FYI: I have just shared all real names with tusk as he believes he is able to maintain the anonymity of the contest himself, without the airgap I was supplying.

Huge thanks to sKeith for his help on this, and his commitment to maintaining integrity in the anonymous nature of the game.

To expand on how I've kept this completely anon:
  • Each round was separated into its own sheet.
  • Fake names were immediately hidden.
  • Each round was sorted by alphabetical song name to hide fake name row patterns.
  • When finished scoring each round, I'll show the fake names from that sheet only.
  • Real names will be mapped to fake names in that sheet only.
  • Reveal for that round begins.
  • Remaining rounds stay anon by virtue of me not knowing the fake names, and not knowing the order of the fake names within each row, within each sheet.

I’m quite excited for this tusk. Loved the categories but gave a speed entry.

This seems like a properly professional job

Oh lads, the joy and excitement in my little heart. ROUND 1 IS COMPLETE!!!!

Let the games begin...



A quick note too:

I know music is very personal and it can hurt when someone dances on your choices. Some of my comments might be harsh, but that's just because I'm so intense about my music. I still love you all xxx

REVEAL 1 BEGINS



14 points to TNT-Crew Spoiler: Vale for Stereophonics - Dakota.

My notes:

Listen 1: Like it. I've heard it before, but not necessarily paid much attention to it. It's got a bit of belt in it, but not enough to push it higher unfortunately. Solid tune though. I don't think I'd turn it off if it came on.

Listen 2: Yeah grand song, not bad, not great. I like the chorus riff, pretty sweet. But other than that it's mostly just ok.

13 points to Automation - Spoiler: kitten_k for Luther Vandross - Dancing with My Father

Notes:

Listen 1; nice tune. I like it. smooth as heck. I'm hoping for some power push at some point... if it comes, it likely gets 2 extra points. It didn't come

Listen 2: Nice beat, nice vocals. I can see where the emotion could be found in this. Yep, there it is. nice. Feel ripe for a bit of a belty bridge later on, hope it shows up. I could listen to this again, no bother. Will likely check out some more by this dude. Oh here's the belt....Oh that was short. Ah disappointing belt. If he'd have gone on for a bit more with that, it would have been special. unfortunate.

15 points to Revolution - Spoiler: OurLordAndSaviourSKEITH for Queen - Radio Ga Ga

Notes:


Listen1: a classic. how can you not like a bit of freddy. It's a super tune, but too well known to get to the top. Not one of my favourite Queen songs, but still a classic for sure.

Listen2: Not gonna give this a second listen. It's gettin 7 off the bat, dunno what I gave it last time, but here we are.

A note on the scoring system... I scored each song out of 10, twice, with the scores and notes from listen 1 hidden during listen 2. I combined the two scores to get a total and that built up the general lay of the scores and positions. Though some were moved up and down a bit as a did final scores.
