SMWCentral Official Annual Music Tourney #1 2021 - end

Event

Bobby Brown - On Our Own
4-Mat - Rose
Bobby Brown - On Our Own (Is this the best Ghostbusters song? It appears the people have decided.)
4-Mat - Rose (Kinda don't like voting for the other super popular song but I have to admit it's really good.)

(Overall good set, though it felt like each song had a caveat. Tim Follin pick was solid Follin, Bosse was nice, the BoI track would've been better without the speaking part. Both Beatles and Pokemon picks were very underwhelming (former is a classic but not really great for a tourney setting).)

4-Mat - Rose
Tim Follin - Title [Gauntlet III]


Seems like thse two stayed up when I proceeded by elimination.
I like the different themes of Follin's song. This was a weird set because none of the songs felt truly memorable.
Here are my picks...
  • Tim Follin - Title [Gauntlet III]
  • Bobby Brown - On Our Own


And now some commentary...
  • The battle for the second slot ended up being between a three-way battle. Interestingly, I didn't group these three: it just ended up this way as I narrowed down my selections. Ultimately, I determined that 4-Mat - Rose was defeated by RetroSpecter - Game Corner Remix, which in turn was defeated by Bobby Brown - On Our Own. With regards to the other four not in this set, I rejected two of them (although in one of the cases, it was just too mediocre rather than an outright auto-reject), and ended up grouping the other two together, where they ultimately didn't make the cut.
  • I have more familiarity with The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night than the rest of these songs.
  • The Field - Over the Ice's reminds me of Empirion - The Dark Inside Me in overall execution (except more relaxed overall). As for how I know the latter? I had Demolition Derby for the PS1. Surprisingly, although I'm not picking it for my top two, it definitely scores an honorable mention in the long run, as I've found myself more interested in listening to this one again than any other entry so far.
4-Mat - Rose

The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night
1. 4Mat - Rose (pretty cool chiptune track)

2. Bobby Brown - On Our Own (pretty cool funk/RnB track)




3. Tim Follin - Title [Gauntlet III] (cool, but not worthy enough for a vote, Follin track)

4. The Field - Over the Ice (interesting minimalist sounding track)

5. Bosse - So oder so (kind of boring track)

6. RetroSpecter - Game Corner Remix (boring ass remix of a cool Pokemon song track)

7. The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night (The Beatles,)

8. Ridiculon - Living in the Light (uhh...)

The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night

YES
The Field - Over the Ice
you could say the rest of the songs were "The Ice"

Ridiculon - Living in the Light
:pensive:

NO?
4-Mat - Rose
this is good for being chiptune, but i just don't like chiptune and the start is super fucking grating

Bobby Brown - On Our Own
why does everything feel so weirdly reverby

Tim Follin - Title [Gauntlet III]
it's really cool that there's a tim follin song that doesn't sound exactly the same as all the rest of them

NO
Bosse - So oder so
just kinda unremarkable

The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night
this song feels so heterosexual that it makes me uncomfortable

RetroSpecter - Game Corner Remix
just... nominate the original song
Bosse - So oder so
4-Mat - Rose
4-Mat - Rose

RetroSpecter - Game Corner Remix

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

My choices are:
  1. The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night
  2. RetroSpecter - Game Corner Remix

Btw, I love listening to The Beatles, though...

4-Mat - Rose
Tim Follin - Gauntlet III

(I'm sorry for Over The Ice, but ain't "Everyday")
4-Mat - Rose
Bosse - So oder so

On Our Own was pretty close and I was considering putting the Tim Follin song up there, but I didn't want both my picks to be retro game-y, plus I'm biased towards the German language, so I had to keep So oder so.
