Our community has had a lot of face offs / showdowns for music over the years. it all started with the classic 100 Song Face Off, which has had several versions, and since then there have been some very fun variations (most recently the third version of the video game song showdown, which just had its final round before the semi finals!).

So I've been wanting to make a thread like this for a long time. what is a song you heard for the first time in any of these contests that you still listen to or really love? I have a lot of them and I know I can't be the only one!! you can also talk about anything else related to the song face offs if you rly want to :J ♪

There's only one song that I remember getting from a faceoff: Everything Black - Unlike Pluto, Mike Taylor

I know there's heaps of songs I saved, though.

did i first hear bluebird due to a face off? i feel like i must have because it got me to listen to depression cherry (an album which i don't think was quite as good as bluebird as a song is)

I went all the way back to V3 of the 100 Song Face-off, and I found quite a few.

Because I'm EDM trash (yay recent version):
-Everything Black - Unlike Pluto
-Monody - TheFatRat feat. Laura Brehm

Because I'm choir nerd:
-The Hymn of Acxiom - Vienna Teng (I went on to suggest it for my choir to sing - which they finally did WHILE I WAS ABROAD REEEE)

Others:
-Keeping Your Head Up - Birdy
-In the Name of Love - Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha (was late to the hype train for this lol)
-Halsey in general
-Hurricane - 30 Seconds to Mars
-Sound of Silence - Dami Im

I wonder where some Smash Camp Medley of Madness picks come from... :hmmazurill:

The winning song from the last game showdown (can’t remember the name) was what got me interested in the Yakuza series. Such a beautiful song.

Hmm, only one I can remember is Fresh Static Snow by Porter Robinson. I hated it at the time too. :P Still my least fav of his songs, but it's grown on me over time.
