I'll be honest. None of the songs I liked in April are on this list... (I don't want to hurt any feelings of those who made it but I'm just saying it from my own personal musical taste). For me, Murder in Paradise, Take this City and Avalanche would have all made the list. Of the ones that did, only one really made enough of an influence on me to actually remember anything of it.

Again, sorry. Personal view.

I have voterized.  ;D  It was agonizing, as the choices all seemed pretty equal to me.

That's what the monthly comp is all about Sterix. Whoever hosts the competition picks their fav tracks and everyone else gets to vote.

It doesn't mean the choice of the host is definitive,or the best songs,just  personal preference.

You should host next month's comp,then you get to pick.  ;)

@Skub and @Paulski : I'm too new on this forum to make THAT many enemies that quickly!   ;D

But I'm happy to do it if you're struggling to find sacrifices volunteers. If yes, my bank account details are... :P

@Sterix

Ha,you walked into that one my brother!  :D

Seriously though,it'd be great to get new blood hosting the show. I've always found the bribes to be a good earner. @Paulski and @pompeyjazz are loaded and pay very well,that's why they win loads.  :)

The SOTM is fun, but it isn't why I'm here. I'm here for the crits (when I get around to posting songs), the more brutal (but not nasty), the better. ;D The SOTM is just an extra perk. I often don't agree with the winners, but I can always understand why others vote for them. A lot of the outcome is just personal taste, as was mentioned.

I know it’s a lovely sunny bank holiday Monday in England, well Cornwall to be specific but please keep the votes coming in.
