BSG#49: Negative Songs || Rodger the Doge wins with "Grey Skies" by Turquoise Days

(an Original idea by sfar.)


Welcome to the MTF Best Song Game!

49th Edition : Negative Songs




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 #49 is "Negative Songs" - songs dealing with sadness, heartbreak, anger, destruction, death, envy, war, hate etc.
Any genre is allowed, as long as the lyrics, if present, deal with some negative experience or emotion.
chosen by Fatima



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.

avant-hag is hosting?

My god! I must be careful not to do my "submit crap song, then send last minte PM asking to change it to something better" routine. Can't expose myself to an inferior equal.

Re: BSG#49: Theme TBD

Thank you. The theme will be "Negative" or "Negative songs"... or whatever, someone more gifted with words can come up with a better name.

Can we have clarification from the manager that lyrical content definitely counts? Don't want to be scolded via PM

I'd say it does, but it's up to @Fatima to decide.

Also, I'm setting the submission deadline to Sunday, 8PM CEST.

what do you mean - the lyrics? Most definitely they count - the lyrics, if present, have to be about some negative experience or emotion. A pop or soul song about heartbreak is allowed. It doesn't have to be super depressing, although I know some will go down that road.

Can citizen_insane copy this somewhere into the OP?

Any genre is allowed, as long as the lyrics, if present, deal with some negative experience or emotion.
EDIT: Sorry, I didn't see the guidelines are already there.

OK, that makes sense Thought there might be a grey line over songs with negative lyrics but an 'upbeat' atmosphere.

Lyrics have priority in this theme. The 'upbeat atmosphere' is too subjective.

Simon and Garfunkel 'Sound of Silence'

No, really. It's scary in retrospect because they sing it so well.
