theDuke | 5724 comments Forthcoming Themes:

Theme 266 - Freak Out! Uncut magazine's list of 101 "weirdest albums of all time". There's at least one single A-side on the list (step forward 'Scratch'). The reasons for weirdness aren't always evident from the titles alone (although the exceptions should be obvious), and there's one which you'll never find on discogs; the Merzbow at #100 is actually a written-off Mercedes previously the property of his dutch label boss, with a copy of Merzbow's album "Noisembryo" hardwired into the ignition, so it plays when the car is turned on. He tried auctioning this unique item and got zero bids! - Tim

https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/thread...

Theme 267 - Great instrumental breaks (must be within a "song") - SussexWelsh
Theme 268 - Let's Stick Together; any song title with a word which references a method of sticking one thing to another (join/t, glue, mortar, tie/d, bond, weld, etc ad infinitum) - Brass Neck
Theme 269 - "In The Mood For A Moog" - Songs featuring the Moog synth - theDuke
Theme 270 - "The Happy Organ" - Tracks featuring an organ, the keyboard instrument, of any type. - KJS
Theme 271 - "It's Raining Cats & Dogs" - song titles containing the word(s) cat(s) or dog(s) (or both): state your allegiance if you wish ;-) - Helen
Theme 272 - Old King Cole - songs written by Cole Porter, performed by anyone you like (there are hundreds of them: incomplete list on Wikipedia, examples at Red Hot + Blue) - Gordon
Theme 273 - Get laid - song titles with any form of floor covering eg carpet, tiles, rug, mats, laminate (should be loads of songs about the latter), etc - Brass Neck
Theme 274 - My heroes have always been cowboys, And they still are, it seems... (take it away Willie) - give us a cowboy song you like, bring out your Roys, your Texs and your Genes, your Frankies and Martys, the Saturday-morning serials, or maybe a film or TV theme or soundtrack, any song that has you tilting your hat back and winding up your lasso - Val
Theme 275 - Give me the time of day: Any song title which includes a time of day - Fishy Jim
Theme 276 - Wildcard Round 11

Theme 278 - More Tea, Vicar? - any song title with one of the requirements for a cup of Rosie Lee (cup, tea, leaf, bag, saucer, mug, milk, sugar, etc) - Brass Neck

I could have gone with a nice guitar driven instrumental from Bill Nelson or a King Crimson acoustic cover by Rob Crow, but what the hell... These girls kick bottom!

theDuke | 5724 comments Is it just me or has Val submitted the entire Floodlights debut album? Matter of Time is supposedly a 3 minute song according to Discogs, but the vid is nearly 36 minutes long! Not a bad album though. :)

Just in case, i have found a clip for just the song:

I am not very proficient at technology but I'm very proud that I've now mastered getting the playlists up on the telly in the front room. Today I was able to sit in the winter sun and watch the clips. Last week, I was in the kitchen doing dishes but could still hear them loud and clear.

theDuke | 5724 comments Good evening folks.

And that's the final round for the summer done and dusted. And we end with the two highest scoring songs of the 5 rounds, both reaching the 20s...just.

They are:

The golden shiny one winner: 'Solo Dance' by Michele Mercure, with a 'season' topping score of 21 points...so the final winner is............KJS! Well done that man!

And juuuuust missing out on a gold gong....by one solitary point the song that was leading throughout the voting till Sera came along (!) and pushed Mercure into the lead, but non the less 'Happy' by Bdrmm, takes the 2nd spot, so our former host Nick gains the silver gong.

And finally, a few points back, but with a decent 16 points 'Matter Of Time' by Floodlights, meaning Val collects the Bronze one.

Well done you three, especially to KJS & Nick for finsishing the rounds off with those nice those high scores. A nice way to finish this Summer's round off with.

And we'll do it all again come December for the end of year rounds.....till then! :)
