1st Edition | 2nd Edition
Welcome to The MTF Best Song Game #3!
Theme: Covers
*An original idea by sfar
** Theme selected by Sham Kay

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 #3: Covers includes any song that isn't the official original. You can even submit a song sung by yourself, studio version is not necessary. Instrumental songs are also allowed as long as it is a cover.
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)

Strategies are welcome. All forms of drama including but not limited to insulting, fighting, bickering, bitching, vSlapping, vPunching, repping, and selling your soul to the devil manager for votes is strongly encouraged.

Maybe it would be a good idea to put also the link to the original song when the songs are listed for voting

My thoughts.


Also, it's important to know: the covers must be studio versions or live versions are also allowed?
And what about traditional songs? Could they be considered as covers?

Anything and everything that is a cover is allowed. OP updated to reflect this. So, each of the following is allowed
1. MalvinLuisandy covers :aplot:
2. Anything by Beethoven/Vivaldi or other classical artists where the original is not available.
3. Traditional songs, as long as it is not the original.
4. Songs sung by you, as long as it is not the original.

Maybe it would be a good idea to put also the link to the original song when the songs are listed for voting
Let others weigh in on this.

I'm inclined to say yes, however it may result in voting for the original instead of the cover.

Gotta agree with this, would be cool to compare the cover to the original. I personally tend to dislike covers that are too similar to the original since I'm looking for a unique twist to the original song. So a link to the original is a good idea. Then again, we could just search for the original ourselves, so it's unlikely to affect voting all that much.

~ 1 week. April 30th. However, if enough songs are received, we will start earlier(a day or two's notice will be given if this is done).


Edit: 3 songs already received. First one was even before I made the thread.

People who are sending, should at least write the original artist in the PM, to proove that it's actually a cover and that there is a original. I know I did. Just sent.

good points, both.

this.
participants should be required to provide a source of the original at least, but it wont be made "public".
otherwise i could submit any strange song and the manager would then have to search.

...if voters wish to compare a song with the original, they can look it up theirselves.

Yup, it seems right to mention the original singer(s)/band without revealing it in the thread.

After a German song here and at TF, people might identify me if I choose either of these:



Actually, the latter one is by some Finnish students.

I'd ditto to "Hallelujah".
