Unacclaimed VI: Semi-finals, Week 1

Post by Bang Jan »

The way this game works is that you will be given two sets of five 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 grand final. 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. Only outright group winners will advance from here, no repechage!

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

Lot of songs here I like but find really slow, GE Days which didn't grab me as much on a relisten, and Oh L'Amour, a certified banger.

Von Spar | V.S.O.P.
Louis Armstrong | We Have All The Time In The World
Jenny Wilson | Forever Is a Long Time
Yamasuki | Aieaoa
The Pale Fountains | Palm of My Hand

Group 2 is very strong, Pale Fountains at the bottom is just bad luck. All great songs in my view. I'm glad I forgot VSOP so I could rediscover it.
