Unacclaimed V: Grand Final

Post by Bang Jan » Wed May 22, 2019 2:04 pm

The way this game works is that you will be given a set of six songs, your job is to rank the set from best to worst. First place gets 6 points, second gets 5 etc.

The song with the most points will become the Unacclaimed V champion. If there is a tie for points, then the song with more first place votes will win. If they are tied on first place votes as well, there will be a sudden death tiebreak.

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

Jeff Buckley | Forget Her
Delia Gartrell | See What You Done Done (Hymn No. 9)
Fishmans | Walking in the Rhythm

6 | Jenny Wilson | Pyramids (Rose Out of Our Pain) | 2013

None of these songs were #1 for me on the first and second round. Anyway it's a great group of songs, deserving to be on the final.

I don't care much about the Jeff Buckley track, but the other five are great and were hard to rank.

Excellent final group of songs and also sort of unexpected-there were some picks during the preliminary rounds which seemed like more obvious finalist material, not in terms of quality but more like in terms of general appeal. Ranking the Fishmans-Jeff Buckley-Delia Gartrell triad was especially hard.

This has been a truly great game. Thanks Bang Jan!

A very interesting lineup in the final...that ended up in a blowout victory. It will be interesting to see if to what extent Toccata will compete with wellknown acclaimed songs in future polls.

I fell off the game because of switching jobs. Shame, because I liked this field and wanted to play more.

"Toccata" was a worthy winner and I am glad you all had fun.

Tocatta is almost a stealth winner. I felt like Jenny Wilson, Fishmans and Delia Gartrell had more talk about them, which made them seem more likely victors.
