Vote For The Best DM Song - A Knockout Competition

Postby adriangreen » Tue May 11, 2010 9:57 pm

I'll start this off and see how much interest there is. I'm going to post it on facebook and home too.

I've sat and put every DM track on a spreadsheet in almost exact order, then used this website http://www.random.org/ to generate entirely random pairings for the competition.

This will effectively be a knockout competition of rounds with the winning song from each pairing going forward. For the first round I'll release 5 pairings a week and leave each poll open for as close to three weeks as I can manage.

Where a song appears on a studio album, it will be the album version that should be considered in the competition. Where the track does not appear on any studio album the first generally available version is that which should be considered, I will indicate which version I interpret this to be.

Please do not post your choices in this thread as it will need to be closed but please feel free to post comments on the competition itself.

I have been through all the b-sides and the only slightly contentious track I have chosen to include is Television Set. I will include the instrumentals & links but not tracks such as the Everything Counts Reprise on CTA.

One vote each please, let's see how it goes

Can't seem to post a new topic at the moment on the Home forum. Don't know if it's just me.

If anyone else wants to copy the above posts and post them at Home I'd be grateful.

If not I'll try again tomorrow.

X-mas Island is a good instrumental, and I feel sorry for Shame that had to go up against Precious in it's first match!
