I understood there will still be a free YouTube but also a version you need to pay for. The issue is that they will remove videos of artists whose labels don't have a contract with them.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Eight – 2014

Just sent my song. Found at least one song from 2014 that didn't annoy me. Actually the entire album was pretty good, had to choose between two songs, neither of which was the lead single.

Liked the song since the first time I heard it, it's really a great song in my opinion. At least there's one artist whose recent releases haven't been a disappointment, I haven't particularly liked some of the 2014 releases of my favourites.

But, no matter as great as I find the song, I know it's not the type that succeeds at TF. Will hardly make past semis, top 10 in the final is out of reach. But hopefully at least somebody will like it.

Youtube have gone really bad in the past years. Basically because of being owned by Google. I can't stand anything Google does.

Is the carpet comfortable?

Google started off well and with good intentions. But one of the problems in this capitalist world in which we live is that if you make money, it doesn't take long before you are expected to make more money. And more. And more. Eventually, as you get bigger and bigger the need to keep getting bigger and bigger and to make more and more money grows and grows until it gets out of control and all semblance of integrity and ideals goes completely out the window. That in a nutshell is the story of Google.

I'm listening to my selection a ton, and I'm more convinced it's a good one .

I have a feeling the repeated artist situation in game 27 will repeat itself here. Hope not though.

It could be that the best song of 2014 according to some has already been entered in an earlier contest

Yeah, I entered 'Clean Bandit - Rather Be' ages ago and it flopped hard

Sent. Hope it isn't taken already.

What is its nature? He covets. That is his nature. And how do we begin to covet? We begin by coveting what we see every day.
And don't your eyes seek out the things you want?

I can't trust you anymore

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Eight – 2014

Can I be a terrible pain in the ass for a second: I do not get why people are allowed to send in songs from 2013 that are on an album that is released in 2014. Often one or two singles are released months before an actual album will reach the stores, just to get people excited... Since this is a song contest, it should be about songs not about albums and I feel like a song that is released in 2013 is a 2013 song and should not be in a 2014 song contest...

You tell me I'm exceptional and I promise to exploit you.

It's the previous game's winner prerogative to set up the rules he wants for his category

so if David says it's OK, then it's OK

(and tbh It broadens a bit the possibilities, otherwise we're stuck with only 5 months in 2014 during which most of the released songs were either realesed elsewhere or on an album some time in 2013...)

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
