Wow, that's a pretty big lead, especially with 2nd to 6th being this close together.

Haha, cool :D I'm in for running the next round; I'll post an official start a little later in the day so we're keeping the times relatively consistent-ish.

Sorry, I totally spaced on this yesterday.

ROUND 3 VOTING BEGINS NOW!

The entries (order randomized):

As per last time, having six entries, please submit your votes for the top 5. 1st place nets 5 points, 2nd place gets 4, etc. Owing to my lack of attention, we'll extend the voting deadline to 7:00 P.M. CST on Friday, May 17.

Looks like it - I just copied what was submitted without double-checking. Post has been corrected, adjust your opinions accordingly.

Yeah, we moved the deadline because I was late on posting the submissions. Deadline is 7:00 P.M. CST tomorrow, so there's thirty-some hours left. On which note - anybody who wants to vote, don't hesitate!

Okay, slightly less late on this end of things :/ ROUND 3 RESULTS:

We didn't get quite as many entries this time, but nobody had to be disqualified, so there's that. Here's how the scoreboard tallies up:

Spoiler:
Joint 1st place: Chris Joss - "Tune Down" from somitomi and Focus - "Hocus Pocus" from commodorejohn (20 points)
2nd place: Styx - "Mr. Roboto" from flicky1991 (17 points)
3rd place: Parcels - "Lightenup (Breakbot remix)" from Flumble (13 points)
Joint 4th place: Bo Burnham - "Country Song" from patzer and Miracle of Sound - "Joker's Song" from SuperJedi224 (10 points)

Since we tied for first and I've already gone, I'd be happy to hand off the next round to somitomi - otherwise, flicky would be next in line.

So I guess that's the end of signups.

ROUND 4 VOTING STARTS NOW
Entries in no particular order:
Voting goes exactly like last time, submit your ranking of the top five songs, first gets 5 points, second gets 4 points and so on. In order to account for my tardiness, voting phase lasts until 20:00 UTC on June 1.

I find it amusing how often my votes seem to be in the exact opposite order to the final results...

Like, I put War on Drugs and Bit Pistol as my 1st and 2nd place choices, and the Led Zeppelin song (which won) as my last choice.

I swear it's been like this for most rounds so far.

Then please put my submission in last place next time. :mrgreen:

The results look nothing like my ranking though, apart from 1, 3 and 4 being in the correct order (not the right spots).
