OK, well this is just a mini-project whilst we wait for me to finish my exams and start a proper new game! I nicked this idea from a forum about another artist, so sorry to them, but it's a good idea!
All you have to do is list your favourite 27 Kate Bush songs. The scoring is the same as the Eurovision song contest, for those who've seen it: your favourites get 12 points, then your 2nd favourites get 10 points, then your 3rd favourites get 8 points, etc.
You can award each set of points to 3 songs. So you can give 12 points each to 3 songs, and 10 points each to three other songs, and 8 points each to 3 songs, etc.
So for example, using random songs (these are not my favourites! ), you might go:
12 points: Fullhouse, Deeper Understanding, Rocket's Tail 10 points: Room For The Life, Under Ice, Running Up That Hill 8 points: You're The One, Rubberband Girl, Waking The Witch 6 points: Love And Anger, Lily, Hounds Of Love 5 points: Pull Out The Pin, The Fog, Babooshka 4 points: The Sensual World, Wuthering Heights, Experiment IV 3 points: You Want Alchemy, The Dreaming, Hammer Horror 2 points: Reaching Out, The Infant Kiss, Breathing 1 point: Oh To Be In Love, The Red Shoes, Walk Straight Down The Middle
You can include b-sides and live tracks, as well as collaborations.
I tried something like this, oh, maybe over a year ago. I wanted everyone to PM me with the albums ranked, and the songs ranked within them. I was to assign points based on how the songs ranked and submit a final list of all officially released tracks. I never did get enough response to come to real conclusion about our tastes.
Maybe you will be able to from this, more streamlined approach. I will submit mine as soon as I get a chance. Thanks Sto for reviving the game!
