    12 Song Tournament (Listen+Vote) #1

    Welcome to selfsurprise's 12 Song Tournament #1. If you don't know what that is, congratulations, you missed the nominations round.

    Results:
    Pond - Leisure Pony is winner!!

    2nd: Burning Star Core - Mysteries of the Organ

    3rd: Current Value - For a Hundred Summers

    Well done to ProximityFuze for nominating the winner!

    Round 1 (completed)
    For each of the 6 battles below, listen to both songs and answer with your favourite. (Or, if that gives your nethers an uncomfortable itch, answer 5 of them and use the bonus)

    (a). Decadence vs For a Hundred Summers
    (b). Death Come Near Me vs Hold Me Down
    (c). Knives vs Coffins and Cloven Hooves
    (d). Better Git It in Your Soul vs Leisure Pony
    (e). Mysteries of the Organ vs 23
    (f). Cruise Ship Terror vs Clue to My Desire

    Bonus: if, for one of the letters above, you find that both songs are the audible equivalent of being sucked through a sewer pipe lined with barnacles, then you have the option to skip that question and answer the wildcard instead: (g). I'm Not Jesus. If it gets more votes than one of the winners from above, it'll donald trump that song out of business.

    Voting for round 1 will close sometime after this thread quietens down, at the exact time I scrobble a zebrahead song for the first time.

    Semifinals (completed)

    Now to vote all over again. As before, for each of the 3 battles below, answer with your favourite. Voting for the semifinals will close sometime after this thread quietens down again, at the exact time I scrobble a Social Distortion song for the first time. The finals will be some kind of triple battle between 3 songs.

    (h). For a Hundred Summers vs Hold Me Down
    (i). Knives vs Leisure Pony
    (j). Mysteries of the Organ vs I'm Not Jesus

    Finals (completed)

    3 songs left. To keep it simple, each song battles the other 2, and if one song wins both its battles, it'll be the winner, otherwise it'll be down to a vote count. The tournament closes when I scrobble a Youth Brigade song for the first time. Pick your favourites for:

    (k). For a Hundred Summers vs Mysteries of the Organ
    (l). Leisure Pony vs For a Hundred Summers
    (m). Mysteries of the Organ vs Leisure Pony

    (k). For a Hundred Summers vs Mysteries of the Organ
    (l). Leisure Pony vs For a Hundred Summers
    (m). Mysteries of the Organ vs Leisure Pony


    How should we laud the winning song? I'll scrobble it out of respect I guess! Should there be a sequel to this tournament or was it not that exciting?

    (m). Mysteries of the Organ

  • (k). Mysteries of the Organ
    (l). Leisure Pony
    (m). Leisure Pony

    I didn't mind the concept but, and this is a pesonal opinion, there wasn't really enough variety.

    And let's face it, if only a handful of people play it is probably more work than it is worth.

    But thanks for putting it together Bloopy & (initially) Selfsurprise.

    Indeed, even the core supporters have lost interest before the end of this one. I'm surprised at people who nominate songs and then never vote. Did they think they were nominating songs for a Last.fm dance rave? And I know selfsurprise is watching on from his underground lair, rubbing his hands together at the success of his songs and saying "eexxcelllennt".
