Yeah, I was kind of expecting that.  :lol
At least I can agree on the top 2, those are 2 awesome songs.

I should be content with pink star and I am but there is something with me in those roulettes, I always send good song but rarely excellent one :lol
Will send something later.

In Evermind's too. Best scored song was the one I sent in first qualification round :facepalm:

Yeah same here, I got a 9 for my qualification song. And then in the actual roulette every score ranged from 7 to 8 apart from the TDH one :lol

Maybe I should just join roulettes for the sole reason of sending The Dear Hunter because on all three occasions I sent them I got either #1 or #2 of the round.

I made people check some of the bands I sent. As long as we're doing that it's cool even though we're not winning :tup

to be fair, i haven't listened to that specific halsey song and it might not be as bad
the lyrics look awful tho tbh
Lyrics generally have to be either horrific or hilarious before I take any notice, or I have to listen to the song 100 times. The lyrics in Colors didn't really register.

Also if that's the same Igorrr song that Sacul sent in my roulette, I thought it was fantastic. I sort of have the same feeling about the electronic stuff, actually, the vocalist was just fantastic enough to really sell it.
I did like her. Maybe if Igorrr has some original tracks that she sings on I would like those, but this kind of electronica where someone just takes another song and puts beats to it doesn't appeal to me at all.


Sorry if I missed it - struggling to keep up with everything while away - but what was this all about?
Nope, never explained, didn't know anyone still cared. :lol I only made it because Elite asked for another blurred image. But these are just artists that are recommended to me by Last.fm.



I've gotten four submissions already, although one has been asked to resubmit. Two of the four submissions are from soundtracks, so I guess seneca's recent success has inspired some of you. :justjen

Actually, it has nothing to do with Seneca's result :lol I almost sent same song in last round.

I'm pleasantly surprised, but you hinted at why I sent you the song in your write up. This song isn't one of my favorites either (I mean I like it but not as much as other synthy stuff I've sent you), but it has the same kind of vibe as Style by Taylor Swift with a touch of Lorde quirky vocal timbre so I'm like what the hey I'll try it. Glad you liked it.

I'll send round 8 and post my roulette intro rather shortly. I literally just got up and I'm not sure I'm staying up yet (I may go back to sleep... It's only 7am) :lol
I don’t know what to put here anymore

Would you be ok with me sending you an MP3 the final round? The song I want to send isn't available on Spotify or YouTube.

It reminded me of something else actually...I might send it to you if you don't know it.

The standings at the moment are very interesting...take my word for it.

(diamond + pink) vs 2 Silver is the main issue for first place.  Not to mention that Ruslan is has a pearl in 4-person bonus category vs Brent has it against 3 others.

For 3rd place, it's a matter of (gold + silver) vs 4 Pink ... Elite vs me.  I have 2 pearls in 3-person bonus categories though, so that makes me think I might be in 3rd place alone.  In either case, I'm happy with my song choices.

I'm really glad to see that no one got 3 coal stars. I think it would've been a drag to get the boots mid-way through the competition - if I'd have done that in mine, Dave not have made it to the final round!   :biggrin:

Gotta decide if I want to send a multi-vocalist song, or a ballad.  hhhhmmmm....  Who to take a notch out of??

Might want to check if you can beat either song at all, first. :P

You evil, evil man. Actually I went with something quite risky since a third coal star doesn't affect me as much in this last round, I'm ranked near the bottom anyways. Doesn't mean my song isn't fucking awesome though.

Hard to say whether this is even possible, there's just too many moving parts and I don't even know which bonus stars the people who haven't sent yet will want. I wouldn't rule the possibility out.

So, Taro wasn't good enough to steal Evermind's pearl star? That's a shame, though I'm glad I got the gold one at least.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

It was a close call, and I just realised that I didn't update the sapphire standings (you were supposed to be between Evermind and seneca, not below seneca). Like I said, it was a grower. I've fixed that now.

Ok, the great thing about having zero chances of winning is that I can take a risk I normally really wouldn't.

Okay, I think my song is going to be the case of "go big or go home" approach. It will probably be my downfall too, but for once in this roulette, I'm sending something I actually love and not just like or appreciate. Originally I wanted to send that Joan Baez song I sent in the Championship, but screw that, you'll get one of my favourite songs of all time, and pre-70s to boot. 1969 to be exact. Whoever has that pearl star in pre-80s category, watch out...

So have you already decided if my song counts towards a bonus star or do I go home with only the aquamarine one? :sadpanda:

You can have the star you asked for.

Speaking of which, all of your submissions are locked in now, so here's the last batch of bonus stars being awarded: One each of ruby, sapphire, and emerald, along with two amethyst.



And the blur





Let's play a game. Three people who are participating can each post a single number between 1 and 20. If the numbers chosen match the point values of any stars, I will reveal to you which ones. :o
