Qualifying Group 10 in The Lux Familiar Cup – in which readers of The Half Man Half Biscuit Lyrics Project choose their favourite songs of all time. Voting on this album closed on Sat 16 April 2011, and the results from this qualifying group are below. A record-breaking hard-jackin’ sound-scaping 976 votes were cast; there was a clear winner, but yet another tight battle for second place and automatic qualification to the Round of 32. The third- and possibly fourth-placed songs should probably not pack their bags and head off to San Antonio yet though.

Qualified for last 32

1. For What Is Chatteris… (16.0%)
2. We Built This Village On A Trad. Arr. Tune (12.0%)

In the race for the fastest losers:

3. Joy Division Oven Gloves (11.3%)
4. Surging out of Convalescence (9.1%)
5. Restless Legs (8.5%)

The voting is over for this giant of an album, but there may be more to be said.
