I'm in. Very hard choice, and desperately resisting the urge to pick something by Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd or any of the other more obvious choices.

the original pink color in combination with the smaller font size might have been blocked by your system.

Anyway, in this particular theme it may be harder to not send very well known songs, because very few of us (if not any) were borned listening to these songs, so what we usually know are the classics, and the classics... well... they are universally known.

(not in rant mood today/sunday. the bolded sections mainly in order to separate a text, that, oh well, got a bit long at the end.)


slight inequalities among the contestants are the spice of every competition.
(imagine David Ferrer stood 9 feet tall or everybody had Nadal's stamina + biceps and could produce heavy topspin over 5 sets...)

if you dont have sound knowledge of the 70s, then your chances of winning the contest are reduced of course - and in a way rightfully so.
even if "Stairway to heaven" was the only song you know from the 70s, by submitting it you would still mainly just benefit from the "loophole" in the form of the amateurish jury situation, we unintentionally generate.
am i too harsh? people here always seem to yearningly await the revelation of the votes / the final showdown. and then the results turn out to be "never in doubt" more or less. for how long will that remain exciting for us?

note that i didnt criticise the entry song choices of the contestants in the first place, but the voting behavior.
true, that in turn means you would think twice now before submitting "Stairway to heaven",
but that slight inconvenience for the individual is for the good of the whole game.

in other words, everybody shall be free to submit the songs they want, i just hope the terms of reward will change.



...of course, in case you discovered music (as such) only recently or you are say from China and "Stairway to heaven" is genuinely new to you, then you might give it 12 points. no problem!
generally i dont intend to put sort of moral pressure on people here, and there are exceptions possible in various regards.
its rather the thing that to the vast majority of cases most of what i say might apply.

everybody just keep in mind the benefit(/sense) of the game and see what you can do (->i.e. my zero-points suggestion). that would be fine already.


...so feel free to submit f.i.:
UriahHeep - Lady in black
Simon+Garfunkel - Bridge over troubled water (and El Condor pasa)
George Harrison - My sweet lord
T.Jacks - Seasons in the sun
Gary Moore - Parisienne walkways
LedZeppelin - Kashmir
and most of Queen, DeepPurple, PinkFloyd, the Doors and the RollingStones.


i will give you zero points then most likely , but maybe other people who dont know these songs/bands (or who just submit but barely care about the voting part) will give you more.
on the other hand, there may very well be also some 70s "classics" out there that i've never heard in my life (i'm not a music freak at all) and make me gladly hand many points to them.
thats the game.


...let me end with some tip:
there are many 70s classics that sound quite old (grandpa Rock) for modern ears (Nazareth - This flight tonight f.i.).
on the other hand there are also 70s tracks of rather modern or timeless sound, that were not so extremely successful/famous back then, but would possibly perform reasonably well nowadays. go smell them out and fetch me them!

Sent finally. Hardest decision ever .

And I refuse to give zero points to songs I know well . So vote-whores, if I like the song it doesn't matter for me how well-known it is.

Vote-whoring might backfire for me as I may not like the song however, it should be said.

If we all give zero points to all the classics then is possible to have another victory for Joy Division here. Boring...

Spirit's "Taurus" is better anyway . But released in '69 I think so ineligable.

That song actually deserves a 0 on merits, not just because it's been overplayed to death.

just remembered Blood on the Tracks and Born to Run, should've spent more time considering

certainly I won't give full points to obvious ones but lesser known songs from big artists I love hearing so hopefully a few of those come up

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...
