    Casey Donovan - What's Going On



    Score: 7.628

    My Score: 6.5
    Highest: 11 x 1 (@livefrommelbs) 10 x 3 (@Phonetics Girl, @Slice of Life, @Robsolete)
    Lowest: 4 x 2 (@Blond, @Verandi)

    Casey Donovan is an Australian singer best known for winning the second season of Australian Idol in 2004. Something she has in common with our last eliminated artist, Melissa O'Neill, is that she was the youngest contestant to win the show at just 16.

    What's Going On was the second single from Casey's first and only studio album For You. It was released in 2005 and charted at #18 in Australia. Also fun fact, as @livefrommelbs pointed out earlier in the thread, the song was originally written by Australian duo The Veronicas.

    @Sprockrooster (7) - Cute next to gorgeous.

    @unnameable (8) - Very pleasant rock ballad.

    @Memoria (8.5) - Probably my favourite discovery of the rate.

    @berserkboi (9) - Strong!

    @DJHazey (9) - I don’t even think I could add it on Spotify back during the Aussie TV Girls Rate, so this is a nice little surprise. Boy was she down wrong in that rate; let’s fix it!

    @livefrommelbs (11) - Many a song in here that could have had my 11, but I've got to give it to my girl Casey. Partially because the ghouls can't be trusted to underscore this, but mostly because it's one of my all-time fave 00s tracks, and defs in my top 10 pop-rock anthems from the era. Casey just has such fragility and emotion in her voice during the verses, which transposes to proper vitriol for the chorus. Wigs flew! Not only that, any pop-rock that incorporates a piano melody deserves top marks too. It's got The Veronicas' songcraft all over it, elevated by one of Australia's most underrated pop voices.

  2. Also, tomorrow's elimination is the first song to go with multiple 11s!

    It has to be La La. Right? RIGHT??
    I know it has its stans, but lyrically/vocally, it is a damn mess.

  5. Bye Sk8ter Boi
  6. Bye Confessions of a Broken Vocal Cord
  7. Wow, you’re serving up hot takes like pancakes in this thread
  8. I mean, it's exactly the kind of song I could see getting both multiple 11s and a bunch of low scores, so it seems like a good guess for the next elimination.

    @Phonetics Girl I will riot with you. Time was the formative song for me between 2000-2004. I’m still bitter they took down the original music video and cut it up with movie scenes. I even tried looking for the original for this rate, but unless @slaybellz worked some magic, I think it’s lost forever.

    In This Life should’ve stayed longer, but it’s clear some of these voters didn’t spend too much time with the Canadians.

    I know this is our host’s fault for spelling it wrong in the song list, but it’s Misfit, not Misfits.
  12. Oops! Why did no one tell me?
  13. I'm not sure anyone cared enough about poor Amy to bring it up teehee x

  15. #34 EDIT: #31

    Chantal Kreviazuk - Time



    Score: 7.993

    My Score: 7.5
    Highest: 11 x 2 (@ohnostalgia, @Epic Chocolat) 10 x 4 (@Phonetics Girl, @Slice of Life, @Guy, @Music Is Death)
    Lowest: 5 x 2 (@Ana Raquel, @AlmostFamous)

    Time was the second single from Chantal's third album What If It All Means Something. It was released in 2003 and did not chart.

    Over the years Chantal's music has featured in a number of tv shows and movies, including this song, but it's probably most notably known for appearing the film Uptown Girls, and it's soundtrack.

    @saviodxl (5.5) - These teenage girl movie soundtrack tunes sometimes sound all the same, right?

    @DJHazey (6.75) - Sounds like the first time a ‘soft moment of whatever’ from The Veronicas would have me forgetting about its existence.

    @Sprockrooster (8) - I particularly love the violins here, but it is far from the best poprock song called Time. In case you haven’t heard it: Anastacia’s Time is the best poprock song ever. Facts are facts.

    @berserkboi (9) - Gorgeous instrumental touches and melody!

    @Memoria (8.5) - I had never even heard of Chantal Kreviazuk before this rate but she's been a great discovery. Both songs have a 2000s movie soundtrack quality about them, but Time is my favourite of the two.

    @Epic Chocolat (11) - Exhilarating. A classic soundtrack song full of hope, joy.

  16. Yikes! All my negative scores are gone, but I'd have liked other songs to fall before this!

    @slaybellz I just had to edit the title briefly, don't report me ddddd.
  19. Haha. Well I will be taking a slight break from eliminations today so the title is apt!
  20. Time is absolutely beautiful! It was played in laguna beach when they graduated but it’s been switched when the episode re airs . It’s sentimental without being mushy.
