Film Noir is a cinema art style focused a lot on darkness and shadows popularised in the 1940s. Modern elements of the genre are considered neo-noir. Common themes of noir involve: crime, gangs, the hardboiled police detective, personal quests fir revenge, heroes with demons, loneliness, persistent rain, smokiness/haziness, the femme fatale (attractive, but dangerous woman). Unlike in Westerns where justice tends to prevail, in noir, chaos and feelings of uncertainty are conveyed. The good guys rarely win, or the win isn't that clearcut and comes at a cost (actually kind of like the difference between CSI vs Law and Order ).

Batman, Bladerunner, The Godfather, Watchmen, Sin City and even Law and Order are some examples where the style is alluded to. It is easier explained in pictures than in words:











THE ORIGINS OF THE GAME

Some time ago one of the nicest guys on the forum Sergio (sfar) tested out an idea he had for a Song Game, which involved people nominating a song – then at the end of it the songs were listed and people voted on their top three songs.

A few months later, as a Eurovision Song Contest nut, I had the thought of bringing the Eurovision element into it along with the voting system used there. We jointly once did some TT Olympic and TT Football specials and always made a great team so I checked with Sergio that he was OK for me to expand on his original idea, which he was, along with adding an interactive element of an interview with all participants about the songs and the game in general where everyone could put forward ideas and suggestions about the game, it's all really thanks to Sergio that this game started .

I once did a TT Eurovision special and gave the winner a heart-attack when I informed him that the Eurovision tradition is that the winner hosts the following year - instead the winner picks the next category.

Following that on 14th November 2013, the first ever TF Pick The Best Song Game was started.






HOW TO JOIN IN AND PLAY THE GAME


1. Send me a PM with any song that relates to the category above - along with the You Tube link if possible – MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE SONGS USED LIST TO CHECK THAT THE SONG HASN’T BEEN USED BEFORE

2. Make clear which is the song title and which is the artist.

3. 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.

4.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, anyone is welcome to play – here’s a link to all previous games which are housed at the TF Pick The Best Song Game Sub-Forum to see how it works :-
