First topic message reminder :

Round 3 is in the books and Marvin Gaye came out on top of Elvis Presley and Don McLean.

Round 4 promises to be a fierce affair, the array of familiar songs I personally could select is staggering. Although clearly Britpop isn't to everyone's tastes. Poor Union was so befuddled by it all he's sitting this round out meaning he adds a 4th 0 to his score.

Go forth and vote (for your favourite TWO).

Round 5 will be a corker because you'll all be selecting songs by your favourite boybands. Before you ask, The Beatles are not a boyband. The Rolling Stones are not a boyband.

NOTE: A boyband is a group of two or more male vocalists that did not play instruments themselves and went under a silly alias like 911 or A1.

Why would you do a round of boybands only on a mostly male forum based around sports, I hear you ask? Because it'll amuse me to get PMs from grown, often professional working men, filled with their favourite song by 5ive.

Reasons for some of the choices from the good folk who selected them:

song 2 by Blur please - When that killer "woohooo" kicks in, everyone recognises the song and starts moshing. Iconic and defined the whole era.

3) Take That- Relight My Fire

Not as good as new and improved Take That but utterly passable.

One of the most under-rated bands in my book. Should have been a 'Big 3' with them joining Oasis and Blur. Everyone knows their songs from the Different Class album. This is one of their earlier numbers, and one of their best.

Alright - Supergrass ..................... A great summer anthem of a song that was everywhere , and that video got me out on my bike with my mates for numerous drunken pub crawls around the countryside around here .

1st choice - Whatever by Oasis. Not only is it Oasis's greatest song, but it is the best song ever written ever. Ever. EVER!

Charmless Man. During the 90s I was always an 'Oasis Man' out of them and Blur. Since then though I have realised how much I prefer Blur's music.

Common People - Pulp; She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge. Sing along godammit! Geek chic 20 year before its time. Whilst everyone was embroiled in the Blur v Oasis battle, the real Britpop band just got on with creating anthems such as this. Jarvis Cocker, we salute you!

After Hours write up - Not your typical in your face Britpop song, neither the over the top attempts at ballads Oasis did. Listen to it before you vote, its a class song. And Edgar Wright (of Hot Fuzz, Spaced and Shaun of the Dead fame) directed the video.

Any song that contains the line "Strap on Sally chased us down the alley, We feared for our behinds" deserves to win this round! Also has a great guitar intro and a catchy chorus.

Reason: When a list is made of the best songs of the 90s, You Get What You Give shouldn't be missed out. It's a class song by a band which disappeared after releasing it but were totally underrated.

Elastica - 2:1 - had to use the wikepedia link to see which groups count as Britpop & was ecstatic to see that I knew a few, recognise this song from the Trainspotting soundtrack which is enough to earn plaudits on its own

Somehow missed this whole contest...where have I been?
I get a wee bit nostalgic about mid 90's Britpop, good times.
Got to say, looking back, I preferred Oasis at Cardiff Astoria on the Definitely Maybe than Knebworth 2-3 years later (good day that it was with all the other bands as well it was the point that signalled that Britpop (awful term) had reached/passed it's peak.

What people call Britpop to me was just an extension of the evolution of the style of music I've loved since the Pistols and the Clash spiced things up. During the "Britpop" era to me that was Oasis, Pulp, Blur, Cast, OCS & others. I take it the Smiths, The Stone Roses & the Happy Mondays were too early and the likes of the Verve were at the tail end of it?

I would, but the Kylie Minogue track you selected scored you 3 points.

Hero's pick (Common People) was my first choice and Charmless Man is twice the song that Song 2 is!

Song 2 was the least Brit Pop song Blur did at that time.

My favourite Blur song now might be Under the Westway. I didn't pick it here because it wasn't very Britpoppy and I can't imagine it would get many votes.

In hindsight, hanging my hat on Animal Nitrate wasn't smart though.

Soddy, give my three points to Cherries, I beg you. Any Music Cup that has Don't Look Back in Anger as the best britpop song really shouldn't have my name anywhere near it.

Don't Look Back in Anger is my favourite song Laugh

So now you are definitely staying on the list. In fact I am going to make your name bold to make it stand out even more, for your blasphemy.

I would like to point out that the founders also came 2nd and 3rd in the movie cup too!

And I will almost definitely fall away in this cup - I was last last year!
