This usually ends up occupying space in one of the other threads plus we're getting to the time of year where everyone's getting all end of year and reviewy, so I thought we might as well have a separate topic. In chronological order...

Indila - Derniere Danse
S O H N - Artifice
RuPaul - Sissy That Walk
RAM & Susana - RAMelia (Tribute To Amelia)
Hervé x Zebra Katz - Tear The House Up
A.G. Cook - Beautiful
Jay Dabhi and Moises Modesto - Cry For Freedom
Michael Woods feat, Lauren Dyson - In Your Arms
Blonde - I Loved You
Josef Salvat - Open Season

Commence the ranking.

1 Cry For Freedom
^ yes I know but it's one of my favourite songs of ever so let me

2 Artifice
3 Tear The House Up
4 Beautiful
5 Dernière Danse
6 RAMelia (Tribute To Amelia)
^ all excellent

7 Open Season
8 I Loved You
^ both good

9 Sissy That Walk
^ enjoyable enough but let's face it if it didn't have the gimmick of being RuPaul this would not be a winning song

10 In Your Arms
^ generic mess

All in all a pretty good year but the winner quality took a steep downturn after my win. I voted for 5 of the first 6 winners as well as the song that came 2nd behind myself, but didn't vote for any of the 3 since.

Myself:

01 Derniere Danse
02 Sissy That Walk
03 RAMelia
04 Open Season
05 I Loved You
06 In Your Arms
07 Beautiful
08 Cry For Freedom
09 Artifice
10 Tear The House Up

None that I actively dislike which is pretty good. The top 5 are all classic winners and 6 to 8 are alright but not essential, 'Artifice' I still find really bleh and nothingy and, well, I don't *hate* 'Tear The House Up' (sorry Chris x)

Wonderful/amongst my favourite discoveries of the year

01. Jay Dabhi and Moises Modesto - Cry For Freedom
02. S O H N - Artifice

Good

03. Hervé x Zebra Katz - Tear The House Up
04. Blonde - I Loved You
05. Josef Salvat - Open Season

Decent, but a bit overrated/not something I'd really go back to

06. Indila - Derniere Danse
07. RAM & Susana - RAMelia (Tribute To Amelia)

No thanks

08. RuPaul - Sissy That Walk
09. Michael Woods feat, Lauren Dyson - In Your Arms

Haven't heard (yay for an artist that technically was featured on a Terra Avium song first winning though magic.gif (straws meet clutching))

-- A.G. Cook - Beautiful

-x-

I only voted for the top 2, though one was my 12 pointer which was good. Generally though, the winners never quite make it to the tip top of my affections whilst I oddly always throw my support to the songs that end challenging them the most (three times my 12 pointer came 2nd this year :'()

01 I Loved You (definitely my favourite this year, i can see everyone loving this now it's having a commercial push too)
02 Open Season (didnt even give this any points in the semi but i love it now, just a fantastic little tune)
03 Beautiful
04 Artifice (wasn't in this final but i remember loving the song for a little while)
05 Cry For Freedom (did a big u-turn on this since the final really quite beautiful)
06 In Your Arms (went off this quickly, i do like it but shocked at it winning)
07 Derniere Danse
08 Sissy That Walk
09 RAMelia (one heard this once and it left no impression on me whatsoever sad.gif )
10 Tear The House Up (wasn't really my cup of tea)

wasnt in the final for ramelia, sissy, derniere or artifice but heard them all before.

less crazy when you take into account winners with only female vocals (Derniere Danse, In Your Arms, RAMelia, I Loved You, Beautiful(?) (the vocal is so high pitched it could be either gender but it sounds female))

Only the last two I don't really get / like. In response to Bal's ??? about Josef... while I like it, it's easily my least favourite of his songs and I'm rather baffled it won so easily. I'd've sent 'Shoot and Run' and come 25th I'm sure...

10. RuPaul - Sissy That Walk

The first 3 are magical. They all beat out very good runners-up which all would have improved the winners list no end in a different contest, but the right choice was made for all three of these I think (to keep things in balance, in the contests where I wasn't a fan of the winner, I wasn't amazingly enamoured with any of the nearest challengers either). The next 5 are all very good songs, worthy of being winners and good additions to the canon, I've tired of Tear The House Up just a bit though.

In Your Arms is passable but not a particularly standout song in this list, and as for Sissy That Walk, as a song it is dreadful. The first verse I can enjoy, everything after that is pretty bad.

Anyone who doesn't 'get' RAMelia should watch this:



The song still sends shivers down my spine, in any incarnation.

I've noticed how much dislike Michael Woods got. I'm actually wondering how it won with so many members actively disliking it.
