And then I seem to have botched transfering files at some point, as half of Shonen_Bat's nominations have been replaced with NFUN's and anyone with a user name after Shonen's appears to have vanished entirely. Give me a bit to fix this. </.<

Okay, that was a bit harder to post than expected, but I think the nomination list is accurate.

Which means it's time to officially drop the bottom two songs.


#300 [#291]:

Name: Candyman
Origin: Christina Aguilera
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsQXVJOgvNY

Nominator: Raka_Putra (15/15)

(1, 1, 0)

[Too explicit and too old-fashioned, with a video using a military backdrop. It’s like a collection of things I’m not interested in... I should give it a few points for being so far outside my comfort zone, but I’m struggling to convince myself to not drop it in last place.]

After listening to it again, I've obviously changed my mind about not awarding last place to this song. I tried to give this some credit, really, I did--"it's catchy ennough that it's gotten stuck in your head multiple times and you need to give some credit to new experiences! You can't have this in last place!"

Then we get to a military cadence as the outro to the song and I'm forced to admit that I really don't want to put any song below this one.

First, I'm asexual, so the more sexually explicit the lyrics, the more quickly I'm turned against the song. I typically need things to be more...metaphorical. Like "Dancing in the Dark". I know Springsteen isn't literally talking about dancing at night, but through the power of willful ignorance, I can at least pretend. Daydream about how romantic dancing in the moonlight can be and what not (granted, I don't dance and Springsteen wouldn't be my type anyway...). It at least gives me something I can work with.


This is a problem "Between the Sheets" ran into last ranking topic; loved The Isley Brothers, loved hearing a song from them that I didn't recognize (I knew them for their 60's and 70's work), praised the song for having a smoother sound than any other nomination, and how well it stood out from the other songs... but even with all the positives, I just couldn't give a particularly high placement to it because I had absolutely no use for it.

["I Love You, Honeybear" should have been in the running for first place last topic, but it took a long time for me to become comfortable with it.]

While fairly catchy, this song never came close to the aforementioned songs quality. And then there's the military aspect, which... why? Even if I liked the rest of the song, the outro alone would tank the placement. It's like this song exists purely to be the opposite of what I want.

...which, yes, should be worth something. Last place is something, right? No one ever remembers the song that came in next to last.

#299 [#300]:

Name: Hunger Strike
Origin: Estradasphere [Album: It's Understood]
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oRiIUqUF00

Nominator: Flamander/Glacier (15/15)

(0.5, "I've run out of negative numbers", 0)

[“Different, but not different enough” is the phrase that came to mind when it started. Then, after the violin solo, my reaction was “too classic and old-fashioned”. Then I noticed how long the song was going to be and sighed.

Parts of it are alright. The electric guitar isn’t bad, I never hate saxophone playing (though it goes on too long on a song that was already too long, I was briefly happy to hear it), and then we still had five minutes left to endure. Very instruments. Much long.

There are long songs I enjoy (a few were nominated last topic), but this wasn’t one of them.]

Okay, so now I have a tiny Bluetooth keyboard. Not a good one and typing is somewhat difficult due to all the keys being out of place (will never adjust to tiny backspace key), but it's probably easier than on-screen keyboard.

The score for the second Round of listening is so absurdly low because I gave the song I wanted to award last place to a perfect "0"*. Then kept finding songs I liked less, resulting in scores spiraling below 0 and eventually an exasperated declaration that I was running out of ways to award negative scores.

...that may have been a tad harsh and all negative scores have been officially bumped up to 0s for the actual ranking. Yay?

Soo...long song. Ridiculously over-the-top long song. That's not a deal breaker by itself (from last topic, I believe it was "Graves" that had a long running time but was so intense with its music and story telling that I was enthralled), but this track just never works for me. Parts of it are fine, but if you want my attention for almost 20 minutes, I need more than fine--even if you just isolated the few parts I like and removed the rest of the fluff, this probably wouldn't get too great of a score anyway. More than 0, sure, but not great.

...Honestly kinda tempted to move some other song down to last place and give this a 0.1 in respect of the sax, but... nah.

[Later Edit: Well for better or worse, that saxophone kept this song from coming in dead last after all.]

[Final Thoughts: *Obviously said song will be indicated when it drops. You'll also note that we move into "actual numbers" after that point--really, I should have stopped being stubborn and gave it some points, but I refused to give in and now we have a large cascade of zeroed songs as I refuse to let the joke die.

...Though as I said, a 0 is a compliment in its own way when it comes to me, so I can justify it. Sorta.]
