Sad Songs Song Tournament

Tools    





Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

Both songs are great and even though I love Mad World, I feel I really love it a lot because it reminds me of Donnie Darko (2001). If I just compare the songs on their own, Hallelujah is the winner for me.

We seemed to have lost a bunch of people in this tournament, and The Finals have been open for almost two days, so it's pretty much time to end it.

I'll leave this open only until I'm ready to log off tonight, which should be in about 2 or 3 hours, and then I'll announce the winner.

These are the people who still haven't voted in The Finals.

Well done to Sarge on the win with Hallelujah and to Little Devil for nominating the runner-up in Mad World.

Many thanks to Gbg for running this one - a shame some dropped out but you gave them every chance and then some.

Thank you!

It was really Jeff that did all of the work, and obviously Leonard.

Really enjoyed it. Thanks Gbg for organising and putting all of the effort in.

F*** it!!!! I'm not here often enough to change it
Thanks for that note, GBG. How insane is my life, that I forgot all about that accident?!? I think you just helped me, though. I had a sprained ankle, that had my one foot almost twice it's normal size, from all the swelling. I never did anything to it. I was at a complete loss. Maybe it was left over damage from that fall. I kept on the thing, because I was so busy, but this flu bug has had me on my ass for a good spell now, so it seems to be pretty close to heeled. At least I hope so. Thanks again, my dear.

As for this tournament, thanks for still wanting me to vote, and I'm sorry I missed out. Although I may have had too hard of a time. I do love both of those songs . . . a lot. Congrats everyone, and great job, lady!

Hi sty,

I'm glad to see you're back, and you, (and your ankle), are feeling better.

I know that you sometimes disappear from the boards for a while, and you always come back eventually, but I was worried about you when you didn't post for a while. It seemed like you were gone longer than normal. Hopefully you're back for good this time.

Yep, these past few years have definitely been like that. Too insane to stay put. My life, not me . . . Well, it's a close call, sometimes.

Thanks for your concern. It's nice. I sort of had a very bad situation added on to all the injury and illness, but I've normally always kept that stuff to myself. It's just how I am, I suppose. Thanks again, though. I hope everything's going great with you and your family?

We're very busy, so that's good, but it's keeping me off the boards during the day. I wish I had more time here, but I'm trying my best to keep up to date here every night.

I haven't said anything here yet because it seems to be a common injury around here, but I twisted my ankle walking down the stairs about 10 days ago, (two Fridays ago), and then I was stupid enough to walk on it at a car show/swap meet all weekend, so it got worse. I've been resting it all last week since then, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better, so I may have to go to the doctor for that this week, but other than that, everyone here is healthy and happy.
