9825/10000: Round 2, Week 1

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Feb 07, 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 semi-finals. 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 much like in 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 semi-finals.

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

(Agree with the critics ranking)

The last group is brutal, I'm going to have to think about those a bit. Whatever there will be a great song at #4.

Let me echo the sentiments that this an improvement over the first round. Without the novelties, forgotten hit songs and second-tier album tracks we get a very enjoyable playlist.

3 | Creedence Clearwater Revival | Ramble Tamble
4 | Gil Scott-Heron | "B" Movie
13 | Tracey Ullman | They Don't Know
15 | Demi Lovato | Cool for the Summer

1 | Elton John | Levon
2 | Linda Ronstadt | When Will I Be Loved
7 | 10,000 Maniacs | Hey Jack Kerouac
8 | John Kongos | He's Gonna Step on You Again
Very, very good group. Wouldn't mind any of them to proceed.

6 | Peter Tosh | Equal Rights
11 | Rodriguez | Crucify Your Mind
14 | P!nk | Just Like a Pill
16 | Prince | I Wish U Heaven

5 | Eric Bogle | And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda

Funny how we both comment on the overall improvement when we have such diametrical opinions.
