Forum - General: Forum Games - Ultimate Chart Hit Tournament

Hello and welcome! This is a new tournament I've developed to play out on the site. It will feature the top 1024 ARIA charting songs in a knockout battle until only one winner is left!

I have taken the top 1024 ARIA charting songs according to this site's 'best of all time' list (many thanks to 392414 for finding 1001-1024 for me!) as of the chart dated 10/2/19 on this site. These 1024 songs have been seeded in order according to their ranking (ties in points were decided alphabetically, with the higher seeding given to the artist who comes first alphabetically).

It's a simple song vs. song knockout tournament with the loser being eliminated and the winner progressing to the next round, until we finally have an overall winner.

Every couple of days I will post four matchups to be voted on, all you need to do is select your favourite song from each matchup. Voting will be open for approximately 48 hours. For the first round any matchups that end in a tie will be decided by seeding, with the higher ranked song moving on and the lower ranked song being eliminated. The tiebreaker method will be revisited after every song has had one matchup; I'll probably ask for opinions at that time as to whether another option is preferable.

Enjoy!
Here is the first set of matchups:

1. Ed Sheeran - Shape Of You vs. 1024. The Rockmelons feat. Cutty Ranks, Nardo Ranks & Deni Hines - That Word (L.O.V.E.)
513. Snoop Dogg vs. David Guetta - Sweat
vs. 512. The Outhere Brothers - Boom Boom Boom
257. Shawn Mendes - Stitches
vs. 768. Dr. Alban - Sing Hallelujah
769. Londonbeat - I've Been Thinking About You
vs. 256. Bruno Mars - Locked Out Of Heaven

Vote for your favourite song from each matchup. Votes will close on Wednesday night at 7pm AEDST.

The first three were very easy to decide but the last bracket was a difficult decision
Time for the results! But first, I should say that I won’t be counting guest votes in this game. Allowing them opens the game up to potential manipulation and I’d rather not have that possibility. Sorry for not mentioning this sooner, but it didn’t occur to me; I’m still not used to guest posting being a thing again. If any guests do want to play, feel free to signup and join in! On to the results:

We begin with the most unsurprising upset possible, the top seed has been defeated! The Rockmelons have comfortably defeated Ed Sheeran. Another one sided result sees Dr. Alban defeat Shawn Mendes. The two closer matches both go the way of the newer song rather than the older, with David Guetta/Snoop Dogg besting The Outhere Brothers and Bruno Mars making quite a comeback to oust Londonbeat. The four winners move on to the second round, so we’ll see them again late this year!

That Word (L.O.V.E.) defeats Shape Of You 15-4
Sweat defeats Boom Boom Boom 10-9
Sing Hallelujah defeats Stitches 13-6
Locked Out Of Heaven defeats I’ve Been Thinking About You 11-8
Here is the next set of matchups:

129. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Eric Nally, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee & Grandmaster Caz - Downtown vs. 896. Galantis - Peanut Butter Jelly
641. The Grid - Swamp Thing
vs. 384. Duke Dumont - Ocean Drive
385. Fine Young Cannibals - She Drives Me Crazy
vs. 640. George Michael - Fastlove
897. Gina G - Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
vs. 128. Will Smith - Switch

Vote for your favourite song from each matchup. Votes will close on Friday night at 7pm AEDST.
My votes:

Peanut Butter Jelly
Ocean Drive
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
No idea. Is it essential to vote for one? Peanut Butter Jelly then.
Swamp Thing
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
If you’d prefer not to vote in a particular matchup, you can absolutely just skip it and vote for the others.
Peanut Butter Jelly
Swamp Thing (both these songs would easily win like >95% of battles for me )
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
Galantis - Peanut Butter Jelly Time
Hayden James feat. Boy Matthews - Ocean Drives Me Crazy
Netflix Adaptation Of Jeffrey Dahmer - She Drive
Will Smith - Wii U
Downtown
Ocean Drive
Fastlove
Ooh Aah... Just a Little Bit
Downtown
Ocean Dr.
She Dr. Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bitty Bit
Peanut Butter Jelly
Ocean Drive
Fastlove
Ooh Aah... Just a Little Bit
Peanut Butter Jelly - Galantis
Ocean Drive - Duke Dumont feat. Boy Matthews
She Drives Me Crazy - Fine Young Cannibals
Switch - Will Smith

