Re: My pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will disprove your faith in man.
Game 182 was All About Electronic, which I guess in hindsight was basically the same theme as the very second game I played, #78 "It's Electric". (No lie, I almost sent Debbie Gibson's "Electric Youth" for that game, just for the lolz.) In another moment of insanity, I thought I could change some hearts and minds (note to self: not everyone is as open-minded as you are so stop wasting your time, energy, and efforts trying to get folks to see the errors in their ways and try to bring about a positive change for them because they are set in said ways and don't gaf about changing or growing, even if their behavior is hurtful and/or demeaning) with my selection here. But let's be real here, I knew before I even hit submit on the PM to AdeyC that this was another lamb being sent to the slaughterhouse.
The Chainsmokers are pretty-much universally despised by music snobs. Even I have a real distaste for a lot of their songs, especially that dreadful duet with Halsey that was all over the radio around this time when I had my mom's car before it broke down on me. (One of my favorite things is reading YouTube comments because people can be *brutal*, but often in a hilarious way. Halsey and the Chainsmokers dude sang Closer live at some awards show and the clowning in the comments was just TOO funny!! )
But obviously I feel different about "Roses", just as a pure tune. I'm pretty sure this was their first big song, and it's also the best one of theirs I've heard by far. I actually wasn't familiar with it until someone sang it on "The Voice", and I didn't particularly enjoy her rendition as I remember . But it was enough to enter my sphere of recognition and I was able to research and follow-up on it later for moments such as this!
I maybe could have come up with something better or more original for this theme, but this particular song seemed to perfectly suit the theme of electronic music to me. Katy B is always singing about some beats dropping and Roses has this in SPADES. Not sure how many dancers there are among the BSG constituency, but it's a great song to just bop along to as well. I wanted to change some minds and show that even "crap" artists are capable of a decent song from time to time.
But my plan didn't work, obviously. You don't have to be Nancy Drew to realize that this was deemed TRASH by the esteemed community and finished TWENTIETH in its SF. That means it was a pretty large game and it finished dead last or damn near. Not such a surprising or upsetting result because it was expected but DAMN..
