First topic message reminder :

OK folks so we have finally reached the end of this year’s Culture Cup.  Thank the lord for that.  The last round is a spectacular extravaganza with double points on offer.  With the league table pretty congested at the top, this final effort will crown the first ever Cultural Champion of 606v2.  The question that will separate the men from the boys is Who do you think has made the biggest contribution to the history of British culture?  There are some obvious nominations and some that are very clever.  One or two strange ones as well.  Special thanks to compelling and rich for putting his persons achievements in brackets when he PM'd me.........how thick do you think I am, c&r!  

Before we move on to that, what happened in round 10 and ‘Best song with an emotion or emotional response in the title’…..

The big winner in this round was jbeadle whose pick of Johnny Cash and Hurt helped him pick up his first ever full points haul and moves him effortlessly away from the foot of the table.  Good work, beadle, good work.  There were a few dissenting voices suggesting that the song should have been banned along with Joy Division and Oasis, but those shouts were too late and beadle reaps the rewards.  Dolphins controversial pick was obviously not enough to deter two voters and picked him up some points which is more than can be said for Galted and ChequeredJersey who both failed to convince a single human being to vote for them.  Also without a vote is my father, Julius, but it is no real surprise when you see his song choice.  Tobacco chewing, female line dancers are a definite niche market.  Jeff lost a point to his arch rival, superfly, and it will take the final round to establish who is the better person between them.  It is like choosing between herpes and chlamydia, but there you go.  Hero and compelling and rich continue to be entangled lovers and both finished joint second this round.  Their fight to cultural death will be taken to the very end.  The biggest travesty is that Whitney Houston managed to get any votes, let along more than The Stone Roses, INXS, Nirvana and Radiohead.  I have genuinely lost faith in humanity.  I can only think she got a couple of votes simply for being dead.  Here is the updated league table:

Hero (FEAR): (10) 91
compelling and rich (You've Lost That Loving Feeling): (10) 88
seanmichaels (Motorcycle Emptiness): (7) 81        
Azzy (Friday I'M In Love): (9) 80                
TopHat (I Will Always Love You): (7) 73      
Adam (Crazy): (6) 70  
onlytreblewinners (Happy Birthday): (6) 65
Galted (Psycho Killer): (0) 62      
bhb (Every Day I Love You Less And Less): (8) 62              
Jeff (Ten Story Love Song): (5) 59              
The Womble (Never Tear Us Apart): (5) 57        
Dolphin (R*pe Me): (6) 57        
The Boss (Still In Love With You): (5) 56        
superflyweight (Paranoid Android): (6) 54        
jbeadlesbigrighthand (Hurt): (12) 52      
Union (Don't Fear The Reaper): (7) 51    
JuliusHMarx (You Made This Love A Teardrop): (0) 44      
ChequeredJersey (Feeling Good): (0) 39

So please see the poll for the last round and take your time as it is worth double points.  Again, there will be no vote cancelling and only one pick is allowed.

We have a guest contributor this round with rick_dagless taking the place of Azzy who cried off like the big girls blouse he is, so can we all welcome rick into the fold and don’t bully him for being a newcomer.  It's ain't big and it ain't clever.  Bit like seanmichaels, in fact.

I will leave this up for a few days and then work out who is the Cultural Champion when the votes dry up.

Remember, IT IS OPEN FOR THE WHOLE FORUM TO VOTE!

Mind the windows Tino.

I couldn't quite bring myself to vote for an inventor instead of an artist. Just my personal preference, even if the artist owes the distribution of his work to an inventor.

I'll be on to explain why Tallis has shaped all subsequent music in a bit. I voted Shakespeare as I can't vote for my own choice, but Tallis is to music what Shakespeare is to Literature and then some except that as music has evolved more than literature over 500 years people have forgotten him. That evolution has only occurred because of the great composers like Tallis

By that reckoning Charlemagne is responsible for everything, wish I'd chosen him now instead of trying to pick someone who fitted the given criteria.

Who did you pick union, you do seem very bitter at the minute. Was far easier in the music competition when your pick was easily idenitifiable and so we could chuck you a sympathy vote here and there.

Not telling, as I don't want sympathy votes. I'm a bit disillusioned with life at the moment, mainly due to not getting many votes on here.

Maybe it was just my local area but in my youth (ie pre-the interweb) there always seemed to be a ready supply of material available on roadside verges and in ditches. Not in the best condition, some of it, but fully useable all the same.

Fair enough, got to say though mate Jeremy Kyle was always going to be a risky pick.

When you think of British Culture, I always think of some 18th century printer and the designer of the Clifton suspension bridge.

The votes are really slow in this round. There is normally a flood of votes and then it slows down. This round has started with a whimper.

I've read Twilight too, just to validate my opinion of its awfulness. My opinion was correct, it doesn't just sound awful, it is awful. Just like One Direction Wink

I went out with the girls at work and they were talking about it. I started slagging it off and they said you can't slag it as you haven't read it, because I was drunk I agreed, a day of my life I am never getting back.

15th century you ninny. I bet you think of the works that otherwise wouldn't have been mass produced but for the genius of Gutenberg. Brunel is a stupid pick though, I'll give you that.

Surely Jeremy Kyle has detracted from British culture, not contributed to it?

Having spent plenty of time on a board frequented by Truss and D4, I'm fairly comfortable that I can cope, Tina. Unless it's one of the Nadal or Federer fans that picked Brunel. I'm not arguing with them. I might be Scottish, but I don't have a death wish.

He is lucky I don't still have a green badge and now need Hampo's permission to do pretty much everything round here now.

I had to log in specially to vote for my own so that I'd have at least one vote, which happens to be one more than I received in the previous round.

Christopher Wren for me; you could see his work from my flat all the way across the City and north/east London. Timeless.

I was responsible for the mass extermination of an entire race, so I voted for Hitler.

I watch a lot of porn on the internet so I voted for Tim Berners-Lee.
