    Great song (the original, I mean), thanks for nominating. I love it but wouldn't have thought to nominate it in a million years as I didn't know it was covered.

    You Really Got Me was one of my nominations though, so very happy to see it do so well too.

    It was either i-ten Alone or Tina Turner Dont turn around (the best version of the song imo).

    Both recent enough discoverys for me and great obscure versions of popular songs which I hoped this game would be and was. Neither did very well but at least people heard them :)

    That Tina song is so much better than the cover :)

    Thanks for the fab tournament!
