The Rules

  • Listen to every song listed (excluding the bonus rate, which is optional) and give it a score between one (1) and ten (10). You can use up to one decimal place, although I recommend only using integers and multiples of 0.5, because you're not special for giving a song a 7.3.
  • You may give one song a zero (0) and one song an eleven (11). These should be reserved for your favourite track and least favourite track. You are NOT required to leave a comment for these songs.
  • You must use the prepared link to send in your scores.
  • Feel free to PM me or my cohost (MashLuke) on Reddit or Discord if you'd like to change any of your scores.
  • I reserve the right to reject any ballots that I suspect of sabotage, and to expose your scores in a variety of humiliating ways.
  • There is a secret bonus rate that can only be accessed ahead of time by sending in scores to this rate! It will be available to everyone during Day 1 of the reveal.
  • You can also add comments to any song! The following format is the only acceptable format for song comments:
Dilemma: 11 picking this as my 11 wasn't a DILEMMA at all hahaha!!!
Any of the following formats are INCORRECT and must be CORRECTED or your ballot will be REJECTED:
Fancy: 1 - I want those twinks Obliterated
Grillz: I work at Lowe's and lost half my pinky toe while moving around outdoor grills, so I have to give this a 1.
Lollipop: I have PTSD from swallowing a Tootsie Pop whole as a child 1
Lean Back: (1) I'm pressed that Remy Ma has a #1 and Nicki doesn't
Humble: 1: I can't relate to this song because I can't help but be annoyingly prideful of my 1000 twitter followers on a faceless stan account

HERE is the link to submit your scores. Be sure to open the link using old Reddit!

HERE is the link to the Spotify playlist. note: missing Empire State of Mind

HERE is a link to a picture of my dogs.

The due date is TBA but will be sometime after November 1st. Thank you to everyone who decides to do this rate, it will be a fun time!!

ETA: The due date is now November 18th at midnight EST.

2019.09.18 07:42 tanooki64 Billboard Hot 100 Greatest Songs of All Time - 60th Anniversary

1
THE TWIST
Chubby Checker
1960 R&B Male
Checker's transformative smash remains the No. 1 all-time Billboard Hot 100 hit, fueled by its dual run atop the weekly chart in September 1960 (for one week) and January 1962 (for two frames). "The Twist" is the only song to rule the Hot 100 in separate release cycles, as it returned to the top after adults caught on to the song and its namesake dance that younger audiences had first popularized. "That style of dancing wasn't there before," Checker, now 76, mused. "It was so explosive, it's never left the dance floor."
2
SMOOTH
Santana Featuring Rob Thomas
1999 Rock Duo/Group
Decades before it launched a thousand Internet memes, "Smooth" was a straight-up four-quadrant smash. The combination of Matchbox 20 singer Rob Thomas' contemporary crossover popularity and Santana's eternal cool, in a moment particularly kind to Latin-tinged pop, proved roundly irresistible, giving the song both a tremendous peak and a long tail on the Hot 100 -- as it spent 30 weeks in the Hot 100's top 10, including 10 at No. 1.
3
MACK THE KNIFE
Bobby Darin
1959 Pop Male
Hailing from Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's 1928 masterpiece Threepenny Opera and detailing the brutal past of the play's lead, "Mack the Knife" was unlikely fodder for Bobby Darin, a teen idol fresh off the success of "Splish Splash," three decades later. But his English-language, swingin' jazz version of the German tune topped the one-year-old Billboard Hot 100 in 1959 for nine non-consecutive weeks -- despite Dick Clark's warning to Darin it wouldn't appeal to the rock-loving kids.
4
UPTOWN FUNK!
Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars
2015 Pop Male
Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars had teamed up on a No. 1 hit before - the latter's "Locked out of Heaven," a six-week leader in 2012-13 (billed as by Mars only), but they bested themselves, and every other song of the 2010s to date, with "Uptown Funk!" The collab, which introduced Ronson's Uptown Special album and set weddings across the country ablaze, zoomed to the Hot 100's summit for 14 weeks, and finished 2015 as the year's top title.
5
HOW DO I LIVE
LeAnn Rimes
1997 Country Female
One year after her Blue breakthrough, teen country sensation Leann Rimes angled more pop with this Diane Warren-penned ballad. The problem: It was too pop for the execs behind 1997 action flick Con Air, who wanted a country version for the film's soundtrack. Trisha Yearwood was recruited for that version, winning a Grammy, but Rimes' was the public's choice, hitting No. 2 on the Hot 100 and setting new records for most weeks in the top 10 (32), and most weeks on the chart (69), both since overtaken.
6
PARTY ROCK ANTHEM
LMFAO Featuring Lauren Bennett & GoonRock
2011 Dance/Electronic Duo/Group
Party rock was in the penthouse of the Hot 100 for six weeks in 2011 as L.A. pop-rap outfit LMFAO's signature hit dominated the music mainstream. The duo of RedFoo and SkyBlu had Hot 100 success in their genes, as the son and grandson (respectively) of Berry Gordy -- founder of the legendary Motown label, whose roster enjoyed chart-topping success from the '60s through the '90s.
7
I GOTTA FEELING
The Black Eyed Peas
2009 Pop Duo/Group
2009's longest-running Hot 100 No. 1 introduced American audiences to the work of French DJ-producer David Guetta, and helped the Peas reinvent themselves with an EDM-friendly sound. It also helped the group set records: When the song first debuted at No. 2 behind its album-mate "Boom Boom Pow," the Peas were one of 11 artists to occupy the Hot 100's top two spots simultaneously.
8
MACARENA (BAYSIDE BOYS MIX)
Los Del Rio
1996 Latin Duo/Group
A phenomenon that invaded pop culture in 1996, the Bayside Boys remix of Los Del Rio's "Macarena" started a dance craze that swept up pre-teens and politicians alike. The song also conquered the Hot 100 for 14 weeks -- a record for a mostly foreign-language song that lasted over two decades.
9
SHAPE OF YOU
Ed Sheeran
2017 Pop Male
Sheeran's first Hot 100 No. 1 ruled for 12 weeks in 2017 and, even after the tropical-flavored pop jam's reign ended, it boasted record-breaking staying power: The song logged a record 33 weeks in the top 10 in 2017, all dating to its debut at the summit that January.
10
PHYSICAL
Olivia Newton-John
1981 Pop Female
Physical was the best of both worlds, mixing the zeitgeist of the '80s fitness craze with an eternally relevant subject: sex. The result, to which Newton-John herself admitted, "I think there's a double entendre," fittingly proved a master of endurance, staying atop the Hot 100 for a then-record-tying 10 weeks.
11
YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE
Debby Boone
1977 Country Female
Daughter of '50s superstar Pat Boone, Debby became a second-gen Hot 100 topper when her "You Light Up My Life" bested the chart for a then-record 10 weeks. Originally recorded as a love song for the 1977 film of the same name, Boone claimed her rendition was inspired by God.
12
HEY JUDE
The Beatles
1968 Rock Duo/Group
The biggest of The Beatles' still-unmatched 20 Hot 100 No. 1s, "Hey Jude" spent a then-record-tying nine weeks atop the chart. It wasn't just the song's reign that was long: The singalong epic ran seven minutes, longest for any No. 1 until Don McLean's "American Pie" in 1972.
13
CLOSER
The Chainsmokers Featuring Halsey
2016 Dance/Electronic Duo/Group
The Chainsmokers -- the EDM-pop duo of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart - followed the kitchy "#Selfie," which reached No. 16 on the Hot 100 in 2014, with three top 10s in 2016. The biggest of them was the 12-week No. 1 "Closer," a swoony team-up with alt-pop superstar Halsey.
14
WE BELONG TOGETHER
Mariah Carey
2005 R&B Female
After a brief hiatus, Mariah Carey made the grandest comeback of her career thus far with 2005's "We Belong Together." It became the icon's 16th No. 1 on the Hot 100, spending a whopping 14 non-consecutive weeks on top.
15
UN-BREAK MY HEART
Toni Braxton
1996 R&B Female
The gripping ballad "Un-Break My Heart" became Toni Braxton's second No. 1 single in 1996, following the double-sided "You're Makin' Me High"/"Let It Flow" -- both from her Grammy-nominated sophomore album Secrets. "Un-Break My Heart" stayed atop the Hot 100 for 11 weeks.
16
YEAH!
Usher Featuring Lil Jon & Ludacris
2004 R&B Male
Yeah! struck a perfect balance of 2004's hottest sounds: Usher's smooth R&B; vocals, Ludacris' free-flowing rhymes and Lil Jon's crunk-R&B; hybrid production. The trio of Atlanta natives was rewarded with 12 weeks atop the Hot 100, in a year where every No. 1 was performed by a person of color.
17
BETTE DAVIS EYES
Kim Carnes
1981 Pop Female
Originally recorded by co-writer Jackie DeShannon in 1974, Kim Carnes' smoky, synth-heavy remake topped the Hot 100 for nine non-consecutive weeks in 1981. The Hollywood icon herself thanked Carnes for the song in a letter; after its Grammy wins for song and record of the year, Davis sent Carnes roses.
18
ENDLESS LOVE
Diana Ross & Lionel Richie
1981 R&B Male/Female
A meeting of two generations of Motown icons yielded the biggest hit for each: "Love" gave Ross her sixth and final solo No. 1, while Richie earned his first of five solo chart-toppers. Despite the ballad's success, the duo has only performed it live once, at the 1982 Academy Awards.
19
TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT (GONNA BE ALRIGHT)
Rod Stewart
1976 Rock Male
A paean to the act of virgin deflowering from the classic rocker, "Tonight's the Night" struck enough of a chord with 1976 audiences to spend eight weeks atop the Hot 100. The second of Rod Stewart's four No. 1s, the ballad also features a French spoken-word segment from then-girlfriend Britt Ekland.
20
FOOLISH GAMES/YOU WERE MEANT FOR ME
Jewel
1997 Pop Female
Alaskan singer-songwriter Jewel spent a then-record 65 weeks on the Hot 100 in 1997 with this split single, thanks to the individual popularity of both breakup songs: the wistful "Meant" and the bitter "Foolish." The single peaked at No. 2, both on the weekly chart and Billboard's 1997 year-end tally.
21
(EVERYTHING I DO) I DO IT FOR YOU
Bryan Adams
1991 Pop Male
Like each of Canadian rocker Bryan Adams' four Hot 100 toppers, 1991's "I Do It for You" hailed from a film soundtrack, serving as love theme for the Kevin Costner blockbuster Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The power ballad spent seven weeks at No. 1, a career-best for Adams.
22
I'LL MAKE LOVE TO YOU
Boyz II Men
1994 R&B Duo/Group
Boyz II Men ceded their single-song record for longest stay at No. 1 to Whitney Houston, but didn't stay in second place for long. With 1994's "I'll Make Love to You," they tied Houston's then-record, and became the first act to have two songs each claim double-digit-week runs at No. 1.
23
THE THEME FROM "A SUMMER PLACE"
Percy Faith And His Orchestra
1960 Pop Male
While the titular Sandra Dee drama that spawned it was shortly forgotten, conductor Percy Faith's cover of "Theme From 'A Summer Place'" made history, spending a record nine weeks at No. 1. The mark went unbeaten for 17 years, and "Theme" remains the longest-reigning instrumental in Hot 100 history.
24
LE FREAK
Chic
1978 Dance/Electronic Duo/Group
Originally written by Chic's Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards as a response to NYC nightclub Studio 54 denying them entry, a title change from "fuck off" to "freak out" resulted in the band's first No. 1, a wiggly disco stomper that topped the chart for six non-consecutive weeks in 1978-79.
25
HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE
Bee Gees
1977 Pop Duo/Group
Not every Bee Gees smash followed in the strutting footsteps of Saturday Night Fever smashes "Night Fever" and "Stayin' Alive." The 1977 soundtrack's first single, blissful ballad "How Deep Is Your Love," showcased Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb's softer side and ranks as their top-charting hit.
26
EYE OF THE TIGER
Survivor
1982 Rock Duo/Group
Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" has soundtracked countless sports montages since Rocky III introduced it to the world (and the Hot 100's apex) in 1982. The song also beat the previous chart best of writesinger Jim Peterik, whose group Ides of March hit No. 2 with "Vehicle" in 1970.
27
WE FOUND LOVE
Rihanna Featuring Calvin Harris
2011 Pop Female

LOW
Flo Rida Featuring T-Pain
2008 Hip-Hop/Rap Male

While his three brothers were conquering the Hot 100 as the Bee Gees, Andy Gibb joined the club with "I Just Want to Be Your Everything," the first of his own three No. 1s on the chart. It remained a family affair: brother Barry wrote and co-produced the disco smash.
30
TOO CLOSE
Next
1998 R&B Duo/Group
Next's first and only Hot 100 No. 1 is an allusion to getting horny while dancing at a club. The R&B; group charted five Hot 100 entries, all in the top 40, between 1997 and 2002, returning to the top 10 with "Wifey" in 2000.
31
EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE
The Police
1983 Rock Duo/Group
Post-punk arena-rockers The Police topped the Hot 100 for eight weeks in 1983 with this ode of unreciprocated romantic intensity, often mistaken by marrying couples as a straightforward ballad of devotion.

32
SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW
Gotye Featuring Kimbra
2012 Rock Male

Adele
2011 Pop Female

Bobby Lewis
1961 R&B Male
The R&B; singer struck gold with "Tossin' and Turnin'," which clocked seven weeks at No. 1 and was the chart's top performing single of 1961. It was so big, it spawned a later sequel of sorts: "I'm Tossin' and Turnin' Again," which peaked at No. 98 the next year.
37
THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS
Johnny Horton
1959 Rock Male

38
ONE SWEET DAY
Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men
1995 R&B Female/Duo/Group
With 12 combined Hot 100 No. 1s between them already at the time of "One Sweet Day," it was no surprise that Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's collaboration was an instant hit. The track debuted at No. 1 in 1995 and held for an unprecedented 16 weeks, a stint matched only once since.

40
SILLY LOVE SONGS
Wings
1976 Rock Duo/Group
Quite possibly the nicest response track ever written, Paul McCartney brushed off critics accusing Wings of specializing in sentimental pap with this bass-heavy, disco-flavored single (Wingle?). It topped the Hot 100 for five non-consecutive weeks in 1976, becoming Macca's fifth post-Beatles No. 1.
41
LET'S GET IT ON
Marvin Gaye
1973 R&B Male
Marvin Gaye spoke about social issues on his 1971 album, What's Going On; two years later, he had zeroed in on more personal topics on the upfront "Let's Get It On." Audiences "got it" and pushed the lovemaking classic to the Hot 100's top spot for two weeks in 1973.
42
NIGHT FEVER
Bee Gees
1978 Dance/Electronic Duo/Group
The partial title track to the 1977's iconic Saturday Night Fever, this disco groover became yet another Bee Gees No. 1 from the soundtrack in March 1978. It was part of a remarkable winning streak for songwriter Barry Gibb, who had writing credits on four consecutive chart-toppers that year.

46
TIE A YELLOW RIBBON ROUND THE OLE OAK TREE
Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando
1973 Pop Duo/Group
A quintessential '70s story song, "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" told of a returning prisoner of war asking his girl to perform the titular action if he's still welcome in her life.

50
CALL ME MAYBE
Carly Rae Jepsen
2012 Pop Female
Jepsen's signature tune boasts the greatest chorus of the 21st century (according to a Billboard staff ranking), but it took tweets from Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez -- not to mention endless lip dubs and parodies -- to help the former Canadian Idol contestant's swoon-worthy pop ditty blow up in 2012.
51
BLURRED LINES
Robin Thicke Featuring T.I. + Pharrell
2013 R&B Male
Though the song would ultimately prove controversial and legally troublesome, "Blurred Lines" briefly made a pop star of Los Angeles R&B; singer Robin Thicke with its infectious hook, irresistible groove and NSFW video.

55
END OF THE ROAD
Boyz II Men
1992 R&B Duo/Group
With its first No. 1, the Philadelphia R&B; quartet broke one of the Hot 100's most prized records, as "Road" spent a then-unprecedented 13 weeks on top. The feat, 15 years in the making, lasted four months, but the Boyz reclaimed the mark in 1994 and outdid that in 1996.

BOOM BOOM POW
The Black Eyed Peas
2009 Pop Duo/Group
No other act has achieved a streak that the Black Eyed Peas linked in 2009, when Fergie, will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo reigned for a record 26 consecutive weeks. The streak kicked off with the 12-week reign of "Boom Boom Pow," a electro-funk banger than became the group's first No. 1.

STAYIN' ALIVE

60
LADY
Kenny Rogers
1980 Country Male
The idea was that Lionel would come from R&B; and I'd come from country, and we'd meet somewhere in pop, Kenny Rogers said of working with writer-producer Lionel Richie on "Lady." It proved a sweet spot: The love song became country vet Rogers' first Hot 100 No. 1 in 1980.
61
TIK TOK
Ke$ha
2010 Pop Female
Though she would later bristle (to say the least) at the rapping party-girl persona she introduced here, Kesha's first solo single was also an instant star-making No. 1. -- mixing elements of French house music with hip-hop flavor and pop star largesse.
62
I'M A BELIEVER
The Monkees
1966 Pop Duo/Group
By 1966, The Monkees capitalized on the exposure of their eponymous NBC comedy, landing three No. 1s, among six top 10s, through 1968. The longest leader was the Neil Diamond-penned pop gem "I'm a Believer," which reigned for six weeks from 1966-67.

