - 1970) (37, 21.76) (Week 37 - Darren J. Ray)

Blue Monday (New Order - 1983) (35, 21.87) (Week 41 - bonnie bella)



The clips have been posted below. 

Throughout the play-offs, I will list all links previously used by the respective hosts excepting where clips have been taken down for copyright infringement. 

I have sought the approval of substitute clips from the hosts whose selections this has affected. 

All clips this week are the originals used by the hosts.

A big thanks to everyone around the globe who has cleared the clips throughout the year to help hosts prepare their weeks. It’s really appreciated. 

Still, if any of these links do not work for you now, just let me know and we’ll endeavour to find an alternative clip. 

As per previous seasons, I ask you to vote using either one of three methods. 

Ideally, people will vote 1-10 (in their order of preference).

If this appeals to you, you can copy and paste the titles (just below) into your post and put next to each song your order (1 = favourite song, 10 = least favourite song). 

Otherwise, feel free to just vote for your top 3 or top 5 in order.(The songs you don't rate will then be allotted equal points of the remainder.) 

Incidentally, this week’s winner does not progress. We are searching for only the ultimate Gold, Silver & Bronze songs of the year. 

See you next Monday (with the results).

We will then venture into the Battle of the Bronzes.

1st. Hey, Soul Sister (Train - 2009) (20, 12.50; 0 Golds, 0 Silvers, 4 Bronzes, 12 Tins) (Week 19)

12 - Eye of the Tiger (Survivor - 1982) (Week 10)
       Heads You Win-Tails I Lose (The Beach Boys - 1962) (Week 15) 
       Hey, Soul Sister (Train - 2009) (Week 19)

       I Must Be Dreaming (Neil Sedaka - 1961) (Week 9)
       Summer in Paradise (live) (The Beach Boys 1993/1997) (Week 20) *
       Fantasy Girl (album version) (38 Special - 1981) (Week 39)
 
10 - Bride (San Fermin - 2017) (Week 6) 
       Lay Down (Candles in the Rain) (single edit) (Melanie with The Edwin Hawkins Singers - 1970) (Week 7)
       Skinny Legs and All (Joe Tex - 1967) (Week 17)
       American Woman (album version) (The Guess Who - 1970) (Week 21)
 
* still made its play-off 
 
 
Let’s re-visit the worst performed song of the year for the last time. 
 
 
 
The worst performed BW/BB association song of the year, clearly, was 'Heads You Win-Tails I Lose' (The Beach Boys - 1962) (Week 15), ranked #43 from the 44 Tins. 

It scored just 19 points and 12.67% of the vote from 15 voters.
 
It has the worst score ever for a Beach Boys record or, in fact, any BB/BW associated song. 

‘Stoked’ (from Surfin USA) had been the previous holder of this dubious honour with 23 points and 14.37% from 16 voters, back in Week 2 of Season II (Al Forsyth). 
 
 
 
The Tin song with the least Tins for the year was 'Kleines Surfer Girl' (Die Strandjungs - circa 1993) from D.A.N’s Week 13, with just three Tins. It features in this week's play-off. Only four points split Gold and Tin that week, currently the closest week we’ve ever had. 

 
The all-time record for Tins in a week still stands at 18 for that killer-diller ‘Mary Ann Regrets’ (Burl Ives - 1962) (Week 12, Season V), a song that had everything - a class struggle, an absolutely tragic death AND world travel! It also picked up three Golds that week. 
 


 
The lowest all-time score, both in points and percentage, is still ‘Die Trompeten Von Mexiko’ (Helge Schneider - 2007) (Week 38, Season II) with 15 votes from 15 voters and 10% of the vote. It remains the only song to ever receive unanimous Tins. I suspect Cantina is still proud of that achievement.

Tinny kind of week. Here's to tin and other less precious metals.

1. Jimi Hendrix is all over it. How did this get here? Many consider him the greatest guitarist of all time. Shame he has to defend his pick here. 

