MFSD Track 19 - Voting

You all know the drill, usual rules apply - don't vote for your own nomination and please check back to ensure you haven't clashed (as unlikely as that seems). Settling now at just the 11 nominations (and thanks to those who have imbibed) and once again it's (just) 4-3-2-1. Please append your votes to the songs below and do so by Saturday evening (31st May 2014) at 10.00 pm. No late votes will be counted. A little extra time on this one as I'm of along the Algarve for a few days for some wine and music, back late Sunday so perhaps deputy Liq could do the honours and close this thang? Cheers!

Continued thanks to Phil for his now legendary playlist...

Voting well and truly over, I'll check the scores before calling the result - being as deputy Liq didn't feel inclined to close this dang thang and has left me with a countback. You can't get the staff nowadays.

In reply to an earlier post on 1 Jun 2014 22:55:37 BDT
can i get a countback for my nom, al? :)

lol tech, I was going to post that I hadn't heard that gem for a long while and have located it in the vault and played it a couple of times when away over the weekend. Good to hear it again and sorry it got a zilch but perhaps at the farther extent of the range for this thread? Certainly added to the diversity of the playlist though...! ;-)

In reply to an earlier post on 1 Jun 2014 23:19:02 BDT
he he, i thought steinski was the cat's baws at the time - shelled out a few bob for an import 12" featuring 'the lesson' 1 - 3. great stuff.

In reply to an earlier post on 2 Jun 2014 00:30:13 BDT
A bit too digitalised,new wave for these old ears,sorry tech,artistically and intellectually I can appreciate there endeavors but it just didn't make me boogie on down to the dance floor and move it!! :-)

In reply to an earlier post on 2 Jun 2014 07:41:48 BDT
nae sweat, martin, just one of the belters i picked up from my hip-hop/rap phase, incuding ll cool j's first 2 albums, which i still defend as classics of the genre. (despite all the mince he's released since).
but, i knew the nom was pushing it a bit. :)

Sorry Al. I cannot tell a lie, I was moonlighting as a zon boxing scribe again on Saturday.
Please don't fire me. I have a serious drinking habit to support.

Well done Johnny. Great song.

In reply to an earlier post on 2 Jun 2014 13:20:04 BDT
I wasn't sure about Carmel either tech,borderline jazz but such a funky baseline.

In reply to an earlier post on 2 Jun 2014 13:38:42 BDT

You're bringing some good stuff to the table JB. In fairness that's a comment that could be levelled at all the nominators as these rounds progress.
