Oh, by the way, we're having a second choice gala on Friday 9 May at 8pm. Please PM me up to three songs that you wanted to enter but that didn't quite make the cut ranked in order of preference. I can't guarantee that all submissions will make the cut, but everyone who sends some songs will get at least one entry on the playlist. Maybe you decided something was just too well known. Maybe it wasn't on Spotify. Maybe it only reached number 41. Maybe you like it but suspected that no-one else would. This is your chance at last. Please note that the second choice gala is optional, so you don't have to take part if you don't want to. It'll be a lot of fun though.

Up to 20 points? :shock:
I'd forgotten how long it has been since you've played! All of the recent ASFMs have had more points given out because there was so much complaining about not being able to vote for favourite songs.

I've gone off my actual song choice and regret sending it but I have a few I can send to this. :)

After my initial rank, it's very much skewed in favour of Semi 1 (10 vs 4) which is odd as I felt like I enjoyed Semi 2 more.

Honestly seeing my song as part of the recap, it shines along with my bird. I am proud of it and all the haters can go kick rocks.

Recaps have been corrected to include our entry from the Pokémon: the first movie soundtrack and an incorrect application of Jackie Bird

I knew I was gonna like quite a few songs here, way more than in your regular ASFM.

@dmlaw the second choices thing is happening before or after the song reveal? (who sent what)

After. Voting closes on the Wednesday, the song reveal is on the Thursday and then the second choice gala is on the Friday.

News: Six votes are in. One point separates the top 2 songs. Neither of the top two songs have received a 20.

Voted!! I was thinking about giving it a few more days but i already knew 12 of the 14 songs i gave points to (mostly ten out of tens!) so really a few more days wasn't really going to change things.

Moopy did good this round! :disco:

Voted. Didn't give points to any song I knew (well) but that's fair IMO. Good luck everyone!
