Some of you may recall that shortly after 'Head Carrier' was released, I put together a game of Pixies "survivor". Now that we've had a chance to digest BtE and its bonus material, I thought it might be worth revisiting, if folks are up for playing.

Just vote for your least favorite Pixies 2.0 song and every few days I will remove the song with the most votes. In the end, we'll hopefully have a trim, punchy 2.0 collection of 12 songs (continuing in the 2.0 format).

Here's the list (46 songs!!):

All I Think About Now
All the Saints
Andro Queen
Another Toe in the Ocean
Baal's Back
Bagboy
Bel Esprit
Bird of Prey
Blue Eyed Hexe
Catfish Kate
Caught in a Dream
Chapel Hill
Classic Masher
Daniel Boone
Death Horizon
Greens and Blues
Head Carrier
Hey, Debussy
How I Learned to Earn Rewards
I Just Can't Break It to You
In the Arms of Mrs.†Mark of Cain
Indie Cindy
Jaime Bravo
Long Rider
Los Surfers Muertos
Magdalena 318
Mal De Mer
Might as Well Be Gone
On Graveyard Hill
Oona
Plaster of Paris
Please Don't Go
Ready for Love
Ring the Bell
Silver Bullet
Silver Snail
Snakes
St. Nazaire
Talent
Tenement Song
The Good Works of Cyrus
This Is My Fate
Um Chagga Lagga
Under the Marigold
What Goes Boom
Women of War

I also put together a 2.0 Survivor playlist for those that have Spotify (includes everything except 'Women of War'):

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5OG0auENf8QeaaRvgRbBhW?si=XPaK1ES_TE6FAeiWaUW6WQ

Let the slaughter begin.

I'd keep going - maybe once the album survivor ends?
Sprite Posted - 01/29/2021 : 04:35:36
I'm up for it. I have been listening to the BTE+demos a lot in the past year. Not getting bored at all, demos really grown on me now.

not me! :D


it's educational
BunsenH Posted - 01/25/2021 : 14:18:28
Yeah - it just seemed like interest waned. I'm happy to host, but how many are still interested?

I think interest may have waned. I'm game to keep playing if someone wants to host.

AT least UCL is gone, makes my day.

For this round: This is my fate.

I think the song fits perfectly on BTE, which by now is - possibly - my 3rd favorite Pixies album (after Trompe and Bossanova). But taken outside the album, it does not work for me. I mean, when I want to listen to Tom Waits, then I listen to ... Tom Waits.

Bedbug Posted - 06/05/2020 : 10:29:35
I do not really have a strong feeling toward the remaining songs. I like them all to varying degrees.

Since my favorites are voted off, I would like to offer my votes to the highest bidder, or even the lowest bidder. Let me know how you would like me to vote and I'll double your voting power just like that.
BunsenH Posted - 06/05/2020 : 06:17:52
I partially fell off, but it seemed like things slowed (a lot). There were only six votes this round. Maybe I should set a minimum threshold!!??!

If we keep this going anyway, my vote goes to "Caught in a Dream", which isn't enough to save "Los Surfers Meurtos" -- not that it should have been save, IMO.

Los Surfers Muertos 3
Caught in a Dream 2
Greens and Blues 1

New round. Cast your vote.
tamefan Posted - 06/04/2020 : 23:36:37
Is this still running? If so, I vote for Greens and Blues.

Howwwww did it out-last Oona, Graveyard, and Lone Rider?

Classic Masher, Bagboy, Head Carrier, Cindy, Cain, and Nazaire have gotta go. To the gallows. Drawn and quartered. Strapped to a rocket pointed at the heart of the Sun. These songs must be slaughtered to vindicate the terrible crimes that were committed against Oona.

yall have made a real mess with your votes, clearly you've all been driven mad by the lockdown.

As my 97 year old Russian grandmother would say: oy yoy yoy yoy....

Edit: HOW IS CATFISH KATE BETTER THAN OONA. WAT. whyyyyyyy
Bedbug Posted - 05/18/2020 : 13:36:42
I am going to vote off my favorite 2.0 song, Los Surfers Muertos.

We donít deserve it anyway.

Goodbye surfers. Sorry you werenít appreciated. Sorry that Greens and Blues will out live you. Life is not fair.

Sorry to fall off! My votes go to St. Nazaire and Blue-Eyed Hexe, makin the totals:

St. Nazaire 2
Caught in a Dream 1
UCL 3
Catfish 1
Indie Cindy 1
Blue Eyed Hexe 3
Hey, Debussy 1
Greens and Blues 1
Los Surfers 1

UCL and Hexe are gone. New round. Let's switch to 1 vote per player per round. 23 songs remain -- exactly half-way through...

Good idea. I'll switch us back after this round.

Um Chagga Lagga - I feel like I should like this one more than I do. Kind of falls flat for me by the time it is over. Would it be better if it ended at the 2min mark? I'm not too interested after that.

Welcome Two Reelers!

Oh, this stings... I would have at least liked to see AQ stick around until a later round.

St. Nazaire 1
Caught in a Dream 2
Oona 3
Um Chagga Lagga 2
Indie Cindy 1
Andro Queen 4
Hey Debussy 1


Killing Oona and Andro. New round!
