I really disliked most of these. So much so that my 3rd place went to a track I was unable to listen to on my phones youtube app.

And so we reach the end. Time to deal with those final tricky letters.

Nominations open for "Q", "X" or "Z" (any of the 3 are valid).

Always gotta close with a slow depressing acoustic track right?

Not sure if many people have seen the film "Repo! The Genetic Opera", so I'll risk a track from that. Here's Terrance Zdunich singing as Graverobber - with a few other vocallists too, including Paris Hilton...



(Heh, gets a Z for artist AND track.)

Instead of going up and down and round and round trying to decide whether 12 minutes of prog metal is an acceptable entry I'm just going to post this cover of a classic that debatably makes it worse although I have no taste or respect for music history so I prefer this version and also I brought this song up in another thread so even if you hadn't heard it before that you stand a chance of having listened to since anyway so I'm not going to win and at the end of the day I'm only in this for the sweet sweet points.



(There is a z in the song name, so there Jezoc)

I'll tell you in a week ;) In reality I still prefer the song I posted. Like I said. No taste.

I may well have been keen on the prog-metal track too - we'll see in a week then. And it looks like Zs all round at the moment.

This is yet another band local to me, and another who my band have shared a stage with. I really like them because there are very few bands around playing this sort of 'Surf Rock' style anymore. Their whole set basically felt like a Tarantino soundtrack.

Although they do have music recorded, there's no official recordings up on Youtube for this band so I've had to just use one of their live performances, assuming that's acceptable.

Yeah I would've been up for the prog metal track too.

I'm going to struggle on this round. Thinking back to the first game, my entries for Q, X & Z were all random pop songs that I vaguely liked, as I don't have anything in my library for any of those letters.

I'll think on it.
