"The Classical"

The Classical I suppose, but neither are the most vibrant of Fall songs.

I've always considered The Classical to be a good but overrated song. However, Winter... I don't even begin to understand its popularity. The Classical hands down for me here.

Voted for the classical on impulse and immediately regretted it.

When I first bought Hex I couldn't get past The Classical. Every time it ended I would play it again. Took me ages to listen properly to the rest of the album as I kept going back to the first song. Nowadays, I've probably heard it too much and do feel it's overpraised a little.
I'm so glad Winter has made it this far. I think it deserves to make it to the final, as I do feel like it's amongst their very best songs. I just can't put into words the effect it has on me and what I think MES achieves in the lyrics, but it's a work of genius.

My ideal final would have been Mr Rode vs Fantastic Life, but my ideal final out of this lot would be Winter vs. Blindness.
At the moment, it looks like both are going out, though. :lol:

On any other album, winter would be the stand-out track. But it's on hex, and therefore can't compete with the classical.

The classical for the final, the classical for the cup.

The mad kid walked left-side south-side towards me
He was about seven
His mother was a cleaning lady
She had a large black dog
And the mad kid said:
"Gimme the lead
Gimme the lead
Gimme the lead"
"who's gonna play me in the movie? STING!"

The lyrics to Winter are just beyond all praise.

The mad kid had 4 lights, the average is 2.5 lights
The mediocre has 2 lights, the sign of genius is three lights
There's one light left, that's the one light
That's the science law
Courtesy winter
