You should have voted out Where It's At. Good chance Hotwax would be in the final.

Where It's At. Don't care about which one wins though, both are great.

I wanted Hotwax to win so not massively fussed as they are two great songs. But Where It's At has that gorgeous keyboard playing.

The New Pollution.

Well, as I thought, the majority went with the predictable hit single. It's a great song, but a bit of a cliche and I prefer The New Pollution - though the winner for me remains Jack-Ass. Gorgeous song.

As it stands, Where It's At is the winner.

Some trivia about the song: Beck used samples from a 60s Sex Education record, called Sex for Teens (Where It's At!). He also gives a mention to 70s experimental musician Gary Wilson, who had a sort of revival thanks to this song.

Here it is, with its classic video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPfmNxKLDG4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; :)


Next up... One Foot In The Grave :)
