The League Of Extraordinary Tracks 6: 2008 Poll!
Read and comment

LEAGUE OF TRACKS ADMIN!: I’d hoped to only have one skip week on holiday but it looks like that won’t be the case. So we’ll be back with Four Letter Words in two Sundays’ time, and 2023 the week after that. The upshot of that, though, is that I can keep this one open for longer – so I’ve extended it over the weekend. Tell your friends! If you’re a 200-and-h8er tell your enemies too!

This week’s poll takes us back to 2008 – a turbulent year, and a controversial pop poll which led to the “MGMT Clause” to prevent two tracks by the same band meeting in the semi-finals ever again. Today’s poll is however a MGMT-free zone, as our nominators have dug up a bunch of hopefully new-to-you tracks.

As usual, please vote for UP TO FOUR of these songs. And only vote for tracks you DIDN’T PREVIOUSLY KNOW.

To actually hear them all, check out the playlist post

This week we’re revisiting the year 2008 – a decade-and-a-half (and an extensive pop poll) behind us, how does it look and what can we still unearth? Our nominators have risen to the challenge with a dozen tracks. Two of them are either YouTube-only or only on Spotify in some territories, so don’t miss out on those! Once you’ve had a listen, go vote in the poll post.
