    Results of the Quarter Final's .

    Thanks to all who took part and especially to the last round exits for their votes ! I am sure the players were as appreciative as I was !! .

    Tie 1 ,
    The Stranglers - 11111111 ( 8 )
    Cat Stevens - 11 ( 2 )
    A comprehensive win for The Stranglers and commiserations to Cat Stevens .. Taz .
    Being a long time fan of Cat Stevens / Yusuf I was so pleased to see it chosen and for me " Father Son " song is one of the truly greats ! . I wish I could show you Taz's votes and comments on the songs he was voting on , an excellent rundown of song/arrangement and his views on various lyrics and musical instruments , many thanks Taz .
    Congratulations to The Stranglers the semi final awaits you .

    T he Quarter Final Results ,

    Tie 2 ,

    Foo Fighters - 11111111 ( 8 )
    Duran Duran 11 ( 2 )
    Another tie that was comprehensive , but a few voters were disappointed they had to separate these two and a couple had them down for the final two . One voter was Duran Duran'd out their nut !
    So commiserations to Duran Duran .. Tim Time , who after a disappointing first round unleashed the big guns and strode up the leader board .. still with a back catalogue to come .. alas !
    Congratulations to Foo Fighters .. check your catalogue as it will be needed soon .

    The Quarter Finals Results ,

    Tie 3 ,
    T Rex - 1111 ( 4 )
    Crowded House 111111 ( 6 )
    T Rex blazed the first 2 rounds scoring 16 / 16 and 15 / 16 , with Crowded House a very disappointing first round forced into action but stormed up the board to claim an automatic 1/4 final place . Scoring was eachy peachy in this one till Crowded House pushed it over the line .
    Commiserations to T Rex .. The Prof but safe in the knowledge you entertained this audience with the finest of Glam Rock
    and they loved it !!
    Congratulations Crowded House your journey carries on into the semi final .

    The Quarter Final Results '

    Tie 4 '
    Depeche Mode - 111111 ( 6 )
    Belle & Sebastian - 1111 ( 4 )
    Another Tie that swayed back and forth until the end . Two fantastic groups that certainly gave it their all in this competition .. nothing was left out out there and both should feel equally pleased with their participation .
    Commiserations to Belle & Sebastian .. Forrest Bhoy 66 , great competition .

    Congratulations Depeche Mode ! you made it to the semi finals !

    Enjoyed Belle and Sebastian. Not surprised it was @Forestbhoy66 who had them, he has good taste in music.

    Was really surprised by that tbh. Didn't think that there was any chance of using stuff like School's Out or Poison and AC not getting through. Poison was the only time that I was able to vote for AC, and it got a '1' from me, lol. At the start, thought AC could've been a real contender to go deep in this comp, considering stuff like Only Women Bleed and No More Mr Nice Guy etc still up the proverbial sleeve.

    Well done the semi - finalists !

    I randomised the artists 3 times and decided to go this time with 1v2 and 3v4 ,

    Screenshot (3).png

    So the semi - final randomiser threw up ,
    Tie 1 ,
    The Stranglers v Depeche Mode
    Tie 2
    Crowded House v Foo Fighters

    Think for this semi - finals we could go with 2 songs from each contestant ,
    As usual a song of your choice and one from your artists debut Album .

    Scoring will be the same , 1 for which artist's songs combined you preferred , most 1,s takes the finals places .
    Contestants vote on the semi - final you are not in and other voters both ties please if you can .

    Songs can be sent anytime , no hurry just pick your best .

    Shame we aren't gonna have this from DD...



    Great intro, good sing-a-long lyrics, and cool little guitar licks also. Great song.
