Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Results

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Results The winner is... I Hope You're Happy Now. I am genuinely surprised that this won, but it's not too unbelievable considering that it is much more upbeat and entertaining than the slow and brooding I Want You. This has been another great survivor. Our first survi...

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Final Round

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Final Round Blue Chair is out. Fun fact about this song: When Elvis was making the single version of this song, he was inspired by the pop music Prince was making at the time. This is a great song, but the remaining songs are really strong. The remaining two songs are ...

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Round 9

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Round 9 Crimes of Paris is out. This is a really nice pop song featuring his then wife and Pogues member Cait O'Riordan on backing vocals. In my opinion, it is weaker than the remaining songs, so I can see why it was voted out. VOTE A SONG OUT HERE https://strawpoll.co...

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Round 6 Uncomplicated is out. I was not expecting to see the side A songs be voted out so soon.

Blood and Chocolate Survivor - Round 5 Tokyo Storm Warning is out. This is probably the most disappointed and surprised I've been at the results for a Survivor poll.
