Kill or Save: UK No.2 Hits of the 70s

Recommended Posts

Well, our previous host may have departed from his post, but this game, like the expression on Barry Manilow’s face, is going absolutely nowhere.

 

Welcome to the fifth edition of Deathlist’s serene little therapy retreat, Kill or Save! So far, we’ve decided the best chart-topping songs of the 60s-90s, but now it’s time to go back and look at the hits which juuuust missed out on the top spot.

 

Firstly, let’s give a hearty round of applause to Book. He created something brilliant but has decided to retire on a high, thus making him the polar opposite of Paul McCartney. It’s an honour to serve as his successor, and I shall try, unlike all the music we’ll be sorting through, not to be a load of number two.

 

A quick reminder of how it works:

- Each song starts with 20 points (whether it deserves it or not).

- Once a day, you can award 4 points to and subtract 6 from (NOT the other way around, for fuck sake) any songs of your choosing in each round. You can split your daily +4 and -6 however you like, it’s down to you.

- Make sure you copy and paste the most recent voter’s scoreboard when you take your turn to score.

- Just to make it clear for everyone, please mark your scores after the song title and adjust the song’s points total as you go. (e.g.14 The Beatles -- Shite Song -6)

- You can only vote once a day. To avoid any time zone confusion, please put a date at the top of your scoring post (e.g. “Sat 1 Jul”, “01-07-2023”, whatever, as long as it’s clear and doesn’t just say “today” or some shit.)

 

Everyone makes mistakes sometimes, so I’d just like to shout out to all of our careful and attentive players who are shit hot on any potential errors that may arise. This here is serious business don’t you know, so thank you for keeping things in order.

As ever, we will start with 5 group stages, beginning with the No.2 hits of 1970/71, followed by a grand final consisting of the 25 songs that have qualified, where we will ultimately decide what the undisputed best No.2 single of the 1970s is. Wow, what an honour. In this game, as the number of No.2 hits starting each round is fairly similar, I shall keep it simple and say that 5 songs in each round will qualify for the grand final.

 

1970/71: 30 songs

1972/73: 28 songs

1974/75: 34 songs

1976/77: 27 songs

1978/79: 25 songs

 

So, without further ado… *dramatic look to camera like desperate gameshow host* …let’s Kill or Save.

Thank you, dear TQR, for always having so much fun with this little game and for continuing it.

And thank you for your compliments too! I never thought that the KoS would have such an impact here that we are now entering the fifth game, that there are many regular players and that other players would also like to accompany a game round. I think this is a great development here in the forum! Very cool, very positive!

Apologies, I gave Middle of the Road +1 (for Sally Carr being a very youthful crush rather than musical reasons) but forgot to add 1 to the 20. Can the next person adjust them to 21 please.

I did wonder if this might earn MotR some otherwise undeserving points

It's certainly bottom 3. It was saved from -6 this time by the fact that Young Bulgaria thought it was a fun song 53 years ago, whereas the Hurricane Smith song is just dull.

I listened to it for the first time about an hour ago. I’m still processing how awful an experience it was.

I can remember virtually every word of Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep, but not a single word of Tweedle Dum Tweedle Dee. I just get Michael Jackson's voice in my head for some reason.

I never understood the appeal of Ray Stevens novelty records. (See also The Streak) Didn't mind his serious recordings.

I'd still pick it over Bridget the Midget, but I take your point; a better engineer/producer than singer.

Apologies, I gave Middle of the Road +1 (for Sally Carr being a very youthful crush rather than musical reasons) but forgot to add 1 to the 20. Can the next person adjust them to 21 please.

Ta.

Fixed! They now have 21 points!
