The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 15 – 33⅓ - Congrats to our winner Marcus1979

The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Fifteen – 33⅓
(based on an original idea by sfar)








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

1. Send me a PM with any song that is sung by an Artist on any of the albums listed in this link :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33⅓ with a You Tube link if possible – but not a problem if not.

Thanks for all the kindness and support from everyone. I like you guys (and gals) a lot. :) :bigcry:

As for the category...well there it is in my interview.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33⅓

To clear up a couple of questions, yes one can select from albums listed in the "2014 titles" and "Releases to be announced" sections. Also one can pick any songs from any of the albums listed that appear not on the original albums but do appear as bonus tracks in reissues or deluxe versions. :D

But one does need to confine ones selections to the albums on this list of books. Hence "Born in the USA" can be used, "Born to Run" can not be used. :lol:

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.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Fifteen – 33⅓ - Nominate Your Songs

Err...okay, as the person who nominated this category I guess it is down to me to clarify what this game involves.

First I should tell you a bit about the 33⅓ series of books. This is an ongoing book series in which different people write entire books looking at one single album in great depth. In my view, for a music album to justify and inspire such focus and attention to detail that someone would choose to write a book about it suggests that said album must have something pretty special going for it. And looking at this list of books I can say, I do think each one of these albums does have something that is indeed a cut above the rest, even if not everyone is exactly to my taste. That said, there are a lot of albums listed here I do love a lot. In fact, for what it's worth more than half have found their way into my personal CD collection.

These are great albums and they do cover the entire history of rock and pop music of the last 50 years right up to the present. A wide variety of genres, styles and eras is represented and these albums veer from the very mainstream to some which are pretty leftfield. I can't really see anyone not liking, indeed not absolutely loving at least three or four of the records listed here. In my case there are at least 30 I adore to bits.

Okay so what will the criteria for selecting a song this game be then? Basically you can select a song from any album that has been used or is scheduled to be used as the subject of a book in the 33⅓ series of books. The complete list is printed here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33⅓ . This list includes not just all the books that have so far been published in this series but those that are forthcoming this year or later in the future. You may select any song from any album listed, whether the book covering that album has been published or is simply in the planning stages. As pretty much all these albums are regarded as classics it is not surprising many of them have come out in deluxe versions. You are also free to select songs that were not included on the original albums but did turn up later on as bonus tracks in reissues or deluxe versions of the album.

I could give dozens of examples of bonus tracks that have found their way on to these classic albums but I will give just one. In 1980, The Rolling Stones recorded a song about Claudine Longet that implicated her in the murder of her boyfriend. That song was at the time consider too controversial to be released. But it has since then turned up as a bonus track on the "Some Girls" deluxe album released a couple of years ago.

Alright, I think that's all that needs to be said here. And yes, for those with a curious mind you might want to visit the actual website of the 33⅓ series. They are at http://333sound.com/33-13-series/

Have to say, I'm kind of hoping some people really take their time selecting their song for this contest and explore some of the wonderful records that are available for nomination which they are curious about first. ;)

I sent my pick before the thread was even opened! :lol:

I'd be surprised anyone else send it after me, though.

The complete list is printed here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33⅓ .
I own/know 64 albums out of the 90 listed. :)

7 of them are dear favorites of mine. I think they're all great/good albums, though some aren't to my musical taste (Slayer or Guns'n'Roses, for instance, but I've listened to them).

Found something. Sent. I hope this game has good participation, but I have a feeling some may find it difficult to find something.
