Best Song Game #44 - Drug Music | Congrats yellow grass with Gong "Master Builder"

(an Original idea by sfar.)


Welcome to the MTF Best Song Game!

44th Edition : Drug Music





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 #44 is "Drug Theme"

Semi-open theme in which you are asked to send a song that you think would work best when drugged, or, to make it simpler if you have no idea how psychotropic drugs can work up on you (and don't do drugs, people, please - just use your imagination here), a song that you feel would sound even better under the influence because your mind is open to things your "normal" self won't allow you to enjoy. The songs can have in their titles or in the lyrics references to drugs but that is not mandatory at all.
The description of the theme is left purposedly vague because the goal is to see and hear each player's interpretation of "drug music." Ideally, you should privilege "psy" kind of songs, but if you really don't find anything of that sort, you can go with songs like Winehouse's "Rehab", for instance, which are literally about drugs and not very "psy," musically. However, you would be hard pressed to find a Céline Dion song that could fit such a description; in such a case, the manager will probably play his/her role and will refuse your entry. None of her songs are "psy inducing" or have anything to do with drugs, in any way, as far as it is known.

All in all, when picking your song, just imagine what "drug music" sounds like in our collective consciousness/culture.
And, please, write an explaination in your PM to the manager when you send your picked song as to why you think it fits the theme, it will help the manager and us too, listeners, to understand your choice.



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.

I look forward to making my debut! Is it ok to send our nominated song via a different format if it isn't on YouTube?

I considered it in the past since some artists don't have their songs on Youtube, but then didn't go through with it because it's too complicated as the playlists are made on YT. Also, as already pointed out, unless you ask the manager of the edition directly and not in the thread, it would be obvious which song is yours.

If the song is obscure enough I suppose I could upload to YT myself?

Translation of all this: AP wants psy trance, not rock or rap songs talking about drugs.

The theme description is very biased against cocaine, speed and crystal meth

There are three major classes of psychotropic agents: stimulants, hallucinogens (like LSD and shrooms) and depressants. I find these helpful in meditation sometimes. I also think all of these could fit the theme described. If you're short of ideas, regarding ecstasy (a stimulant), I think any Bollywood song would do .

However my favourite one is love. After all they say love is the drug...
