    I didn't enter but loving the reveal. I really liked Stu's factory flame. Chill and calming. Reminds me of something but I can't quite remember..

    Also really liked fixxxers therapy? Got kicks and the Brandi Carlile one is a song I'd definitely sing along to (very very badly).

    As for skunks Titanic flute?? Haha, amusement is a legit emotion!

    I might have entered Johnny Cash, Hurt for this.

    Aaaaaand we're back. Tea and toastie at the ready.

    Was Not Was -
    Banjo
    up next with 6 points for Arcade Fire - Intervention



    Notes

    Listen1: i like the lyrics, but the music and your mans' voice didn't really do it for me.

    Listen2: yep, i'm liking this. Feels christmassy. I remember my first listen thinking it sounded christmassy, but i don't think i mentioned that. The little bell bit is very offputting though. ah, as i get into it a bit more, I like it less :/

    The Syndicate - AKA
    Necro
    scooping up 22 points with Don't Cry by Guns N Roses



    Notes:

    Listen1: Love this song. One of Guns n Roses' best I would think. Not much else to say. super tune, but I've heard it enough to keep it away from top spots.

    Listen2: Choon.

    Can’t listen to songs but don’t cry brings back memories







































    Of a complete and utter bastard that I wouldn’t piss on if he were on fire!












    This round really does do what it says on the tin.

    Sounds horrible, Strawbs :(

    Keeping it in the family with The Sttorm Brothers -
    Necrina
    getting 5 points for Jason Mraz - I'm Yours



    Notes:

    Listen1: Mrs Tusk loves this song. I think it's fine. Nothing special about it. just grand. nice bit of singalong material, but probably overplayed for me now too.

    Listen2: Ah I'm not arsed with this now after listening to some of the previous songs. This just doesn't stack up at all. SKIP

    I’m yours puts me back into the good mood zone.

    I'm just in from the physio and my song hasn't been.

    Tusk, I've just endured half an hour of dry needling and I'm in agony, don't add to my pain... please :p

    LSD -
    QB
    Pulls in 23 points for Fountain of Sorrow by Jackson Browne



    Notes:

    Listen1: i'm into it. i like chord progression. has some great resolution. beautiful solo. nothing mad, but perfectly fits with the song. would definitely listen again, and look up more from this artist

    Listen2: I'm feeling it. getting a twinge of eagles off it, which is right up my alley. However, it seems the vocals aren't quite together enough there while they sing together. Solo singer is nice. Music is perfect, some great accents here and there that really elevate the song. that communal singing is bringing it down a bit tho. I like it. mmmmmm. tasty. BUMP IT. Tasty little solo there flowing through into the vocals, always nice, and well done, not overpowering the vocals. Finding myself drumming on my table now. Very good sign haha. Drums are great in this song. Will definitely be looking up more from this artist.

    Great choice Quickbeam! Love a bit of Jackson Browne


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,982 ✭✭✭✭Electric Nitwit


    Definitely an Eagles vibe there, which is no bad thing :)

    He has performed with them, and they came out of the same area really, so that might explain it.

    Next up, Guardians of Logik -
    Kolidawg
    with Rascal Flats - What hurts the most and 4 points



    Notes:

    Listen1:Starts off pretty promising. What follows is a bit generic and pop-feeling. I love the violin bit and the main music line, but the vocals let it down to be honest. Solo is a waste of time :/

    Listen2: love the guitar intro to this. Then the vocals come in and ruin it for me. Bleh. this could be so good. the vocals don't fit with the music. Feck that's really disappointing. boo! I'm scoring this badly because it hurts me that it could have been amazing based on that intro and it ruined it for me. Nice bit of violin in there tho

    Extra note, just watching the video here and had I watched that for original listens, it probably would have bumped it a bit.

    Emotion is a strange round in some ways, isn't it?

    I love Dakota, Radio Ga Ga and Undertow but don't find any of them particularly emotional. Then Luther Vandross gave me some feels but I didn't love the song itself.

    I get what you mean, Undertow is one of my favourite songs of all time but it also links with a particular memory* (not a happy one) so I get a curious mix of goosebumps and sadness any time I hear those opening notes. But it's a very personal thing and not one I'd expect any one else to identify with , and as such I'm quite satisfied with 12 points here.

    *think I wrote a little about it in my PM so now it's a beautiful/depressing moment shared only with sKeith. :p

    grabbing herself 24 points for Don't Give up by Bush & Gabriel.



    Notes:

    Listen1:oooh that intro gave me shivers! instant 9. hope it keeps it. Bit of a pump after the initial intro is delish. Bush jumps in and ruins it a bit to be honest. She sounds grand, but it doesn't fit with what came before. Seems like some random dj just decided to clip two different songs together. Gabriel brings it back to amazing straight away though. Ah **** then bush shows up to bring me back down. What a bitch. **** off! Is there a version without her bits? IF so this is an immediate winner for me. 'it's gonna be alright' niiice. The only bit of her's I liked. Jaysus I love Peter Gabriel. What a genius! Feck this is tough. ****ing Kate bush. jaysus sake. This is what it's like to be bipolar i guess? is that the point of this song, to ****ing make me hate myself for wanting to score it so high? What is her part all about? just go away like! Ruined at the end by that chorus of three 'don't give ups'

    Listen2: Finger drumming immediately. That intro is delish. Gabriel comes in smooth as butter and then throws a bit of passion in. Beauty. The ****ing kate Bush shows up and ruins it. WTF is she doing here! It feels like waking up from a beautiful dream and realising you're drowning in a pile of donkey ****. I really love Gabriel's voice in this. Bush can **** off! Gabriel belting out the bridge is just something special. He's so underrated it's unreal. what a hero. That beat in the background still going strong until ****ing kate bush comes in and ****s **** up. I actually hate her more than anything in the world right now. HOW DARE SHE! What's with that 'don't give up' bit fading at the end. Weird. Kate bush ruined this for me

    I just want to HEAVILY emphasise how fukking BAD kate bush is in this, good god she absolutely butchers the song and it broke my heart both times. Peter Gabriel is immaculate in it and his parts were so fantastic that the song remained high. Without Bush, this could have come first!

    Criticising Kate Bush. You are dead to me man. Dead!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,982 ✭✭✭✭Electric Nitwit


    Ha ha, I love Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush separately but agree this song was always worse than the sum of its parts, such a shame. Still a class song though

    She's grand, but she doesn't belong in this song. Jesus christ she ruins it so bad. And that's probably not on her, it wouldn't matter who did her bits, it's the bits themselves that ruin it.
