Perfect Songs FINAL SHOWDOWN..

it's here.. what you all have been waiting for with baited breath and nipples as hard and hot as a crucible..
1Harry Pussy
What Was Music?


The finalists are SandwichStubble, VirtualGrey'sAnatomy and Frippersonicsthehedgehogs..

I want three songs, nay three PERFECT songs.. in the following genres:
one noise song
one art rock song
one song of your own choosing..

The answer to all stipulating questions as to what qualifies noise or art rock is Pffft!
2Throbbing Gristle
The First Annual Report


Sandwich 1

Whorle of Sounds - Difficult and transgressive, which is exactly what noise music should be at its core, this tune maintains a fairly solid structural underbelly, while pummeling you with feedback, effects and spoken word newscaster-like vocals.. I love it.. 4/5
3Ludus
Danger Came Smiling


Sandwich 2

I Can't Swim - Oh, this is fucking lovely.. patented 80's, female-led, trumpet no-wave art rock, a genre and niche i've always loved dearly.. this is a properly perfect song, from the poppy, bouncing first act, to the noisy breakdown to the mash that closes it off.. cheers.. 5/5
4Mort Garson
Plantasia


Sandwich 3

Concerto For Philodendron And Pothos - a spacey, ambient instrumental.. quite beautiful and patient, but did nothing extraordinary for me.. 3/5
5Lost Salt Blood Purges / Volcanic Queen
Movements Viewed Through a Variety of Lenses


Blaze 1

Sol'r (Voltaeia ê an'a) - Fantastic track! I've always loved that romantic tonality, in both noise and ambient music.. beautiful and packed with the feeling of abandon.. 4.5/5
6Everything Everything
Arc


Blaze 2

Cough Cough - nicely chaotic, and the synths and bass get wonderfully dense in the second half.. but i'm not crazy about the grandiose, arena vocal stylings, and the song itself, while solid didn't hit me in the right spot.. 3/5
7Clarence Clarity
No Now


Blaze 3

1-800-WORSHIP - It kicked off on such a noisy, electro-bang, i wasn't expecting the song to then ease into white boy RnB.. the sound turns downright evil in later moments, which i loved a lot.. but again, this song, while an incredibly smart nightclub rave-up, is exactly that, a nightclub rave-up,, 3/5
8Midori
Second (Demo)


Fripp 1

(ミドリ) - ゆきこさん - YES!!! Fucking hell, yes!!! 5/5
9Prefab Sprout
Jordan: The Comeback


Fripp 2

Jordan: The Comeback - hmmm.. arty, yes.. subliminally proggy? unfortunately, yes.. fantastic musicianship, but not really my thing.. 3/5
10Brian Eno
Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks


Fripp 3

Always Returning - My run through Eno's ambient catalogue is spotty, because so much of it bleeds into one another, though I suppose ambient has no choice but to do so.. hard to deny this beauty though.. 4/5
11Harry Pussy
Let's Build A Pussy


Sandwich Final Score -- 4/5
Blaze Final Score -- 3.5/5
Fripp Final Score -- 4/5

We have a tie! So we're going SUDDEN DEATH between Sandwich and Fripp.. one more perfect song in any genre of your liking, though do use these scores to gauge which will bring you this much-sought victory and the status it will provide.. since Sandwich, Fripp and me all live in different timezones, this sudden death will be less sudden than usual..
12Pram
Gash


Sandwich

Blue Singer - steadfast and brimming with attitude and atmosphere.. a fantastic track from a band i've shamefully never heard of before this tourney.. that'll change in a hurry.. phenomenal, plus the artwork is so patentedly 90's, it gave me nostalgic pangs out the ass.. 4.5/5
13John Cale
Sabotage/Live


Fripp

Rosegarden Funeral Of Sores - that goddamn bassline.. they've got swollen breasts and lips that putter, parasitic streams of whores, rosegarden funeral of sores!! beauty! just edged out Pram for the unsettled poetry and the damn fine proto-industrial scuzz.. 5/5
14Harry Pussy
Untitled (aka Fuck You)


YOUR WINNER, CHAMPION OF THE PEOPLE, GRAND PHILOSOPHER and rumoured necromaniac - Fripp!!
