Adey, I shan't be able to be on again for a few hours so maybe you could tally the score please? From a quick look I think Film Noir has it though unless there is a late run. BTW Sam L have you actually voted?

We have already had enough "film noir" themes in previous edition, but people try to ignore that fact or are unaware. That makes it so indulgent, letting someone to have a free ride

EDIT: Now I see the sense of making the theme Open.
Well the scandalous theme was largely about scandalous artists, not necessarily the songs themselves. The last related one might be the goth one, or Walpurgis night but neither completely cover the ideals.

Anyway just a suggestion, I was going to send this previously when Adey offered the theme to me as 2nd before Dropshotace's votes were voided due to his ban for the Slavic edition so Adam picked.

I would probably not mind classical otherwise if people didn't make Dohnanyi Rhapsody come last in the final of the Gone but Not Forgotten Game which I had saved for some time hoping for decent reception. Horrendous

Congrats, Mauriac

I'd go for Film Noir. We got very few players for this Open game and the UK one so I'm afraid a classical theme, as much as I can enjoy it, would bring a shockingly low number of participants.

Um the thread for game 272 has disappeared. Can we get an extension?

Congrats Mauriac on another excellent song and thank you so much for another outstanding job, AdeyC!

I feel that a classical theme might alienate more players away and the game is already struggling to gather enough participants as it is... some classical pieces from composers like Schoenberg, Ives and Mahler, are dark enough to fit into a "noir" theme, if we could expand the definition out to "somber, claustrophobic" tunes... so my vote would be for a "noir" theme, for being of easier access and more inclusive...

Congrats Mauriac

I don't mind classical music entries but a whole game solely consisting of classical music isn't appealing for me at all. Film Noir for me.

And it's just a coincidence I bring this up now that the scale has tipped.
Scandalous.
