Game No : 313





Category : Thirteen Tracks





(based on an original idea by sfar)











Category Chosen By : DropShotAce






Hi Adrian!







NAME GAME: Thirteen tracks







Well, This game is number 313 and I decided to be original.



For this game, you have to pick a song from an album with 13 tracks.



Doesnt matter the musical genre.



Good luck to everybody and try to find cool songs!!



I will check the game after all the songs being revealed.


I found one list.. Not my taste of music but here it is










You can count the bonus or extra tracks to complete the 13 songs of the album 😉










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:

Actually, this isn't straightforward becasue different version of an album are often released with different numbers of tracks. As long as one version has 13 tracks is that ok to take a song from it?

That seems to be what he is indicating when he suggests albums that have 13 tracks by way of bonus tracks etc, are acceptable. By that logic it rather suggests that albums with thirteen songs prior to the inclusion of bonus tracks are also acceptable. Therefore I think the idea is if a particular version of an album contains 13 tracks it is then acceptable even if other versions of the album have more or less tracks on them.

The one thing that wasn't brought up is whether compilations are eligible to be counted. I will leave that for DropShotAce to determine but I would suspect not. I will certainly be looking for an actually album rather than a compilation myself.
