  3. Shame no-one else voted for The Pierces. They've been one of my favourite acts for over 10 years now, and with the great exposure and success they had in the UK a few years ago, I was expecting for there to have been at least another voter. They have a lot of fantastic songs, great voices I really love the bite and dark sense of humour their lyrics have.

    You should listen to the Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge and You & I albums. The former is their most original and varied album, and yes, it has plenty of darker sounding songs like Secret:

    You & I is their biggest, poppiest album, full of very well produced songs that sound very full, while still maintaining their unique charm, some highlights aside from You'll Be Mine:

    Their latest album Creation is basically You & I part 2, but not quite as good. It has some great songs though, such as:

    Both sisters are going solo at the moment (someone actually entered a song by one of them in the current round of PJSC), though I hope they re-unite sooner or later.
  4. Emilíana Torrini is another act that nearly made my list, so I'm glad someone voted for her, she's a really interesting a very varied output and a really lovely voice.

    I've actually entered her three times in PJOPS which I imagine might be the largest number of times one person has entered the same act in a song contest ddd

    Some faves:

    From the electronica/trip-hop album Love In The Time of Science:

    From the folk/acoustic album Fisherman's Woman:

    The reggae-tinged lead single from the more eclectic Me and Armini album:

  5. Love in the Time of Science is a fantastic album.
  6. Wait for me to enter Isle Of You on PJSC again ddd
    And it was on PJOPS (or maybe PJ00s) that I found out about her, so thanks!
  7. Trisha Paytas??? I didn't even know she had a singing career to be honest.

    Can't wait to see who @Pecans gave their 40 pointer to... Heidi Montag? Tila Tequila?
  8. I mean......
    Zar-Unity, londonrain, Island and 2 others like this.
  9. Nerina is perfect for when I'm feeling my jaded middle aged housewife fantasy

    The Pierces must have been the very first act I discovered through Spotify. It was this song and it's probably still my favourite from them

    And I have a soft spot for this one (love the cemetery setting)
  10. 'Insomnia' is my fave too!

  12. Not quite, just their 20 pointer. *see above*
  13. Touche. Superficial still pops off... Is Paris Hilton still in???

    This feels low for Enrique, he needs a comeback to make people remember all the bops.

  14. Again, so sorry but I promise you and I match on at least one artist. Hope this makes up for it.
    Ana Raquel and berserkboi like this.
  15. Indeed, if she's in at all. TBD
  16. The Pierces, Emilíana Torrini, and Nerina Pallot are all artists I used to listen to a lot, but sort of forgot about in the past few years. This countdown is like finding a bunch of great clothes in the back of your closet.
  17. Absolutely spot on - I'd totally forgotten about how much of an absolute bop "Escape" was until the post just then. The power of this rate!
  18. @londonrain the taste jumped out! I was so worried no one else would vote for him.
  19. Not two voters for Heidi Montag when several - how do I put this - more acclaimed artists getting one voter. Never change PJ.
  20. Acclaim is nothing compared to personal preference though.
