I can't believe that four of my nominations are still standing.
Well there you are :tup:

Didn't I do well on the deciding vote with one of your nominations even though I had voted for Arctic Monkeys :P

Outside of the 50's to the 70's the poll is littered with songs I really cannot listen to anymore. Hence the megre voting

Two more draws to resolve

Four great songs

David Bowie 'Moonage Daydream' 6-6 Genesis 'Supper's Ready'
Jam 'Down In The Tube Station At Midnight' 6-6 Talking Heads 'Psycho Killer'

As is generally the case I'll choose one song I didn't vote for to go through to the semi-finals

David Bowie 'Moonage Daydream' - can't believe this wonderful album track from The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust...with the immense guitar solo from Mick Ronson has struggled to make the semi's, may not be one of his popular hits but one of his greatest songs all the same

Talking Heads ' Psycho Killer' - love the Jam song but this David Byrne song is also a cracker