2. Steely Dan. It's party time, indeed. The oddly alluring Steely Dan. Go you good thing, go.

3. Blue Monday. Because I grew up with that ship and that harbour.

4. Down Among The Dead Men. A hidden (or some might say buried) surprise. Not given enough of a chance, this tune.

5. Lesley Gore. Okay, so I played this pretty loud and twice. Not saying I like it (but I like it). This is a typical Larry earworm.

6. It's Over Now. Well, I like it. Screw everybody else's opinion.

7. White Plains. Who hasn't walked around with a big love heart pasted on your butt? If you've said "no', I don't believe you for a second.

8. The Young Rascals. Not rascally enough. 

9. The Bummer Song. Really?? What was going on here when this was considered a good idea for release? Pass me a bucket.

10. What a week this was. Thanks, DAN, for pushing the boundaries and also providing us with this steaming pile of ....  kleinsurf.









One of the great pleasures of this time of year is trawling through these songs and reading everybody's opinion. Small things ...

1. Down Among the Dead Men (And the Band Played On) (album version) (Flash and the Pan - 1978)
Deserved to be the top ranked Tin at the end of the season with a high 40 points. Some Golds didn’t even get that, and this got mine in Week 31. Depressing subject but epic record. Still can’t believe James Cameron didn’t use this instead of that Celine Dion ‘heart will go on’ rubbish. Listen to the Captain Smith verse and the orchestration underneath. It conveys a temporary, almost feeling of hope before we’re reminded he has no control of the voyage’s destiny and the demise of 1,500 souls. The production perfectly captures the ship on its inexorable journey, as George Young closes with, “into history”. You can almost hear the alarm bells as the band plays on. We were spoilt for great pop songs in the late ‘70s. This should’ve been an even bigger hit. Vanda & Young could do no wrong. RIP George. 
 
Here’s an original promo clip for the song…
 
2. Maybe I Know (Lesley Gore - 1964) 
My favourite Lesley Gore song. Catchy as. We do it in our ‘60s show. Saw Lesley live with the Legends of Rock tour here in ’89. She was the best act. Looking at the clip, she had lovely eyes. Pity she batted for the other side, but considering the amount of crap she had to put up with from guys in her songs (‘It’s My Party', ’That’s the Way Boys Are’ and this), it’s little wonder. 
 
The next two were both mine, but I gave them Tins in their weeks….
 
3. My Baby Loves Lovin’ (White Plains - 1970) 
It’s like a favourite chewy; delicious at first, but the flavour doesn’t last too long. Lovely clip. There is conjecture on the net as to whether it’s Tony Burrows on the actual lead vocal here. If anyone is interested, I present the case in my original votes/comments towards the end of my Week 37.
 
4. Summer in Paradise (live) (The Beach Boys 1993/1997)
Would get my Gold in many weeks here. Catchy-as song with lyrics by Mr Positivity - the best lyricist the Beach Boys ever had and certainly the most commercially successful. If Brian had been involved in the song, most people on this site would be feting it. Anyway, great to hear the band pulling it off live, including Carl in his last years. This live version from 1993 features Bruce doing his best Roger McGuinn vocal impersonation. Whichever version, it’s a terrific song. 
 
Now it starts to get hard. These are a long way back….
 
5. How Can I Be Sure (The Young Rascals - 1967) 
As Felix Cavaliere stated, this song probably would not have happened without 'Yesterday' or 'Michelle'. The concertina is a nice addition, but what would the group be doing in France? The weather line had already been used in 'Happy Together' a few months earlier. This got my Tin in a strong week. 
 
