      • Just waiting on Leo Scores.

        Here's the Hanson brothers with If Only:



        Also good timing kinda fits with this theme, Its also 20th Anniversary of Big Brother Australia's first season launch (as noted in my Personal Chart Aussie/NZ Spotlight Thread) and the current Season started on Monday Night.

            • Sorry, so I was the one missing this time! Nice set but still I am not conquered.

              • Looking forward to the results! Love that Sheppard song.

                • Results are in! Here's also Jonas Brothers with Cool/Burnin' Up from SNL in 2019.

                  ROUND 3 - SIBLINGS - RESULTS

                  Carpenters - Solitaire [SPARTAN]
                  LEO: A nice song. An expected selection of siblings but with not the usual song so I am fine with this. 4.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: Beautiful classic. 5
                  WAYNE: Carpenters - Solitaire - one of my favourite songs of ALL-TIME, those vocals are something else and the emotion behind this song is SO palpable, utterly stunning. Great fit to the theme, I award the song 6.0 points. 6

                  Everly Brothers - Bye Bye Love [COLBIE]
                  LEO: I didn't like this version of this great songā€¦ Still a cool selection of siblings and a classic song. 4.5
                  JSPARKSFAN: Not bad, but not particularly memorable either. 4
                  WAYNE: Everly Brothers - Bye Bye Love - oh what a throwback, amazing that this was recorded in 1957! Lovely song, I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                  First Aid Kit - Emmylou [CHEAPTHRILLS]
                  LEO: Emmylou is someone that captivates me for some reason I still don't know. So the sogn captured me, and I don't see too much Emmylou in it but still loved the atmosphere and the video. Song of the round for me. 6.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: Beautiful interpretation. 5
                  WAYNE: First Aid Kit - Emmylou - I love their voices together, and how lovely to see how moved Emmylou was by their performance. I award the song 5.0 points. 5

                  First Aid Kit - Stay Gold [CARBON]
                  LEO: 2 Toris, 2 FAKā€¦ you guys are all connected! Beautiful song, their voices merge and the flow of the songs touches me. 5.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: An equally beautiful interpretation! 5
                  WAYNE: First Aid Kit - Stay Gold - interesting that two people selected them, this was as awesome as Emmylou (but for different reasons). I feel like this is an act I'd like if I delved a bit deeper into their discography. I award the song 5.0 points. 5

                  HAIM - If I Could Change Your Mind [FLOPHO]
                  LEO: HAIM is, imo, one of the strongest bands around: they have yet to deliver their best thing, and that is something magical to feel. 5.5
                  JSPARKSFAN: Enjoyable, repeat-worthy. 4.5
                  WAYNE: HAIM - If I Could Change Your Mind - I find HAIM to be very hit or miss with their songs, this was a hit, great song. I award the song 5.0 points. 5

                  Kylie & Dannii Minogue - 100 Degrees (It's Still Disco To Me) [GABRIELFLORIN01]
                  LEO: Their voices are so similar that this is not a duet at all. Cool song. 3.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: Ooh, this was a bop! 6
                  WAYNE: Kylie & Dannii Minogue - 100 Degrees (It's Still Disco To Me) - it's a good link to the theme but it feels a bit naff as a song I don't think I've heard it before, it feels very Jane McDonald. I award the song 4.0 points. 4

                  Marvin Gaye - What's Happening Brother [SONIA85]
                  LEO: Extra point for thinking differently here. Kind of a safe choice though. 4.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: Dry and dreary. 3.5
                  WAYNE: Marvin Gaye - What's Happening Brother - this is the only song where the link to the theme comes solely from the song, rather than the act. I quite like that someone hasn't been obvious with their selection but this isn't about siblings is it, even if the title would have you think it is? Important song regardless and very relevant to its time (and arguably even today, as we should all be looking out for each other - our brothers and sisters, as it were - more than ever). I award the song 4.0 points, on the basis that it doesn't quite fit the theme. 4

                  S2S (Sister 2 Sister) - Sister [AFFILLATE]
                  LEO: Ok 90s pop song, but kind of unimpressive the song itself. 2.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: This has a level of sanguinity that should be difficult to digest, but I'm here for it! Uber cute. 4.5
                  WAYNE: S2S (Sister 2 Sister) - Sister - a double whammy, with the link coming from the act and the song! Cute lyrics, scores better than the song deserves because of how well it hits the theme. I award the song 4.0 points. 4

