SMWCentral Official Annual Music Tourney #4 (2024) - Bracket Round 1: Set C

VotingNon-SMWEvent

Weird Al - Hardware Store
Lady Gaga - Bloody Mary

Why have I never listened to more Lady Gaga wtf that was so good?
Not gonna lie, even as a die-hard Touhou fan who has Idolatrize World among my favorite songs from the series, I wasn't too disappointed with its less-than-stellar performance in this contest, nor was I offended when I saw some criticisms toward it from others here. I do wish more people here could appreciate it, though! Anyway...

1. Weird Al - Hardware Store
2. Manabu Namiki - Hibi (Stage 4)
Kinda in hibernation for a while. I hope to be back in full swing soon.
My choices are:
  1. Beastie Boys - Intergalactic
    Classic Hip-hop! :aaaa: Sorry if I misread it as "Hop Pop".
    And hey, remember the time when Moymoy Palaboy dubsmashed that song?
  2. Manabu Namiki - Hibi (Stage 4)
    I want Manabu Namiki so bad.

Honorable mention:
  • Ginger Root - Juban District

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.

Oh, I feel bad for you, Klonoa-san! Maybe next year you should submit your own entries!

Ah thanks, I missed that.
Check out my WIP romhack!
intergalactic
bloody mary
juban district, hardware store
(an odd stop during a trip to Japan. honorable mentions to intergalactic and bloody mary)
Lady Gaga - Bloody Mary | Funnily enough I had Telephone stuck in my head earlier today. #GrandCentralStation
Weird Al - Hardware Store | this sounds like a song from Phineas & Ferb (complimentary)

Manabu Namiki - Hibi (Stage 4) | Oh this slaps.
Ginger Root - Juban District | 2018core or something.
Queensrÿche - Silent Lucidity | Feels kind of cliché to me, but it picks up well.
Beastie Boys - Intergalactic | This is the kind of music my cousins listened to growing up. (I don't mean anything by this, just an observation)

1. Weird Al - Hardware Store
2. Manabu Namiki - Hibi (Stage 4)

Honourable mention goes to Bloody Mary, I love the tone and vibes it's going for.
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
Manabu Namiki - Hibi (Stage 4) (tough between this and ginger root but i think this had more juice)
Beastie Boys - Intergalactic (always gonna show up for my boys)

one of the weirdest sets in context of tourney history

Weird Al - Hardware Store
Beastie Boys - Intergalactic
Weird Al - Hardware Store
For someone named "weird al", he sure likes to sing about normal things like going to the hardware store!

Ginger Root - Juban District
Can't shake the feeling that I've heard this before, and I like it. A lot, actually

Beastie Boys - Intergalactic
Ginger Root - Juban District
Weird Al - Hardware Store
First time listening to weird al, actually. This is phineas & ferb music.

thank you bebn I can always count on you

Ginger Root - Juban District
This is nice :)
I like the funny meowing synth. I'm glad the trend of putting random japanese sentences in the middle of songs seems to have died, though.

-----------

Manabu Namiki - Hibi (Stage 4)
This is awesome too and would probably have gotten my vote in a different set.

Queensrÿche - Silent Lucidity
I was ready to hate on this one but I ended up actually really liking it LOL
I like how (fittingly) dreamy it sounds. I think my weakness for strings might've made me like it better than I would otherwise have :derpyoshi:

Lady Gaga - Bloody Mary
I hadn't heard this song before :derpyoshi: but it's neat, I like it a lot. Really catchy too. Though to be fair I was expecting more... I don't know what exactly, though. Still, it's great and it Will be stuck in my head for an indefinite amount of time.

Beastie Boys - Intergalactic
Def the weakest song in this set lol.

Vengeance for Ginger Root being robbed last time
Check out my WIP romhack!
Voting For:
Tsukumo Sana - Astrogirl
Leilani Wilson - [Alternate] HydroCity Act 2

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

Lightning Bolt - Dead Cowboy:
I tried to get into this for 5 minutes, then I kinda zoned out for the rest. Would probs be super fun live.


Tsukumo Sana - Astrogirl:
I liked this. I wanna hang out with the vocalist. They sound cool.


Furby Mix - Believe:
My 2.5 year old started dancing to this when I put it on. I'd probably wouldve voted for the Cher version.


bye2 - Reverse Nightmare Tower:
Some really cool bits in this. Gets really strong at the end. A lot of bits that kinda lacked for my taste tho.


Leilani Wilson - [Alternate] HydroCity Act 2:
Very nice. Makes me wanna play Sonic (even tho those games are eh).


Chico Buarque - Geni e o Zepelim:
I love this type of instrumentation. The guys voice doesn't really do it for me. Still a good listen.
Tsukumo Sana - Astrogirl
Leilani Wilson - [Alternate] HydroCity Act 2

Here's a translation I made for Geni e o Zepelim, if you're curious.

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

Chico Buarque - Geni e o Zepelim
My nomination and also I could go on forever about the biting social commentary in the lyrics and how masterfully crafted they are.

Leilani Wilson - [Alternate] HydroCity Act 2
Had to listen to both the act 1 and act 2 versions of the original as well lol (hadn't listened to them before). I like how different it is from those. This is fun, I like it.

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

bye2 - Reverse Nightmare Tower
It's neat. Almost took my second place here.

Tsukumo Sana - Astrogirl
I kind of don't like her voice a whole lot and the forced pronunciations with the emphasis in the wrong syllable (gaLAxies etc.) that show up occasionally are kind of annoying. The song itself is okay.

Furby Mix - Believe
It's a funny concept but unfortunately I didn't care much for it.

Lightning Bolt - Dead Cowboy
