A tune for June (song tourney)

Tools    





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 -
list here  


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 plenty early so no excuses not 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 June 1st - nominations accepted up to that point.



That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again
but but BUT....
It's not even the 2.... eh. oh, alright.

So I'll start with the following nom for an EXCELLENT start to the mernth of Jerrrrrn. I caught this during my current Dragon Ball Super binge. We're just out of the Goku Black saga and this song caught (OMG there's a nice breakdown at around 2:20 in lol, sorry, listening now as I type this) my attention as the end credits were rolling. My version is english dub, and those lyrics are heavily modified for DB references, but this version came up in a search and as far as I can tell have NOTHING to do with the show. That's cool though, cuz rarely is anything more entertaining than watching adorably hyper kids jacked up on methamphetamines and noodle carbs swinging their arms wildly in choreographed squat dances that would send most americans into cardiac arrest.

So. Without further ado, I present to you, my possible anime-themed ...theme (?) for the month of Jerrrrrrrn, "The Yoka Yoka Dance! Yoka yoka dance! Yoka yoka, yoka yoka, yoka-yoka-DANCE!"

"E'dybody c'dap yolrd 'ands!? PA-PA-PAN!"

Maybe I put this up a little early as it seems like an age of waiting lol. Oh well, only another two and a half days or so to go.....



I'm not sure how busy I'm going to be this month and was thinking of missing a round or two early on, but I heard this yesterday and just love it and want to get it out there. So I'm in.