THE SIGN
Ace Of Base
1994 Pop Duo/Group
The Swedish quartet already had a smash with the No. 2-peaking "All that She Wants," but "The Sign" -- their first stateside No. 1 -- proved the group's hooky songcraft was no fluke, and put Stockholm on the map in the music industry as an untapped hit-making capital.
66
CENTERFOLD
The J. Geils Band
1982 Rock Duo/Group
After building a touring fanbase throughout the '70s, the J. Geils Band experienced its greatest crossover success in 1982 with the Hot 100-topping, synth-driven "Centerfold."

ALL ABOUT THAT BASS

69
ROYALS
Lorde
2013 Rock Female
A prodigious New Zealand teen writes a song about not relating to anything on the radio, then ends up ruling it anyway: The pop star's minimalist, finger-snapping debut single was such an alternative to what was dominating top 40 then, it was actually promoted to alternative radio stations first.
70
THE BOY IS MINE
Brandy & Monica
1998 R&B Female
This smash was partly inspired by "The Girl Is Mine," the hit Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney duet and lead single from the former's Thriller blockbuster. In this battle of the sexes, the women won: "Girl" stopped at No. 2 in 1983, while "Boy" lasted 13 weeks at No. 1.
71
BECAUSE I LOVE YOU (THE POSTMAN SONG)

While Florida singer Stevie B is largely remembered for his late '80s freestyle bangers, it was a ballad that took him to the Hot 100's apex in 1990. The song's distinctive parenthetical comes from its opening line: "I got your letter from the postman just the other day."

Tag Team
1993 Hip-Hop/Rap Duo/Group

78
THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR
Dionne & Friends
1986 R&B Duo/Group

79
HAPPY
Pharrell
2014 R&B Male

87
HOT STUFF
Donna Summer

YOU'RE SO VAIN
Carly Simon

2018.11.06 12:34 radiofan15 An analysis of Nicki Minaj's one hundred Billboard Hot 100 entries

Nicki Minaj recently became the first woman to chart 100 entries in the Hot 100, an archievement made more impressive when you consider that the current record is held by a TV show with more than the double of those entries (don't worry... it's gonna get surpassed by Drake before the end of the decade) and the fact that she has never archieved a number one hit.
I decided to present a neutral, sort of, analysis of her story in the Billboard Hot 100 and let you guys come out with the conclusions.

AS A LEAD PERFORMER

From her 100 entries, 41 are as a lead performer.... probably at least twice as more as more people expected. From pure raw numbers her best year was this 2018 with 8 entries as a lead in the Hot 100; but her best year as a charting artist was 2010 in which 4 of her Hot 100 entries reached the top 30, but also her best average peak of her yearly entries is in 2016 of all years.
Speaking of peaks, her overall average peak in the Hot 100 as a lead performer is #38, with 6 entries reaching the top 10 and 14 total entering the top 20. Her lowest peaking single to enter the Hot 100 is the Queen album cut Thought I Knew You with The Weeknd, which peaked at #98 and her highest is, as expected, Anaconda in 2014, blocked from the top spot by Taylor Swift's Shake It Off.
2010 (5 entries as a lead)
2011 (5 entries)
2012 (6 entries)
2013 (1 sole entry)

AS A FEATURED PERFORMER

A total of 59 entries as a featured performer are part of Nicki Minaj's discography dating back to 2009, when she first entered the Hot 100 a full six months before the Hot 100 debut of her first single as a lead. It must me noted that Nicki's entries as a feature in the Hot 100 actually decreases over time before picking up again around last year when she started to release at least 2 monthly features.
Her best year as a feature performer was, surprisingly, 2016, when her average feature peaked at #29, with her most successful year overal being 2011 when she was featured in 4 top ten hits out of the 12 she has been featured in. Her overall peak for a charting feature is #39.... one spot lower than her average as a lead performer, with her highest peaking feature being in the remix of Britney Spears' Till The World Ends (#3) and the lowest in the remix of Mariah Carey's Up to my Face (#100)... in fact, 10 of her charting features has been credited as remixes.

HOW MUCH WORTH HAS A NICKI FEATURE?

With over half of her Hot 100 entries being features, it's worth analyzing how worthy they are for the lead performers:

Top 40 Duets Of All Time
One big name on a red-hot hit is great, but sometimes two superstar voices come together in an inspired pairing that is truly special. With Valentine\'s Day\'s celebration of couples in mind, our experts dove into over 50 years of Hot 100 hits to single out the biggest songs by two singers to ever hit the chart. So grab a box of chocolates, dim the lights, cozy up to that special someone and turn up the speakers as we count down the hottest duets of all time.

How This Chart Was Created: The 40 Biggest Duets of All-Time list includes songs that feature two singers sharing equal vocal duties on the track. Ranking is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 since the chart launched in August 1958. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Prior to the Hot 100\'s implementation in 1991 of enhanced radio and sales information from Nielsen BDS and Nielsen SoundScan, songs had shorter reigns at No. 1 and shorter chart lives. To ensure equitable representation of the biggest hits from the past 52 years, earlier time frames were each weighted to account for the difference between turnover rates from those decades and the turnover rates that have occurred since the advent of Nielsen Music data.

40. The Closer I Get To You
Roberta Flack with Donny Hathaway
1978
Just months before Donny Hathaway\'s untimely death, this tender tune for Hathaway and Roberta Flack was a No. 2 hit on the Hot 100 in 1978, but it wasn\'t the first star turn for a song by the pair. Their 1973 duet \"Where Is The Love\" won them a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo Or Group. \"The Closer I Get,\" meanwhile, has gone on to be covered by no less than Beyonce dueting with Luther Vandross in 2003.

39. I Just Can\'t Stop Loving You
Michael Jackson With Siedah Garrett
1987
Michael Jackson is that rare artist that can score on the charts alone, in a group, duetting with another male superstar (for example with Paul McCartney on \"Say Say Say\" and \"The Girl Is Mine\"), and, as was the case with this love ballad, pairing his lilting tones with a female singer. \"I Just Can\'t Stop Loving You,\" which found the King Of Pop trading emotional verses with Siedah Garrett, rose to the top of the Hot 100 in Sept. 1987.

38 . I\'m Your Angel
R. Kelly \& Celine Dion
1998
And the award for oddest pairing goes to\… R. Kelly and Celine Dion, who came together for the duet \"I\'m Your Angel,\" written by Kelly and featured in Dion\'s \"These Are Special Times\" album. Released in 1998, the single reached No. 1 on the Billboard 100 chart and remained there for six weeks.

37. Wild Night
John Mellencamp With Me\'Shell Ndegeocello
1994
The \"Wild Night\" in question seems to have been entirely platonic in this case. There\'s clearly no chemistry between Mellencamp and Ndegeocello in the video, but the two sure have a jammin\' ol\' time on the track. This version of the song, originally by Van Morrison, spent two weeks at No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart the fall of 1994.

36. The Next Time I Fall
Peter Cetera with Amy Grant
1986
Is it possible to fall in love with the same person twice? Peter Cetera and Amy Grant (oh, and songwriter Bobby Caldwell) seem to think so. On the popular song \"The Next Time I Fall,\" which appears on Cetera\'s 1986 album \"Solitude/Solitaire,\" Cetera and Grant harmonize about falling in love all over again with the same lover. Sweet!

35. I Got You Babe
Sonny \& Cher
1965
Iconic \'60-\'70s husband and wife duo Sonny \& Cher had several hits during their career, but none came to define the pair quite like \"I Got You Babe.\" The track spent three weeks atop of Hot 100 in 1965. In addition to wooing couples across the globe, the hit grew to become an easy going love ballad for the hippie generation.

34. All I Have
Jennifer Lopez \& LL Cool J
2003
Based on a sample from Debra Laws\' 1981 song \"Very Special,\" \"All I Have,\" finds J. Lo and LL Cool J talking about a couple that\'s on the verge of calling it quits. Still, while the tune is about splitsville, Jenny from the block and Mr. James manage to separate in style and grace (See Jennifer\'s Louis Vuittons and Gucci bags?).

33. No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)
Barbra Streisand / Donna Summer
1979
For those weathering a breakup, two of the biggest divas of all-time are here to declare that \"enough is enough.\" Donna Summer commiserates with Barbra Streisand over the sad state of dealing with relationships before musically saying \"Screw it! Let\'s dance!\" to a thumping disco beat. It is a truly glorious moment to listen to the singers bust out of their slumps -- and apparently all of America thought so as well, as the song stayed at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for two weeks in 1979.

32. The Girl Is Mine
Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney
1982
Many things are unlikely about the MJ-Macca pairing: that \"The Girl Is Mine\" was actually the lead single off \"Thriller,\" that Jackson would later buy the rights to Beatles songs behind McCartney\'s back, but most of all, that the two mega-stars would ever fight over a woman. But after having a ball recording McCartney\'s \"Say Say Say\" together in 1981, Jackson and his Beatle friend gave it another go with the cheesy, soft-rock duet. \"The Girl Is Mine\" peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100, and stayed there for three weeks -- probably because we were all surprised to see the two superstars singing together.

31. I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)
Aretha Franklin \& George Michael
1987
Considering what we know now, the pairing of Aretha Franklin and George Michael on the uptempo duet \"I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)\" seems a little less strange. After all, every sassy diva needs her gay BFF. But regardless of the head-scratching over its duo of performers, \"I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)\" spent two weeks atop the Hot 100 chart in 1987 as well as 17 weeks total.

30. Friends And Lovers
Carl Anderson \& Gloria Loring
1986
While \"Friends and Lovers\" sounds undoubtedly dated, the airy duet between unlikely pairing of actors/singers Carl Anderson and Gloria Loring was all the rage in \'86. After a popular performance on the soap opera \"Days Of Our Lives\" -- on which Loring starred as lounge singer Liz Chandler -- the song spent two weeks at No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart. For those hoping to move out of the dreaded \"friends zone,\" Anderson and Loring have some encouragement that it\'s actually possible: \"We don\'t have to be one or the other.\"

29. Up Where We Belong
Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes
1982
\"Up Where We Belong\" may be synonymous with the 1982 film \"An Officer and a Gentleman,\" but the Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes duet is just as romantic even when one is not staring at a super-dreamy uniformed Richard Gere. The song not only stayed at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for three weeks in late 1982 -- it also won both the Academy Award and the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for a film in 1983. What we wouldn\'t give for smokey-voiced Joe Cocker to serenade us with nonsense tales of eagles crying, all while being whisked away from our awful factory jobs!

28. Stop Draggin\' My Heart Around
Stevie Nicks With Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers
1981
Although Stevie Nicks\' debut album, \"Bella Donna,\" featured more timeless singles like \"Edge of Seventeen\" and \"Leather and Lace,\" the Tom Petty collaboration \"Stop Draggin\' my Heart Around\" was the world\'s first glimpse of the Fleetwood Mac singer as a solo artist. Produced by Petty and Jimmy Iovine, the rock track was even parodied by \"Weird Al\" Yankovic with the song \"Stop Draggin\' My Car Around.\"

27. No Air
Jordin Sparks with Chris Brown
2008
Between the more self-affirming singles \"Tattoo\" and \"One Step at a Time,\" Jordin Sparks released this lilting duet with R\&B star Chris Brown. A Grammy nominee for Best Pop Collaboration with vocals, \"No Air\" reached No. 3 on the Hot 100 and served as a precursor to Sparks\' emotionally wounded future single, \"Battlefield.\"

26. (I\'ve Had) The Time Of My Life
Bill Medley \& Jennifer Warnes
1987
The Black Eyed Peas recently used the hook of Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes\' duet for their single \"The Time (Dirty Bit),\" but the words \"I\'ve had the time of my life\" will forever be tied to the 1987 film \"Dirty Dancing.\" The soft-rock hit closed out the Patrick Swayze-Jennifer Grey flick and won the 1987 Academy Award for Best Original Song.

25. Easy Lover
Philip Bailey \& Phil Collins
1984
Phil Bailey, the longtime member of Earth, Wind \& Fire, and former Genesis drummer Phil Collins came together for this 80s pop confection off Bailey\'s 1984 album \"Chinese Wall.\" Although the track was Bailey\'s biggest hit by far, Collins scored again the following year with \"Separate Lives,\" his duet with Marilyn Martin.

24. You\'re The One That I Want
John Travolta \& Olivia Newton-John
1978
The peppy collaboration between \"Grease\" stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 in June 1978. \"You\'re The One That I Want,\" along with the actors\' other duet \"Summer Nights,\" helped the soundtrack to the hit 1978 film become certified eight-times platinum, according to the RIAA.

23. Baby, Come To Me
Patti Austin \& James Ingram
1982
It\'s one the greatest baby-making jams of all time, but \"Baby Come to Me\" was far from an immediate hit. When the Patti Austin \& James Ingram duet was first released in 1982, it only made it to no. 73 on the Hot 100. But later that year, the track gained new exposure through its use on ABC soap opera \"General Hospital.\" In response to the newfound buzz, the song was re-released and climbed to No. 1 on both the Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts in early 1983.

22. Nobody
Keith Sweat \& Athena Cage
1996
Keith Sweat, the king of new jack soul, conjured up an intense quiet storm when he teamed up with soulful chanteuse Athena Cage for this steamy R\&B jam in 1996. The pair soared to no. 3 on the Hot 100, and sizzled at the top of the R\&B chart for three hot weeks.

21. You Don\'t Have To Be A Star (To Be In My Show)
Marilyn McCoo \& Billy Davis, Jr.
1976
Marilyn McCoo and Billy David Jr. didn\'t have to struggle to find their chemistry in the studio. Not only had the pair been married for seven years when they recorded this 1976 R\&B classic, they\'d already spent a decade making beautiful music together as part of \'70s soul quintet The 5th Dimension. The pair\'s romantic and musical bond paid off -- the Grammy-winning track went to No. 1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Soul Singles chart.

20. You Don\'t Bring Me Flowers
Barbra Streisand \& Neil Diamond
1978
Some duets exude their magic even though their singers recorded their tracks separately. That was not only the case with this song, but it was never intended to be a duet to begin with. Diamond released his version months before Streisand\'s. It wasn\'t, however, until inventive WAKY Louisville, Ky., programmer Gary Guthrie created a mixed edit that audiences heard the now-classic dual version. Columbia then released the song with both superstars. In just six chart weeks, it became the third Hot 100 No. 1 for each.

19. Don\'t Know Much
Linda Ronstadt feat. Aaron Neville
1989
Though Ronstadt racked eight Hot 100 top 10s between 1975 and 1980, she didn\'t reappear in the top tier until 1987 with the James Ingram duet \"Somewhere Out There\" (No. 2), from \"An American Tail.\" The ballad subsequently won the 1988 song of the year Grammy Award. For her next album, \"Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind,\" Ronstadt included four duets with Neville. This first single not only reached No. 2 on the Hot 100, but it also topped Adult Contemporary for five weeks and won the 1990 Grammy for best pop performance by a duo or group with vocal.

18. Somethin\' Stupid
Nancy Sinatra \& Frank Sinatra
1967
The legendary Frank Sinatra claimed his final Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit -- and second No. 1 -- thanks to an unlikely duet with his daughter Nancy Sinatra. The latter already had some hits under her belt -- including the No. 1 \"These Boots Are Made For Walkin\'\" in 1966 -- so the \"Stupid\" pairing wasn\'t simply a riding-the-coattails moment for the Chairman\'s daughter. It is the only father-daughter duet to reach the top of the Hot 100, where it spent four weeks at the top.

17. The Way I Are
Timbaland \& Keri Hilson
2007
Super producer Timbaland called in a bunch of friends for his 2007 \"Shock Value\" album, including the rising star Keri Hilson, who guests on \"The Way I Are.\" Though the track didn\'t hit No. 1, it did peak at No. 3 -- for four non-consecutive weeks -- and linger on the list for a healthy 38 weeks. \"Way\" was one of four Hot 100 hits from \"Shock Value\" -- Timbo also claimed entries with \"Give It To Me\" (No. 1 for two weeks), \"Release\" (No. 91) and \"Apologize\" (No. 2).

16. Opposites Attract
Paula Abdul with The Wild Pair
1988
Yes, duets with cartoon cats count. The song is perhaps best remembered for its video featuring the animated MC Skat Kat, voiced by the track\'s featured act, the Wild Pair. \"Opposites Attract\" became the fourth and final Hot 100 No. 1 from Abdul\'s debut album, \"Forever Your Girl,\" following \"Straight Up,\" the title cut and \"Cold Hearted.\" A year later, Mariah Carey banked her fourth leader from her eponymous debut set, but no other artists in the chart\'s history have accomplished such out-of-the-gate domination.

15. Empire State of Mind
Jay-Z + Alicia Keys
2009
It\'s an Empire State Building-tall order to create a Big Apple anthem when there\'s already Frank Sinatra\'s \"New York, New York\" (and Billy Joel\'s \"New York State of Mind\"). All the more impressive, then, that Jay-Z and Keys ruled the Hot 100 for five weeks with their modern Gotham theme. A Keys solo piano version reached No. 55 and the \"Glee\" cast opened its second season by performing its rendition, in honor of this year\'s nationals show choir finals taking place in the \"concrete jungle where dreams are made, oh.\" (It peaked at No. 21). Our (biased) favorite line from the song? Jay-Z\'s astute observation, \"now I live on Billboard\"!

