Unacclaimed V: Heats, Week 8

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Mar 27, 2019 3:44 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.

Not a strong wek for me, all songs could be interchangeable in the ranking. I almost died of having to put Mylène Farmer first :mrgreen:

I couldn't agree more. This has not been the strongest week so far for me also.

Judging from some of the comments, looks like I'm in the minority this week. I thought all the songs were pretty solid (even if "Anima latina" was the only one I can say I loved).

I also think this is a solid week, jamieW!

1. Bhundu Boys | Chemedzevana
3. George | Special Ones
5. Nolan Strong & The Diablos | If I (Could Be With You Tonight)
7. Bedhead | Powder

Especially the first two are great. What's not to like about the jam of Chemedzevana?

GROUP PI
2. Lucio Battisti | Anima latina
4. France Gall | Ella, elle l’a
6. Joachim Witt | Goldener Reiter
8. Mylène Farmer | California

Ella, elle l'a is pretty well-known here and seems to pop up everywhere in the Summer months, although that could also be because of the successful 2008 cover by Kate Ryan. It gets me in a Summer mood, anyway.
