👊 BUZZJACK 15TH ANNIVERSARY KO 🥊


We may have just collectively got Mollie King BACK in the iTunes Top 40 but the fun doesn't stop there. We'll be celebrating the last 15 years of Buzzjack with a favourite pastime of the forum which is of course voting in polls. Taking inspiration from the successful format the Artist Forums have been using we'll be putting the biggest songs of the past 15 years head to head. Here's how it will work.

In theory, the year-end top 64 for each year will partake. However to avoid repeats the song will only be put in the first year it made the top 64, and the few positions below 64 are added to make up the difference. Any songs that made the top 64 of 2005 will likewise not be put in the 2006 round and not be a part of the game. The titles will be seeded by pitting the year-end #1 with the #64, and so on as would often happen in actual sport. Of course, year-end positions often don't correlate to BuzzJack tastes so we could very well see some tough match-ups even in the opening stage of the competition. In each round half of the competing songs will be kicked out until there is one standing. The top 4 of each year will go to the Grand Finale to determine the ultimate champion of the BuzzJack Boxing Ring.

To vote simply highlight your favourite of each pairing.

A new round will open every few days so make sure to get your votes in quickly.

2008: Round 3 Results
21 v 20 | Britney Spears - Womanizer vs. Girls Aloud - The Promise
10 v 29 | Wiley - Wearing My Rolex vs. Kings Of Leon - Use Somebody [2 non-voters]
23 v 18 | September - Cry For You vs. Britney Spears - Piece Of Me
26 v 15 | Killers - Human vs. Leona Lewis - Run
22 v 19 | Ting Tings - Shut Up And Let Me Go vs. Dizzee Rascal featuring Calvin Harris & Chrome - Dance Wiv Me
24 v 17 | Estelle featuring Kanye West - American Boy vs. Ting Tings - That's Not My Name
21 v 20 | Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire vs. Sam Sparro - Black And Gold
22 v 18 | Coldplay - Viva La Vida vs. Rihanna - Don’t Stop The Music [1 non-voter]

Two incredibly close calls here but in the end Sex On Fire wins by a single vote yet again and Womanizer just about beats Girls Aloud kicking them out of the game for good. Britney's other song here is out with September progressing. Ting Tings likewise only get 1 of their 2 through but it's not the one you'd expect, as That's Not My Name is eliminated due to a stronger competition. Kings of Leon have both of theirs through as Use Somebody gives Wiley the biggest thrashing of the round, however only one of theirs can progress to the final 4. Of the bloodbath pairing Coldplay end up beating Rihanna putting her out of the running for this year.

2008: Round 4
Britney Spears - Womanizer vs. Coldplay - Viva La Vida
Kings Of Leon - Use Somebody vs. Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire
September - Cry For You vs. Estelle featuring Kanye West - American Boy
Killers - Human vs. Ting Tings - Shut Up And Let Me Go

argh I missed the last round, first one I've missed cry.gif though I would've voted for both Womanizer & Sex On Fire in those close rounds so that's not too bad at least kink.gif (would've voted for Run/That's Not My Name/Don't Stop The Music (tho the latter is overrated) & wish Piece Of Me lasted a lil longer but I love cry for you as much)

Britney Spears - Womanizer vs. Coldplay - Viva La Vida
Kings Of Leon - Use Somebody vs. Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire
September - Cry For You vs. Estelle featuring Kanye West - American Boy
Killers - Human vs. Ting Tings - Shut Up And Let Me Go

yeah those were all easy af. As one of the rare ones that really loves 2008 chart music, the top 8/16 have been pretty underwhelming cry.gif

Hardest was KOL! I like them both about the same. But the other 3 were relatively easy. Coldplay & Estelle are 2 of the most overrated songs of 2008. I like Ting Tings SU&LMG but it pales in comparison to 'Human'!
