We're really starting from PJSC 86 when I won both 84 and 85
If it makes you feel better, Androgyne would easily get another 12 from me here!
Well I will be participating to shamelessly give my winning entry the 12 it deserves and will definitely need.
Also I assembled this playlist in order rank my entries and I don't even know where to begin...though I might know where it would end I Follow You.
I will say though that the string of flops I suffered in the Spring and Summer of 2020 are iconic and would all be easily in the top 10:
This is where I enter the danger zone and worry because I love 90% of the songs you submitted but in reality probably only voted for 20% of them.
All the Song Contest Google Sheets having a different layout from each other certainly made this like a berserky ballot to sort through ddd
It's no surprise that the Top 5 is Foreign Language on this present day, I guess!
Demis Roussos - "Quand je t'aime" PJRetro 52 (17)
(It was always gonna be the first song to show me the power of music in driving me to tears as a little boy)

(Goddess Celia giving one of the most stunning vocals over a soft refrain, the power of simplicity)

That was epic. I was thinking the same thing about the different columns for all of the google sheets.
I suddenly wish I'd kept a list of my own entries somewhere. I think the highest I've ever come is 8th, but I'm still a nugu newb at this... or feel like one.
I know Chantal and Wayne need my prayers but I'd have to vote for about twice as many winners as I did in the original rounds hmm... Anyway! I like lists, whoa-ho-ho!

These lists are epic! I like how you could pretty much identify the contestant from the styles/genres/performers they submit. It’s almost the equivalent of a personalised Popjustice fingerprint.
I’ve compiled mine and listened to the playlist I put together, and it’s become clear there’s a through-line connecting all my entries across the 4 contests: pure pop - and if there’s dubious choreography to match it, all the better! Oh, other than them being pretty much amazing and they should have had top 10 placings of course.
I dont understand these lists at all
Whilst voting is open, folk are ranking the entries they submitted to PJSC, PJ Retro, PJ00s and PJXtra during 2020. Let it never be said this forum doesn't jump at the opportunity for a list! You're very welcome to do the same if you're so inclined.
Tomorrow we'll start delving into the winning songs.
FIRST BALLOT RECEIVED!
That's right it was she, it was me.
My 2020 PJSC entries personal ranking (from most favorite to least favorite):
Tenille Arts - Somebody Like That (#14) Round 96
Claudia Valentina - 4:15 (#1) Round 97
Tape Machines (feat. Mia Pfirrman) - Arms Of Gold (#27) Round 94
Michael Medrano - Fluids (#7) Round 88
Klara Hammarström - Nobody (#20) Round 91
Hedda Mae - Madness (#11) Round 95
Giulia Be - Too Bad (#50) Round 86
Jake Germain - Over U (#21) Round 87
Leah Kate - Fuck Up The Friendship (#31) Round 92
Carla Fernandes - Por Qué (#47) Round 93
Lina Hedlund - Breathe (#48) Round 89
Lina Mayer - So High (#44) Round 90
I still listen to this.
Are you participating in the PJ Grammys? Let's vote for her for Best New artist. It's what she deserves.
I was pondering that possibility. I probably will now.
Let's take a closer look at the songs we'll be voting for in the first...
SONGLIST SPOTLIGHT (#1)
"Du och jag precis som Courtney
Fick jag min Kurt Cobain"
ARTIST: Krista Siegfrids
CONTEST: PJXtra 3 (June 2020)
WINNING POINTS TOTAL: 106
SUBMITTED BY: @Doodvid
FIERCEST OPPONENT: 'Devinez' by Zoë (86 points) @WoW73
The less said about the historical innacuracy of a 1996 Spice Girls poster on the single cover, the better.
We'll never know if Krista blitzed the competition due to the fact it was only up against 19 other songs or whether it's just because '1995' is a cute bop and a half, but it became my second winning song across the contests in the space of 2 months. It was the only entry to breach the 100 point total in PJXtra 3 although in this particular Rumble it holds the distinction of being the third lowest scoring winning entry of 2020.
"There's a knock on my door
Every quarter past four"
ARTIST: Claudia Valentina
CONTEST: PJSC 97 (December 2020)
WINNING POINTS TOTAL: 123
SUBMITTED BY: @saviodxl
BITTER ENEMY: 'Attention' by Brooke (105 points) @OspreyQueen
@saviodxl comfortably sneaked their first victory of 2020 in the final month of the year and subsequently snatched 1 of 3 remaining spaces in the Rumble songlist with the sultry sound of Claudia Valentina. The song itself is described by the record label as being "an anthem for anybody familiar with the “U up?” text from fuckboys the world over ". @saviodxl certainly played to the audience, right? (NOTE: avoid accidentally searching for 'Claudia Valentine' unless you're after a very *different* type of "entry" if you know what I mean...)
"Head hurts and I'm restless
Can't deal with your bullshit
I know, yeah, I know that it's true"
SONG: '5 Of Your Exes'
CONTEST: PJSC 87 (February 2020)
WINNING POINTS TOTAL: 123
SUBMITTED BY: @DJHazey
MOST POWERFUL FOE: 'CHALO' by Celina Sharma (120 points) @imaduck
In a closely fought battle for the top spot way back in February last year (oh for those naive days of truly not knowing what was to come), @DJHazey walked away with a first PJSC gold medal with a worthy winner that also stands out in this contest for another significant reason. '5 Of Your Exes' is small but perfectly formed, clocking in at just 2 minutes and 18 seconds. It therefore has the shortest duration of all our 2020 winning entries (although not the shortest of all the PJSC entries last year - that distinction goes to my Big Brother fake girlband Kandy Floss With A K and 'I Want It All') Did VVAVES provide us with the ultimate example of Spotify playlist bait? Who cares? It won!
ALREADY LIVING FOR THESE WRITE-UPS @Doodvid. Classics upon classics upon classics.
Will the write-up for Erika Vikman (the artist I just missed out on entering) be filled with bitterness, resentment and a simmering anger that cannot ever be extinguished?
I forgot to reply yesterday!
If you gave points to the men:
If you didn't:
@Doodvid - to say I am perched to read the upcoming write-ups is an understatement!
Separate names with a comma.