14. Promiscuous
Nelly Furtado \& Timbaland
2006
Suggesting that \"Promiscuous\" was a jarring change of pace for Nelly Furtado would be an understatement. As the lead single from her Timbaland-produced \"Loose\" album in 2006, the sexy, thumpy number was a far cry from the more earnest, quirky singles of her first two albums -- including \"I\'m Like a Bird\" and \"Turn Off The Light.\" But sexy clearly worked, as the cheeky \"Promiscuous\" tune spent eight weeks lodged in the No. 1 slot. It was the first of two toppers from \"Loose\" -- she later returned with \"Say It Right.\"

13. Reunited
Peaches \& Herb
1979
The only good thing about breaking up is that it opens the door for making up -- a topic that R\&B duo Peaches \& Herb explored in their 1979 hit \"Reunited.\" The slow-burning jam became a crossover smash, topping both the Hot 100 and R\&B Singles charts. The song has also inspired several cover versions, including one by rock band Faith No More, who performed it during their 2009-10 reunion tour, and German star David Hasselhoff, who sung it at the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

12. Separate Lives
Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin
1985
Before there was \"Black Swan,\" the \'80s gave us the elegant dance film \"White Nights,\" starring Russian ballet icon Mikhail Baryshnikov, as well as Gregory Hines, Helen Mirren and Isabella Rossellini. The movie is also remembered for its hit soundtrack, which yielded two Hot 100 No. 1s: Lionel Richie\'s Oscar-winning \"Say You, Say Me\" and this intimate ballad, written by Stephen Bishop (\"It Might Be You\"). The song became Martin\'s only topper and the fourth of Collins\' seven solo leaders.

11. On My Own
Patti LaBelle \& Michael McDonald
1986
While as the leaders of their respective groups Labelle and the Doobie Brothers, LaBelle and McDonald earned No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles, neither had a solo topper until this 1986 duet. Interestingly, the two singers hadn\'t met until well after the song was recorded and was scaling the chart -- as the single was put together on different coasts in different studios. As Fred Bronson notes in his \"Billboard Book of Number One Hits,\" \"As \'On My Own\' went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, LaBelle and McDonald met for the first time -- at NBC Studios in Burbank (Calif.), where they performed the song on \'The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.\'\"

10. Don\'t Go Breaking My Heart
Elton John \& Kiki Dee
1976
John has recorded so many hit duets he even released an album entitled \"Duets,\" which peaked at No. 25 on the Billboard 200 in 1993. Following his classic pairing with Dee, Elton graced the Hot 100 with the likes of Aretha Franklin, George Michael (their \"Don\'t Let the Sun Go Down on Me\" hit No. 1 in 1992), LeAnn Rimes and RuPaul(!), whose dance remake of this song, from \"Duets,\" dented the chart (No. 92) in 1994. John\'s current album? The collaborative \"The Union,\" with Leon Russell, which stands as John\'s top-charting set (No. 3) on the Billboard 200 since 1976.

9. Islands In The Stream
Kenny Rogers with Dolly Parton
1983
Some 30 years ago, star power didn\'t shine much brighter than that of Rogers and Parton, who charted a combined 22 No. 1s on Country Songs in the \'80s. Add that this song was written by the Bee Gees and it\'s no surprise that it topped the Hot 100 for two weeks, as well as Country Songs and Adult Contemporary. In 1998, Pras Michel borrowed its melody for the chorus of \"Ghetto Supastar (That Is What You Are).\" The reinvention, featuring Ol\' Dirty Bastard and Mya, hit No. 15 on the Hot 100 and No. 8 on R\&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

8. Baby Boy
Beyonce \& Sean Paul
2003
Whether on her own (\"Irreplaceable,\" \"Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)\"); in pairings (\"Beautiful Liar,\" with Shakira, \"Telephone,\" with Lady Gaga); or, in the trio Destiny\'s Child (\"Bills, Bills, Bills,\" \"Say My Name\"), Beyonce = Hot 100 hit-making. This duet marked the second of her five No. 1s since 2003 as a solo artist, following four toppers in Destiny\'s Child in 1999-2001. Paul capped the Hot 100 once before this leader, with \"Get Busy\" (three weeks, 2003), and once after, with \"Temperature\" (one week, 2006).

7. My Boo
Usher and Alicia Keys
2004
Not to be confused with the 1996 hit of the same name by Ghost Town DJs, this ode to having a boyfriend or girlfriend \"that will always have your heart\" was tailor made for success because of the team of R\&B superstars behind it. Not only does the track find Keys\' golden tones mingling with Ushers, the was the track co-written by Keys, Usher and Jermaine Dupri with Manuel Seal and Adonis Shropshire. Little wonder, then, that it rocketed to No. 1 and stayed there for six weeks.

6. I\'m Real
Jennifer Lopez \& Ja Rule
2001
Here\'s another of the four songs that J.Lo, with assistance from Ja Rule, took to No. 1 on the Hot 100 before she joined the judges panel on TV\'s No. 1-rated show, \"American Idol.\" Complementing her new night job, Lopez (previously at No. 36 on this ranking) has recently released the single \"On the Floor,\" featuring Pitbull. The track marks her first appearance on Billboard\'s Dance Airplay chart (where it debuted last week at No. 23) since 2007.

5. Dilemma
Nelly \& Kelly Rowland
2002
If you\'re a member of any group where there is someone who is ostensibly the lead singer -- and you aren\'t them -- it isn\'t easy to break out on your own. So for Destiny\'s Child\'s Kelly Rowland, her first single away from the group was an event. An event that could either turn into a footnote or a smash. And what a smash it was. Her \"Dilemma\" duet with Nelly notched a stunning 10-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, cementing Rowland as not just a backing vocalist to Beyonce, but a solo star in her own right.

4. Ebony And Ivory
Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder
1982
Recorded for Paul McCartney\'s \"Tug Of War\" album, the duet -- which spent seven weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 -- is the longest-running solo No. 1 for either McCartney or his duet partner Stevie Wonder. \"Ebony and Ivory\" works as a sort of ultimate \"can\'t we get along?\" song, with the lyric: \"Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony / side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord why don\'t we?\"

3. The Boy Is Mine
Brandy \& Monica
1998
This 1998 duet had all the makings of a smash single. First, it paired up rising then-teen female R\&B stars Brandy and Monica -- each of whom had notched four top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits on their own, but not yet a No. 1. Second, there were rumors swirling that the two ladies weren\'t exactly on friendly terms. Third, the lyrical content of the song was all about fighting over a man -- perfect fodder for alleged rivals to sing about. The result? A No. 1 that lasted for 13 weeks at the top -- at the time, one of only seven singles in the chart\'s history to spend that long at No. 1.

2. Say Say Say
Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson
1983
Just seeing the words \"Michael Jackson\" and \"Paul McCartney\" placed next to each other would have sent chills up any music fan\'s spine back in 1983, when \"Say, Say, Say\" was released. The super duo\'s hit spent six weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 and was the second of two duets from the pair, following \"The Girl Is Mine\" (No. 2 on Jan. 8, 1983). The stars drifted apart after 1985, when Jackson purchased the massive ATV catalog of songs (which included the majority of the Beatles\' catalog). McCartney was later cool to Jackson, but after the latter\'s passing in 2009, he issued a statement about the King of Pop: \"I feel privileged to have hung out and worked with Michael. He was a massively talented boy man with a gentle soul. His music will be remembered forever and my memories of our time together will be happy ones.\"

1. Endless Love
Diana Ross \& Lionel Richie
1981
Diana Ross \& Lionel Richie\'s \"Endless Love\" crowns our list of the top duets of all time -- and with good reason. It\'s not only the biggest No. 1 hit for either artist (it spent nine weeks at the top), but also clung to the chart for an amazing 27 weeks -- a lengthy run for a single back in 1981. Richie wrote the music and lyrics for the soundtrack tune from the Brooke Shields movie of the same name, and recruited diva Ross to accompany him on the song. \"Endless\" almost returned to the Hot 100 perch nearly 13 years later, when Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey\'s cover stalled at No. 2 on Oct. 1, 1994.

2018.10.07 03:11 yaboyanu SYTYCD Where Are They Now: Season 2

And with 2006 began the Golden Age of SYTYCD.
Top 20
Erin Ellis- Erin has the misfortune of being eliminated early on and having a very common name, making internet stalking her very difficult. She is listed on the faculty at a dance studio in Nashville where her bio mentions a few TV and music video credits. Instagram indicates she is married and had a baby boy last year.
Stanislav Savich- Post-SYTYCD it looks like he continued dancing profesionally. It seems like he taught some classes at Denise Wall's studio, although he is no longer listed. Didn't find too much about him but his bio for faculty at local dance school from few years ago says he has been an instructor in Moscow, Hong Kong, Canada and throughout the United States, including at Columbia University.
Top 18
Jason Williams- Me after complaining Erin had a common name; however, he seems to be doing a lot and has a really active social media presence. He has a number of film and TV credits, including Fame and No Strings Attached, and was part of on of Lady Gaga's first U.S. television appearances on SYTYCD in 2008. Seems like he is working as a dancechoreographer in LA and recently choreographed for the Emmy's Governor's Ball.
Joy Spears- I mostly remember her as Dmitry's first victim, but she seems to have some IMBD credits (Nashville, Passengers, CMT Music Awards) and was teaching at dance schools in Alabama and Nashville. Recently she appeared in a choreographed for this Florida Georgia Line video.
Top 16
Aleksandra Wojda- Dmitry's second victim. She has some interesting IMBD credits, in addition to working in videos for Lady Gaga, Sara Bareilles, and others. Apparently she graduated from Northwestern with dual degrees in Communication Sciences & Disorders and International Studies. It seems like she does some traveling teaching master classes around the U.S. There were probably a million accounts with the name "Aleksandra Wojda" on Instagram and when I finally found hers it had 0 posts, but she does have a different last name so I'm assuming she's married.
Ben Susak- BEN AND HEATHER ARE ALWAYS TOGETHER. Sorry but I always thought this guy belonged in and Austin Powers movie or something, largely due to him having one of the most unfortunate contestant pics in SYTYCD history. But I digress. After SYTYCD, he continued working professionally (Cirque de Soleil, VMAs, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, to name a few) and was recently performing across the U.S. in the National Tour of Wicked. All his social media is private so that's all I got.
Top 14
Jessica Fernandez- Firstly, I am shocked that she was only 19 on the show, I thought she was mid-twenties. Unfortunately, I can't really find out anything about her other than a comment on a YouTuve video from 2010 that says she is a dance teacher.
Jaymz Tuaileva- Not sure about anyone else but he mostly sticks out in my memory for the unforgivable spelling of the name James. Starbucks must be a nightmare for him. Some of his professional credits include dancing for Nikki Minaj and most recently, Cher. He also has made appearances on SYTYCD and DWTS. According to Instagram, has an 11 year old daughter.
Top 12
Ashlee Nino- Filling this season's Ashle/Ashlee/Ashley/Ashleigh quota, was Ashlee Nino, who after somehow surviving one of the worst discos I have seen on SYTYCD becoming the 3rd victim of the curse of Dmitry (but can we really blame Dmitry for this though), went on to perform with a slew of music artists, including Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, and The Roots, among others, and Cirque du Soleil. She was also a body double for Hannah Montanna during her Best of Both World's concert, which I do find very weird and interesting. Recently she directed and produced a commercial for dog treats, has been teaching classes, and danced for LL Cool J. According to Instagram, she met her husband while working for Selena Gomez and they have a 2ish year old son. It seems that she drums as well. This write up got kinda long because I did not like her much on the show but she seems to have a pretty cool life now.
Musa Cooper- According to wikipedia his is married and living in New Jersey working as a professional dancepossibly a professional trainer. It seems like he's also been in a number of commercials and was on tour with Alicia Keys in 2008.
Top 10
Martha Nichols- She is listed as a teacher at Broadway Dance Center in NY, where is says she has danced in a bunch of awards shows (VMA, MTV, etc), with musical artists such as Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna, and was in La La Land. In addition, she has taught classes around the world, choreographed for several music videos, and is on the faculty at NYCDA.
Dmitry Chaplin- After SYTYCD, he appeared as a professional on DWTS and is currently on the Ukrainian version of DWTS. He has periodically returned to SYTYCD (U.S., Holland, Ukraine, Canada) to choreograph and earned an Emmy nomination in 2008. IMBD lists a few television credits, including choreographer for 24 episodes of Bones, a show which my brain would never have associated with the word choreography. A few years ago I remember he toured with Chelsie Hightower (Season 4).
Top 8
Allison Holker- Since her season ended, she has been busy fulfilling her duties as the First Lady of SYTYCD. Of course she married Season 4 contestant Stephen "tWitch" Boss and they have a daughter and son. She was, somewhat confusingly, cast as a professional on Dancing with the Stars despite being a contemporary dancer and makes regular appearances as an All-Star on recent SYTYCD seasons. In 2013, she received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Choreography.
Ryan Rankine- As of 2016, he was performing with Creative Outlet Dance Theatre in Brooklyn, NY. He also had a Broadway dance credit for Fela! in 2009 and has some teaching videos on YouTube but not finding much else.
Top 6
Natalie Fotopoulos- Natalie also toured with Wicked in 2011 and choreographed for SYTYCD Greece in 2007. I actually know someone who is Facebook friends with her and it says she sells Younique now which may be the most disappointing find to date. It also looks like she got married in 2016 and now works at a dance studio in Tennessee.
Ivan Koumaev- Ivan is currently touring with Justin Timberlake, but has also worked with artists such as Usher, Justin Beiber, and Jason Derulo. It looks like he also owns a recording studio and played a role in creating movement for the animated movie Trolls along with teaching master classes.
4th Place
Heidi Groskreutz- According to her Twitter (which to be fair it looks like she doesn't update) bio, she is "an Emmey nominated dancer." At some point she was living and touring in London. I'm pretty sure she also married a well-known ballroom dancer who was twice as old as her in 2008 and they are living in luxury. They had a son in 2012.
3rd Place
Donyelle Jones- After SYTYCD, she appeared on America's Best Dance Crew. She has choreographed and performed in the Wayne Brady Show, taught at a number of dance conventions and studios, and was featured in music videos for artists such as Missy Elliot. Recently she has been teaching master classes. Unfortunately a while ago I saw that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer but it looks like she is doing well. Her Instagram bio also says she's married.
2nd Place
Travis Wall- If Allison and tWitch are the first couple of SYTYCD, then Travis is the king. Travis regularly choreographs for the show, and has earned several Emmy nominations and two wins. He was also featured in a reality show about Shaping Sound, the company he formed with Teddy Forance, Nick Lazzarini, and Kyle Robinson. He has done choreography for VMAs, DWTS, and Nastia Liukin (U.S. gynastics) to name a few and continues to teach master classes.
Winner
Benji Schwimmer- After the show, Benji continued to dance and teach professionally, winning several more Swing Champion titles. He was hired as Paula Abdul's creative director and choreographer around 2009 and co-starred in the 2010 dance film Leading Ladies (which also starred Melanie LaPatin). He at one point owned a dance studio, but I think he is more involved with his family's dance center. More recently he has choreographed for figure skaters such as Jeremy Abbott and Adam Rippon. According to wiki, Benji was actually the Top 20 alternate and ended up taking Hokuto Konishi's place when his Visa didn't clear. I don't know if I ever knew that.
Wow I really burn out by the end of these. Feel free to make an corrections/additions.

2018.04.09 04:08 sconce2600 What the list's end game COULD HAVE looked like if it was just the top ten crossover festivals along with user additions.

The Lineup has been released! Bold denotes acts that ended up on the lineup.
POTENTIAL HEADLINERS
POTENTIAL UNDERCARD:
Playing seven major U.S. festivals
Playing six major U.S. festivals
Playing five major U.S. festivals
Playing four major U.S. festivals
Playing three major U.S. festivals
Playing two major U.S. festivals
Playing one major U.S. festival
Added by users, not currently playing any major U.S. festivals so far
The following have appeared at OSLs once before but have not released new material since their first stint and are therefore less likely to appear in 2018 (To date only Beck and Vance Joy have returned WITHOUT new material making the following acts much less likely)
The following is a list of bands that have played OSLs more than once and the gaps between return performances, considering only two acts have ever played OSLs three times, all acts in this section should be considered less likely than acts that have played OSLs once or never. Note that no act has ever returned quicker than a three year gap, Givers, Fantastic Negrito, and Big Boi were all makeup performances for prior year cancellations.
Headliners
Threepeaters

2017.05.08 18:03 Dictarium [DISCUSSION] My Pop Essential Albums List: Version 2

A True Pop Essentials List, Version 2
The last time I made one of these was about a year ago and I did it in 2 days because of a spontaneous conversation I had with theallrightgatsby. This time, I've taken around three weeks spread out over a few months, and put more thought into it as well.
I've done my best to compile a list of albums that, if you listen to front-to-back, will give you a perfectly crisp view of what pop music is, what it was, and what it could be in the future (though, as you'll see with the drastic change that's happened throughout the course of pop history, this is very difficult to predict).
There are 179 albums here. For artists who are sufficiently important but don't have a solid album-length body of work, a "Greatest Hits" record has been used. Hyperlinked to every decade header, you'll find a collage of all the albums in that decade for your bookmarking purposes if you'd rather view them like that.
Every album here, in my opinion, meets one or more of four criteria:
  1. Too popular to ignore (e.g. Nevermind)
  2. Incredibly influential (e.g. The Man-Machine)
  3. Incredibly high-quality pop album (e.g. Make It Big)
  4. High-quality album exemplary of a pop sub-genre that deserves recognition (e.g. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket)
One last note, I think it's silly to call an album that isn't even 3 years old "essential". For this reason, my list only goes up to 2014. Carly stans will have to wait a year before she is up for her first ballot.
Before I talk anymore, let's get to the albums themselves.

