Ok, i know we all try and guess which tracks Bob's gonna play, so i thought it would be a good idea to get some kind of fun competion together, lets say you can choose a max of 5 tunes per show starting with next weeks Blood (i think we may have to miss out war!), 1pt to be scored per correct selection, list to be in by Tuesday night.
Here's my 5 for Blood
1. Young Blood - The Coasters
2. Hide ye in the Blood - The Stanley Brothers
3. Flesh & Blood - Johnny Cash
4. Blood of the Lamb - Billy Bragg & Wilco
5. Bloody Mary Morning - Willie Nelson

Good Luck

I tried this back at the old Dylan Pool when TTRH first started. It got pretty crazy though.

1. Blood & Fire - Niney The Observer
2. Hemoglobin - Lou Grassi (probably in the background though)
3. There Will Be Blood - Jonny Greenwood (also probably in the background)
4. Real Live Bleeding Fingers & Broken Guitar Strings - Lucinda Williams
5. Only Women Bleed - Ike & Tina Turner (or Alice Cooper, why not)
