Unacclaimed VI: Semi-finals, Week 3

Post by Bang Jan » Wed May 06, 2020 3:16 pm

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.

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

Group 1 is way too solid, I like every track in it. 2 is ok, but as you can probably tell from my votes I'm usually not too into long instrumental tracks.
