9825/10000: Round 1, Week 4

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Dec 13, 2017 2:33 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.

This week contains once again the usual mix between the good, the bad and the baffling.

2 | O.C. Smith | Little Green Apples
4 | Jenny Hval | Female Vampire
7 | Chris Montez | Let's Dance
13 | Stevie Wonder | Overjoyed
Easily the best group, even if Overjoyed is a bit overcooked.

1 | Creedence Clearwater Revival | Ramble Tamble
10 | The Main Ingredient | Everybody Plays the Fool
11 | Prince & The New Power Generation | Money Don't Matter 2 Night
15 | Years & Years | King
Easily the worst group, even if Ramble Tamble is the best song of the week. Everybody Plays the Fool and Money Don't Matter 2 Night are far from bad, but are not remarkable either. Prince specifically has done better. King, finally is one of the most non-descriptive hits of the last few years (and it made me lose a year-end quiz too).

5 | Gerry Mulligan Quartet feat. Chet Baker | My Funny Valentine
8 | Jacques Higelin | Champagne
9 | The Andrews Sisters | Rum and Coca-Cola
14 | Brian Hyland | Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini
Very solid jazz, accompanied by wacky tunes. Rum and Coca-Cola is an example of a good novelty, Polkadot Bikini is a bad one.

3 | Deftones | Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)
6 | Robbie Robertson | Somewhere Down the Crazy River
12 | Barbara Mason | Yes, I'm Ready
16 | Murray Head | Superstar
I love the rage of Deftones and Robertson is classic rock doen well. Yes, I'm Ready is too standard for my tastes. And well, I think Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the most silly creations of humankind and everything associated with it suffers. Out of context, Superstar is even inexplicable.

The deadline will be later than usual so feel free to keep on voting after 15:00 UTC. I will be able to post the next set of matchups at that time though.
