I'm finding it hard to fathom how Nena is whupping Kate's ass. It's a good little pop song but c'mon...

I love Wuthering Heights, Kate's finest. I dont love Nenas luftballons, sad to say.

N-Trance for nostalgia reasons, and it's a corker.

If X-Ray Spex doesn’t make it past this round, this board hates punk.
I'm going to break my self-imposed rule of non-interference here, but if "Identity" wins, "Bondage" wouldn't be eligible for the non-album flexi track at the end. Not advocating, only pointing out an implication.
Scared of a Paranoid Pistols clutterfuck.
There won't be a clusterfuck, tho. If "Identity" wins, that's that for the Spex. I'm only suggesting that there is some strategizing/gambling in what to nominate/vote for, and that it might mean sacrificing "Bondage" down the road.
I do not trust this board to not vote some dumbass novelty song from 1972 that no one in America has ever heard instead.
Ah, so you're familiar with the essential character of the community. :lol:

If it’s any consolation I voted for neither. I respect the *idea* of Kate Bush, but honestly I don’t much care for the actual music. It’s fine. But not my thing.

Where did your other vote go?

I'm like that with Kate in general apart from WH.

I've accepted long ago that Kate's music isn't for everyone. Personally, I think she's brilliant, but I don't expect others to feel that way.
