Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 163: The World Cup of Music

My Song: Ruth Jacott - Vrede



Reason to pick the song: For each FIFA region, Tennisfan102 specified rules of what could be selected. I wanted to go for my own region UEFA (although I contemplated to send a Tragically Hip song for CONCACAF) and then I had the choice between a Eurovision song, an Opera song, a classical song, a Welsh song or a song in Balkan language I chose for a Eurovision song that came to mind immediately, an old fav of me that I didn't hear for a long time. I must say I wasn't impressed when I heard it again lol. Sent it anyway, which was a mistake.

Semi-final result: 13th

12: AdeyC, Queen Vika
8: TIEFSEE
7: Adam, John.
6: DJDVD, Wally.
5: Litotes
3: Avada Kedavra!, Monzanator, Poldo
2: fufuqifuqishahah, zvonarevarulz
1: SRB Analyst

Comments

DJDVD: Ruth Jacott.. of all Dutch artists, I never would've expected this to be nominated
Poldo: This really has to be the very first time I'm listening to a Dutch song This is peak ESC trash somehow but I must say that this is not too bad and I must say that I also enjoyed a typical pop song after all these traditional entries
Matmagix: Eurovision track, I'm not completely sure what I think of this. The chorus is a bit heavy and out of nowhere.

Conclusion: Well expected to be out in SF. Some good things though: two 12s and high points from TIEFSEE

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 164: Post 2010 Pop

My Song: Kendrick Lamar - King Kunta



Reason to pick the song: We needed to pick a song that features in top 40 of US, UK of Aussie main hit lists. Hard theme for me as I never ever listen to pop music. First thing I did was go over all number ones from 2010 onwards in all these lists. Didn't know most of the songs and didn't like the few ones I heard before. 'King' from Years&Years came to mind, but alas, that had already been chosen before. Finally I remembered King Kunta being all over the radio a couple of years ago. I thought it would have been number 1 in all kind of lists, but it was barely eligible lol (barely top 40 in the Aussie hit list, didn't even enter top 40 of the other two). Sent it anyway because I couldn't think of another song.

Semi-final result: 6th

12: Adam, Beat, Tennisfan102
10: drg, eck, Matmagix, Queen Vika, SilverPersian
8: histery, Leif
7: AdeyC
6: ArturJFC
5: Big~Banana, Cesare Borgia
4: Wally.
2: Randy
1: The Walking Bye

Final result: 11th

12: TennisFan102, Adam
10: Milan., SilverPersian
7: drg
6: ArturJFC, Cesare Borgia, Matmagix
5: Queen Vika, histery
4: AdeyC, DJDVD
3: Randy

Comments

Adam: Kendrick Lamar, Clean Bandit, Disclosure, Duke Dumont, Kelis
Randy: King Kunta , acapella, do what u want and hold my hand only 4 keepers from SF1, rest are trash
Serg.: 0/10 doesn't belong in this game
Queen Vika: Beyonce should take notes, this was a revoltionary album that detailed the lives of a black american. I'm not usually into hip hop, but it's a worthy throwback to a better and old style of rap.
Matmagix: wow, ok. it doesn't hold anything back. Very distinct and heavy vocal delivery. I have to admit this flows extremely well, there is very little in the way of wasted notes or energy and there is also enough variety that develops subtly. This is probably the most surprising discovery for me so far.
Avada Kedavra!: I just don’t understand this type of rap. I’ve heard club versions of this song which I like and this is one of his better songs but I prefer this song in the club.
SRB Analyst: King Kunta is trash of its genre. Sorry.
To which Randy responded: Are you serious.....
Beat also came to my defense: IKR. "king kunta" is one of the best hip hop songs in recent memory.
And Wally: King Kunta is the bomb, as is Kendrick Lamar. (Although he was looking a bit busted in the video )
But SRB Analyst had the last word: Yes, I am serious, he was never likeable to me, and this song is just... horrendous, IMHO.

Conclusion: I actually follow Serg.'s assessment that this song doesn't really belong in this game. It is just not generic enough for this game. Glad some liked it and I actually let Matt discover this song. Too bad I barely missed out on top 10 (@Beat) but oh well...
Beat and SilverPersian like this.

