If we were to say reload the rest of the Buzzjack Song Contests now, which songs do you think would win their respective contests?

Here's what won the first eight Re:Loaded's.

01 Delta Goodrem - Believe Again
02 The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony
03 The Veronicas - Hook Me Up
04 The Pipettes - Pull Shapes
05 M.I.A - Paper Planes
06 Imogen Heap - Hide and Seek
07 Lady GaGa - Just Dance
08 Kate Bush - This Woman's Work

-x-

My predictions/guesses (in the contest where I don't know much of the songs I've just gone for the winner or the obvious commercial hit):

09 Margaret Berger - Will You Remember Me Tomorrow? {I think this'd still win, even against Pink 'So What'}
10 Lady GaGa - Paparazzi
11 Ladytron - Destroy Everything You Touch
12 La Roux - Quicksand
13 Agnes - Release Me
14 The Veronicas - Untouched
15 Royksopp & Robyn - The Girl And The Robot
16 La Roux - Bulletproof
17 Chicane - Poppiholla {this is probably just the personal opinion talking here, I don't actually have a clue (the contest's actual winner doesn't sound like it'd win again)}
18 Ke$ha - Dolla (aka Tik Tok)
19 Mini Viva - Left My Heart In Tokyo
20 Alphabeat - The Spell
21 3OH!3 feat Katy Perry - Starstrukk
22 Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles

I really would like to think better of us than to go for the 'obvious commercial hit', that doesn't look like a winner improvement list in the slightest. Honestly you have to consider that plenty of people don't like pop hits, some of them in early BJSC are hardly the best... and loads of the underground hits are actually great songs, which is why the Reloaded thing started in the first place. I'm always anti-cheap stuff winning these because that was never the point of rerunning them and honestly seeing them do well each time, it is kind of killing the Reloadeds for me. sad.gif You can say they'd win if the contest was re-run under the same rules as normal contests right now and of course they would because they have an advantage in that everyone knows them already but that's... may I say... HARDLY THE POINT.

(if we were starting the reloaded project right now I'd honestly suggest excluding all songs everyone already knows (like top 10 hits) from the runs)

I'll just do up to XX right now because I've realised I've started writing a lot for these, you've triggered me, Dan:

IX - Alizee - Moi.. Lolita (between this and Margaret but I think this'd hit the crossover bases more and Imogen Heap and Kate Bush have proved that that can work)
X - The Knife - Heartbeats (Paparazzi could challenge but it's not the most loved Gaga song, Embrace could come close, I'm mostly disregarding Up because The Sats aren't doing so well on here lately but it could be in the mix, probably more likely than Paparazzi)
XI - Ladytron - Destroy Everything You You Touch
XII - La Roux - Quicksand (but Mowgli's Road will be around there - if I'm right that'd be the first repeat winner!!!!)
XIII - The Sound Of Arrows - MAGIC (yes, Release Me is a monster but its obviousness could work against it? also this looks a very competitive one with Lights and Little Boots et al, it can't be AS simple as Agnes storming it)
XIV - Nightwish - Amaranth (but like srsly can we leave this one, literally the only reason I want it rerun at some point is to get justice for Amaranth, because otherwise it was the PERFECT result with a (rather great) inspired song beating out a dirty horde of lazy songs and a rerun would just ruin that)
XV - Royksopp (but I'd be very interested to see how Jungle Drum does and I don't know many of the big hitters so they could spring a surprise)
XVI - Bulletproof (there is NO good option for this one that I can see so if it happens I'd just hope Blank does as well as possible, if this sounds like I'm a rampant Rontvia stan it's because I am, they were like the only nation that GOT it back then)
XVII - Beautiful Small Machines (yep, I think it would repeat! Mainly because there doesn't look to be any huge competition, and it still sounds good to this day even if it will rely on a tad of retro charm, it's like a proto-Aeroche winner. That Livvi Franc song could be a problem and 3rd and 4th are unknowns to me, this'd be a good one to rerun as there's very limited cheapness for an early contest)
XVIII - Loba (if anything cheap is going to win this it won't be Kesha, actually I'd put Cosmic Love and even Aly & AJ ahead of Tik Tok if ROTD is anything to go by, I can't see any lesser knowns that I know might have a chance but Electric Storm would be one to watch perhaps, isn't that one of Delta's best regarded album tracks, certainly one of my fave Delta songs)
XIX - Stay The Night (that's still loved a LOT and it's definitely Alcazar's most accessible song, and apparently this came 2nd when there was 'eurovision hate' from what I've heard? Mini Viva would put up a fight and maybe Katzenjammer too. Actually Ignorance and Uprising would be among the mix (even though I love them, it'd be because they're cheap) it was surely only BJSC's huge pop bias that saw those DNQ in the first place)
XX - Into The Clouds (I want to say Butterflies or Music Everywhere but they'd probably get comments of 'outdated pop', The Spell is hardly Alphabeat's strongest regarded either, meanwhile, Sound Of Arrows has aged well and like with Magic, it's the sort of pop that very few people around here dislike. There's a few in the top 10 I don't know, maybe that Zechonia song would get more of an audience today)

can someone say one of mine would win now? that'd be nice.

I agree. Maybe some challenge from tyDi, probably its biggest threat, and perhaps FAUL but honestly I think it's one of the more well regarded winners in that decade so I think it'd be fine. Certainly Animals I don't think is universally loved enough to win (and the same for FAUL although lesser) although it'd probably come top 5 now. Dark Star is a tricky one but I honestly think it might flop a bit more now.

Breaking YOUR heart? Poor brave Jay Dabhi. (He already won a rematch in TBO and all!)

I think Belanger would still win 57 as well, but Jaymes hopefully still top 3 along with Garrix?

That was always a very close contest so I would not be surprised at a different result on a rerun although probably too soon to say exactly what. But yes, BJSC butterflies are probably everywhere like that although that is one of the bigger ones, we could still have Aquafina participating then. Safe With You was always a bit of an iffy entry anyway, although less so than Sigala...

Oh you were pretty good for the times as far as I can see, and some people did do well at sourcing inspired stuff, I just notice Rontvia as most adept at pulling out hits from places I doubt would have been touched otherwise.
