I take responsibility for one of those but surprised at the Absolute Radio standard.
Still if it means they play the new single a lot more.

The Girl Who Wanted to Be God has been loved, or should I say hated, to death.
And Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head is the last cover to be eliminated.

I love The Girl Who Wanted To Be God too.

Now we've got the covers out of the way, we can finally discuss the pros and cons of real songs.

Horses Under Starlight should be out next, for me. It's not really a proper song, is it?

Ah see, that's... I... I... I've always had a soft spot for the first instrumental track they released. My money is on another KC b-side to win on the b-side though.

Enola / Alone has just pipped Removables to the top, becoming song numero cinco to be removed from the album.
Horses Under Starlight is the B-side. Can't really say anything but baa-ba-ba-ba-ba-baa-ba-ba-baaa-ba.

Are people just skipping NSAF and voting off songs in backwards order on the album?

EDIT: Ah ok, Enola/Alone is the 4th track, isn't it?

Well if Enols/Alone is gone and that's still there then come the fuck on!

edit: Not talking about NSAF or I would have quoted!

Now is the turn of Removables.
Dead Passive didn't fare well. So it's farewell.

Down to five of my favourite songs full stop. Still, vote I must and vote I will, the suffragettes and suffragists didn't suffer so I could cop out.

Bizarre to see the masterpiece that is Kevin Carter in the queue to the exit.

No One Knows What It's Like To Be Me always struck me as the most stereotypically self-pitying song in their catalogue, so I won't be sorry to see it voted out.

Sepia, though, well, if it doesn't win I, too, will indeed be somewhat miffed.

I voted for KC as my least favourite of what was left. I'll get my coat shall I ?

And yet there's even a weaker song than Kevin Carter that saw Enola.. even Further Away leave before it stayed in. But just like The Apprentice, you get to see weaker links easier when there's less candidates so they can't hide behind!
