Re: histery's Best Song Contest history

GAME 42 - Let's Hear It For The Boys

Noir Desir - Le Vent Nous Portera

SF: 144 pts (rank 4/28)
Final: 137 pts (rank 8/20)




Why I chose this song

I think I made this choice in about 5 seconds, I was totally obsessed by this song for the past 3-4 months. The only dilemma was whether to choose the studio or the live version. I finally chose the live version because I found that the singer's voice sounded clearer and I was not terribly fond of the clarinet part at the end of the studio version.

Re: histery's Best Song Contest history

GAME 43 - Previously Un-Nominated

Cocteau Twins - Alice

SF: 156 pts (rank 3/27)
Final: 156 pts (rank 6/20)




Why I chose this song

This is another song I was obsessed with for a long time before submitting it. I first heard it in the trailer of The Lovely Bones and I was just blown away by it. I was pretty surprised that the The Cocteau Twin weren't nominated before, since they appear to be right down the alley for some of the players, but I took it and it was all good. After the votes were revealed I was truly surprised of oh well it was received.

Re: histery's Best Song Contest history

GAME 44 - Autumn Playlist

A-ha - Summer Moved On

SF: 141 pts (rank 4/23)
Final: 127 pts (rank 7/20)




Why I chose this song

Initially I had no clue what to pick, nothing really sprung to mind right away. After scrolling through the songs from my phone, I immediately noticed that both A-ha songs I had on it fit the theme great: "Summer Moved On" and "Crying in the Rain". I decided to go with Summer Moved On because it was the one i liked more and I taught more people would like it. The final results was a little bit disappointing since I expected a top 5 finish, but 7th isn't to shabby either.

Re: histery's Best Song Contest history

GAME 45 - Your love life in a song

Sade - No Ordinary Love

SF: 169 pts (rank 2/24)
Final: 150 pts (rank 3/20)




Why I chose this song

Well, my love live was not that interesting at that time (and still isn't ), so I decided to pick a song that best expressed the sadness of the situation; No ordinary love is probably the saddest song I know, and it kind of personifies what I feel inside sometimes.

The 12 for 57 is a lock , not sure what you sent for 58, I only liked 3 or 4 of songs from that edition, but it's great that one of them is yours . To bad you haven't given me points for a very long time
