    Lionel Richie - Hello - overrated artist

    Lukas Graham - 7 years

    Arcade Fire - No cars go - another overrated artist

    I like the last two songs to much to vote either one



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Everybody Vs Hello Abstain (Both good)

    Luke’s Graham - 7 years (Awful tripe)

    The Killers - Human (Despise it and it’s grammatically incorrect)

    Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood (Never got the hype at all for this and that’s the perfect reason for a vote in this comp)

    Back Street Boys - Everybody Vs Lionel Richie - Hello - A very average song that stuck in the mind probably because of the awful video

    Lukas Graham - 7 years Vs Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

    Arcade Fire - No cars go Vs The Killers - Human

    Don McClean - American Pie Vs Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood

    The Beatles - Get Back Vs U2 - Without or Without You

    Always U2!


    Prince - Purple Rain Vs Meatloaf - Two out of three ain't bad

    Not the biggest fan of Meatloaf, but that one isn't too bad. Not really a fan of Prince.


    Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes - Senorita Vs The Beatles - Love Me Do

    pass


    Elton John - Candle in the wind Vs Simply Red - Stars

    Hate it! Original CitW was pretty good. The Diana remix was awful though, so it'd be a close thing if that's the one I was voting on (at work, can't listen to YouTube link to decide which one it was).


    Back Street Boys - Everybody Vs Lionel Richie - Hello

    Awful song!


    Lukas Graham - 7 years Vs Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

    Don't know the song, but Queen is fantastic!


    Arcade Fire - No cars go Vs The Killers - Human

    pass


    Don McClean - American Pie Vs Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood

    Bloody love American Pie so long as it's not Madonna singing it.

    Some unbalanced ties here. Sk8er boi is really underrated IMO; a cracking tune. So MGMT for me there.


    Thriller is fantastic and deserves its reputation, so Pink.


    Pass on the third - don't know either.


    And Billie Eilish on the last



  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Avril Lavigne - Sk8r Boi ; good, but not one of her best

    P!nk - What About Us ; its fine, she has far better songs though

    Extreme - More than Words ; meh, never got the appeal of this one, it was fine if it had stayed in its lane and been somewhat popular for a year or two in the early '90s, but by no means is it a song anyone should still be held in any sort of esteem over 30 years later. Didn't nominate this one, but could see it being a contender to win the tournament for me

    Billie Eilish - Bad Guy ; much like Avril and P!nk, its grand, but Billie has far superior songs than this

    And if it still makes any difference, Extreme

    MGMT, worst live gig ever



  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Van Morrison - Bright side of the road ; Van has some good songs, but this is mediocre at best, and hugely overrated. I wouldn't consider Blurred Lines overrated - it was everywhere for a couple of months, but hasn't stood the test of time and has been largely forgotten about.

    The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) ; I've actually warmed to this in recent years, but hated it for a long time, and even though I enjoy it now, it's still very overrated, whereas I love VideoGames.

    Cher - Believe ; I don't really think either are overrated, and if it was up against a lot of others it wouldn't be getting my vote, but I haven't abstained from any match-ups yet regardless of difficult decisions, so I won't start now. Walk of Life is the superior song, so I'll reluctantly vote for Believe.

    Bob Marley - Could you be Loved ; never been mad about Bob Marley, as an artist I think he's quite a bit overrated.

    Christina Perri - Jar Of Hearts ; never warmed to this song, she has another song, A Thousand Years, which is far superior, yet this is the one that keeps showing up in games around here, and its only tolerable at best.

    Van Morrison - Bright side of the road Vs Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines

    Van is such a prat, when I saw him in concert, rude as hell. But he also writes very decent songs, so can't vote for that song as overrated. Blurred Lines probably isn't either as everyone knows it's crap, or should anyway.


    Lana del Rey - Videogames Vs The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)

    Sorry, uncool it may be, but I love that Proclaimers song.


    Dire Straits - Walk of Life Vs Cher - Believe

    Autotune nightmare. And I really like Dire Straits.


    Bob Marley - Could you be Loved Vs The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony

    Oh, that's a tough one. I really like Bob but I guess it's one of his more overrated songs. I love Bittersweet Symphony so couldn't vote for it.


    Christina Perri - Jar Of Hearts Vs Arctic Monkeys - When The Sun Goes Down

    pass, I don't know either of these songs.

    Adele - Hello ; I really like Hello, but can't have Smells Like Teen Spirit advancing, the fact that it was even nominated is blasphemous

    Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You ; Dolly's version is better

    Marc McCabe - Maniac 2000 ; it's a sh*t cover of a great song, even if I do enjoy it when it comes on

    Disturbed - Sound Of Silence ; not as good as the original, and Mr. Brightside is an anthem