                  The Band Perry - Gentle On My Mind [TREBOR]
                  LEO: Nice country little tune! I think her voice lacks depth, it's nice and different but kinda monotonous. 3.5
                  JSPARKSFAN: Good. 4.5
                  WAYNE: The Band Perry - Gentle On My Mind - nice, and wasn't aware they were all siblings. I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                  The Flirtations - Nothing But a Heartache [THRILLER]
                  LEO: I wanted to love this but was barely listenable at one point, too noisy. Still, I enjoy this music style and brings nostalgia to the game so one extra point there. 3.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: Old-school midtempo soul with passion - this one was fantastic! 5.5
                  WAYNE: The Flirtations - Nothing But a Heartache - this is crying out to be sampled or featured on an advert. Good song and link to the theme. I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                  The Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey [NAVI]
                  LEO: Its monotonous, but I think that's the intention here. I like this style but could have been better. 3.5
                  JSPARKSFAN: Nice, though the climax could've been even more explosive. 4.5
                  WAYNE: The Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey - I have mixed feelings about this, links perfectly well to the theme, but production wise it felt like I was listening to two different songs at times. LOVE how the vocals are laid over the top of the production though, that part is beautiful. I want to love this but I'm not quite there yet. I award the song 4.5 points. 4.5

                  The Veronicas - When It All Falls Apart [GAGARAZZI]
                  LEO: Ok, midpoint, 3.0
                  JSPARKSFAN: This song's got the teenage angst energy in both its lyrics and melody, but I still found it a rather engaging listen. 4.5
                  WAYNE: The Veronicas - When It All Falls Apart - these are one of the first acts I thought about when I read the theme and I'm pleased someone selected them, love this song. I award the song 5.0 points. 5

GaGarazzi !

                  Thanks so much for playing. 10 Contestants Plus myself remain going into Round 4.

                    • Wow, thank you, judges! Never thought I would get a six from Leo! The song really touches me. I am curious if Wayne suspected Emmylou was my entry considering the Linda survivor?

                      I was originally going to do the Pointer Sisters, but decided I wanted to pick a more contemporary act. I thought First Aid Kit would be less obvious but apparently not

                      I really love Thriller's retro entry!

                      Comment


                      • Oooh mid-table, not bad! I wanted to enter something old for a change.

                        I almost went for First Aid Kit too I’d have gone for My Silver Lining.

                        • I’d genuinely never head my Carpenters song I submitted before last week but fell in love with it.

                          • The Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey [NAVI]
                            i would never expect the lowest point for a rock song from Leo amongst this jury lineup

                            (thank you Wayne and JSparksFan for not slaying me )

                              Nope, I suspected you might be behind the Carpenters.

                              In hindsight, I should’ve given Emmylou 6 points as it’s the one song that has stuck with me since listening to them all, so clearly it’s a very good song.

                              I suspected Thriller as being behind the Kylie and Dannii song though and was wrong as per, I need to stop automatically associating Thriller with anything to do with Kylie.

                              • I am just going to say it: i feel the other judges are being WAY too nice and are making me, probably the nicer one, to look really bad.
                                C'mon, Wayne's lowest points was a 4!!! I am going to start giving 1s just to break all this edulcorated team.


                                Ok, now seriously, I am liking all entries but try to give points in relation to one another. I only give one 6 per round, and then by first listen I give them points but thentry to separate them a little so not to give all the same points... And that's what actually happened with Mary&Jesus, But thinking it now with more time and coldness in my mind, I should have given it the original 4 and Carpenters should have been 3.5. No changes so no regrets.

                                • ROUND 4 - WAR

                                  Last Week Australia and New Zealand observed ANZAC Day on April 25, a War remembrance day, particularly for the Gallipoli landing during WW1 in 1915. It's a dark side of human history, but has been referenced in various songs both literally and also as metaphor for love songs etc. I took over running a Survivor based on 'Battle' Songs for biscuits IIRC a few years ago on UKMix.

                                  So this rounds theme will be songs using War/Battle Imagery. Lets set the deadline for submission by Wednesday 5th May for now.

                                    I think you and I are awarding points differently - you are obviously using the whole points in totality when looking at whether you like a song and whether it fits the theme, whereas I am splitting my points into two parts:

                                    - Up to 3 points on whether it fits the theme.
                                    - Up to 3 points on whether I like the song.

                                    Using Marvin as an e.g. I awarded it 1 point for theme, and 3 points
                                    for the song as I did like the song. If you nail the theme, you’re pretty much guaranteed at least 3 points from me.

                                                Not confident at all but really couldn’t think of any songs suitable.

                                                    On a Side note was Star Wars 'May The Fourth Be With You' Day yesterday and Cinco De Mayo today, which apparently has connections to Mexican Battle of Puebla over The French in 1862.
