Game No : 328





Category : Empresses of Modern R&B





(based on an original idea by sfar)











Category Chosen By : Pierre.








Hey Adey,



So, for this game, I decided in the end to go for slight twist on a category that has been done before, but these days is under-represented and undervalued in BSG. This week, I'd like to do "Empresses of Modern R&B". Empresses of R&B, to me, are defined as female artists who are not only great vocalists As we have just had a 70's game, which I think is a great category, I'd like to go the other way for this one and set a criteria that the song has to be from at least the 1990's onwards, which is still pretty fair. It can be a group or a solo singer, but ideally should be an artist or group that have great vocals. I would like to add that the song must be classified as R&B as well as the artist who is singing it, for example some (but not all) Rihanna tracks like Disturbia or Drunk On Love are not eligible as they are pop or club and not true R&B songs, whereas Needed Me or Consideration would qualify. The same goes for artists like Beyoncé or Alicia Keys, where the majority of their songs are eligible but there are a few pop numbers by them that can't be sent. If there are any doubts as to whether your song fits the category well enough or not, just let me know 💕



Thanks and have a good game!

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:

Oof, gonna be a tough game for me. Not at home in this category at all.

First of all I would have to find a good definition on what exactly is RnB. Since the 2000s I've seen a lot of pop/RnB fusions in the charts and I understand those will be too poppy.
