    Nina - 99 Luftbalons Vs The Pogues - Fairytale of New York - have to because it's my nomination!

    The Who - Teenage Wasteland Vs Cardi B - Bodak Yellow - Pass as I don't think the first is over-rated and I don't really know the second. Incidentally, the title of the first song is actually Baba Reilly, even though Teenage Wasteland is said a few times

    Edit: Actually it's name is Baba O'Riley!

    David Gray - Babylon Vs Radiohead - Creep

    Christina Perri - Jar Of Hearts Vs The Beatles - Hey Jude - I don't really know the first but the second is somewhat over-rated, even though it's good!

    Firstly I'm sorry I missed this whole thread til now! Adjusting to life after pac is hard 😣

    Disturbed - Sound Of Silence

    Abstain - I like both these (though Thrift Shop would be a good shout for a song I initially disliked) and I think of their time they offered something good or different

    Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli - Time to Say Goodbye - I think Use Somebody is such a great song, this I absolutely love also, but did it get too much hype for being different... maybe?

    Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall - Carly Rae still makes it into my playlist, every time I hear this I'm happy even after the possible overplay so to me personally it's not over rated. I do believe the level of commercial success of this actually has caused her difficulty in her career since, she can't get away from the comparison despite having made some great music since. Pink Floyd of a time is something special but for me it's a bit, oh yeah, this song, what else is on...

    I'm pretty sure this is a new record for lateness ^^^ 🤣

    I thought I'd clicked for last page but it seems I only managed page 2... I give up 😅



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,835 ✭✭✭ari101


    Phil Collins - Against All Odds

    Don McClean - American Pie

    Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams

    John Lennon - Imagine (I really want to vote for both here and neither in the previous match but I'm making a choice 😁)



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,362 ✭✭✭✭Kolido


    We're still waiting for Liz....

    A lot of regulars havent joined in this one which is a shame, there was a lot of PMs so I thought there would have been a lot playing. But that was back in the old days. I'm just wondering if folk havent found the thread or maybe couldnt be bothered with new site (wouldnt blame them for that). We'll keep going anyways. :)

    I think there is a three fold issue - the weather; some people are outside / on hols and making the most of it, people haven't worked it out/found stuff yet (I missed this thread because there were multiple games added to the announcement thread and I overlooked yours, and I'd usually pick it up on the my forums page, but that doesn't list the latest threads first (or at all in seemingly - it's a one page random selection), and I suppose there will probably be a few who don't stick round through the teething phase 😟



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,043 ✭✭✭Declan A Walsh


    Liz has been on Boards since the change. I think she might be on a holiday break - she said something to that effect!