I do wonder why Boy Matthews was never credited on "Ocean Drive"
I don't know either of the first pair, and know I won't like either of them... so I'll vote for the one with the least votes so far:

Downtown
Swamp Thing
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just a Little Bit
Peanut Butter Jelly
Swamp Thing
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit

Downtown
Swamp Thing
Fastlove
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
Peanut Butter Jelly
Ocean Drive
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit

again the last bracket was the hardest choice for me to make
Downtown
Ocean Drive
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
Peanut Butter Jelly
Ocean Drive
She Drives Me Crazy
Ooh Ahh... Just A Little Bit

*Disappointed to see Bruno Mars eliminate Londonbeat. Bruno Mars will have multiple entries. Londonbeat just the one.
Further disappointed that Boom Boom Boom missed out & Stitches though I do like Sing Hallelujah.
True (and I voted Londonbeat), but Locked Out Of Heaven feels to me like easily his most popular song on here, so it's at least not a loss to something exchangeable with all his other entries
Peanut Butter Jelly
Ocean Drive
Fastlove
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
Peanut Butter Jelly
Ocean Drive
She Drives Me Crazy
Switch

Results time! It’s a fairly straightforward group here, with each winner scoring at least double its opponent. Galantis take down Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the battle of songs from this decade. It’s another from this decade going through as Duke Dumont knocks out The Grid. Fine Young Cannibals hit the same score as they defeat George Michael. Clearly the majority of us enjoy songs about driving. And Gina G goes even better than all the others as she takes a very comfortable victory over Will Smith.

Peanut Butter Jelly defeats Downtown 13-5
Ocean Drive defeats Swamp Thing 12-6
She Drives Me Crazy defeats Fastlove 12-6
Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit defeats Switch 14-4

From This Moment On

don't know either... going with Symphony because I like the title better.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door

is there a neither option? Going with No One.
Yes, if you’d prefer not to vote for either song in a matchup you can do that. I’ll count your Alicia vote unless you choose to change it.

Thanks, bluezombie. So we can vote for only the songs we know, if we want?

I'll cancel my vote for Alicia, then.

I know this is an opportunity to discover 'new' music for those who don't know the songs... just I don't really like those artists.
Like A Drum lol
Symphony
Macarena
She Will Be Loved
The last round is closed, so let’s find out who made it through. Shania Twain has an easy time of it, comfortably taking out Guy, so for now we’re singing bye bye L’il Sebastian. Clean Bandit are also quite convincing winners in their battle with Zedd. Los Del Rio come through in what is a surprising result to me, as they oust Guns N Roses. And lastly, it’s Maroon 5 coming out on top in a very close tussle with Alicia Keys.

From This Moment On defeats Like A Drum 14-3
Symphony defeats The Middle 12-5
Macarena defeats Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door 10-8
She Will Be Loved defeats No One 9-8

My votes:

Lay Down Your Guns

Jimmy Barnes - Lay Down Your Guns (because the song is far older than "Gun" by CHVRCHES so it's a sentiment I can get behind)
Kate Ceberano - Bedroom Eyes (because it's one word away from my queen)
Savage Garden - I Want You (because I like cherry cola)
U2 - All I Want Is You (because U2 loved me)

It’s the end of the round and I have results! It was another not particularly close set of battles, with every winner scoring at least double the votes of its opponent. Jimmy Barnes must have been able to make Major Lazer lay down any weapons as he knocks them into the cold water of oblivion. The most one sided battle so far sees Kate Ceberano win almost everyone over with her bedroom eyes; I think we know where Peter Blakeley will go to console himself. Savage Garden’s Uncle Sam imitation was more than convincing enough to get them the votes over Steps, who hoped their counting would net them the numbers; alas they only netted their first number. Lastly we have U2 who were able to get the total they needed by speaking directly to everyone in their plea for support; their success in this endeavour knocks out Celine Dion, but she credits you with her placement here anyway.

