Once again, a snippet track that is never going to win is included, wasting our time.

Poor bears.

And I have a feeling Pulk/Pull won't last long even though that track is amazing!

...which is what?? Do you realize that what you consider a waste of time could be of value to somebody else? I honestly don't know what song you are referring to... Pulk/Pull? I know somebody in this forum that loves Pulk/Pull to death. If you're so disappointed with this game, why don't you start your own? I don't hear anybody else complaining! lol

Oh great! Hunting Bears is gonna go first?

Hunting Bears >>>>> Dollars And Cents

Who voted for "Pyramid Song"?!!!
"Pyramid Song" simply is the best song Radiohead ever composed and is one of the finest tunes of the present decade.

Everyone else is happy to follow the herd and not complain.

Pulk/Pull is over 4 minutes long. It may not fit the conventional description of a song, but it's a full track. Hunting Bears is 2 minutes, and feels shorter. It's a segue. It's not going to last past the first round, and everyone knows it.

So why bother? Because we're anal completists. Let's get real.

You're right on the money--I don't think lethal injection for the perpetrator would be cruel or ununsual punishment here.

Hunting Bears at least has some interesting jazzy instrumentation going. It's beautiful to my ears! Dollars and Cents is just boring.

Hunting Bear and Dollars and Cents need to go first.

Why Morning Bell has 2 votes, I will never know.

The thing is, you're picking an arbritary length of time at which a song becomes 'a full song'.

There are plenty of, say, Beatles songs that are only 2-2.5 minutes long and are as full as any song ever was.

I LOVE Dollars and Cents!! I assumed everyone else did, too. This game has been so revealing.

I'd want either Pyramid Song/I Might Be Wrong/You and Whose Army? or Life in a Glasshouse to go to the finals.

I doubt I Might Be Wrong and Life in a Glasshouse will though, even if they pwn the entire album.

No, it's the combination of the length of time and the failure of the track to manifest itself into anything very substantial.

There was no way Fitter, Happier was going to go past 1 or 2 rounds either, and it was eliminated in a fucking landslide. Treefingers suffered the same fate.

I believe that proves my point?
