Unacclaimed VI: Heats, Week 6

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Mar 04, 2020 3:04 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.

I'm not the nominator, but I'm Shipping Up to Boston was one of the first songs I ever bought off iTunes when I was younger. Thrilled to see it in contention here!

It looks like Hym's just copied and pasted my post rather than the OP. Unless he meant to replicate my order, in which case I salute his taste, it's just an abstract way to do it.

SCORSESE GROUP

Mariya Takaeuchi- Plastic Love
Dropkick Murphys- I'm Shipping Up to Boston
Malcolm Middleton- Solemn Thirsty
David Bowie- As The World Falls Down

"I'm Shipping Up to Boston" will always be linked to The Departed in my mind, so the Scorsese grouping is very appropriate.
