Two Sunset Rollercoaster noms but none for Love Rollercoaster? What kind of tourney is this?!
Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (YuChen Studio live version)
Eduard Khil - I Am Very Glad, as I'm Finally Returning Back Home

I'm not sure what is compelling me to pick the "Trololo song", though I think it could've been a really nice song if it had ever gotten the lyrics it was intended to originally have, and it still is a really nice song when separated from the meme culture it's often steeped in. (Hopefully I'm not doing this because I used it for my 6th grade band assignment, haha). As for the others, Koyaanisqatsi was pretty cool as well, and I respect the Darren Korb pic since he was a guest speaker in my class once.

Tash Sultana - Cigarettes
I couldn't find anything to write :| By the way my Youtube channel
I was ready to make a joke like MORE LIKE SET L AM I RIGHT FELLAS 😂 👌 but this set really wasn't bad

1. Tash Sultana - Cigarettes: This gets a vote just for the part that starts at 3:17. That was great.
2. Claire Rosinkranz - Backyard Boy: This song's really cheesy, but it's actually pretty good. I liked it.
---------------
3. Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi: I've already been wanting to see this movie because it looks really cool, and hearing this just makes me want to see it even more.
4. Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (YuChen Studio live version): This one's solid.
5. Darren Korb - Terminal March: I really liked the first 2 minutes or so of this, but then it just got really boring
6. Eduard Khil - I Am Very Glad, as I'm Finally Returning Back Home: Deppy, you are the real troll for calling this song by its actual name and catching me completely off guard
7. THE ORAL CIGARETTES - Kyouran Hey Kids!: Not really my thing.
8. Arca - Mequetrefe: Again, not really my thing. Also I literally got jumpscared by the beginning of this music video
Check out my WIP romhack!
Here are my picks...
  • Eduard Khil - I Am Very Glad, as I'm Finally Returning Back Home
  • Tash Sultana - Cigarettes


And some commentary...
  • Eduard Khil - I Am Very Glad, as I'm Finally Returning Back Home is quite the familiar song to me. I ultimately gave it the slot, mostly because other than the group of four mentioned below, I decided the other three were just a bit too mediocre for me (and again, I do have a bit of a soft spot for the classics instrumentation-wise).
  • The second slot was a four-way battle between THE ORAL CIGARETTES - Kyouran Hey Kids!, Tash Sultana - Cigarettes, Claire Rosinkranz - Backyard Boy and Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (YuChen Studio live version). The latter two were defeated first, and I ultimately went with Tash Sultana's mainly because it seemed to have a bit more of a variety pack, having a second, somewhat groovier section from 3:17 onwards. If it weren't for that, I would have gone with the Oral Cigarettes' song.
1. Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (YuChen Studio live version): The sheer musicality of this one puts it a step above the rest. Having been done live it was just fun to watch, and impressive at that.

2. Claire Rosinkranz - Backyard Boy: I enjoyed that. Her voice is nice, it was catchy, and she's cute.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

THE ORAL CIGARETTES - Kyouran Hey Kids!: It was alright. The chorus was kinda fun.

Eduard Khil - I Am Very Glad, as I'm Finally Returning Back Home: MEMES

Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi: Really not sure what to say about this one. I'll have to watch the movie.

Arca - Mequetrefe: Not really my kind of music. Interesting music video though.

Darren Korb - Terminal March: I liked the vibe this song gives off. It sort of takes you to a place.

Tash Sultana - Cigarettes: I dig these chill tunes.

落日飛車 Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (Live from YuChen Studio)
hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyespls
Whoever nominated this, thank you.

Tash Sultana - Cigarettes
Likewise, this was a lovely tune to vibe out to, but I'll say that the uptempo part wasn't for me. I also found the outro to be disappointing.



Mequetrefe sure is an Arca track hahaha. To my surprise I almost voted for it. Arca, and similar bubble/hyper-pop artists, are generally extremely hit-or-miss to me, but I liked this one. Not too bizarre. I could've done without the music video though. Not as (personally) discomforting as I expected from Arca, but still too much for my tastes.

