Two more for the new page:

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

#286 [#298]:

Name: Teacher Teacher
Origin: Jinjer
Link: https://youtu.be/oRkRwL0vjOg

Nominator: Murphiroth (14/15)

(1, -5, 0)

[I have no interest in remembering the things this makes me remember, nor in discussing the memories. And as I can’t listen to this without the memories coming back, this song was doomed to the bottom tier from the beginning. Sorry.]

The song itself is fine; I kinda like the female singer's voice, the guy is AVERAGE SCREAMY METAL GUY but I've enjoyed worse, and I don't have any complaints about the band or genre in general. But there's no way I can get into this song's subject matter and my memories without this becoming a very miserable topic for all of us, so I'll end it here.

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



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

#285 [#264]:

MiibiiMiibiiMiibii - Mibibli's Quest - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij0NKsodhJY

Nominator: GameBopAdv (8/9)

(2, 2, 0)

[The image makes me interested in learning about the game, but I’m not a fan of the song.]

I like the idea of retro inspired VGM and the general vibe of the song, but it feels like a fairly standard boss song.

[Final Thoughts: Looking into the game a bit more, I doubt it's for me. Not into the style of humor and, if the game's bragging about its difficulty in the trailer, then it's probably too much for me. Though, I do usually love Mega Man-like games... ehh, I suppose I have too many other games I'd rather play either way.

I can't say I've clicked more than two or three songs for the soundtrack, but I feel like I'm missing something with it. It's wildly praised (at least, from what little research I've done into the game, it seems to be praised frequently) and I thought that sort of retro music was one of my things, but I'm not really connecting with any of the songs. Perhaps they work better in context?]

One song this time for two reasons:

1.This is the last Absolute Zero'd song, so it's a bit of a milestone in its own way.

2.The two songs immediately afterward are the first tied placement and it would be awkward to to only post one of them, and I don't really want to post three songs right now, so... one post for now.

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

#284 [#293]:

Name: Maybe it was Fated
Origin: Kiseki jdk Acoustics
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWswLE-64co

Nominator: NFUN (14/15)

(1 [later reduced to a 0], 0, 0)

[I don’t think there’s an acoustic version of any normal song that I like. If I enjoy artificial sounds, turning a song into an acoustic version is a sure way to make me resent it.

...actually give me back that 1, this song gets a 0 on behalf of all acoustic arrangements everywhere.]

Ah, this song. Once I decided there was no way I was ever going to let this song have any points, it kinda disrupted the scoring system for everything I liked less. Honestly, it's not bad, but I just don't like acoustic covers.

...I know I'm setting myself up for misery by stating that and will admit I haven't heard many, but seriously, they are the exact opposite of what I'd want a cover to be.

[LATER EDIT: Alright, alright, so there are acoustic versions of songs that I like and I was being wildly hyperbolic for no apparent reason. Such songs do have an uphill battle when it comes to earning my approval, but it can happen--just not with this song.]

[Final Thoughts: There's the final 0 song and the one that threw everything off once I decided I wasn't going to give it even .1 points, no matter how many other songs were ranked below it.

I'm sure the song is fine, but it runs into the same problem that songs like Teostra's Theme did--if it's created for computers and technological devices, I'd prefer the song not attempt to be as traditional and old-fashioned as possible. Too classical and too human.]

#282 [TIE] [#292]:

Name: Super Mario Bros. Music - Ground Theme (Hurry Up!)
Origin: Mashup By SilvaGunner (Super Mario Bros, The Nutshack)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrtbSvtVaaY

Nominator: paulg235 (14/15)

(0, 0.2, 0.5)

[Jokes I like get high scores. Jokes I don't like get 0s.]

Well, it is mildly amusing, but there's not much to it. I've never paid much attention to SiIva's channel, but even I know he's got better offerings than this one.

Also, this is the first song to officially escape the Absolute Zero Zone! Congratulations! Also, our first tie!

[Final Thoughts:

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

...I apparently left that space blank, but I'm going to stand by that lack of thoughts.



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

#282 [TIE] [#288]:

Name: Sophisticated Fight
Origin: We Love Sora no Kiseki
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmOVqITIDa4

Nominator: NFUN (13/15)

(4.5, 1, 0.5)

[In which they try too hard to make the song EPICCCC and bore me to sleep as a result. ...That may be a but too harsh of a write-up, but I'm standing by that as my first impression.]

I'm not sure why, but this feels like an inferior version of the "Real Adventures of Johnny Quest" theme:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIuuPTM3nSc

And that album title is giving me "Everyone Loves Ned Flanders" flashbacks.

NFUN:Everyone loves Sora no Kiseki!

Raetsel:Not me!

NFUN: Everyone who counts loves Sora no Kiseki!



I never planned on having these two songs tie, but when it came time to place them on the finalized list, it didn't feel right putting either of them above the other.

[Final Thoughts: It's not perfect, but the song's audio does rather compliment the intro at times:

https://tubedubber.com/?q=gIuuPTM3nSc:lmOVqITIDa4:0:100:0:14:1

The opening parts of the song just kinda feel like flying along a canyon and, in the incredibly unlikely event you can get the timing on the videos down, it's really great if you can get the drums to come in when the camera breaks through the wall. Tried setting the time myself, but it doesn't always work--my phone doesn't seem to consistently load and play the videos simultaneously, so there's usually a few seconds off each time I click play. It worked once!

Also, was his name always spelled without an h? I swear "Jonny" doesn't look right. I almost want to watch the series again now, knowing about the trouble development it went through--with the shows only two seasons being run with different teams, seemingly bent on creating two different shows. The first season going for realism and the second season going GHOStS & PSYCHIC POWERS because realism is boring to the max, yo!

...I have it on good authority that that is exactly how Lance Falk spoke when discussing his plans for the show.

[Lance Falk!]

This write-up sucks and is now about Lance Falk and his beard.

DID YOU KNOW:

Lance Falk wrote six episodes of Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron, as he has always believed cartoons should be radical TO THE MAX, YO! [citation needed]

Lance Falk's beard won the "most radical beard on Wikipedia" award five years in a row? [citation needed]

I cannot think of a third Lance Falk fact or a way to end this segment? [citation needed]

Lance Falk has been described as "an animation Swiss Army Knife", which is a pretty rad nickname. And that one's actually true! (Well the part about writing six episodes of Swat Kats was also true...)

...but it'd be pretty silly to bring this up to just keep talking about Lance Falk, so let's just go ahead and close out the bottom twenty with the last ranking of the night:



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

#281 [#290]:

Name: Agents of SHIELD Overture
Origin: Agents of SHIELD
https://youtu.be/mmTlWtHYX-M

Nominator: Murphiroth (13/15)

(0.5, 1, 1)

[Not my style of music at all and leaves me very tired.]

Yeah, something about this song always makes me sleepy... is not bad and a "go to sleep" song has its uses, but it's not going to get you a high score or long write-up.

Since I'm a few seasons behind on the show and don't recall enough of the first few seasons to really discuss them, I don't even feel like going off on a tangent about it. Wasn't a bad show; wasn't a great show (Arrowverse was better, though I'm a few seasons behind on all of those too), but it wasn't bad.

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

...Perhaps posted things a bit too quickly tonight... still trying to get use to a good schedule for these.

The one thing I will point out with Jinjer is that there is no guy singing, it's all her. She's super badass.

As for Agents of SHIELD...best comic show on TV IMO, and the theme is hype.

Huh, that is impressive. Don't think it would have helped that particular song--willing to try some of their other work, if you had a suggestion or two.
