    Irish Aris


    Blondie – Fun





    That's right, no spoilers this time, your names are going in bright lights folks!!!

    Very fun tune this, not sure it’s a summery one? I guess it is given how upbeat it is. Nothing wrong with it, again I struggled finding reasons to rank songs in this round given the quality. Most... MOST of the songs I really enjoyed as is evident from this...

    That means Aris finishes up with a very cool showing and 66 points in total, thank you for your entries!!

    In 12th place with 5 points


    Kolido


    Duke Dumont - Ocean Drive







    Not great, not awful. Perfectly acceptable track imo. About here is right for it. Again the only thing that’s really massively summery about this to me is the title.


    Kolido had an excellent run, a couple of top 3 hits and a category win in the 90s... but also some that weren’t as popular.
    A grand total of 80 points to Kol!

    Deja Boo


    Pontoon – Little Big Town





    I can dig this. Definitely some cool summer feeling off this. Video oozes cool too. Nice choice!


    52 points for Deja, definitely not to be sniffed at – thanks for your entries Boo Boo :D

    Ari101


    Matoma & Becky Hill - False Alarm






    I initially had this ranked really low but on repeated listens it started to climb a little bit. I’m still not sure exactly how I feel about the track fitting the category (the beat is fairly nifty tbf) but here is a fair position for it, imo anyways. It has a nice vibe to it, might have done well in the driving round actually!


    That score puts ari out in front on 108 points… will it be enough to claim the title?

    Sawduck



    Zara Larsson - Lush Life








    Ah yes, I knew of this song prior to it being submitted but didn’t know who sang it. Rihanna-esque in parts. Very cool, very summery. Good choice!


    68 points for Sawduck, a very good showing indeed! Always enjoy your entries of different variety, thanks for playing!


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,063 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    In 8th place with 9 points



    Trigger



    Rhythm is a dancer - SNAP!







    Cracking club classic, yeah this is definitely a summery vibe. Nice choice but it’s a bit overplayed I think.


    105 points total for Trigger, putting him in second place overall for now. A fantastic showing with some brilliant entries.

    ari101 is still hanging on in there though....

    The purple tin


    The Faces - Ooh la la





    I actually have heard of a purple tin submission! WHAT IS GOING ON??? :eek: Great old track this. Strumming out on the porch and your mates singing along to this with a few brewskis in hand type summery.


    57 points for the purple tin. Some were hot… others… were not. :P Thank you for playing though!

    In 6th place with 11 points


    Necrina


    Owl City, Carly Rae Jepsen - Good Times







    Yeah definitely heading in the right direction summer feeling wise. Another choon this entry!



    Necrina hits 97 points in her second ever Walrus. It won’t be enough to win but it’s a very good effort. Thanks for playing and hopefully you enjoyed it!

    In 5th place with 12 points



    ShaneU



    Supergrass - Alright







    I mean what more can you ask for in a summer song? This is such a classic. I’m still not sure if I made the correct decision in the ranking of this and the next three. All on a par and just had to go with my gut :/



    Things just got interesting… ShaneU takes the lead by a solitary point – 109 points in total!!

    Hard luck ari...

    I'm fine, congrats Shane for taking the lead, podiums still possible and all that...

    Electric Nitwit



    Light and Day - The Polyphonic Spree





    Just love this track, when it was used in Scrubs that time it was so perfect and I’ve been in love ever since. So tough to place this given the quality at the top of the rankings. That Scrubs scene fyi….






    Wellity well… EN levels proceedings with Shane and finishes on 109 points… could it be a tie at the top of the Walrus table?


    tenor.gif


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,601 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU


    So I need EN and LeVar to both finish bottom three, that ain't happening.

    Not mad about the low scoring songs but I came third in the video game round to the Mortal Kombat theme (which is from the movie not the games!) and a freaking random Placebo song!


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,063 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    And for the final time it brings us to our final 6…..

    Jermaine Delightful Gourd

    JP Liz V1


    And of course….

    Is it wrong I am wishing this gif on LeVar so I can hold onto my 3rd place??? ;)

    Queens of the Stone Age - Feel Good Hit of the Summer







    Not sure what’s so ‘Feel Good’ about this? Seems like all the bad things rolled into a big ball and repeated ad infinitum. It’s a no from me.



    71 points for fix, it’s not in the challenging places but it’s a very good score nonetheless.

    Keith Urban - Long Hot Summer





    Just captures the overall vibe I was thinking about, probably better than most songs submitted tbh. As I said it was very close with the previous higher placed songs and this and in the end it came down to a gut call. This won out… JUST.

    Hahahaha this annoyed me when I did up the scores (the ties), but anyways I’m sticking with it – LeVar levels proceedings to join Electric Nitwit and ShaneU on 109 points!!!

    I could have jingled around the places but I honestly didn't think it was fair on any of the three guys at the top.

    In 15th place with 2 points



    Jermaine Delightful Gourd



    Hollow Coves – Coastline







    I’m not sure why I’m not vibing on this song, I can’t quite put my finger on it. The title suits the category but the song itself sort of contradicts that? Moving far away to a sunny place he says, well he could be a bit happier about it!!!

    Homer finishes the proceedings on 67 points. A category win goes home with him though so he should not be disheartened. Really enjoyed some of your submissions.

    JP Liz V1



    Nicki Minaj - Starships







    This is a real guilty pleasure song of mine. I can’t help but enjoy it even though I really shouldn’t. Perfect for the category too, great choice.



    102 points in total for Liz. That’s a phenomenal run, well done and thank you for the entries!

    Barna77



    Astrud Gilberto, Joao Gilberto & Stan Getz - The Girl from Ipanema







    I get the summer vibe off this song surely, problem is it’s infuriatingly annoying. Your man can’t sing (cue Barna telling me he’s some sort of Spanish legend lol). It actually was growing on me a little with a few more listens but it’s far too long as well. 3 mins running time would be plenty for this imo.



    65 points for Barna. Not too shabby… well, we will always have Pure Shores, at least :o


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,063 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    AND our final First place, coming in with 16 points….



    Cee_jay



    DNCE - Cake By The Ocean








    Cracking summer song, it was close with the others at the top (Top 5 in particular) but this chorus just won out in the end, I love it. All together now YA YA YA YA YA AHHHHH, CAKE BY THE OCEAN!



    And cee_jay finishes up with 106 points… it’s close but no cigar unfortunately….

    I'll let wikipedia tell you :pac:

    João Gilberto (born João Gilberto Prado Pereira de Oliveira – Portuguese: [ʒuˈɐ̃w ʒiwˈbɛʁtu]; June 10, 1931 – July 6, 2019), was a Brazilian singer, songwriter, and guitarist, who was a pioneer of the musical genre of bossa nova in the late 1950s. Around the world he was often called "father of bossa nova"; in his native Brazil, he was referred to as "O Mito" ("The Legend").


    :D:D:D:D

    How could you put that song last :eek:
