The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Five – Open Category
(based on an original idea by sfar)







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

1. Send me a PM with any song - along with the You Tube link if possible.


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 :-

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Twenty-Five – Open Category

Some games ago, I semi-retired from open categories. I felt weekly TSG's are too much and I'd play only some interesting categories plus open ones only when I really want to post a certain song and don't want to wait for a suitable category. Well, this will be the 2nd open edition after that and my 2nd participation. This time my song will be one of the closest to my true music taste.

This non-theme doesn't help me whittle down the ~30 songs I'd like to nominate at some point :lol:

In! I'm taking a risk here but I've been committed to sending it to an open game for a little while.

:) Instead of nominating so early like I have been, I'm going to see how my game 23 pick does. ;)

Sorry for those who submitted me some ideas, but I finally went back to my initial idea of an open game.

I do hope we'll have some of the ideas proposed such as 60's, artists never been nominated & 21st century :yeah:

oh and Adey : Cheese Trophy ? :worship:
