I think one can find enjoyment from both. Although, if you want to analyze both and explain why, I'm open to hearing that. I would think that's more helpful then just insulting.

Since drealmerz should still be able to access the entries and voting ballot, I'm not going to waive his requirement to vote in this contest.

Hi folks, Ill update it myself when I get the moment, but I was looking at the Song Contest wiki for a song and saw the modded section. From what I can remember ShadowLurker made the first two, I did the next 2, maybe 3, then JDodge and I ran it for a while, then we fell out over spreadsheet columns (really) and he ran it for a large number of contests solo. He passed it on to Matias/Seraphim (can't remember who but Ill take a look). But I definitely didn't run it up to 86, I can't remember the exact number but it would surprise me massively if it was above 40.

ETA: And who is seriously letting Parama win contests now?! I go away from 20/30 song contests and this happens! :P

Oh yeah, I added that for....some reason. I don't really remember why.

But I recall not putting in a ton of effort to figure out who modded all the contests because there were a lot of them and I don't think it was always clear who was the mod because the SC account just stayed the same. So yeah feel free to correct it.

I think the more song contests we do the more i grade on a curve, at least as far as the numbers go. or i can't really explain why i have so many 6s and 7s when closing time is really the cut off for "would listen again on purpose".

Glad you like it! They're pretty good, especially live. Here's my translation of the lyrics:

Madeira

(You) touch me and (it) burns
Incinerate the [stubborness]
that loving has form
that love has norm

(You) say my name
(I) lose my pronoun
I'm free and everything flows
I'm more than I have been

(You) accept me and (I) sprout
(I) boil, emerge volcano
surrounded by sea, love without condition ["mar" = sea; "amar" = to love]
Of nothing devotee
I'm island, raw nation
Surrounded by sea, love without condition

Didn't really like this contest overall. I wasn't expecting to place Amy Winehouse in my top three when I first saw she was in, but I did. Talking Heads was a nice surprise. I liked the drum jazz. Secret Smile would have ranked higher.

I guess I picked the right song to submit then lol.

There were like 2-3? others on the album i considered.
As the last rays of sunlight fade, one killer chases another through the tangled madness of the city.
A flash of steel announces the presence of his quarry.
The stage is set.
The night explodes.
