A new Contest...

Post by BigMike » Thu Apr 22, 2004 1:40 pm

OK, we've done Survivor on each album and ended up perhaps with not everyone's favorite song as the winner, but with the song that makes it through the process as being the least annoying to the most people. How about this for a change: Instead of voting a song off, how about having people vote for their favorite five songs, with a weighted point system, to find which songs people like the most.

You vote for your five top favorite songs. #1 gets 10 points, #2 gets 7 points, #3 gets 5 points, #4 gets 3 points, and #5 gets 1 point. There's a premium for songs that are picked highest by more people (an extra point in the rankings). We start with WoN, go to SAF, SMFTA, SFAAM1, SFAAM2, and SMD. Top three in the final rankings for each album then go up in a final vote and we have the overall favorite song.

World of Noise
Your Genius Hands
Sick & Tired
The Laughing World
Fire Maple Song
Pennsylvania Is...
Nervous & Weird
Trust Fund
Loser Makes Good

Voting is open for two weeks for World of Noise. Be sure to clearly identify your order (I.e. 1. FIre Maple Song, 2. Loser Makes Good, etc.)

May the best songs win.

I'm having a hard enough time keeping up with Survivor (I'll defeat you yet, mr. vaughan!), and we have quite a ways to go with that. But this is cool!

1. Loser Makes Good (duh)
2. Sparkle
3. The Laughing World
4. Fire Maple Song
5. Nervous & Weird (the title alone!)

hehe, I started off thinking this would take me just a minute, but I can see this will take quite a chunk of time too. But, without the strategy, backstabbing, and politics of Survivor, I should be fine. :wink:

Inasmuch as no one has commented for a week, we'll declare the voting closed and review the results:

In fifth place, with 18 points, and one first place vote, we have Invisible.

In fourth place, with 30 points, and two first place votes, Sparkle.

I don't believe it - we have a tie for second place, with Fire Maple Song and Evergleam both receiving 34 points in the voting process. To break the tie, we'll look at the number of first place votes, the number of second place votes and whoever has the most in the highest position wins. In this case, Evergleam has two first and two second place votes to two first place and one second place for Fire Maple Song, so it's Fire Maple Song in third and Evergleam in second place.


Interestingly, Loser Makes Good didn't get the most first place votes (only one, three songs got two first place votes each), but it got the most second place votes, which is what put it over the top.

Thank you all for playing. Next up...Sparkle and Fade

Electra Made Me Blind,
Heroin Girl,
You Make Me Feel Like a Whore,
Santa Monica,
Heartspark Dollarsign,
The Twistinside,
Her Brand New Skin,
Queen of the Air,
Pale Green Stars,
Chemical Smile,
My Sexual Life

Voting closes in two weeks or one week after the last vote is received.