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 165: Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll

My Song: Lords of Acid - I Sit on Acid



Reason to pick the song: We needed to pick a song that's about sex, drugs or R&R. I thought of this song right away, because it's right in your face ('acid', the opening sentence 'Darling, come here, fuck me up...') but it's also a tad confusing (is it about drugs? Sex? Both? ...). Plus, it is a dancefloor classic and I can really go all out on this song. They are a terrible live band though

Semi-Final result: 7th

12: Litotes
10 ArturJFC, fufuqifuqishahah

Comments

Adam: The best immediate impression I got from a new artist was from Lords of Acid. It’s pretty reminiscent of early The Prodigy and Ministry. The sound is pretty harsh but that's what you got with industrial music and I love it. There’s also a really cool remix version of this track on Spotify which sounds a lot like early Chemical Brothers. Thanks to the sender for this one
Leif: A lot of new discoveries mostly in SF2. Big highlights for me with I Sit On Acid and The Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let's Do It), both crudely my type of humor.

Conclusion: this song was a bit of a gamble, so I'm glad it did fairly well. It's always nice to get appreciation for a song that you know is unknown to most players. Put it on again, people, crank the volume up, and dance (or have sex obviously)!

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 166: Urban Hymns

My Song: Santigold feat. ILoveMakonnen - Who Be Lovin' Me



Reason to pick the song: R&B, Soul, Rap and Hip Hop songs were allowed in this game. Not my cup of tea at all. I wanted to send an ILoveMakonnen song, cause I find him intriguiging at least. Didn't find a good youtube one, but stumbled on this song. I love Santigold as well, but more her early stuff. This is an okay song, but nothing earth shocking. Since I could not think of anything else (I already sent the only Kendrick Lemar song I know in the pop game ) I sent it.

Comments

JMG: ILoveMakonnen seems to be everywhere nowadays. Harmless, a bit childish song. It is listenable maybe once or twice.
Matmagix: that vocals and the monotonous rhythm is incredibly drony and sleep inducing. Let's not start on the lyrics, You have to be drunk to remotely enjoy this though the female vocal somewhat saves this. Verdict: URBAN next
N.M.: who be lovin' me is stuck in my head all day
actually i liked that song

Conclusion: final wasn't high quality imo, so disappointed with the result. However, I'm not too keen on the song myself, so whatever.

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 167: Active Artists

My song: He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilote



Reason to pick the song: JMG asked for a song from an artist/band that is active, either by playing concerts or having new work out the last year. Grandaddy is a famous indie band from the nineties/noughties that just had a new album out and played some concerts, so it was perfect. This song is one of their most famous songs and is a highlights at gigs, so it was a natural choice for me. It's a beautiful spun out song with the characteristic voice of Jason Lythe. Brilliant.

2: Avada Kedavra!, Litotes, Matmagix

Comments

Matmagix: Grandaddy - He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot - 8 mins long, great intro, and the thematic changes are nice and remind me of my love for these mini operettas/musical 'plays', but after the first 4 minutes, it starts to become a little uninspired and monotonous, sadly. Even adding something out of prog rock would have been helpful in the ensuing 3 minutes because absolutely nothing develops during this segment.
Serg.: Ugh this is just too long and monotone. If it had female voice maybe I'd enjoy it more

Conclusion: Very disappointing result for a song I absolutely adore. Serg.'s last sentence sums up quite well the difference between my taste and that of the pop loving posters that populate this game in this phase.

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 168: Song with a Story

My Song: London after Midnight - Sacrifice



Reason to Pick the Song: I wanted a London after Midnight song because of the story. Here's what I answered to Adey's question to this: "It's more a story behind the band. In the 90s there was a small goth festival in my home town and a mate asked me if I'd like to come. He knew this 1 song from London after Midnight and I didn't know any of the bands playing (I was a good boy, listening to Roxette and the likes). We went and with every band coming on stage I was asking him "What band is this? Is this London after Midnight?" and he was like "err yeah maybe, I dunno...." (this was before streaming, youtube and spotify obviously ). I went home not knowing which bands I had seen but I was sold. I apparently loved goth music. Many years later, when I was very familiar with the band, we went again to one of their gigs. My mate (the same one) bought tickets beforehand, only, apparently he forgot to pay for them so when we arrived to the gig we weren't on the list and the gig was soldout. I would have thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm sure, but it wasn't to be. Oh, I'm still friends with that guy, in case you were wondering." Actually, another song of LaM is my favourite: Your best Nightmare, but I assumed people would think I'm a freak if that's my 'song with a story'. Look up the lyrics!

Comments

Matmagix: Sacrifice gives me Peter Murphy vibes

Conclusion: After my Warm Leatherette and Sopor Aeternus disasters, I'm glad I got a decent result with this goth song. Probably because it's easier on the ears, but still...

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 169: Open Game

My Song: Elliott Smith - Twilight



Reason to Pick the Song: I absolutely love Elliott Smith's music. This is such a fragile little song, very typical of Elliott. And the ambiguity of the song (it sounds like he talks about a girl but he's probably talking about heroine) and Elliott's death makes this a song to just listen to and be quiet. I love 'Fond farewell to a Friend' maybe a bit more, but that one was already picked before.

