I wouldn't say LWTSH is comparable to Spanish Eyes though, except in the sense they're both quality b-sides.

My rankings:
1. Alex Descends
=2. WDIAGW
=2. LWTSH

And I don't want LWTSH to win because that's just boring and predictable.

I wouldn't mind seeing that one win.

As long as Alex Descends lasts a while, I'm down with the round.
What's your objection to WDIAGW? There's some cool guitar stuff, it's really catchy, and the "so you walk on by" ending is great.

Personally, I think WDIAGW suffers from hideous production.

It's supposed to be a high of 13 Saturday here. So we'll have dropped a fair bit, still pretty mild though.

It was so nice to walk around in short sleeves

I swear to non-existent God, this Sigur Ros song sounds like baby's music, or at least the first 1:30 do.
Which Sigur Ros song are you listening to?

Ugh, Killers. This song is just there, but I keep waiting for this guy to spit out another horrible lyric like "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier".

Well done, dipshit. You've poisoned all of your music. Bono could record a whole album where 'kneel' or 'soul' is in every lyric and it still wouldn't poison things as much as that worst lyric in recorded history.

Nightwish reminds me of the celtic stuff my brother listens to.

The one in Irishteen/Lemonchick's playlist, Saeglópur. All in all, although it picked up and had decent atmosphere, it felt too much like "hey let's make music for babies!"

I cannot stand Tarja Turunuren or whatever her name is, and this whole plague of "gothic" metal with operatic female vocalists.

It's not even comparable to the epic production phail of So Cruel or the end of UTEOTW.
