It's the final round of the group stages! So just for a bit of fun...

If you haven't heard any of these songs before then check out the links and you will be able to listen to them. Most are Youtube videos and have picture montages or other irrelevant visuals which can be ignored. However a couple are live performances, so worth checking out. I tried to pick the best quality audio on all the songs.

Here we go then, have a little listen and then make sure you vote for your favourite rare BNL song!

There are lots more that I wanted to include here but couldn't find on Youtube, and I don't feel comfortable uploading stuff from my own collection anywhere this time, for copyright reasons etc etc... so lets just go with this lot - there's a good 15 to choose from. :)

Enjoy, and vote away!

Links - if you don't know the songs:

- Born Human
- McDonald's Girl
- Ballad of Gordon
- Really Useful Engine
- Grim Grinning Ghosts
- (They Long To Be) Close To You
- Toronto FC Anthem
- Trust Me
- La La La La Lemons
- He Makes Me Want Her Again
- Really Don't Know
- Oh Yoko
- I Don't Get It Any More
- Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! (scroll down, track 17, stream)
- Little Green Bag (w/Tom Jones)
- Big Bang Theory
- One Little Slip
- Powder Blue
- It's Only Me (The Wizard of Magicland)
- Thanks That Was Fun
- Get In Line
- Lovers In a Dangerous Time

Don't forget that Snacktime & All In Good Time are still open for votes too, and next week we will get to the song vs song "group stages" - COOL 8-)

It's just like the World Cup!

My vote went for "Yes! Yes!! Yes!!!" - LOVE that song, it's so rockin'.

Should've definitely made it into Everything to Everyone instead of maybe "Have You Seen My Love?"

From the list i'd pick 'He Makes Me Want Her Again'

However, I just realised, that you havent included the below in any of the polls...

'Its only me (The Wizard of Magicland)' 'Get In Line' 'Lovers In a Dangerous Time' 'Thanks That Was Fun' from Disc One, and 'One Little Slip' from Chicken Little OST. The absolutely awesome 'Powder Blue' & 'The Big Bang Theory Theme'

Maybe include them in this poll or start a new one?

Ooh thanks for that - they completely slipped my mind! I think I was trying to be *too* obscure and I completely forgot about those 4 from Disc One, lol. They are now added and people are free to change their votes if necessary. :) In fact, I just changed mine to "It's Only Me". Good ol' song about banging the bishop. Cheers!

HEATHEN!!! I love that song! ;)

I'm going for Powder Blue. Predictable - yes, but it gives me goosebumps..

Although have to say thanks for digging up those clips Liam, I only have about half the rarities, so good to finally see what some of the others are like

Thanks for finding the clips Liam!!

Didn't want to vote for a cover so I went for I Don't Get It Anymore - I'd never heard it and it's gorgeous. Also loved He Makes Me Want Her Again. Glad to hear these songs!

Big fan of Powder Blue and Get in Line already, hope they get some love!

Never heard It's Only Me (The Wizard of Magicland) before, will have to track that down..

Yellow Tape tracks all appeared on Gordon, so that have already been accounted for.

(Except for Fight The Power - slipped my mind. Sorry. Think there's enough here though).

No problem about doing the finding, it was fun. :)

It's got to be 'Little Green Bag', that was my favourite song as a kid and I've only just found out it was BnL, about 3 days ago =D

Went for Yes! Yes!! Yes!! awesome BNL type vibe and was cut from one of my favourite albums! Although I love a good rarity, I know it's not on the list but "long while" a song I got a live version of off iTunes is another awesome rarity (unfortunately the old school DRM means I can only have it on 5 devices)

OK...seeing as I've already had a few more songs pointed out, I'll quote what I said in my original post:

I know I've missed a few but they weren't available on Youtube and I can't upload them as most are still covered by copyright.

This also goes for: Back, Fight The Power, all the Buck Naked songs, Pinch Me Remix, Joseph Brown, Govatsos Shuffle, Skinhead, Teenage Wasteland, Statue, Sign Me Up, Rio, Shake Your Rump, Burn, Careless Whisper, When Doves Cry, Comes A Time, Brian Wilson 2000, Fox On The Run, Gangster Girl, Michael Brennan, Scared Song, The Other Day I Met a Bear.... and whatever else as well.

The 15 that I selected took long enough to compile and write down here, I really hope people can just enjoy those and vote from the ones that ARE here! Sorry everyone!