Semi-Final Result: 14th

Comments

Perun: composition like in Elliott Smith - Twilight is certainly not my type of thing

Conclusion: I don't get BSG sometimes. Really thought this would do better, even in the current era. Back to the goth stuff then, eh?

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 170: Give Me Some Attitude

My Song: Thee Silver Mount Zion - Fuck Off Get Free



Reason to Pick the Song: This is attitude to me. Thee Silver Mount Zion has a great 'Je m'en fous' attitude, which they not only bring into their great songs, but also on stage (they are placed in a circle, some of the band members almost with their backs to the audience), in their band names (they change a lot to all kinds of strange band names) and in their daily life. So it's not this typical on stage 'attitude' of modern divas, which I do not like at all, but a genuine kind of attitude.

Semi-Final Result: 16th

12: histery, SilverPersian
7: Matmagix, Perun
6: TennisFan102
5: Adam
3: AdeyC, Randy
2: fufuqifuqishahah
1: Serg.

Comments

SRB Analyst: The name of this song describes the attitude
histery: Among the steaming pile of @#$% that is SF1, I still managed to find a gem; can anyone guess what it is? (note: I'm gonna pretend that was about my song, seeing histery gave me 12 points)
Randy: Attitude : 8/10
Leif: Overall most of the male vocals lost out on attitude ala Call On Me and Fuck Off Get Free.

Conclusion: Contrary to the previous game, I didn't expect to qualify here. It is not the easiest music, so I think it wouldn't have qualified in the more indie BSG eras either. I just hope that some players got to know a good band!

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 171: GRAMMY Nominated

My Song: Fine Young Cannibals - She Drives Me Crazy



Reason to Pick the Song: this is so not my category: songs that are popular enough to be nominated for a prize. I went through the list and found that this song was nominated. I always liked Fine Young Cannibals and although I see this song's appeal, I like other songs of them better (Johnny is a fantastic song). But hey, it's not like there was something else that even came close (well an even older song did, maybe I should have picked that one).

Semi-Final Result: 11th

10: Queen Vika
8: Monzanator, Tennisfan102
7: AdeyC, DJDVD
6: John., Litotes, SilverPersian
5: Lazar., SRB Analyst
4: Adam, Randy
3: Leif, Wozzy!
2: fufuqifuqishahah
1: Avada Kedavra!, king vulture, salmon pants., Wally.

Comments

Queen Vika: Best Rock Recording: She Drives Me Crazy- Fine Young Cannibals
Adam: ... but it's a bit more disappointing when Foster The People's track made it ahead of She Drives Me Crazy because one is a relatively boring, safe song and the other is a lot more fun. If there was only one male band that deserved to make the final, it wasn't Foster the People and I say that as someone who doesn't mind their music.
Matmagix: I'll have to admit I didn't vote for She Drives Me Crazy because of overfamiliarity. It's weird but every time I hear it I'm over the song. I guess it drives me crazy. However this round I blame a very packed semi final. Already two Madge, a Gaga and Britney song occupying 4 spots. So it was gonna be cutthroat no matter what.

Conslusion: Another final not made. Enough people voted for my song, just not enough high points. The lack of comments on my song says it all really: most players went (edit: Adam and Matt commented after the SF scores were revealed) I have no idea what to do at this point to score top 10s again (it has been awhile since my rocket start in this game).

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Re: The Crow's Song History

You've done a very good impression of me in terms of types of picks and often low rewards.

While your songs are typically hit and miss on my radar (I tend to give you medium high pts, or none at all), I appreciate the versatility you are bringing to the game. SRB Analyst introduced me to Elliot Smith's "King's Crossing" and I immediately took to it.

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 172: 172 Seconds or Less

My Song: Violent Femmes - Blister in the Sun



Reason to Pick the Song: when I saw the theme I knew I was going to send a punk/new wave/... song since there are a lot of short explosive gems in that music. In the end, I went for a song that I didn't know very well from a band I primarily got to know through a song on the The Crow soundtrack. I didn't regret it for a second because I liked it more and more with more listens (well some really like it after 1 listen and hate it after two listens apparently ). It is so catchy, so well-constructed and so raw at the same time.

Comments

The Crow: The Doors song picks up perfectly where the Violent Femmes song left off. The start melodies are exactly the same (until Jim starts singing).

Conclusion: It was a strong game imo, so 13th is an ok result I guess. I was leading after 6 votes but then got 15 zeroes in a row Also a bit odd: I expected points (in final) from Tennisfan102 and Cesare Borgia; on the other hand I didn't expect high points from Queen Vika or Owl-on-Speed Oh well, that's the fun of BSG!

