^ I remember the Bruises case so you kind of deserved a close win to make it up
Also IIRC I gave 12 to Sirens Call and 10 to Bruises but it was really close and while I love both I think I like Bruises more now

I'd like to suggest "Coming of Age" as a theme as I will never win

I think there was a Madonna song I thought highly of, and wanted to give high points too, but didn't want to seem so mainstream in my first game, and like moved it down a bit. Which would've at least gotten us a tie of some kind.

I'm mainstream adjacent, but the majority of my picks, with the lone exception being, Be My Baby (other winner), are a little off the mainstream road at least.

Omg, I've never seen that thread, nor that forum.

I've already nominated "Coming of Age" by Foster The People, guess I should have saved it

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 41 – Open Category - Congrats to salmon pan

Sorry guys for missing the final voting for this one but my laptop has gone kaputt over the last days and I was stuck with nowhere to go. However since I gave Little Numbers a 12 in the semi I'd have given it a 10 or a 12 in the final again. So my non-votes hasn't cost salmon pants anything

If you don't mind me asking, what would you have given Ricky Nelson?

Probably 3 or 2 points Most of my points from SF didn't make the cut but it wouldn't have improved Nelson's overall place.
