    _________________________________________

    1.The River Band - catchy, upbeat and uplifting , and I was singing along . I rarely vote for winners /the podiums but I’m wondering if this round will be an exception.
    2.Aqualung - almost shortlisted but it dragged on and the muffled/megaphone effect just got to me in the end . Neither list
    3.Nirvana - not usually a Nirvana fan but I liked the guitar and most of the vocals
    4.Smashing Pumpkins - was dragging on /did nothing for me , but the horrible distortion hurt my ears and ensured that it was billylisted
    5.Run The Jewels - I wish I could close my ears . The instrumentals hurt my ears , disliked the lyrics /vocals and overall , absolute rubbish
    6.Dub Fx - I liked the reference to classical Indian music , but that was all I liked about it unfortunately . The loop was annoying , but the lyrics were too. I’ll get the billy but this will get a few .
    7.Eb Davis - Pleasant easy listening and what a voice /vocals , but yes it dragged on
    8.Adriano Celantano- I found myself bobbing along and “singing” (putting in my own words in place of the gibberish) in my head . It was better than all right
    9. Big Star - September Gurls - Power pop which would be fun to karaoke to , and the dated guitar just added to the vibe .
    10. weezer - The Greatest Man That Ever Lived - I liked the chorus parts , but not the individual slightly off-tune vocals , and the song just got worse and worse as it progressed into something resembling amateur karaoke .
    11. Marvin Gaya - Headachy repetitive beat to go with the annoying la da da bit . The interesting video and bearable vocals saved it from the billy list
    12. The Fray - as I said , sorry I phoned this in /didn’t check the spreadsheet as I normally would . Love this song due to the lyrics , despite the vocals /overdone video and it makes me cry . Will cop the billy .
    13. Imagination - didn’t mind the supposedly tame piano solo , but this song’s repetitive beat /instrumentals made it feel longer than 4 mins . Nothing very bad about it , but didn’t feel like listening again .
    14. of Montreal - the video was entertaining enough , but couldn’t get over the buzzing or repetitive lyrics .
    15. Moe stood out to me in the video , but nothing else did in a purely musical sense . Firmly neither list as it did nothing to me , but was also inoffensive so didn’t make my billylist either .
    16. Bee Gees - a classic but downvoted in view of the soft reason why it’s bad , and the fact that I’m sick of it due to it being overplayed . This could podium or even win despite the whore factor given the weak and short playlist .
    17. R.E.M - the intro began to put me into REM sleep , but then that horrible noise . The vocals /lyrics were so lovely when they finally started but were ruined by the noise which I couldn’t block out . This is the song I was most torn about - worth a 5 without that horrible headachy noise , but dragged on a little too long and it was truly billyworthy due to that noise ugh . In the end , I settled for a shortlist but no votes .
    18. MGMT - powerful video and narrative and I think the kids screaming just adds to it as opposed to it making the song worse Downvoted due to it podiuming in the past and it being both overplayed and overrated (so it’s not the sort of past podium that I want to see win).
    19. John Farnham - Help - on paper , right up my alley , but in reality , a song I have always liked rather than loved as his voice slightly grates me at stages of this particular song . I shortlisted it but didn’t give it votes the last time it was nommed .
