Game No : 331





Category : Critically Acclaimed





(based on an original idea by sfar)











Category Chosen By : chainedtomaria








Hello Adey!



My theme is going to be: Critically Acclaimed



How does this work? You have to send a song from an album that has an 80 or higher score on Metacritic. In case someone doesn't know, metacritic.com is a website that aggregates reviews from films, TV shows, video games and what we're interested in, music. It basically collects the scores from each review of the product and averages the final score of it using the weighted arithmetic mean (similar to an ordinary arithmetic mean, the most common type of average, except that instead of each of the data points contributing equally to the final average, some data points contribute more than others). Here's the range of scores with their meaning:







Since we need critically acclaimed music, you can only send songs from albums in the "Universal Acclaim" range, with an 80-100 score (it's from 81 originally but 80 should be included IMO).



If you want to know the score of the album you're looking for, just search on Google "'x album' metacritic" and the first result will be its page in Metacritic. It can be any song from it.



Good luck and if you have any other questions let me know!




Hello again!



I would like to add one more thing. In order for the album to be eligible, it needs to have at least 5 critics that reviewed it. Songs from albums with 80-100 score but with only 1-4 critics CANNOT be sent.










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:

It's much better than I feared. 😅

And now I'll find out all the songs on my list are not critically acclaimed.
