        This was at least partially my fault. Just sent my scores.
        Your Billboard Top Ten: #1 Stay (not the Rihanna one)

        Your heart is coloured with the love wrapped in the brilliant blue sky above, the breadth of the jewelled oceans, and the pure heat of the golden sun. And your heart is home to the cosmic creation that is you.

                Had to use your save card (next round would've been the last to use anyway). You just need to ensure to submit next round. ;)

                  • Results are in! Here is Gwen Stefani ft. Eve with Rich Girl.

                    ROUND 7 - CA$H MON€ - RESULTS

                    Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar [Cheapthrills]
                    LEO: Good song and Aloe delivers a good performance, although sometimes I feel he lacks some depth in his voice. 3.5
                    JSPARKSFAN: Assignment complete, but not particularly well. This dawdled. 3
                    WAYNE: Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar - brilliant selection, haven't heard this in a long time and it still sounds fresh with a killer vocal/tune. I award the song 5.0 points.

                    Bing Crosby - Brother Can You Spare A Dime? [sonia85]
                    LEO: Interesting choice, although the song itself is not amazing. 4.5
                    JSPARKSFAN: Not at all enthralling despite the promising title. 3.5
                    WAYNE: Bing Crosby - Brother Can You Spare A Dime? - inspired choice, with the song's theme based squarely on the US Great Depression of the 1930s. Incredible that this song will be 100 years old in 10ish years. I award the song 5.0 points.

                    Bleachers - Don't Take The Money [flopho]
                    LEO: I love this one. Great entry! 6
                    JSPARKSFAN: I certainly had muted expectations for this, but 'twas an exciting, uplifting melody. Loved the spright energy of this. 5
                    WAYNE: Bleachers - Don't Take The Money - the video irritated me with the song not getting started until over a minute in and that stupid interlude bit where it stops, but enjoyed the song quite a bit. Haven't heard this before and obvious link to the theme. I award the song 4.5 points.

                    DAWN - MONEY [Colbie]
                    LEO: Wow, amazing entry!!! 5.5
                    JSPARKSFAN: Upbeat if slightly repetitive. Not bad, though. 4
                    WAYNE: DAWN - MONEY - I'll give it 3 points as there's a clear link to the theme and 0.5 points as I really didn't like it that much. I award the song 3.5 points.

                    Delta Goodrem - Billionaire [Spartan]
                    LEO: Delta is hit&miss for me. Here is a massive HIT. Such a different sound from her! 5.5
                    JSPARKSFAN: A bit of a frantic song for my liking. 3.5
                    WAYNE: Delta Goodrem - Billionaire - it's alright, but it's not a Delta favourite. Still, it's an obvious link to the theme so I award the song 4.0 points.

                    Fergie ft. Ludacris - Glamorous [Affillate]
                    LEO: I feel this is a last minute fast choice just to submit something without much thought. IT's Fergie best song probably. Still a 3
                    JSPARKSFAN: A fine throwback! 5.5
                    WAYNE: Fergie ft. Ludacris - Glamorous - this reminds me of GTA. love this song, great to listen to when the sun's out and you're driving. Probably her best song as well. I award the song 5.0 points.

                    Fitz and the Tantrums - MoneyGrabber [navi]
                    LEO: Catchy, but nce it's over I completely forgot how this sounded. Good one anyway. 4.5
                    JSPARKSFAN: Funky and fun. Definitely a memorable hook. 4
                    WAYNE: Fitz and the Tantrums - MoneyGrabber - omg, I haven't heard this in years! Terrific song, with so much character and an inspired link to the theme - I award the song 5.5 points (favourite song of the round).

                    Hall & Oates - Rich Girl [Thriller]
                    LEO: Enjoyed this retro feeling. 5
                    JSPARKSFAN: Simple song, but such a rich melody. Toast of the round for me. 6
                    WAYNE: Hall & Oates - Rich Girl - this was the song I thought someone would select, it's a classic. I award the song 5.0 points.


                    Scores Round 7
                    Hall & Oates - Rich Girl [Thriller] 16
                    Bleachers - Don't Take The Money [flopho] 15.5
                    Fitz and the Tantrums - MoneyGrabber [navi] 14
                    Fergie ft. Ludacris - Glamorous [Affillate] 13.5
                    Bing Crosby - Brother Can You Spare A Dime? [sonia85] 13
                    DAWN - MONEY [Colbie] 13
                    Delta Goodrem - Billionaire [Spartan] 13
                    Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar [Cheapthrills] 11.5
                    R6 R7 R6 & R7 Total
                    Thriller 14.5 16 30.5
                    navi 14.5 14 28.5
                    flopho 12.5 15.5 28
                    sonia 85 14.5 13 27.5
                    Spartan 14 13 27
                    Colbie 12.5 13 25.5
                    cheapthrills 14 11.5 25.5
                    Affillate 10.5 13.5 24
                    Trebor's safe pass avoids an exit, but in a bit of a shock Elimination, a wonky song choice sees cheapthrills out along with Colbie in the Double Elimination. Cheapthrills had quite a few rounds at the top of the round, while Colbie has been hanging in the game for the last couple. Colbie actually selected this song originally before changing, and cheapthrills submitted it after. Thanks for playing with your entries!

                    JSparksFan also managed to rate Yazoo's Nobody's Diary from last round again with this lot, this time giving it a 5, citing "Great song, though its link to the theme is debatable". . Wayne also revised the score for Delta from 4.5 to 4.0.

                    Thriller has song of the round with Hall & Oates' 'Rich Girl'. This was later covered/remade by Australian Popstars alum Selwyn in 2002. Here is a live version from the 2002 ARIA Awards also.

                    Round 8 Theme Coming Up soon.
