Results GQ3: Mexican Standoff - Round 4

Yet another round where none of y'all got a full score. Is this getting harder? Anyway; the songs were:
  • Song 156: Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger. Y'all had this one, which could be a testament to the popularity of the song, to the popularity of the Rocky movies or it could be an indication that y'all enjoy running the stairs/bleachers. It's also a very good song for beginners to practice their alternate picking on
  • Song 157: The Darkness - I Believe In A Thing Called Love. These people were everywhere for about twenty minutes back in 2003/2004. "Permission To Land" sold like a mofo. Then the band self-destructed in a classic "VH1: Behind The Music" fashion. Never liked them much. However; compared to the current version of the helium-voiced Bee Gees rip-off who goes by the name of Mika, The Dorkness is starting to look pretty damn good.
  • Song 158: Deep Purple - Black Knight. It appears that y'all struggle with finding any songs by Purple. Where's the love?
  • Song 159: Toto - Hold The Line. Uncharacteristically "straight" rock song from this bunch. Not much more to say, really.
  • Song 160: ABBA -Knowing Me Knowing You. Rather; the characteristic guitar break which appears several times throughout the song. Twin guitar dealie. I cheated, as I split and harmonized one voice using the Whammy pedal. Neat, huh?

Concomitantly, the Results for Round 4 stand as follows:

  1. Pigeon (7 points)
  2. Cathy (6 points)
  3. Anders/Marius/Sondre/Torbjørn (tied at 4 points)

The Total Score looks a li'l something like this:

  1. Cathy (29 points)
  2. Anders/Pigeon/Sondre (tied at 21 points)
  3. ...
  4. ...
  5. Torbjørn (14 points)
  6. Marius (13 points)

Congrats to Pigeon and Cathy and good luck with round 5!

...I was waiting for the french rebelion. ;-)

Anyway, congrats to pigeon for opening up a "pouvez des whoopass" in this round.

I had forgot about The Dorkness. Damn. Hadn't got a clue on that one.


As for the three last ones: They were all to familiar, but I just couldn't nail them (but one). That's really annoying.

Another weird fact: If there for some reason remember that the word "love" in a song, I always seem to think the line in the lyrics is "what is love". Don't know why, especially since my google-fu only returns Haddaway as the only artist with a line like that in the lyrics. And it's not like that is the sort of music I listen too. Dang.

that y'all struggle with finding any songs by Purple.

Yeah, I keep confusing Purple with Megadeth. There's just something so similar about those two bands...

Anyway, I just want to thank this Marius-guy for keeping me company down there.

Yup, that's all, folks.

Wilhelm said...

LOL...you tell'em, chief!
