The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 63 -Songs Of Tough Life/Death-Congrats Slazorin



Game Sixty-Three : Songs Of Tough Life and Death


(based on an original idea by sfar)





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

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

Quote:

Since people complained the theme was too broad, I narrowed it by eliminating the easy part

The new theme is "Songs of tough life and death"

Songs about death, loss, revenge, injustice. Please focus on lyrics or general mood / emotion in the song.


initially planned to send something else, but actually i had a very fitting song on my short list For the "animals" theme I would send a System of a Down song
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.



For those who haven’t played before – here’s a link to all previous games which are housed at the TF Pick The Best Song Game Forum to see how it works :-

My song will be so easy to identify (you will know why) but this song HIT me. All the emotions just came so easily.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 63 - Songs Of Tough Life and Death - Nomina

There's one pretty obvious pick to me, I'm going to wait a week and submit it with a back-up to see if someone else doesn't also agree with it.

EDIT: Changed my mind, and decided to just go with this one song. Maybe not as bleak as all the parameters given in the descriptor, but I still think it fits.
