Re: Number19's Song History

287: Previously Un-nominated vol. 6

song: Even Tho
artist: Joseph Arthur
album: Our Shadows Will Remain
year: 2004



Not surprised Joseph Arthur had not been nominated before.

Originally from Akron, Ohio and signed by Peter Gabriel in the mid-90's. Has played with Greg Dulli's Twilight Singers, and fronted bands such as Fistful of Mercy w/Dhanni Harrison & Ben Harper, RNDM w/Jeff Ament, and Arthur Buck w/Peter Buck, amidst his many solo albums.

I don't listen to everything he puts out, but I picked him because he had recently reentered my conscious when I found he has started a podcast which I came across on YouTube and he has a new album coming out soon.

Re: Number19's Song History

289: Scrabble's Most Wanted

Songs titles beginning with J, Q, X or Z

song: Zeroes and Ones
artist: Jesus Jones
album: Perverse
year: 1993



After the success of Jesus Jones' previous album Doubt, with two top ten hits in the USA, and whose biggest hit was all about it's time (Right Here, Right Now,) the band set about looking to the future, by recording almost exclusively digital, "to turn music into zeroes and ones." At the time the band took flack for this, but of course it has since become the norm. For the CD single both The Prodigy and Aphex Twin did remixes.


Across the world the message flies, information, truth and lies
It's all yours and it's all mine, you just have to find the time
We're all the same, we share the blame, we play the games
If it's yes or no the decision is easy, it's easy

Zeros and ones will take us there

This time the revolution will be computerized
You'll know it as you do it in real time before your eyes
Slip between realities
There's more to this than anything that you or I can see
The world is mine the world is yours and here's the cause

Zeros and ones will take us there

I've stared into the heart of it all
Seen the pictures on the wall
The beat of a heart
The oceans part and the patterns in my mind

This time, we've split the world once more
There's those that have and that don't in information wars
We're not alone 'cause all is known and it's everywhere
It's everywhere

Zeros and ones will take us there

Re: Number19's Song History

291: The Parent Trap

song: You Got It
artist: Roy Orbison
album: Mystery Girl
year: 1989



From my Dad's record collection there were many, too many options to choose from: Motown, Otis Redding, Tommy Roe, Rolling Stones, CCR etc. My Mom's record collection had only one option, Sure she had more than that one record. Lots of Christian bluegrass records, piano stuff like Frank Mills. All very uncool stuff. But there was that one record: Roy Orbison's Mystery Girl.

How does one of the greatest songs by one of the greatest artists finish 17th. Even more, how does it go from tied with the 2nd most points in it's semi-final to 17th.

Re: Number19's Song History

293: Overwhelming Wall of Sound

song: Falling Stars
artist: Blankenberge
album: Radiogaze
year: 2017



Blankenberge is a city in Belguim. Blankenberge the band are from Saint Petersberg. And they are my fourth favourite shoegaze band.

Results:

1 - AdeyC
0 - 9/20

Placing: 3rd

A bit surprised. I knew I could get one good vote, but I thought maybe these Russian kids with their retro shoegaze would get written off as "a copy of a copy" which one person in the game thread did say about them.

Re: Number19's Song History

294: Mathematician

song: Facet Squared
artist: Fugazi
album: In On The Killtaker
year: 1993



The title of this perfect album opener had always interested me, and with it's math reference made it perfect for the game. Facet is an acronym from the anti-nationalist lyrics, "flags are such ugly things." Fasut changed to an actual word and squared for emphasis.

Ian MacKaye started a punk band (Teen Idles) in late 70s Washington, DC before moving onto hardcore (Minor Threat, "straight edge" originates here with Ian) then "emocore" with Embrace. In 1987, with bassist Joe Lally and Rites of Spring drummer, Brendan Canty they formed Fugazi. Former Rites of Spring singer Guy (french pronunciation) Piccotto would eventually join, first as a dancer/vocalist before adding a second guitar to the mix. In the 90s, with everyone and their dog signing to a major label after Nirvana's success, Fugazi stuck to their guns and independent spirit never even entertaining the idea of signing to a major label, releasing their CDs on Ian's Dischord records, and keeping ticket prices under $10 for their shows. After the 2001 album The Argument Fugazi went on hiatus.

Results:

12 - The Crow, comfortably numb, histery, Adam
10 -
8 - SilverPersian, Shvedbarilescu
7 - AdeyC, Beat
6 - ArturJFC
5 -
4 - TennisFan102
3 -
2 - Perun
1 -
0 - 11/22

Placing: 4th

I was leading the game until the last few voters let me down. This was very surprising to me, as I thought I wouldn't even make it out of the semis. I thought the song was too aggressive. And with all the talk of people not even knowing who Fugazi were I wasn't sure how that would work out for votes.