Now,

that list is quite daunting. It's 179 albums, but at about 25 albums per decade early on and later going up to about 35 albums per decade, that's only about 2-4 albums per year which even then seems incredibly restrictive. But, regardless, you may be saying to yourself, "Self, that sure is a shitload of albums," and your Self may respond "Yeah, it is. Isn't there an easier way to get acquainted with pop as a genre?"
Yes, yes there is.
This time around, I'm including something I'm gonna call (for lack of a better name; suggest some in the comments if you think this one's shit) the "Platinum Essentials". This is a list of 50 albums picked from the list above that is a much more of a handshake than a hug with the pop genre, but should still give you a pretty good understanding of it.
Maybe once you've tackled those 50 albums, you can dive deeper into this list!
Anyway, here's the

Platinum Essentials List

"Golly gee. 50 still is an awful large number," you might be continuing say. I agree, it is! So what I've gone ahead and done is put together 7 playlists of all of the "Highlight" songs from the list that you can breeze through in, like, 11-12 hours.
Here they are:
Notes:
  • The Chronic is not on spotify. I've replaced a song from that with a song from Dr. Dre's 1999 album, 2001.
  • Taylor Swift's entire discography is not on Spotify. She is not included in the playlists as a result.

Fun Statistics

It's hard enough to make one essential pop album, but more than one?! That's crazy! Here's the artists who appeared multiple times on the list.
Two Times
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Elvis Presley
  • The Supremes
  • Sly & The Family Stone
  • Prince
  • George Michael (one with Wham!)
  • Janet Jackson
  • Eminem
  • Taylor Swift
  • Rihanna
  • Lady Gaga
  • Bruno Mars
  • *NSYNC
  • Fergie (one with the Black Eyed Peas)
Three Times
  • The Beach Bys
  • Marvin Gaye (one with Tami Tarrell)
  • Diana Ross (two with The Supremes)
  • David Bowie
  • Mariah Carey
  • Whitney Houston
  • Madonna
  • Britney Spears
  • Kanye West
  • Justin Timberlake (two with *NSYNC)
  • Beyoncé
Four Times
  • The Beatles
  • Michael Jackson (across three decades!!)
Five Times
  • Paul McCartney (four with The Beatles)
Here are the years with the most essential albums:
Seven Albums
  • 2007
  • 1967
  • 2012
Six Albums
  • 1995
  • 2006
  • 1982
  • 1977
  • 2010
Five Albums
  • 1994
  • 1983
  • 1971

Discussion

  1. Are there any glaring omissions in your eyes? Anything that has no business being here?
  2. How many of these albums have you listened to? As a frame of reference in case you're discouraged, I've only listened to 75 front-to-back and I made the damn list!
  3. What do you think makes an album "essential"?
  4. Starting next week (I think), I want to bring back the Essential Pop Album of the Week segment I used to do. What albums should I start out with? Also, the reason I stopped it before was because it was just annoying to do every week. If anybody wants to volunteer to do a particular album as a guest writer, let me know. I'll come up with a template of some kind and find a date for you or something.

