  • [Survivor] Alisha's Attic Survivor - RESULT

    It's straight out of one survivor and into another! However, this one is for a far less internationally famous act.

    Alisha's Attic consisted of Karen and Shelly Poole - the two daughters of 60s singer Brian Poole (of the Tremeloes fame). They had three albums, comprising 40 tracks in all, and a decade ago, their dozen or so hit singles were put together in a tiny survivor. So, this time around, it's time to consider all 40 tracks. I know there's a number of fans on here (Thriller, I'm particularly tagging you, and also SholasBoy) and I'm hoping some others might be up for discovering their music.

    So - here's the full list.

    Irresistible You Are
    Intense
    I Am, I Feel
    Indestructible
    Alisha Rules The World
    White Room
    Stone In My Shoe
    Personality Lines
    I Won't Miss You
    The Golden Rule
    Just The Way U Like It
    Air We Breathe
    Adore U
    The Incidentals
    Going Down
    Shameless
    Resistor
    Air and Angels
    Wish I Were You
    Me and the Dolphins
    Barbarella
    Are You Jealous?
    Lazy Head
    Do I Lie?
    Karmically Close
    Dive In
    Lay Low
    Outta These Clouds
    Sex Is On Everyone's Tongue
    Can't Say Sorry
    Push It All Aside
    Pilot
    The House That We Built
    Pretender Got My Heart
    That Other Girl
    Perfectly Happy
    She Ain't Missing You
    If You Want Me Back
    Devil You Call Love
    Dreaming

    So - in order to let people have chance to discover the songs - let's make this up into groups for the first few rounds.

    Indestructible
    The Golden Rule
    Adore U
    The Incidentals
    Resistor
    Dive In
    Sex Is On Everyone's Tongue
    Can't Say Sorry
    Pilot
    Dreaming

    Rank the 10 songs above in order - 10=favourite. The four with the fewest votes will get the boot.

        I'm hoping we might get a few more voters as we get further through this, but great to have Metalweb joining in.

        So - let's get on with another round - and lose four tracks at this point. Without a doubt, IMHO, their greatest album is their debut. However, it does have a couple of "miss" tracks on it, and therefore, losing "The Golden Rule" at this point is no real loss. Joining it are two tracks from the third album - "Dreaming" and "Pilot", and finally another track from the debut album which is no real loss. Farewell to "Adore U"



        37. Adore U
        38. Pilot
        39. Dreaming
        40. The Golden Rule

        Personality Lines
        I Won't Miss You
        Air We Breathe
        Shameless
        Karmically Close
        Lay Low
        Outta These Clouds
        The House That We Built
        Pretender Got My Heart
        Devil You Call Love

        Once again, rank the 10 songs above in order - 10=favourite. The four with the lowest scores will get the boot.​​​​​​

                Oooh - great to see cheapthrills join myself and Metalweb in this survivor. Things definitely starting to take shape now.

                It's the middle album - "Illumina" - which is by far the biggest casualty this round. There's 4 songs from that album featuring, and we lose three of them - "Outta These Clouds", "Shameless" and "Karmically Close". The fourth song we lose is from the third album - "Devil You Call Love".



                33. Devil You Call Love
                34. Adore U
                35. Pilot
                36. Karmically Close
                37. Dreaming
                38. Shameless
                39. Outta These Clouds
                40. The Golden Rule

                Irresistible You Are

                That Other Girl
                If You Want Me Back

                Once again, rank the 10 songs above in order - 10=favourite. The four with the lowest scores will get the boot.​​​​​​

                      Unfortunately, three of these are geo-limited and I'm having a hard time finding the song through googling. For those, I just averaged the other two scores and made that the score since I had songs I did want to vote for. Hopefully, I can find a version the next time they roll around (I bolded the three I couldn't find.)

                          Hopefully nothing too major is geolimited. For some of the album tracks there's probably relatively few versions on YouTube. Thanks for doing some searching, InFamous !

                            Well that was a rather more dramatic round than most. A few songs we disagree on, and in the end, a couple of songs leave despite voters ranking them top 4. Six songs progress, and it's two from each album.​​​​​​​

                            So - first song out from "Illumina" is "Do I Lie". First song out from "Alisha Rules The World" is "Just The Way U Like It". Both of those are pretty obvious safe bets to get the boot this round.

                            Then, we lose a second from "Illumina" as cheapthrills' vote was not enough to save "Lazy Head". For years, I thought they were saying "Sleep like... Shaun the Sheep and..." rather than "Sleep like fish on a sea bed"!

                            Finally, we lose a second song from "Alisha Rules The World". I love it, it's the opener of the album, but it's a bit of a short one, so I guess that didn't help it. Farewell to "Irresistible You Are"



                            29. Irresistible You Are
                            30. Devil You Call Love
                            31. Lazy Head
                            32. Adore U
                            33. Pilot
                            34. Karmically Close
                            35. Just The Way U Like It
                            36. Dreaming
                            37. Shameless
                            38. Outta These Clouds
                            39. The Golden Rule
                            40. Do I Lie?

                            So - one more batch.

                            Me and the Dolphins
                            Are You Jealous?
                            Push It All Aside
                            Perfectly Happy
                            She Ain't Missing You

                            Once again, rank the songs, 10=favourites. The four with the lowest scores will be out.

                                Thanks for helping, InFamous - unfortunately they gave me video unavailable errors :(

                                Unfortunately matthew_dixon it's even worse this time. Just clicked on them to check and six of them are unavailable for me :( I'll abstain unless I can find versions online.

                                  Found a mixture of lyrics videos and also some live TV performances. I'm expecting a few of those to go far, so would be good for you to hear them.

                                      That's odd. I checked them with a US VPN before I posted.

                                            and that brings us to the end of the first pass. A far quicker one to go through than my last survivor!

                                            Anyway - it was a reasonably clear cut result this time around - as four songs were ranked bottom half by all of us, and those are the ones we lose. First up, from "Illumina" - "Me and the Dolphins", then from "The House We Built" we lose "Perfectly Happy". "Are You Jealous?" is also down from "Illumina" and finally "She Ain't Missing You" is a second one out from "The House We Built".



                                            So - here we go, 16 songs have got the boot, leaving us with our top 24.

                                            25. Irresistible You Are
                                            26. Devil You Call Love
                                            27. Lazy Head
                                            28. Adore U
                                            29. She Ain't Missing You
                                            30. Are You Jealous?
                                            31. Perfectly Happy
                                            32. Pilot
                                            33. Karmically Close
                                            34. Just The Way U Like It
                                            35. Me and the Dolphins
                                            36. Dreaming
                                            37. Shameless
                                            38. Outta These Clouds
                                            39. The Golden Rule
                                            40. Do I Lie?

                                            So, we started off with 13 tracks from the debut album, and we're down to 9. The second album has more dramatically been culled from 15 songs to 8. The third album has gone from 12 songs to 7. In general, IMHO we're down to pretty much the right songs. I think we need to do one more pass through the songs in groups, as there's still people who are pretty unfamiliar with the songs.

                                            Push It All Aside
                                            Pretender Got My Heart
                                            That Other Girl

                                            Rank the above 8 songs in order, 8=favourite. The THREE with the most votes will go.
