Unacclaimed IV FINAL FOUR

Post by whuntva » Mon Jan 23, 2017 2:26 am

Here we go into what is being called the best Final Four in Unacclaimed history!

All four of these songs won decisively last week, so it seems as though destiny sent them here. All four of them are worthy winners. And for the first time, there are TWO songs that lost their groups playing here. And they are playing each other no less! But only one lost their group to another semifinalist.

Here, votes are worth only one point. Pick the song from each pairing you want to see advance. Ties broken now by sudden-death overtime.

We're all caught up now. Every round from here on out need only cross ONE week!

Voting for this round ends 1/29 at 11:59 pm..


Amadou & Mariam-Je Pense a Toi vs. Mylene Farmer-Sans Logique

The Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera vs. Laura Viers-July Flame


Let's continue the widest open Unacclaimed ever!

These were hard.

I'll go with Amadou and Miriam and Laura Viers. Though both matches were highly contested.

Let's try to hit 20 votes!!! Feel free to vote!


1 | Laura Viers - July Flame ----- one plus: it's in English. another plus: it's a very well-written tune.
2 | Amadou & Mariam - Je Pense a Toi ----- hits all the right notes, I wouldn't change anything about it.
3 | Mylene Farmer - Sans Logique ----- the coolest sounds of the bunch here, but there are some flaws.
4 | The Cinematic Orchestra - Man with the Movie Camera ----- I'm starting to appreciate the drumming, but overall still think it's just alright.

Edit: Now I want Laura to win...

Best Unacclaimed Final Four? It might be. This is a great collection of songs. I'd have to play the songs from the other tournaments to gauge that, but that will come with the upcoming Unacclaimed Poll. :mrgreen:

As for me, as great as these songs are as a collective, I have a clear hierarchy:

Mylene Farmer - "Sans Logique": 10

I can't live without this song. I am in Montpellier, France now and have gone on a Mylene purchasing binge, as evidenced in the attached photo. I found a place that is selling a used copy of the 12" of "Sans Logique" for 35 euros. I have a daily allowance while I am here of 32.30 euros for food and whatever else I need to spend while I am here. I am seriously contemplating skipping a day of food to purchase "Sans Logique". That's right - this song is so good that I am prepared to starve for it. Somehow, the subject of the song makes that seem sort of appropriate. :D

Laura Viers - "July Flame": 9

I love this song! One of the best discoveries of the game, and it hasn't come close to getting old. This is why I love this game - it introduces me to such wonderful music of which I would have otherwise been completely unaware.

Amadou and Mariam - "Je pense a toi": 8

I REALLY like this song. The strings are a great touch! It looks like it will steamroll to the final, but I'm giddy that "Sans Logique" made it this far.

The Cinematic Orchestra - "Man With the Movie Camera": 7

I'm waiting for the moment when this song becomes a titan for me, other than being merely good. I wouldn't rule it out, but for now, it will settle for 4th place in a great collection of songs.

Wow! Ten votes and its already Monday.

Like last round, there are clear frontrunners in all matches. But it's still early so a lot can happen.

Amadou & Mariam-Je Pense a Toi My favorite since the beginning...great great song.

The Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera A good song but not on the same level of Je pense à toi.

Amadou & Mariam-Je Pense a Toi 9
Mylene Farmer-Sans Logique 9
So very, very close...

The Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera 10
Laura Viers-July Flame 8
Not close at all for me (and I love "July Flame").

So, it's been a Mylène filled weekend here in Montpellier so far.

Last night, some friends and I went out for karaoke. :whistle: We were the only ones requesting songs, so got a lot of opportunities to sing. At one point, the guy running the karaoke even put on a song for me to sing that I hadn't requested!

Among the songs I sang was my first attempt at singing in French, of course to Mylène. I wanted to sing "Sans logique", but they didn't have it among their fairly limited selection, so I went with another great song of hers called "Sans contrefaçon" instead:

https://www.facebook.com/ian.renner.756 ... 806960113/

This morning, I wandered to the record store that had the 12" of "Sans logique" and I bought that sucker like it was GOLD. One of my friends invited me to brunch tomorrow, so I won't have to starve for it after all!

LAST CALL TO VOTE!!

I find it odd how the deeper we go, the more decisive the results become. I thought with such rich talent and what was top to bottom the best Unacclaimed pool ever IMO, we still had two routs this week.

Amadou & Mariam-Je Pense a Toi vs. Mylene Farmer-Sans Logique
Amadou & Mariam is great, but "Sans logique" is too lovely to deny.

The Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera vs. Laura Viers-July Flame
Also a tough decision.

Amadou and Mariam-Je Pense a Toi 11
Mylene Farmer-Sans Logique 6

Mylene began to cut it close late, but Amadou and Mariam could not be caught. The lead they built during the week was too great.

Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera 5
Laura Viers-July Flame 12

Laura was in the lead throughout. She ended up winning in much stronger fashion and never relented her strong lead.


So now we have a great final awaiting us.
