So as we edge ever closer to the top songs, we have to say goodbye to another fan favourite...

09. Kanye West - Black Skinhead (8 votes, 26.67%)

As the longest lasting single from Kanye's last full album release 'Yeezus' (well, there wasn't really much competition with Bound 2 joint last), we see 'Black Skinhead' perform incredibly well, getting its top 10 placing at #09. The song acted as the first single his sixth studio album, however was still a post-album single, with 'Yeezus' dropping with no previous lead. The songs pounding drums and anger filled vocals mean it is certainly not one of Kanye's more easy-listening tracks, with its sonically abrasive style gaining it much praise from critics and fans a-like. The song, although not reaching high peaks in the charts (#34 on the UK Singles Chart and #69 on US Billboard Hot 100) could be said to be one of Kanye's biggest commercial successes of recent years, managing to rack up sales of 200,000 copies in the UK despite its peak. The song not only had staying power in the charts, but also clearly in this rate, easily securing its much deserving low top 10 place. I do agree that it was probably it's time to go now though as it doesn't scream Kanye classic like the songs we have left.

Really getting tough one to call now. With the songs seeming to get such different numbers of votes every round (e.g. 'Runaway' getting lots and then hardly getting any last round, the sudden surge for 'Heartless' out of the blue last time) it would appear the result kind of depends on which of the previous voters turn out again. *prays for the 'Love Lockdown' voters*

With 'Stronger' finally gone (yes I'm late to that, you're either going super duper quick with these or I'm not paying enough attention kink.gif) everything left is pretty excellent. I've gone for 'All Of The Lights' now.

Through the Wire. Cannot deal with Jesus Walks not being the last College Dropout single standing.

There's probably only 2 left I really love (Heartless & All Of The Lights) with the 2 weakest being Jesus Walks & Runaway.

I honestly just can't comprehend this at all mellow.gif

For me it's one of his most memorable songs EVER. It is just so big and stomping and powerful in sound.

It just doesn't register with me! laugh.gif

I often hear 'POWER' on TV adverts etc. I always see it as one of his most well-known songs now and one of the few of his i hear around without choosing to.

Anyway despite that, it gets my vote here.
