The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Four – Sadly Deceased
(based on an original idea by sfar)







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

1. Send me a PM with any song with a singer/lead singer of a band who is sadly deceased - along with the You Tube link if possible.

Monzanator said:
My Winner's pick category: Deceased

Picks for solo vocallists are obvious, in case of bands - the lead singer should be decased while the duets - both singers should be decased. Hopefully it's not too complicated.
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.

Excellent theme. Absolutely brilliant in fact. Maybe the best theme in these entire games. Respect to Greg for choosing the category. I have a feeling this one is going to produce an amazing game. :)

Well this doesn't limitate us too much so it's good, but I indeed have to postpone my initial pick for this edition :p

It shouldn't take too long to come up with an idea

Well, I was trying to prevent "artists" like Lady Gaga or Vanessa Carlton winning on the category I choose in first place ;) And I thought the 60s would be too old school even for TF :)

I immediately thought of two vocalists , one more recently deceased than the other. Not sure who I want to pledge my allegiance too. :scratch:
