6001/6096: Heats, Week 10

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Sep 26, 2018 1:58 pm

The way this game works is that you will be given two 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 to 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 the six highest scoring non-winners in the heat stage (based off point per voter and then percentage of first place votes) will also advance to the semi-finals.

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

6012 | Peter Gabriel | Red Rain

1. No Sleeep
2. Any Way You Want It
3. Help You Ann
4. Red Rain

1. It Only Takes a Minute
2. (There'll Be) Peace in the Valley (For Me)
3. Foule sentimentale
4. Indian Reservation

Nothing I'm too crazy about except my top two in group one. What can I say? I love Janet Jackson and in the right mindset I love Journey.

The real surprise here was Journey not being as good a listen as I remember.

6045 | Alain Souchon | Foule sentimentale
6093 | Paul Revere & The Raiders | Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)
6052 | Tavares | It Only Takes a Minute
6004 | Red Foley | (There’ll Be) Peace in the Valley (For Me)

And everything here surprised me! I like it all!

I'll probably never get what makes Janet Jackson even remotely special, but otherwise this is one of the better line-ups of this game so far.
