PJ00s 42: (There's Gotta Be) More To Life: winner announced!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by londonrain, Dec 14, 2021.

  1. 5/10, I passed!

    (I got two of the groups and managed to guess the connection between one of the ones I didn't get)

    Regardless of your answer there should be a “more info” link immediately under the “correct!” or “incorrect!” notification, that gives you the actual answer.

    The answer was “acts previously entered in PJ Retro or PJ00s”.

    Also, one of those groups is relevant to the final results…
     
  3. This is among the two categories I couldn't guess. The other one was something even more difficult for me, but I guess it's because I didn't take part in PJ00s since the beginning.
     
  4. It's because I don't pay attention to what anyone else is doing in this contest.
    Love you all!
     
  5. I was suspecting of @soratami and even myself at some point
     
  6. Somebody's finally gonna win this time?
    I bet it's @Doodvid.
     
  7. I think we will see @londonrain do a back to back this time!

    With this forum’s allergy to featured rappers?

    I’m still salty about the time an Anggun entry featuring Pras flopped.

     
  9. It’s time for...

    Convoluted Contest Connections That Nobody Asked For : with pop3blow2
    !

    So, once I saw this was a number themed round I decided to get creative with my entry.

    As an Alice/Carroll fanatic (and since the number features heavily in his books), I started my song search with the idea of falling through the center of earth (which scientists use to think would take 42 minutes & was used by Carroll as a jumping off point in his works). This led me to The Shins… and the song ‘Red Rabbits’ from their 2007 album.

    "Hurled to the center of the Earth again
    The place where it's hot, love, you know it hurts to breathe in
    And the watershed you balance on is begging it
    Well did he ever know, will he ever know"



    I didn’t really want that song, though, but I now liked the idea of submitting them. So, I went back to one of my faves of theirs…. which incidentally is off an equally math/earth themed album title Oh, Inverted World. So, I went with 'Know Your Onion!'... a song I just adore.

    "Lucked out, found my favorite record
    Lying in wait at the Birmingham mall
    The songs that I heard
    The occasional book were the only fun I ever took
    And I got on with making myself

    And the trick is just making yourself"

    (The video is just really simple & cute, to me, too.)



    ‘Know Your Onion!’ was the perfect song choice for a couple of reasons. One is that always connects to The Beatles song ‘Glass Onion’ in my brain (The Shins are obviously Beatles disciples)… which is also very much one of Lennon’s meta-Carrollian romps. (He's a big Alice nerd, too.)*



    More importantly 'Know Your Onion!' was in the Gilmore Girls. As such, it becomes the third song I have featured from show in my contest entries. One of the others was in PJRETRO: ‘Where The Colors Don’t Go’ by Sam Phillips.



    Interestingly, according to Wikipedia’ the number 42 is : ‘The angle rounded to whole degrees for which a rainbow appears’. Where the colors do go, it seems!

    As someone long obsessed with trying to make perfect mixtapes & playlists, I still contend the Gilmore Girls soundtrack ('Our Little Corner Of The World') is the most perfect mixtape ever made.

    Anyways, I fell down some #42 rabbit holes while picking my song & found some fun articles on the internet. Here's a couple.

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/for-math-fans-a-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-number-42/


    *PS: The Beatles last public performance (the rooftop concert) was 42 minutes long. Very interesting.

    My entry was prompted by the fact that 3LW's thread is actually on the verge of crossing the page limit to be vetoed, and the fact that their second album (on which I Do appears) has finally been put on Spotify. I Do was the last single by 3LW before Naturi (the one member who doesn't have a solo on that song) was allegedly forced out of the group following a fight in KFC with the other two members, Adrienne and Kiely, as well as Kiely's mother, culminating in Kiely throwing a plate of food in Naturi's face. The group's commercial fortunes never really recovered after Naturi left, and Adrienne and Kiely ended up abandoning the group in favour of The Cheetah Girls. Adrienne Bailon's solo track SuperBad was an unjustly overlooked #45 flop in PJ00s 4:



    Also, does anyone remember the era when P. Diddy was trying very hard to make Loon happen by chucking him onto various R&B girls' tracks in the early noughties?

  11. My entry ended up being obvious! Discovered it on @soratami ‘s French Divas Rate, ended up being my favourite of the recent songs there due to the great lyrics, some Pop R&B flavour for host baiting, and singer’s first name close to Amiel! Ddd
     
  12. This Soap Opera Round is lit! Oh wait, wrong contest

    Getting this in before anyone asks: I have not rearranged the ballots this time except to put my own ballot last, just so that none of you know the result before the final ballot is revealed. So there's no deeper meaning to the order of the ballots - it's literally just the order in which they came in.

    What has the Popjustice forum symbolised to you in 2021?

    Apparently nothing, as @ComeOnGloria didn't give me an answer.

    Also nothing, seemingly. Oh well. This side theme is going swimmingly so far...

    I feel like there are several French acts who should be paying @berserkboi to be on their street teams for all the promo he did in 2021. Goal for 2022: get @berserkboi to describe your entry as "AMAZING BALLS!"
     
  20. I feel a lot less guilty about my side-theme answer now, so that's good at least!
