  1. What a fantastic rate, to be honest! Even though I was rooting for Brooklyn Nights, either one of them are fantastic, worthy winners. Thank you so much @Maki for your dedication and your amazing, very insightful write-ups! I've learnt a lot of background info I would've never known hadn't it been for this rate!
     
  2. Very happy to have joined this rate, thank you so much for hosting @Maki, really took some time in between working hours, and they were filled with joy, especially after listening to the versions after each elimination post and reminding of the songs. Glad Nothing On (But The Radio) won, my 11 and a deserved winner, but Second Time Around should have been top 3!
     
    berserkboi, sesita, soratami and 3 others like this.
  3. I was happy with any eventuality in the end.
    Thank you @Maki
     
  4. Aww, thank you so much for kind words! I definitely owe you all a huge thank you, but later...

    ...because we're not completely done yet. Before I reveal some general and interesting stats about the rate, let's take a look how the top 5 changed depending on the number of voters:

    5. Second Time Around


    Yeah, another proof of winner's complete domination.
    This is pretty much a continuation of top 10 changes I posted a while ago.

    Also, I'm still accepting guesses for the minigame, so that will have its mini result reveal, too.
     
  5. This was a fun & educational Gaga journey @Maki! Thanks for all the time & effort you put in.
     
  6. @Maki your knowledge about these deep cuts is amazing and honestly making me a bit envious. I wish I knew as much! You have done amazing!
     
  7. I was on Team Nothing On (But the Radio) the whole time!

    I gave both songs 10 but Nothing On... was my almost 11, until I listened to Second Time Around one night, and it hit me emotionally. I almost gave Brooklyn Nights 9.8 but upped it to 10 on the last day. All three songs are great and would easily fit into her discography if they were made into finished songs.
     
  8. Wow, NOBTR really RAAAAAN away with the damn victory. Thanks for a great rate, @Maki !
     
  9. Pat

    Pat

    Thanks @Maki for hosting!
     

  10. That's some Madge-Rate-Energy in this comment mister MAKI and I am WATCHING.
    Just kidding. Actually happy to see the real winner. I did predict it, hun? Even if I missed the rest of the top5 dd.

    Good job with this rate! It was so much fun, from listening to all these songs to scoring and waiting for every elimination. I wish I had been more active, but I was always lurking. First rate I joined as well!
     
  11. Now, we have a section called "What could've been".

    @BreatheBox saw this thread and wanted to vote, but the deadline has occurred a long time before that, so they sent their scores to me during the eliminations, and it feel appropriate to reveal how the hypothetical leaderboard would've looked like if their scores were included.

    Starting with the bottom 10, which is... exactly the same! The average scores are bumped a bit for most of the songs, which is the only change:

    60. World Family Tree (3.807)
    59. Fountain of Truth (4.773)
    58. Master Heartbreaker (live) (4.843)
    57. You’re All My Little Monsters (5.159)
    56. Cake Like Lady Gaga (5.277)
    55. When She Go/Go, Go, Go (5.383)
    54. Your Freakin' Car (5.656) + new highest scorer with a 9, along with me
    53. Stuck on Fuckin' You (5.907)
    52. We Are Plastic (Melt In the Summer) (5.997)
    51. Changing Skies (6.149)

    Further up in the leaderboard, it appears that there's a tie, but since @BreatheBox gave "Something Crazy" a 9.4 (by the way, the only section where he used 10s of decimals!), which is the higher score than the highest score of "Superstar" (which, on contrary, got a 2 from @BreatheBox), causing the latter to take a tumble from #42 to #48 - the biggest change in position from this ballot. And there are quite a few minor changes, including a downfall of two of my faves, so I do not approve this.

    50. Words (6.219)
    49. Ribbons (6.277)
    48. Superstar (6.329) DOWN 6 + new lowest scorer with a 2
    47. Something Crazy (6.329) UP 1 + new highest scorer with a 9.4
    46. Fancy Pants (6.351)
    45. Electric Kiss (6.353)
    44. Oh Baby (6.411) DOWN 1
    43. Posh Life (6.423) UP 4
    42. Shut Up (6.441) DOWN 1
    41. Blueberry Kisses (6.496) UP 3 + new highest scorer with a 10


    Into the top 40, where there was possibly the highest amount of small score difference, and most of the songs suffered a certain gain or loss.


