ok, final list:

joe hisaishi's riverside
kaleo - way down we go
finger 11- good times
philip glass
sunday in the rain
thou shalt always kill
silent shout- knife
battle beast- black ninja
gamma ray- induction

not 100% happy with it but i think that's the best it's going to get

for the record battle beast is so low for the single reason that im more than a little tired of that style of metal, it's not a bad song, it's just the others are more interesting to me.

kaleo - i like this. i enjoy the bluesy stuff. not blowing the doors off, but i'd happily listen to more of this
joe hisaishi - really pretty sounding.
evanescense - lol nostaligic appreciation
dan le sac/scroobius pip - i've always liked the beat in this song
Phillip Glass - I don't actually hate this song (i may have listened to it before for a music class). i have a soft spot for minimalist classical stuff
battle beast - i think angsty high school monkymeet like 10 years ago would love this. but not anymore. music video is pretty hilarious though
finger eleven - ok i guess
sunday in the rain - the instrumentals start off ok, but i strongly dislike the vocals and the chorus, too.
gamma ray - wat

I tried to tally the scores but got confused because some people had ten person lists which fudge with the point handouts. Kaleo definitely wins though.

Yeah, the problem was we had one entry too few, so people who'd made a submission were forced to either only put in nine votes (which I'd rule as dropping off the lowest score) or to cheat and vote for their own submission.

Now to think of it bog did say he submitted a song but hasn't voted

scroobius pip is probably his fault

that gamma ray thing seems airnike level stupid

that would leave kaleo for sven

Ok we've figured it out someone else do the math I'm too lazy

God, Narts, you gotta know me better than that :) I placed a song that was bad on purpose, because that's what Eurovision does (there's gotta be a reason we never hear of the participants afterwards). I voted myself 2nd-worst after all (I was in the mindset to just put myself at last place anyway).

And I won't do the math, I'm too lazy for that.

Oh hello, I am MysteriousLad.
Do you know when I was an OP player? When I wasn't in WWN and massclaims were legit good? Yea I miss the days I could force town to claim, rout out the mafia, and win the game for free day 3. Sometimes without being killed!
Senpai HPD notices me everyday when I'm town, do no scum play, and still get lynched day 1.
Anyway, it's time to go and ask people to claim and go lynch those who don't with my high-skill OP role.

I'm working on it over work, should be done within a couple hours at the most.

I will be using a grading scale of
10
8
7
6
5
4
3
2
1
for entrants and the regular scale for HPD's list.

no rushing into things has never been a bad idea ever

I'm just making the list to give everyone an understanding of how they stand. ML can check my math and incur any hidden penalties he likes that may end up changing close scores.

EDIT:
Okay not-so-final list coming up.
There were 426 point to give out between the eight entrants that made lists and HPD. Since Sniffit and Bog didn't submit votes, their songs will receive a 20 point penalty which was not figured into this tally.
In order from best to worst:
1) Kaleo: Way Down We Go - 63
2) Joe Hisaishi: Riverside - 61
3) The Knife: Silent Shout - 49
4) Sunday in the Rain: Plastic Cups - 47
5) Evanescence: Can't Wake Up - 46
6) Finger Eleven: Good Times - 42
7) Battle Beast: Black Ninja - 37
8) Philip Glass: Music in Twelve Parts - 28
9) Scroobius Pip Vs. Dan Le Sac: Thou Shalt Always Kill - 27
10) Gamma Ray: Induction - 26

I'm honestly surprised about Scroobius Pip. The song grew on me after I'd cast my vote and listened again. Gamma Ray got what it deserved, and Philip Glass was put on the bottom simply because it was so damn long. While I liked Silent Shout, I didn't expect it to do as well as it did.
