65 (Yeah I see the typo idgaf) THE ULTRAVOX UK SINGLES RATE 1977-1987 by: @simes1970 Average: 6.314 Highest Score: 10 x 4, @Terminus @dancingwithmyself @ufint @aaronhansome Lowest Score: 0 x 1, @GimmeWork ohnostalgia: 6.5 send photo: 4 How about this for an easy elimination... please? The host didn't even turn up and I don't think any of the voters are that attached to it. Listening back to this I wish I had been nicer because that chorus is properly sweeping. And look at that average! Quite the jump for still being in the bottom 10. My co-host had this to say, "I've always had a soft spot for orchestras. Fantasia me a bitsy." It's okay sis, Fantasia 2000 may have been eliminated but I think the original is still kicking around. @NecessaryVoodoo (6.5) has actually heard of them beforehand, "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes would've gotten a higher score here. Sorry about it." My mind is all Kesha but @A&E (7) knows what you mean, "It's a travesty Dancing With Tears in My Eyes aka their best song ended up 13th!!! This one is fine though, I enjoy the subdued drama." Talk about synergy! Out of sync is @constantino (2) who wrongly predicted the bottom song, "Um what the fuck is this?? Who thought this was a good idea?? Someone has to come last, I guess…" Better luck at the derby sis. @evilsin (5) enjoys the montage theme, "I like how it goes too-doo... too-doo too-doo." And I remember @Slice of Life (3) using this very same commentary in my Pokérate, "Too nothingy." At least he recycles, eco-bae. @DJHazey (3) had similar complaints, "Umm...the chorus puts some life into it I guess. I don't want to offend anyone but I really don't know what else to say, this is literally doing nothing for me." My mum @Squashua (4.5) reflects on memories of his mother, "Another of my Mum's old school faves. She said this always used to creep her out but strangely hypnotise her (in between glasses of wine down the local pub). I'm halfway there - it's atmospheric and interesting but I don't really feel like I want to sit through it all again anytime soon." Okay but you don't take me drinking, way to break the family tradition. "An important, influential track (it definitely had a strong influence in Björk creating the spectacular fantastic out-of-this-world brilliant incredible sensational wonderful one-of-a-kind drop-dead gorgeous phenomenal Homogenic, for example)" cites @Kuhleezi (8.5). Björk stan @Animalia (7) couldn't be bothered to comment but @kalonite (7.5) has "*Lighters in the air*" for him. @GimmeWork (0), on the other hand, lights himself on fire, "Not sure what I just watched/listened to?!?! When it comes to songs called Vienna, I'll take Billy Joel only thank you.” You do you sis. @Reboot (8) accurately replies a "beautifully understated" as @KingBruno (9) adds, "This sounds amazing. The sinister tone in here is amazing.” Lightly passing is @sfmartin (8), "I accept that it's a classic, but it's a bit too sparse for my liking. It just plods along. But it's an enjoyable plod." It's not up to par with the competition for @berserkboi (8.5), "Nice but lesser than the last lot of songs". The bottom ten eases up on former host @Sprockrooster (7), "Vienna is a fantastic song, but even in this crowd I am finding it to hard to score it higher than I do now." @Remorque (8) couldn't bring himself to give this another perfect score, "I gave this my 11 in the Ultravox Singles Rate, so I can’t help but give this a high score… Yet, I do think it’s quite doomed to be one of the first cuts here theaux." Luckily for Ultravox new fans @aaronhansome ("This was a trip? Wow.") and @ufint ("Holy shit. This is epic in every sense. Love at first listen.") came through with the tens. Maybe they're even bopping to it on Spotify as we speak!