Lay Down Your Guns defeats Cold Water 12-6
Bedroom Eyes defeats Crying In The Chapel 16-2
I Want You defeats 5, 6, 7, 8 13-5
All I Want Is You defeats Because You Loved Me 12-6

Crazy Frog - Axel F (just for the memes)
Hey Ya! - OutKast (even though it very much annoys me )
Running Back - Jessica Mauboy feat. Flo Rida
(Galway Girl is as annoying as all hell, and I say that as an Ed Sheeran fan )

Sidenote: How did Jessica manage to get someone as famous (or infamous) as Flo Rida on to one of her songs?

Another round is over and the results are ready. First up saw a tight battle between Maroon 5 and B2K, but it’s the Mick Jagger moves that saw Maroon 5 get the win. Then we have two matches which are equally the most lopsided results so far. It doesn’t surprise me that Paula Abdul dominated so heavily over Crazy Frog, perhaps I’m more surprised that the Frog got a vote at all. Also scoring only one vote was Michael Jackson, with Outkast almost completely achieving a clean sweep. Lastly it’s Jessica Mauboy, with her debut single knocking out Ed Sheeran. Don’t fret though, there’s more Sheeran coming up, so there’s either another chance to vote for him or vote against him depending on your preference. Maybe you can even do both?

Moves Like Jagger defeats Bump, Bump, Bump 9-6
Opposites Attract defeats Axel F 14-1
Hey Ya defeats You Are Not Alone 14-1
Running Back defeats Galway Girl 12-3

To The Moon And Back

thewitness, I might increase the speed in the following rounds, but at this stage I’ll keep it at four matches at a time because I know some people are listening to the songs before voting and eight songs at a time is a good amount for that.
To The Moon And Back
Lego House
So Beautiful

To The Moon And Back

Lay It All On Me

all of these won narrowly over the other, I'd easily vote To the Moon over the other 6 songs in the match-ups
To The Moon And Back
Stranger
So Beautiful
Lay It All On Me
Sexual - NEIKED feat. Dyo (it kinda sucks though )
Lego House - Ed Sheeran (what a classic!)
So Beautiful - Pete Murray (tough choice, both are tunes . Ultimately Aussie music trumps all though )
Lay It All On Me - Rudimental feat. Ed Sheeran (love this song!)
To The Moon And Back (as the combo Dinosaurs-Dynoro stan account, it pains me to have to vote against Dyo)
Stranger
So Beautiful
Lay It All On Me
To The Moon And Back
Lego House
Young, Wild & Free
No Matter What
To The Moon And Back
Stranger

Lay It All On Me
Savage Garden - To The Maroon And Back

This round is done and once more it’s a fairly convincing set of victories, again all winners double their opponent. Savage Garden have taken the most decisive win of all in their defeat of Neiked. Things were a little closer for Ed Sheeran at first but a string of consecutive votes for him results in a comfortable defeat of Peking Duk. I think So Beautiful is so beautiful and I’m pleased to see that enough people agreed, at least in comparison to the one relevant song, as Pete Murray moves on after knocking out the Snoop/Wiz/Bruno combo. Lastly, the tables really have turned in Sheeran’s favour this set; after struggling with his first couple of entries in the game, he has two move through at once as his Rudimental collaboration removes yet another top 100 seed from the game; this time it’s Boyzone who are ousted.

