Mondo Ray says:
That is just weird. I did the copy and paste and got the lyrics of the song on a Zon.com US music thread. Not to be outdone by our fiendish host, I just typed in Corries youtube and found it! After your comment (which I've just seen) I went back to the nominations thread and copied and pasted again. This time it took me straight to the clip!

Must be tonight's full moon :-)

No worries, you got my points anyway!

Forgot to say closing time, but assumed everyone would guess Tues 11p.m. because of the Public Holiday/QE2 Julie Bee thing.

Only eight voters so far, but about ten hours to go...

Mondo Ray says:
Okay, what an apathetic turnout. Spacepig's Borat got votes of 3, 3 and 2, which just beats RedAlFire's Pete 'n' Dud which got 3, 3 and 1, 1.

Borat 's "Throw The Jew Down The Well" is the winner!

Not sure about continuing this, as much as I enjoy it, but only 8 people arsed to vote over a 48-hour open span? Meh.

Well done Spacepig.

Sincere apologies Ray, I've just checked back and realised i havent voted!! I assumed that I had voted yesterday.
To make it worse, unfortunately, my vote wouldve changed the outcome :/

Sorry to say, I for one have run out of ideas. The only one I had thought of nomming isn't available to listen to anywhere but Spotify and it's been a real struggle finding anything to vote for.

I understand your disappointment Mondo, but it's a culture that appears to be spreading to all of the nom & vote games, not just this one. I'm sure in some cases it's just forgetfulness (re SJB's post) or a case of there simply being not enough hours in the day (even with a 48 hour voting window). I have been guilty of this myself once or twice.
On this particular occcasion, 2old was totally candid in letting people know that he disliked all of the noms so much that he couldn't bring himself to vote for any of them. That may have been the case for other folk on other threads also. Fair enough.
However, I can't help feeling that certain folk are oh so anxious to share their tastes with the rest of us, impress upon us their self-professed in-depth musical knowledge and maybe nominate a few winners while they're at it, but have little or no interest in following the recommendations of others or generally partaking in the aspects of the game that don't centre on them and what they like. I should add that I do not think this to be the case for anyone that's been a regular contributor to the novelties game. Generally speaking, I think it would be a shame to let the lazy attitudes of a few self-centered sorts ruin everyone else's fun. However, this one has been very much 'your baby' and whatever decision you take will be fully understood I'm sure.

Vote as follows, 3-2-1:

Carry On Ray

Meh

Bollocks to it

I think that probably was the case with this particular round Neph. Doesn't explain the growing trend of there being far more nominators than voters though.

Lez Lee says:
I think people (like me) keep losing track of all the different thread closing times and either forget to vote or think they've voted.

Ach, I'm just getting a bit tired perhaps. After all the slashing and killing under last night's full moon...
