PJOPS 37: Decade vs Decade! Winner revealed!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by CorgiCorgiCorgi, Feb 23, 2018.

  1. panics reading deadline that is now very close!
     
  2. Let me know if you guys need an extension!
     
  3. I hope not, but work of late has been rather too hectic... I never have to do anything at home, until these last couple of weeks! I need a peaceful relaxed job instead...
     
  4. Ok so I missed out on the last round, but pulled it together this round and just made my submission. Fingers crossed.

  5. Despite what I said, still no chance to really look at this, sorry!

    If it's ok to get a submission in by the end of tomorrow I think I'm good for that (hope to have work project done by the end of this evening) but if you need to crack on with the round then don't let me hold you up!

  6. We got another veto!



    Reason for veto, as per wikipedia: "Dinah Washington won a Grammy Award in 1959 for Best Rhythm and Blues Performance with this song. Her version was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.[4] It also earned her first top ten pop hit, reaching number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100."

    I can extend the vote by a day! There's a couple other people I'm waiting on who said they might be interested, so don't feel guilty.

    Votes are now due Saturday at 11:59 PM (so, about 30 hours from the time of this post).

  7. I'm really looking forward to seeing the list for this round. Judging by the vetoes, it seems like it'll be pretty varied.
     
  8. This is such a classic that I would have felt compelled to throw points at it. Hasn't basically everyone with any sort of jazz pretensions covered this at some point?

  10. Poor Dinah, but it was a stretch before I got to know it actually got a grammy for that specific song.

    Either way. I am through after three vetoes. Yas.

  12. Thanks, appreciate it!

    Something has been sent... we shall see...

    ...I'm in!!! Happy Saturday morning all! Now back to my breakfast!

  14. The Old Songs

    There were only four pre-1960s songs that made it to the round, and two of them were the only ones from that decade. An automatic win is no fun - so I’ve grouped these four together! Though really, all four of you win bragging rights for digging so far back for these.

    Scott Joplin - Magnetic Rag

    Raymond Scott Quintette - New Years Eve in a Haunted House

    Nilla Pizzi - Questo è Amore

    The Chordettes - Pink Shoelaces


    The 1980s

    The 1980s saw the emergence of dance music and new wave. As disco fell out of fashion in the decade's early years, genres such as post-disco, Italo disco, Euro disco and dance-pop became more popular. Rock music continued to enjoy a wide audience. Soft rock, glam metal, thrash metal, shred guitar characterized by heavy distortion, pinch harmonics and whammy bar abuse became very popular. Adult contemporary, quiet storm, and smooth jazz gained popularity. In the late 1980s, glam metal became the largest, most commercially successful brand of music in the United States and worldwide.

    Bonnie Bianco - Miss You So

    Romeo Void - Never Say Never

    D.A.F. - Der Räuber und der Prinz

    Gwen Guthrie - Good To Go Lover

    Anneli Saaristo - La Dolce Vita

    Jimmy Dean - Troll

    Gyan - Wait

    Clio - Eyes

    Carola - When Two Worlds Collide

    Tol & Tol - Eleni

    Made - Niets Is Voor Altijd

    Margaret Urlich - Number One (Remember When We Danced)

    Ruby Turner - I'm In Love

    Juice Newton - A Little Love


    The 1990s

    Popular music in the 1990s saw the continuation of teen pop and dance-pop trends which had emerged in the 1970s and 1980s. Furthermore, hip hop grew and continued to be highly successful in the decade, with the continuation of the genre's golden age. Aside from rap, reggae, contemporary R&B and urban music in general remained extremely popular throughout the decade; urban music in the late-1980s and 1990s often blended with styles such as soul, funk and jazz, resulting in fusion genres such as new jack swing, neo-soul, hip hop soul and g-funk which were popular.
