2021 AMF Tournament of Champions: Round 9, Part 1 (Current)

Post by Holden »

Hello! Welcome to Round 8 of the 2021 AMF Tournament of Champions! Here are the rules for this game overall, as a refresher:

Each of the 27 competitors submitted one album and ten songs. The ten songs each compete in one of ten rounds, each with a different type of competition. Meanwhile, the albums will be rated (out of ten) as time goes on. After each round, each competitor will receive points based on their performance in the round. At the end of all ten rounds, the points will be totaled from each round and the rating of the album, and a winner will be declared!

This week's rules:
Each part of Round 9 will give you nine songs. These songs have been divided up in categories by how many posts the forumer who submitted them has made. You must rank all nine songs, and the top three scoring from each round move on to a final round. Here are your songs!

Afro B | Drogba (Joanna)
Closer Musik | Giganten
Declan McKenna | Be an Astronaut
Motorcycle | As the Rush Comes
Regina Spektor | You've Got Time
Scott Matthews | Elusive
Tate McRae | Stupid
The Kills | Future Starts Slow
Wendy Carlos | Title Music from A Clockwork Orange

Playlist


Wendy Carlos | Title Music from A Clockwork Orange:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCBwiM3notI

Requested Motorcycle version: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fcJ7zGrClJk

Please rate albums from this list out of ten. You can do this in any order, but please post in the most recent thread!

We've run out of albums, but keep checking out the list and listening and updating your rankings if you'd like!

Alright, in conclusion:
Rank the above nine songs! This will be due one week from the time of this post! (September 27th) Have fun!

Additionally, rate albums from the list out of ten. You can do this at whatever pace you like, but post your ratings in the most recent thread! And you can always rate previously featured albums as well![/b]

1. The Kills | Future Starts Slow
2. Declan McKenna | Be an Astronaut
3. Regina Spektor | You've Got Time
4. Wendy Carlos | Music from A Clockwork Orange
5. Scott Matthews | Elusive
6. Closer Musik | Giganten
7. Motorcycle | As the Rush Comes
8. Tate McRae | Stupid
9. Afro B | Drogba (Joanna)

No offense meant to the nominators, but this was rough. The first three are great, no problem with them. Numbers four and five didn't peak my interest, but are still okay (I love the film A Clockwork Orange, but this track never stood out). But the other four where rather taxing on me. I wasn't in the mood for a nine minute trance track, let alone two of them! But I'll even take those over Stupid and Drogba. Not a great week for me.

Ah, I already was surprised you didn't choose this one. The song goes one place up on my list.
