Spacepig Pig | 1450 comments I had thought about disallowing this one. It is supposed to be our favourite artist, not a choice between one of three. As far as I am aware, the only thing that connects these three are the surname. Then on further consideration I came to the realisation, hell it's only a game, so let's do it.

So here we go, one track from any of the three named Blues men please, nominations to be in by 10 pm Sunday evening, provide a link to your choice and, no squabbling please :-) (ok, maybe a little bit, it is Brassy's round after all).

Brass Neck | 3679 comments They are 3 seminal bluesmen called King and that IS the reason they're together. Blues is not everyone's taste so I thought I'd lump 'em in together (no rules remember?) so all but the most blues-averse can find something (or not). That said, 80's poppers King emphatically do NOT qualify.

Spacepig Pig | 1450 comments Maybe Blues is more of a niche interest than I had thought, but I was almost certain we would have reached double figures for these three legends.

Not to be, a rather under-whelming eight noms it is, giving us the three point scoring system again.

As ever, votes to be in by 10 pm on Thursday night, no late votes counted.

Here's the playlist:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

And the noms:

Born Under A Bad Sign - Albert King
Feelin' Good (I Wanna Boogie) - Freddie King
The Thrill Has Gone - BB
As The Years Go Passing By - Albert King
Going Down - Freddie King
When Love Comes To Town - BB King/U2
Sweet Sixteen - BB King
The Sky Is Crying - Albert King

Have a good one gang, I noticed we re running a bit low on upcoming nominations. If anyone wants to add any please go ahead.

theDuke | 5607 comments 8 noms, but 10 votes so far!


message 28: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1450 comments And there we go.

A bit of a ding dong battle, but snatching it at the end BB's The Thrill Has Gone gives Jemma the gold. Sharing the silver, Brassy and Val with two of Albert's numbers, Born Under A Bad Sign and As The Years Go Passing By. And the bronze for a Freddie song, Feelin' Good (I Wanna Boogie) nommed by Sera 69.

And as the Duke said, encouraging signs from the voter turnout.
