9825/10000: Semi-finals

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Mar 07, 2018 3:11 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 Grand Final. 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. No repechage at this point, it's win or go home!

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

The 2nd set is really good. You know it's excellent when I'm putting Kendrick at the very bottom.

Better late than never to join...

9996 | Rodriguez | Crucify Your Mind
9861 | Elton John | Levon
9989 | Aretha Franklin | The House that Jack Built
9889 | Laura Nyro & Labelle | The Bells

"Crucify Your Mind" is an amazing song. It is by far my favorite track in any of these groups.

9962 | Massive Attack | Angel
9934 | Björk | Violently Happy
9913 | Kendrick Lamar | Untitled / Untitled 03 | 05.28.2013
9831 | Aaron Neville | Hercules

Nothing in this group was amazing, but all four were solid.

9871 | Creedence Clearwater Revival | Ramble Tamble
9837 | Bernard Herrmann | Vertigo Prelude and Rooftop
9860 | Snowy White | Bird of Paradise
9997 | Jenny Hval | Female Vampire

The top three probably are all great (including new discovery "Bird of Paradise"), but CCR narrowly edges out Herrmann's score (Psycho or Taxi Driver in this spot would have won for me).

9991 | Bob Dylan | Queen Jane Approximately
9929 | Don Fardon | (The Lament of the Cherokee) Indian Reservation
9848 | Bloc Party | The Prayer
9963 | Black Box Recorder | The Facts of Life

Dylan easily wins this group. I had a hard time choosing which song to put at the bottom of this group, because "The Facts of Life" and "The Prayer" were my two least favorite songs of the 16.
