TIALDFSWNTTA song elimination: Final Round

Postby Gregg » Wed Nov 04, 2015 6:04 pm

Remember you're now voting for the track you want to win / like / listen to the most.

I'm going to traveling the next few days, so setting up a new album is going to have to take a back seat. I'm not sure where to go from here. BNOOS would be an obvious choice, but I wonder if we should include songs from all eps or one offs like "Whenever you see fit", "White lies, Yellow teeth", etc? Doing a vote for an EP like Interstate 8 would be a waste as almost all songs would have been covered in other rounds. I don't want to go as far back as SSS and the tapes of that era.

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.

Results:

3. Custom Concern
4. Breakthrough
5. Tundra / Desert
6. Novocain Stain
7. Ohio
8. Lounge
9. Beach Side Property
10. Exit Does Not Exist
11. She Ionizes & Atomizes
12. Make Everyone Happy / Mechanical Birds
13. Space Travel Is Boring
14. Head South
15. Might
16. Dog Paddle

It might be nice when we are all done to take the top 3 from each album and have them go through it.

BNOOS first? Nah, do EP's/Compilations in descending order. NOFaYN, EaHNPT, SSS, BNOoS, (maybe not WYFS, it only has one song), TFTAIS, I8, BC3DYC.

I think Sharpen Your Teeth would be a good song elimination record as well!

I love Talking Shit, but Dramamine just had to win. One of my favorite songs ever.

I also vote for doing a Sharpen Your Teeth elimination as well as the major EP-type releases, No Ones First, Everywhere, SSS, Building Nothing, Fruit. Those would just about cover everything.

Then after all of that's done maybe an ultimate showdown of all of the winning songs from each release?

Is this officially over? I really enjoyed watching how people voted, thanks for putting it together! I think it would be cool to put the top 3 songs from each album against each other to get a grand winner.
