I found this game on another site and it looked fun. Hopefully we'll get some good entries and maybe someone else can host another once mine is done!

The Rules
I will provide eight categories of songs. You have to select a song you think I might like that fits with each theme and submit it via PM (Discord works too). I will score each of your songs on a scale of 1-10. I'll make all scores public at the end and whoever has the highest score wins! Deadline will be July 4, and I'll update with a list of people who have submitted as they come in.

My Music Taste
There is very little that's an instant pass from me. I really like rap, country, folk, indie, rock, alternative, etc. The genres I like least are pop, classical, harder EDM, and heavy metal, but even those I enjoy a good portion of the time, so really don't shy away from anything!

The Categories
  1. A song about a mode of transportation (Bikes, planes, cars, trains, etc)
  2. A song by an artist that has died
  3. A song with a number in the title
  4. A song by your favorite artist
  5. A cover that's better than the original
  6. A one-hit wonder
  7. A song without words
  8. A song by an artist from a non-English speaking country (the lyrics, if any, can be in English, but it has to be the artist's second language)
Again, submit via PM or Discord message. Deadline is July 4. First submission is final. Obviously easier if you share links! :D

Oooooo this looks fun

So do I submit the link to the MV along with the name, or just the name of the song?

Define "Song". If it satisfies me then I will join.

Uhhh, a piece of music that's usually about 2-5 minutes and often accompanied by vocals?

If you have the time to do this, why don't you have the time to participate in something you signed up for in the same subforum?

I have sent him my entry:

1. Flobots - Handlebars

2. Linkin Park - Somewhere I Belong

3. Gin Wigmore - Nothing To No One

4. Chris Webby - Story Of My Life (feat. Millyz & Xander Goodheart)
The Artist that's my fave is Chris Webby.

5. Creep - Vintage Postmodern Jukebox Radiohead Cover ft. Haley Reinhart
I know that you like Indie and dislike Classical, this is a risk since it is a Jazz cover of an Indie song but I believe you'll love it.

6. Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out

7. MAD WORLD (Cello & Piano Version) - Brooklyn Duo

8. Shakira - Perro Fiel ft. Nicky Jam

You sure love country music. I liked your #2 the most.

Make sure you PM him.

I think you will like this cover of Tainted Love, given your affliction for Country Music:

I do like country quite a bit, and #2 is truly a classic.

Make sure you PM him.
Already done!

I like it, probably better than the original.

#5 was my second fave, not a major country fan personally but I can understand why someone who is very into that 'vibe' would enjoy it. For me #5 and #2 were nice.

I won't win because I put about zero effort into the first five of the list but will participate anyway.

The link I gave for Gin Wigmore's Nothing to No One seems to not work in all regions.


use this link instead.

Bumping for any late entrants and a reminder for Disc in the event you want to submit the remaining ones.

Submissions due by tomorrow at midnight EST, I'll reveal my scores and thoughts on the songs Sunday probably!

Honestly number 7 is going to be too much of a pain in the ass for me. I mean, if you can't sing along at the top of your lungs and keep the neighbors up all night then what even is the point?!?!

Songs without lyrics. Honestly. Damn barbarians.

I can send in a little something for 6 and 8 though, don't expect me to put on any more effort than what I did for the first 5 however.

Just in case, so that nobody is upset, I'm saying this before submissions are due.

I said to PM me because I figured you might want to keep entries secret, but posting them here is acceptable and if you posted them but didn't PM me that's fine too.
