  • GROUP A = 8.125/10
    4 Foster The People - Call It What You Want: 9.2/10 - great song I've enjoyed for a long time. Love its chorus.
    3 Will Young - Faithless Love: 8.8/10 - one of the top Lexicon tracks. I like the lyrics.
    2 Purple Disco Machine - Emotion: 7.5/10 - good.
    1 MANILA GREY - Silver Skies: 7/10 - chill.

    GROUP B = 7.725/10
    Leslie Clio - Trying Times: 9/10 - great lyrics!
    t.A.T.u. – Sacrifice: 7.6/10 - love the passion.
    (G)i-DLE - Uh oh: 7.5/10 - catchy.
    Zoot Woman ft Kylie Minogue - Still Feels Like The First Time: 6.8/10 - underwhelming.

    GROUP C = 7.5/10
    Ramin Karimloo - Waving Through A Window: 8/10 - very much in my lane of music. I love how it builds.
    Mango - Glamonejai: 8/10 - pleasant!
    Cassandre - Ma Révolution: 7/10 - good.
    Dreamworld - Movin’ Up: 7/10 - a bit repetitive and basic, but not terrible.

    GROUP D = 7.25/10
    4 Gerard Joling - Ticket To The Tropics: 8/10 - the last part of the chorus is clunky, but I love the light, summery melody.
    3 Ashley Tisdale - Love Me & Let Me Go: 7.5/10 - good!
    2 Janelle Monae - Dance Apocalyptic: 7.5/10 - not Janelle's best, but I like it.
    1 Denzel Curry - RICKY: 6/10 - memorable chorus, but weak lyrics. This is the kind of sound that's uber popular nowadays, and I don't care for it.
    Akini's Top 400 Songs of the 2010s: [Starting soon]

    The forest was shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the axe, for the axe was clever and convinced the trees that because his handle was made of wood, he was one of them.

      After coming runner up song of the round a few times, Wayne finally tops the round with Foster The People.

      There were a few ties this round, with (G)i-DLE and Will Young finishing equal tenth of the round. No Tiebreaks in the overall leaderboard this round, Wayne and Silentdream holding fort at the top 2 positions and a pretty balanced split of rise/fall by one or a few places elsewhere. The biggest jump comes from Tansike, leaping into 7th from 9th.

      There were various states of video/audio quality with my choice again this round, Ended up going with the rage rip again (which Gagarazzi recognised) but anyways. Catchy 90's Eurodance song from from Swedish band Dreamworld (which charted Top 20 in Australia in 1996).

      ROUND 6 COMING SOON

      • One I know of this round has a video now, so added it instead of the just the audio link provided, if that's cool with the mixtaper.

                    • Group A:

                      4. Ladytron - The Island [Great electropop!]
                      3. Hard - You In Me [I really enjoyed this apart from the rap which came out of nowhere and didn't suit the song in my opinion, it was too hard]
                      2. Orville Peck - Turn To Hate [Decent enough, but I preferred when he sang in a higher register. Some of the low notes were a little too low for his range and were weaker]
                      1. Koda Kumi - Moon Crying [Dramatic as fuq! The video looked like a Bold and Beautiful episode]

                      Group B:

                      4. Au/Ra - Dance In The Dark [I loved this! Added it straight away to my Spotify playlist]
                      3. Chromatics - You're No Good [Interesting song. The colours of the video had me kind of hypnotised]
                      2. The Jacksons - Torture [Very of its time. Pleasant vocals but not a stand out track]
                      1. MIS - Princas [Do I hear a sample of 'It's my party'?? They all sounded like solo singers mashed together]

                      Group C:

                      4. Mutya Keisha Siobhan - Flatline [When I saw the video I thought "They look and sound a lot like the Sugababes". Turns out they are. Decent song but nothing compared to their earlier work]
                      3. RuPaul - Main Event [I would like the song more with a different vocalist]
                      2. Anthony Callea - Per Sempre (For Always) [Giving me mid 2000s Australian vibes. Great vocals, but a bit too theatrical for me]
                      1. Helen Reddy - Angie Baby [First thing I thought was 'white people music', not that there's anything wrong with that! Very very of its time]

                      Group C:

                      4. Vanessa Amorosi - Hello Me [I have to give 4 points to this Aussie legend! Nice song too! She deserves to be more successful]
                      3. Rachel Platten - Shivers [A simple and inoffensive pop song]
                      2. Nadine Lustre & James Reid [Nice vocals but a little slow]
                      1. Frank Sinatra - Send In The Clowns [I've always found Frank overrated]

                            4 - Au/Ra - Dance In The Dark [Underrated bop. Should have been her breakthrough this year]
                            3 - The Jacksons - Torture [I'm not too familiar with The Jacksons Discography so I never heard this before but it sounds really strong!]
                            2 - Chromatics - You're No Good

                            3 - Helen Reddy - Angie Baby [Really enjoyed it - incredible to think this is already 45 years old!]
                            2 - Mutya Keisha Siobhan - Flatline

                            4 - Rachel Platten - Shivers [Yas! Love her album "Waves", one of the most underrated pop albums of the last few years. "Shivers" is definitely one of many highlights there]
                            3 - Vanessa Amorosi - Hello Me [Really strong and modern pop song. A shame she seems to be unknown these days, as I would love to hear something like this on the charts]

                                      • GROUP A
                                        4 Koda Kumi - Moon Crying
                                        (this is really chill. I like her Final Fantasy songs. This could fit right in with those)
                                        3 Kard - You in me (catchy)
                                        2 Ladytron - The Island (great electronic backing track)
                                        1 Orville Peck - Turn to Hate (the chorus is nice)

                                        GROUP B
                                        4 Au/Ra - Dance In The Dark (this was really interesting, the chorus and the build ups. I could see Billie Eilish maybe doing something similar to this)
                                        3 The Jacksons - Torture (this was groovy. Looked it up because it had a bit of 80's feel and sure enough this was released the year after Thriller. It also has a video, which I will link up.
                                        2 Chromatics - You're No Good (nice)
                                        1 MIS - Princas (this was catchy)

                                        GROUP C
                                        4 Anthony Callea - Per Sempre (For Always) (Anthony does well with the operatic ballads and gratuitous Italian, It sounds a little like it was trying a little to recreate the success of The Prayer from the same album but is different in its own way at the same time)
                                        3 RuPaul - Main Event (this really got going as it went along)
                                        2 Mutya Keisha Siobhan - Flatline - (this was a nice chill listen too these bottom 2 might've placed higher in another group)
                                        1 Helen Reddy - Angie Baby (nice and laid back)

                                        GROUP D
                                        4 Rachel Platten - Shivers (This is catchy, giving me slight Carly Rae Jepsen vibes as well)
                                        3 Vanessa Amorosi - Hello Me (nice track, its got bit more of a dance lean than Heavy Lies The Head she also released this year which was a rockier sound)
                                        2 Nadine Lustre & James Reid - Summer (this was a nice laid back one too)
                                        1 Frank Sinatra - Send In The Clowns (nice, the setting to Joker gives it a different dimension and take)
