This is a challenge, where the answers will aim to, together, output the lyrics to this beloved 80s song.

This is the full lyrics of the song, line by line. The first answer will contain a program that will output the first line of the song (We're no strangers to love). The second will do the same, but for the second line (You know the rules and so do I) and so on. Some answers (the 7th, 14th, 22nd, 29th, 36th, 45th, 51st, 54th, 61st and 68th) will output a blank line.

Each answers' program, however, must be irreducible, meaning that it must not output the correct line if any non-zero number of characters (not necessarily consecutive) are removed.

  • print("We're no strangers to love") is an irreducible Answer 1 in Python 3
  • if 1: print("We're no strangers to love") is not, as we can remove if 1: and it'll still output the first line
  • print("We're no str" + "angers t" + "o love") is also not, as the two " + "s can be removed, and it'll still produce the correct output.

Let \$\bar x_i\$ be the arithmetic mean of the lengths of the first \$i\$ lines, to 1 decimal place. This sequence begins \$26, 28, 32, 34, 34.6, 33\$ and converges to \$\bar x_{74} = 24.3\$ by the end of the song. Each answer has a score, which will eventually determine the overall winner. The score for the \$i\$th answer is defined as:

If the \$i\$th answer is \$n\$ bytes long, its score is \$|n - \bar x_i|\$

So, if the first answer is 10 bytes long, its score is \$16\$, and if the 72nd answer is 2 bytes long, its score is \$|2 - 24.2| = 22.2\$. A user's overall score is the arithmetic mean of the scores of all their answers. The user with the lowest overall score wins.

The full sequence of \$\bar x_i\$; the left column is \$i\$, the right is \$\bar x_i\$. Collapse the "Arguments" element for easier viewing.


Rules

  • You may either:

    • Output the line to STDOUT, or your language's closest alternative; or,
    • Return the line from a function
  • You should take no input, aside from an optional empty input

  • Each language may only be used once. This includes different versions of a language, such as Python 2 and Python 3. Generally, if two languages are considered versions of each other, such as Seriously and Actually, then only one is allowed to be used.

  • You may not post 2 answers in a row

  • You must wait 1 hour between answers

  • The challenge will end when the 74th answer is posted, at which point I will accept an answer of the winner's choice


Please format your answer as the following:

# [Num]. [Lang], score [score]

    \$\begingroup\$ @Makonede It's actually kind of intentional. Husk's compressed strings are designed in a way to use similar characters as much as possible (e.g., "Hello, world!" is H◄⁰,ω]!, where is left, looks like o, ω looks like w, and ] looks like D) \$\endgroup\$ – Leo May 12 at 3:03

I am new to Subleq so hopefully this is right. The first line changes the 3 in address 5 to -1 which makes the second line exit producing no output. Deleting a word causes an infinite loop. For example, 0 0 0 goes to 0.

Here goes a suboptimal language choice, as it can't win against those zero scores anyway.

It is hard to reuse a number in Labyrinth (except for adjacent ones) because each digit command alters the current top of the stack, rather than pushing a new number.

Somehow the compressor is very nice and fits my need, exactly 28 bytes of string while compressed and adding a leading backtick to decompress gives 29 bytes, then leading to a nice optimal score

Though I think the HTML trick was better

If you do it it's not PHP anymore, but Text.. the rules are borderline here because we usually allow the PHP tag to be omitted from count except when it's <?= because it stands for echo.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @xigoi I don't really see the point here, you can type anything in a HTML page but only what you type inside <script> tags is Javascript, and this doesn't make plain text or HTML answers valid Javascript answers.. The rules can be a bit blurry for PHP, but all the debates I've seen revolve around ignoring the <?php in the byte count, not that everything ouside the tags is PHP too (see my previous comment about -r mode). Anyway that's how I interpret the rules and craft my answers, the others can do differently, I don't downvote plain text PHP answers or raise debates there.. \$\endgroup\$ – Kaddath May 17 at 9:14
