    Sophie Ellis-Bextor | Artist Survivor



    Welcome to the artist survivor of Sophie Ellis-Bextor. The former queen of British dance pop has so far released six studio albums (excluding her Orchestral Greatest Hits, which will not be part of this survivor) throughout her career. Dealing with her whole discography would be a bit too much - however, ignoring all of her album tracks wouldn't be fair either since there are a lot of hidden gems in a big discography like hers.

    That's why we will do a nomination round before the survivor officially starts. To make it more diverse, I decided it would be a good idea to include two album tracks per album. Every participant can choose one album track per album and the two tracks with the most votes of each album will join the singles in this survivor. This means that we will have a total of 35 songs competing against each other.

    If you only know/like the songs from a few albums, then that's fine too - so you don't have to choose an album track of every album, you can also vote for only one album track in total, if you really don't like any from other albums. I'm not sure how popular Sophie is on ukmix - if there aren't enough votes, then the survivor will simply start with the singles only.

    Please do not nominate the following songs as they are singles and are therefore part of the survivor anyway:

    Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)
    Take Me Home (A Girl Like Me)
    Murder on the Dancefloor
    Get Over You
    Move This Mountain
    Music Gets the Best of Me
    Mixed Up World
    I Won't Change You
    Catch You
    Me and My Imagination
    Today the Sun's on Us
    Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer)
    Can't Fight This Feeling
    Not Giving Up on Love
    Bittersweet
    Off & On
    Starlight
    Young Blood
    Runaway Daydreamer
    Love Is a Camera
    The Deer & the Wolf
    Come with Us
    Crystallise
    Wild Forever
    Death of Love

    NOMINATION ROUND: Nominate one album track per album (so a maximum of six songs - there is no minimum).

              Lover
              You Get Yours
              If You Go

              Second album is masterpiece, I love almost all tracks.
              My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).
              In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                Ah, I wish I could nominate more Make a Scene songs instead of some other albums where I don't really like any album track

                  You’re right, apparently I forgot to include it, thanks for mentioning. So you and [MENTION=834]Thriller[/MENTION] can choose another song from “Make a Scene”. I’ll edit the first post and include “Not Giving Up on Love”.

                        I would nominate the all the songs off Make A Scene if I could - her best album by far!

                        My nominations are Magic and Here Comes The Rapture.

                          Since there are a lot of ties, I’ll probably just let all the mentioned album tracks be part of the survivor. “Magic” was already mentioned, so if you want you can nominate another track from “Make a Scene” because “Magic” will qualify anyway. The first round will start in a few hours, so there’s still some time.

                            RESULTS | Nomination Round

                            As I’ve mentioned above, I decided to let every mentioned song qualify due to the high number of ties and lack of votes in general. This means that the following album tracks will join us in this survivor:

                            Read My Lips: I Believe, Lover
                            Shoot from the Hip: The Walls Keep Saying Your Name, You Get Yours
                            Trip the Light Fantastic: New Flame, If I Can’t Dance, If You Go
                            Make a Scene: Homewrecker, Magic, Make a Scene, Dial My Number
                            Wanderlust: Cry to the Beat of the Band, Wrong Side of the Sun
                            Familia: Don’t Shy Away, Hush Little Voices, Here Comes the Rapture

                            ROUND 1/GROUP A: All the songs have been randomly put together in four groups. Vote out three songs and save one song in each group.

                            GROUP A:
                            Here Comes the Rapture
                            Can't Fight This Feeling
                            Make a Scene
                            Take Me Home (A Girl Like Me)
                            Starlight
                            Me and My Imagination
                            Don’t Shy Away
                            I Believe
                            If I Can’t Dance
                            Come with Us

                                          Everyone needs to listen to Don't Shy Away before voting it out. I never listened to it before this survivor, but trust me it's simply divine!

                                            Thanks for mentioning this. But I didn’t expect it to stay long in this survivor anyway when I nominated it, because I think Sophie’s last album isn’t really popular on ukmix in general.

                                                Tried Don't Shy Away, but it still doesn't really impress me (much like its parent album).

                                                  RESULTS | Round 1/Group A

                                                  We lose “I Believe” from her debut album as well as “Here Comes the Rapture” and “Don’t Shy Away” from her last album. In Round 1, ties will be broken according the to number of people who saved the song. That’s why “Don’t Shy Away” gets a better rank than “I Believe”, even though they received the same total amount of points.

                                                  Code:
                                                  41. I Believe
                                                  40. Don’t Shy Away
                                                  39. Here Comes the Rapture
                                                  ROUND 1/GROUP B: Vote out three songs and save one song.
