Went from dead last to third within the space of 8 voters :D Thanks to N.M., Shveddy and MuteToucan for the 12s.

Congrats to Pierre, and to AdeyBear for being an amazing person.
With 10 voters to go you were 17 points from 19th place. At that point even 19th place would have required a substantial improvement. But from that point you really went on a tear. 73 points from the last 10 voters. In that span you went from 81 points away from 1st place to just 21 points behind. That is some run. If that could have been followed with a couple more 12s I am sure it would have been the biggest, most improbably comeback in TF history. :D

Must be still be as up there as one of the best comebacks from dead last place with 2/3 of the votes in the bag as these games have produced.

^I think I remember Mustafina making a charge from dead last at the halfway mark to first place with ... Winter Is Blue by Vashti Bunyan? Or it might have been another selection ...

I think recently with that Chilean Samantha Summers song you climbed to the podium in the last 3 or 4 votes which were mostly all 12?

Wow, Hanging On did win! Big Congrats to Pierre!:love: Thank you for the great song! SO HAPPY!:D

Well, 8pm UK time is 3am in my time zone. I woke up and started to watch the show from the beginning. Half way through the process it sort of became a suspense drama. Exciting!

Really!? It turned out to be what I’ve predicted- “Hanging On…to win”!:ROFLMAO:
If not an award, can I at least get a souvenir for it? I mean, I really want that goofy delicious Turkey of Litotes’(Congrats for runner-up!⭐). Would you please…pull out a tail feather from it to make my crown?

Fun to be here to get to know people a bit, and also great music. The game demands much more time and devotion than I had expected. I learned a few things and will take them with me.^^

Thank you all, villagers of the music forest🦚! AdeyC is gracious! Guess I’ll join you again sometime.

Song title: Stay just the Way You Are

AND thanks for the great theme SB. One that would definitely be worth revisiting in future.

VERY SURPRISING that Bad Apple did that well... I guess shamisen, koto and Taiko really did well with you guys. Thank you all!

Bad Apple was a song made for a Game but you can always count on Japanese people using traditional instruments to play a completely new rendition of the tune. They even did a short performance on Sailor Moon main theme

Thanks everyone for the lovely congratulations 🥰 so warm! I just wanted to ask, even if this thread is probably going to be pretty inactive now, what you guys liked about my song? I've always been a huge fan of the harp so I wondered whether it was that, or whether it was the gorgeous vocal layering and harmonizing as the song continued to build? As I said earlier I got a lot of points from players of multiple tastes which is awesome, so I'd love to know what it is about the song that allowed it to resonate so well with lots of different people :) any responses (good or bad) welcome! 💗

I just liked the whole atmosphere of the song (I guess the harp has something to do with that). I've actually looked him up on spotify and saved some of his music. I only rarely do that anymore in BSG, so that's saying something.

I'm never at home with such questions. I did like the song, I thought it was very nice. But exactly what I liked about it? I do like the harp. I also like the voice usage and harmonizing. It sort of fell together naturally for me. I don't really have other words for it. I just trust my ears. I'd be entirely useless as a music critic.
