    I don’t know what song you’re talking about, but you’ve been very generous toward my picks recently.

    I’d have submitted Dear Theodosia from a few rounds ago for this if I hadn’t used it already.

    This one comes to mind.

    As well as Dance With My Father by Luther Vandross (or Celine Dion).
    Celine has several: Goodbye's The Saddest Word, Parler A Mon Pere
    Madonna: Mother & Father, Promise To Try
    Mariah: Flowers For Alfred Roy
    Janet: You Need Me
    Wilson Phillips: Flesh and Blood

    Many goose bump songs.

    Close round really going to have to bring it this one.

    I had GG’s ‘The Boys’ in mind too and even though it has a Korean version, the chorus still has English so in keeping almost completely in a foreign language I went with Gee (where the only English is the little spoken intro bit and the word ‘baby’ IIRC haha).

    Getting to the business end now. I have something in mind.

    Oh wow I’m leading! Glad Paparazzi was a smash. OK I’ll give this one some thought.

    Round 8. What makes a good parent?
    I was inspired by Mahmood's Soldi (ESC Italy this year), and remembered other songs about the relationships between parents and children. Sometimes it's beautiful, but sometimes not. I want all the collectors to sent me a song that is about a child and their parent(s). Goodluck!

    Deadline: Saturday

    Sorry for the terrible long wait sweeties! Please forgive me, i will try to do better! Atleast my cold has gotten a bit less

    Round 7 Scores


    1. Hyuna - Ice Cream (SUMMERPEUR)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlWZluzBNxM

    Cheapthrills: I guess this is PCD Kpop style? I liked the bridge, but not much else. I feel overwhelmed with noise.
    Score: 4.5

    Jsparksfan: Basic, uninspired, unexciting.
    Score: 6,5

    Gagarazzi: Sounds like something Gwen Stefani would do if she were Korean.
    Score: 4

    2. Girls' Generation - Paparazzi (starts at 1:45) (THRILLER)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUqP1xzRZkw&app=desktop

    Cheapthrills: Goodness this takes awhile to get going, doesn’t it? First Bolero, then Singing in the Rain? This is another high energy song, but maybe the fact that this is such a large group makes the vocal interplay more interesting.
    Score: 8.5

    Jsparskfan: This isn't perfect, but it is interesting. I'm definitely playing this again.
    Score: 8

    Gagarazzi: Pretty catchy actually. I really like their voices.
    Score: 8

    3. Era – Ameno (SPARTAN)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xUn...ature=youtu.be

    Cheapthrills: How very Game of Thrones. (Or maybe not – I’ve never watched that show in my life; it just seems like the kind of music I’d hear on that show.). I like the renaissance choral music backed with the dance beat. It reminds me a little of the group Enigma.
    Score: 8

    Jsparskfan: Sleep-inducing.
    Score: 6

    Gagarazzi: Sounds like Enigma’s Sadeness which I love, but this wasn’t as good.
    Score: 6

    4. BigBang - Bang Bang Bang (TREBOR)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ips2mM7Zqw

    Cheapthrills: OK, this has all the hallmarks of a song that would I love to completely die in a fire – boy band posturing, music that seems to switch it up too often, annoying vocals and a video that tries too hard. And yet somehow, I was thoroughly entertained. I don’t understand myself sometimes.
    Score: 9

    Jsparskfan: Eh, this was just noise for me.
    Score: 3

    Gagarazzi: Was ok until the ‘Bang bang bang’ part. Annoying.
    Score: 2

    5. Christine and the Queens - Damn, dis-moi (feat Dam-Funk) (FLOPHO)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdIvdGoLJRU

    Cheapthrills: The only act here I had heard of before – never really gotten too excited with her work, but I don’t think this is bad. It just feels like it’s stuck in a rut.
    Score: 7

    Jsparksfan: Good stuff!
    Score: 7,5

    Gagarazzi: I was such a stan for her debut album. I bought it 5 times actually! This song however sounds like a Michael Jackson/Bruno Mars b-side.
    Score: 6

    6. Girls' Generation – Gee (AFFILLATE)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7mPqycQ0tQ&app=desktop

    Cheapthrills: Oh man, after the other GG song in this group, I thought this might be another one to enjoy, but I feel like I’m trapped in a Hello Kitty ad or something. The melody is a bit all over the place. Naturally I’m going to compare the two; I believe the other song submitted is better.
    Score: 5

    Jsparksfan: Equal parts charming and irritating. I have mixed feelings about this, but I'd certainly revisit it.
    Score: 7

    Gagarazzi: This done didn’t really do much for me
    Score: 3




    Woah! Summerpeur got the lowest score this round. I swear i didn't just made this up becouse it was more convenient.... Sad to see you leave, and i hope you ejoyed it! Congrats to Thriller for receiving the highest score this round!

    Maybe we should just reveal the submitted scores and comments. They are meaningless anyhow with Summer leaving.

    I agree. Especially with Summer leaving the reduced scores wont matter anyway (only for the following round's placings which will be less room for a bad score because there were less total score for Round 7). Replacement Judge next round (unless Gravity returns).

    ^ Ah what a shame [MENTION=34626]SummerPeur[/MENTION] wish you would've stayed! I hope you enjoyed participating!

    So this means the rest is safe.

    Also sorry for the delay everyone.
    [MENTION=46754]Gravity[/MENTION] you are annoying me right now, please hurry up!!

    I’m going to have to pull out.

    Colbie you’ve done such a fantastic job hosting! I’ve really enjoyed it.

    Tbh I thought we would be done by now (or close too) but each round is just getting longer and longer and I now leave for holidays in a few days. So whoever was due to leave this round (which might even have been me anyway) - saving grace.

    Thank you for auch such a fun game and all the interesting songs / comments!

    I voted a couple days ago, and I'm appalled at the song I gave my highest score to.
