As you might expect now that we’re at the pointy end of the competition, there were several close battles in this set. Three of the four matches were sitting on tied results this morning, but the final vote in the afternoon decided those. Savage Garden were the ones who always looked safe, and have knocked out Fine Young Cannibals. The Cranberries had the tiebreak edge over Madonna, and the final vote confirmed their victory. Sophie Ellis-Bextor on the other hand, would have lost the tiebreak against Nelly Furtado until that final vote came through and saved her. And an impressive showing from bottom ten seed Missy Higgins comes to an end. She wasn’t the lowest seed remaining, but her effort in outlasting all of the top ten seeds is a strong feat, and it was a close battle against No Doubt for a place in the top sixteen. Both songs even had the same amount of votes from previous matches, so their tie would have gone to No Doubt on seeding, but the last vote decided it and No Doubt go through anyway.

Results:

To The Moon And Back defeats She Drives Me Crazy 11-6
Zombie defeats Vogue 9-8
Murder On The Dancefloor defeats Say It Right 9-8
Don’t Speak defeats The Special Two 9-8

The close battles keep on coming as we continue through the sixth round. First was an ep, errrr, a monumental struggle between Faith No More, and Carly Rae Jepsen, the second highest remaining seed. By a single vote, the epi, errr, the legendary run of Epic continues and we say goodbye to Call Me Maybe and all associates forbidden errors. Only one top 100 seed remains now. Bomfunk MC’s took an early lead in their match with Spiller, and while the Groovejet closed in a little towards the end, it’s Freestyler swimming through to round seven. Likewise, The Veronicas took an early lead over Alanis Morissette, and while you really should know that she closed the gap somewhat, the lead of Untouched could not be touched. Finally was the back and forth battle between Nirvana and Madonna. Nirvana stormed ahead with the first five votes, before Madonna leveled things with the next five. It was back and forth after that, but in the end it smells like Nirvana have moved on and Madonna is 0/2 in her round 6 matches; she still has one more chance though.

Results:

Epic defeats Call Me Maybe 7-6
Freestyler defeats Groovejet 8-5
Untouched defeats You Oughta Know 8-5
Smells Like Teen Spirit defeats Hung Up 7-6

Another group of incredibly close battles continue round 6 here. In the first match, Of Monsters And Men surged ahead early before Jam & Spoon pegged them back. It was a back and forth affair from there before a vote in the last fifteen minutes broke the tie and changed the result; everything is right on this night for the condiment and the cutlery. The dish however is feeling betrayed. The second matchup saw Madonna’s final entry taking on the only remaining top 100 seed in The Prodigy. Like A Prayer took the early lead, and while Breathe made a late charge, it’s curtains for everything in the top 100 now, but at least Madonna can say she got one of her three round six entrants through to round seven. The third match brings a big shock result for me; I thought Umbrella was a strong contender to go a long way towards the end, but Silverchair have overthrown Rihanna with two votes in the final hour giving them a narrow victory. The final match between East 17 and Roxette looked very one-sided at first, with East 17 taking the first seven votes, before Roxette got the next five. East 17 were able to steady the ship and get a couple more votes to solidify the win; turns out they are the ones with the look.

Results:

Right In The Night defeats Little Talks 8-7
Like A Prayer defeats Breathe 8-7
Straight Lines defeats Umbrella 8-7

The votes came in thick and fast for this lot, with almost everyone voting within the first twelve hours. Overall this also felt like the least close set of matches for round six, but there were still some tight battles to be had. White Town shout out to a huge lead early, and while Vanessa Carlton was able to close the gap for a while, White Town extended the lead again and took a comfortable win; as it happens, Vanessa could never be our woman. Richard Marx and Youssou N’Dour had a back and forth battle, which culminated in a very tight victory to the potential murderer, but as with Mary, Richard swears he left Youssou and Neneh safe and sound by the river. The Aussie dance battle was next up, and The Presets were able to take a dominant early lead over Empire Of The Sun, and while the gap closed a little with later votes, The Presets took the win and continue to the final sixteen, with all fifteen of their people to compete with. The final match saw Wendy Matthews also take a strong early lead which Pink pegged back a little, but not quite enough. This is the day Pink went away, who knew you needed to get more votes than your opponent to win?

