Toughest yet. Other than SAE they are all about even. Think I'm gonna have to go for CDS.

There's really no wrong answer
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Up In Heaven seems the least important. Voting for that. Let's Go Crazy is too good to go out now.
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.

It annoys me a bit that Let's Go Crazy won its side - a great song, but not the greatest from its heat - so I'm fine voting it out now.

I feel the same way. I like the song. I think it's a good song. I just don't think it's a great song.

Oh fuck this shit. LGC has some of the best lyrics in the canon.

Agreed, I'd like see it go further. As you've said before, it's one of the few songs on S! that isn't a loose pastiche. They formed some new hybrid. You have to give credit for that.

That ascending guitar line halfway through is genius.

Will whoever's voting for SAE kindly refrain and go back to watching Beachcombers or something?

Up in Heaven for me, though at this stage they're all greats. For me personally though SAE, WB and CDS are the giants.

You can add SGM to that trio.

Ha! We've doubled our vote total since Round 1. Your tears will almost make up for the other results.

I haven’t been looking at the total # of votes. 20 cast so far is that above average then?
