We'll do Faaip

One of my favourite bands Arcade Fire looks like they have just survived with both their songs v Muse & Adele, close call though ! So many of my other faves eliminated :(

Surprisingly Muse, RHCP, Adele have been picking up a fair share of votes even though they hardly get a mention on our other music threads over many years. That's the unpredictability of this song contest which is not a bad thing as it's almost impossible to predict the winner in each group & the grand final to come !

Here goes

Bowie & the Stones are two of my favourite artists of all-time, not easy :duno:

I voted for 'Freebird' & 'Space Oddity' in the initial quarter-final round so I think it's only fair to drop one of them. Also I'm choosing the two songs I think will be the most competitive

So I'm going for :

David Bowie 'Space Oddity'

And there are no other punk songs in the semi-finals I've plunged for :

Clash 'London Calling'