2015.12.08 07:08 JaguarGator9 JaguarGator9's Week 13 Weird Stat Thread Analysis

This week’s Weird Stat Thread was incredibly well received, and was probably the most comprehensive one to date. For those that missed the thread, here it is in all its weirdness. Some of the weird stats that you guys have come up with (like the one about the Panthers scoring 41 at the Superdome both times and the one relating Marcus Mariota to the 49ers) were unbelievable. I love seeing stuff like that. With this Weird Stat Thread comes the analysis portion. The question is simple: Did the stats hold up? Which stats are destroyed after this week, and which ones live on? Let’s take a look…
NY Jets @ NY Giants
The Jets have beaten the Giants four times. All four times, the #1 single of the previous year was recorded by multiple artists.
Year Previous Year’s #1 Single Artists
1974 Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree Tony Orlando and Dawn
1981 Call Me Blondie
1988 Walk Like an Egyptian The Bangles
1993 End of the Road Boyz II Men
Why do I bring this up? The #1 single of the previous year was “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, a solo artist. That’s not exactly a happy stat for the Jets.
Well, they’re pretty happy about that stat being broken up, as well as the Giants’ inability to close out games.
The Jets have beaten the Giants four times. All four times, the #1 album of the previous year was recorded with a male leading vocalist
Year Previous Year’s #1 Album Artist
1974 The World Is a Ghetto War
1981 The Wall Pink Floyd
1988 Slippery When Wet Bon Jovi
1993 Ropin’ the Wind Garth Brooks
The #1 album of last year was Frozen, which is not recorded with a male leading vocalist (it’s classified as a soundtrack album). Once again, the Giants have the advantage here.
Not even the powers of Elsa were enough to keep the Jets from winning this game and making the NFC East more chaotic.
The Jets have never beaten the Giants in the same year in which the Women’s World Cup was held. The Women’s World Cup was held this year
They still haven’t beaten the Giants in years where the Women’s World Cup was played on grass. Take notes, FIFA.
When the winner of the Hyundai A-League is the same team that finished at the top of the table, the Giants are undefeated against the Jets. In the 2006-07 season, the Melbourne Victory finished at the top of the table and then won the Grand Final; in the 2010-11 season, the Brisbane Roar finished at the top of the table and then won the Grand Final. This past season, the Melbourne Victory finished at the top of the table and then won the Grand Final, so that’s a good sign for the Giants.
This stat came from the Land Down Under. However, the Men at Work on the side of the Jets destroyed it. Were the Men at Work references overkill? If so, It’s a Mistake.
In all four years that the Jets beat the Giants, the higher ranked team in the Gator Bowl (now the TaxSlayer Bowl) defeated the lower ranked team.
Year Previous Gator Bowl Winner Previous Gator Bowl Loser
1974 #11 Texas Tech #20 Tennessee
1981 #3 Pittsburgh #18 South Carolina
1988 #7 LSU #9 South Carolina
1993 #3 Florida #12 South Carolina
I know what you’re probably thinking. Why is South Carolina on the losing end of most of these, and was there really a time where Pittsburgh football was that good? Not sure. However, this stat doesn’t help the Jets this week, because the last Gator Bowl between Iowa and Tennessee featured two unranked teams.
The stat is broken, but when I found made the realization this week that I could use the results of bowl games, it opened up so many more doors for future weird stats. Stay tuned in the coming weeks. That meaningless bowl game in Idaho might mean more than you think if you believe in this weird stat magic.
In all four years that the Jets beat the Giants, the higher ranked team in the Fiesta Bowl defeated the lower ranked team
Year Previous Fiesta Bowl Winner Previous Fiesta Bowl Loser
1974 #10 Arizona State Pittsburgh
1981 #10 Penn State #11 Ohio State
1988 #3 Florida State #5 Nebraska
1993 #6 Syracuse #10 Colorado
The last Fiesta Bowl was won by #20 Boise State over #10 Arizona. Sorry, Jets’ fans. The weird stats are really not on your side today.
The weird stats weren’t on the side of the Jets…
In all four years that the Jets beat the Giants, the lower ranked team in the Cotton Bowl defeated the higher ranked team
Year Previous Cotton Bowl Winner Previous Cotton Bowl Loser
1974 #12 Nebraska #8 Texas
1981 #9 Alabama #6 Baylor
1988 #13 Texas A&M #12 Notre Dame
1993 #5 Notre Dame #4 Texas A&M
Finally, some good news for the Jets. The last Cotton Bowl was between Michigan State and Baylor, and #8 Michigan State defeated #5 Baylor.
Except for this one.
Houston at Buffalo
The Bills have beaten the Texans three times. All three times, the previous Super Bowl halftime show was done by a leading male vocalist: U2 in 2002, Paul McCartney in 2005, and the Rolling Stones in 2006. Katy Perry did the last halftime show, and she’s not a male.
In fairness, Lenny Kravitz did the halftime show this year, so the stat technically holds up if you tweak it a bit. However, if we’re talking about headlining acts, then this stat is busted.
The Bills have only beaten the Texans in years in which the EuroVision winning country was a first-time winner. In 2002, Latvia won for the first time. In 2005, Greece won for the first time. And, in 2006, Finland won for the first time. This year, the winning country was Sweden, who won for the sixth time. Not good for Buffalo.
Sweden winning didn’t impact the Bills. Shocking, since there’s such an obvious connection between EuroVision and the NFL.
All three times that the Bills defeated the Texans, the winner of the Outback Bowl was higher ranked than the losing team.
Year Outback Bowl Winner Outback Bowl Loser
2002 #14 South Carolina Ohio State
2005 #7 Georgia #17 Wisconsin
2006 #16 Florida Iowa
Good news for Buffalo- the last winner was #18 Wisconsin, who defeated #19 Auburn. However, you can flip the script- all 3 times that the Bills defeated the Texans, the Outback Bowl winner was from the SEC, and the loser was from the Big Ten. Then, it becomes problematic for the Bills. The art of the cherry-picked stat.
The stat as it was written helped the Bills. The second stat, however, is busted.
The three times the Bills defeated the Texans, the previous Super Bowl winner was from the AFC. In 2002 and 2005, the previous winner was the Patriots. In 2006, the previous winner was the Steelers. Maybe New England winning the Super Bowl was actually a good thing for Buffalo… but not likely.
Buffalo needs to pull for the AFC in the Super Bowl like Arkansas fans pull for the SEC in the College Football Playoff. Because… fans of entire conferences somehow exist.
The three times that the Bills defeated the Texans, Fiji finished in a top two position at the Hong Kong Sevens. In 2002 and 2006, they were the runner-up, and in 2005, they won. Good news for the Bills- Fiji won the last Hong Kong Sevens. Just for some perspective- Fiji did not finish in the top 2 in 2014, and the Bills lost to the Texans.
I don’t care if you don’t know a thing about rugby sevens (even though it’s awesome to watch). Buffalo, you have to root for Fiji in future tournaments if the United States isn’t playing them.
The three times that the Bills defeated the Texans, the loser of the New Orleans Bowl came from the Sun Belt Conference. In 2002 and 2005, the previous loser was North Texas, and in 2006, the previous loser was Arkansas State. Bad news for the Bills- the last New Orleans Bowl was won by Louisiana-Lafayette, who is part of the Sun Belt.
That meaningless bowl game? After this stat got busted, it’s still meaningless.
The last 6 matchups between the Bills and Texans have all featured a different leading rusher
Year Leading Rusher
2003 Travis Henry
2005 Willis McGahee
2006 Samkon Gado
2009 Ryan Moats
2012 Arian Foster
2014 CJ Spiller
Since CJ Spiller is no longer on the Bills, it’s going to be a seventh consecutive game with a different leading rusher
LeSean McCoy was the leading rusher on Sunday. Seven in a row, but McCoy is probably going to be on the Bills for a long time. This one might be broken next time out.
Baltimore at Miami
Miami has defeated Baltimore five times. All five times, the winner of the Fiesta Bowl was located north of the loser.
Year Previous Fiesta Bowl Winner Previous Fiesta Bowl Loser
1997 Penn State Texas
2000 Nebraska Tennessee
2002 Oregon Colorado
2003 Ohio State Miami
2007 Boise State Oklahoma
The good news for the Dolphins is that Boise State defeated Arizona in the last Fiesta Bowl, and Boise State is located north of Arizona.
It also helped that they were playing Matt Schaub.
The five times that Miami defeated Baltimore, the band Chicago released an album within a year of the game
Year Chicago Album Date of Release Date of Game
1997 The Heart of Chicago 1967-1997 4/22/97 10/19/97
2000 Chicago XXVI: Live in Concert 10/12/99 9/17/00
2002 The Very Best Of: Only the Beginning 7/2/02 11/17/02
2003 The Box 7/22/03 11/16/03
2007 The Best of Chicago: 40th Anniversary Edition 10/2/07 12/16/07
Did Chicago release an album within a year of this game? No. Their last album was released on July 4, 2014. Basically, if you’re a fan of the Dolphins and you see this stat online, and it makes you want to cry, look away, baby, look away.
See, Miami? You don’t need Peter Cetera and a guy that may sound like Cetera but is about half as good to win games against the Ravens. Knew you could do it, even if it took 25 or 6 to 4 tries.
All five times that Miami defeated Baltimore, Manchester United finished in the top three of the Premier League
Year Manchester United Position in the Table
1997 1st (1996-97 season)
2000 1st (1999-2000 season)
2002 3rd (2001-02 season)
2003 1st (2002-03 season)
2007 1st (2006-07 season)
I bring this up because Manchester United did not finish in the top three last season. When these two teams met in 2014 and Manchester United did not finish in the top three, the Dolphins lost.
And Manchester United might not do it again this year either, since all they know how to do now is play 0-0 games.
The five times the Dolphins beat the Ravens, the recipient of Song of the Year at the Grammys had an odd number of words in the title.
Year Song of the Year
1997 Change the World
2000 Smooth
2002 Fallin’
2003 Don’t Know Why
2007 Not Ready to Make Nice
The recipient for Song of the Year this year was Won’t Back Down by Tom Petty “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith. That’s good for the Dolphins.
The stat held up, but that Sam Smith/Tom Petty joke may have been my favorite joke that I ever put in a Weird Stat Thread.
However, the five times the Dolphins beat the Ravens, the recipient of Song of the Year at the Grammys was an American artist.
Year Song of the Year Artist
1997 Change the World Eric Clapton (American)
2000 Smooth Santana & Rob Thomas (American)
2002 Fallin’ Alicia Keys (American)
2003 Don’t Know Why Norah Jones (American)
2007 Not Ready to Make Nice Dixie Chicks (American)
Sam Smith is from the United Kingdom, so that’s not good for Miami.
But Tom Petty is from America, so the stat still holds up in a weird, technical way.
Cincinnati at Cleveland
This is where it’s going to get hard, because I’ve already done weird stats for the Bengals and Browns rivalry. However, I’ll put up a couple. For example, the last time a Browns QB threw 250 yards or more in a game, no interceptions, and won against the Cincinnati Bengals was October 18, 1987.
When you factor in that these teams play each other twice a year and that 250 yards with multiple touchdowns is a normal stat-line for many quarterbacks nowadays, this one shocked me. It was the only stat where I used the PFR box score finder, and the streak is going to last another season.
Since the Browns became a team again in 1999, the Bengals have swept them five times. All five times, in years in which the Fiesta Bowl featured at least one ranked team, the higher ranked team defeated the lower ranked team.
Year Fiesta Bowl Winner Fiesta Bowl Loser
1999 #1 Tennessee #2 Florida State
2005 #5 Utah #19 Pittsburgh
2006 #4 Ohio State #5 Notre Dame
2009 #3 Texas #10 Ohio State
2011 #9 Oklahoma #25 Connecticut
It still blows my mind that Connecticut was actually in the Fiesta Bowl at one point. Still, this isn’t good for the Bengals, because the last Fiesta Bowl was won by #20 Boise State over #10 Arizona.
Doesn’t work anymore. As long as we got that crazy Fiesta Bowl ending from last year, though, it doesn’t matter.
The five times that the Bengals have swept the Browns since the Browns became a team again in 1999, the Final Four winner was located in the Eastern Time Zone
Year Final Four Winner
1999 Connecticut
2005 North Carolina
2006 Florida
2009 North Carolina
2011 Connecticut
Duke is in the Eastern Time Zone, so the Bengals have a chance if that stat holds up to pull off the sweep.
Hear that, Cleveland? Duke is the reason that you got eliminated from the playoffs. Had nothing to do with anything else in the organization.
Jacksonville at Tennessee
Both times that the Jaguars swept the Titans, they made the postseason. If the Jaguars win this week, they will have swept the Titans. Fingers crossed.
You know what they say. It’s better to split your rival, than to lose to them three times in a single season.
Again, this one’s a tough one because I already did a whole thread devoted to Jaguars/Titans, but I’ll put up one more. Both times that the Jaguars swept the Titans (1997 and 2005), a higher ranked ACC team (#12 North Carolina in 1997, #17 Florida State in 2005) won the Gator Bowl/TaxSlayer Bowl. This year, the TaxSlayer Bowl was between an unranked Iowa and Tennessee, so that’s not good for the Jags.
Bob Babich’s questionable decisions to rush three defenders on seemingly every third down were also not good for the Jags. But, if it means that I get another opportunity to hate on Tennessee, as a Gator fan, I’ll pounce on that opportunity.
San Francisco at Chicago
The Chicago Bears are undefeated against the San Francisco 49ers in the new Soldier Field
You let a near-decade long streak end at the hands of Blaine Gabbert. How does that make you feel?
Since 1990, when the 49ers lose to the Bears, they have never won the division, and they’ve only qualified for the postseason once.
Not all hope is lost in San Francisco. Although, who am I kidding?
Since the turn of the century, the Bears have defeated the 49ers five times. All five times, the higher ranked team in the Cotton Bowl won
Year Previous Cotton Bowl Winner Previous Cotton Bowl Loser
2001 #11 Kansas State #21 Tennessee
2004 #16 Mississippi #21 Oklahoma State
2005 #15 Tennessee #22 Texas A&M
2006 #8 Alabama #20 Texas Tech
2014 #9 Missouri #13 Oklahoma State
Bad news for Chicago, since Michigan State won the Cotton Bowl. Michigan State was #8, while Baylor was ranked #5.
I know this is going to be hard for you to do, Bears’ fans, but you’ve got to root for Alabama in this upcoming Cotton Bowl if you play the 49ers next season. It’s your only hope.
Seattle at Minnesota
The Vikings have beaten the Seahawks five times. They’ve missed the playoffs more times than they’ve made it in those seasons.
See? The Vikings intentionally threw that game so their playoff chances would improve. It all makes sense now.
The five times that the Vikings defeated the Seahawks, the #1 album of the previous year was by a solo artist
Year Previous Year’s #1 Album Artist
1976 Elton John’s Greatest Hits Elton John
1990 Don’t Be Cruel Bobby Brown
2003 The Eminem Show Eminem
2006 The Massacre 50 Cent
2009 As I Am Alicia Keys
The #1 album of last year was Frozen, which was not done by a solo artist.
It’s a good sign for next season, though, if these teams meet, since Adele will have the #1 album of 2015.
When the Seahawks play the Vikings in Minnesota in the same year that Mexico wins the Gold Cup, the Vikings have never lost. Mexico won the Gold Cup this year.
Now that this stat is busted, Minnesota fans can root for the United States in the Gold Cup. Now, you have absolutely no reason to root for Mexico, and those dumb, stupid, weak, pathetic, white, white… uh… guilt, white guilt, milquetoast, pieces of human garbage. Apologies for that. Forgot this wasn’t my throwaway account and that I wasn’t on the Donald Trump subreddit.
In years where the Vikings defeat the Seahawks, the lower ranked team has never won the previous year’s Outback Bowl
Year Previous Outback Bowl Winner Previous Outback Bowl Loser
1976 N/A N/A
1990 #9 Auburn #21 Ohio State
2003 #11 Michigan Florida
2006 #16 Florida Iowa
2009 UNR Iowa UNR South Carolina
UNR means unranked. Good news for Minnesota- Wisconsin, which was ranked #18, defeated #19 Auburn in the last Outback Bowl.
Wisconsin never helps out Minnesota in anything. The fact that this stat was broken should surprise absolutely nobody.
When Brazil finishes in a top-2 position in the U20 World Cup, Minnesota has never lost to Seattle. Fortunately for Minnesota, in the U20 World Cup in New Zealand this year, Brazil finished in second place, losing to Serbia.
I don’t want to say that this Minnesota loss was as bad as Brazil’s 7-1 loss in the 2014 World Cup to Germany, but it was about as uncompetitive as it.
Atlanta at Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay has swept Atlanta twice since the two teams became divisional opponents. Both times, the #1 single of the previous year (“Hanging by a Moment” in 2002 [#1 single in 2001], “Bad Day” in 2007 [#1 single in 2006]) featured two uppercase letters in the title. “Happy” only features one.
Tampa Bay doesn’t care about the rules of the alphabet. They pulled off the sweep.
Both times that Tampa Bay swept Atlanta, the EuroVision winner (Latvia in 2002, Serbia in 2007) was a first-time winner. Sweden is not a first time winner, as their victory this year was their sixth all-time.
They also don’t care about the integrity and history of EuroVision.
Both times that Tampa Bay swept Atlanta, the winner of the Cotton Bowl was ranked exactly #10 entering the game (Oklahoma in 2002, Auburn in 2007). Michigan State was ranked #8 in last year’s Cotton Bowl.
Or the arbitrary rankings made by humans at the end of a college football season where no two teams share even remotely close to the same schedule.
Both times that Tampa Bay swept Atlanta, the Buccaneers ended up winning the division.
Carolina clinched the division with Atlanta’s loss. So, that one’s busted, although the Buccaneers would be leading the NFC East right now.
Both times that Tampa Bay swept Atlanta, the more northern team won the Fiesta Bowl (Oregon in 2002 over Colorado, Boise State in 2007 over Oklahoma). Boise State won the last Fiesta Bowl over Arizona, so that stat could hold up with a Tampa Bay win.
And that one did hold up. Surprisingly enough, Tampa Bay and Idaho have more in common than you’d think. They’re both American states, and Boise State helped out the Buccaneers. That’s two things. It’s progress.
Both times that Tampa Bay swept Atlanta, an ACC team won the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (known back then as the Humanitarian Bowl). Clemson won the 2001 game (Tampa Bay swept in 2002), and Miami (FL) won the 2006 game (Tampa Bay swept in 2007). Unfortunately, even with all of the conference realignment that’s occurred recently, Air Force did not join the ACC.
Would anyone have been surprised if a school from Colorado joined the ACC? Don’t answer that or give the commissioner of the conference any ideas.
Both times that Tampa Bay swept Atlanta, the Eastern-most team won the previous Las Vegas Bowl. Utah defeated USC in the 2001 Las Vegas Bowl (Tampa Bay swept in 2002), and BYU defeated Oregon in the 2006 Las Vegas Bowl (Tampa Bay swept in 2007). Unfortunately for Tampa Bay, Utah won the last Las Vegas Bowl over Colorado State
Side note- it is completely unfair that San Diego State, for winning the Mountain West, did not make the Las Vegas Bowl. Unless the conference champion makes a NY6 bowl, the bowl spot for the conference champion should be locked in.
Arizona at St. Louis
In the three years that the Rams swept the Cardinals, the #1 Christmas single in the United Kingdom from the previous year was by multiple people
Year #1 Christmas Single of Previous Year Artist(s)
2002 Somethin’ Stupid Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman
2003 Sound of the Underground Girls Aloud
2012 Military Wives with Gareth Malone Wherever You Are
Unfortunately for the Rams, the #1 single of last Christmas in the United Kingdom was “Something I Need” by Ben Haenow, a solo artist.
Jeff Fisher’s desire to finish at .500 in a series relates to artists from the United Kingdom. Who knew?
Every year that the Rams swept the Cardinals, the Cotton Bowl winner from the previous year was ranked higher than the loser
Year Cotton Bowl Winner Cotton Bowl Loser
2002 #10 Oklahoma Arkansas
2003 #9 Texas LSU
2012 #7 Arkansas #11 Kansas State
Unfortunately for the Rams (again), #8 Michigan State was ranked lower than #5 Baylor by virtue of basic math and an understanding of how numbers work
Also, unfortunately for the Rams, the Cardinals are the better team by virtue of basic math (records) and an understanding of how football works
Every year that the Rams swept the Cardinals, the GoDaddy Bowl winner (GMAC Bowl as it was called back then) came from the MAC
Year Previous GoDaddy Bowl Winner
2002 Marshall
2003 Marshall
2012 Miami (OH)
Fun fact about the 2001 GMAC Bowl (which Marshall won)- the game was the famous 64-61 game against East Carolina. The two quarterbacks in that game both went on to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars- Byron Leftwich (Marshall) and David Garrard (East Carolina). Toledo out of the MAC won the last GoDaddy Bowl, so that’s good news for the Rams
The stat is not busted, as it never said that the Rams are undefeated when the GoDaddy Bowl winner came from the MAC. It just said that their only sweeps were when a MAC team won. The art of the cherry-picked stat.
Every year that the Rams swept the Cardinals, the Citrus Bowl winner came from the SEC
Year Previous Citrus Bowl Winner
2002 Tennessee
2003 Auburn
2012 South Carolina
Some more good news for the Rams (if you’re going to base anything off of the GoDaddy Bowl stat)- the last Citrus Bowl winner was Missouri out of the SEC.
Florida is playing in next year’s Citrus Bowl against Michigan. This means that the Rams won’t sweep the Cardinals next year. If you’ve seen Treon Harris play, you know what I mean.
Every year that the Rams swept the Cardinals, the leading goal-scorer in the Premier League came from a country with a flag whose colors are red, white, and blue
Year Premier League Top Goal Scorer Country
2002 Thierry Henry (2001-02 season) France
2003 Ruud van Nistelrooy (2003-03 season) Netherlands
2012 Robin van Persie (2011-12 season) Netherlands
The leading goal scorer last season was Sergio Aguero, who plays for Argentina (flag colors are blue and white).
This may have been the stupidest stat of the week. It got busted. And I never have to bring up flag colors again.
Kansas City at Oakland
Since the Raiders moved back to Oakland, they have only swept the Chiefs once (2011)
Not happening this year.
Since the Raiders moved to Los Angeles in 1982, they have swept the Chiefs four times. All four times, the #1 single of the previous year was not recorded by a male solo artist
Year #1 Single of Previous Year Artist
1983 Physical Olivia Newton-John
1984 Every Breath You Take The Police
1988 Walk Like an Egyptian The Bangles
2011 Tik Tok Ke$ha
Remember that the #1 single of last year was “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, a solo artist. The Raiders will be looking to break that streak with two wins of their own this year.
Also not happening this year.
How important is this 2 games in 5 weeks stretch for the Chiefs in their rivalry with the Raiders? Since the AFL/NFL merger, the Chiefs have never made the playoffs when they were swept by the Raiders
The Chiefs may be the hottest team in the AFC right now. Seriously. Somehow, they’re in prime position to make the playoffs. Raise your hand if you saw that coming before the London game.
In all four years that the Raiders swept the Chiefs since moving to Los Angeles in 1982, the higher ranked team won the Fiesta Bowl
Year Fiesta Bowl Winner Fiesta Bowl Loser
1983 #11 Arizona State #12 Oklahoma
1984 #14 Ohio State #15 Pittsburgh
1988 #3 Florida State #5 Nebraska
2011 #9 Oklahoma #25 Connecticut
Unfortunately for the Raiders, Boise State (#20) won the last Fiesta Bowl over Arizona (#10). They’ll probably need to sweep the Chiefs to have any chance at making the playoffs this year.
Boise State helping out some teams, but not the Raiders. Not many teams have helped out the Raiders since their last Super Bowl appearance. Heck, not even their head coach helped out the Raiders in that game.
Denver at San Diego
All four times that the Chargers swept the Broncos, a team from London made it to the FA Cup Final
Year of Sweep FA Cup London Team
1982 Tottenham Hotspur & QPR
2006 West Ham United
2007 Chelsea
2010 Chelsea
Arsenal, a London team, made the last FA Cup, so that’s a good sign for the Chargers. Unfortunately, the Chargers are one of the worst teams in football, while the Broncos are one of the best, so I don’t think it’ll help much.
I was correct. This stat did not help at all. Also, this stat wasn’t that cherry-picked; do you know how many teams play in London, and how many good teams play in London at that? The odds that an FA Cup Final has at least one London team are pretty high* It sounds cool in theory, until you actually dissect it.
Carolina at New Orleans
Since the Saints and Panthers joined the same division (NFC South) in 2002, the Panthers have swept the Saints four times. All four years, Bon Jovi did not release a studio album. The impressive thing is that since that realignment, excluding this year, Bon Jovi released five studio albums, with a sixth released this year that could break the streak if the Panthers win on Sunday, and a seventh on the way next year. Still holding on to what they’ve got.
Have a nice day, Carolina. You just snapped that streak and are 12-0. You got it goin’ on.
All four times that the Panthers swept the Saints, the loser of the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl had 2 words in their university name.
Year Previous Potato Bowl Loser
2003 Iowa State
2006 Boise State
2008 Georgia Tech
2012 Utah State
Western Michigan lost the last Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Fortunately for Western Michigan, nobody actually watched the game.
Yes, the bowl game with this as its actual mascot actually matters if you’re a fan of the Panthers or the Saints. Go figure. For the record, Utah State is playing in the next Potato Bowl, so the Panthers need them to lose to Akron.
All four times that the Panthers swept the Saints, the Giants made the playoffs in the previous season. They made the playoffs in 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2011 (Panthers swept in 2003, 2006, 2008 and 2012). Unfortunately for Carolina, the Giants didn’t make the playoffs last year. Fortunately for New England, the Giants didn’t make the playoffs last year.
The Panthers did not need help from the Giants to pull off the sweep this time. The only way the Giants help them out next year is if the games are only 58 minutes long.
The last 3 times that the Panthers swept the Saints, the #16 team in the nation was playing in the Outback Bowl. Unfortunately for Carolina, the #18 and #19 teams played in last year’s Outback Bowl, although we got a great overtime game in the process
Close enough? Maybe?
Philadelphia at New England
The Patriots defeated the Eagles six times. All six times, the #1 single of the previous year had multiple words in the title.
Year Previous #1 Single
1977 Tonight’s the Night (Gonna Be Alright)
1978 Shadow Dancing
2003 How You Remind Me
2004* In da Club
2007 Bad Day
2011 Tik Tok
I put an asterisk next to 2004 for a reason. Technically, the Patriots and the Eagles met in 2005 during the Super Bowl; however, it was part of the 2004 season, so I’m going with 2003’s #1 single. Controversial, I know, but so is every other weird, cherry-picked stat in this thread.
These music related stats, oddly enough, hold the most merit on a week-to-week basis. You’re welcome, Philadelphia.
The five times, excluding postseason, that the Patriots defeated the Eagles, the band Chicago released an album in the same year
Year Chicago Album
1977 Chicago XI
1978 Hot Streets
2003 The Box
2007 The Best of Chicago: 40th Anniversary Edition
2011 Chicago XXXIII: O Christmas Three
Chicago did not release an album this year, so that’s a disadvantage to the Patriots. However, that’s less than the disadvantage to the Eagles, as they don’t have a defense.
It’s all fun and games until the team you insult actually defeats a 10-1 team on their home turf. Maybe instead of Pats fans crowdfunding to pay the DeflateGate fine, they should crowdfund to fund a Chicago album to be released in 2019.
The Colts have never won in the month of December against the Steelers
And the AFC South thanks you for that stat holding up.
The Colts have beaten the Steelers three times since moving to Indianapolis. All three times, the attendance of the previous Grey Cup was over 50,000 spectators
Year Previous Grey Cup Attendance
1984 59,345 (11/27/83)
2005 59,157 (11/27/05)
2008 52,230 (11/25/07)
Oddly enough, the 2005 Grey Cup was held one day before the Colts played the Steelers that year. The most recent Grey Cup attendance, because the game was played at a beautiful yet small stadium in Winnipeg, was 36,634. Not good news for the Colts.
The more Grey Cups played in Winnipeg and Toronto at BMO Field, the better for the Steelers. The more Grey Cups played in Edmonton and Vancouver, the better for the Colts.
The Colts have beaten the Steelers three times since moving to Indianapolis. All three times, the #1 album of the previous year had a one word title.
Year #1 Album of Previous Year
1984 Thriller
2005 Confessions
2008 Daughtry
The #1 album of last year was Frozen, which is a one word title. Unfortunately for the rest of the AFC South, that stat is actually in the favor of Indianapolis.
Elsa’s powers work in mysterious ways.
The 3 times that the Colts defeated the Steelers since moving to Indianapolis, the winner of the previous Cotton Bowl was north of the loser.
Year Previous Cotton Bowl Winner Previous Cotton Bowl Loser
1984 Georgia Texas
2005 Tennessee Texas A&M
2008 Missouri Texas
Good news for the Colts- Michigan State won the last Cotton Bowl over Baylor. Now, as a Jags fan, I’m starting to worry a bit.
Some bowl games were incredibly easy to find patterns for, such as the Cotton Bowl. Others, like the Rose Bowl and the Orange Bowl, were nearly impossible. You may have noticed that trend throughout the thread.
One more for the Sunday night game- the 3 times that the Colts defeated the Steelers since moving to Indianapolis, the World Series winner was located north of the loser.
Year World Series Winner World Series Loser
1984 Detroit Tigers San Diego Padres
2005 Chicago White Sox Houston Astros
2008 Philadelphia Phillies Tampa Bay Rays
Finally, a stat that I can feel comfortable with as a Jags fan. The 2015 World Series was won by the Kansas City Royals, located south of the New York Mets.
I was pulling for the Mets this past World Series, but if it helped the Jaguars out more, then I’m all for it.
Dallas at Washington
Since 1990, Washington has swept Dallas three times. All three times, the #1 single of the previous year and the #1 album of the previous year were recorded by the same artist.
Year #1 Song of the Year #1 Album of the Year Artist
1995 The Sign The Sign Ace of Base
2005 Yeah! Confessions Usher
2012 Rolling in the Deep 21 Adele
Unless Pharrell recorded the entire Frozen album, then that’s not good for Washington. It might be good next year, though, if “Hello” is the #1 song of the year (since we already know that 25 is going to be the highest selling album).
Turns out (and I looked this up), Pharrell did not record the entire Frozen album, so this stat helped Dallas win the game. It also forced DeSean Jackson to run 20 yards backwards on a punt.
Since 1990, Washington has swept Dallas three times. All three times, the SEC West representative in the previous year’s SEC Championship Game was ranked higher than the SEC East representative
Year SEC East Representative of Previous Season SEC West Representative OPS
1995 #6 Florida #3 Alabama
2005 #15 Tennessee #3 Auburn
2012 #12 Georgia #1 LSU
OPS means “of previous season.” I abbreviated it so that the table would look nicer. Last year, the SEC East representative was #14 Missouri, while the SEC West representative was #1 Alabama. That’s a good sign for Washington in their quest to possible win the division by default.
The NFC East: It’s like the AFC South, except more high profile and significantly worse.
Last one for this thread: Since 1990, Washington has swept Dallas three times. All three times, the previous Super Bowl was held in an AFC team’s stadium.
Year Super Bowl Stadium Host Team
1995 XXIX Joe Robbie Stadium Dolphins
2005 XXXIX Alltel Stadium Jaguars
2012 XLVI Lucas Oil Stadium Colts
The last Super Bowl was held at University of Phoenix Stadium, which is the host venue of the Arizona Cardinals of the NFC.
A Super Bowl venue determined the outcome of this game. Weird, because it’s unlikely that a team from the NFC East makes the Super Bowl this year.
That’s all for this week’s Weird Stat Analysis Thread. I should have a bowl game thread up (probably a 2-parter, since there are 40 bowl games) soon in the college football subreddit, which I’ll link to here in Free Talk Friday and in the next Weird Stat Thread, coming out Friday or Saturday. Also, don’t forget to check out the 25 Days of Super Bowl series, which is just 25 random anecdotes and facts about the Super Bowl that not many people know about. This was the latest installment of that, and I’ll have day 8 up at around 9:30 tomorrow on the East Coast.

