Maybe the elimination was the friends we made on the way?

I have to say, I thought Walk Me To The Bridge was the red hot favourite to win but it hasn't even made the final two!

I love it! I love all the songs from the last two pages. It's only a game etc. But I like to think their best wasn't from under ten years ago. So all hail Orwellian as the winner then!

Has to be International Blue doesn't it? I love Orwellian but internal blue is the better single.

Thanks for all who played. Be a long time before I make another game. It's very exhausting. Hopefully we're still friends. I'd have been happy if any of the final five had won.
I'd even put International Blue up against Motorcycle Emptiness.
And I didn't want to demean in any way the posts in threads that popped up while this game was played. I also thought because this forum had gotten quiet the game would drag on until their December dates with Suede.
Again thanks for all who played along. And erm... well as you were then.

Thanks for organising - don't worry, although some of my favourites got voted out early I still had fun!

Don't think I would have tipped International Blue to win it - maybe it got through as least unpopular rather than most popular, but an interesting result none the less.
