Hey,

Congrats on the Song Game win (it finally happened :yeah:)

As winner you can either pick a category for the next game or choose to leave it an Open Game.

Can you let me know by 7pm which you'd like to pick.

Hi Adrian, thank you. It is incredible, it's a dream come true. My theme will be "Balletomane". As an avid fan of ballet, this theme is dedicated to music of the ballet world. It can be anything from actual ballet music from composers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballet_(music) or music from films about ballet: https://www.ranker.com/list/the-best-ballet-movies/all-genre-movies-lists or anything to do with ballet and music around this dance. As long as there's some evidence that ballet has been performed to this music, it's fine. And it can be classical or contemporary ballet. Thank you.

THE ORIGINS OF THE GAME

Some time ago one of the nicest guys on the forum Sergio (sfar) tested out an idea he had for a Song Game, which involved people nominating a song – then at the end of it the songs were listed and people voted on their top three songs.

A few months later, as a Eurovision Song Contest nut, I had the thought of bringing the Eurovision element into it along with the voting system used there. We jointly once did some TT Olympic and TT Football specials and always made a great team so I checked with Sergio that he was OK for me to expand on his original idea, which he was, along with adding an interactive element of an interview with all participants about the songs and the game in general where everyone could put forward ideas and suggestions about the game, it's all really thanks to Sergio that this game started :worship: .

I once did a TT Eurovision special and gave the winner a heart-attack when I informed him that the Eurovision tradition is that the winner hosts the following year - instead the winner picks the next category.

Following that on 14th November 2013, the first ever TF Pick The Best Song Game was started.





HOW TO JOIN IN AND PLAY THE GAME


1. Send me a PM with any song that relates to the category above - along with the You Tube link if possible – MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE SONGS USED LIST TO CHECK THAT THE SONG HASN’T BEEN USED BEFORE

2. Make clear which is the song title and which is the artist.

3. 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.

4.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, anyone is welcome to play – here’s a link to all previous games which are housed at the TF Pick The Best Song Game Sub-Forum to see how it works :-

RANKINGS POINTS

The following rankings points are given at the end of each game :





Although the game didn't immediately start at one every week, it was fairly early in the run of games that it became a weekly game, so to make things simple I've counted every game as one week.

Rankings are compiled from the last 52 games - the best 16 scores during the last 52 games count to the players total ranking.

With huge thanks and acknowledgement to Markus for doing a lot of the inputting of and clearing the then backlog :worship:

Hmm....I have watched very few ballets and don't remember the music of those I did see. Another research one, then.

I didn't think it's difficult - I've got two on my "songs to use at some time" list that are suitable - just got to decide which one.

I thought this would be easier? :confused:
Errr, no ;) I haven't got the faintest idea where to begin a search.

And sorry, but since I'm going on holidays as well the coming weeks I'll probably pass on this game.
