Game 59: Light vs Darkness

Song: Fade Into Darkness by Avicii
RESULT: 15th in SF (FLOPPED)

My very first entry. I must admit its not a good one with my knowledge of BSG now. I had a day left before the deadline and I saw it in the Non-Tennis thread. I immediately read the rules and theme so I could join. For some reason, I remember seeing the theme and instantly remember this song - partly because of the title. I didn't expect to make the final but it gave me knowledge that a lot of the players aren't into current pop music/EDM like this one - which is a shame. Not the best Avicii song but still one of my favorites. :yeah:

Game 60: New Discoveries

Song: Sugar by Maroon 5
RESULT: 15th in SF (FLOPPED)

I love this Maroon 5 song. They're one of my favorite bands ever. When I saw the theme, I did think that it meant new current music, but obviously one could have discovered something which wasn't new. While I do like their old songs better, this was much better than Maps and Animals IMO. Adam's falsetto is also quite good here. Overall a good pop song that just didn't get points from the other majority. It got many 12s from my fellow pop lovers (whom I can count on in the future) but then not a lot after that.

Game 61: Open

Song: Heroes (We Could Be) by Alesso ft. Tove Lo
RESULT: 8th in SF | 15th in Final

Tove Lo!! :hearts: She's one of my favorite current artists and I love this song very much. I love EDMs and I fell in love with this the first time I heard it. I jam to this song almost everyday especially that chorus. Based on the 2 previous games, I was expecting it to flop in the SF. To my surprise, a lot more people liked it and I made my first final. Being pessimistic about this choice, I thought I was 10th in the SF so it will probably finish last in the Final. Again, surprisingly, it broke the 100 points mark and managed to reach 15th. A placing I would get familiar with. :lol:

Game 62: Favorite Discovery

Song: In The End by Linkin Park
RESULT: 9th in SF | 10th in Final

Yes! I was browsing Youtube randomly like I do some days, I came upon Linkin Park! I've forgotten how I loved them since they haven't released anything new and really I only hear of them in the Transformers franchise nowadays. This is the first song I've heard of them and arguably their biggest hit. It belonged to my favorite album of theirs, Hybrid Theory. The next album Meteora was excellent too. I was really glad it made the final since it was still in the 21st century but was different from my 2 previous submissions. A "classic" if you will for me. I still remember it being constantly played in MTV or the music channel when I got home from school.

Game 63: Songs of Tough Life/Death

Song: Fast Car by Tracy Chapman
RESULT: 1st in SF | 1st in Final (WINNER)

My 1st BSG Slam! :cheer: :cheer: :hearts:. I've got to say I have my parents to thank for this. This is one of their favorite songs and both of them would play Tracy Chapmans CDs every weekend and especially on long car trips. Fast Car would be the go to pick by my mom so I could sleep. When I hear it, it usually means its a long trip :lol: This song is just beautiful. I did mistake her for being a boy when I was young. I saw the CD cover and my parents corrected me. Her androgynous voice is what makes her excellent IMO. When the theme was revealed, I had a hard time looking for a song. It just so happens that I was creating a BSG Song List which features potential submissions. I remember seeing Fast Car not being picked yet so I was happy with that. I gave it a listen and it was a perfect fir for the theme. Tracy's voice just tells the story of pain, but also freedom into just going out and not thinking about anything else. A very special song and one I am proud to have won with. :yeah:

Game 64: Biology

Song: Open Arms by Journey
RESULT: 7th in SF | 17th in Final

Journey. A staple in every Karaoke night I would come across in the Philippines. Especially this song. My dad loves them very much and besides this, I only really know them for Don't Stop Believing. Glee also kept covering them. :lol: I picked it because for Biology, body parts were allowed and my brain instantly jumped to Arms ---> Open Arms. My favorite Journey song now is Faithfully but this comes as a close 2nd. I didn't know what to expect for this game and wasn't expecting much really since I was focused and excited about Game 63 and the reviews Fast Car was getting. Happy that the usual people gave it points and although it didn't do well in the final, I fell in love with the game more because while I was discovering new stuff, I was also sharing and doing well as this was my 4th straight final.

