Continuing to vote off Clampdown. Kamala Harris is a cop.

Early goings, and the vote is reflecting my own behavior, but RCF's traction here is, frankly, stunning. I had no idea the tune was so well regarded.

For me - there is just something about it. It's not a big message song. Musically - it's so loose and fun. Joe's "Sing, Michael, Sing" ad lib...the fact that it's a duet between Joe & Mick...Paul & Topper's spot on reggae rhythm. It's hard to find anything wrong with it, but easy to find a lot of really great things about it.

Very pro bagged milk. Used to have it in Saskatchewan, but it went away in favour of the big plastic jugs. Common in Onterrible, tho. Easy to store, less waste when you're done.

Yep. I think it is harder to vote when you have 2 very different songs as opposed to 2 from similar mould.

If Clampdown had a better final minute, it'd be a harder decision. A flawless/exceptional 2/3rds of a song.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