To The Moon And Back defeats Sexual 16-3
Lego House defeats Stranger 13-6
So Beautiful defeats Young, Wild And Free 14-4
Lay It All On Me defeats No Matter What 12-6

Vote for your favourite song from each matchup, or skip any matchups where you can’t choose. As the Logo game is open for an extra day this round, I’ll keep this open an extra day as well so that they remain on opposite days. So votes will close on Tuesday night at 7pm AEDST.

both the first two were very close, the other two were very easy choices
It’s another simple set of choices here it appears. Timbaland seems to have nothing to be sorry about, but it would be too late for that anyway as Roxette have been beaten. Nelly Furtado has dethroned Tina Turner to take her mantle as the best, and clearly she deserves it right now, with two songs moving through successfully after also defeating Flo Rida. Lastly, Jennifer Paige has crushed S Club 7.

Apologize defeats Dangerous 10-4
I’m Like A Bird defeats The Best 9-5

Well, that’ll do it for another round, and it’s a mixed bag of decisiveness and indecisiveness. History is made as we have the first tie, much later than I was expecting to get one. There’s also the second tie, but we’ve already had one now, so ho hum. First off, we have Adele with a comprehensive victory over The Madden Brothers, we’ll see Joel and Benji again, but in this incarnation their fate was correctly self predicted. They are done. The next battle is our first tie. Right Said Fred and Sam Smith could not be separated, but as the slightly higher seed, it’s Sam Smith who moves through. Then it’s The Cranberries with a very decisive thrashing of one of my favourite Jason Derulo songs. The final battle was another tie; as a group we couldn’t decide between James Blunt and Avicii, so it comes to the seedings, moving James Blunt on.

Someone Like You defeats We Are Done 14-2
Too Good At Goodbyes defeats I’m Too Sexy 8-8 (TB)
Zombie defeats Ridin’ Solo 15-1
You’re Beautiful defeats Addicted To You 8-8 (TB)

* I dislike the seeding decisions on draws. Newer material will be favoured over older.
End of year chart positions is more realistic.
I agree NateBoi, it should probably be changed
Yeah, I’m looking at changing the tiebreaker after every song has had its first match up, I’ll take a vote on the best option closer to that time. Fortunately there haven’t been many ties yet, I was expecting more.
Well, the older song has won in about 23/34 non-tied matchups so far, so maybe the newer songs need the leg up! I do agree that this isn't ideal though, but it's hard to find a better way. EOY positions would bring their own issues with how much they depend on timing (at least in recent years).

For what it's worth, I counted the BOAT top 1000 (not 1024, so it's slightly different) a few weeks ago and this was the amount of songs per year (by top 50 entry date):

            199031          200030          201041
            199122          200129          201135
            199225          200228          201232
            199330          200326          201332
            199427          200418          201428
            199524          200526          201533
            199632          200637          201646
            199745          200739          201743
198819          199834          200846          201836
198934          199935          200937            

So it's not actually that slanted towards more recent years (except near the top, as 81 of the top 100 are from 2006-present).

Results time! After a few ties and more close battles in recent times, we’re back to convincing victories with a full set of winners more than doubling the votes of their opponent. It’s the newer song winning each battle this time around, with Flume knocking out Backstreet Boys kicking it off. The closest match of the round was the one I thought would be the most one sided, with Evanescence defeating East 17. Next is the matchup I thought would be closest, instead it was the most decisive victory of the set, No Doubt have thumped Salt N Pepa. Lastly the teaming of Lady Gaga and Beyonce have proven victorious over Bette Midler. This may make Bette angrier than roadside littering does.

Never Be Like You defeats All I Have To Give 13-3
My Immortal defeats House Of Love 11-5
Just A Girl defeats Let's Talk About Sex 15-1
Telephone defeats From A Distance 14-2

Results time. The first battle was tight at first, but DNCE grabbed the lead, and the last votes were just the icing on the cake as they’ve been raised to the next round ahead of Westlife. The second battle was even closer, but the result is nice for Drake as he has creamed Prince. Third we see Liberty X take a little 80% of the votes in their victory over The Beach Boys. The final battle was a very decisive match; all that Dynoro wants is a vote, and all Dynoro gets is a vote as Ace Of Base take the rest and move on.

