    magic hat, to the east coast
    (sent through the postal service. honorable mentions to interstellar and idolatrize world, difficult set)
    Oh no I missed a set already

    The Scary Jokes - Magic Hat: Banger.
    The hat noooo 😭😭😭

    Kaishandao - To the East Coast: Fantastic.

    milkypossum - Interstellar: Oh this is super radical. I wish I had room to vote for it too.
    Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Mysteries: This is cute
    ZUN - Entrust this World to Idols ~ Idolatrize World: This was never my favorite final boss song cause a lot of the middle feels very lazily made (the song has to pad to the battle, but ZUN has done this a lot better in other occasions), but the beginning and some of the peaks still make it a banger. Also sorry but this is the worst Touhou...
    League of Legends - RISE (feat. The Glitch Mob, Mako, and The Word Alive): I can see the appeal in this, but it's not for me. It's an Imagine Dragons-y pop and unfortunately I hate ID lol
    The Scary Jokes - Magic Hat
    Ohh, I like where this went. It's peak!

    milkypossum - Interstellar
    I have no problems with this. This was good! Good job milkypossum

    The Scary Jokes - Magic Hat | This is very groovy. Love the instruments. The video's cool too.
    ZUN - Entrust this World to Idols ~ Idolatrize World | When the Heritage is Electric! (I like this song in the context of the game but I don't know how to process it within a music tourney context.)

    milkypossum - Interstellar | Interesting use of Vocaloid, also I like the fast sections.
    Kaishandao - To the East Coast | Definitely moreso the kind of music you keep on in the background, I think that's how I'd enjoy it.
    Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Mysteries | It's fine but it's a little too yearny and slow for my taste.
    League of Legends - RISE (feat. The Glitch Mob, Mako, and The Word Alive) | It's not bad per se but it really has generic trailer vibes.

    MY VOTES:

    ZUN - Entrust this World to Idols ~ Idolatrize World
    Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Mysteries

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

    OH NO! SORRY THAT I'M LATE TO THIS TOURNEY! #fim{:X}
    Okay, I've been waiting for this tourney for a long time, I'm glad that it's happening again. But oh, man! I didn't know it had already had its submission period, I kept refreshing the page of the 2024 SMWC Event Calendar to know if this was starting and nothing about this appeared. I thought it would since it did in the 2023 SMWC Event Calendar, but I was wrong. I had some songs ready to put here, but I was too late, I'm so frustrated, I seriously want to cry. #thp{T_T}}#fim{:'(}
    I guess I'll have to keep refreshing the Current Contests & Events page instead of the Calendar page from now on if I want to stay tuned about this tournament next time.
    The Scary Jokes - Magic Hat
    milkypossum - Interstellar (sure i'll go dnb mode today)

    beth gibbons and kaishandao also good, please dont make me listen to any league of legends songs ever again

    difficult set (too much good music 💁‍♂️)

    milkypossum - Interstellar
    omg gumi hiiiii. Vocaloid mention #2. This is great :ilikethesoundofthat:
    Great usage of gumi too, she sounds really smooth (except in the parts where she doesn't but that's obviously intentional, so).

    ZUN - Entrust this World to Idols ~ Idolatrize World
    I almost didn't pick this because of the lackluster production and extremely thin percussion but... idk I just like what it does and where it goes :derpyoshi: I don't listen to touhou music or play smw hacks so that might be why it stood out to me lol
    Also "Idolatrize World" is a funny name.

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

    The Scary Jokes - Magic Hat
    I wish I could vote for this too. It's really good and I do love it but I just vibed with the touhou song more. Cool music video!

    Kaishandao - To the East Coast
    Didn't expect to like it as much as I did, but yeah, it's neat :)

    Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Mysteries
    It's good but not my thing.

    League of Legends - RISE (feat. The Glitch Mob, Mako, and The Word Alive)
    Straight people music. The way the guy enunciates some words is funny (e.g. we've only begoaaaeeeinn).
    Shoutouts to the french (iirc) animation studio that does the promotional animations for lol stuff, I like their stylized 3d a lot; they did it before spiderverse made it cool!

    didn't vote last round so I'm early this round instead

    Beastie Boys - Intergalactic


    Queensrÿche - Silent Lucidity


    Ginger Root - Juban District


    Dodonpachi Saidaioujou - Hibi (Stage 4)


    Lady Gaga - Bloody Mary
    1. Beastie Boys - Intergalactic: Anyone that doesn't vote for this is unbased
    2. Ginger Root - Juban District: LOOOVE Ginger Root, they're literally the first concert I went to but I wish a different song was picked. Not only because this was already in a tourney, but because they've released much better ones since
    UPDATE: Why doesn't this use the music video that's like half the appeal of Ginger Root!!!!! :C
    ---------------
    3. Lady Gaga - Bloody Mary: I've gotta say, I was VERY surprised when this song blew up and I learned that it was actually from like 2011. The production is super ahead of its time
    4. Weird Al - Hardware Store: This song slaps more than it really should
    5. Queensrÿche - Silent Lucidity: Drags on a bit for my taste
    6. Dodonpachi Saidaioujou - Hibi (Stage 4): It's ok