2015.12.05 20:52 JaguarGator9 JaguarGator9's Week 13 Weird Stat Thread

Before I begin with this Weird Stat Thread, I’d just like to point out two quick things. Number one, if you missed it, I did a Weird Stat Thread for college football for the first time ever. Here’s the link to that if you want to check that out.. Number two, we’ve reached the point in the season where there are certain matchups that are repeating themselves (divisional matchups), and where I’ve already done weird stats for them. I’ll try and come up with new weird stats for those, but there might be less of them, simply because of the matchups repeating themselves. To make up for it, on matchups that haven’t happened yet, I’ll overload on weird stats. With that being said, let’s dive in…
Year Previous Year’s #1 Single Artists
1974 Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree Tony Orlando and Dawn
1981 Call Me Blondie
1988 Walk Like an Egyptian The Bangles
1993 End of the Road Boyz II Men
Why do I bring this up? The #1 single of the previous year was “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, a solo artist. That’s not exactly a happy stat for the Jets.
Year Previous Year’s #1 Album Artist
1974 The World Is a Ghetto War
1981 The Wall Pink Floyd
1988 Slippery When Wet Bon Jovi
1993 Ropin’ the Wind Garth Brooks
The #1 album of last year was Frozen, which is not recorded with a male leading vocalist (it’s classified as a soundtrack album). Once again, the Giants have the advantage here.
Year Previous Gator Bowl Winner Previous Gator Bowl Loser
1974 #11 Texas Tech #20 Tennessee
1981 #3 Pittsburgh #18 South Carolina
1988 #7 LSU #9 South Carolina
1993 #3 Florida #12 South Carolina
I know what you’re probably thinking. Why is South Carolina on the losing end of most of these, and was there really a time where Pittsburgh football was that good? Not sure. However, this stat doesn’t help the Jets this week, because the last Gator Bowl between Iowa and Tennessee featured two unranked teams.
Year Previous Fiesta Bowl Winner Previous Fiesta Bowl Loser
1974 #10 Arizona State Pittsburgh
1981 #10 Penn State #11 Ohio State
1988 #3 Florida State #5 Nebraska
1993 #6 Syracuse #10 Colorado
The last Fiesta Bowl was won by #20 Boise State over #10 Arizona. Sorry, Jets’ fans. The weird stats are really not on your side today.
Year Previous Cotton Bowl Winner Previous Cotton Bowl Loser
1974 #12 Nebraska #8 Texas
1981 #9 Alabama #6 Baylor
1988 #13 Texas A&M #12 Notre Dame
1993 #5 Notre Dame #4 Texas A&M
Finally, some good news for the Jets. The last Cotton Bowl was between Michigan State and Baylor, and #8 Michigan State defeated #5 Baylor.
Year Outback Bowl Winner Outback Bowl Loser
2002 #14 South Carolina Ohio State
2005 #7 Georgia #17 Wisconsin
2006 #16 Florida Iowa
Good news for Buffalo- the last winner was #18 Wisconsin, who defeated #19 Auburn. However, you can flip the script- all 3 times that the Bills defeated the Texans, the Outback Bowl winner was from the SEC, and the loser was from the Big Ten. Then, it becomes problematic for the Bills. The art of the cherry-picked stat.
Year Leading Rusher
2003 Travis Henry
2005 Willis McGahee
2006 Samkon Gado
2009 Ryan Moats
2012 Arian Foster
2014 CJ Spiller
Since CJ Spiller is no longer on the Bills, it’s going to be a seventh consecutive game with a different leading rusher
Year Previous Fiesta Bowl Winner Previous Fiesta Bowl Loser
1997 Penn State Texas
2000 Nebraska Tennessee
2002 Oregon Colorado
2003 Ohio State Miami
2007 Boise State Oklahoma
The good news for the Dolphins is that Boise State defeated Arizona in the last Fiesta Bowl, and Boise State is located north of Arizona.
Year Chicago Album Date of Release Date of Game
1997 The Heart of Chicago 1967-1997 4/22/97 10/19/97
2000 Chicago XXVI: Live in Concert 10/12/99 9/17/00
2002 The Very Best Of: Only the Beginning 7/2/02 11/17/02
2003 The Box 7/22/03 11/16/03
2007 The Best of Chicago: 40th Anniversary Edition 10/2/07 12/16/07
Did Chicago release an album within a year of this game? No. Their last album was released on July 4, 2014. Basically, if you’re a fan of the Dolphins and you see this stat online, and it makes you want to cry, look away, baby, look away.
Year Manchester United Position in the Table
1997 1st (1996-97 season)
2000 1st (1999-2000 season)
2002 3rd (2001-02 season)
2003 1st (2002-03 season)
2007 1st (2006-07 season)
I bring this up because Manchester United did not finish in the top three last season. When these two teams met in 2014 and Manchester United did not finish in the top three, the Dolphins lost.
Year Song of the Year
1997 Change the World
2000 Smooth
2002 Fallin’
2003 Don’t Know Why
2007 Not Ready to Make Nice
The recipient for Song of the Year this year was Won’t Back Down by Tom Petty “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith. That’s good for the Dolphins.
Year Song of the Year Artist
1997 Change the World Eric Clapton (American)
2000 Smooth Santana & Rob Thomas (American)
2002 Fallin’ Alicia Keys (American)
2003 Don’t Know Why Norah Jones (American)
2007 Not Ready to Make Nice Dixie Chicks (American)
Sam Smith is from the United Kingdom, so that’s not good for Miami.
Year Gator Bowl Winner Gator Bowl Loser
1999 #12 Georgia Tech #17 Notre Dame
2005 #17 Florida State West Virginia
2006 #12 Virginia Tech #15 Louisville
2009 Nebraska Clemson
2011 #21 Mississippi State Michigan
Not that this stat matters, because the last Gator Bowl between Iowa and Tennessee featured two unranked teams. Still, an interesting tidbit, to say the least.
Year Fiesta Bowl Winner Fiesta Bowl Loser
1999 #1 Tennessee #2 Florida State
2005 #5 Utah #19 Pittsburgh
2006 #4 Ohio State #5 Notre Dame
2009 #3 Texas #10 Ohio State
2011 #9 Oklahoma #25 Connecticut
It still blows my mind that Connecticut was actually in the Fiesta Bowl at one point. Still, this isn’t good for the Bengals, because the last Fiesta Bowl was won by #20 Boise State over #10 Arizona.
Year Final Four Winner
1999 Connecticut
2005 North Carolina
2006 Florida
2009 North Carolina
2011 Connecticut
Duke is in the Eastern Time Zone, so the Bengals have a chance if that stat holds up to pull off the sweep.
Year Previous Cotton Bowl Winner Previous Cotton Bowl Loser
2001 #11 Kansas State #21 Tennessee
2004 #16 Mississippi #21 Oklahoma State
2005 #15 Tennessee #22 Texas A&M
2006 #8 Alabama #20 Texas Tech
2014 #9 Missouri #13 Oklahoma State
Bad news for Chicago, since Michigan State won the Cotton Bowl. Michigan State was #8, while Baylor was ranked #5.
Year Previous Year’s #1 Album Artist
1976 Elton John’s Greatest Hits Elton John
1990 Don’t Be Cruel Bobby Brown
2003 The Eminem Show Eminem
2006 The Massacre 50 Cent
2009 As I Am Alicia Keys
The #1 album of last year was Frozen, which was not done by a solo artist.
Year Previous Outback Bowl Winner Previous Outback Bowl Loser
1976 N/A N/A
1990 #9 Auburn #21 Ohio State
2003 #11 Michigan Florida
2006 #16 Florida Iowa
2009 UNR Iowa UNR South Carolina
UNR means unranked. Good news for Minnesota- Wisconsin, which was ranked #18, defeated #19 Auburn in the last Outback Bowl.
Year #1 Christmas Single of Previous Year Artist(s)
2002 Somethin’ Stupid Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman
2003 Sound of the Underground Girls Aloud
2012 Military Wives with Gareth Malone Wherever You Are
Unfortunately for the Rams, the #1 single of last Christmas in the United Kingdom was “Something I Need” by Ben Haenow, a solo artist.
Year Cotton Bowl Winner Cotton Bowl Loser
2002 #10 Oklahoma Arkansas
2003 #9 Texas LSU
2012 #7 Arkansas #11 Kansas State
Unfortunately for the Rams (again), #8 Michigan State was ranked lower than #5 Baylor by virtue of basic math and an understanding of how numbers work
Year Previous GoDaddy Bowl Winner
2002 Marshall
2003 Marshall
2012 Miami (OH)
Fun fact about the 2001 GMAC Bowl (which Marshall won)- the game was the famous 64-61 game against East Carolina. The two quarterbacks in that game both went on to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars- Byron Leftwich (Marshall) and David Garrard (East Carolina). Toledo out of the MAC won the last GoDaddy Bowl, so that’s good news for the Rams
Year Previous Citrus Bowl Winner
2002 Tennessee
2003 Auburn
2012 South Carolina
Some more good news for the Rams (if you’re going to base anything off of the GoDaddy Bowl stat)- the last Citrus Bowl winner was Missouri out of the SEC.
Year Premier League Top Goal Scorer Country
2002 Thierry Henry (2001-02 season) France
2003 Ruud van Nistelrooy (2003-03 season) Netherlands
2012 Robin van Persie (2011-12 season) Netherlands
The leading goal scorer last season was Sergio Aguero, who plays for Argentina (flag colors are blue and white).
NOTE: I’ll have the later games up soon. Just wanted to put something up beforehand, as I normally do.
And, here is part 2 with all of the later games
Year #1 Single of Previous Year Artist
1983 Physical Olivia Newton-John
1984 Every Breath You Take The Police
1988 Walk Like an Egyptian The Bangles
2011 Tik Tok Ke$ha
Remember that the #1 single of last year was “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, a solo artist. The Raiders will be looking to break that streak with two wins of their own this year.
Year Fiesta Bowl Winner Fiesta Bowl Loser
1983 #11 Arizona State #12 Oklahoma
1984 #14 Ohio State #15 Pittsburgh
1988 #3 Florida State #5 Nebraska
2011 #9 Oklahoma #25 Connecticut
Unfortunately for the Raiders, Boise State (#20) won the last Fiesta Bowl over Arizona (#10). They’ll probably need to sweep the Chiefs to have any chance at making the playoffs this year.
Year of Sweep FA Cup London Team
1982 Tottenham Hotspur & QPR
2006 West Ham United
2007 Chelsea
2010 Chelsea
Arsenal, a London team, made the last FA Cup, so that’s a good sign for the Chargers. Unfortunately, the Chargers are one of the worst teams in football, while the Broncos are one of the best, so I don’t think it’ll help much.
Year Previous Potato Bowl Loser
2003 Iowa State
2006 Boise State
2008 Georgia Tech
2012 Utah State
Western Michigan lost the last Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Fortunately for Western Michigan, nobody actually watched the game.
Year Previous #1 Single
1977 Tonight’s the Night (Gonna Be Alright)
1978 Shadow Dancing
2003 How You Remind Me
2004* In da Club
2007 Bad Day
2011 Tik Tok
I put an asterisk next to 2004 for a reason. Technically, the Patriots and the Eagles met in 2005 during the Super Bowl; however, it was part of the 2004 season, so I’m going with 2003’s #1 single. Controversial, I know, but so is every other weird, cherry-picked stat in this thread.
Year Chicago Album
1977 Chicago XI
1978 Hot Streets
2003 The Box
2007 The Best of Chicago: 40th Anniversary Edition
2011 Chicago XXXIII: O Christmas Three
Chicago did not release an album this year, so that’s a disadvantage to the Patriots. However, that’s less than the disadvantage to the Eagles, as they don’t have a defense.
Year Previous Grey Cup Attendance
1984 59,345 (11/27/83)
2005 59,157 (11/27/05)
2008 52,230 (11/25/07)
Oddly enough, the 2005 Grey Cup was held one day before the Colts played the Steelers that year. The most recent Grey Cup attendance, because the game was played at a beautiful yet small stadium in Winnipeg, was 36,634. Not good news for the Colts.
Year #1 Album of Previous Year
1984 Thriller
2005 Confessions
2008 Daughtry
The #1 album of last year was Frozen, which is a one word title. Unfortunately for the rest of the AFC South, that stat is actually in the favor of Indianapolis.
Year Previous Cotton Bowl Winner Previous Cotton Bowl Loser
1984 Georgia Texas
2005 Tennessee Texas A&M
2008 Missouri Texas
Good news for the Colts- Michigan State won the last Cotton Bowl over Baylor. Now, as a Jags fan, I’m starting to worry a bit.
Year World Series Winner World Series Loser
1984 Detroit Tigers San Diego Padres
2005 Chicago White Sox Houston Astros
2008 Philadelphia Phillies Tampa Bay Rays
Finally, a stat that I can feel comfortable with as a Jags fan. The 2015 World Series was won by the Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Royals, located south of the New York Mets. EDIT: Yep, the Royals won, not the Chiefs. It was a typo. For a second, I thought the Chiefs were capable of winning playoff games.
Year #1 Song of the Year #1 Album of the Year Artist
1995 The Sign The Sign Ace of Base
2005 Yeah! Confessions Usher
2012 Rolling in the Deep 21 Adele
Unless Pharrell recorded the entire Frozen album, then that’s not good for Washington. It might be good next year, though, if “Hello” is the #1 song of the year (since we already know that 25 is going to be the highest selling album).
Year SEC East Representative of Previous Season SEC West Representative OPS
1995 #6 Florida #3 Alabama
2005 #15 Tennessee #3 Auburn
2012 #12 Georgia #1 LSU
OPS means “of previous season.” I abbreviated it so that the table would look nicer. Last year, the SEC East representative was #14 Missouri, while the SEC West representative was #1 Alabama. That’s a good sign for Washington in their quest to possible win the division by default.
Year Super Bowl Stadium Host Team
1995 XXIX Joe Robbie Stadium Dolphins
2005 XXXIX Alltel Stadium Jaguars
2012 XLVI Lucas Oil Stadium Colts
The last Super Bowl was held at University of Phoenix Stadium, which is the host venue of the Arizona Cardinals of the NFC.

