And so to the second qualifying group 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 19 February 2011, and the results from this qualifying group are below. Exactly 400 votes were cast, and two songs go through to the knockout stage. One was well ahead of the rest, but it was a close race for second; however, there are a few “strongest third place” slots up for grabs.

Qualified for last 32

1. The Bastard Son of Dean Friedman (25.5%)
2. Dickie Davies Eyes (15.8%)

In the race for the fastest losers:

3. I Was A Teenage Armchair Honved Fan (14.3%)
4. Rod Hull Is Alive – Why? (10.5%)

If you missed the vote and wish to hurl abuse at the ignorance of the masses, there’s a nice space to do it in below. Perhaps the good Vendor will provide some expert punditry again.
