Write-Up:
The intro to this song sounds like something I have strummed before while goofing off which isn't me suggesting that they stole my song :P but that if I could play something like that then it's gotta be awfully easy to do. I've been playing guitar off and on for 12 years and I still feel like I suck lol. Anyway, the beat is ok. But I have to be honest when the vocalist starts to sing It's definitely odd as in, not the rate, tone or pitch I was expecting. Actually... I really don't know what I was expecting. Unfortunately at some point this tune turns into noise for me. I'm listening to these as I rank them with a pretty decent set of headphones but there is still an overwhelming twanginess to this song that is borderline tolerable. It kinda surprises me a little to see that this song has mostly favorable reviews.

Raka... did you just try to hypnotize me? "Close your eyes, close your eyes and your legs" XD (The correct verse is close your eyes, close your eyes and relax) ...but I swear that's all I can hear as this song closes lol. I'll admit, after hearing this a few more times I probably could have justified bumping this higher but... I don't entirely feel like it's necessary this early in the ranking to quibble over something I'm not so sure about. I can clearly see that the internet has raved over this performance but after being an indoctrinated baptist for nearly 20 years, it's honestly meh to me. It could be a religious aversion knocking down the points here tbh but I don't exactly have the extra time to unpack that psychological can of worms. Jesus's voice is magnificent though I gotta say.

{ 1,252nd Place } [80's][ 251st Place] @Raetsel_Lapin
Song: "Just Like Jesse James"
Band: Cher
Album: Heart Of Stone

Ye... ee..eaa... eah.. ahhh. I dunno... That 80's backtrack tugs on my interests but man, there are very few Cher songs that I find worth listening to. I won't bulls***, it's her voice. It doesn't work for me. It just sounds too much to my ears like a girl trying hard to imitate a dude trying too hard to imitate a girl... or somewhere in the middle there. There are other female vocalists with deep voices that sound great for sure but only a couple of Cher's songs have the right melody to make me forget that she's not a dude. That sounds really bad and like an a**hole thing to say but what I mean is that I don't feel like she has very many songs where she authentically sings like a woman. (Disclaimer: That statement has nothing to do with her Gender obviously, just her voice.) I am of course admittedly being a hypocrite here as I am a dude and have sung plenty of songs imitating a female vocalist. Sue me. :P

Well that was a much better score than expected... not that I don't highly enjoy the song, I just had incredibly low expectations.

==========================================

Just Like Jesse James

I can't explain why I like this song so much. The lyrics aren't great and they repeat way too often; Cher herself never liked the song; it's not even the best "Cher song from the Heart of Stone" album, to say nothing about the rest of her works. But... I dunno. I still like it anyway.

I have a high bias towards her due to her being some of the only music I was exposed to when I was quite young--if you ever want to hit me with nostalgia try anything of Cher's from before the 90s, Dolly Parton's brief foray into pop music in the 80's, the few songs Placido Domingo released in English, or The Monkees.

...why you would want to throw me on a nostalgia trip is a question I don't have an answer for, but if for some reason you ever need to induce flashbacks, those are pretty good places to start.

[Edit after the topic went up: Well my prophetic dream did not come true. I dreamed that the song in dead last was a Pokemon game song, Goldenrod City I believe, nominated by...someone with a W in their name, Wicklebee maybe? Se7en went on a bit of a rant about how much he hated Game Boy music and resented allowing it in the first place; "Just Like Jesse James" was the second lowest song, with the only write-up being "at least this is actually music".

...though in a way I was sorta close; the lowest song's description did involve Se7en complaining about allowing it in & the first "actual" song to be eliminated was one of mine featuring a song title with a celebrity name in it. Not perfectly accurate, but still a lot more accurate than I would have assumed.]

Write-Up:
Never heard this one before. I was shocked to see that it was from 1998 though because it sounds like it's straight out of the 70's and even Bowie sounds young for some reason. It's an interesting collaboration but I don't really start to jive with the song until 3 minutes in. Great beat from then on though and it's sort of a memorable and perilous sound which is great but 1/4th of a song equals about 1/4th of a score. Supposedly this song is used in an episode of "Queer as folk" but I've never seen the show so I couldn't confirm that.
