Very nice, Chistine, and great job keeping your nomination a secret. I didn't vote for it every time but I do love that song, one of my favorites from The Beatles. It's a song that gives off a nostalgic feel to me, even if I don't necessarily relate to the lyrics. I'm very happy that you have won your first tournament, as you are always a classy and conscientious participant.

Congrats to SC, in the mix of things as usual, and always rustling up some fun. These tournaments wouldn't be the same without the life you bring to them. You always have a few nominations I love, and Our House was one of them.

Thanks to GB for running this and handling the ups and downs. There should be some downs in a personal tournament if it also contains honesty. You did a great job hanging in there and you should most definitely continue hosting and participating.

Thanks to everyone for sharing their good and bad stories; I think this forum is a means of therapy for many of us.

Oh great, I missed this. At least the right song won. Congrats to the winners and thanks to GBG for running the tourney. And Sexy is a major jackass sometimes but ya can't hate him.

Thanks Cricket

I hope GBG isn't put off running more tournaments. I've always found her to be straightup and fair. I think she did a sterling job here despite the upset in the middle.

I think you're probably right about the forum being therapy Cricket. I found the stories behind peoples choices both funny and heartfelt. Some even brought a tear to me eye. You guys are great, and I'm glad you're all here xxx



Congrats on winning a tournament, Christine. Shame it was a Beatles song, but I'm thought it was yours and it's so personal to you that I'm actually pleased it won, despite not voting for it.

Congrats on bagging the runners up spot, SC. I know you like to win these, but it was against The Beatles, so it's a bit of a moral victory.

Mostly though, thanks to gbg for running and coming back to this. I think, for the most part, we all enjoyed it and I hope you take another on at some point.

I explained all my noms but here's my list:

The Scaffold - Liverpool Lou

The Beatles - Penny Lane[

Gimme a pig foot and a bottle of beer

Johnny Cash - Rose of my heart

Merle Haggard - Working mans blues

Z Cars theme

Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan's dream

merle Haggard - Wine Take Me Away



A big congratulations to Christine for her first tournament win! I've always loved Penny Lane. Glad to see it win!

A big thank you to GBG! and a bigger thank you for hanging in there! Sorry things got a bit dicey...and I would like to take this opportunity to say to Chyp, let's just chalk this up as a misunderstanding and be friends

Like Cricket said, I do see MoFo as therapy, it's my social outlet as I don't have any friends in the real world, except my lovely wife and our two cats. So like a big family we'll have tiffs but should always stick together.

Congratulations to both christine and Sexy Celebrity!!! Honestly, christine, as soon as I saw "Penny Lane" was nominated, I thought it was so obvious whose it was.

Everything Old Is New Again - Peter Allen
K-K-K-Katy - Billy Murray
My Cousin In Milwaukee - Lyda Roberti
Paint It Black - The Rolling Stone
Battle Cry of Freedom
I've Gotta Be Me - Sammy Davis, Jr.

Rock With You - Michael Jackson

Warmest congratulations to Christine on winning - absolutely delighted for you. And well done to Sexy with the runner-up, I thought that one would win it tbh.

A massive thank you to Gbg for running the show - no matter what transpired it was a good idea and none of what happened was your fault at all.

As to what happened between myself and CR - I have no problem sealing that off in the past, as I stated before I'm not here to get involved in fights and any umbrage taken to anything I wrote was certainly not intended.

My eight were:
The Yardbirds - You're A Better Man Than I
Imogen Heap ft. Jeff Beck - Blanket
Hyperplush - Truly Blonde
Henri Mancini - Theme from The Pink Panther
Bobby Bland - Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City
Julian Moon - A Cup Of Coffee
Deutsch-Österreichisches Feingefühl - Codo
Buck Shot - Two Sheets
