BSG #29 - [1967-1974] - Congratulations miura88!

(an Original idea by sfar.)


Welcome to the MTF Best Song Game!

29th Edition : Music of 67-74





How to play?

Phase I: Anyone can commit to the game by sending me a YouTube link of your chosen song via PM. The song must follow the theme rule as proposed below.
After this phase, I will reveal the lists of songs and players, without revealing which song was selected by whom.
Phase II: Vote for your favourite songs via PM.
<29 songs: Direct Final.
30-40 songs: Semi-Finals, followed by a Final containing 20 SF songs.
After (each part of) this phase, I will reveal the votes, the points tally, and the player behind each song. After the SF, only the eliminated songs will be revealed.

The song with the most points wins!




Rules:

0. Anyone can participate

1. The theme of Game #29 is "Music of 1967-1974"

- singles released in 1967-74 from albums released in 1966 are allowed

- live performances recorded before 1967 count if they were first released in that time period as well

- classical music counts if the piece was first recorded and released between 1967 and 1974 (doesn't matter when it was actually composed)

- music recorded between 1967 and 1973 but released after 1974 is allowed

- music recorded in 1974 only counts if it was released in 1974 as well


2. You have to vote for exactly 10 songs, in order of preference for each semifinal (i.e. 10 songs from SF1 and 10 from SF2). Your voted songs will receive points in the following format (inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest's voting system):
Code:
12 points: favourite song
10 points: 2nd favourite song
 8 points: 3rd favourite song
 7 points: 4th favourite song
 6 points: ...
 5 points: ...
 4 points: ...
 3 points: ...
 2 points: ...
  1 point: 10th favourite song
3. You can not vote for your own song.

4. You can not send a song selected in a previous game. One of the purposes of this game is to discover new music. For a list of these previously selected songs, check Post #4. The same song by a different artist/band is allowed.

5. Only committed players can vote. Eliminated semifinalists can also vote in the Final.

6. If you do not vote, your song will receive a 12 point penalty (in the phase in which you did not vote).

7. If the same song is sent by 2+ different players, the 2nd+ player who sent it will be asked to choose another one.

8. You can change your submitted song only once. But you can't change your votes!

9. If the manager is playing the game, he/she can send his votes to another player (so the latter can check if what is presented in the ceremony(-ies) matches with the votes sent via PM).


Other informations:

1. There will be a musically themed interview via PM, which will be sent after the Semifinal ceremony. The answers to it will be revealed during the Final ceremony.

2. The theme (if wanted) of the next game will be selected by the winner of the current game.

Quite bad theme for me. That's quite far from my generation. I'm not even sure I listened to a song from that period. I wish this theme included 1977 at least. Shame.

I can't believe it. I'm sure you must not believe it either.

Yeah I think I exaggerated there. I probably did but without realizing that those song are from that period. I'm listening to songs from that period atm. In hope of playing this game.

Too many great options for this theme. (Even though it's a lazy theme to choose. )

Please that it is each person's duty (and NOT the managers) to check your song for theme compliance and that it has not been submitted previously.

Thanks but I can't access the page somehow. I registered there but do I have to install the DropBox too to see the list?

That link doesn't seem to work, it just takes me to Dropbox. This one (from a previous edition thread) works for me:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mf8qlhkot9...tted.xlsx?dl=0

Good thing I checked it, was one of my initial thoughts (though probably not what I'd actually send) was on it

Shouldn't it be the duty of both? The manager must check it otherwise a previously submitted song can go through.