Game 65: BSG Discovered Artist

Song: Picking Up The Pieces by Paloma Faith
RESULT: 4th in SF | 15th in Final

I first discovered Paloma Faith in Game 60 when John. submitted the awesome "Only Love Can Hurt Like This". I voted for it and it did really well in the final. After that game I searched for more of her songs and liked "Picking Up The Pieces" the most. The theme was excellent since up to that point, Paloma Faith was my best discovery so I knew I had to submit it. Also didn't hurt that Paloma was liked and I expected it to do well. It did do well in the Semis by getting 4th but I was disappointed to see it finish to 15th. Upon reviewing I see 2 people who gave it high points didn't vote in the final so it could have been higher. Still a great song that showcases Paloma's range and artistry. :yeah:

Game 66: Peninsula of Misfits

Song: Reflection by Christina Aguilera
RESULT: 15th in SF (FLOPPED)

I didn't really like any of the choices for this theme so I went with the Under 18 category. I think I recently watched Mulan during the time and so I researched Christina's age when she did it (she was 17). I loved this song when I was kid who would always watch Mulan when it was on Disney Channel. It has such a strong meaning and I figured the pop side of the BSG would like it. I was wrong though since it came out that Christina is not really well received. :sad: I think she's amazing and like her early songs. I didn't vote in the SF ( I think I had exams and just completely forgot ) but it wouldn't have changed it as I would be out still in the SF. It was disappointing to see game wise since my 5 final streak was broken. The next game cheered me up since I had chosen the theme for it.

Game 67: Guilty Pleasures

Song: The Climb by Miley Cyrus
RESULT: 5th in SF | 15th in Final

Ahhh my team. I absolutely loved this game! :hearts: Not just because it was my theme, but because unlike the others, I enjoyed the quality of the songs ~ some I loved and knew and some that grew on me. I also loved how some people had to work for it :lol: :eek:h:. The thread had a lot of activity if I remember correctly. Anyway, let me be one to say it again, I miss this Miley. Not ashamed to say that I enjoyed watching Hannah Montana when I was young. I would watch it when it was on because it was funny/relatable/and I liked the songs. I don't have a problem with her songs now really but I do wish she didn't all out change her personality. This is my favorite song of hers up to this day. Its so raw and powerful ~ even often getting covered often in singing shows for the message. She also sounds AMAZING especially at the end with the "whoooaaooh oh oh". I always get chills after that. I always re-listen to each song as I post it in the thread and again it makes me feel sad in a good way, but also as I see the old Miley. I know she "grew up" but I do hope she releases something like this in the future. I didn't feel like sending it would affect my chances because I believed in how good the song is despite of her image now. It did flunk below expectations in the final but I'm glad it got 5th in the SF.

Game 68: Geography

Song: Walking In Memphis by Marc Cohn
RESULT: 16th in SF (FLOPPED)

I liked geography in school, well some of it anyway. I actually discovered this song as it was covered in The Voice a couple of times, first being in Season 3 by Sam James. This will be a recurring theme since I basically watch American Idol and The Voice religiously. A place where I discover songs too. Anyway, I was actually expecting the final here before reveals since it felt like the song would please different people. When I heard the cover, I checked this one (the original) and I liked it. I also usually send the 1st or 2nd thing that pops into my mind and I just instantly remembered Memphis to fit the category. Disappointed to not make the final really but I still think its a good find. :yeah:

Game 69: Collaborations

Song: Just Give Me A Reason by P!nk ft. Nate Ruess
RESULT: 4th in SF | 4th in Final

One of P!nk's best songs!! :hearts: I love this song even more because of Nate. I think he added more to it and I loved his part. Their exchange at the bridge is excellent :worship: I knew I had to send this song since its my favorite duet. I had high expectations for it and I was rewarded. It felt short off the podium but a Top 5 finish (4th) was still satisfying enough. I did experience the theory that songs that do well early on tend to slow down or die. I would experience this in a lot of my finals ahead. All I can say is again, I LOVE THIS SONG. :inlove:
