The League Of Extraordinary Tracks 3: CLOSING TRACKS Results!
Read and comment

Our third League week is over – as ever I want to thank our players who put their faves up for judgement and our participants who took the time to weigh up that excellent set of album closers (and offer some fine commentary too).

Let’s see who takes away the SPOILS this time:

In third place it’s Puerto Rico’s ILE with her more delicate approach to the art of the album closer. In second place we have that most closerish of closers, GREET DEATH’s 9 minute epic. But the winner is PINKY-ANN-RIHAL and their 1985 Hindi new wave disco smash “Tu Aaja”. Which means a second 12 points for actualee simpson who now has 32 out of a possible 36. Is the competition over before it’s even started? Come back tomorrow for the SHORT SONGS playlists and poll to find out.

Meanwhile our players have their Week 5 orders already – it’s going to be Cover Versions again!
