    It’s a three way tie in this Necrus Part THREE – they just couldn’t be split over the 10 rounds at the end of the day. Shane started incredibly well but EN and LeVar probably finished slightly stronger, they definitely needed to given it was looking like a runaway after a few rounds…
    Commiserations to ari who was so bloody close, Trigger and cee_jay weren't far off either only 3 and 4 points behind respectively.

    And that's it from me, all that's left are the score tables....

    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!

    jump in my hoopty hoopty hoop I own that ;):p

    Congrats folks!

    Brilliant stuff as always Nec, very happy with my own showing and delighted you liked Late City Edition


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,832 ✭✭✭ ari101


    Thanks Necro! And congrats to the worthy winners :)

    This has been great fun, it's my first non quickfire walrus and I'm delighted with my score! :D
    (Well, it was my third long form Walrus to enter, but it's the first to finish revealing :pac:)

    I enjoyed it a lot and I picked up tips for future Walruses, though they are probably only Necro specific ;)

    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:

    I expected that reaction :pac:

    Didn't like it, simple as that really. Sorry Barna :pac:

    Cheers for running Necro, great fun as always, humbled to be getting another win under my belt, and glad to be sharing it with such esteemed company. Congrats again to Shane and EN.

    Congrats to everyone though, cracking tunes throughout the entire Walrus, and discovering new music is the goal, so kudos to all...

    Thanks Necro, glad you liked what you heard, even if you did insult my mate :p

    Congrats Shane and ASLB, pleasure to share the acclaim with you!

    Well done there lads, I don't think I ever seen a three-way finish before.

    Oh it has happened... The first Walrus I hosted ended in a 3-way...

    :pac:

    Congrats to all the winners, fair play Necro you had a lot of songs to listen to but some brilliant songs were entered




  • Took a bit of a risk with that summer one, I hadn't chosen anything yet and randomly heard that tune on an Instagram video (my first time ever hearing it) and decided it was nice enough to give it an airing. Definitely gives me "calm summer night on a beach with a few friends" vibe, but obviously not for the guy who thinks Mellow Yellow is depressing! :p

    Thank you for running and putting so much work into it. Also thank you for giving me a category win...and for not putting me dead last in any category. :pac: Among my many poor showings I'm actually most bothered by the Garbage one tbh; such disrespect to Shirley Manson should not be tolerated. :mad: But your appreciation of Ally McBeal makes up for it somewhat! :)

    And of course congratulations to the three joint winners.

    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!

    Excuse me, that "freaking random" Placebo song was from the finest automobile racing challenge of the turn of the millennium, thank you very much. :mad:

    This was actually gonna be my original entry for that category (it's on the soundtrack to one of the GTA games, apparently) until I decided to go with something I had actually played. Which did not leave me with many options.
