Congratulations go to Neil for the best track of CD 16 The Distance by Cake with a score of 113 points.

Second place goes to Bob for Gameshow by Two Door Cinema Club scoring 94 points and just pipping Simon’s Nightswimming by CD club regulars R.E.M. which scored 93 points.

Shall we just get the wooden spoon out of the way? Well it was Jim with Out Of The Blue by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. At least it scored 13 points. Just one point behind La Copa De La Vida making this possibly one of the least favoured opening two tracks in the history of the CD Consortium.

On to ‘who put on what’ and Pete H looked set to return to form guessing, 6 contributors correctly, alongside Pete K (is this a Pete thing? *checks Pete Q* *sees score of 5* maybe it is!) but then a last-minute dip at the finish line saw Neil edge to victory, correctly identifying 7 contributors! So, a double victory for Neil.

Unsurprisingly, Pete ‘anything with a mandolin or by the Pogues or both’ Quin was picked out the most times (8). This means that there are 5 guessers who still haven’t sussed out Pete’s tastes? What’s wrong with you people? Also, what’s wrong with the people who didn’t guess that it was Katja who put on ‘Tour De France’ by the German group Kraftwerk who Katja went to watch this summer, and who also went to watch the start of the ‘Tour de France’?

Avoiding detection completely this time round were: Sam, Rob and Pete K.

CD15 - Anima15 - Results


Without further ado, the winning track with 107 points is ‘The Ground Walks With Time In A Box’ by Modest Mouse, as chosen by *ahem* me. Second with 82 points was ‘The Love Cats’ by The Cure, as chosen by Franck, and then we have a tie for the bronze medal with 77 points each, ‘Techno Fan’ by The Wombats, as chosen by Bob and ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’ by The Pixies, as chosen by Kate.

 

Champions of guessing who put on what were: Neil and Bob with 5 guesses each. Of those who chose to guess at who put on what, Rob and Sam were the worst, totally failing to identify anyone other than themselves. The extent of Rob’s and Sam’s failure is only highlighted by the presence of a track which had Pete Quinn’s name written all over it – it could only have been more obviously Pete’s track if it had been called ‘Pete Quinn’s Track’ by ‘The Band Chosen By Pete Quinn’. Indeed Pete Quinn was the most picked out person, being identified only 7 times!! We had several people evading detection completely this time, those being: Pete H, Sam, me, Bob, Rob, Neil, Howard and Pete K.

 

Franck’sThe Love Cats’ made it onto most people’s scoresheets – well 14/17 anyway. The tracks making onto the fewest number of scoresheets being ‘Marvin Gaye’ and ‘You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth’ which brings us nicely on to the wooden spoon.

 

Well, Pete H had a good run at it by dipping into the pool of music that is down with the kids of today, Jasper failed to appreciate the sense of ‘meh’ most people feel about Meat Loaf, and the level to which people found the opening dialogue irritating, and so ‘You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth’ scored only 9 points. Jasper remains convinced that this a personal thing, but I will point out that only 3 people thought it was his track, and I do the utmost to guard the identity of all contributors at all times.