    40. Retrosexual (6.586) DOWN 1
    39. Reel Cool (6.593) UP 1
    38. Kandy Life (6.676) DOWN 3
    37. Red and Blue (6.694) DOWN 1
    36. No Floods (6.706) UP 1
    35. Hollywood (6.736) DOWN 1
    34. Shake Your Kitty (6.787) UP 2 + new highest scorer with a 10
    33. Wish You Were Here (6.807)
    32. Sexy Ugly (6.810)
    31. Captivated (6.843)


    Meanwhile, in the top 30, "Future Love" gets bumped up, while "Panty Party" suffers the biggest drop (to which I say: NO). More importantly, my 11 falls out of the top 20, and makes me glad they didn't see the thread earlier, hehe.


    30. Panty Party (6.907) DOWN 3
    29. Spin U Around (6.913)
    28. Oh Well (6.931) UP 2
    27. Take You Out (6.946) DOWN 2
    26. Future Love (7.021) UP 2 + new (second) highest scorer with a 10
    25. Filthy Pop (7.024) UP 1
    24. The Greatest Thing (7.033)
    23. New York (7.284)
    22. Freakshow (7.336)
    21. Trigger (7.339) DOWN 1


    Moving on, "Love Sick Girl/Yay Ha" is the only new entry in the top 20, which actually swapped places with "Trigger". Besides that, not much changed, except from a few songs swapping spots and "Earthquake" being pushed out of the top 10. Also, @BreatheBox gave his 11 to "Rockshow", which remained stable at the #15 spot.


    20. Love Sick Girl/Yay Ha (7.353) UP 1
    19. Fever (7.547)
    18. Wonderful (7.549) + new (second) highest scorer with a 10
    17. Glitter and Grease (7.740) DOWN 1
    16. Fooled Me Again (7.783) UP 1 + new (second) highest scorer with a 10
    15. Rockshow (7.886) + new highest scorer with an 11
    14. Vanity (7.901) DOWN 1
    13. Stache (7.903) UP 1
    12. Let Love Down (8.084)
    11. Earthquake (8.101) DOWN 1


    The top 10 is where things get a bit more interesting. While "Animal" and "Retro-Physical" hold onto their original positions, "Dirty Ice Cream" becomes the only new top 10 entry and sails to #9, with "Out of Control" also gaining. On the other hand, "Reloaded" nearly falls out of the top 10. Ouch.

    10. Reloaded (8.139) DOWN 2
    9. Dirty Ice Cream (8.183) UP 2 + new highest scorer with a 10
    8. Out of Control (8.197) UP 1 + new highest scorer with a 10
    7. Animal (8.234) + new (second) highest scorer with a 10
    6. Retro-Physical (8.487)


    In the top 5, we welcome a new medalist! "No Way" swaps places with "Fashion" and snatches the (hypothetical) bronze medal, by only 0.2 of total point difference.

    5. Second Time Around (8.563)
    4. Fashion (8.834) DOWN 1
    3. No Way (8.840) UP 1 + new highest scorer with a 10
    2. Brooklyn Nights (8.924) + new (second) highest scorer with a 10
    1. Nothing On (But the Radio) (9.786) + new (second) highest scorer with a 10


    Of course, "Nothing On (But the Radio)" remains unbothered and reigns supreme, further gaining in average score.


    As for the sections, this is how things changed there:

    7. Early years (5.559)
    6. Born This Way sessions (5.738)
    5. Red and Blue EP (6.551)
    4. The Fame sessions (7.032)
    3. Pre-Fame sessions (Team Love Child) (7.085)
    2. ARTPOP sessions (7.132)
    1. The Fame Monster sessions (8.055)

    Except from the average scores, actually they didn't change. They all stayed exactly in the same position, despite the extremely close total averages in The Fame, Pre-Fame and ARTPOP sessions sections.

    Some tidbits from the commentary that @BreatheBox left:

    Hollywood (7) - love this one so much
    Fountain of Truth (6) - her vocals are so cute in this song
    World Family Tree (2) - pretty trash
    Something Crazy (9.4) - so raw and magical, she already sounded like a superstar by then
    Red and Blue (9.6) - this is her One of the Boys (but better really)
    Blueberry Kisses (10) - the piano and the background vocals..used to hate this one for some reason but now I love it
    Fever (10) - love how the piano switches up at the end cry

    @BreatheBox about his commentary: "you can basically see where I gave up originally ffff"


    1. Nothing On (But the Radio) (9.786)
    2. Brooklyn Nights (8.924)
    3. No Way (8.840) UP 1
