    No you ain't wrong...and neither am I, the beauty of music and its subjective nature.

    Like, 'Today' by The National is tops for me and a few others in here too, but finished near the bottom. I'm not even a fan of that band, but that tune just calls to me.

    Imagine Dragons near the top?? That I can't abide, but hey, it does something for someone. If a tune moves you, or grates you, well that is the important thing and fúck everyone else.

    As I said during the NAS reveal, the thought of judging music and scoring it in this respect is hilariously wrong to me...but Walrus is a great and important game for the community IMO. Another 'well done' to Rikand for bringing it to our shores.

    Notes

    Listen1: decent enough. i like the end bit, pretty catchy

    Listen2: yeah not bad... well put together alright. Nice vocals and the music is nicely rounded. Proper musicians behind that song fo sho. oooh. just heard a bit of piano there that elevates it quite nicely. Solo following the piano's lead. tasty. oooh his 'why's are full of emotion. I love that. woah nelly. Started off grand. Finished up heavy af. bumped 2 scores from start to finish.

    Delighted to get a decent result in my first round of walrus:) But I only realised after submitting my list that I'd put the wrong version of the song in. Didnt want to change incase Tusk had already listen to it. Its by the same band just a bit more of an acoustic version, Eddies vocals in this particular performance send a shiver down my spine every time I hear it

    Ah there's multiple live versions of Black which are 'best ever' material. Love Unplugged and the rawness of Eddie's vocal, also love this...



    Btw I've seen PJ live 20+ times and play in a PJ tribute, I'm a bit of a freak :pac:

    Notes:

    Listen1: People are gonna moan about this as a joke, but i fukking love this guy and I don't care :P

    Listen2: So I listened to this song first for the first listen. And I already knew it. And I like it. I think it's brilliantly put together. You might see someone acting the bollix here, but I think it takes real skill to pick and choose the notes to play correctly and the ones to **** up. I love it. However, after listening to everything else twice, I need to put this in the right place based on those.

    Just got round to listening to this now. I was totes emosh, skunk.

    And I love the bolded line from tusk above. No truer words were ever written :pac:

    That "we belong together" line in throws in on live versions just adds that extra little bit of heart break to an already heartbreaking song

    I didn't come in last from my first song! Wherever I go from here, I'm counting this as a win.

    Notes

    Listen1: decent enough. nice background music. Wouldn't go out of my way to find it again though

    Listen2: Ah it's fine, just not really doing anything for me. I'm getting nothing really from this listen at all. I just want it to end so I can move on :/

    Just reading the thread now, thanks for sharing your thoughts. My reason for picking this one is because I first heard it maybe 14 years ago but it was only a snippet on the radio. It was the days before shazam and smartphones. A few years after that I saw an ad for little miss sunshine on network two and this song is on the OST. Asked on boards who it was, got the answer, downloaded the album there and then and listened to the song repeatedly. It's my most listened to song on my ipod and I've loved it since. When he played in Dublin 4 years ago I missed out on tickets so as a wedding present my wife bought me tickets and flights to see him in Manchester. The day we were due to fly over for the gig we went into the coombe for a scan and without going into details we got some devastating news and couldn't go to the gig. For a couple of years I couldn't bring myself to listen to it but it came on shuffle randomly at some point last year and it's been back in circulation since.

    Anyway, that's enough maudlin, I'm looking forward to getting your opinions on the 21 minute opus I put through. :D

    Thanks for sharing Jurgen! That's some story! And thanks for helping to add some more tears to my walrus bucket today :(

    I'm gonna go find a hole to climb into and bawl the rest of my tears out.

    Haven't cried this much in years :)
