Unacclaimed IV: The Draw

Post by whuntva »

Here is the draw for the fourth installment of Unacclaimed. Let's hope for a great tournament.

I had nineteen lists and no dupes that I could discern. The groups were all randomized.

Double the playing field means double the groups, so possibly double the volume per week. Would you be okay with sixteen songs per week?

I will only post links during play. For now, just have the titles.

I will give a break for one day to review the draw, then we can start the tourney on Monday.

The theme this year is celestial bodies. The names just came into my head.

I know for a fact that some of the songs are part of the list of songs planned to be added to AM in 2017.

OK which ones?

I do have backups. And since we are going by the unofficial update, the songs should be ineligible if they fail the song or album tests. Maybe I should have made that clear when Henrik delivered that list.

Some are part of the current "to be added to AM", but also others will be added due to lists that have been posted recently. Would the latter be eligible, but not the already announced "to be added"?

I'd say to make it easier and reach a fair compromise...yes. The latter should be eligible. We'll say as of Henrik's findings when the tourney was announced.

But in the meantime, I had trouble navigating the TBA list. Could someone please make it easier and tell me which songs are on that list so I can replace them?

Orchestra Baobab - Mouhamadou Bamba is to be added to AM.
Chuck Berry - Reelin' and Rockin' is to be added to AM, but this was not announced until September 19, so it might still be fine.
Disco Inferno - The Last Dance is to be added to AM. I don't know if "The Long Dance" is still eligible.
William Shatner - Common People is to be added to AM.

Squalloscope - Big Houses is in both the Saturn and Vesta groups.

"Reelin and Rockin" will be allowed in the game.

Jury's still out on "Long Dance", so in the meantime, only two songs will be swapped out. And one dupe.

The songs selected to replace them are:

Annie-Anthonio
Mulatu Astatke - Tezeta
Four Tet - Parallel Jalebi

And from eyeballing the TBA spreadsheet, they seem fine.

If there are no further complaints, the tournament can start in about an hour.

I decided to move it up since I'm going back to work tomorrow, and will just be easier to have the tourney close on a weekday.

Would it be too much to ask to have this topic pinned?

This is mostly for my sake so I can find the current week's draw sooner.

IF anyone has any objections to "Long Dance" being eligible, it is not too late to let me know so I can switch it out.
