Unacclaimed VI: Heats, Week 9

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Mar 25, 2020 3:05 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.

ROBERT BRESSON GROUP
Tracy Chapman | Material World - we stan an anti-capitalist queen
Billy Talent | Fallen Leaves - Billy Talent needs more recognition outside of Rusted from the Rain :music-rockon:
Bee Gees | Alone - turns out this was number 2 in NZ when I was a kid, so that's how I know it. I like it.
Giants of Jazz Play Brassens | Le temps ne fait rien à l'affaire - like candy floss. Fun but there wasn't much there in the end.

CARL THEODOR DREYER GROUP
Gilligan Moss | Want U So Bad - might be last without the bass. ties the whole thing together really well.
Michael O’Shea | No Journeys End - a magical journey
Patrik Fitzgerald | Safety Pin Stuck In My Heart - acoustic punk? sure, why not!
Popol Vuh | Aguirre I - good but not my thing

Are you sure? The numbers in the Bresson group are out of order of the rankings.
