Well, after Round 2, we were at 9-9-2-2 and we're currently at 11-11. So, assuming that accounts for all the Round 2 voters, unless we have a new voter show up, ready your arguments for me.

kate bush is a figure of david bowie-esque artistic merit and I can only recommend my friend Christine's writing about the song to argue for it: https://katebushsongs.wordpress.com/201 ... g-heights/

Think about it, Kate Bush was 18 motherfucking years old when she wrote and recorded this song. It has an incredibly sophisticated chord sequence, melody, time signature etc. It's just an absolute behemoth of a song, like a classical piece or something. Yes, her voice is an acquired taste but I think it sounds rather ethereal here. And any bass players reading, listen to that fucking bass.

Personally, I think WH has done well to take it this far with 99 Luftballoons as it didn't have the advantage of hit status in America like the Nena song.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Wait a second—SM claimed her has his friend. Which is it? Everyone knows women can only have, at most, one male friend unless she's a hooker.

Do we know that Kate prunes her arm bush? This *might* be important.

I also have a vote I have yet to cast.

Anyone want to try and convince me one way or the other?
