What about people who plan to vote but don't submit songs? I get that it's different but it's kind of weird when people keep doing it.

non entrant voters are specifically welcomed in the rules of the contest
i do this either because i missed the deadline for entering, im not sure if im going to be able to vote, or there was nothing in particular that i wanted to enter at the time

Also theoretically there is a contest maximum, we just haven't hit it in a few years. So it allows people to be engaged even if they don't get to enter.

Probably should've posted this in the last contest, but for anybody who liked Moanin' (the jazz one), I wanted to note that that version of the song is not the original. The original appeared on Charles Mingus' 1960 album Blues & Roots. That version is slower, and since it's a combo instead of a big band, leans much more heavily on fewer instruments. I like the big band version more because of the energy it brings, but the original has one thing over it -- the big band version is polished and tight, all the instruments exactly on the beat for the entire song. The original version showcases, better than almost any other Mingus song, the magic he brought to the rhythm section -- instruments aren't exactly on the beat, but they know exactly where the beat is and they build around it. The result is a firm impression that the band is so good at what they do, and so comfortable playing together, that they can take the music wherever they want to go with it on a whim. Such is the spirit of jazz.

Coming off that, I somehow managed to lose my list of songs I was using to plan out my entries. The list was getting short anyway, and I was wondering if I was running out of music to show you guys. So I went looking, and realized I had forgotten all these bands and songs from when I was teenager and my musical tastes were...........let's say narrower. You guys are probably gonna hate a lot of it, starting with this one. Lol

The entries in this contest are like a parade of excellent band and song names and I pre-emptively love it. Stay tuned for the wails of the damned as I realize how mistaken this impression is.

I did a double-take when I saw one of the artists though. You know who you are (probably).

I promise that you'll hate mine, Vi

I have a near infinite list of music to choose from as I regularly get about a hundred albums a year, and usually most from different bands. Lots of new bands I've never heard of. I won't subject y'all to most of it obviously

Normally I'd playfully suggest you'd hate mine more but this time I trust you.

Out of curiosity, why?

Oh, I assumed you were going to tell us that it was so you could write reviews for your website, badtastes.com

Also, the one for Iceland just links to a video game - I found the song on YouTube

Well I know none of these artists and the profile pictures seem eclectic so high hopes for interesting discoveries

OMG who entered Boot Scootin Boogy?! I’m dying.

I learned a dance to that song ... in kindergarten. Even more odd, it was a Catholic school.
