    What makes a Berserky nobody the right choice to host one of these considering he never won any rounds of these? He put his hand up to do it - that's what! Dddddd

    Rules are (mostly) the same as with the usual rates we run - give every song here a score out of 10 (I'll even accept some basic decimals) and an 11 to your very favourite winner! If you have won one or more of these rounds however, you cannot 11 your own entry/ies but feel free to give them the 10 they deserve for bringing you the fame, the accolades, the Dalida Record Breaking life etc!

  2. SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
    courtesy of the ever-wonderful @londonrain:




    I've used the Spotify links that were used in each round from round 31 onwards, and have checked the versions against the YouTube links in rounds 26-30, so everything should be correct and I'm not expecting any complaints this time (for once).

    Missing songs:
    The Peanuts - Koi No Fuga
    Denise Lopez - Don't You Wanna Be Mine (it still irritates me that Spotify seems to have every mix of the song apart from this one)
    Paperdolls - Gonna Make You Blush
    Alex Brown - (Come On) Shout

  3. Excited for this rate!

    I know exactly what my 11 will be (unless something surprises me big time), and it's one of the songs than won back when I hadn't joined the conest yet.
     
  4. I have never actually heard a few of these so quite curious to finally check them out.

    And allowing people to vote on their own entries but not 11 them definitely seems like the best way to go.

  5. I’m excited to dive into some of these winning tracks! I only started my PJ Retro shenanigans with the round Alex Brown won, so I’m sure I missed a few goodies along the way!
     
  6. Question (More announcement actually Dddddd)!

    While making the SPOTIFY Playlist, I am noticing there are a lot of songs I cannot find on there (either region locked or tagged differently on SPOTIFY), and since I am at work - I cannot listen to make sure they are the correct mix. I might leave it for the time being, but if a kind soul wants to pick this up, let me know and I can add the playlist you come up with to the second post! :)
     
  7. Haven't you mastered the YouTube playlist yet?
    That's usually more appropriate for PJRetro. Especially since round 84 of PJSC was the first to have a list with all songs on the Spotify playlist

  8. Since I am not sure the YouTube videos I have listed are even the best one for the tracks, I may hold off a bit on learning how to make one for these songs lol

  9. ...is it bad that I wouldn't give one of my own entries my 11, even if I could? One of these other songs is just so much better than anything I've ever submitted.
     
  10. My 'Highland' upload is better quality @berserkboi

     
  11. I only remember how 8 of these go.

    A few are from before I started participating... but generally my 12's do not win.

  12. Anggun would no doubt get my 11 if she were here with La Rose Des Vents (French Version of A Rose In The Wind) but since I have to rate in English, she'll get a high score but the 11 is not a guarantee....

    I have actually given points to a few of these, though I don't recognise any of them as being a 12 in their respective rounds... Could just be me forgetting though...

  13. Hurrah! Will try and get on this soon.
