thought i'd try and get some more convo / hype going ready for the results in a couple of days with a lil indie predictaaa. as with all predictas, don't necessarily expect points or results (unless it's like super pops) but i wanna know what you're all THINKIN. so here we go.

it's only five questions so not too laborious ladies

question one l what will the top ten look like?

01 l
02 l
03 l
04 l
05 l
06 l
07 l
08 l
09 l
10 l

question two l which song will finish in last place?

31 l

question three l who do you think sent the following songs?

00 l The Runaways - Cherry Bomb
00 l >HALOS< - Dust
00 l Ephera - Alaska
00 l r.e.l. - Plateau
00 l Future World Music - Aqua Vitae

question four l which song did the following members send?

00 l Johnkm
00 l popchartfreak
00 l Ethan
00 l AntoineTTe
00 l 152chris

question five l are you gonna turn up to the results or leave poor pop feeling like he wore track pants on a monday?

I've always found UP IMPOSSIBLE to predict for some reason, I think the subtlety of most of the stuff and the general lack of discussion/hype anywhere really makes it hard for me to gauge how songs are going to be received.

Taking the plunge, probably going to be hilariously far out ~ None of the songs really screamed winner. A lot of my top 10 prediction is basically just my favourites oop

01 Lydia Ainsworth - Malachite
02 T.O.L.D. - Lucifer's Eyes
03 Azedia - Thunder & Lightning
04 Lane 8 feat. Patrick Baker - The One
05 Ghosts - WLVS
06 Lone - Meeker Warm Energy
07 The Radio Dept. - Death To Fascism
08 HĆLOS - Dust
09 Ephera - Alaska
10 Hundred Waters - Murmurs

31 Eisblume - Eisblumen

Cherry Bomb = titty
Dust = Dandy*
Alaska = SevenSeize
Plateau = gooddelta
Aqua Vitae = Thomsen

Johnkm = Moonbootica
popchartfreak = Anna Of The North
Ethan = Pizeta
AntoineTTe = The Preatures
152chris = Lone

I'll be here 4 results hopefully (I usually am ~)

Did I get even a single part of that right? All will be revealed.

(btw what are you supposed to do if you're one of the people in the last 2 questions, which I may or may not be)

Obviously I can't guess - though that would be best chance of getting everything right using a pseudonym laugh.gif

Loving the legion panel chris - my faves were Saturn Girl Matter-Eater Lad and Element Lad in those days. wub.gif

Did you know: John Peel had a copy of a single by The Legion Of Super Heroes (band) in his Most Precious box of singles?

Dream Girl had a musical named after her (sort of)

Brainiac 5 has featured in songs.

Karate Kid had his name rented for the movie franchise.

Star Boy is rumoured to have a huge schlong in fandom, and Element Lad gay (he ended up with a literal transgender girlfriend). Shrinking Violet and Light Lass dumped their boyfriends eventually and hooked up together.

it is generally in the character of the competition to keep things more covert and less blase than bjsc. typical jake moaning but we never normally have a predicta thread. it definitely subconsciously influences people whether they'd care to admit or actually even realise

IM JUST A MISERABLE MEG I KNOW

Wow, this is really hard... Normally what I'd predict to be last turns out to be a top 5 contender and I'm the only one who doesn't 'get' it.
BUT the predicta thread is a good idea and thanks Bré for being brave enough to start!:D UP deserves the hype!

I totally agree. I dont enter BJSC so I can't compare but I like the level of discretion we have in UP. In fact, I'm the person who points out their favourites most. I should quit that.

I dont like hype. I know it's fun for some people but the flood of "slaying" and "faves" references does not need to pervade every part of the site.

Bre's top 5 would be a travesty in my opinion. Too much sub-BJSC mush there.

Thank f*** somebody had the balls/lack of brains to enter Goat.
No way it'll win but what a tune and the Where the Wild Things Are on acid video is great.

GOAT is terrific. I'm really looking forward to the results evening, oh so much I want to comment about so many songs...

doh!

I doubt my prediction will actually be anywhere near reality, the only song I'm quite sure will do well is 'Malachite'. It may just be the lack of discussion/'hype' but UP really is extremely difficult to call compared to BJSC.

Best UP in years - found 3 great songs and perhaps one of the future faves. Their album sounds interesting, been spotifying it.
