The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 286 – Funeral & Mourning - Congrats to Beat




Game No : 286


Category : Funeral & Mourning


(based on an original idea by sfar)





Category Chosen By : SRB Analyst


SRB Analyst said:
Hello, Adey. I cannot believe that I won for the 7th time, seven is my favorite number.
But I have decided to pick this theme.... Funeral & Mourning

My father passed away on the 11th of July, basically two weeks ago. I wanted to write a song for him, but I could not handle the emotions.
This is my reason to pick theme. Songs that you would like to play for dearly departed person or on a funeral day. It can consist any mourning word, like: "Oh, Lord, why did you take him?" Just find a fitting song that consists any word for days like a Funeral or just try to find a phrase with the meaning of mourning. Please, don't pick any cheerful track.

Examples from last games:

Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire
Rod Stewart - Forever Young
Beyonce - Halo
Judy Garland - Over The Rainbow


I hope everything is clear. That's all! May the best win!

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:
