Not to knock number one, but I wish Gladys could have made it to that spot, because all three versions would have been number one in the ten that way, but it's still a nice ten :D

of my two nominations, VAST did better than expected, while Lawrence Arabia did... well, not worse, but not as good as I thought...

I guess I expected there to be more Pop music fans than Alternative-Industrial-Electro-Rock-with-disturbing-lyrics fans :D

I got a number 1! Good lord, it's been ages since one of my noms made #1. Hooray! :) Of course I guess the song deserves some credit, huh? :P

Not an exciting ten, but some good songs. I'm glad Dionne made it in.

I liked that Vast song and it did well on my list for a song I wasn't that familiar with beforehand. This song and video are disturbing though as it seems to be pro-rape and fem-abuse.

As for the other song, the video completely killed it for me. I could've done without the old man bits and bobs jingling around :P

I think it's equally as 'pro-rape' and 'fem-abuse' as Nirvana's "Rape Me" or Toadies' "Possum Kingdom" is... I take it as the view on the thoughts of a criminal

at first I wanted to reply "But it's art! :beatnik: ", but I can't even write that with keeping a straight face :D

anyway, besides the video, I personally still think it's a cool song :)

Also STP's Sex Type Thing

After reviewing the video, it just seems to be something that he's fantasizing about while driving. The only part of the video that ever actually took place is where he's driving at the beginning and the last 5 seconds of the video. The whole part with the woods and cabin were just a nightmarish dream sequence.

^ yes, that's what I think too

EDIT: of course not "Rape Me", but "Polly" is the song I meant...
