Evening all,

So, did anybody get this mini heatwave, that was promised by those who know at the Met Office? I didn't, just grey overcast skies, and not all that warm neither, ho hum.

Okay, it's the turn of the golden oldies next, Jemma is asking us to put forward our fav tracks from the period 1960 to 1990. As simple as.

You know the drill folks, noms and links in the usual fashion by Wednesday, thank you.

Thanks KJS for highlighting the work of this amazing singer. She was all-too-often put in the "country" box but she could sing (and write!) anything from ballads to delta blues. Such a small recorded output from such a talent. I've got "Chickasaw County Child: The Artistry of Bobbie Gentry" and "An American Quilt 1967-1974" on CD - not always easy to find and not always cheap. Play them often.

theDuke | 5785 comments Le vote a pris fin! :)

A fairly even & tightly contested round, plenty of runners this week, but one song is a clear winner.

And that winner is clearly on a roll, cos for the 2nd week running, with his nomination - Baby, Please Don't Go by Them, soaring into to the lead on 26 points, the winner of this round is...yip...it's Gordon..again! :) Great choice though, well done Mr G.

And we have joint 2nd placers this week; 'Baby I Love You So by Colourbox feat Lorita Grahame' & 'Hurdy Gurdy Glissando by Steve Hillage', both scored 19 points, so standing snuggly on the 2nd step of the podium, are the two 'The's' - a la Foe & Duke. Another fine choice by our former host, and thanks to those who voted for mine, very much a wild shot from me, as i'd not heard of Steven Hillage before.

And the theme nominator herself, wins herself a podium place, with My Generation by The Who, with 2 points fewer. Well done Jemma! :)

And finally, the wooden spooner this week, is Collette, as her nom, poor old B.V.S.M.P. failed to impressed us discerning lot! Better luck next time Collette.

Congrats to Gordon, Foe, Me & Jemma & hard luck to Collette.

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments I dunno, maybe I'm just getting old and I don't understand life anymore, very likely.

Simple things confuse me like, how can the Duke say he hasn't heard of Steve Hillage before, when just three short rounds ago, he gave 4 points to exactly the same song he has just nommed in this round?


message 39: by theDuke (new)

theDuke | 5785 comments So I did! I think i'm the one getting old Spacepig! At least as far as my memory is concerned. How odd is that? Yet I did vote on your same nom, and weirdly, it scored exactly the same points too!

I think it's a case of, me subconscious remembered...but not my conscious! :)

I expect someone will point out that I've heard of Brian Thorpe too. but me memory tells me that I haven't!

Age...sh** it! :-)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments "the same song"

i actually noticed that too, but put it down to the fact that as all steve hillage songs sound the same, they're probably all titled the same too!