6. It's Over Now (The Beach Boys - circa 1977/1993) 
This song must be cursed. It’s a lovely melody, a lyric that is just going, with a tender string arrangement by Dick Reynolds. Inexplicably, it didn’t get a release in the ‘70s. Then, when it saw the light of day in 1993 on Good Vibrations: Thirty Years of The Beach Boys, we got this version. The track has been slowed down; apparently, a mastering error. Mark Linett – really??? Carl sounds drunk. Brian’s cigarette voice chimes in for the line about ‘shades of blue and purple haunt me’ and, just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, suddenly MARILYN (eek!) starts singing… all at the wrong speed! I’ve read it was written for and sent to Frank Sinatra, but that Brian never got a reply. Not surprising if this was the version they sent him. 
 
7. All Along the Watchtower (The Jimi Hendrix Experience - 1968)
His music never connected with me, but an interesting Dylan cover. 
 
8. Kleines Surfer Girl (Die Strandjungs - circa 1993) 
I checked out this band’s history. They were Deutsch dags. Seeking the release date of this didn’t provide a definitive answer. Discogs doesn’t know. I wrote to a former member, Guntmar Feuerstein. He didn’t even know. 
 
The last two were like an appointment with the all-night dentist and almost as long….
 
9. Blue Monday (New Order - 1983)
Sounds better with headphones on. But listening to something else. 
 
10. FM (No Static at All) (Steely Dan - 1978) 
Their music has its place – just not in my music collection. What’s a steely Dan?

Hey Darren and others, I want to take full credit for including Train's "Hey Soul Sister" in my "All About Soul" battle in week #19. A massive international hit in 2010 (see more below), it could not hold its own against stiff competition that week ("Sweet Soul Music" - Arthur Conley, "Soul Sacrifice" - Santana, and "Soul Searchin'" - Solomon Burke), which resulted in one of the closest battles all year for the top three positions, with only three points separating the top three songs. 

Interestingly, "Hey Soul Sister" was far and away the biggest selling and highest charting international hit among that week's battle, garnering sixteen international #1 chart positions in 2010, it had the second largest number of digital sales that year, and at the time was one of the all-time biggest selling digital singles by a rock band, with 6.4 million digital sales by 2014. 

"Hey Soul Sister" reached #1 for seven weeks in the Netherlands and four weeks in Australia, as well as for lesser periods in other countries. in the 2010 year-end charts, it was #1 in the Netherlands and for US Pop songs, #3 on the US Hot 100 charts, #3 in Hungary, #4 in Australia, #5 in Germany, and #6 in Canada. It was a weekly Top 10 chart hit in 18 countries in 2010. It was also a Grammy Award winner in 2011.

Thus, this song was no cheap bottom feeder in the weekly battle intended to push more votes to the other songs, but rather a major international hit known around much of the world that didn't connect with our battle participants. Our participants here certainly saw it as an inferior "soul" song in Week 19 compared to its strong competition and it readily fell to the bottom in the weekly battle and the weakest showing in all of this year's battles. Let's just say it lost to stronger competition within that week's battle theme. And it also goes to show that major chart success does not necessarily equate to success in our weekly battles. 


With all that said about this year's weakest ranking song, I still tip my hat to Cantina for my all-time favorite bottom-feeder song in our nine years of weekly battles, "Die Trompeten von Mexiko" by Helge Schneider, as the most entertaining song and video. I still laugh aloud every time I see and hear that video. And besides the multi-talented performance of Helge Schneider himself, I never cease to be amazed at the stellar performance of the bald maraca player next to Helge, whose talent on the maracas easily matches Mike Love's talent on the saxophone. He even looks a lot like Mike during his late 60s Maharishi years. Thank you, Cantina, for that entertaining gem!

Thanks, Tom. 

I know 'Hey, Soul Sister' was an international hit.

So was 'Kokomo'.

So was 'Don't Give Up on Us' by David Soul. 

So was 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz. In 2005. To my ears, 'Hey, Soul Sister', released four years later, sounds just like it.

Exactly how stiff its competition was in Week 19 will be borne out, one way or the other, in the next couple of weeks.

Sssshhh! That's our secret.