Results:

Your Woman defeats A Thousand Miles 11-7

The Day You Went Away defeats Who Knew 10-8

The votes were not quite as thick and definitely not as fast for this set of matches, but they’ve spoken and we have our first four quarter finalists. The Cranberries and Savage Garden did battle first, in a contest between two ARIA #1 hits, and it was The Cranberries taking the win, holding a solid lead throughout the voting period; we’ve sent Savage Garden to the moon with no request to return. Next we had the matchup of No Doubt and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and it was No Doubt who shot ahead with a strong run of votes in the middle to take a decisive lead which Sophie could not peg back; it was murder in the forum. Third, we had another battle of two ARIA #1 hits, from Faith No More and Bomfunk MC’s. Freestyler actually had a lead just after half of the votes had come in, but a string of votes for Epic to close the round gave Faith No More the most commanding win of the night. Finally we had The Veronicas up against Nirvana, who were seeded almost 200 played lower than anyone else who made it this far. Despite a huge gap in their seedings, thus was the closest match of the group and after The Veronicas surged early only to be pegged back by Nirvana, it has ended in a tie. The pervious round votes between both songs was also incredibly close, with only a 0.11% difference between the two, but it’s The Veronicas who have come through, how does that smell?

Zombie defeats To The Moon And Back 10-6
Don’t Speak defeats Murder On The Dancefloor 10-6

This group of matches were a lot less close than others in recent times, and the closing of this round means the quarter finals are set! The first battle was between Madonna and Jam & Spoon, with Madonna never looking in doubt as the winner, scoring 80% of the votes to stroll through to the final eight. The next match was between East 17 and Silverchair, and was a closer affair. After East 17 took an early lead, Silverchair were able to tighten things up a bit, but it was East 17 who came out on top and are a somewhat surprising quarter finalist to me; Silverchair were the highest remaining seed in the game, the new highest is now The Veronicas at 180. The third match saw quite a big upset, with White Town decisively defeating Richard Marx, who felt like a good chance to go a long way before this loss. Finally we have The Presets taking on Wendy Matthews in an all Australian battle, and it was a close one for quite a while, before a string of votes at the end saw The Presets take the lead back, and race on to victory.

Like A Prayer defeats Right In The Night 12-3
It’s Alright defeats Straight Lines 9-6
Your Woman defeats Hazard 10-5

While it might have been expected that the quarter finals would be very tight matches, with one exception they really weren’t. In the first, between The Cranberries and No Doubt, it was back and forth early until The Cranberries scored a string of consecutive votes to take a lead which they were able to hold all the way through to a place in the semi finals. The second match was the tight one, with The Veronicas and Faith No More close all the way throughout and that showed in the final result which was a tie. Faith No More have a convincingly better record on previous votes, and as a result, they move through to the final four. In the third battle, East 17 were a surprise early, managing to match heavy favourite Madonna vote for vote for quite a while. Eventually though, Madonna was able to pull away, stringing together the last seven votes to take an easy path through. The final battle between The Presets and White Town guaranteed that at least one of the final four would be a song that didn’t make it to #1 on ARIA. The Presets raced ahead early, and while White Town closed the gap somewhat, The Presets were able to consolidate with the last four votes to win convincingly in the end.

The semi-finals are over and our two finalists have been decided!

In the first of the semi-finals, we had The Cranberries taking on Faith No More. Zombie was able to take the lead early and never looked back, with Epic unable to make up the difference. Congratulations to Zombie, our first finalist:

The second of the semi-finals, that between Madonna and The Presets, was a much closer battle. Madonna took an early lead, before The Presets pegged that back and took a lead of their own. Madonna was able to even things up again before the final two votes took her down and The Presets move through. Congratulations to My People, our second finalist!

