No asterisks were harmed in the thread title...

Inspired by spottymuldoon's Dylan game, which was inspired by Alex's Porcupine Tree game, here's the deal:

From Can't Buy a Thrill through Gaucho, we'll vote on the songs from each album in chronological order
One plus vote per day (no minuses) per album

First three songs to get to 10 votes from each album move on to the semi-finals.

There will then be a wild card round, comprised of all the 4th place songs (including ties), plus "FM" and "Here at the Western World"
Again, first three to 10 move on

Semi-finals will be split into two groups of 12, and will be seeded (all the first songs to 10 will be split up, etc.), and five from each group will move on to the final round

Can't Buy a Thrill results:

Dirty Work, Reelin' In the Years & Do It Again move on to the semi-finals
Wild card: Only a Fool Would Say That (9 votes)

Countdown to Ecstasy results:

My Old School, Bodhisattva & Show Biz Kids move on to the semi-finals
Wild Card: King of the World goes (8 votes)

Pretzel Logic results:

Any Major Dude, Pretzel Logic & Rikki Don't Lose That Number move on to the semi-finals
Wild card: Monkey in Your Soul (4 votes)

Katy Lied results:

Doctor Wu, Black Friday & Rose Darling move on to the semi-finals
Wild cards: Bad Sneakers & Everyone's Gone to the Movies (9 votes each)

Royal Scam results:

Kid Charlemagne, The Royal Scam & Don't Take Me Alive move on to the semi-finals
Wild card: The Caves of Altamira (9 votes)

Aja results:

Deacon Blues, Aja & Josie move on to the semi-finals
Wild card: Black Cow (7 votes)

Gaucho results:

Time Out Of Mind, Babylon Sisters & Het Nineteen move on to the semi-finals
Wild cards: All the rest of the songs on the album (2 votes each)

Wild card results:

Only a Fool Would Say That, Bad Sneakers & FM move on to the semi-finals

Semi-final #1 results:

Kid Charlemagne, Any Major Dude, Bodhisattva, Rikki Don't Lose That Number, Bad Sneakers & Don't Take Me Alive go to the finals
Honorable mention to Dirty Work (9 votes) and Black Friday (8)

Semi-final #2 results:

Doctor Wu, Deacon Blues, Rose Darling, My Old School, Reelin' in the Years & The Royal Scam go to the finals
Honorable mention to Josie (9 votes)

I'm suing for copyright infringement :) Should we do a redo? I knew I should have gotten a patent.

The cadence and the words of that line reminds me of another line from a PT song (Dark Matter ?) where the voice over says something like...
You have just had a frontal lobotomy...all your thoughts have been stripped away, along with most of your personality.

You've just had a heavy session of electro shock therapy, and you're more relaxed than you've been in weeks. All those childhood traumas wiped away...

What this has to do with Steely Dan, I don't know, but, then again, Fagen wrote some pretty twisted sheet

Just laughed so hard I had unkown matter coming out of my nose, mouth, and other orifices, and it spewed all over my laptop. You gonna clean up this mess? Buy me a new one if the warranty doesn't cover random excrement?

That's a lot better than verbal constipation, but I must throw a penalty flag for excessive use of assticks

It's simple...we're voting on Can't Buy a Thrill right now, and the first three songs to 10 votes move on to the semi-finals. Then we vote on Countdown, and Pretzel, and so on