I really liked getting to listen to I Am Glad, Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home in full. I'll say though, that this video actually has the music video synced to the music, which makes for a better experience. RIP Khil.

I liked listening to Backyard Boy too, nicely inoffensive. Full disclosure though, I believe the music video tied me over quite a bit #fim{^_^;}

I wanted to like Terminal March, as I'm all about dense, industrial beats, but this one felt entirely too meandering, too unfocused to me. Love the mixing on the beat, but that's about it.

Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (YuChen Studio live version)
Tash Sultana - Cigarettes

Both had a similar really nice chill vibe to em. RIP Bastion even tho I didn't end up voting for it.
1. Sunset Rollercoaster – Greedy (YuChen Studio live version) (oh yeah, now I'm definitely feeling it for sure lol; much better than that other track of theirs IMO, this is fucking great shit, god damn, liking this a ton haha)

2. Tash Sultana - Cigarettes (this is pretty cool as well, and unlike Exodust I actually quite enjoyed the uptempo part; in fact, the song was getting a little bit boring around the time when that part happened, so it was a great way to break the monotony IMO, which was definitely a good call on their part cuz otherwise I would've likely just not have enjoyed it nearly as much to vote for :V)




3. Darren Korb - Terminal March (I would've voted for this, but honestly while I love the choice of instrumentation and in particular the fusion of ethnic instrumentation with the more industrial sounding stuff, it does kind of drag on a bit too long and sounds kind of samey over time, so yeah, quite a shame :V)

4. Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi (not too bad, although it didn't do that much for me either since it didn't have much substance and didn't have much going for it I guess)

5. Eduard Khil - I Am Very Glad, as I'm Finally Returning Back Home (ngl, meme status aside, this is actually not too bad of a song lmao; and dw, I assure you this isn't nostalgia talking cuz I really do not like most of the memes from this era that happen to be associated with certain tracks since most of them just ruin a lot of the original's potential value due to oversaturation, and quite frankly I do not miss them at all #wario{>:|})

6. Arca - Mequetrefe (honestly, the music video was the best thing by far IMO though personally I really don't know what to feel with all those nipple shots flying around, and as a song I was definitely expecting to hate it a lot less since a lot of these types of songs didn't go well with me at all, but it isn't too bad so I dunno, I guess that's something at least lol)

7. THE ORAL CIGARETTES - Kyouran Hey Kids! (pretty generic anime OP shit honestly; not too bad, but also not too good either I suppose. though I do like how the opening guitar riff sounds like two JoJo songs at once for some reason lmao)

8. Claire Rosinkranz - Backyard Boy (fairly boring sounding pop shit I guess. not necessarily the worst thing in the world tho, but far from being the best sadly)

-------------------------------------------

Late again #wario{<_>} also holy cow did sunset rollercoaster make a comeback
Not a particularly good set. Unfortunate, since I was really hoping Set X would be one of the coolest ones :P

1. Lena Raine - Resurrections: I've grown quite tired of Lena Raine songs (or at least the really slow and boring ones that people keep nominating for this tourney), but this one's good.
2. Takumi Naramura & Houryu Samejima - Giant's Cry: Good song, but the original is better. Also play MaGMML 2
---------------
3. Lee Jackson - Goin Down the Fast Way: Not bad at all. Hearing this makes me wonder what the source game is like.
4. Alexander Brandon - All Hallows Sunset: Me when I'm about to beat Depraved Stronghold
5. Paul McCartney - Listen To What The Man Said: I liked some parts of this, but it started to drag quite a bit around the middle
6. Matisyahu - One Day: This sounds like something that would've been in my middle school's 8th grade slideshow
7. Bandai Sound Team - Super Saiyan God SS Evolved Vegeta: Wholly uninteresting
8. I Am a Lake of Burning Orchids - The Cold Neon: Listening to this made me feel like the lake of burning orchids
