A Song For September


Same as was done in previous tournaments of this type.....
  • Join in and drop out as you please
  • No set number of nominations, nominate on the fly
  • Max song duration: 10 minutes
  • No individual matches means no random or host 'fixing' the matches
  • Only one nomination per person per 'round'
  • Only those with songs nominated in any 'round' are eligible to vote; except the 'Final' where all those that have previously nominated a song in the month may vote should they wish

Every couple of days will be a new 'round' where any and all newly nominated songs are up against each other. As soon as voting starts for one 'round' nominations will be accepted for the next 'round'.

Players vote by ranking all the songs in that 'round' from 1 (their favourite) to n (their least favourite). Songs will be awarded points based on their positional ranking in each vote (number of points will depend on the number of songs contesting the 'round' - if 10 songs #1 song would get 10 points, #10 song would get 1 point).

The winning song from each 'round' (or songs in the case of a tie) goes through to the 'Final' at the end of the month.

Songs that made it to previous 'finals' are ineligible -

Nominations need to be freely available to all participants, YouTube is most commonly used but any freely available and legal source is acceptable. Sometimes YouTube videos can be geo-blocked so where necessary an alternative link for those who might need it may be required. You can check if/where any YouTube vid has been geo-blocked via this website (link kindly provided by Torgo).

Simples but if any relevant questions just ask.

terrible, 0/5, not enough puppies.

Up early again so people can prep noms to play if interested. Assuming there's enough want to play (minimum reqd is 6 players) ROUND 1 will open for voting at 9 a.m. BST on September 1st - nominations accepted up to that point.

All my noms for this one will be song titles that are also film titles. No idea why, it's certainly not a requirement for anyone to do so - I just felt like being somewhat themed this time.

My R1 nom:

Not starring: Bob De Niro on vocals, Dakota Fanning on bass and Famke Janssen on drums...
13th Chime - Hide And Seek

Let's do (or at least start) one of these again. I have quite a few songs in mind (most will be hated by others, as usual). I'll start with something I very recently discovered and which shouldn't scare anyone away.

Twinkle - Terry

I can't tell atm if life is going to be plain sailing with me being able to participate in most rounds or completely chaotic and I'll miss the whole thing. But as this tournament suits that kind of thing, I'll put up a song for round 1 and hope for the best.

Lauran Hibberd – I'm Insecure
5-time MoFo Award winner.

Ah, thanks for tagging me.

Round 1 nomination:
Peter Tosh - Stepping Razor

Let the night air cool you off
I'd nominate something, but I'm currently having a brain melt where I can't remember how to make a link out of a URL.
Click on the quote button on one of the posts that has a link and look at it in the little reply box.

How are you posting the link with different text? My editor doesn't seem to allow it.
A hundred percent death proof.
