#Clay5 Round Up – 2 March 2015
Time for our weekly countdowns, results as voted by the public! Remember – if you want to get your say on these countdowns head over to the official #Clay5 twitter!
MON FEB 23rd – DUSTIN HOFFMAN MOVIES
It says something about Hoffman that the vote results came in so close together, leading to a three-way tie for the final two spots. No Tootsie though – quite a surprise that!
1. Rain Man
3. All the President’s Men
4.-5. The Graduate/Hook/Stranger Than Fiction
TUES FEB 24th – TV SHOWS THAT WERE AXED/ENDED TO SOON
I think you can guess what the first pick for this list is going to be – still one of the greatest travesties in popular culture history. Lots of interesting picks for the rest of the list though.
2. Freaks and Geeks
3. Arrested Development
5. Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip
WED FEB 25th – SONGS by HEART
This rock/folk/metal influenced, sibling centred Canadian group have been working the stages of the world for decades. And you’re likely to have at least one of these tracks stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
3. Crazy On You
4. Magic Man
5. All I Want To Do Is Make Love To You/Straight On

One of the most renown and talented actors working in cinema today, the results of the vote show just how varied her work is by crossing over many genres.
1. The Aviator
2. Blue Jasmine
4. Little Fish
5. Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Ring

1. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Beatles)
2. All Things Must Pass (solo)
3.-5. Beware of Darkness (solo)/Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) (solo)/Here Comes The Sun (Beatles)/My Sweet Lord (solo)/Something (Beatles)
