For those of you not familiar with the great music oracle concept, it's a devastatingly easy idea.
One puts one's iTunes (or whatever music player you kwazee kidz use in 2012 now we've discovered electricity and Spikey can enter into a civil partnership with the partner of his choice) onto shuffle and asks it some questions. The skill is in deciphering the oracle's somewhat cryptic responses.
England are looking surprisngly unturd, Music Oracle, are they actually a chance at winning it?
Hometown Farewell Kiss - The Triffids
-Hmm. We can kiss local hopes goodbye, then. I'll take that as a resounding "no".
Ok then, who will win?
Sleep On The Left Side - Cornershop
-Sounds like a sound night's sleep for a left leaning country. France has just elected a Socialist president, so it could be good news for Johnny Frog.
The Netherlands' defence was a bit pony, wasn't it? What went wrong?
Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) - Cornershop
-Sounds like they've been watching the Norse too much and not seeing the wood for the trees.
Who's going to be the top scorer?
Someday - The Strokes
-I suppose it was inevitable Ronaldo would do it someday, yes.
What's the deal with Gomez tho? How can someone look so gash and score so many goals?
Suedehead - Morrissey
-It's all about his short hair, apparently.
Was Woy the right choice for England's manager?
Graffiti - Maximo Park
-The writing's on the wall? Maybe not then.
Was he right to take Rooney despite the suspension?
Did She Overtake You - Robert Forster
-The "she" can only refer to the French national emblem Marianne, and she didn't, so yes, yes he was.
Are the linos behind the goal-line worse than useless?
Live Forever - Oasis
-Half-arsed compromises come and go, but the beautiful game is eternal and doesn't need them.
Whose commentary is worse: BBC or ITV?
She Bangs The Drums - The Stone Roses
-Aunty Beeb's team has rather beaten a jingoistic drum this year, yes, so the BBC.
Are sponsored pants really worse than racism?
Wonderwall - Oasis
-"Wonderwall" is meaningless, as are UEFA's fines.
What can be done about the racist chanting then?
Barrel Of A Gun - Depeche Mode
-Ha, 'nuff said.
England to exit on pens tho?
Little Wonder - David Bowie
-Yeah, wouldn't be much of a wonder if they did.
Feel free to ask your oracle these questions or add your own.
