It seems a lot different, this tournament, and the other thread. Does anyone else believe so? The sudden difference in taste, I do believe. Different players, different songs, different votes, etc . . . If I'm remembering accurately, some of you were hoping for a change like this. I haven't played a numerous amount of these yet, so maybe I am mistaken???

I will try to get these in a bit. Once I posted my votes late last night, this thing wouldn't start back up, so I am just now returning. I am showing this person here, a bunch of my favorite movies. I'll be up super late.

I'm not sure that I understand what you're saying. Are you comparing this song tournament to the general song tournament?

If so, I would expect them to be very different, not just because of the different players, but also because of the theme. This tournament is specifically sad songs, so the other one should have much more upbeat songs.

I've just had a look and four of the eleven players haven't played before, which has given us some refreshing new choices, and their tastes are obviously affecting the songs going through. On quick glance I think I've got three left and two of those aren't in English which makes me happy

Yep! That's what I mean. A perfect example. I have nominated non English songs a few times, and they were voted out immediately. I bet they'd still be in on this tournament.
