The MTF BSG #5 - Congratulations to scarecrows ! [ Arab Strap - "Girls of Summer" ]

(an Original idea by sfar.)
Welcome to the MTF Best Song game!
(5th Edition)​




Anyone can participate.

How to play?

Phase I: Anyone can 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:
1. Your song must follow the theme of the game. For Game #5: 1990s includes any song that was released between 1st Jan 1990 and 31st Dec 1999. Check the release dates before sending me the link to the song.
2. 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
 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, see Post #3. The same song by a different artist/band is allowed.
5. Only committed players can vote. Eliminated semifinalist can also vote in the Final.
6. If you do not vote, your song will receive a 12 point penalty (in the part of phase in which you did not vote).
7. If the same song is sent by 2+ different players, the 2nd+ player to send will be asked to chose another one.
8. You can change your song only once. You can't change your votes.
9. If the manager is playing the game, he/she will have to send his votes to another player.

Other informations:
1. There will be a musically themed interview via PM, which will be revealed after the Final.
2. The theme (if wanted) of the next game will be selected by the winner.

Should send smells like teen spirit really quick before it is taken
Send it quick and then change a couple of days later, that way it will be unavailable when everyone else tries to take it ;)

I absolutely love the 90's, but then it also brings a problem of choosing the best song as I love so many of them, and all for different reasons.

pretty much same here

except in the first case someone may send from the same artist,

in second i have an indie song that would probably make top 5

and then i have 2 songs that could be hard to stomach... one is totally unknown so last place guaranteed (well, you'd probably know it's my song :D and i think i could name 2-3 members who'd actually vote for it) the other may get a few votes though not enough for the final

Reminding myself of some of the songs, I figured it would be fun to have "guilty pleasure" as the next theme :dance:

I'm having a very hard time chosing a song, this time.

Too many choices in my arsenal.

What if you don't have any? All my pleasures are guilt-free.

Me winning is too unlikely for me to contemplate which category I'd choose. I'm sure I'd be able to think of something on short notice.
