MTF BSG 6


Welcome to The MTF Best Song Game #7!
Theme: Female Vocalists
*An original idea by sfar
** Theme selected by tripwires

Anyone can participate.

How to play?
Phase I: Commit to the game by sending me a YouTube link of your song via PM.
After this phase, I will give a list of songs and players, without revealing which songs was selected by whom.
Phase II: Vote for your favourite songs by PM.
<29 songs: Direct Final.
30-40 songs: 2 Semi-Finals followed by a Final containing the 20 songs with the most points.
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. Your song must follow the theme of the game. For Game #7: Any song with female vocals (yes, it can be Nicki Minaj and Spice Girls too) is valid
1. You have to vote for exactly 10 songs, in order of preference. Your voted songs will receive points in the following format (inspired by the Eurovision system):
Code:
12 points: favourite song
10 points: 2nd favourite song
08 points: 3rd favourite song
07 points: 4th favourite song
06 points: ...
05 points: ...
04 points: ...
03 points: ...
02 points: ...
01 points: 10th favourite song
2. You can not vote for your own song.
3. 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, see Post #3. The same song by a different artist/band is allowed.
4. Only committed players can vote. Eliminated semifinalist can also vote in the Final.
5. If you do not vote, your song will receive a 12 point penalty (in the part of phase II which you did not vote).
6. If the same song(including artist/band) is sent by 2+ different players, the 2nd+ player to send will be asked to chose another one.
7. You can not change votes or your song once they have been sent.
8. If the manager is playing the game, he/she will have to send his votes to another player.

There will be a musically themed interview via PM, which will be revealed after the Final.

The theme of the next game will be selected by the winner. (No theme is also allowed)

Song sent.

I had a lot (and I mean it!) of possibilities. I trimmed the list to 8-9 songs, but I eventually sent the one that struck me as the best option in the moment, for various reasons.

Eh, maybe just this once. ^_^

I will send song soon. Im gonna be mostly afk, count my votes for both SF and F.
I'm sure you can send votes for the final long before it happens if you just send all the songs in prioritized order. The best ten remaining ones from the top will get the points.

Re: MTF BSG #7 Female Vocalists - nominate till the end of the week

(from Game 6 thread)
I meant female vocalists in general, so can be solo artist or female singer(s) in a band. To keep to the theme I'd say yes, bands with both sexes singing are out. :D
The band can have male members, but none of the singers should be male. Instrumentals are obviously out.



Another discussion which was brought up in the last game:

Theme compliance is the participants duty and NOT the managers. If a non-complying song slips through to the game, and that is pointed out, the manager has the right to disqualify it from the game. Whether or not Nathii is too nice to do something like that is beside the point.

Re: MTF BSG #7 Female Vocalists - nominate till the end of the week

tina probably wouldnt get votes on hipster mtf but damn she was good

Tina would get high points from me. But, as afterglows would tell you, that guarantees that it would do badly.

I'm in of course. No idea what I will send yet, but quite certain that whatever I decide, it will go back to my crashing and burning ways.

choice of artist is easy, though I doubt I will be the only one, song on the other hand may take a while...

nothing wrong with Tina :yeah:

Sent!

I need to send earlier, otherwise I may forget, like in the 4th and 6th editions. :lol:


PS This song is obviously not the one I've send. It's Alanis Morissette early is his career, making a special appereance on an early 90's movie. :cool:

Thanks :)

Yeah I think I'm too nice... But I'll listen to all songs before publishing just in case, so we don't have this problem ;)

The song I'm sending won't get any points from you, but I'll try to live with that.
