Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Next up, Rob's nomination, American singer/songwriter John Mellencamp.

I am assuming we can nominate anything under the Cougar name (not sure what the story with that is) but Rob will keep us right if we stray from the subject in hand (I hope).

Nominations as ever to be in by 10pm Sunday, let's see if we can keep the recent revival in numbers going.

Yes, Johnny Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp or just plain old John Mellencamp, it's all good. Given that Bruce Springsteen has already been done long before I joined, this is the best artist that I could have nominated.

theDuke | 5788 comments I'm gonna have to excuse myself from this around..not because I don't like Mellencamp (I don't know him!), but cannot check out his music, as my headphones broke a few days ago. I can't listen to music on my laptop, without them, so not able to find a nom for this round. Currently waiting for new ones to arrive...hopefully, they'll be delivered soon, so I can vote though....much apologizings!

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments A bit of a drop in numbers again this week, but still, 9 can't be classed as a disaster.

3 points apiece then, voting as usual closes at 10 pm on Thursday evening.

Here's the playlist:

Val H. | 15775 comments To counter some of the negativity may I say I've always liked JM. Got three albums by him and have seen him live - a great show!

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments There we go then, all done for another week.

Running away with the gold medal, Sj's nom, Paper In Fire. Second place, and a nice shiny silver gong to this week's nommer, Rob, with Check It Out. And Gordon just grabs the bronze with Jack & Diane.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. We moved house just before Christmas, but we only got a 6 month lease to begin with. That has now been extended indefinitely so I finally put the effort in and totally revamped my hiding space - it's looking awesome :-) Not quite finished yet though, a few finishing touches to go.


message 23: by Rob (new)

Rob Campbell | 477 comments A deserved winner - "Paper in Fire" is his best song, and I would have nominated it had it not already been nabbed! In fact, if I ever make it as a big-time charlie author, sell a million copies (only 999,948 to go) and get asked to appear on Desert Island Discs, "Paper in Fire" would be one of my picks.

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments YAYYY!!! - Congratulations Sj! ... x ;o>

And very well nominated Rob and Gordon ... x x
