"In Between Days" is a solid but mid-tier Cure song

Yeah, it's way down the list for me too.

This is going to be kind of boring if everyone defaults to voting for songs they're already familiar with.

I'll post YouTube videos in each voting thread but will also be creating a Spotify playlist for each round.

Spotify playlist for this round:

https://open.spotify.com/user/123180882 ... TXRiunWDrq

(Let me know if it doesn’t work, I've never done this before.)

I'll leave voting open for a week or so, then we have another round of this size to follow.

Thanks to Sarge for his administrative assistance!

That's fantastic. I will give this a go now. Not very familiar with their catalogue.

Distribution was totally random but so many more tough choices this round!

Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/123180882 ... mFfJI1cT7H

Scandalously, the studio cut of Killing An Arab isn't on Spotify, so I had to use the live version from Concert.

2-3 votes per round. Should have went with my Warrant suggestion.

This will come down to too many 'Sophie's Choice' moments for me. I hated doing this in the LZ and Grunge tourneys, and quite honestly... the debates about the songs going head to head were non-existent or laughable.

It's a bummer.

It's not like this has been some huge amount of work but there's still a bit of time invested in getting it together.

I don't know, may as well let it play out now, I guess.

I’m enjoying this Spenno. There’s a few early albums I hadn’t heard. Any chance this round could be left open till Monday night?

I limited the scope to album tracks and standalone singles for the period covering their first two singles compilations, Standing on a Beach and Galore.

I was going to include Burn to make up the numbers until it was pointed out that I’d forgotten to include Boys Don’t Cry (whoops).

Out of This World would be great if it didn’t have Roger’s piano all over it.

I thought about including Bloodflowers but it feels quite distinct from the 80s/90s material and it would seem arbitrary then to exclude the self-titled album and 4:13 Dream, which would have made the tournament even bigger and more intimidating for an RM audience (which didn’t go so well anyway).
