ROUND SEVEN

Bill Withers - Use Me
Testify my brother - TESTIFY!!
George Michael - Kissing a Fool A truly wonderful surprise. When jazzy lounge singing is a beautiful thing. I swear there are times when I catch a song like this from Michael and I feel so sorry for the sh#t rap he got.
Leslie Clio - Told You So Even with it being a bit repetitive, it's still a pretty cool song
Jeff Carson - Not On Your Love Soft, gentle, relaxing sad song.
Mahler - Symphony No. 5, Movement 4 sublime but did get beat out by the other songs
Nick Drake - Three Hours Nice song, but it didn't click for me. It happens.



Round 8
Jim Croce - Operator



And that rhymes with "P" and that stands for pool!

6) Bill Withers - Use Me



I just want to hug (your FACE)!
1. Nick Drake - Three Hours
Deserved so much more recognition for his music in his short life.

2. Bill Withers - Use Me
Well obviously. Just a great pop funk. Gives me an idea for a possible nom...

3. Leslie Clio - Told You So
Lovely voice and catchy hook. Agree that it repeats a bit much but such is the style. I imagine she doesn't open for Adele for fear of taking the audience away.

4. Mahler - Symphony No. 5, Movement 4
Not much to say but still glad to see this though it sits low on my list.

5. George Michael - Kissing a Fool
There are a few George Michael tracks I enjoy but this isn't one if them. Classic 80's blur of pop musical styles where nothing stands out for me.

6. Jeff Carson - Not On Your Love
Still not a fan of country. Sorry =*(



ROUND 7
  1. George Michael - Kissing a Fool
  2. Jeff Carson - Not On Your Love
  3. Mahler - Symphony No. 5, Movement 4
  4. Bill Withers - Use Me
  5. Nick Drake - Three Hours
  6. Leslie Clio - Told You So

You really should put this into your ziggnature message
