First topic message reminder :

I really wanted to call this round 'coffin botherers' but I refrained so as not to offend the sensibilities of the wider forum.

Last round was a romp for transgender anthem Lola, followed by Rod Stewarts ode to a slightly morally corrupt woman sleeping with a schoolboy.

Back on more solid ground with this round, so please select your TWO favourite tracks from the poll. Maybe leave a reason why you voted for what you did, or even better, insult the selection of some of the rubbish tracks here.

The next round will be a bit of a narrower field, and I want your album openers. I.e. songs that are first on the album upon which they were originally released. I am taking a stand and refusing to accept compilation/best of albums because they will be all good songs.

Get them into me by Monday morning if you can and we'll get this hopping along.

Leaderboard is on the last round thread if you are so inclined to view it.

Has to be Otis Redding - there's a severe lack of funk and soul in these lists. 
And Jimi Hendrix.

no problem.

Might even pop back and vote for it!

Opening song of album

I wanna be adored - The Stone Roses eponymous debut.

Twiddling ambient noodling metamorphosises and builds track by track from individual elements (each of which I'd happily listen to in isolation) leading into a crescendo of a whole that is greater than the sum of it's parts. It's monumental on the (softer almost poppy) album and stunning as an opener live with a harder edgier feel that does sit in a more rock type situation.


Being as I picked that for the next round can I quote you! That's miles better than what I'd consider writing!

Good call. There was some tripe around that achieved more success!

I want to hear new stuff, all my mates don't.

Brown's songwriting is still hugely strong imo based on solo stuff and they do all work well musically (whether they actually want to or not is the question!)

But for a wider audience I'd suggest that the intro (to the intro) to BiH may well have too much ambient noodling. To me adored is not only a great track, on a great album but that the album structure itself is nigh on perfect and so to have a stand out intro to the first track that fits studio and live (can't test it vs BiH live as they'd never start with anything other than adored) is simply stunning.

I actually prefer the intro to Breaking into Heaven.

The radio edit (IWBA) is terrible. The song doesn't stand up without the intro.

The Second Coming is criminally underrated. Compare the success of that album to the likes of Travis / Dodgy and some of the other tripe around at that time and you can see why they become disillusioned.

Heard Squire say they had some new material on Radio 6 the other day. Whether they record that he wouldn't say.

Al Green has just passed.

Lets Stay together would have been my song if this round would have happened next.

I'm happy with 4 votes for Tchaikovsky. Smile

Can't see me getting any in the next round.

That's no excuse not to vote for my selection, just because you've never heard of it. People will be refusing to vote for a song just because they don't like it next. What is this forum coming to?
