Post by Holden » Wed Aug 05, 2020 2:01 am

We have successfully cut our list down to 100 songs from the 200. For each round of the tournament, I am going to implement a different style. Now, we are going to be getting this list of 100 down to 32. We will be doing this using lists of five songs, which must be ranked, and the highest average positions will move on. Here are this weeks two sets of songs to be ranked.
