Thought I had my PM saved for this so I'd remember what I entered.

Turns out I didn't.

Not sure if good or bad yet :/

Ooph, then my apologies because if I'd known that it might have gottena few more points from me. I mean I'm not a big fan of the sound but I am more impressed to know that.

In 2nd place place is Spoiler: Necro with the following



MrK
Not wild about the song anyway and think this might be the absolute anti-study song that I could’ve chosen. If I had been able to think of a bogey song for this category it would have been this!

Barney
Like the song and have worked to it in the past, but I didn't think it was a great one to work to. I sort of have to be in the mood for it

I'm sorry to say that in 15th place, scoring 1 point is Spoiler: Spook_ie with the following



MrK
Unfortunately for the sender this would be my anti-study song. I don't really like it at all.

Barney
The song is okay for me, but not fantastic. I couldn't study to it but I might be able to work to it. I know some people love it but it's not really for me.

Which means that we have reached the end of the night's reveal and our first round is over, or at least it will be by the end of this post.

Our glorious leader after round one is Spoiler: Ectoplasm who provided this frankly delightful entry



MrK
Absolutely beautiful piece. Definitely never listened to it in its entirety before. Exactly the type of music that I could leave on it the background.

Barney
Oh what a tune, contest closed. That piano is magical. It is energetic but not too distracting. This is exactly the sort of thing I could study and work to and be happy.

Well done Ecto, nice choice. Thanks Barney & Mr K for a fine reveal. Can I ask that you title the tracks for when we're on mobile and can't click the YouTube links to listen in?

Some great artists included tonight.

Of course, we'll do that for the rest. MrK might use a different style to me when he takes over for the reveal of round 2, but I'll get him to put them in.

Well done Barney and a very well done to Ecto. That was quiet an easy winner for me.

Food related song will be next up on Friday. I’ll post up the Spotify playlist for this tomorrow

MicksJaguar - I actually don't think I've seen the film in full from start to finish as I was working in a cinema when it came out and just caught bits and pieces here and there so this song must've slipped by me, but it is a beautiful piece of music; it feels like if Sigur Rós and Clannad had a baby, which is probably one of the highest compliments I can pay a piece of music. Nice choice.

and...

Green&Red - hadn't heard this before and love it already; would've ranked very highly for me personally (based on the songs that have been revealed so far anyway), definitely up my street.

also shoutout to...

necrina - definitely something I'd listen to to get pumped for an exam, maybe a bit overplayed when it was first released, but good track none the less.
And some more highlights following the rest of this round's reveal...

Trigger - Based on Barney's gif I'm guessing this is from Greatest Showman? Still haven't gotten about to seeing it, but this song is class. Great choice.

Drumpot - love Foals, had actually considered My Number for another category, but this is another great one.

Phatkev - I mentioned Sigur Rós earlier, and definitely get some of those vibes here too; a beautiful piece of music and a great discovery.

Spook_ie - think you got given a raw deal here. I've 100% studied to this song and listened to it prior to an exam to get me in the right headspace.

Ectoplasm - a deserving winner of this round for sure. It's a haunting piece of music. Well done! Credit where it's due.

Well done ecto, nice piece.

What round you planning to do next?

I really like my song this round. Think it’s one that does grow on you. And disagree about the lyrics barney they mightn’t be much but love how fragile and vulnerable it sounds

That was more of a we're back gif, it's not from the film. Any song from that film would have gone down a treat with me by the way.
