Game No : 338
Category : Punk Rock Girls
(based on an original idea by sfar)
Category Chosen By : Shvedbarilescu
Thank you for your post and after much pondering I can now say......
Alriiiiiight!!!! The decision has been made. The theme for game 338 is going to be Punk Rock Girls.
For this theme, we will be looking for music by either a female artist or a band that is led by a female. If it is a band the other musicians can be female or male or a combination but a large female representation is very much encouraged.
Allowed genres will be, proto-punk/garage rock, which is basically pre-punk, or music that influence the punk rock emergence of the the late 70s (76-78), punk rock, post punk, no wave, new wave, lofi indie rock, riot grrrl, and other musical genres associated with riot grrrl and alternative rock from the 90s particular (but not exclusively) based around Seattle, Olympia WA, Washington DC, New York, London and Glasgow. Artists from the last 20 or so years are also allowed providing their music is guitar based and raw. The music here should not be overproduced. We are looking for stuff that is pretty raw and guitar based. In most cases the music from this game will come from independent labels, not majors but I won't set that on as something to be enforced in stone as there are clear exception to this such as Patti Smith (Arista) and later day Sonic Youth (David Geffen's label part of Interscope).
Basically music here can come from any era but it does need to be raw, full of attitude and rebellion and with a DIY spirit. I should also point out that can include some artists who became mainstream but still came from the punk scene. This even includes acts like Madonna (pre 1st album) and Bananarama (several of their earliest tracks would be okay, but obviously not anything past the 1st album). Pre 1st album Bangles and Go-Gos would also be suitable but not the music they made once signing to a major. I hope that gives everyone an idea of what we are seeking here.
Any questions, I am happy to answer to the best of my ability.
All the best folks.....
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 :-
