Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Tim's turn this week and he has gone with some 1970's UK prog rock, the industrious Gentle Giant.

11 albums in their 10 years of existence according to Wiki, should be enough songs for everyone.

As ever, noms to be in by 10 pm Sunday evening, leave a link to your chosen song, and come back to finish off the game by voting next week.

Enjoy the weekend when it comes :-)

Brass Neck | 3765 comments The uploader of this video declares, "JOHN WEATHERS IS THE HOTTEST MAN EVER. This video proves it. Check his face while he drums. Sexy." Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I suppose? Big Issue chic?

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Okie dokie then, all done.

First things first, thanks to Jemma for the general maintenance work.

9 voters this week for the 11 noms, not bad, could be better.

Way out front and grabbing the gold, Funny Ways gives SussexWelsh his first win for a while. 3 points behind, and a silver gong for theDuke with Black Cat. And the bronze gets shared between Lez and Spacepig with Isn't It Quiet And Cold? and Giant for a Day.

But, we're not quite finished yet I finally get to dig out the wooden spoons and dust one off for Fishy Jim, it looks like The Boys In The Band just didn't cut it with the voters.

I enjoyed that round though, there was an impressive array of instruments in use. I might have to add to my GG collection at some point, I only have two (Gentle Giant and Octopus).

Fishy_Jim  | 927 comments Kinda expected that.
As Vroomfondel would say: 'Think our minds are too highly trained, Majikthise!'
