Television - Marquee Moon
Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers, trumpets, towers and tenements, wide oceans full of tears, flags, rags, ferryboats, scimitars and scarves. Every precious dream and vision, underneath the stars.

Well I hope that Undertones - Teenage Kicks gets some more votes to make it into the HOF. It was annoying when Black Sabbath - War Pigs missed out on the HOF by one week. This almost happened with Nick Cave not so long ago!
