        • Time to lose another song, and I'm rather confused. Back last year, I took part in the Artists Cup - and breezed through the group stage really easily. Therefore, I was into the knockouts in a prime position, against someone who had really struggled. I thought it was safe to pick the wonderful second single from the latest album - "Norman and Norma". A fair number of people really rather slated it, compared to the other tracks I'd featured. Therefore, I had a feeling it wouldn't do so well here. In the end, it's sailed into the top 10. I'm glad to see it's done really well here, but such a shame it didn't pull off the same feat in the Artists Cup.

                      • I say... how about a little kiss?... Oh, don't be unkind!

                        Time for another upset? I think so. In sixth place, we have the song that actually came top or joint top in each of the four initial phases. The story of an unfaithful man who gets his comeuppance, "Something For The Weekend" was their biggest hit before "National Express" came along. When the greatest hits came out, one suggested title was "Woodshed Express", in honour of their two biggest hits.

                                    • No votes this round from Ivan, but it doesn't matter, because he wouldn't have changed a thing.

                                      If you'd asked me at the start to predict the top 5 - there's one that I wouldn't have predicted. Indeed, if you'd asked me right at the first post to predict the top 180, one of the top 5 I wouldn't have predicted, as I actually didn't know it at all! It took the combination of this survivor, and its featuring on a 40th birthday present compilation I had from one of the voters here that made me know it, and realise it's a lovely song.

                                      "God Help The Girl" was a 2009 album by Stuart Murdoch, best known for being a member of Belle and Sebastian (the group who beat the likes of Steps, Five and Billie to Best British Newcomer at the Brits and then outlasted all of them by many years). It was made into a film in 2014 as well. One of the tracks on the album featured a lady called Catherine Ireton - the lead vocalist of a pop-jazz group called Elephant, alongside Neil - "Perfection As A Hipster". Chantal nominated it but it even got to the stage a little while ago that she was voting it out. Others came to truly love it, but alas once there was no longer a save vote, it really was a dead duck.

                                            They're all good, but I'd be disappointed if this wins over the other three left.
