Javi:
Everytime I see a Jeff Buckley song nominated in one of these games I realize how underrated he was. He was much more than his (outstanding) Halleluyah cover. All his Grace album is glorious and I wish there would be today more artist like him or Kurt Cobain.

Melange:
I dont get the hype/nickdrake. He is okay but not anymore outstanding than some other acts in that style. The media likes singers who die mysteriously when they are young and pretty. If they choked on their own vomit during a binge, thats even better.

Hugues Daniel:
Jeff Buckley reminds me a awful lot of his father (Tim). That voice... I like the way Jeff, like his father, shared his taste for freedom. It's a very Californian thing to me; Jeff Buckley has something particularly remarkable about his music, by the way he's deeply involved in it, and his vocals aren't histrionic, but adventurous, always in the search of the truth of feelings. The singer of Muse is histrionic, not Jeff Buckley. Jeff always cared a lot of being true, essentially true and nothing else. But being true doesn't mean being simple for that matter. To the contrary, you can look for different ways of being true. He's not the only one artist of being that way, but he certainly had a beautiful voice that he used like an instrument. Among the male artists possessed of a great voice, he is among the best ones of the two last decades in my opinion. The fact he died too soon was essentially a big damage for the art.

^bibi^:
And of course anything Jeff Buckley touches is pure gold to my ears.

Oh, and amazing that we had to wait the sixteenth game to finally have a Rolling Stones song, no? Well, good old times aren't what they used to be! After all we didn't have Elvis either At least it's a surprising pick for the Stones one!

Joe Cocker >>>>> The Beatles; I hope my song, Joe Cocker or RunDMC win it.

Hugues Daniel
A contender for the best cover ever, seriously. I mean, forget the Beatles original! This is an hymn, a soul masterpiece, an epic anthem of the sixties, it has everything. You can count them on your ten fingers (unless you have more than ten fingers, then you may not be from the Earth, you never know, on the net!) (anyway that's a song for the Universe!)

I am okay with any of the covers (winning) between Cocker, Adele, Gonzalez

I can officially take it out of my "songs to enter" list, but s I said, i'm happy it was in the game, I love every little thing about that song, icluding the fact that it pisses off my BF each time it plays on the radio and I forbid him to change

zvonarevarulz:
Really quite nice. A pleasant surprise. Unique vocals, quite lovely. A fun tune, I rather like it.

it-girl:
This is an energetic song that I really, really like.

Shvedbarilescu:
I remember back when Come On Eileen came out. I was blown away. It was like nothing else that was currently on the airwaves and like nothing else I had heard before. Sure, one could hear the song's influences but here was a song that was somehow greater than the sum of all of its influences. And then against all odds it became a hit. Not just in the UK but in the fucking US where tastes were so conservative it was really depressing. And not only did it become a hit single, it actually got to number one … on the US charts. This really was cause for celebration and I still remember the triumph I felt at seeing something not just good but actually great to get to number 1; 32 years later, I think one can still make a case that Come On Eileen is the greatest global #1 of the past 35 years. It is a song that still sounds like nothing else, and really, how many number one singles can one say that about. It is a song that as great as it was as it came out has still aged more than gracefully. It really is a song that it is hard to imagine anyone else not liking and there aren't many of those.

It's just something about the lead singer's voice I just don't like. Could not get into this song no matter how hard I tried.

I hate how upbeat the instrumentals are compared to the lyrics. The lyrics are based on a boy who shot himself in English class. But, still a very good song.

^bibi^:
I guess that's a bit too much Pearl Jam at a time. I'll probably have to listen to these again in order to vote. I'd say Alive remained my favorite of the three songs.

