Re: AM World Cup: Rules, Schedule, Pools, and Song Lists

Listyguy, I remember in the other cup the matches from "round of 32" on were arranged in a way that the most acclaimed artists were all in contiguous brackets, leading to possible combats like The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones or Dylan vs Bowie right in the round of 32. How will be the order of the ...

Re: Rank the Tracks: The Beatles' Revolver

Interesting that through these lists you can easily differentiate the Paul fans from the John & George fans. Many lists (including mine) putting all Paul's tracks at its bottom, while some others do the exact opposite.

Re: New Unacclaimed?

Good idea. That "unnaclaimed song tournament" has been one of the best games we've done here. And, like Henrik said, the best part is to nominate the tracks and listen to all the participant songs. Reading everybody's opinions is also another part of the fun. So, even tough comments might not be man...
