I could restart this round with "Groove is in the Heart" as a substitute.
For fairness I think you should, or start from scratch. Otherwise you'll never know how the strategic voting went for and against the nominations in the earlier rounds. This round is bigger than Belarus!

If the Pretenders hadn't performed so strongly, I would have. But it almost won the competition in the second round (only Blondie did that). That's suggestive that it was going to win regardless.

Hmmm, if The Interupters hadn't run I'm guessing 'Y Control' would have done a whole lot better early on and later strategy voting could have gone in several directions - a YYY v. Deee-lite final in a parallel universe perhaps. Don't get me wrong, more than happy that The Pretenders' BIP did well. I will never mention Lukashenko in the context of this round ever again :shifty: Plus I know what a pain in the derriere this whole shebang must be for ya Doc.

It's quite possible that a different constellation would have led to a different final result, but I'm also mindful of the craziness that ensued from the "Paranoia" debacle. Giving songs that didn't succeed previously another shot would produce complaints of unfair second chances.

The fault in all this is ultimately mine in that I didn't specify in the rules about what to do when, after voting begins, we discover an ineligible song. It honestly didn't come to mind. One way of dealing with it going forward is to ask people to also post a discogs link that demonstrates the nomination's validity. That's just a suggestion, tho, as that starts seeming like work in the pejorative sense, whereas this is just a game.

Don't be a revbob and forget to vote. Nobody wants that chaos again. Because of revbob.
It was my inaction that led to Heston being exposed as the fraudster he is.
Indirectly. It was Olaf's suspicions that Heston was grifting that exposed him for the small-pox blanket trader he is in his heart.
It was mere curiosity rather than suspicion. I guess Germans just shouldn't take days off from work.

I note that you don't rebut my comment that you thought Heston might be grifting. :shifty:

Edit. Thought it was Rev who nominated the Interrupters.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Hello,

I think I nominated the Interrupters so it's my bad. I just went to allmusic.com and used the #9 song on their second album (figuring 6 sides for side one). I don't go to discogs to check - just allmusic.com I'm sorry for my error but that's how I figured the song was appropriate.

Uh... not this time. I nominated a rockabilly chick, Tammi Savoy.

And I'll put this one out there too. Tammi Savoy with a cover of Billie Holiday's "Them There Eyes"


I supported the Interrupters nomination though as did others. I think it was an honest mistake.
