Game No : 322





Category : For The Birds





(based on an original idea by sfar)











Category Chosen By : Boreas






Hey Adey,







The theme is For the birds : Songs featuring BIRDS - lyrically, visually, acoustically - your call. My call - no artists with birds in their names. The Housemartins, The Eagles, Sheryl Crow etc. can be submitted only if their songs fit the theme.







Have fun.














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:

The Crow and Silent Bird, the floor is yours.


Neko Case would have been perfect for this but nominated her already too often.