SF 2 sure begins on a high! I don't like this quite as much as the first two but still like it. I just read Matt Corby was a former Australian Idol contestant. Don't like those shows much, but he used the exposure in a good way and made something mature and personal. Well done.\

Silent Bird:
Yes

^bibi^:
I didn't dislike it completely, but there is something bothering me in this song, but right now I couldn't say what exactly. Will require further listens.

sfar:


Shvedbarilescu:
Hmmm….well, this very much sounds like someone who is trying very hard to prove their artistic credibility. Thing is it does still sound compromised and listening to this I get a picture of a guy who is walking a tightrope trying to keep his label happy while showing the world or at least Australia that he has genuine talent. Not easy but I do think he just about pulls it off. So credit to him for that. Honestly I didn’t really go for this one although it’s not bad.

I respect this choice as in every instrumental choice 'cause most of the time they're risky. I listened to it a couple of times and I don't think it's quite going to sink in as much as I'd like it to. That said, I can see it's good for the style of music it is and I hope it finds an audience here.

salmon pants:
Pretty. Felt a little too "scorey" to me, as if it was scoring a particular scene, rather than being a song to listen to on its own.

^bibi^:
This is totally wasted on me. Not good enough to be classical music as I like it. Reminded me a bit of Rondo Veniziano… I do like the word Penguin in the title

James:
The image of dancing penguins made me smile, but this is a serious track of course. One that brings about images of gentle streams flowing through mountains. And images of points given out.

Shvedbarilescu:
SilvePersian's Nigel Westlake selection was another original and brave selection that I really enjoyed also. Even though I do not like classical music generally, this recording showing how full of ideas and surprise modern classical music can be. It was a real eye opener.

Re: SilverPersian's Song History

Just wanted to mention, that of the games we played together, I have had given you at least a point to each of your song thus far. Keep nominating such wonderful songs because it seems that it is guaranteed that I am most likely going to give you points for them.

Edit: Just as I said this.

Pops Maellard:
Heather Small's voice gets a lot of shit but I don't mind it - it's totally unique to her. The song was OK, but I'm complimenting the voice mostly.

^bibi^:
My first thought was "OMG she sounds so much like the singer of M People". Then I read wikipedia. This is quite random to have her twice in the same game I must say. Again i like her voice (I have a thing for warm deep woman voice, don't start analyzing this please ). The song as OK but not my favorite outside of Heather's voice. | What Does This Song Inspire Me This tends so much toward gospel that it would be something with going to church. Though I don't think any song will ever make me go there

James:
Thank goodness this song followed the Shakira debacle, so I kept the desire to go on. Heather Small’s rich voice is a joy to listen to, more so in her solo efforts than with M People. I seriously wondered what made me feel proud today. Well, I completed this review, otherwise my life is apparently quite dull. But I love Heather. And the person nominating should certainly feel proud.

salmon pants:
This sort of melisma induced forced sentiment, usually is my soft spot. I like rich toned, deep voiced black singers usually, but her voice is too, throaty to me. Just too much stuck in the throat, which is a personal problem of mine, that rings true to my heart. It's such a defacto inspirational song, that I almost hate it for the lack of effort in the thought of the submission. Such a safe choice. It inspired me to do very bad things tonight

Mike.:

zvonareviarulz:
This is not something I would typically enjoy. However, something about his voice and the song itself touched me. His voice has got a nice subtle rasp that isn't overpowering. Lovely.

Javi.:
I also loved Truly and Waves but this second SF was weaker imo

Pops Maellard:
Damn...this is good but about halfway through I wanted it to go somewhere, move to the next level I guess. Acoustic-guitar only songs are 'truly' risky (sorry, that was so unfunny )

salmon pants:
My very good friend has just graduated from college, and although I can't be at her graduation party this year, I've been thinking about a gift or something for Kate. This was a string of live music, and for me, someone who rarely goes to concerts, and listens to such manufactured pop I was growing QUITE tired of it. He's got a kind of cool deep voice, I guess. It was a little to menacing, and aggressive in tone to me though. I don't know if it wasn't the timing of when I listened to this, I sort of got a real ominous vibe to this song, it just reminded me of Elliot Rodger who shot up UCSB, it was hard for me to get past that, cos it was the image in my mind.
