Thumbs up Best of the Best

After nearly nine months, the FD survivors have nearly drawn to a close. But there is one more left - a quest to find the Manics' greatest song.
This will be a return to the traditional format, where the least popular song is voted off each day.
The results are in... MOTORCYCLE EMPTINESS is the band's greatest song as voted by you, with just 7 of 22 of you (32%) favouring Masses Against the Classes.

Album:
13. Europa Geht Durch Mich 28%, 9 votes
12. Send Away the Tigers 24%, 6 votes
11. Golden Platitudes 39%, 13 votes
10. 30-Year War 38%, 13 votes
9. Intravenous Agnostic 33%, 9 votes
8. International Blue 32%, 13 votes
7. 1985 35%, 7 votes
6. Peeled Apples 25%, 7 votes
5. From Despair to Where 44%, 12 votes
4. Archives of Pain 35%, 11 votes
3. If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next 48%, 14 votes
2. A Design for Life 57%, 17 votes
1. MOTORCYCLE EMPTINESS 43%, 13 votes

B-sides:
15. Heyday of the Blood 22%, 5 votes
14. A Soundtrack to Complete Withdrawal 25%, 5 votes
13. The Sound of Detachment 30%, 7 votes
12. We Were Never Told 40%, 10 votes
11. All Alone Here 30%, 6 votes
10. See it like Sutherland 38%, 10 votes
9. Broken Up Again 41%, 7 votes
8. Primitive Painters
7. Too Cold Here 35%, 7 votes
6. Judge Yr'self 35%, 8 votes
5. Motown Junk 34%, 10 votes
4. Sepia 35%, 9 votes
3. Donkeys 38%, 12 votes
2. Prologue to History 54%, 14 votes
1. THE MASSES AGAINST THE CLASSES 46%, 12 votes

Which two fools voted for Donkeys?! Can't believe Heyday of the Blood and The Sound of Detachment won their respective polls previously as well!

Predictions of winners:

Motorcycle Emptiness
Motown Junk

Europa Geht Durch Mich and Heyday of the Blood are first out the door.
Album: https://www.strawpoll.me/16248759
B-sides: https://www.strawpoll.me/16248770

Also spotted GT in the CD section of my local Poundland earlier, along with some other decent albums, namely Astral Weeks by Van Morrison, Screamadelica by Primal Scream, Discovery by Daft Punk, New Adventures in Hi-Fi by R.E.M. and a Supergrass compilation. Still beats the myriad of 00s pop garbage they usually serve up there, I guess.

Wow, Europa is one of my favourites! So with you not voting tomorrow and that song being voted out, it's the referendum all over again!
And you might have voted in the referendum, Porco, I just know loads who thought there was no point in voting because Remain would win.
Now I just need to be reported to the DWP and the groundhog day can continue.

We say Auf Weidersehen to Europa Geht Durch Much...
Gone to the past Heyday Of The Blood...
Send Away The Tigers sent off
And somebody changed the record on A Soundtrack For Complete Withdrawal.

Those were hit and miss, but you do them better!

Puns are back by popular demand! Golden Platitudes got too deep, got too involved and The Sound of Detachment gouged its eyeballs out again.

30-Year War was killed in the name of liberty.
We Were Never Told washed away its fears.
