19. Toy Dolls - Nelle The Elephant v Jo Boxers - Boxer Beat

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I've never heard the vast majority of this stuff, so I can't really play.


The only 2 matches in which I've acually heard both tracks are:


04 - The Clash, Rock The Casbah v. The Pretenders, Brass In Pocket


27 - David Bowie, Ashes To Ashes v. Talking Heads, Psycho Killer


After that, I'm lost.

not all of them, so my votes probably shouldn't even count. I've heard the competitor songs for 7 and 27 but not the others so feel free to disregard my opinion lol...

Excellent idea, ArrGee! But I didn't know all of them either, so I only voted where I knew both songs in the pair.


"Here comes the vote from the Berlin jury!"


 


01. The Undertones - Teenage Kicks
02. The Jam - Town Called Malice


03. Blondie - Hanging On The Telephone v The Beat - Mirror In The Bathroom (Don't know The Beat)
04. The Pretenders - Brass In Pocket
05. Dexy's Midnight Runners - Geno v Adam & The Ants - Ant Music (Don't know either)
06. Martha & The Muffins - Echo Beach
07. Boomtown Rats - I Don't Like Mondays


10. XTC - Making Plans For Nigel


13. The Stranglers - No More Heroes
21. The Passenger - Iggy Pop
22. Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division

26. Rock Lobster - B 52s


27. David Bowie - Ashes To Ashes
30. The Psychedelic Furs - Pretty In Pink


(sorry, I never get the distance between the lines right )

So we can expect little participation from across the pond!  I reckon if you have heard at least one of the tracks you should vote pro or anti, just to get it through or knock it out.  Of course some snippets can be found here http://www1.hmv.co.uk/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=280;-1;-1;-1&sku=371721


Counting the votes in this round isn't going to be much fun!  I guess the only certainty is that the Boomtown Rats will get through (though I would be surprised if they are victorious, it's a tough competition!)

Will need to decide how to deal with a last 5, but in the meantime, my votes!

01. The Undertones - Teenage Kicks v The Buzz****s - Ever Fallen In Love


 Only I selected The Buzz****s!
