It’s the third 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 26 February 2011, and the results from this qualifying group are below. An impressive 440 votes were cast, and we had a runaway winner and a comfortable second-place going through to the knockout stage. One or two songs may stand a chance in the “strongest third place” slots which will be available.

The voting may be over, but I’m sure the post-match analyses are only just beginning.
