    I love how eager Senna is, especially with the MC English. God, they were so perfect. Harmonies off, but still a joy.
  2. So impressed and proud that Push Up On Me has hung on this long! Never saw it coming.
  3. Like A Lady
    Tip Toe
    Leading Me On

    They need to leave in a real hurry.
  4. Their harmonies were off quite often. In that regard, they got extremely lucky their voices and tones blended together that well

  5. Hmmmm well. The next two eliminations are tied. Here's what I can reveal :
    • 'a' is a ballad
    • 'b' is a track from Strictly Physical
    You make of that whatever you want!
  6. Well then it's time to make the sacrifice. What You Don't Know goes (which covers both and your 'a' and 'b' tracks together I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_) and then Like a Lady goes out to make the sacrifice worth it.

    Terrible choices.
  8. Well I don't want What You Don't Know to leave, but I've been calling for Like a Lady for like 10-15 eliminations now. The 6 I gave has been my lowest score left for ages.
  9. 'Like a Lady' is neither a ballad or a 'Strictly Physical' track, though.

  10. I understand, so I went ahead and manipulated what you said by making What You Don't Know fit both A and B, and have the other song be something else (Like a Lady)

  11. So the next song is.........

    a ballad.

    and it hurts.



    20. Yesterday's Gone

    Score: 7,761.

    Highest Score: 10 x 5 ( @Remorque , @If You Go , @DJHazey , @plasticFANTASTIC , @Sweet Music )
    Lowest Score: 2 x 1 ( @Sprockrooster )

    "Yesterday's Gone" is a song written by Tim Hawes, Pete Kirtley, Andrew Murray & Christian Ballard and produced by Jiant and Snowflakers for the band's second studio album 'Strictly Physical'. The track has been described as powerful and dramatic emotional winter ballad.

    'Yesterday's Gone' has got to be their most dramatic ballad ever, and God knows, they have a few of them. The most dramatic part of the song is obviously the middle-8, which a lot of you have named the best part of the song. Totto says the ballad is "one of their strongest track in my opinion" and further comments on that bridge : "A powerfull middle-8 is what you need and what you get from this song". eyeline tells the gospel truth as he compares it to Monrose's actual best ballad ; "Nice ballad but not quite on What You Don't Know's level. That middle 8 though." That middle-8, indeed!

    However, it seems not everyone agrees that the middle-8 is the best part of the song. For iheartpoptarts, it might as well be that little bit leading up to this soaring chorus : "The pre-chorus here is the best part, however short." Talking about that soaring chorus, DJHazey shouts it from the top of his lungs just like everyone should, really : "I STILL CRYYYYYYYYYYYYY" YAAAAAAAAAS! *Hearts emojis everywhere* They have my heart in their hands right now as chills are literally sent down my spine. Speechless."

    plastisFANTASTIC compares it to another one of the girls' strongest ballad as he describes this as "The sequel to Shame. This is the kind of pop I guess only continental europeans understand. It's overtly dramatic, full of blips and beeps, a beautiful melody, very t.a.t.u., probably my favourite power ballad they've released." Really? I feel like this would have gone well, even in the States, had someone with a big following released it. Either way, I agree about all these compliments. Sadly, I don't think it's the case of Sprockrooster who believes "their ballads can be really boring". I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_! He does admit that the "The middle-8 saves it from being a total zero." Well, thank God. A ZERO?

    I can't find a single video to link, how sad. So let me just stan for the amazing layered vocals during the chorus. it gives such at atmosphere to the song! It's really a shame to see it leave, but top 20 is a good achievement.​
  12. Good riddance.
  13. I really like watching their performances. They're not super slick, they're not perfect, but that's kind of what I like about them.

    I love Yesterday's Gone!
  14. Just found back that solo performance of 'Feeling Good' from Bahar.

    Messy technique, but she really gets to shine in a way she couldn't really with Senna always trying to steal the spotlight and most of the show-off notes going to Mandy.
  15. How was @Sprockrooster contemplating a 0???? Wow, that masterpiece was down so wrong!
  16. Sorry. Listened again and I am left wondered what there is too like.
  17. For the most part, the ballads need to go at this point. There are just too many top-notch pop bops to justify keeping them around!

  18. By the way this popped up today and I'm still cackling:

    SO BAD!

    Can't believe Catwalk is still in here, I get that it's fun but it's really not a great song, especially not Top20 worthy. That and Tip Toe are the only bad songs left.

  19. This is so embarrassing.
  20. She looks so unconfortable, as if she can't really move her head or all these ornaments would fall off. I mean, they probably would.

    I will go back on bopping to this, thank you.