2015.11.24 05:49 JaguarGator9 JaguarGator9's Week 11 Weird Stat Thread Analysis

The Weird Stat Thread has, to my surprise, become one of the biggest weekly things on this subreddit. A couple of weeks ago, someone asked me what stats held up after the week, and which ones could be thrown away. It was a good question, so I decided to do the Weird Stat Thread Analysis after each Monday night game. Did the stats that I posted that had nothing to do with the game hold up in the end? We’re about to find out which ones did. I’m only including stats that could’ve been determined; there’s no point in reviewing a random stat from a Super Bowl or a stat that predicts the future. Which stats held up? Let’s take a look…
The last two meetings, and three of the last six meetings between the Broncos and the Bears have gone into overtime.
That didn’t happen, although the Bears were a two-point conversion away from making it happen.
The last six times the Broncos defeated the Bears, they ended the season with a winning record. The last five times the Broncos defeated the Bears, they made the postseason.
The Broncos are one win away from having a winning record to close out the season. They’re likely going to make the playoffs. This stat is going to hold up.
When the winner of EuroVision is a country that starts with the letter “I,” the Broncos are 4-1.
Year EuroVision Winner Result of Broncos/Bears
1978 Israel Broncos win
1987 Ireland Broncos win
1990 Italy Bears win
1993 Ireland Broncos win
1996 Ireland Broncos win
The winner this year was Sweden, so it’s not like that stat is going to mean anything in particular. However, the Bears are undefeated against the Broncos when the EuroVision winning country begins with an “S”
Not anymore. Bears lost, and the winner of EuroVision was Sweden.
The leading rusher in the last 7 games (including this upcoming one) have been different as well for Oakland:
Year Leading Rusher (OAK)
2011 Michael Bush
2007 LaMont Jordan
2003 Charlie Garner
1996 Jeff HostetleJoe Aska
1990 Bo Jackson
1987 Marcus Allen
It can’t be Michael Bush this year, so consider that streak to be alive.
The leading rusher was Latavius Murray, who had just 28 yards. He’s not Michael Bush. Stat still is in tact.
Additionally, when Elton John does not release a top 70 single, the Lions are 4-0. In 1970, “Border Song” hit #92, and in 2003, 2007 and 2011, he did not release a top 100 single.
Make that 5-0. Amazingly, that stat held up. The Lions need to root for Elton John to not produce music that the American public likes. If that happens, then they might be able to break their circle of lifelessness.
When the Pan-American Games or Summer Olympics are held in the United States, the Raiders have never lost to the Lions (3-0; 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, 1987 Pan American Games in Indianapolis, 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta). When the Pan-American Games or Olympics are held anywhere else, the Lions have never lost to the Raiders (3-0; 2003 Pan American Games in the Dominican Republic, 2007 Pan American Games in Brazil, 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico). The 2015 Pan American Games were held in Canada.
The Pan American Games of 2015 were held in Canada. The Lions are now 4-0. Good sign for 2019 when these teams will meet and the Pan American Games will be in Peru.
When the previous year’s Grey Cup was held in Vancouver, the Raiders have never lost to the Lions. When the previous year’s Grey Cup was held in Edmonton, the Lions have never lost to the Raiders (and this has happened multiple times; this is not a one-off thing). The 2014 Grey Cup was held in… Vancouver. Good luck, Lions.
See what happens when a fellow Cat Bro wishes another cat team good luck? Good things happen. That streak is busted, but the Edmonton streak still holds up, even though it didn’t apply.
The Raiders are 2-0 against the Lions when Sweden wins EuroVision. Sweden won the 2015 EuroVision Song Contest, so they could make it 3-0 after this Sunday. By the way, the winning EuroVision song of 1974 (won by Sweden) was “Waterloo” by ABBA, so some good does come out of that competition.
Make that 2-1. If you took a chance on the Raiders this week, then too bad, because that stat is now busted. The winner that took it all was the Detroit Lions (note the ABBA references).
The leading rusher for the Colts in each matchup since 1969 has been different. It was Donald Brown in 2011, Kenton Keith in 2007, Edgerrin James in 2003, Dominic Rhodes in 2001, Marshall Faulk in 1998, Eric Dickerson in 1989, Randy McMillian in 1986, Lydell Mitchell in 1974, and Tom Matte in the second meeting of 1969. Since Donald Brown won’t be the leading rusher on Sunday, that streak will continue. That’s ten consecutive games of 10 different leading rushers.
Frank Gore was the leading rusher with 34 yards. I’d be shocked if he’s back in 2019. That streak not only holds up now, but it will likely hold up four years from now.
Whenever the Falcons beat the Colts, they have never missed the playoffs. However, the Falcons lose to the Colts, they have never made the playoffs. Considering what the Falcons are doing right now, this is a huge game.
Considering the fact that the Falcons have lost four straight and the Buccaneers are slowly creeping up behind them, I’d be a bit worried that this one may hold up.
When the Christmas #1 single in the United Kingdom of the previous year was exactly 4 words, the Colts have won.
Year Previous Year’s #1 Single Result of Game
2007 A Moment Like This (Leona Lewis) Colts win
2003 Sounds of the Underground (Girls Aloud) Colts win
2001 Can We Fix It? (Bob the Builder) Colts win
You may be wondering a few things here. Number one, were those the only #1 Christmas singles in the UK that were exactly 4 words. Yes. That’s not cherry-picked to a cut-off date. Number two, what was the #1 Christmas single in the UK last year? That was “Something I Need” by Ban Haenow, so it doesn’t fit. The most important question, though- why was “Can We Fix It?” by Bob the Builder the #1 song at Christmastime in 2000? Not only that, but why was it the number one selling song of the year in the United Kingdom?. Just imagine that. Instead of listening to Justin Bieber, One Direction, The Weeknd and Adele on pop radio, you’re listening to Bob the Builder.
Nothing changed. I just wanted to point out the absurdity that Bob the Builder had the #1 single of 2000 in the UK. That’s never gonna get old.
In the last 2 games, exactly 31 points has won the game between the Colts and the Falcons
24 points won it this time. Streak busted.
The Falcons have never defeated the Colts when a Republican was the President of the United States
And based off of Atlanta’s performance last Sunday, it’s not like the Democrats are helping out either. Thanks, Obama.
The last 4 matchups between the Texans and Jets took place at 4 differently named stadiums: MetLife Stadium (2012), New Meadowlands Stadium (2011), Reliant Stadium (2009), Giants Stadium (2006). This next game is taking place at NRG Stadium, so make it 5 out of 5.
Can confirm that they didn’t change the name of the stadium from NRG back to Reliant.
Three of the last five meetings between the Texans and the Jets have taken place in November
Also can confirm that they didn’t randomly change the name of the month.
When the winning EuroVision song had a 1-word title, the Jets have never lost to the Texans (2-0). The winning song of EuroVision 2015 was “Heroes.” Good sign for the Jets if it means anything.
Didn’t happen. Consider that streak to be broken.
In each of the last 4 meetings between the Jets and the Texans, a leading rusher on some team has rushed for under 50 yards. In 2012, Shonn Greene led the Jets in rushing with 26 yards. In 2010, Shonn Greene led the Jets in rushing with 42 yards (and LaDainian Tomlinson was right behind at 36). In 2009, Steve Slaton led the Texans in rushing with 17 yards. And, in 2006, in a game that I can’t believe ever happened, the leading rusher in the game was Leon Washington with 17 yards. Wali Lundy led the Texans in rushing yards with 11, David Carr had 10, Samkon Gado had 4, and Chad Stanley had 0. For the Jets, Cedric Houston had 13, Kevan Barlow had 5, Chad Pennington had 2, and Brad Smith had -10. A combined average of 1.7 yards per carry.
Chris Ivory ran for 36 yards. The incompetence series at halfback lives on.
When the #1 album of the previous year was by a foreigner, the Texans have never lost to the Jets. When the #1 album of the previous year was by an American, the Jets have never lost to the Texans.
Year Previous #1 Album Artist/Nationality Result
2003 The Eminem Show Eminem/USA Jets win
2004 Get Rich or Die Tryin’ 50 Cent/USA Jets win
2006 The Massacre 50 Cent/USA Jets win
2009 As I Am Alicia Keys/USA Jets win
2010 Fearless Taylor Swift/USA Jets win
2011 I Dreamed a Dream Susan Boyle/United Kingdom Texans win
The #1 album of last year was Frozen. For all intents and purposes, that’s an American album. Good news for the Jets.
All the music stats in the world couldn’t stop Ryan Fitzpatrick from laying an egg on Sunday.
Excluding playoff games, the Buccaneers have beaten the Eagles five times. All five times, the #1 single from the previous year was multiple words: “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips, “The Sign” by Ace of Base, “Too Close” by Next, “How You Remind Me” by Nickelback, and “We Belong Together” by Mariah Carey. I bring this up because the #1 single of last year was “Happy.” Not good for the Bucs.
This one did not hold up. Surprisingly, every other stat in favor of the Bucs did. Look:
In years in which the Pan-American Games are held, the Buccaneers are 4-0 against the Eagles. This year, the Pan-American Games were held.
Check
When the Women’s World Cup is either hosted or won by the United States in the same year as a Bucs/Eagles matchup, the Buccaneers are 3-0. The Women’s World Cup this year was won by the United States.
Check
Tampa Bay’s 5 wins have all come when the previous year’s Grey Cup was held in a stadium that is host to a Western Division team. In 1991 and 1995, Vancouver hosted the cup. In 1999, Winnipeg hosted it. In 2003, Edmonton hosted it, and in 2006, Vancouver hosted it. This past Grey Cup was held in Vancouver, so there is a chance here for Tampa Bay.
And check. The weird stats were on Tampa Bay’s side, and now, they’re somehow .500 and in the playoff hunt. Raise your hand if you saw that one coming.
The last time a Washington quarterback threw for over 110 yards in a game and won against Carolina was in 2001. That’s a very long time for a number that’s incredibly easy to achieve.
Didn’t win. Stat still holds up. Incompetence at QB continues.
Three of the last seven scorelines between Washington and Carolina were 20-17
We went from one of the most common scores in NFL history to a score that’s never happened since the merger: 44-16. And that’s the waaaaaay the news goes.
Whenever Def Leppard releases a new or compilation album, Washington is undefeated against Carolina (Vaults- 1995, Euphoria- 1999, Yeah!- 2006). I bring this up because Def Leppard released their self-titled album (and a great one at that) this year.
Washington lost. At least there’s no more hysteria over the Cam Newton celebration controversy. Pour some sugar on that.
Since 2000, when the Frozen Four was held in a metropolitan that housed an NFL team, Carolina is 4-0. When the Frozen Four was held in a metropolitan that did not house an NFL team, Carolina is 0-3.
Year Site of Frozen Four Result of Carolina/Washington
2000 Providence (Providence Civic Center) Washington wins
2001 Albany (Pepsi Arena) Washington wins
2003 Buffalo (HSBC Arena) Carolina wins
2006 Milwaukee (Bradley Center) Washington wins
2009 Washington DC (Verizon Center) Carolina wins
2011 Minneapolis/St. Paul (Xcel Energy Center) Carolina wins
2012 Tampa Bay (Tampa Bay Times Forum) Carolina wins
The 2015 Frozen Four was held at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. They have an NFL team, and a pretty good one at that. Good news for Carolina.
Good news for Carolina, indeed. They won this one handily.
Finally for part one (I’ll have part 2, including the rest of the Sunday games and the Monday night game), when the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship was held at a place that had hosted a Super Bowl in the past eight years or was scheduled to host a Super Bowl at the time of the championship, Carolina is 4-0. When the championship was held at a place that hadn’t hosted a Super Bowl in the past eight years and/or wasn’t scheduled to host the Super Bowl at the time of the championship, Carolina is 0-7. Let’s exhibit:
Year of Championship Site Super Bowl? Result of Carolina/Washington
1995 Continental Airlines Arena No Washington wins
1997 RCA Dome No Washington wins
1998 Alamodome No Washington wins
1999 Tropicana Field No Washington wins
2000 RCA Dome No Washington wins
2001 Metrodome No (hosted Super Bowl XXVI in 1992) Washington wins
2003 Louisiana Superdome Yes (Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002) Carolina wins
2006 RCA Dome No Washington wins
2009 Ford Field Yes (hosted Super Bowl XL in 2006) Carolina wins
2011 Reliant Stadium Yes (hosted Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004) Carolina wins
2012 Superdome Yes (scheduled to host Super Bowl XLVII in 2013) Carolina wins
Remember that in 2012, we knew that the Superdome would host the Super Bowl in 2013 at the time. This isn’t a hindsight issue. In 2015, the Final Four was held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, which hosted Super Bowl XLVI in 2012. Based off of that, Carolina is scheduled to win.
Fun fact: I really had to cherry-pick this stat to make it work. I completely blanked out and thought that the Metrodome never hosted the Super Bowl as I was doing this (it was 1 in the morning and I was running on no sleep; you can see why this was the last stat of the day), so I had to find someway to make this work. And, it did. Carolina is still unbeaten under this scenario, and the stat still holds up.
Dallas has never finished with a losing record in seasons where they beat Miami. The Cowboys have beaten the Dolphins six times, including Super Bowl VI.
Dallas needs to go 5-1 for that stat to hold up at the end of the year. Not impossible, but certainly unlikely.
The Cowboys have beaten the Dolphins five times in the regular season. In each of the five seasons, the #1 song of the previous year was 2 words.
Year of Dallas’ Victory Previous Year’s #1 Song
2011 Tik Tok
2007 Bad Day
1999 Too Close
1996 Gangsta’s Paradise
1981 Call Me
“Happy” was the #1 song of the year in 2014. Last time I checked, it’s not two words. Good luck going against the English language, Dallas, in this one.
If that stat got busted..
Even weirder than that? The #1 song in years where the Dolphins defeated the Cowboys was never 2 words. Here’s the list:
Year of Miami’s Victory Previous Year’s #1 Song
2003 How You Remind Me
1993 End of the Road
1989 Faith
1987 That’s What Friends Are For
1984 Every Breath You Take
1978 Tonight’s the Night (Gonna Be Alright)
1973 The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face
The #1 song, as mentioned before, was “Happy.” That’s one word. Advantage goes to Miami.
Then naturally, so did this stat. The music related stats failed in that game. However, not all hope was lost.
When South Africa finishes in a top 3 position at the Rugby World Cup, the Cowboys have never lost to the Dolphins. The RWC first played in 1987. In 1999 and 2011, South Africa finished in third place, and the Cowboys won. In 2007, South Africa won the tournament, and the Cowboys won. This year, South Africa finished in third place at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Advantage Dallas.
If you are a Dallas fan and don’t care about rugby, start to, just because of what South Africa can do for your chances of beating Miami. It worked on Sunday.
I did this in one of the first weird stat threads, but I’m going to do it again because it applies to every game of this entire series. Every regular season game of this entire series has featured a player named Tony on a team. I’m just going with the first player I find:
Year Player Named Tony
2011 Tony Romo (DAL)
2007 Tony Romo (DAL)
2003 Tony Dixon (DAL)
1999 Tony Martin (MIA)
1996 Tony Tolbert (DAL)
1993 Tony Tolbert (DAL)
1989 Tony Tolbert (DAL)
1987 Tony Nathan (MIA)
1984 Tony Dorsett (DAL)
1981 Tony Dorsett (DAL)
1978 Tony Hill (DAL)
1973 Toni Fritsch (DAL)
Tony Romo played for the Cowboys on Sunday. That stat still holds up, incredibly. Because Tony is such a common name…
In two of Baltimore’s three victories over St. Louis, the Ravens scored exactly 37 points. Two out of three… well, you know what Meat Loaf says about that.
Make it two out of four. Maybe Meat Loaf should make a new song about that? Actually, considering how bad his vocals are now, maybe that’s not a good idea.
When the Ravens beat the Rams, they have finished with a record of .500 or better once. When the Ravens lose to the Rams, they have never finished below .500. In a way, losing to the Rams is actually a good thing for Baltimore historically speaking.
Unless Matt Schaub can go on the greatest run ever, that one is going to hold up. Beating the Rams is actually bad for the Ravens.
The Rams have never missed the playoffs when they beat the Ravens; in fact, in every year that the Rams defeated the Ravens, they won their division. However, they have never finished with more than 6 wins when they lose to the Ravens.
St. Louis needs to go 3-3 to break that streak. With the way their QB situation is right now, it doesn’t look likely.
The Rams have had a different starting QB in each game against the Ravens. It was Sam Bradford in 2011, Gus Frerotte in 2007, Marc Bulger in 2003, Kurt Warner in 1999, and Tony Banks in 1996. Add Case Keenum into the mix for 2015, and that streak is going to hold up.
When these teams meet again in 2019, I don’t think Case Keenum will be starting. This one may hold up for a long time.
When the Ravens win, the #1 song of the previous year was by a solo artist or a solo artist with a featured artist. When the Rams win, the #1 song of the previous year was by a group.
Year Previous Year’s #1 Song Result of Game
1996 Gangsta’s Paradise (Coolio ft. LV) Ravens win
1999 Too Close (Next) Rams win
2003 How You Remind Me (Nickelback) Rams win
2007 Bad Day (Daniel Powter) Ravens win
2011 Tik Tok (Kesha) Ravens win
The #1 song of last year was by Pharrell Williams, a solo artist. Advantage goes to the Ravens in this game.
Clap along if you feel like your streak is still intact. Clap along if you feel like your streak is still a fact.
When the EuroVision winning song is 2 words or less, the Ravens are undefeated against the Rams. When the EuroVision winning song is greater than that, the Rams are undefeated against the Ravens.
Year EuroVision Winning Song Result of Game
1996 The Voice [2 words] Ravens win
1999 Take Me to Your Heaven [5 words] Rams win
2003 Everyway That I Can [4 words] Rams win
2007 Molitva [1 word] Ravens win
2011 Running Scared [2 words] Ravens win
The winning song this year was “Heroes,” which is one word. The music stats seem to be in Baltimore’s favor entering this game.
One word song. Advantage Ravens. Stat still holds up. Praise be to EuroVision.
The Rams have never won against the Ravens when the previous year’s Super Bowl was played in an NFC Stadium. They won in 2003 (the previous Super Bowl was held in Qualcomm Stadium) and in 1999 (the previous Super Bowl was held in Pro Player Stadium)
The weird stats just did not work out for the Rams on Sunday. Another one still intact.
Here’s a stat that actually favors the Rams for a change: The Ravens have never beat the Rams when the previous year’s Super Bowl was played in a stadium named after a team. When the previous year’s Super Bowl was held in a stadium not named after a team, the Rams have always won
Year Previous Year’s Super Bowl Result of Game
1996 Sun Devil Stadium Ravens win
1999 Pro Player Stadium Rams win
2003 Qualcomm Stadium Rams win
2007 Dolphin Stadium Ravens win
2011 Cowboys Stadium Ravens win
Sun Devil, Dolphin and Cowboys. Qualcomm and Pro Player. See the connection there? Fortunately for the Rams, University of Phoenix Stadium is not named after a team.
One of these stats was bound to be busted. However, the majority won. Most of the stats favored the Ravens, and the Ravens won.
When the Pan American Games were held at least partially in August, the Rams have never lost to the Ravens. When the Pan American Games were held in any other month, the Ravens have never lost to the Rams. There were no Pan American Games in 1996. In 1999, the Games went from July to August, and in 2003, the Games were held entirely in August. In 2007, the Games were held entirely in July, and in 2011, the Games were held entirely in October. Unfortunately for the Rams, the 2015 Pan American Games were held entirely in July. Fortunately for the Rams, the 2019 Pan American Games will be held partially in August. Remind me.
Like this one.
When the final word of the Frozen Four hosting arena started with a C, the Ravens have never lost to the Rams. When the final word of the Frozen Four hosting arena started with an A, the Rams have never lost to the Ravens.
Year Frozen Four Arena Final Word Result of Game
1996 Riverfront Coliseum Coliseum Ravens win
1999 Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim Anaheim Rams win
2003 HSBC Arena Arena Rams win
2007 Scottrade Center Center Ravens win
2011 Xcel Energy Center Center Ravens win
The 2015 Frozen Four was held at TD Garden. Take that for what it’s worth. Maybe the advantage goes to the Ravens and then the stat can be expanded to consonants versus vowels.
And this one, when expanded to include consonants.
When an SEC team wins the NCAA Tournament, the Ravens have never lost to the Rams. Fortunately for the Rams, Duke won the last NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately for every college basketball fan, Duke won the last NCAA Tournament.
Again, some stats were bound to be busted. The majority won.
This series has been incredibly even. If Kansas City wins on Sunday, they tie it up at 55-55-1.
All even now.
The last five times the Chargers and Chiefs met in November, the Chargers won. The last time they lost, Philip Rivers was still in college.
In fairness, the Chargers did look like a college team on Sunday. I’m gonna regret saying that considering our game against them next week. Don’t blow this, Jaguars.
The Chargers have never swept the Chiefs when the previous year’s #1 Christmas song in the UK ended in a question mark.
Year Previous Year’s #1 Christmas Song in the UK Did the Chargers Sweep?
1960 What Do You Want to Make Those Eyes at Me For? No
1985 Do They Know It’s Christmas? No
1990 Do They Know It’s Christmas? No
2001 Can We Fix It? No
2005 Do They Know It’s Christmas? No
There were three different versions of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” that finished as the #1 single at Christmas. And yes, we actually got Bob the Builder back into the weird stats.
Has nothing to do with anything, since last year’s #1 single didn’t end in a question mark. It’s just another reminder that Bob the Builder was actually a hit song.
The Vikings have never swept the Packers when the winner of the US Open (golf) was European. Fortunately for them, Jordan Spieth won the US Open this year. Keep in mind that since 2010, four of the six US Open winners were European, so it’s not like this is a rare occurrence.
Not gonna happen this year. It was worth a shot, though.
Blaine Gabbert has never won a road game west of Indianapolis. Good luck, 49ers.
In fairness, he played better. The bad news? He’s still Blaine Gabbert.
The Seahawks have swept the 49ers five times in franchise history (a win on Sunday makes it 6). They have made the playoffs all five times. Conversely, the 49ers have never made the playoffs when getting swept by the Seahawks.
After what the Falcons are doing right now to essentially throw away the wild card, it’s not impossible that this one holds up when all is said and done.
In the seasons where the Seahawks sweep the 49ers, the #1 song of the previous year was sung by a male lead vocalist.
Year of Sweep Previous Year’s #1 Song Artist
2014 Thrift Shop Macklemore ft. Ryan Lewis & Wanz
2007 Bad Day Daniel Powter
2005 Yeah! Usher ft. Lil Jon & Ludacris
2004 In da Club 50 Cent
2003 How You Remind Me Nickelback
The #1 song of last year was performed by Pharrell Williams, who is a male vocalist. Advantage goes to the Seahawks.
Streak holds up. Pharrell Williams does it again.
The 5 times the Seahawks swept the 49ers, the Super Bowl from the previous year was held in a stadium that hosts an AFC team.
Year of Sweep Previous Year’s Super Bowl Stadium AFC Team
2014 MetLife Stadium Jets
2007 Dolphin Stadium Dolphins
2005 Alltel Stadium Jaguars
2004 Reliant Stadium Texans
2003 Qualcomm Stadium Chargers
Last year’s Super Bowl was hosted by the Arizona Cardinals. We’ll see if the streak holds up on Sunday.
As for the Super Bowl stats..
The last 5 times the Seahawks swept the 49ers, the final song of the previous Super Bowl’s halftime show was a male’s song.
Year of Sweep Final Song of the Previous Halftime Show Artist
2014 Just the Way You Are Bruno Mars
2007 Purple Rain Prince
2005 Hey Jude Paul McCartney
2004 Rock Your Body Justin Timberlake
2003 Message in a Bottle Sting/The Police
Last time I checked, “Firework” is not a male’s song. Good luck, Seahawks… not that you’ll need it against Blaine Gabbert in all likelihood.
They did not hold up. At all.
Cincinnati has scored more than 24 points against the Cardinals four times. They are .500 in those games. More points aren’t always the answer.
Now they’re below .500 when scoring 24+ points. Funny how that works.
The Cardinals have lost to the Bengals four times. In all four years, Bon Jovi released an album:
Year Bon Jovi Album
1985 7800 Fahrenheit
1994 Cross Road
2003 This Left Feels Right
2007 Lost Highway
Bon Jovi released an album this year, releasing Burning Bridges on 8/21/15. The Cardinals are in trouble. They’ll be living on a prayer if that stat holds true.
The Cardinals broke the Bon Jovi curse. Good for them to get rid of the bad medicine.
The Bengals have defeated the Cardinals four times. They have never made the playoffs when defeating the Cardinals. Translation: Losing to the Cardinals may actually be a good thing. Don’t have to worry about that, though, since the game is in primetime.
So that’s why he simulated the snap count and got penalized. He wanted to do it after reading this stat.
Since the Bengals became a team, LSU has won the National Championship for college football twice. Both times, the Bengals defeated the Cardinals in that same season. Tiger Bros.
And that’s why LSU wants to fire Les Miles. Secretly, the AD is a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals.
And finally, in every season since the merger that the Bills have swept the Patriots, Elton John released a single that charted in the top 30 of the United States. Considering the fact that he hasn’t released a top 30 single since 1999, there’s a reason why the Bills have struggled.
One team needs Elton John to continue to not make radio friendly pop songs. Another team needs Elton John to get back to his winning ways.
I’ll likely have a special Thanksgiving edition of the Weird Stat Thread up in a few days, because there are 3 games being played on that day. Keep an eye out for that one.

