9825/10000: Grand Final

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Mar 14, 2018 3:04 pm

The way this game works is that you will be given a set of four songs, your job is to rank the set from best to worst. First place gets 4 points, second gets 3 etc.

The song with the most points will become the 9825/10000 champion. If there is a tie for points, then the song with more first place votes will win. If they are tied on first place votes as well, there will be a sudden death tiebreak.

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

9837 | Bernard Herrmann | Vertigo Prelude and Rooftop
9861 | Elton John | Levon
9962 | Massive Attack | Angel
9991 | Bob Dylan | Queen Jane Approximately

The first three are all amazing. Wouldn't mind any of them winning, even if Vertigo is a clear favorite as a top 100 song of all time for me. Angel is good too, but not as impressive as the rest. I feel that Massive Attack have done stuff like that not only before, but also better.

To me ”Angel” is a heavy halfway meeting with Depeche Mode, and it really is the best of both worlds. If it wins, it will be a rare occasion where my favourite of the game actually takes it.
