9825/10000: Round 1, Week 5

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Dec 20, 2017 2:29 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.

Only one song I truly love this week, although most things are okay.

2 | A$AP Rocky feat. Rod Stewart, Miguel & Mark Ronson | Everyday
3 | Prince | I Wish U Heaven
5 | SebastiAn | Ross Ross Ross
15 | Jeremih | 773 Love
773 Love is completely unremarkable. The rest is pretty good.

1 | The Slits | Instant Hit
4 | Huey Lewis and The News | Hip to Be Square
12 | Sammy Johns | Chevy Van
13 | The Chiffons | Sweet Talkin' Guy
I love Instant Hit; The Slits were really one of a kind. Hip to Be Square is fun pop. The other two songs don't register as much with me.

6 | The Coasters | That Is Rock'n'roll
7 | Post Malone | White Iverson
9 | Young Thug | Digits
14 | Zucchero Fornaciari | Dune mosse
Outside of the kitsch of Dune Mosse I can take or leave all these songs.

8 | The Intruders | I'll Always Love My Mama
10 | Eurythmics | You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart
11 | Demi Lovato | Cool for the Summer
16 | Frankie Avalon | Why
There are few things in music more terrible to me than Frankie Avalon's schmaltz. The other 3 songs are good enough.
