BSG #48: Songs from 2016 || Fatima wins with Adieu Au Dancefloor!!!

(an Original idea by sfar.)


Welcome to the MTF Best Song Game!

48th Edition : Songs from 2016


How to play?

Phase I: Anyone can commit to the game by sending me a YouTube link of your chosen song via PM. Please include the title "BSG song choice" for easy reference. 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 titled "BSG SF votes" or "BSG F votes"
<29 songs: Direct Final.
29-40 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 #48 is "Songs from 2016"
chosen by TheBigFourFTW. You must submit any track (via YouTube) as long as the track selected was released in 2016. No live performances of previously released songs unless the live performance got its own release as live.



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 MAY 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.

Okay, let me have them, people. Also, rules might change once I look over them more thoroughly and the theme might change once TB4FTW replies to my PM.

What about the scoring system? I'm willing to try something new if the right amount of people participate/if enough people want it.

Preliminary deadline for sending songs is next Saturday, the 15th.

I guess inevitable we got the 2016 theme.

I wish my best song from 2016 was available on YT. But it isn't. Will find something else.

Does submitting a Brazilian song mean guaranteed points from ilovetheblues and Sicario?

since i'm very busy and also Easter is coming and i'll be away, thanks in advance for points to: acacacademy (oh wait he won't vote. But maybe at least he'd jump to say hi and say my song would be his 12 or smth) CK, scarecrows, afterglows, Droog (I guess?) and possibly also c_i

i got correctly a place for my song in the previous edition, i said 3-5 and came 4th

Maybe I am gunning for a top spot. But it depends the most on other players.

Titles
Singles: Leon, Little Rock, Ortisei, Ilkley
Doubles: Tiburon w/Garlichead, Bordeaux w/njnetswill, Aptos w/Rumpas, Ilkley w/Le Luka Erceg Kaohsiung w/lazar.

I just won on TF with a 2016 song so feeling pretty good already, though I wish I didn't have to boot Markus out of the top spot there. Almost lost to Rihanna and Timbaland, and some of them even voted for all 3 Rihanna songs in the final and in their top 5 too. Hilariously the trio of Rihanna, Solange and Sade were the leading 3 songs for a while.

@Squarepusher hope your theme turned out alright in the end
maybe join us for this theme here if you can

@Ponas Donny

typo here:

Quote:
1. The theme of Game #47 is "Songs from 2016"
chosen by TheBigFourFTW. You must submit any track (via YouTube) as long as the track selected was released in 2015. No live performances of previously released songs unless the live performance got its own release as live.