2015.11.21 06:47 JaguarGator9 JaguarGator9's Week 11 Weird Stat Thread

We’re at week 11 on the weird stat thread. Here’s a fun fact for you: I was at the Jags game last night, and got back into the hotel room at 12:30 in the morning. Woke up just before 3:00 in the morning to catch a flight to Atlanta to then catch a flight back home (connecting), then had to announce two volleyball games and do research on the teams since all the higher seeds lost yesterday, which I was not expecting. These past 24 hours have been crazy in a good way, so I had to crash. Apologies for not getting the whole thing up on Friday night/early Saturday morning, but for what I’ve got, it’s here and bigger than ever (the second part will come tomorrow morning). Anything weird and wacky that will not be mentioned in any broadcast and has nothing to do with the game is in here. Today’s question- how can we fit Bob the Builder into the weird stats? Let’s dive right in and find out…
Year Previous Super Bowl Winner Result of Broncos/Bears
1996 Cowboys Broncos win
1993 Cowboys Broncos win
1987 Giants Broncos win
1978 Cowboys Broncos win
1971 Cowboys Broncos win
You may notice that two of the Super Bowl victors actually won against the Broncos in the Super Bowl. It was a calculated move by Denver- intentionally lose the Super Bowl to guarantee a victory against Chicago the next season.
Year EuroVision Winner Result of Broncos/Bears
1978 Israel Broncos win
1987 Ireland Broncos win
1990 Italy Bears win
1993 Ireland Broncos win
1996 Ireland Broncos win
The winner this year was Sweden, so it’s not like that stat is going to mean anything in particular. However, the Bears are undefeated against the Broncos when the EuroVision winning country begins with an “S”
Year Detroit QB Oakland QB
2011 Matt Stafford Carson Palmer
2007 Jon Kitna Josh McCown
2003 Joey Harrington Rick Mirer

It can’t be Michael Bush this year, so consider that streak to be alive.

You may be wondering a few things here. Number one, were those the only #1 Christmas singles in the UK that were exactly 4 words. Yes. That’s not cherry-picked to a cut-off date. Number two, what was the #1 Christmas single in the UK last year? That was “Something I Need” by Ban Haenow, so it doesn’t fit. The most important question, though- why was “Can We Fix It?” by Bob the Builder the #1 song at Christmastime in 2000? Not only that, but why was it the number one selling song of the year in the United Kingdom?. Just imagine that. Instead of listening to Justin Bieber, One Direction, The Weeknd and Adele on pop radio, you’re listening to Bob the Builder.

2012.12.30 19:30 tennisstarFJ The top 10 tech 'fails' of 2012 CNN Tech: /r/EverythingReddit : Daily News

(CNN) -- Well, you can't win 'em all. In 2012, we saw big tech advances. Smartphones got bigger. Tablets got smaller. Social media played a role in everything from a presidential election to disaster relief. But with advances come clunkers. When you're in a field that demands near-constant innovation and unprecedented levels of creativity, sometimes even the most successful players are going to shoot and miss. So, at the risk of playing Scrooge in this season of good will, here we come to wallow in it. Because, let's face it: The Internet loves a good fail. Behold the top 10 tech "fails" of 2012, with wishes for happier days ahead to all involved. Apple Maps Apple's unofficial slogan, "It Just Works," took a beating on this one. Along with the rollout of the much anticipated iPhone 5 in September, Apple overhauled iOS, the operating system that runs the phone, its iPad and other mobile devices. A much-hyped feature of the change was Apple's first effort at its own mapping app -- after dumping rival Google's map software. The result was so bad that a few days later Apple's CEO was essentially telling customers to use Google Maps. Entire cities appeared in the wrong place. Landmarks such as the Washington Monument showed up submerged in bodies of water, and big chunks of the globe appeared as roadless wastelands. "At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers," CEO Tim Cook wrote in a rare apology. "With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better." It was a little more than a month later when Scott Forstall, vice president in charge of iOS, was ousted from the company, reportedly, in part, for not wanting to apologize for Maps. The company has been gradually improving Maps, but as recently as this month Australian police complained that an Apple Maps glitch could endanger motorists by mislocating a city of 30,000 people in the middle of the outback. The top 12 tech stories of 2012 Facebook's IPO
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in New York before his company's initial public offering. Everybody uses Facebook. And everybody likes to make money. So everybody's going to gobble up Facebook stock, right? So went the conventional thinking -- at least among those of us who spend more time thinking about mobile phones than mutual funds. But on Wall Street? Not so much. It's hard to remember a stock opening more hyped than Facebook's when it hit the market in May. The stock began the day worth about $38. Then, after what everyone predicted to be a dynamic day of trading for the social media superstar, it closed at ... well ... about $38. It wouldn't take long for the pinstripe-suit types to decide it wasn't even worth that. Facebook's stock bottomed out in September, falling below $18. Since then, it's been steadily rebounding and currently sells for about $28. Facebook says it has solid financial plans for the future. And the stock may well keep climbing, eventually turning a profit for folks who bought early. But that fateful day in May will be a reminder that Wall Street and Silicon Valley don't always play well together. Airtime When the man who created Napster and helped launch Facebook talks, the tech industry listens. And when Sean Parker and partner Shawn Fanning tease something new called Airtime, techies fall all over themselves to see what the next great innovation will be. But then, at a fancy launch event featuring celebrities such as Alicia Keys and Snoop Dogg, Parker announces that it's ... basically, a random Web chat tool. Cue the collective, "Huh?" It didn't help that, at that fancy event, Airtime crashed over and over again. Or that folks had a hard time seeing how it would be different than Chatroulette (although Parker promised more users would actually be wearing pants). In October, Parker admitted that Airtme, launched with more than $33 million in backing, had just 10,000 active users. (That's $3,300 spent per user, if you're scoring along at home.) "Running a startup is like eating glass," he said at the All Things D conference. "You just start to like the taste of your own blood." Ouch. Online coupons "These aren't your grandma's coupons!" the digital generation so brashly declared. With their mobile apps and irreverent style, daily-deal offerings such as Groupon and Living Social were all the rage as 2012 dawned. Now? Um, not so much. Groupon, perhaps the best-known player in the field, watched its value plummet 79% in 2012. Its stock value dropped about three-quarters since opening in November 2011 as high-profile investors washed their hands of it. And this is the company Google reportedly tried to buy for $6 billion in 2010. LivingSocial, meanwhile, announced last month it was laying off 400 people. That's after announcing months of revenue losses. So what happened? Inbox fatigue made some users stop checking the deals. A glut of offers you don't care about (pottery classes?) can make your eyes glaze over. And some businesses quit making offers, saying they never saw the promised returns on their investment. Nexus Q When Google gets something right, they get it really, really right. Redefining Web search? Yep. World's leading mobile system? Check. A car that drives itself? Vroom! But some of the Big G's outings in the gadget world have hit with a thud. Enter ... the Nexus Q. The size and shape of a Magic Eight Ball, the Nexus Q is (or was ... it's hard to say) a media streamer that uses Android to play audio and video. It's also made in the United States, no small thing in a world where virtually all gadgets come from China. Unfortunately, in the grand tradition of Google Wave, nobody really knew what it was when it was released in June. Its release date was pushed back and, eventually, Google just gave everybody who pre-ordered a free one. The Q has not officially been canned. But on Google's online store, the never-released gadget is listed as "not available at this time." Stop Online Piracy Act
People protest the proposed Stop Online Piracy Act outside lawmakers' offices in January in New York. The new law was supposed to be about fighting online piracy. Who's going to be against that, right? Answer: Pretty much the whole Internet. Members of Congress sponsored the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, and related bills to make it easier to shut down websites that illegally share music, movies and other content. But opponents argued it went too far and could end up shutting down legitimate sites while stifling free expression in the process. Unfortunately for backers of SOPA, Web heavyweights such as Google, Facebook, Reddit and Wikipedia joined the fight against the bill. Sites went black on January 18 to raise awareness. Members of communities such as Reddit put intense pressure on lawmakers (including soon-to-be GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan) until they dropped their support or went on record opposing the bill. The unprecedented backlash eventually caused supporters to shelve SOPA, and quite possibly ushered in a new age of Web activism. 'Social discovery' apps If the first wave of social networking was about hooking up with friends, the next wave would be about meeting strangers -- or so the thinking went. Tech-world pundits predicted a new wave of "social discovery" apps that would change the way we meet people. The basic idea was that, by using phones' GPS, users could see who else was nearby and then meet up with other users with shared friends or similar interests. "If we get this right, I cannot think of a bigger thing to be working on right now," Paul Davison, CEO of the app Highlight, told CNN in June. "We can take billions and billions of dollars." Significantly, he also chose not to tell a reporter how many users the app had at the time. Banjo and Glancee were apps that did something similar. Others, such as Skout and Grindr, were even more specific -- they let you hunt down willing partners for a quick hookup. But here's the thing -- some users, particularly women, found the apps a little creepy. OK, so you know that somebody sitting in the same bar as you likes the Pixies, "Firefly," the fantasy stylings of George R.R. Martin and the Atlanta Braves. Are you really just going to start waving around your smartphone to get their attention? Sure, they've got good taste. But they still might be jerks. Color It was supposed to be a tech-world slam-dunk. Instead, it became a cautionary tale about what some feel could become a tech "bubble." Color, a photo-sharing mobile app, stoked excitement in the startup community that was virtually unrivaled. Before it had a single user, Color had raised $41 million from investors. So certain were its Silicon Valley creators that, reportedly, they turned down a $200 million buyout offer from Google. With much fanfare, Color launched in March 2011. But users soon complained that the app, designed to share photos with the people around you, often didn't find anyone for them to share with. Its creators were forced to announce they were working on a major overhaul on the same day it was released. Color tallied about 1 million users at its peak and, more recently, was reportedly down to about 100,000. Compare that to the roughly 100 million users of photo app Instagram (it had about 27 million when Facebook bought it last year), and you see the problem. Color will be shutting down on New Year's Eve. Zynga
Zynga is the maker of such social games as the popular "Words With Friends." It reads like an old VH1 "Behind the Music" episode. "Zynga was riding high. Love them or hate them, its games like "Mafia Wars" and "FarmVille" were everywhere, clogging up Facebook pages and spurring millions of bored casual gamers to pay real cash for virtual cows. Then, it all came crumbling down." OK, maybe "crumbling down" is an overstatement. But things in The 'Ville definitely didn't go Zynga's way in 2012. In October, Zynga announced it was laying off 5% of its employees, shutting down its studio in Boston and proposing the closure of others in Japan and England. (It would be entirely cynical to suggest Zynga hoped to bury that news by making the announcement during Apple's much-hyped iPad Mini event. So we won't suggest that here.) Facebook, which gets a cut when people spend money on games such as "FarmVille," said that income from Zynga was down 20% over last year. And, like unskilled mafia warriors, Zynga shot itself in the foot again in March when it bought the company that makes mobile game "Draw Something" for an eye-popping $180 million. But fascination with "Draw Something" dropped off fast. When's the last time you played? Twitter twits OK, so you can post something stupid anywhere. But there's something about Twitter's rapid-fire, 140-character bursts that brings out the stupid in people. From companies embarrassing themselves to celebrities behaving badly, it's hard to name just one Twitter doofus. But here are a few nominees: • Chris Brown, the hip-hop star, consistently used Twitter to make himself look like a foul-mouthed rage monster. Instead of thanking fans after winning a Grammy, he launched a profanity-laced bromide at his "haters." Then there were the misogynistic, scatological insults he hurled at comedian-critic Jenny Johnson before "quitting" Twitter. (He's back.) • McDonald's thought it would get a little of that social media love it had been hearing about in January when it created the #McDstories hashtag -- asking customers to share their favorite McDonald's memories. Then it found out what happens when you give the Internet open access to your advertising effort. McDonald's yanked the campaign after just two hours and countless food-horror stories about fingernails, insects and bouts of food poisoning. • Spike Lee was, like many Twitter users, angered by the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Tweeting the home address of shooter George Zimmerman would have been questionable enough. But Lee mistakenly tweeted out the address of a couple who have a son by that name. They had to leave their home after being besieged by reporters and threats. Lee would later apologize and "reach an agreement" with the aggrieved family. • Greek triple jumper Paraskevi Papachristou was on her way to the Olympics when she tried a little ill-advised Twitter humor. With so many African Olympians in London, "the West Nile mosquitoes will at least eat homemade food!" she wrote. Her tweet was quickly criticized as racially insensitive, and Greece's Olympic Committee barred her from participating in the Games. • Oprah Winfrey had been gushing for weeks about how much she loved the new Microsoft Surface tablet, culminating in this tweet: "Gotta say love that SURFACE! Have bought 12 already for Christmas gifts." Unfortunately for her, those words were followed by ... "via Twitter for iPad."