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 173: Better Than The Original

My Song: T.V. Carpio - I Wanna Hold Your Hand



Reason to pick the song: the idea was to send a cover that you think is better than the original. I had some ideas (Sisters of Mercy have made covers of Comfortably Numb and of Gimme Shelter; there are some very good covers of The Cure's Lovesong by Bat for Lashes and Tori Amos, ...). However, I like the original versions of all these songs. And then this song from a mixed cd from a friend of mine came to mind and I knew I told her "You made me like a Beatles song! "

Comments

TIEFSEE: LMAO WHO SENT T V CARPIO
Silent Bird: jfkhgiwhegfadgkadkgn
Monzanator: I guess we're done with the good songs in this semi
Mauriac: x2
Matmagix: And now I Want To Hold Your Hand... I never was into McCartney's boyish fantasies (one should peruse the catalogue, I like "Yesterday" but a lot of his other songs are somewhat childish to me). So for me this cover didn't have much to play with, and is trying to bite a bit more than can be chewed.
Perun: The song is pretty good but that cover is just so ... unremarkable.

Conclusion: I thought I had a shot pleasing a lot of people with this one, but first comments crushed my hope immediately I WILL figure you out, BSG!!

Looking back, both She Drives Me Crazy and Blister in the sun should've been top 10, even top 5. Heck, they were both better than the winning song

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 174: History in Songs

My song: Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Maid of Orleans



Reason to Pick the song: we needed to pick a song that was related to a historical event. OMD sings about Jeanne d'Arc. I remembered the video clip very good from my child hood and was always mesmerized by it (I had no real clue about the historical context). It was the only song that came to mind directly when seeing the theme and it suited perfectly. So why not?

Semi-final Result: 15th

12: Beat, Monzanator
10: AdeyC
8: Litotes, Northstar
6: Mauriac
5: histery
3: Milan.
2: John., Leif
1: danyal123, Marucic., Shvedbarilescu

Comments

Silent Bird: Gee, who the fuck listens to OMD. That's where I draw the Mason-Dixon line.
The Crow: I guess OMD's Enola Gay was sent before?
Litotes answered: Indeed. It was nominated already in game 8, by Fantasy Hero. It didn't make the final, despite getting my 12. Then it was nominated again in game 81, which was a "2nd chances" game for songs that didn't reach the final first time out, this time by Adey. It didn't make the final then either, despite getting my 12.
The Crow saw it coming: Ouch for the sender of the current song then. I would say Enola Gay is easily the more famous of the two.
Silent Bird obviously had to pitch in: Why is this person so proud of giving Ebola Gay 12 points TWICE?
To which my hero AdeyC dryly replied: Because it's a good song.
Northstar: OMD also has another famous historic song "If You Leave" which was about the Brexit

Conclusion: I was disappointed not to get into the final, because I thought OMD's poppy enough. But if Enola Gay can't even get into the final.... Nice surprise: Beat's 12. Never imagined he'd like this kind of song.
Beat and Silent Bird like this.

Re: The Crow's Song History

Game 175: Three-Word Songs

My Pick: Suzanne Vega - Small Blue Thing



Reason to Pick the Song: the object was easy: pick a song title with three words. A lot of fitting songs came to mind and it seemed for a day or so that all songs I heard had three words in the title Anyway, I picked Small Blue Thing because a) I like the song and love Suzanne and b) all three words are important in that title (no 'of', 'the', ...). Not that that mattered to the theme, but I found it more appropriate

Semi-Final Result: 3th

12: Northstar, traddles
10: Beat, fufuqifuqishahah, Poldo, Randy
8: AdeyC, ArturJFC, Milan.
7: Cesare Borgia, Igorche, John.
6: Marucic., Matmagix, Perun, SilverPersian
5: histery, Queen Vika
4: Silent Bird, zovonarevarulz
3: JMG, Litotes
2: SRB Analyst, Wally., Wanderer
1: king vulture, Slazorin

Final: 20th

10: Northstar, Mauriac
7: Poldo, ArturJFC
6: AdeyC
5: John.
4: Cesare Borgia
3: Perun, Igorche, SilverPersian, Litotes, fufuqifuqishahah
2: Wally.
1: Milan., Wanderer

Comments

La Quica: Quality even smaller. :smack:
Silent Bird: I never checked out her other work, but it seems like I didn't miss much.

Conclusion: I was glad to make the final; it's been awhile. A bit strange that I ended last in that final, while the song was third in the semis. Probably a combination of players that liked the song not submitting final scores (Beat, traddles, Randy, ...) and being in the lowest-quality semi-final?
Beat likes this.

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream
