Strike back against the sad bastard rock listing

By johnboy - 3 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.

What’s Your opinion?

The Beatles will always be up there in the greatest songs of all time, simply because they wrote and recorded a lot of the greatest songs of all time.

I’d like to see the Beau Brummells ‘Laugh Laugh’ on the list.

I do wish you’d consult me before using my stuff for a stack, but.. what the hell, may as well vote for meseln.

Meconium: as always right cluck and save to disk if streaming isn’t working for you.

Scumdorg: the tedious mediocrity of boomer conformity will, it is true, afflict humanity for generations to come.

But here and now we can make a stand.

Having trouble accessing Bobby Lee’s Song off your site Johnboy.

Bugger it, I’m voting for it anyway. If it makes it in there that would be a laff.

Elvis and The Beatles will still be loved and remembered long after Ocean Moses and the other fly by night pretenders have gone to the great iPod in the sky.

sepi: Have you seen media watch?
Putting an ad for an escort next to a death notice is minor compared to the normal “relevant” ads displayed over at Fairfax Online.

Take a look at this story from the ABC’s Media Watch (Episode 9 – 2007)

21st Century Schizoid Man would get my vote.

Canberra Times sank to anew low today in another way.

They managed to put one of their ‘call sherry for massage XXX’ ads actually under the ‘In Memory’ heading.

I dunno who will be more upset – Sherry, or various bereaved families.

Don’t mess with my stack man,

I can’t think of a better way to spend the long weekend. Until I saw this ad, I was in despair, running out of of long weekend ideas.

I am going to vote for “What am I gonna do” by Emile Ford.
