The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 39 – Short Songs - Congrats to Pratik



The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game Thirty-Nine– Short Songs
(based on an original idea by sfar)





OK here we go with Game Number Thirty-Nine - The game is very easy to play:

1. Send me a PM with any song that is 2 minutes 40 seconds long or shorter - along with the You Tube link if possible.

Hey!

Short songs! Send a song under 2min 40s (2:40). This means, the youtube links under 2:40 will be eligible.

Hey,

Congrats on the win - can you let me know what you pick by 7pm tomorrow when I open the new thread.

2. 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.

3. 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 – here’s a link to all previous games and results in the new TF Pick The Best Song Game Forum to see how it works :-

Ha! Good one:yeah:

I'm spoiled for choice, got 4 already that fit the bill:D
Yeah, I realize I was pretty generous with the upper limit. :shrug: Maybe someone will lower it in a future contest.

I think it will still be a challenge for some, at least if they want to enter a good song (and why wouldn't they want to do that):)

nice one, and easy for me :)

p.s. adey, i noticed in the "already used songs" file that arcade fire and "haiti" are interchanged: "haiti" is in the band column, and arcade fire in the one for song titles.

One thing I noticed in a previous edition was that a lot of the big songs from the 60s were shorter than I would have thought.

Just saying…:eek:h:

I checked my song game history: I've submitted seven songs under 2:40 already. Even one under 2:00. My winner was barely over 2:00. :)
