CD9 - "Nein (The Negative Album)" - Invitation

Welcome to CD Club #9 - "Nein (The negative album)"
For the latest CD club compilation think of tracks that celebrate the adverse, that champion the pessimist, songs that deny or oppose, or songs that just say no:
How about "I would do anything for love (but I won't do that)" by Meat Loaf? "(I can't get no) Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones? It could be "No woman, no cry" by Bob Marley and the Wailers or (for Pete) the Traditional "Irish Rover"?
You've all got the usual 7 minutes and 16 seconds to give me as many (or little) tracks as you like, so long as at least one of them conforms to the theme. I will send you all a link to a dropbox folder in due course, but if you prefer to provide tracks in a different manner then get in touch.
Let's aim to have this one available before the dark nights set in (i.e. before the clocks go back).
Happy selecting!

CD 8 - Hydr8ed - Mick's Comments

Mick's comments to accompany the results:

Subject: CD8 AND THE WINNER IS ...

Katja - with Over My Shoulder by I AM Kloot.  Well done Katja, especially as it follows a bronze for CD7.

This won by a decent margin, followed by Neil and Chris.  I can't say I'm surprised as they're all fine tracks - not, of course, as good as mine (Robben Ford and CCR's Green River) which collected the wooden spoon and wooden spoon runner up spots - is this a record? I don't know how I do it for the money!

The two-track winner is Chris with 86 points, followed by Neil with 84 and Katja with 77.  Five players were in the 50 - 60 range, which gives support to the general impression that people regard it as a good CD.  Just to rub it in I totalled 14 points, 34 adrift of the next total.

Chris showed his knowledge of the punters' taste with a very good 8 strikes in the guessing game - a 36% success rate.

Thanks to all for excellent submissions, and now over to Neil, your next host.
