@Remmy with “Ghost of Christmas Past”!

 

Congrats Remmy, you have overthrown Mariah Carey to take the title of King of the Holidays 2022! This winter is your wonderland, and your song clearly managed to melt the ice in the judge’s hearts to give you such an impressive score. This is your highest scoring song to date, surpassing your final entry from Season 1 “Paper Airplane Crashes”. Amazing job, and congrats again!

It was absolutely stunning from start to end! An emotional gut punch of a holiday track, this was the sort of song I was jealous I didn’t come up with so REALLY REALLY well done :hug::1stplace:

The absolute SMASH… actually tied for #2 highest scoring song along with Augmented’s “When Tradition Falls” and Jackson’s “Reykjavik” from Season 1 :clap3: legends ONLY!

Congratulations @Remmy! It was beyond obvious from the reviews you were headed for the top spot, but wow at that score! Almost a perfect 10—and honestly it should have been, it really was a Christmas miracle of writing. :heart: So happy for you! Let me know what you'd like on your winner's token and I'll make it for you ASAP (I have a few days off coming into the new year).

@Aurora with “Gingerbread Man”!

 

This song becomes your Golden Hit debut… who knows when or if it may be followed in the future :eli:

A cute top five hit, I'll take it! I was honestly forecasting a #3-#5 peak based purely on the reviews—and won't lie I'm a little bummed at scoring below an 8—but I guess the world isn't ready for the Christsmut genre takeover just yet... maybe it was too ahead of its time for certain people. :cookie:

 

Some stats: "Gingerbread Man" becomes my 36th highest scored song submitted for an ATRL writing tournament out of 81, outscoring 55.55% of my other songs. It outscored my other Christmas offering, "Alone at Christmastime", which debuted at #1 with a score of 7.5 back in December 2016. "Alone" now ranks at 45th on the Aurora All Time Chart™️, tied with three other songs: 2015's "A Devil Always Wins", 2019's "Imagination", and 2021's "Into My Sea".

 

I had so much fun writing this song and it was oddly therapeutic for me to get some of that energy out of my system, so I'm grateful for the experience to participate again after a few seasons of judging. Speaking of judging...

I'd definitely still be intrigued to hear your thoughts on "Alone at Christmastime, Pt. II". :eli:

Thank you :kiss::kiss: And no way, I feel like even the 9.83 is a little generous :fan: But I'll certainly take it

 

I'd love another one honestly :celestial4: The two I've received are Gaga and Monty Mole, right? If so then I'd be down for a Taylor Swift coin so my other fave gets her shine. Maybe with a picture from one of the past 3 eras. :mandown:
