Game No : 342





Category : Musical Mosaic





(based on an original idea by sfar)











Category Chosen By : Matmagix








Hi Adey,







Here is the theme I have in mind for next game.







"Musical Mosaic"







A mosaic is a pattern formed by combining smaller pieces of different elements together. Alone, the pieces don't do much but together, they can form something original and amazing. The theme will reflect on this concept in musical form.







Here are a few ideas that could be used to help you select a song.







Pick a collaboration or song with features. Collaboration refers to two or more distinct artists who choose to combine their talents, usually for a single album. To make the most of the theme, consider how these artists add to and enrich the song individually and collectively.

Opt for "fusion" songs that combine elements of different genres.

Pick a song that has distinct parts/sections (an example would be Travis Scott SICKO MODE which I previously submitted)

Or simply send a song where you feel different elements are organised in such a way that they combine masterfully to form the piece. Here, construction is emphasised ahead of disjointness.











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:

I don’t think I completely understand this theme. I can only think, apart of collaborations, in very long stuff like “Impossible Love” by Sufjan or “The Shrine/An argument” by Fleet Foxes or “The past is a grotesque animal” by Of Montreal in which the song is telling a story through several parts that have a very different orchestation/flow because they are showing a change in the plot/narration.

After the easy listening theme, another open theme then? :D Just kidding, I'll try to find something decent (but have no idea where to look at this moment).

Great theme. 🙂 I hope to find something. I already found stuff of that kind in the past so memory should help.
