    The purple tin


    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers - Into the Great Wide Open




    I get the feeling tpt is a Tom Petty fan, they do like tossing his music into my Walrus :P It’s worked mainly too in all honesty :D
    Very much enjoyed both the song and the video here, solid 7s all around. I’m not sure the video improves the song much mind, which is something I would say about the songs closer to the top of the rankings.

    Trigger


    All the small things - Blink182






    Great track, I’ve probably overplayed this a lot over the years though. The video is a solid banger though and yeah, I think it probably improves it quite a bit. 6.5 for the song, marked down a bit because of overfamiliarity and 8 outta 10 for the video.

    Deja Boo and JP Liz V1


    Johnny Cash – Hurt




    This is such a good song, just love the lyrics and how Cash sings it. I’d never really paid attention to the video before because, frankly I didn’t think I needed to. I do love how it looks back on his career and the regret over certain parts in sync with the song. Does it improve the song? Not really much it can improve on tbf!!
    9 for the song, 6 for the video.

    You Need to Calm Down - Taylor Swift



    I’m a huge TayTay fan but interestingly I had kinda forgotten this song existed! I think the song and the video are on a par here, really liking them both. 8 points each! I feel like this should be the anthem for the Current Affairs forum here on Boards lol, just calm the frick down :pac:


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


    Ah Walrus, like a nice warm blanket after that other mayhem elsewhere :pac:


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,066 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    And so that brings us to our final 6 for this round, in no particular order…


    Kolido
    Sawduck
    ShaneU
    Barna77
    Necrina
    fixXxer



    Who hit a home run with their selection, and who struck out before we even get started :P


    As LeVar said elsewhere... obligatory pee and smoke break time :D

    Others saying they found this category tough... This was easy for me. Love this video. It has everything. Ru Paul? Check! queens from Drag Race? Check! The fab four? Check! Todrick Hall? Check! A Taylor/Katy Perry reunion? Check! All my happy things in one place.
    The colours are amazing on the video imo and the story is just perfect :D

    The Offspring - Hit That




    This is not…great. The song is alright like, but when you have to sorta rip off Eiffel 65 for the video I kinda have to wonder why lol. A generous 5 for the track and a measly 3 points for the video… and I’m probably being generous at that.

    Necrina


    Pink - Beautiful Trauma




    I think this is why Necrina wanted to enter this Walrus and tbh I can definitely see why. Track is good.... but is made so, so much better by the video. Channing Tatum in a dress anyone? Just a great choice. 10 outta 10 for the video. 6 and a bit for the song. Nice choice but how will you do in the other rounds…. *sniggers*

    Probably not good! But I'm happy with where this one ranked! :D

    Nikki Minaj – Anaconda





    This is woejaysus bad. Firstly the track is just a rip off (and not a good one at that) of Baby Got Back. Secondly the video is literally just multiple scenes of booty shaking. It’s ok for like a minute but this drags on for almost 5!!! A very generous 2.5 for the song and a 4 for the video, at least it distracts from the terrible song in fairness.

    The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony






    Does seem a somewhat ‘obvious’ choice but it’s a cracker. The song kind of IS the video imo so it definitely personifies the round. 10 for the video, 6 and a half for the song, marked down slightly for overfamiliarity.

    This is a man that would never let me win at anything if he can help it and takes great pleasure in it too. This is why we can't play monopoly! :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,695 ✭✭✭ Sawduck


    Not a good start for me and there are one or two of my picks for the other that I think might finish last, this is going to be a bumpy ride :o


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


    First or last :eek:

    Chemical Bros - Star Guitar





    I *think* I get what you were trying to convey with this entry but unfortunately it just didn’t work for me. It’s literally a guy taking a video from a train… scenery is ok I guess but it doesn’t improve the song really. And while I like Chemical Brothers this wouldn’t be one I’d be firing up when I think of them unfortunately. 4 for the song, 2 for the video.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,066 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    Meaning that....

    ShaneU


    LCD Soundsystem - oh baby




    Good God man, you just broke my heart with this :(:( What an incredible video, absolutely heartbreaking. The first minute or so I wasn’t gone on because I hadn’t the foggiest where it was going but then I was just hooked. The song is just sidetracked by the video which is kind of what I was really thinking of when it came to this round – the top three here have captured that the best imo. Anyways, 8 for the track and a big fat 10 for the video. Great pick!


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


    All the scenery represents the different beats in the song, did you not get that Necro? Great video. (Chemical brothers)

    Don't worry. I almost certain my pick for the Star Wars clip will not only have me finishing last, but also have a target on my back from every Star Wars fan.

    I hope it's the Star Trek theme... :D

    We'll aim for Round 2 about the same time tomorrow I think... don't think there's anything else on...

    Oh that would have been genius... Why didn't I think of this?


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,066 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    I’m a big fan of music in games, be that created specifically for the game or indeed licensed tracks appearing in franchises such as FIFA etc. RPG music in particular I’d be a big fan of… so kudos to anyone thinking along those lines…

















    Was very surprised some of these weren't entered tbh :D

    But how did y'all do? Find out tomorrow at 9pm!
