1. Horse Party - Animal

3. The Clash - Rock The Casbah
4. Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman
5. Pretty Reckless - Make Me Want To Die
6. Dan Seals - Addicted
7. Dionne Warwick - Don't Make Me Over
8. The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - Call Me

Round 5 nom:
Johnnie Ray - Bury Me Out On The Lone Prairie



The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - Call Me - Blondie's version is one of my favourite songs and I only recently found this version. Thought it was a great cover. If you like the style but not the cover, try a few of their others. I'd recommend Down On Your Knees or Motorhead Girl. Nice version of Chick Habit too.

Horse Party - Animal - I like this. It's my kind of thing.

Texas Hippie Coalition - Moonshine - I liked this, but a little too heavy on the country feel by the end for me.

Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman - So mellow and familliar. No problems here.

Pretty Reckless - Make Me Want To Die - Pretty sure this has been nominated. That's good though, cos I like it.

The Clash - Rock The Casbah - I like this song, but I don't like The Clash anything like as much as so many others.

Dionne Warwick - Don't Make Me Over - Honestly, I don't know if I could name a Dionne Warwick song that wasn't a cover. Had it not been for Whitney, I don't know if I'd have known who she was at all. It's ok, though to me, it sounds pretty much like every other song which sounds like that from back then.

Dan Seals - Addicted - What is it with all the country? Still, not too bad but fairly plodding and down.

Round 4
  1. Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman
  2. Horse Party - Animal
  3. Dan Seals - Addicted
  4. Dionne Warwick - Don't Make Me Over
  5. The Clash - Rock The Casbah
  6. Pretty Reckless - Make Me Want To Die
  7. Texas Hippie Coalition - Moonshine
    Redhead
  8. The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - Call Me
    Prefer the original so much moreBlondie



Round 4

1. Texas Hippie Coalition - Moonshine
(More southern metal than southern rock. A party song for redneck headbangers.)

2. The Pretty Reckless - Make Me Want to Die
(I've yet to hear a song from The Pretty Reckless that I loved, but I've liked most of what I've heard from them, and I like this more than the average. I'll always have a soft spot for female-led rock.)

3. Horse Party - Animal
(I dig the fuzzy, garage-band sound, and I'm sure I'd enjoy it even more if I wasn't a bit hungover at the moment.)

4. The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - Call Me
(A fun twist on Blondie's original. I've nominated this group before and likely will again.)

5. Dionne Warwick - Don't Make Me Over

(Agree with honeykid that the song sounds a bit same-y compared to other such songs from the era, but it still boasts a magnificent vocal.)

6. Dan Seals - Addicted
(Not exactly my brand of country, but I just love that the genre has been heavily represented so far in this tournament.)

7. The Clash - Rock the Casbah
(An overplayed classic.)

8. Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman
(Never been big on Glen Campbell.)

Round 5 Nom:

Round 5 nomination:

The Cramps - What's Inside a Girl?


Since participation seems to be lagging a bit, I'm recruiting my pals @cricket, @Nostromo87 and @cat_sidhe. Maybe one or all can join. If so, the rules are in the first post. This tournament's not time-consuming at all (always 48 hours to vote), and you can drop in and out as you please. I know cricket has stopped joining tournaments because he said he's run out of songs to nominate, but surely he can think of one song at a time, even if it's one of the many he's nominated in the past.



The Clash - Rock The Casbah
Texas Hippie Coalition - Moonshine (Banger song)
Pretty Reckless - Make Me Want To Die
Horse Party - Animal
The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - Call Me
Dan Seals - Addicted
Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman
Dionne Warwick - Don't Make Me Over
