    Battle of the Songs which weren't deemed good enough to be in the battle of the songs

    Now, perhaps it's my fault for not nominating anything, but I think the Battle of the Songs is more of a battle of your favourite Beatles/Stones/60s or 70s rock song, without any blues, jazz, soul, reggae or anything pre-Beatles and very little punk or metal represented.

    Songs such as
    Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World
    Louis Armstrong - We Have All The Time In The World
    Frank Sinatra - My Way
    The Smiths - This Charming Man
    The Smiths - There's A Light That Never Goes Out
    Bob Marley - Redemption Song
    The Sex Pistols - Anarchy In The UK
    The Damned - New Rose
    Marvin Gaye - Heard It Through The Grapevine
    Aretha Franklin - Respect
    The Ronettes - Be My Baby
    Dean Martin - Everybody Loves Somebody
    Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
    Black Sabbath - Paranoid
    Slayer - Raining Blood
    The Verve - The Drugs Don't Work
    The Velvet Underground - Sweet Jane
    Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
    have been left out and I think they deserve recognition in a battle themselves. So there. Nominations?

    I could nominate dozens, but there's no point if they're too obscure as they'll inevitably get a kicking due to their selective (© Spinal Tap) appeal. With that in mind I'll go:

    Suedehead - Morrissey
    Fool's Gold - The Stone Roses
    Going Underground - The Jam
    Our House - Madness
    Ghost Town - The Specials
    True Faith - New Order
    Inbetween Days - The Cure
    Lust for Life - Iggy Pop
    Step On - The Happy Mondays
    Hurt - Johnny Cash
    Oliver's Army - Elvis Costello
    Ever Fallen in Love? - Buzzcocks
    Golden Brown - The Stranglers
    Here Comes Your Man - Pixies
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Buzzcocks to win.

    I'd nominate but it'd only be obscure indie stuff that would go out anyway.

    Muse - Knights of Cydonia
    The Killers - Mr Brightside
    Guns N' Roses - Welcome To The Jungle
    The Cure - Friday I'm In Love
    Oasis - Live Forever
    The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony


    And Sean, it's not your fault - plenty of people nominated things and simply had their ideas rejected.

    Here's a few songs I would have liked to see in the original. Trying to keep a bit of variety while I'm at it, but I'll probably fail:

    David Bowie - Suffragette City
    Dinosaur Jr - Freak Scene
    Faith No More - Easy
    Foo Fighters - Learn to Fly
    Fun Lovin' Criminals - Scooby Snacks
    Jimi Hendrix - Little Wing
    Metallica - Fade to Black
    Metallica - Enter Sandman
    New Order - Blue Monday
    Nirvana - Lake of Fire
    Black Sabbath - Paranoid
    Pearl Jam - Black
    The Pixies - Where is my Mind?
    The Pixies - Monkey Gone to Heaven
    Radiohead - Karma Police
    RHCP - Under the Bridge
    Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
    Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight
    Sonic Youth - Kool Thing
    Soundgarden - Pretty Noose
    Stone Temple Pilots - Interstate Love Song


    Some of them I suppose are mildly obscure, though anyone with musical taste should know them . A couple of them are covers (Easy and Lake of Fire of the top of my head), but those versions are probably more well known than the originals.

    In all fairness your taste in music doesn't really bare close scrutiny.
