Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 292 – Open Game - Nominate!!!!!!!!



As always a big thank to you to everyone here for committing to this 292nd event.

We have 23 participants for this one.

The songs are divided into two semi-finals, all done in alphabetical order of song title.

The top ten songs in each semi-final will go to a 20 song finalAll participants will still vote in the final, including the 3 who will be eliminated in the semi-finals.

All semi-final votes will be made public on FRIDAY 4TH OCTOBER 2019 – 7pm UK Time – when we will sadly lose 3 contestants. So you might not want to mention what your choice is in case it influences votes in the finals.

Good luck everyone

Adey C

First six songs, ewww. Just when I thought players won't sink lower.

The Cure's song is alright, because the lyrics are one of the best I heard from this album. Robert always delivered with his singing. No screams, just going with what he has. The beauty in itself.

I Wanna Be Your Lover is a funny song. I like it. Great instrumental experimentation.

It has happened to me a couple of times while sending my points Sometimes something distracts me and I fail to complete the task after having already typed everything properly in my PM to Adey. Obviously I am fully confident that I have voted as it has ''registered'' as such in my head.

That Bella Thorne - TTYLXOX track is repulsive. It is like a lamer alternation of some already lame song of Miley Cyrus.

As usual, I was the one who first sent Antena, way back in the summer of 2016. Camino Del Sol is better than Achilles, simply a classic. However, I love when bands like Antena at least try to make themselves interesting - both in lyrics and the arrangement. Anyway, that whole album is a gem, and not only for the 80s music lovers.

I have that Orville Peck song on my playlist. It's a second tier listenable song suitable for radio play. It's fine, but I hope it doesn't win.

Sextile's Disco was a tolerable listen, but I wish I could tell it apart from thousands of other songs. Maybe on a further listen I will hear something.

Still waiting for a song by The Cure I could like.

Moses Sumney - skilful but aimless kitsch.

Don't bother. If there hasn't been such a song yet, you just don't like them.
