9825/10000: Round 1, Week 1

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Nov 22, 2017 3:03 pm

The way this game works is that you will be given four sets of four songs, your job is to rank each of the sets from best to worst. First place gets 4 points, second gets 3 etc.

The song with the most points in each set will advance into the next round. If there is a tie for points, then the song with more first place votes will advance. If they are tied on first place votes as well, there will be a sudden death tiebreak. Also after the first round, the four highest scoring songs (based off point per voter so results are easier to compare) that didn't win a set will also advance to the next round.

Feel free to ask any questions, deadline is next Wednesday at 15:00 UTC.

The first quartet was quite terrible, but it got a lot better after that. Eurythmics would have won in the first group.
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

How cool Chorus is just reinforces how disappointing the barely listenable following album was.
Don't care about the other 3 but Was ist Musik? isn't helped by the fact I kept hearing "racist music"

Wow, really hard to rank these songs! Especially the overplayed "The Heat Is On" and the odd but growing "Chorus", but also all the rest as well. Bang Jan, if there will be any ties, you can disregard my vote...

Fun to see Death (and Carcass) in an AM game ! I'd rather have had an earlier Death track though, I find their 80s music more fun.

Not an inspiring group, even if it isn't really bad. I like that this game kicks off with a full-blown heavy metal song - probably the least popular genre on this forum. Sadly, The Philosopher strikes me as a bit too stereotypical to stand out.

2 | The White Stripes | I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself
4 | Eric Bogle | And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda
10 | Bruce Springsteen | One Step Up
11 | The Hollies | Look Through Any Window
A much better group. For some weird reason, I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself is one of my favorite White Stripes tracks. And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda is very moving too, with a more classic feel than it's age would suggest. Springsteen and The Hollies don't deliver the best of their careers, but these are solid efforts nonetheless.

3 | Holly Herndon | Chorus
5 | Glenn Frey | The Heat Is On
8 | Frank Sinatra | Only the Lonely
14 | Justus Köhncke | Was ist Musik?
I discovered Chorus only last week and it is one of the weirdest songs I know. But dammit if it doesn't work. I almost feel guilty for ranking The Heat Is On so high as it is cheesy as hell, but that one also works. Only the Lonely is also good Sinatra. Was Ist Musik doesn't do much for me, though.

1 | Elton John | Levon
6 | The Buoys | Timothy
7 | Count Basie | Jumpin' at the Woodside
16 | Eurythmics | When Tomorrow Comes
Levon is one of my favorite Elton John tracks and I always felt is was underated. Glad to see it here. Timothy is a wacky novelty that I like and Jumpin' at the the Woodside is very catchy jazz. When Tomorrow Comes, though, is simply not for me.
