Controversial lyrics by the way (was criticized at the times), but still a timeless tune.
Suddenly reminding that I made a confusion: the controversial one was "He hit me (and it felt like a kiss)", not "Then he kissed me"

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 4 - Voting Deadline is Friday 7pm - Post 20

Finally sent my votes in.

Analyzing them, I thought about the fact that all three past games have gone to a female singer and asked myself why is that happening and what are the chances of it happening again in this game.

There's a fact, 19 out of 34 songs sent in this game have female singers (considering Dead Can Dance and Mike Oldfield as female singers) (55'8%), 13 have male singers (38,2%) and 2 are male/female duets (5,8%). A fair percentage, but if we look at the final, 14 out of 20 have female singers (70%), 5 have male singers (25%) and 1 is a male/female duet (5%). So, this time it is most likely that we'll have a song with female singer as a winner, though my 12 points this time went to a male singer.

BTW, Susanne Sundfor has grown up on me these days and has received points from me in the final when it hadn't received any points in the Semifinals. Great song!

I've never really thought about it much, but going through my favourite music over the years in my mind I find that a majority of the songs I've listened to a lot have male vocal. But the songs where the vocal has been the most important part has more often had females singing.
