So after 3 weeks of tense eliminations, we've finally crowned BJ's favourite Chromatica album track. And what a winner. wub.gif But before that, let's crown our runner-up!



"This song is the revelation I had during the album making process that reminded me it is actually the root of all my revelations. Sine is a function that expresses sound. I open a portal to the other realm whenever I write a song, a portal that is a conduit for sound and language. This song is about not only my music making process, but also about how I survive. I survive through music; I always have, and no matter how much I change or things change around me, that is always still true. Sound is my god."

Your runner-up is Gaga's collab with her BFF and all-round icon Elton John. 'Sine From Above' is the result of a decade of mutual admiration. It’s delightful to hear the result of that decade turn into a celebratory slice of electro-pop heaven. It's classic euphoric Gaga and in my opinion it ranks as one of her all-time best.



And BJ's fave Chromatica track is...



"Sometimes I've thought I've cried so many tears that that's all I was anymore - a fountain for misery to cycle through. I'd rather that not be true, but at least I'm alive. I'm grateful for that. Tears can be teachers if we let them."

There was a couple of times throughout this survivor that I didn't think this would even reach top 2, so the fact it has gone on to win is surprising, but who can complain? The song produced by Bloodpop, Tchami and Burns takes on its nineties house references perhaps more subtly than 'Alice', but mixes it with a typical dance pop beat drop. The last chorus coincides with this beat drop and it's the euphoric moment a song about dancing through the rain (and pain) deserves. Gaga's deep vocals contrast beautifully with Ariana's high pitched ad libs, adding the magic that justifies 'Rain On Me' being a worthy winner. The very example of an A list collaboration delivering in every single way and one of the most memorable moments in both Gaga's and Ari's careers. Well done, ladies. You smashed it. heart.gif

So that's it! Thanks to every single person who voted, whether that was just popping in to vote or whether you commented too. Its been a blast wub.gif

Check out the final results below.

=========================

01. Rain On Me (with Ariana Grande) [26 votes to win/70.27%]

What a top 2! My two favourites on the album. A very worthy winner too - continuing to cement itself as one of her very best singles wub.gif And Sine... well, that's a euphoric masterpiece and then some.

Thanks for running this Jase. It's been the most timely and organised survivor I have ever taken part in on Buzzjack laugh.gif

These results would've been good if Alice & Free Woman + 911 & 1000 Doves were switched accordingly

Alice and Babylon were far too high. And Enigma went way too soon!

A great winner though and a very deserving runner up heart.gif

Justice for Plastic Doll, Sour Candy and 1000 Doves, the latter two of which are among my Top 5 from the album.

I wouldn't say 'Rain On Me' is my favourite song on the album, but it's still a good winner.
