Think Roads will probably be my only Q Finalist, biggest surprise is the seminal American band beating the seminal British one ...Pixies over Joy Division

Tbf liggy Because The Night is losing out to one of the great pop songs in Lola.

Can't believe only three of our players voted for Slade's 'Coz I Love You', another cracking pop song

And as for one of the greatest songs never to make the charts in the 60's The Days Of Pearly Spencer, well I despair :(

Also songs from Radiohead, Smiths, Nick Cave, Fugees losing out to artists who hardly get a mention on our music threads is a massive disappointment for me but there you go an element of surprise !

After saying all that I enjoy the majority of the 80 songs in this round which made for some really tough decisions with my voting, maybe a couple I'm not keen on. So many wonderful songs that makes for a great competition :-D

I'm sure Marc Almond did a cover version that charted.
I never knew that the orginal hadn't charted ( amazed )

Bit of overplay syndrome for LWTUA, I always think it's more New Order than JD.

I love both Rappers Delight & the majestic Lets Get It On song from one of the greatest soul albums ever. In the end Mrs 64 & I were clear on our choice so the Sugarhill Gang beauty was the one to miss out, lets face it there is a distinct lack of great soul songs in this poll :(

We were clear on the others although 'Forest' v 'How Soon Is Now' was a very close call for me

We couldn't have two Smiths songs exiting the poll after one of the great songs of all-time surprisingly took a pounding :shock:
