The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 9 - Congrats to our winner ^bibi^

The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Nine
(based on an original idea by sfar)









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

1. Send me a PM with any song that you like, old or new (Artist and Song name).- with a You Tube link if possible – but not a problem if not.

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 one that gets more 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.

I had a song selected for this, but now the decent YouTube version of that song has been removed again. Going for another one then. Fortunately I have a list of potential songs.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 9 - Nominate Your Songs

let's try to find a good song, there's no theme this time that will make things harder, there are sooo many songs i'd like to nominate

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.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 9 - Nominate Your Songs

I thought I was ready, but not I'm not sure if I'm going to try what I first thought of? I can't believe the list of songs that have already been used Truly if any one deserves to win a Snake it is me, but there is just too much good competition in these games!

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 9 - Nominate Your Songs

I'm in

Will have to consider my entry. I have one song I'm going to nominate eventually, but I'm kind of saving that in case we get a specific category, as it's my only real favourite in that category.

I also have several songs I'd like to nominate that just can't be found on youtube

But I'm sure I'll find something
