Game 250 - 5th Year Anniversary

Suzy Quatro - "The Wild One"


SF: 5th (8 songs qualified) ; F: 17th (xx points)

This was our Anniversary game. Anniversary game is basically the GS this game. I like this particular game, because we have so many players competing. I think I got Adey Adores and Spring Awakening. I just went with Adey Adores and this was the theme I really failed so hard. It was 108th edition. This time I backed by that bad result with this powerful song by one and only Suzy Quatro. :)
I was really happy with Final placement.

All in all, I got 6 points from Adey, which is a solid result. :yeah:

Game 251 - Previously Nominated Vol. 3?

Charlotte Gainsbourg - "Sylvia Says (live version)"


SF: 7th ; F: 8th (xx points)

Gave a hint instantly. Nominated my favourite female artist. :)
"Sylvia Says" live version is great!!!! It's slightly different than original. Shows that Charlotte does not need playback. "Sylvia Says" is from "Rest", 2017. IMO, "Sylvia Says" is third best song from this album.
Result-wise, ok-ish... I KNEW someone else would nominate another song from Charlotte and, of course, it was better ranked than "Sylvia Says".

Game 252 - Remixes Pre-2000

Bardeux - "Three Time Lover (Circus Mix)"


SF: 7th ; F: 16th (xx points)

My third game ever!!!!! :hearts:
This time, I made the biggest challenge ever, because I EXCLUDED all rock songs. People also had to send remixes with nice restriction, the song must have been released before Jan 01 2000! :devil:
@histery won the game with beautiful entry!

I had expected a better placement, maybe I am biased. This mix just kills it! Bardeux making Italo Disco? Yes, please! Any day!
Three Time Lover is from 1987.

Game 253 - One Is The Magic Number

Letta Mbulu- "Nomalizo"


SF: 4th ; F: 4th (xx points)

Maddox picked this theme. I knew that I failed previously in the same theme. So I went with nice funky piece by Letta Mbulu.
The result is amazing, since I won once and finishing in Top 5 with the same artist! I'll take it any day, since she is singing in her native language the most (well, this song has English parts).
Maddox won his own game. :worship:

Game 254 - Secret Santa

Obojeni Program - "981"


SF: 5th ; F: 13th (xx points)

This theme was abysmal... I got Adam as my recipient, so I decided to send first ever ex-Yu band (Obojeni Program) that had their song on MTV. I thought Adam would appreciate this kind of history + I told him before that I will send him a Serbian song, gave it small amount of points.

Btw, Mauriac sent Ivana Spagna for me and he won! :hearts: Got my 12.

Game 255 - All That Jazz

Duke Ellington - "Lotus Blossom"


SF: 5th ; F: 8th (xx points)

Hugues Daniel won 251st edition, so he decided to go with fantastic "All That Jazz" theme. Even in theme like this, we got few entries that were questionable. I sent Duke Ellington, because I knew he worked with all time great pianist Billy Strayhorn. Result in the final was ok, though I thought it could have been higher. <img src="https://i.imgur.com/MdveASt.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smilie" class="inlineimg" />

Game 256 - 2018

Snail Mail - "Heat Wave"


SF: 8th ; F: 10th (xx points)

What can I say about this edition? Not memorable at all. Nominated Snail Mail because she is one of those artists that had a great breakthrough.

Game 257 - Name Of Places

Gil Scott-Heron - "We Almost Lost Detroit"


SF: 9th ; F: 3rd (xx points)

Next theme was wayitis' "Name Of Places". We gave us lots of options with that title. I chose Detroit. What's more interesting, Gil did not sing about Detroit at all, it is probably other place. Gil did the masterful job in album "Bridges", which is by far my favorite. How can a piece from 1966 sound timeless? Also, his voice is "an eargasm". :hearts:

Most WTF fact from that game is that my song barely qualified in the final, but got that 3rd place in the final. :spit: Thanks to all voters. :)

Game 258 - Songs on Ice

Marco Beltrami - "Bethany's Wave"


SF: DIRECT FINAL ; F: 14th

Sam did not win, but got the chance to choose a category. He ended up with "Songs on Ice", where we had to nominate a song that was played during one ice skating program. I researched a lot and found a soundtrack from "Soul Surfer". The movie has a sad story and it can be inspirational. I checked if my song was eligible and found one skater that did not even qualify. :tape: Song is fine, but that story bought me. The position in such a game was ok, but that winner... :tape:

Game 259 - Southern Cone

José Larralde - "Si me vieras por dentro"


SF: 10th ; F: 20th (xx points)

Next theme was "Southern Cone". We had to nominate any band/musician that is from any country of South America. I went with Jose, since I nominated him and had no intention to research.
I was too lazy, but I like his folk songs. Larralde is from Argentina. 20th in the final is meh, but you know that not everyone is into this stuff. I had the fluke placement with stunning remix in "What The Folk!" game.

Game 260 - Open

Marie Davidson - "Naive To The Bone"



SF: 7th ; F: 8th


Another
open theme, another opportunity to me sending something I don't listen to on daily basis. Once I heard different song from the same album and I felt awkward after listening to "Adieux au Dancefloor". This one has catchy notes, yet no nuances in her voice. Cute entry.

Game 261 - WTA Finals Singapore 2014

The Black Angels - "Bad Vibrations"



SF: 1st ; F: 1st

Next game was WTA Finals Singapore. There was the iconic picture posted in the theme description and we needed to find the song that resembles this picture. I had "Bad Vibrations" on my list from game 222, so I did well to keep it until 261. What can I say for this American psychedelic rock band? Released in 2010, album's name "Phosphene Dream".
I was mesmerized by its lyrics and the singer. I could have related easily with the song, and it truly described one part of current state of WTA then. :lol:
I finished first and proudly chose next theme. This was my 6th win overall! :)

Game 262 - F*ck, Marry, Kill

Pierre Henry - "Psyché Rock"



SF: 14th ; F: DNQ

After the taste of win, awful flop came! Truly, this game was perfect for "F*ck, Marry or Kill". People just don't like exquisite instrumentation or they just need to reach that horizon to finally appreciate it enough. I chose both Marry/Kill - Marry because of its beauty, kill for pure psychedelia... Even tho I think SF2, where my song was placed, was abysmal in terms of results, you just cannot please everyone. Not the first time I saw bad voting patterns. My second mistake in this game is that I did not submit the full version of this song. 2:52 is just less. Here is the phenomenal full version of "Psyché Rock".


Low point: My biggest streak of 16 consecutive finals is finally over. People not knowing about good music and still voting for some songs that don't have the right progression... Oh, well, we are used to it.
