Results from last round...

I get my second winner with ironically the band I was going to pick on the round I won last time (for the body round I was originally going to pick Heart of Glass), as a result I'm back to 2 points behind Adam heading into the last round.
The two way duke out for the top though carries on with Tino getting 9 and Compelling getting 8 points, either are worthy winners due to their consistency each & every round.
Dancingweeman scores a respectable 8 points for his leftfield pick of Martika.

Table heading into the final round...

"Now, if I may digress momentarily from the main stream of this evenings symposium, I'd like to sing a song which is completely pointless but which is something I picked up during my career as a tist. this may prove useful to somebody some day perhaps, in a somewhat bizarre set of circumstances. it's simply the names of the chemical elements set to a possibly recognizable tune.

There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium,
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium,
And nickel, neodymium, neptunium, germanium,
And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium,
Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium,
And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium,
And gold and protactinium and indium and gallium,
And iodine and thorium and thulium and thallium.

There's yttrium, ytterbium, actinium, rubidium,
And boron, gadolinium, niobium, iridium,
And strontium and silicon and silver and samarium,
And bismuth, bromine, lithium, beryllium, and barium.

Isn't that interesting?
I knew you would.
I hope you're all taking notes, because there's going to be a short quiz next period.

There's holmium and helium and hafnium and erbium,
And phosphorus and francium and fluorine and terbium,
And manganese and mercury, molybdenum, magnesium,
Dysprosium and scandium and cerium and caesium.
And lead, praseodymium, and platinum, plutonium,
Palladium, promethium, potassium, polonium,
And tantalum, technetium, titanium, tellurium,
And cadmium and calcium and chromium and curium.

There's sulfur, californium, and fermium, berkelium,
And also mendelevium, einsteinium, nobelium,
And argon, krypton, neon, radon, xenon, zinc, and rhodium,
And chlorine, carbon, cobalt, copper, tungsten, tin, and sodium.

These are the only ones of which the news has come to Harvard,
And there may be many others, but they haven't been discovered.
Now, may I have the next slide please?
Got carried away there."

A bit of 80's nostalgia and Sting. What's not to like?

Goddess on a highway is an absolute beaut of a track, stated to the nominee when they picked it that I would have gone for that.

Agree Hero, if I only had one vote it would probably get it which, given how much I love both the Roses and the Small Faces, is one hell of a compliment.

Gonna have to ignore not picking ones I feel people have just shoved in for votes as its a poor selection. Spandau Ballet (it bred the Joey/Carlton chant), Roses (although this song does irritate me in equal measure) and Nirvana.

There were a few bands from around that time that were pretty decent but never really reached the heights, Aqualung, Grandaddy, Flaming Lips, Turin Brakes, Gomez etc, think there was a band backlash post Britpop.

There's some good songs but it just feels like the Stone Roses, Beatles and some other bands have been done to death already.

Opus 40 is a better track off that album.

Went to see Mercury Rev in Edinburgh in either 1999 or 2000. Very intimate gig, about 50 people max. I was so bloody ill after it though. I think I got cholera or something drinking jock tap water.

This probably explains why I was ill. Not a bad gig, flaming lips in support

As it stands this round...

2 of the 4 possible title winners are leading the group. Another of the top four is chasing them.
One of the top four looks to have blown their chances.