Only two songs remain now, this is it!

Here is the final matchup:

273. The Cranberries - Zombie vs. 687. The Presets - My People

Vote for your favourite song from the two. Votes will close on Sunday at 7pm AEST. To keep suspense and mystery about the result, voting for the final will only be accepted via memo. I will reveal everybody’s vote, including my own, and then the ultimate champion, once the round is closed. Make sure you have your say, good luck to your favourite!
Just over twelve hours remain, if you haven’t already voted and want to do so, send your vote to me via memo only by 7pm AEST tonight.
Well, voting has closed and the results are in. The final was an incredibly tight affair, as it should be. Both songs held the lead at different points during the voting period, but neither was ever able to take more than a one vote lead, as every second vote canceled out the one before. Voting went as follows:

bluezombie - Zombie
antonnalan - My People
Hijinx - My People
NateBoi - Zombie
villages - My People
harleyrules170 - Zombie
DaveNT - My People
ChartGuru - Zombie
alleyt1989 - Zombie
benji2 - My People
discopants - Zombie
brokenrecords - My People
Clinton - My People
irelander - Zombie
392414 - My People

So this means, with an 8-7 result, the winner of the Ultimate Chart Hit Tournament is The Presets - My People! Congratulations! My People also had a better previous votes total than Zombie, and so would have won the tiebreaker if it went to that; Zombie needed two more vote to take the win.

It’s a very impressive result considering this song was the 687th seed, and not a result I would have anticipated when I started the game. While My People never had to do battle with one of the highest seeds (it’s highest ranked opponent was at 223), the list of songs it defeated contains some very popular tracks, so it has had an amazing path to victory:

Round 1: def. 338. Young And Beautiful 11-3
Round 2: def. 850. Everything I’m Not 7-1
Round 3: def. 594. All Rise 9-2
Round 4: def. 303. Music Sounds Better With You 10-3
Round 5: def. 274. Kiss From A Rose 10-5
Round 6: def. 463. Walking On A Dream 10-7
Round 7: def. 223. The Day You Went Away 9-6
QF: def. 666. Your Woman 11-5
SF: def. 339. Like A Prayer 9-7
GF: def. 273. Zombie 8-7

So congratulations again to The Presets, and their ultimate chart hit My People.

I’d like to thank everyone who voted along the way; I hope you all enjoyed the game and had some fun along the way, I have enjoyed it. Thank you to those who included such messages with their final vote, it was much appreciated. I don’t have anything more to add, it’s been a blast and I’ll see you all around the forum.

My People defeats Zombie 8-7
Many thanks BZ! This was very close. I didn't know which way it was gonna go. I know with these long games, they go into cruise mode mid way through the patch, but it certainly got interesting towards the end when the cream rose to the top.
It's amazing how close Zombie came to faltering against Confide In Me and again with Vogue. Makes you wonder what other song maybe just missed around the mid-rounds that otherwise may have gone all the way to the GF.
Much appreciated for your efforts here.

We’ve finally got a winner!
I like both songs so I was going to be happy either way.

Bluezombie thank you for putting this game together. It’s been enjoyable and I only missed one round of voting since the start.
I’m appreciative for all the time you’ve put in since the beginning.

✌️ 😁

I'm glad My People had the tiebreaker on its side, because I wouldn't want my vote to have solely decided the winner when the reason I left my vote until near the end was because they were pretty close for me! An amazing final - I'd actually voted for both of them in all 9/9 rounds prior My People is a perfect winner and probably one of my favourite songs in the whole game. I also never would've expected it to reach the final! I thought Walking On A Dream seemed like it was winning that round at the time, and My People felt like it got a stroke of luck and was probably on borrowed time thereafter. To keep on knocking out some of the most beloved '90s (and 1989) hits is super impressive.

Thanks BZ for the huge effort of running this for almost 18 months
I got all this way and forgot to vote in the final. Although one vote wouldn't have changed the result, I probably would have voted for the Presets anyway.
