    In a surprising turn of events we have THREE winners here, as all albums end up with 4 votes! Ok, it was not really surprising as we've been getting big ties in the last couple of rounds. I decided all three win, but if I calculate points based on ALL rounds, Cyndi is #1, MGMT #2 and The Doors #3. But as it is not fair to decide positions based on that, all are winners.

    Thanks everyone for joining and supporting! See you soon!!!

    She's So Unusual is the debut studio album by American singer and songwriter Cyndi Lauper, released on October 14, 1983 by Portrait Records. In 1978, Lauper formed the band Blue Angel. The band soon signed a recording contract with Polydor Records; however, their debut album, Blue Angel, was a commercial failure. The band parted ways after firing their manager, who sued Lauper for $80,000 and forced her into bankruptcy. Lauper went on to sing in many New York night clubs, and caught the eye of David Wolf, who became her manager and subsequently got her signed to Portrait Records.

    The album is primarily new wave-based, with many of the songs being influenced by synthpop and pop rock. Upon its release, the album received positive reviews from music critics, who noted Lauper's unique vocals. Lauper earned several awards and accolades for the album, including two Grammy Awards at the 27th Grammy Awards, one of which was for Best New Artist.

    Oracular Spectacular is the debut album by American band MGMT, released on October 2, 2007 by RED Ink and physically on January 22, 2008 by Columbia. It was produced by Dave Fridmann and is the band's first release of new content, being recorded from March to April 2007. Promotion for the album started as early as June 2007, when the song "Weekend Wars" was given away in summer issues of free monthly magazine Nöjesguiden in Stockholm, Sweden.

    Oracular Spectacular has received mostly positive reviews. Jason Lymangrover of AllMusic called Oracular Spectacular's tracks "some of the catchiest pop songs to come from NYC since the turn of the millennium" and stated that "the songs never feel insincere and the record is inherently strong throughout, making it a solid start to their career."

    The Doors is the debut album by the American rock band the Doors, recorded in 1966 at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood, California, it was produced by Paul A. Rothchild and released on January 4, 1967. The album features their breakthrough single "Light My Fire" and the lengthy song "The End" with its Oedipal spoken word section. The Doors was central to the progression of psychedelic rock, and has been critically acclaimed. In 2012, it was ranked number 42 in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 greatest albums of all time. The original album has sold 20 million copies, and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame; "Light My Fire" was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

    In 1969, Morrison stated: "Every time I hear ["The End"], it means something else to me. It started out as a simple good-bye song ... Probably just to a girl, but I see how it could be a goodbye to a kind of childhood. I really don't know. I think it's sufficiently complex and universal in its imagery that it could be almost anything you want it to be."

    What's up with all these ties? Didn't we learn from RuPaul's Drag Race? Maybe I could have changed my vote to MGMT so we can have a #1, #2 and #3 but OK werk.

    I love all three songs, so I'm completely fine with the outcome. Actually, the entire top five was perfect.

    Thanks for hosting, @Leo!

    It's not a rig, I equally wanted Cyndi to win as MGMT. But a three way finale didn't allow me to vote as I really wanted, and we ended up with THREE winners. All these rounds and arguments over nothing.

    In honor of this tie, I'm going to share the #1 spot of Worst Survivor Ever with Leo and @Thriller (for the Sigala one). Congrats!
