Track of the Year 2013
  • The sister thread to the Album of the year , nominate JUST 1 track , its not a list/showing off pretentious name dropping thread , as that`s basically been this years posts on "What are you listening to ?" thread . If you post more than one its basically a mix cd you`ve posted . 

    Track of the Year Club rules -

    1. Nominate your ONE favourite track of the year
    2. Yes , I know you might change your mind after you have a cup of coffee and have your morning dump , apparently theres a button called "Edit"
    3. No drama queening of "ooooh how can one only decide on one track , its a travesty of justice"  - its not Downton Fucking Abbey and you`re not the Queen
    4. Rather like the egg and spoon race when you were at school sports day and you lost to the ginger kid with glasses , there can be only one winner not two , rather like a shitter version of Highlander (if that were possible)  
    5. Devation from this and the thread will be renamed "Come Look At The Thick Twat(s) Who Can`t Read" thread 
    6. Sorry for the rules , if we didn`t have them we`d be like Russia and I`d cut your gas off and send your hamster to a gulag .

    But I AM the Queen - Mondays 2.30am - 2.55am, Thursdays around 11 (depending on what state Nigella is in), alternate Saturdays in leap years. Can I still be in the club?

    As long as you don`t pick "God Save The Queen Me" as your track

    That is actually a really good contender for track of the year as well!
    I hope the album will deliver. If it is as strong as this track is I am in.
    I didn't think the opening single (Nothern Lights incl. b-side) was that good.
    Reminds me of Niki & The Dove in a way.

  • Im quite liking that Kate Boy track (in the absence of the Knife pulling their finger out).

    Its hard to choose one track. this one is there for me when I feel shit. I feel extensively shit right now. Fuck you world.

    Mines NYPC Overtime. 
    Its not on youtube. Well at least I don't have to watch an advert.

    Have you seen them live?

    I thought they were awesome live.
    Knowing they only met about a year before the gig I saw, it kind of blew me away how good they were.
    Looking forward to seeing them again at Eurosonic!

  • Can I nominate something old please? It was written in 1909, but in my house, it's definitely been piece of the year.

    In this clip, I look uncannily like Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli

    Debussy Les sons....

    Nope. Unfortunately not. I only have three songs to judge them by. One of which is fantastic (your nomination for track of the year) and two of which were mediocre at best but are almost a year old.

  • 'Laurel' - Goldfrapp

    This was the song that had the biggest impact on me at the first of the Albert Hall gigs and it's not lost the power to move me or fire the imagination, since. I can't wait to see what Alison and Lisa have produced by way of a film for it.

    There's no need for me to add a link here, is there? :)
  • Annabel for me. I just love it. Live too- AMAZING. Makes me emotional. In a good way.
    JAMIE CARRAGHER= LEGEND
  • Has to be LONDON GRAMMAR - Wasting My Young Years for me. 


    However Kate Boy would be very close to that, indeed. 
    Be patient.

Howdy, Stranger!
