PJ Retro 77: One Word Edition (Winner revealed!)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Maki, Jun 4, 2022.

  1. My entry for this round came out of a desperation - I literally searched for 'obscure 80s bops' playlist a month or a two ago and hoped for a fitting song to appear. After hearing "Same", I knew that was the one. It totally sounds like it could've been a classic during that decade - the melodic tune and infectious saxophone greatly add to that. It's likely among my very favourite 80s songs I sent to this contest. Also, this is the link I initially heard the song through, featuring the iconically ugly artwork:



    I may or may have not discovered more bops by Sophie, which, by the way, is not a solo artist but an Italian disco project where singers changed over time (the one singing "Same" should be Christina Sartori). I already know the final result but let me pretend I don't and hope for a good placement here.
     
  2. So is Znikając really about snowman love? Kate Bush found beaten to the punch by 1.5 decades!
     
  3. I can't really comment on the song list because obviously it was all revealed to me already, but I love how @Phonetics Girl gave me camouflage by sending a Serbian artist (even though the song is in English), and @Tiger Suit gave her camouflage in return with Justyna.

    Also, glad to see that the Hangman game was a success! Has anyone tried this yet though?
    It can be a fun activity, especially for those who are impatient for the reveals, hehe.
     
  4. I just did! #14 gave me the most trouble, I thought there might have been a typo on that one at first dd
     
  5. Just tumbled through my door from Glastonbury. There’s no way I’ll still be awake at 21:30 so will wake up to coming 23rd tomorrow instead xxx
     
  6. 13 down threw me that way at first! Luckily the act has its stans on the forum...
     
    berserkboi, soratami and Maki like this.
  7. 13 was the first one I got!

    6 was purposefully misleading ddd
     
    soratami, iheartpoptarts and Maki like this.
  8. The reveals are about to begin and the ballots will be revealed in the order in which we received them, with one exception - a certain host ballot was moved to the end. Let's go!

    @Hudweiser


    @invertedbutterfly


    SSQ - Synthicide // ohnoitisnathan = 47
    Kiki Dee - Star // invertedbutterfly = 38
    Emly Starr - Dynamite // Disco Blister = 35
    Radiorama - Aliens // berserkboi = 34
    Hooverphonic - Inhaler // chanex = 33
    The Lemonheads - Rudderless // pop3blow2 = 31
    Lisa Loeb - Alone // unnameable = 30
    Ana Stanić - Sama // Phonetics Girl = 24
    Mioko Yamaguchi - 夏 (Natsu) // Isobel = 22
    Single Gun Theory - Fall // If You Go = 20
    Schiller - Ruhe // Ezz = 20
    Information Society - Think // Untouchable Ace = 17
    Joée - Arriba // iheartpoptarts = 14
    Justyna Steczkowska - Znikając // Tiger Suit = 13
    Living in a Box - Gatecrashing // Hudweiser = 12
    The Star Sisters - Danger // WoW73 = 12
    Olga Voskonyan - Cars // TéléDex = 10

    SSQ takes back the lead and only two songs are on zero now! How long before they get points...
     
  13. Too many of my faves have too few points at this point!

    Hugs @Hudweiser!
