BBC Radio 6 Northern Soul World Cup

BBC Radio 6 Northern Soul World Cup cover

BBC geezer has what may be an interesting show setup, all a bit mainstream tracks wise but guess that was always going to be so,  info and link follow below

Steve Lamacq's Northern Soul World Cup
From 5 to 9 June, we will be crowning another champion in the latest edition of our, always popular, occasionally divisive, musical World Cup.

Back in March, 6 Music’s very own Jarvis Cocker, lifted the Alternative 90s Trophy, on behalf of Common People, when Pulp beat Primal Scream in a tense final.

Now it’s time to shine your shoes, and dust the talcum powder of your wide-legged trousers, as we search for the best Northern Soul track.

The winner will be revealed on the show on Friday 9 June. You can vote in the first knock out round until 5pm, Tuesday 6 June, on our Twitter. Read the full terms and conditions here.

There are some tough ties in the first round, not least two titans of the nominations: Frankie Valli vs The Snake.

The full shortlist is below:

1. Al Wilson - The Snake
2. Billy Butler – The Right Track
3. Chuck Wood - Seven Days Too Long
4. Dobie Gray - Out On The Floor
5. Edwin Starr - Time
6. Frank Wilson - Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)
7. FFrankie Valli - The Night
8. Gloria Jones - Tainted Love
9. Jimmy Radcliffe - Long After Tonight Is All Over
10. Judy Street - What
11.Luther Ingram - Exus Trek
12.Marvin Gaye - This Love Starved Heart Of Mine (It’s Killing Me)
13.R Dean Taylor - There’s A Ghost In My House
14.Rita & The Tiaras - Gone With The Wind Is My Love
15.Tobi Legend - Time Will Pass You By
16.Tony Clarke - Landslide
Get involved in the vote below...
