The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 22 – Congrats to our winner mariusz_pol

The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Two – Songs That Inspire You The Most
(based on an original idea by sfar)







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

1. Send me a PM with any song that inspires you with a You Tube link if possible.

dogwonder24 said:
The song category would be "Songs That Inspire You The Most" :)

So basically, the songs must have a message within the lyrics that move you, motivates you to do better, or maybe inspire you literally in different aspects of life ;)
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 previous games to see how it works :-



- You can send your song until WEDNESDAY 14th MAY
- I'll publish all songs received on THURSDAY 15th MAY
- You can vote your 10 favourite songs (which will be given 12, 10, 8-1 points respectively – the good old Eurovision format) from the published list

Interesting category - no idea what I will choose off the top of my head.

I wonder what everyone will make out of the notion of "inspirational" songs. Hopefully not *too* many Whitney/Mariah/Celine ballads :p

Challenging topic. Very thought provoking indeed.

As I have said before The Kinks are the band that have inspired me the most by a big margin. Ray Davies is absolutely a hero to me. But I selected a Kinks song in game 18 and that game just concluded so I feel it is a little to early to select another Kinks song.

So what shall I do? I guess I will have to select what I probably regard as (excluding The Kinks) my number one favourite rock song of all time. Yeah, that would do it.... :eek:h: It does happen to be a very life affirming song too so that's a plus as well. :)

Voted.

There was only one song in my iTunes list that I would describe as "inspirational" so it made my pretty straightforward in the end.
