PJOPS 29: DECADE DECIDER - COMPLETED.

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by 2014, Nov 20, 2016.

  1. I gave myself a challenge with the 60s...80s would have been too easy/obvious for me. It came down to either Tim Buckley or David Ackles. After playing them off against each other, I felt Ackles was too "heavy" for the OPS. Although I admit Pleasant Street isn't a bundle of laughs, but musically and vocally it has a lighter touch.

  6. Wow, I actually got 60 points! You know what, I will take it. Cheers for everyone who voted for The Saints! They were more than "I'm Stranded", for certain.

    Thank you so much for all taking part and bearing with me for this round I'm knackered now so I'll sort everything else out in the morning.

    Congrats @Derek and thanks again for your contributions guys, I enjoyed it and hope you all did too!
     
  8. Wow Ackles would have come last but you'd have got my vote. My fave song by him is Down River... definitely HEAVY.

  11. Congratulations to @Derek, a great winner. Pleased that Lone Justice got 2nd, I don't mind coming behind Maria McKee....in that clip, she is the vision of the kind of woman I thought I'd marry when I was older.

    Never imagined Tim Buckley would get me a 3rd place! Thanks for all the points, and hopefully you'll explore some more of his work!
     
  12. Sleepily reading @Zar-Unity 's scores (thanks rather a lot, also loved the Moose track) upside down and celebrating a point... or as it really was, 10! Fourth place!! Shocked.

    Kudos @2014 on a fun rundown, and huge congrats to our well deserved winner @Derek

  13. Ha, cheers Zarj...yes, I felt it would be OPS suicide to go with him. But a great talent.

  14. Most chuffed Kim won. My fave soul singer of all time.

    If you liked her motown stuff it gts even better later on, if you can find this album.... beg steal or borrow...

  15. I did a Motown mega-anthology project a few years back, trying to source every UK Motown A-side in chronological order...I'd have to say Kim was my favourite female singer of all the ones on the label.

  17. Awwww, you guys, it's my first PJOPS top five! (Barely, but still!) Looks like my 60s treasure hunt paid off! Thanks @Zar-Unity for my last few points, and thank you all!

    Flawless hosting, @2014! Loved the theme, and the reveal was incredibly well-executed!

    And congrats @Derek once again... 'Helpless' has to be one of my fave PJOPS winners to date!
     
  18. Well done @Derek, thanks to all the kind voters, and commiserations to Eric for the very tight battle for 2nd & 3rd places.

    Secretly happy Kenickie had a last-minute rally after a shockingly poor start. And @Sprockrooster I gave you a couple of points!
     
  19. Oh wow thanks @Zar-Unity! Yay for top 10. Congrats @Derek, a well deserved win. Also cheers to @2014 for hosting.

  20. I actually got a hold of the first of those Complete Motowns Singles anthologies, the one covering 1959-1962. Maybe don't try that project, because trust me, you don't want to hear some of that stuff... though by the time Motown had distribution in the UK, maybe it had some actual quality control?
