Unacclaimed V: Semi-finals, Week 1

Post by Bang Jan » Wed May 01, 2019 2:17 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 5 points, second gets 4 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. No repechage from here, it's win or go home!

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

Bhundu Boys | Chemedzevana
Jeff Buckley | Forget Her
Lucio Battisti | Anima latina
The Heavy | Short Change Hero
AURORA | Running with the Wolves

All great contenders (I even enjoyed Running with the Wolves more than I initially did during the preliminary rounds), although the masterful jamming of Chemedzevana is a clear winner for me.

Marijata | I Walk Alone
Love | August
The Cookies | I Never Dreamed
Delia Gartrell | See What You Done Done (Hymn No. 9)
Aldous Harding | Elation

It was extremely difficult to pick between Marijata and Love for the first place.

I have no clear opinion about the first group. I was thrilled when I saw that "Anima latina" had been nominated, as I discovered the album of the same name many years ago. But I don't think the title track is as good as the first three songs on the album.

Aldous Harding | Elation
Delia Gartrell | See What You Done Done (Hymn No. 9)
Marijata | I Walk Alone
Love | August
The Cookies | I Never Dreamed

"Elation" really seems like a love it or hate it song.
