GNFPWLBN song elimination: Round 1

Postby Gregg » Mon Jun 08, 2015 6:27 pm

So now on to "Good News". Off the bat, I'm going to maybe cause a little controversy and remove three tracks from the vote as I don't see the point in having them there. The only one that even resembles a song would be "Interlude (Milo)", but let's be honest, it's a filler track and would have probably been eliminated first anyway. I don't think I'll get too much push back on dropping "Horn Intro" and "Dig Your Grave".

The rules:

1. You are voting for the song you like / listen to the least on the album.
2. You have 48 hours to cast your vote for a song. You can change you vote at any point during those 48 hours.
3. In the event of a tie, there will be a special tie breaker round between those songs over 24 hours. In the event that the tie breaker round ends in a tie, we will just end the round as such.
4. In the final round you are voting for the song you like / listen to the most on the album.

Voting for float on to go first. Compared to these songs it's the worst even though I'm sure dance hall will go first.

I'll have a hard time between bury me with it and bukowski though.

Also, are we not doing no one's first?

Good call. Although I kinda wanted to see the overwhelming vote to eliminate Horn Intro :lol:

Its a shame Dance Hall will be out so early, its honestly one of my favorites from this album, even though its often ranked as one of their worst songs ever. It's so much angst and just a real fun song!

I thought "I've Got it All(Most)" was part of Good News. I didn't remember it was some kind of bonus song on the CD that I bought back then.

By the way, I'm sad to see "One Chance" could be out very early. I didn't know it was not liked by most fans ?

Wow! I didn't know either... I really like One Chance... Probably close to my top 7 on this album...
