Strike back against the sad bastard rock listing

johnboy 4 June 2007 47

The Canberra Times has gone out of its way to whore itself to the little loved 1053 2CA to run a particularly sad “Best Songs of All Time”.

The final countdown of songs will be published in The Canberra Times on Thursday June 7, and the songs will be counted down from Friday June 8 until Monday June 11.

If you are listening when selected songs are played, you could win tickets to “Elvis meets the Beatles”! The selected songs will be published only in The Canberra Times.

Amazingly for an advertorial tie in the CT has finally managed a hyperlink.

I hereby propose that everyone who thinks there is more to music than Elvis and The Beatles votes for “Bobby Lee’s Song, by the Ocean Moses” as their sole vote.

Yes there are many other songs you could vote for but this one is a) good and will b) upset the fogeys.

Fly my pretties, fly.

(if you need to hear the song before voting you can download it here pass on the word via all your blogs and emails!)

UPDATED: Canberra talk-back’s number one fan is outraged that a drunken blogger in Canberra for the weekend would dare to marr the sanctity of the elderly picking out their favourite song from the vinyl.

he only writes to them because he has no friends in real life.

if he in fact exists at all.

im convinced SGS is really just an elaborate practical joke pulled by communications/media students.

By the way JB, did you feel the wrath of Canberras self appointed guardian of AM talkback radio?

I wonder if Mr Laws has recieved an email recently telling how nasty you are.

You people have the whole FM band to yourself. Hopefully 2CA will ignore this crap and will compile a sensible list reflecting the truth. Shame on the people trying to skew the results with moronic smackhead crap.

just read sgs blog.

that kid cracks me up.

seriously – have you read any of his ‘song of the week’ stuff ?

i reckon his parents banned him from ever listening to music they didnt have in their lp collection.

he has probably never seen a compact disc.

and his three votes were all for air supply songs.

Ralph, you bastard, I’ve had that bloody Echo Beach refrain running through my head constantly since yesterday.

Can I get a Lazy Sunday afternoon(aaah) by small faces ?

So they are going to count the songs down over the long weekend, should be hoot listening to the golden oldies in AM mono.

For no good reason I feel like responding. 2CA is one of the few AM stations in the country still broadcasting in AM stereo…so you could go and buy an AM stereo receiver. It might be a bit hard to find one though.

Well that’s *at least* 2 votes for defaecate on my face Bonfire…

bonfire bonfire 5:04 pm 04 Jun 07

just voted.
tism – i might be a cant, but at least im not a forking cant.
tism – defecate on my face
sex pistols – bodies.

id urge everyone to vote these. im sure we can skew the results.
