CD15 - Anima15 - Results


Without further ado, the winning track with 107 points is ‘The Ground Walks With Time In A Box’ by Modest Mouse, as chosen by *ahem* me. Second with 82 points was ‘The Love Cats’ by The Cure, as chosen by Franck, and then we have a tie for the bronze medal with 77 points each, ‘Techno Fan’ by The Wombats, as chosen by Bob and ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’ by The Pixies, as chosen by Kate.

 

Champions of guessing who put on what were: Neil and Bob with 5 guesses each. Of those who chose to guess at who put on what, Rob and Sam were the worst, totally failing to identify anyone other than themselves. The extent of Rob’s and Sam’s failure is only highlighted by the presence of a track which had Pete Quinn’s name written all over it – it could only have been more obviously Pete’s track if it had been called ‘Pete Quinn’s Track’ by ‘The Band Chosen By Pete Quinn’. Indeed Pete Quinn was the most picked out person, being identified only 7 times!! We had several people evading detection completely this time, those being: Pete H, Sam, me, Bob, Rob, Neil, Howard and Pete K.

 

Franck’sThe Love Cats’ made it onto most people’s scoresheets – well 14/17 anyway. The tracks making onto the fewest number of scoresheets being ‘Marvin Gaye’ and ‘You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth’ which brings us nicely on to the wooden spoon.

 

Well, Pete H had a good run at it by dipping into the pool of music that is down with the kids of today, Jasper failed to appreciate the sense of ‘meh’ most people feel about Meat Loaf, and the level to which people found the opening dialogue irritating, and so ‘You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth’ scored only 9 points. Jasper remains convinced that this a personal thing, but I will point out that only 3 people thought it was his track, and I do the utmost to guard the identity of all contributors at all times.

CD14 - TORRENT14L FANTAS14 - Results

How remiss of me - I came to post the results for CD 15 and saw that the results for CD14 had never been posted. Well without further ado, the results for CD 14 are:

First things first. The winner, and new to the podium (being more familiar with the business end of a wooden spoon) is MICK LEWUS with Snow (Hey Oh) (95 points). So, congratulations to Mick. Silver medal goes to Rob for English Summer Rain (more about that in a bit) (92 points) and the bronze goes to Bob for London Thunder (88 points). An honourable mention must also go to Franck’s Le Vent Nous Portera for missing out on a podium spot by a single point.

 

So – on to the guessers of who put on what …

 

We have joint winners in Neil and Katja who guessed 8 contributors correctly (including their own). This is especially amazing when you consider that they outperformed Psychic Pete by 3 points.

 

The person most frequently picked out was … wait for it … Franck! Franck was picked out 11 times, failing to pull off the double-bluff by putting on a French track. Two of the people who bothered guessing thought it was someone other than Franck. Next most easily identified were Jim and Pete Quinn– picked out 6 times each. Avoiding detection completely this time we had four people! Katja, Mick, Bob and Allan.

 

OK – the wooden spoon … Sam, Sam, Sam, Sam! 5 points for ‘Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer’ but it could have been so different if you had submitted your first choice track a little earlier, you’d have beaten Rob to it and been able to put on ‘English Summer Rain’ thus securing the silver medal!