Cake By The Ocean defeats You Raise Me Up 9-5
Nice For What defeats Cream 9-6
Just A Little defeats Kokomo 12-3
All That She Wants defeats In My Mind 14-1

Results are here! The first match up was an easy choice for the group as a whole, with Ja Rule forced to put his hands up in surrender, getting only one vote against Fedde Le Grand who reigns tonight. Following that we saw Birds Of Tokyo, who made plans to win, and these plans came to fruition as they’ve defeated Luther Vandross and Janet Jackson; the best things in this game are votes, so maybe if they’d been willing to pay... The third battle was much closer, with Madonna taking on Hocus Pocus, but in the end striking a pose and moving through, Here’s.....Vogue. The final match was closer again, with Melanie C and Lighthouse Family even on votes, however Melanie will be turning to you for comfort, as Lighthouse Family have the high seed benefit and they go through.

Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit defeats Reign 13-1

Promises - Calvin Harris & Sam Smith (can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that Calvin Harris is still making hits...)
Rude! - Magic (still hear it on the radio WAY too much though )
I Fall Apart - Post Malone (just listened to Stupid Girls for the first time in a while. It's alright, but the vocal moments aren't as good as I remember. Don't get me wrong - I like it, but I Fall Apart only ~just~ wins.)

Round done, results. Nelly and friends can shake it for the birds, bees, catfish, crickets, critters and squirrels, but they won’t be shaking it in the second round because when I think of the winner of the first match, that’s when I think of 1927. The second match was a battle between promises and candy. I’d be happier with the candy, but two thirds of the voters disagreed, siding with Calvin Harris and Sam Smith to defeat Mandy Moore. Is it ruder to demand a kiss, or refuse your daughter’s boyfriend his request to propose to her/ask a question and ignore the answer/demand marriage? I can’t answer that, but I can say that Sixpence None The Richer have rudely given Magic the kiss off in the third battle. The final match tonight means we are an eighth of the way through the first round, and we’ve lost the two highest seeds in that part of the draw; Pink has defeated the 16th seeded Post Malone.

That’s When I Think Of You defeats Shake Ya Tailfeather 9-6
Promises defeats Candy 9-6
Kiss Me defeats Rude 13-2

all very close for me too, I think I like everything here that isn't Wasabi :p
Give Me Everything
Just A Dream
Back For Good
Kiss Kiss
Give Me Everything - Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer
(Probably the most/the only tolerable song of Pitbull's for a lot of people )
Just A Dream - Nelly
(Hmm... this hasn't aged well now, has it?)
Ho Hey - The Lumineers
(Gotta be honest, hated this song when it was first out because I found it glaringly boring and simple, but I love it now)
Kiss Kiss - Holly Valance
(Don't know either of the options, but don't particularly want to abstain)

Here are results. First up we have the conflicting strategies Pitbull telling you he wants your vote against Transvision Vamp and their apathy. We didn’t give Pitbull everything, but we did appreciate his open desire to win and rewarded him as such. The second battle saw Nelly dreaming of victory taking on Lee Harding who once cried on TV about not getting a Mark Holden “Touchdown”. Lee now has something to cry about again, as he’s been easily defeated by Nelly. My two favourites of this set of battles were matched against each other, and it was Take That who reigned supreme over The Lumineers. The last match wa probably the closest one for me to decide so far, and several others felt a similar way about it. We even felt that way as a group, with Holly Valance and Young Divas ending in a tie. Young Divas go through on seeding.

Results:

Give Me Everything defeats Baby I Don’t Care 10-3
Just A Dream defeats Wasabi 12-2
Back For Good defeats Ho Hey 10-4
This Time I Know It’s For Real defeats Kiss Kiss 7-7 (TB)

HUMBLE. - Kendrick Lamar (one of the most iconic rap songs ever!)
The round is over and the results are all in favour of the higher seed. The first match sees a song finally take a clean sweep of every vote. There have been a couple of songs in the past which I thought might be able to do this based on their favourable matchup, but they fell short. This time, however, Nelly Furtado was able to take advantage and took every single vote over Max-A-Million. Yazz And The Plastic Population tan out comfortable winners over the teaming of Barbra Streisand and Bryan Adams. Bastille were also quite easily ahead of The Black Eyed Peas, who were shut up but not shut out. All of the drama in this round was in the last matchup, which I felt could go either way at the start of the round, and it remained a toss-up right until the last vote came in this afternoon. That last vote was enough to see Kendrick Lamar narrowly move through ahead of Martika.

