Brass Neck | 3668 comments Do you want the word country/side in the title or can a rural-themed song be nommed?

Val H. | 13890 comments Probably no votes for me but this is one of the most genuine singer/songwriters going round and he's an amateur. His day job is teaching in a secondary school. Going to see him again on Saturday where I'll hopefully pick up his new album. I wonder how many of our selections will offer the other side of "the good life"?

True Jim, but I'll let it go as the song's about the farming life.

theDuke | 5607 comments Evening all.

Okay then...i guess some folks are busy doing other things this week..seeing as we just scraped into double figures with voters..but we have a winner.

The final vote's from Spacepig, changes the leaderboard right at the 11th hour...but once again it's a tight contest between several contenders. With a point each seperating the top three; they are:

In first place, with I'm The Mountain by Stoned Jesus, on 13 points, means Yours Truely picks up the gold medal. And just pipping the song that was leading, but now in 2nd place, Country Boy by The Heptones, so the Techmeister collects a silver, and finally the other mountain - Mountain by All Them Witches, beats off the rest off the competition for 3rd place, so SussexWelsh gets the bronze.

But..sadly..there is a wooden spooner this week, ladies and gents; voters definately 'harboured' *groan* their feelings for The Heath by Last Harbour..so Helen gets another lovely wooden kitchen utensil! Ihope you enjoy baking Helen! :)

Not a bad playlist, another eclectic medley of music styles there.
