9825/10000: Round 1, Week 6

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Dec 27, 2017 3:38 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.

1 | Linda Ronstadt | When Will I Be Loved
10 | Broder Daniel | Shoreline
11 | Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods | Billy Don't Be a Hero
12 | Donovan | There Is a Mountain
Very solid group. I don't have to change the order. Although When I Will I Be Loved strikes me as truly great, all the others are memorable too.

5 | Liza Minnelli | Losing My Mind
9 | Don Fardon | (The Lament of the Cherokee) Indian Reservation
13 | David Ackles | Down River
14 | Golpes Bajos | Malos tiempos para la lirica
Here I reverse the order. I'm surprised by how much I like the Minnelli song. Fardon is poignant. The other two are just fine.

3 | L7 | Shove
4 | Justice | Safe and Sound
15 | Clock DVA | 4 Hours
16 | Bob B. Soxx & BlueJeans | Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah
L7 and Justice deliver two of the best songs of the week, but the other two close the list. 4 Hours is forgettable and Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah is annoying.

2 | Soundgarden | Rusty Cage
6 | Stereophonics | Local Boy in the Photograph
7 | Iggy Pop | Dum Dum Boys
8 | Jacques Brel | Les Vieux
Good group! It's weird that Jacques Brel, being one of my favorite artists, comes in last, but this isn't his best work, while the other three are strong.
