    Inverse Dead Pool 2018

    I've not necessarily thought this through but it makes sense off the top of my head: how about giving the win to whoever had the last "hit" (presumably this would be whichever of the tied players was most recently winning/closest to winning), on the basis that picking someone who dies later in the year is, arguably, a better bad pick than someone who dies earlier in the year? If Player 1 gets one hit in December, and Player 2 gets one hit in February, then in lieu of any other information, I'd say Player 1 was the "better" player. Someone who dies just short of the finishing line was at least close to being a good pick. If they had the same last hit, then second last, third last, fourth last etc. If both teams have the exact same hits (including if both teams manage to get 0), then whoever submitted their team first (or more specifically, whoever finalised their team first, after accounting for mistakes and duplicates or whatever).

    A surprise hit for my Derby Dead Pool "#1 Hits" theme team. I resented "having" to include him, because as the oldest living male UK #1 hitmaker, he was on there effectively by default regardless of his health. I expected him to outlive most of his 19 teammates. I believe the oldest living male #1 hitmaker is now Tony Bennett, who I intend to start resenting from 2019 onwards.

    This is not a game that incentivises risk-taking. I just figured McCain had months to go when people seemed to think he was imminent in January, and took a chance on him scraping 2019 to look like the forum psychic.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2018

    The people on my Derby Dead Pool team of #1 hitmakers who are also on my Inverse Dead Pool team – the ones who weren't properly imminent but were at least theme-team mortal – are Doris Day, Vera Lynn, and Olivia Newton-John. But, wisely, not Aretha Franklin. (Or Chris Rea, for that matter, who I maintain has been dead since 2017 and it's just that nobody's bothered to phone his agent and check.) I'm currently 7th place. 5 of the 6 teams above me have Aretha. I like this thread now.

    He'll probably funk a bit after he dies too

    The Dead of 2018

    Very considerate of him. Unique hit for my #1 Hits Derby Dead Pool team. I was so confused the first time I heard that song and did a Google Image search on him. The dweebiest male vocal in music history was somehow recorded by what looks like a retired 1980s WWE star.

    Next Music Shock Death!

    Which of his 20-odd UK top 40 singles was his "one hit"? Avicii was responsible for at least two of the defining sounds of 2010s pop ("everything trying to sound like 'Levels'" and "everything trying to sound like 'Wake Me Up'"). He's hardly Rednex. (Rednex were better, but that's not the point.)

    5 or 6 years past his chart peak, to be fair – he was already naff enough in 2014 that he was producing for Coldplay. By 2015 he was getting cut from a Madonna album. Only finding out now he had a #4 hit last year, though, featuring Rita Ora. It's always 2012 somewhere.

    Derby Dead Pool 2018

    I'd have had 4 hits instead of 1 by now if I'd just stuck with last year's team. 2018 is proving to be a bad year for 2017.

    Changing the picture without changing the bio was the best possible outcome here, and I hope it stays like that.
