Nah. Takes a couple of minutes to update the list...our terrace overlooks the concert venue so able to dick about when I please late-on. The 'puter does not travel well in sand...;-)

I checked the list before putting up Roadrunner in current noms, but mistakenly looked for Richman under "R". Even checked M for Modern Lovers to be on the safe side, but clearly didn't go to The Far Side where "J" resides.

Damn! I thought I'd won that one with the old walking on the wild side. I even had my acceptance speech written. Wall street bl00dy shuffle my arse!

'Wall street bl00dy shuffle my arse!'- I'm sure that could be arranged, are we dealing with a small, medium, large or planetary arse?!

Johnny Bee says:
Yep. It seems voters prefer a catchy wee pop toon with "clever lyrics" and no discernible soul, to a classic rock song with lyrics about NY sleaze, sung by a living legend. Oh well, that's rock 'n roll, or rather, it isn't.

Brass Neck says:
Wall Street Shuffle may be catchy (crikey, since when was THAT a crime in music?) but it's a keenly observed critique of the power and greed of the banking system written 37 years ago and as pertinent today as it was then! That and some fantastically crunchy guitar playing from Eric Stewart. Twee it ain't (IMHO obviously).

Do the Wall Street shuffle
Hear the money rustle
Watch the greenbacks tumble
Feel the Sterling crumble

You need a yen to make a mark
If you wanna make money
You need the luck to make a buck
If you wanna be Getty, Rothschild
You've gotta be cool on Wall Street

You've gotta be cool on Wall Street
When your index is low
Dow Jones ain't got time for the bums
They wind up on skid row with holes in their pockets
They plead with you, buddy can you spare the dime
But you ain't got the time
Doin' the....
Doin' the....

Oh, Howard Hughes
Did your money make you better?
Are you waiting for the hour
When you can screw me?
'Cos you're big enough

To do the Wall Street Shuffle
Let your money hustle
Bet you'd sell your mother
You can buy another

Doin' the....
Doin' the....

You buy and sell
You wheel and deal
But you're living on instinct
You get a tip
You follow it
And you make a big killing

On Wall Street

Yeah, it's an ok tune, Brassy, just not MY tune.

As far as 10cc---How Dare You, was their piece de resistance. (IMO of course.)

Brass Neck says:
See HDY was a bit too smooth and pleased with itself for me (after two absolute classics - Sheet Music & Original Soundtrack). However there's an album which really, really needs a remaster - where's the top end?

FFS! How the hell did two very VERY average tunes finish so far ahead of the others?

Erm ... because that's how posters voted?!!

Erm...it was more a rhetorical question, Brassy.

Would a 'gentleman' cat insist on being called a thomas?
