2 Freaks is good but out of the nominees given, I would have picked We Want Your Soul, it's so much better!


nuskool breaks best website? It's so boring! Should have been Release ;)


but that's just my opinion.

2 freaks = 2 cheesy.

we want your soul was at least new, interesting, and groundbreaking. 2 freaks sounds like wannabee fischerspooner crap. too bad. otherwise i'm down with the selections given the nominees.

did you catch ant's (kicks) set? he was pretty excited about it on msn. he's always wicked.

thanks for the heads' up robb :)

I guess it's different strokes for different folks, but Rennie and Blim had to do something right to get a lot of people to vote for that track, and the funny part is that I didn't even vote for this as best single. I can see how a lot of you don't like it, but I think it's a pretty creative track if you ask me and a lot different from a lot of other tracks, but I'm pretty sure there was a lot of singles out there that put this single to shame, but I haven't heard them it yet.

Just because something isn't done in the world of 'breaks' doesn't mean it's original. Go download Emerge by Fischerspooner and do a little comparison, they're practically the same riff and Chickaboo's lyrics are beyond cheese. This is not to say that the track is 'bad' or anything, it's just the most recycled and poppy of the candidates, which is why it had such mass appeal and won.

I think We Want Your Soul was a lot more interesting personally, but to each their own.

Anyway, Breakspoll has never pretended to be about what the 'best' in each category is, they even include the word 'poll' in the name, so how can you get that upset really?

*sigh

^^I'm not upset just seeing the reason behind your decision on that particular track. That's the funny part about tribe sometimes everybody takes your post the worng way.

Yeah a lot of UK talent in there. I could also see a lot more people voting from the UK out of most countries. Has there ever been Canadian talent on breakspolls before?

our scene's just not quite big enough yet methinks. we just don't have the numbers required to vote someone to the winner's circle.

...and although we certainly have the talent, we have yet to have someone gain the international recognition required to win.

soon enough...

i wonder how the year's big singles rank in terms of sales.

i would hazard a guess that 'we want your soul' would come out on top.

^^but it's the votes that count with breakspoll. I have both tracks and think they're both great tracks. I know from this poll they hate 2 Freaks, but it's the best single EVAR!:p

say what you will about 2 freaks, but it rocks the house every time!

the reason why the majority of the winners are from the UK is because that's where most of the voters are from...

before you complain about the results, ask youselves this question...

DID YOU VOTE?

...if not, you best be votin next year!!
