Re: Iceland

After the old jury was arrested and exiled to the north pole, where the former head of jury is kept in an icy stronghold, Iceland has a new patron. We found ourselves with unfinished NF, which however needed some tweaks in the format, to make it agree with the WV rules. So here it goes...


WOOGFEST 2.1

1. RetRoBot - Electric Wizard
2. Foreign Monkeys - Zoology
3. Sigur Rós - Sæglópur
4. Agent Fresco - Tempo
5. Jónsi - Animal Arithmetic
6. Bróðir Svartúlfs - Velkomin
7. Björk - Virus


Instructions:
1. Rate each song as either WOOG, BWOOG or BOOG, where
WOOG - you really like the song and will probably vote for it in WV
BWOOG - you don't dislike the song, but don't find it special either
BOOG - you don't like the song​
2. Rank all songs you rated as WOOG from best to worst, if you liked more than one.
3. The woogest song wins!


Deadline: 28.09.12 24:00 CET


You're all welcome to vote in the revamped version of Woogfest 2! :D

For curious minds, technical details about scoring system: from each voter, the highest ranked song receives N points, where N equals number of woogs he gave, and each consecutive song receives one point less. Ties in the final score are solved in favor of the song which was found woog by more voters, and if there still is a tie, the one which received more bwoogs wins. In case of an unsolvable tie, random.org decides.

Voted so far: :ie::za:gr:pt::it::cy:

What if more than one songs have the same amount of woog? Are you gonna count the bwoog then?

Edit: I've just found out myself! :lol:

After what happened in the previous episode of this Icelandic drama series, maybe people are shunning this NF?

I blame it on the unusual voting system, which may be confusing to some.

After 5 voters, there's a two-way tie for 1st place (solvable within regular methods, though) and it's pretty close overall.

I dunno why people don´t like this song. It is certainly different and unlike other Björk songs, it has a refrain!!!

Not really! Just from the qualifiers, I really dislike Iceland and Ukraine, and this doesn't have to do with them qualifying, or my country not qualifying! I disliked them anyway! :lol:

But I liked Iceland in WV1! ;)
