              • Results are in! Here is The Wombats with Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves).

                ROUND 8 - THE CITY - RESULTS

                Blaenavon - Prague '99 [navi]
                LEO: Very interesting entry! A cool discovery. 5.5
                JSPARKSFAN: One on hand, moody soft-rock is a safe choice. On another hand, I'm inclined to not care because it's pretty damn good. Toast of the round for me. 5
                WAYNE: Blaenavon - Prague '99 - not at all conventional, and sounds like two different songs at various points. But overall, I really quite liked it! I’ll award it 4.5 points. 4.5

                Cassandra Steen ft. Adel Tawil - Stadt [trebor]
                LEO: Wow, I remember this song from when it was released and although I know almost no german, I loved this! 6
                JSPARKSFAN: Pleasant listen. 4.5
                WAYNE: Cassandra Steen ft. Adel Tawil - Stadt - being a stickler for the rules, I’m going to mark this down slightly as it doesn’t technically feature a city or town in the title (though Google does assure me that Stadt translates to city). I’ll award the song 3.0 points, it was alright. 3

                Dan Croll - Tokyo [flopho]
                LEO: Third great entry in a row! This round is fire! 5.5
                JSPARKSFAN: Simple but lovely, though slightly repetitive. 4
                WAYNE: Dan Croll - Tokyo - I liked this a lot and pleased someone found a song that links to the 2020 Olympics! I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                Electric Light Orchestra - Last Train To London [Thriller]
                LEO: Ok, a classic. Maybe a little too safe but nice. 4
                JSPARKSFAN: So sonically rich. Great instrumentation. 4.5
                WAYNE: Electric Light Orchestra - Last Train To London - I have a total soft spot ELO and this is just a good song regardless and perfectly fits the theme. I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                MIKA - Sanremo [Spartan]
                LEO: I enjoy Mika, here it's a little uninspirted imo but ok overall. 4
                JSPARKSFAN: Summer-ready and enjoyable. Such a perfect match with the theme. 4.5
                WAYNE: MIKA - Sanremo - song of the round for me, I know the song and I’ve always loved it. I award it 5.5 points. 5.5

                One Direction - Stockholm Syndrome [Affillate]
                LEO: Music by numbers. 3
                JSPARKSFAN: Eh, not loving the link to the theme, but there's no denying the thorough decency of the song. 4
                WAYNE: One Direction - Stockholm Syndrome - this is a total tune, I’ll say it: 1D had some right classics! Good fit to the theme, I award the song 5.0 points. 5

                Scott Walker - Copenhagen [sonia85]
                LEO: I don't like this that much but then, it's a brave choice. 4.5
                JSPARKSFAN: So Christmasy! I liked it. 4
                WAYNE: Scott Walker - Copenhagen - what a voice he had, lovely way to end the round. I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                Scores Round 8

                Affillate 13.5 12 25.5
                navi gets the song of the round this round, whilst next to bottom above myself is sonia85, who is our eliminee for Round 8. Thankyou for playing!

                Trebor made a comeback, divisive with the Judges, Leo gave full points, while it factored into Wayne's judging, picking up on it only describing a city but not particular name, giving mid score of 3.

                Navi's song of the round is below. Top 5 + myself going into Round 9.

                Round 9 Theme Coming Up soon.

                        • at the start of this game i predicted my exit after a few rounds,
                          and now i won 8th round with the indie band and song nobody heard before,
                          plus upon that, it was (which is unbelievable) JSparksFan song of the round,
                          thank you

                          interesting fact
                          Dan Croll - Tokyo was my entry at FSC Dec 2017, and flopho awarded song with 12 points,
                          thank you too

                            Ah awesome. I hadn’t heard it before a couple of months ago but loved it.

                            • ROUND 9 - ANIMALS

                              There are a few songs that talk about Animals in General, such as the linked Savage Garden number. Round 9's Theme however like last round will be Songs that feature a SPECIFIC Animal/s in the TITLE or LYRICS. Now, before you ask, yes things like Insects are still technically animals for this round.

                              Lets set the deadline for submission by Sunday 8th August for now.

                                          • This was more difficult than I expected! Considered some more obvious choices too, let's see how this does, not feeling 100% confident about it.

                                            Sad to see sonia go the scores are so close though!

                                            Wow you're right, I simply found it in my playlist and thought it was pretty fitting, forgot that I knew it from the FSC so you basically won 1st and 2nd place this round

                                                  Hopefully a bit easier to listen/judge now the songs list is less.
