  • 1 Linda Ronstadt - Blue Bayou: 9/10 - oh my, this was so smooth.
    2 Will Young - Friday's Child: 9/10 - lengthy, but beautiful. Absolutely love the chorus.
    3 Sinead O'Connor - Fire On Babylon: 8.5/10 - come thru, emotion!
    4 INXS - Elegantly Wasted: 8.5/10 - classy!
    5 Chaka Khan - The End of a Love Affair: 8/10 - good, but I must admit that Chaka's been found wanting this round.
    6 Ane Brun - Rubber & Soul (feat. Teitur): 8/10 - lovely.

        JSparks and myself for submitting Chaka and Sinead! both artist battled but couldn't change their fate. Chaka got Song of the round TWICE with R1 I Feel for You and R5 Ain't Nobody, which in fact is the song that got the lowest score in a round! Sinead never got a SofR which may explain her departure now, although there is one of the finalists that also hasn't score any!

                Just want to say thanks to Leo again for this competition. I really enjoyed delving into everyone's entries, and even discovered some new songs for Linda, including this one, which I thought was a fitting song for her to end on. Never Tear Us Apart is an absolute classic. I wish What You Need had made an appearance - I love that one so much. Will Young's video, as so many of them have been, was really entertaining, and I actually thought this was a perfect final entry for Ane.

                I wish Chaka could have made it this far as well. - what a great final entry that was submitted for her. From the limbo crowd, I most enjoyed: Tina Arena, which some fun bounce and tension to it; LaFee's alternation of talk-sing with rocking out; and Mylene - her entry, which reminded me a little of Bjork (and had an entertaining video as well like all of them) - really my favorite thing I think I've heard from her.

                I associate Oh Yeah with Ferris Bueller I guess you couldn't really end with anything else for him!

                • 2 Will Young - Who Am I (great one, was not expecting that chorus tbh, love it)

                  3 Linda Ronstadt - Different Drum (enjoyed this)

                  1 Ane Brun - The Puzzle (love this, weird melody/structure, but keep thinking I should’ve went with a emotional ballad type of song for closure.

                  4 INXS - Never Tear Us Apart (not really into them)

                  Loved the 1-3 songs

                      • 1 Will Young - Who Am I - giving it to my boy Will, gorgeous and understated song.
                        2 Ane Brun - The Puzzle - she’s been one of my favourite discoveries of the whole game, great consistency in terms of quality music submitted.
                        3 Linda Ronstadt - Different Drum - love this, love her.
                        4 INXS - Never Tear Us Apart - this is not one of my favourite songs generally, it’s alright.

                            • 01. Ane Brun - The Puzzle [FAVE]
                              02. INXS - Never Tear Us Apart
                              03. Will Young - Who Am I
                              04. Linda Ronstadt - Different Drum

                              Clear winner in the final for me. But to be fair, I put Ane Brun at #1 in so many rounds, definitely the biggest discovery for me personally (side note: she released a new album last week and it's the first album I listened from her & it's beautiful!). INXS was also a nice discovery, as I read a lot about them but never knew what their music was, and it's good music!

                              Will started off strong, but got weaker through the Cup IMO. Still, now I know why he has some big fans, especially enjoyed his videos! Cool to finally got to know Linda, one of those "veteran" artists I read about, but didn't really know until now.

                                • 1. Ane Brun - The Puzzle (a return to form with this one - her voice is sublime)
                                  2. INXS - Never Tear Us Apart (a classic, slightly overrated but a good one nonetheless)
                                  3. Will Young - Who Am I (loved the chorus)
                                  4. Linda Ronstadt - Different Drum (sweet song)

                                    I think she released two albums within a two month period. Quarantine creativity maybe? This song is one of my favourites.

                                      • 1 Will Young - Who Am I: 8.2/10 - simple, but tender and beautiful. There's an emotional vocal moment towards the end that I loved.
                                        2 INXS - Never Tear Us Apart: 8/10 - I feel like I've liked most of the INXS songs I've heard and this is another quality one from them.
                                        3 Ane Brun - The Puzzle: 7.5/10 - good, but not memorable.
                                        4 Linda Ronstadt - Different Drum: 7.5/10 - good, but a plain and forgettable, though.

                                          Congratulations Affillate for taking home the #1 spot with INXS!!!! The amazing australian band managed to stay in the top albums all through the game and is a deserved winner!!!

                                          Thanks all the rest for joining and giving me the pleasureof hosting this legacy game! To follow the steps of Wardo and Carbon (I don't remember if there were other hosts) is a BIG honour and I didn't want to end my run in ukmix without hosting this! An Album Cup and a Mariah Survivor, and I am about to complete both!!! But don't worry, I am enjoying ukmix a lot

                                          It was a very changing game, I liked that, although the last two rounds were so tight that there were no big changes ni the top. Thanks all, take care and see you around!!!!!

                                            • Thanks for doing a fabulous job of hosting this Leo!

                                              I enjoyed participating in this, a couple of artists in particular who I’ve enjoyed listening to (Ane Brun was great throughout, loved Linda Ronstadt).

                                              Well done Affilate - genius saving one of INXS most well known songs to the very end.
