Very good list. Only 3 out of 16 that I dislike. Can we adopt the 48 hour voting cycle, as per the other games?

RAB says:
See how it looks tomorrow evening Liq. If it picks up some more then why not?

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Nov 2012 21:27:19 GMT
Cheers RAB. I was thinking mainly of tracks 2-10, assuming the 10 track format is still the plan.

RAB says:
Yeah, still planning on the 10 tracks, hopefully the slow going is because of the slightly disorganised start as there's been some great songs released this year.

16 nominations is pretty good going RAB. Hopefully that will at least remain consistent. This round alone has already gone some way to changing my view of the 2012 year in music which I had considered something of a disappointment, certainly compared to the previous three.

RAB says:
Can I ask a question? Why is Rufus Wainright listed as the artist when it's the delightful Helena Bonham Carter singing? Isn't that the title track on the album too?

Posted on 5 Nov 2012 13:11:42 GMT
Lez Lee says:
If Helena sounded like that she'd have a lot to worry about! ;-)
Yes it is the title track but why does that matter?

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Nov 2012 13:14:06 GMT
Val H. says:
That's Rufus singing (plus he plays all three characters in the singing trio). Helena is merely miming to Rufus.

Posted on 5 Nov 2012 13:14:26 GMT
RAB says:
Wait so it's not Helena singing? I'm confused now.

Lez Lee says:
Why do I feel you're not serious RAB? ;-)

Posted on 5 Nov 2012 13:27:31 GMT
RAB says:
I'm being deadly serious. Given my only knowledge of the song is the music video and I'd never heard either Rufus or Helena sing before I obviously got the wrong idea.

Plus this sort of thing has happened before. One Republic's "Apologise" has had Timbaland's name attached to it as well as Amy Winehouse's version of Valeria being released as a Mark Ronson song.

Doesn't matter. I enjoyed it either way.
