Unacclaimed VI: Semi-finals, Week 2

Post by Bang Jan » Wed Apr 29, 2020 3:07 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.

The top two of each group are fast favourites, really great pop songs. There's a lot of depth in the big instrumental tracks but I just don't connect as easily with them, even if they're a pleasant listen. Might actually rank them all this time too.