Gold - The Rascals - How Can I Be Sure - (sing it Eddie) Bonnie's comment was funny though
Silver - The Dan - FM The groove was always there
Bronze - Jimi - All Along the Watchtower - it looks as though this will win unless the late voters change things up. 
Fourth - Lesley Gore - Maybe I Know - our high school band guitar player backed her later shows - he didn't like her! I only like the song. 
Fifth - The Boys and a Lady -- It's Over Now - strange little ditty that has some cool things goin' - Brian, Carl and Marilyn crying to Frank.

All the others tie for the 3 points.  Can't discern, or want to hear them again. 


Thanks Darren for the work that you do to get this to happen!

"Heads You Win" had serious competition, however. Not that I wanted it to score low:

Elvis Costello, "Alison"
The Beach Boys, "Heads You Win, Tails I Lose"
The Who, "My Generation"
Brian Wilson, "Melt Away"


Ok, it wasn't that much fun. In retrospect, if I wasn't going to use "Surfin' Safari", I should have gone with "Chug-a-Lug". Now that would have been fun!




PS: I like "Stoked" a lot, but might have given it Tin too.

Gold - Pipeline (The Chantays - 1963) (58)
Silver - Walk Don't Run (The Ventures - 1960) (42.5)
Bronze - Let's Go Trippin' (Dick Dale and the Del-Tones - 1961) (36.5)
Tin - Stoked (The Beach Boys - 1963) (23)

Thanks very much for the votes and comments so far to Larry, Cindy, John B, stkilda4ever, t, bonnie and Al. 

stkilda4ever, congrats on your first play-off entry. 

Larry, this is the record for Surfin' Safari....

Surfin' Safari (a Gold in Week 28 of Season III - D.A.N),
Chug-A-Lug (a Bronze in Week 11 of Season VII - Tom Tobben), 
409 (a Gold in Week 34 of Season III - Deb#1; a Bronze in Week 13 of Season V - Peter Simpson), 
Surfin’ (a Silver in Week 28 of Season IX - Cindy Hood),
Heads You Win-Tails I Lose (a Tin in Week 15 of Season IX - Larry Franz), 
Summertime Blues (a Silver in Week 13 of Season VI - paul g adsett)


Of the studio albums comprising of new or almost new material – and not counting oddities/rare versions – only four Beach Boys albums have not spawned any play-off contestants as yet. They are Surfin’ Safari (1962), Little Deuce Coupe (1963) (although the single version of ‘Be True to Your School’ has twice made play-offs), The Beach Boys (1985) and Summer in Paradise (1992) (this week's entry is a live version from the following year).

Personally, I'd be interested to know how 'Little Girl (You're My Miss America)' would go. 


The worst performed Beach Boys or BB/BW associated tracks over the last nine seasons are the following:


Heads You Win-Tails I Lose (The Beach Boys - 1962) (Week 15, Season IX, Larry Franz) (19 points, 12.67% from 15 voters)

Route 66 (Jeffrey Foskett - 1999) (Week 25, Season IX, Lee Marshall) (22, 15.71, 14 voters) *

Stoked (The Beach Boys - 1963) (Week 2, Season II, Al Forsyth) (23, 14.37, 16 voters)

The Bright Light of Glasgow (Celsi, Bragg & Maitland - 2017) (Week 31, Season VIII, paul g adsett) (23, 15.33, 15 voters) *

Comin’ On Too Strong (Wayne Newton - 1964) (Week 42, Season III, Jo McGuire) (24, 13.33, 18 voters)

America I Know You (Stephen Kalinich - 1969/2008) (Week 43, Season II, Paul Adsett) (24, 16.00, 15 voters)

Monster Mash (The Beach Boys - 1964) (Week 43, Season IX, Tom Tobben) (24, 18.46, 13 voters)

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town (The Beach Boys - 1964) (Week 45, Season IX, MaryNYS) (26, 17.33, 15 voters) *

Be True to Your School (live) (The Beach Boys - 1981) (Week 1, Season IX, The Egg) (27.5, 17.18, 16 voters)
