9825/10000: Round 1, Week 9

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Jan 17, 2018 3:09 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.

9992 | Pawlo Humeniuk | Tanec Pid Werbamy/Dance Under the Willows
9921 | Neil Sedaka | Laughter in the Rain
Of course, Beth Ditto wins this round, but I didn't expect to enjoy the Carcass track so much. Sedaka sucks.

9898 | John Kongos | He's Gonna Step on You Again
9927 | The Fall | Hip Priest
9839 | Ready For the World | Love You Down
9986 | Billy Murray | You're a Grand Old Rag
Kongos' track is some great '70s fuzz-rock, but Happy Mondays still did it better. Still like it more than the rest of them (although the Fall track is pretty good).

9971 | 10,000 Maniacs | Hey Jack Kerouac
9883 | Badly Drawn Boy | I Need a Sign
9854 | Sarah McLachlan | Sweet Surrender
9942 | David Seville | Witch Doctor
I like all of these except for Witch Doctor.

9944 | Queen | Flash
9969 | Primal Scream | Shoot Speed/Kill Light
9881 | The Darkness | Get Your Hands Off My Woman
9856 | Joe South | Don't It Make You Want to Go Home
I'm no fool - Queen's awesome histrionics make them an easy winner. Though it's funny that they're up against the Darkness, one of the few bands that could give them a run for their money in the ham department.

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

All these are okay, but nothing more.

2 | John Kongos | He's Gonna Step on You Again
6 | The Fall | Hip Priest
9 | Billy Murray | You're a Grand Old Rag
15 | Ready For the World | Love You Down
He's Gonna Step On You Again is the clear standout here for me, although Hip Priest is growing on me and You're a Grand Old Rag made me smile. Love You Down is absolutely not my taste.

1 | Sarah McLachlan | Sweet Surrender
5 | 10,000 Maniacs | Hey Jack Kerouac
7 | Badly Drawn Boy | I Need a Sign
16 | David Seville | Witch Doctor
How the **** got Witch Doctor on a list. Easily one of the worst songs on AM. Luckily, the other three make up for it.

3 | Joe South | Don't It Make You Want to Go Home
4 | The Darkness | Get Your Hands Off My Woman
8 | Primal Scream | Shoot Speed/Kill Light
14 | Queen | Flash
The Queen song is just a little too cheesy. The other three are solid, with Joe South being the real standout.
