The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 25 - Congrats to our winner Marcus1979

The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Five – Open Category
(based on an original idea by sfar)








OK here we go with Game Number Twenty-Five - The game is very easy to play:

1. Send me a PM with any song - along with the You Tube link if possible.


2. When the deadline is over, I'll post all the songs in the thread (without the name of the user who sent it) for everyone to vote.

3. The song that gets the most points wins the game. In the event of a tie the song with the most 12 points will win, if that number is the same then it's the most 10 and so on.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game Game Twenty-Five Open Category

Some games ago, I semi-retired from open categories. I felt weekly TSG's are too much and I'd play only some interesting categories plus open ones only when I really want to post a certain song and don't want to wait for a suitable category. Well, this will be the 2nd open edition after that and my 2nd participation. This time my song will be one of the closest to my true music taste.

A proud fan of

In for this one. I have so many songs I want to choose though.

In! I'm taking a risk here but I've been committed to sending it to an open game for a little while.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.