Say It Right defeats Sexual Healing 15-0
The Only Way Is Up defeats I Finally Found Someone 11-4
Pompeii defeats Shut Up 10-5
Humble defeats Love...Thy Will Be Done 8-7

Love Song - Sara Bareilles (this was CLOSE, big fan of Sara though. New album out this Friday FYI)
Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne (always liked this, even in spite of all the hate it got and still gets. Very aware that Bulletproof will win though)

Just a random thought, I wonder how long it'll be before we encounter U2 or OneRepublic in these match-ups, cause I'd be really keen on seeing them here
Martika - I Feel The Earth Move
Concrete Blonde - Joey
Sara Bareilles - Love Song
La Roux - Bulletproof
We had All I Want Is You before but I'm not actually sure we'll see U2 again! Most of their songs didn't spend long enough in the chart. I didn't check all of them but the closest I see is Desire being #1255, and surprisingly I don't think any of their pre-1988 hits would beat that either. (Though of course they've got plenty of entries lined up in the ARIA Logo game, if you're interested enough in discovering the music that surrounds them too )
Tubthumping
Joey
Hook Me Up (this was close though)

Thanks for that 392! I had thought maybe Beautiful Day might make it in here, but there you go...

It’s time for results. The first match found Martika standing on shaky ground, and indeed Chumbawamba have thumped their way through to the next round. Next up was Concrete Blonde’s ode to their favourite sitcom character doing battle with a bizarre OMC story, and Concrete Blonde came out on top. After that was a battle of two halves, with Sara Bareilles racing out to a strong early lead before The Veronicas came charging back. Ultimately love won out over a hookup; Sara continues on. Lastly we saw Avril Lavigne and La Roux trading votes early, until La Roux romped home with the last eight votes.

Tubthumping defeats I Feel The Earth Move 11-6
Joey defeats How Bizarre 10-7
Love Song defeats Hook Me Up 10-7
Bulletproof defeats Girlfriend 12-5

Well, this round is over now. Officially anyway, really it was over after the first few votes, we were very decisive this time. We’ve burned Usher, not been impressed by Travie McCoy, didn’t want to speak about 50 Cent and didn’t treat Chris Franklin good at all. The closest match of the set was the ten vote victory to Sonia Dada, with Jessica Mauboy, Shania Twain and No Doubt all only conceding one vote to win by twelve.

Burn defeats OMG 13-1
That Don’t Impress Me Much defeats Billionaire 13-1
Don’t Speak defeats In Da Club 13-1
You Don’t Treat Me No Good defeats Bloke 12-2

Bloke - Chris Franklin (better than Meredith Brooks' original I reckon)

I realise it's incredibly unlikely that Bluezombie will count my votes considering the poll is over, however my votes don't change anything in terms of the numbers, so I'd appreciate it if they were included. 110% understand if you don't change it though BZ
Was it when the australian-charts.com home page wasn't working? I didn't realise this either at first, but it turned out that threads and even the 'latest 50 threads' page were fine; it was just the home page that was down.

Threads usually stay working via hitparade too; you can view them there by changing 'australian-charts.com' to 'hitparade.ch' in the URL: https://hitparade.ch/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=58544

Or even bookmarking the forum sections there - for example, forum games: https://hitparade.ch/forum.asp?todo=subforum&subforum=62 or weekly ARIA chartifacts: https://hitparade.ch/forum.asp?todo=subforum&subforum=34

Just to help for if (realistically, when) something goes wrong with the site again
