Time to bring a classic game show to the threads.

Whoever gets in first in the morning chooses that days track/video
everybody chips in with their critique and we decide if it's a HIT or MISS.

This is our own alternative chart. I want you guys to critique the tunes and tell us if it is a HIT or MISS with yourself NOT whether it would take on Shamen sCowell and the rubbish that makes up 99% of the pop charts.

Todays clip:

Everybody Wants To Be My Friend by SixNationState.

They are my local band, full of energy, definitely one for a good night out with loads of booze and Gerry has a great voice and deserves a wider audience and record deal.

For me it's a definite:

over to you....

I think if you read the OP the rules are clear, Brasso.

Just off to have a listen.

OK - a hit with me, MC. A little bit punk, a little bit Eastern European folk, plus all the stuff that LOM identified. I love the melodica, and the sheer joie de vivre.

As far as I remember, the Juke Box Jury was supposed to say whether it would actually sell enough copies to send it into the Top Twenty. I've no idea if such a thing still exists any more, so I can't give you an opininion on that.

My goodness. It must be nearly forty years since I saw a melodica.

I like this record, and it was nice to see some outdoor shots of St Mary's in Southampton, near where I used to live. Good song to listen to, dance to, sing along with, etc. I don't really like the singer's voice but it's preferable to the fake American r&b standard.

I'm not sure how the voting's supposed to work. Of course it won't be a hit because it's not bland enough, but it's a good record. Does that mean my vote should be hit or miss?

Not really my kind of thing, but I do like the Eastern European folk influences and the singer has a good voice. Can't imagine me ever buying or listening to it at home, but I can see that they would be a great band to watch live.

So, I suppose that if we are talking about a hit or a miss as far as the charts go, it would be a miss. Which is a real pity because the charts could do with something a bit different and I think if people were exposed to it, it would catch on. But of course they never will be.

Not really my cup of coffee MC, and to be honest I can't see them storming up the charts either so from me it's a

MISS :-(

Miss from me too, might work as for a party background though...

An ok slice of sing-a-long Indie Rock off an album released back in 2007. Listened to a couple of other tracks and they sound like a cross between Fratellis and Kooks.

I quite liked it, I really like the singer's voice. I also listened to a couple of other tacks by them.

It was Tony Hatch wasn't it?

Actually, Derek Hobson was the presenter of New Faeces. Tony Hatch was one of the judges. It was revived in the late eighties with Marti Caine presenting and Nina Myskow taking on the job of telling the rubbish acts that they were rubbish.

Hughie Green presented Opportunity Knocks.

It's a HIT. Great song. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for the tip.

A HIT from me. My first thought was The Police, but maybe not. A bit retro-sounding but still lots of fun, gets the hips swivelling and nice sing-a-long type chorus. Definitely better than most of the stuff I hear on Top 40 stations.
