    PJ Retro 49 is here, once again hosted by @One Stop Candy Shop!


    Instructions

    You submit a song by sending me a PM. The veto panel then reviews your submission and decide if it passes. Then you listen to all of the other entries and put together a Eurovision-style ballot ranking the 10 songs you think most deserve recognition with point values as follows:

    12 points (your favorite)
    10 points
    8 points
    7 points
    6 points
    5 points
    4 points
    3 points
    2 points
    1 point (tenth favorite)

    You cannot vote for your own entry, so pray that someone else does. You don’t know who submitted the other songs and only those who have entered a song may submit a ballot. I’ll reveal the ballots one by one at the end, and whoever accrues the most points wins!

    The veto process

    Criteria that will absolutely result in your song being vetoed:

    • Song was originally released after December 31, 1999
    • Song was already entered in a previous round of any of the PJ song contests
    Click here for the list of previous PJOPS entries
    Click here for the list of previous PJSC entries?
    • Song peaked within the top 10 on the UK or US singles chart
    • Song is a cover of or contains a prominent sample of a UK or US top 10 hit OR was covered/prominently sampled in a song that was a UK or US top 10 hit
    • Act has over 30 pages of discussion on the forum
    • Act was entered in the previous round - this includes any related solo or group acts to an act that was entered in the previous round

    Criteria that will also be taken in consideration for veto purposes:

    • Song is from an album that peaked in the top 10 on the UK or US albums chart
    • Song is from a Platinum- or Gold-certified album in the UK or US
    • Song peaked between #11 and #20 on the UK or US singles chart
    • Song was a major hit in other big music markets (France, Germany, Japan, etc) and/or in multiple countries
    • Song is by an act who had major success in the UK or US
    • Act has been entered multiple times in this contest (e.g. Dalida)

    SONG THEME
    There was a time when every pop single was backed with a pumping extended 12" mix. There was a time when pop songs took their time and didn't need to be as short as possible to reel in as many streams as they could. In this round we celebrate the glory of the Long Song. So only songs that are over 4 minutes long are allowed!
    • This is not a remix/live versions round. Some songs obviously have remixes or live versions that are longer than their original version, but - if possible - please send a regular 'studio version' of a song. 'Single mixes' or 'radio edits' are fine.
    • When you find a video on YouTube that's 4:01 long, please also check at least Spotify or Discogs to make sure your song is indeed over 4 minutes long.
    • 3:59 =/= 4:00.
    SIDE THEME
    In spirit of the Long Songs/12" theme, we get a little help from a 12" friend (actually she's 11.5" but she's got a hat on).

    [​IMG]

    Besides the old songs we're listening to this round, we're also so gonna shine a light on some toys! Which toys did you play with when you were growing? What's your favourite classic board game? Which Barbie had the best 90's outfit? Which vintage video game ruined your thumbs? Pretty much anything goes, as long as it has that typical pre-2000 nostalgia factor.

    How does this all work? Just PM me your toy(s) of choice. A little word on why you picked this is encouraged but not obliged. The only rule is that it has to be from before 2000. Throughout this contest, the submitted toys/games will receive a spotlight feature in this thread. (You can PM your favourite toy(s) along with your song, or later on in the contest.)

    Do have I to do this? Yes No. The side theme isn't manditory, it's just a nice extra to help keep the thread alive.

    The toys thing is a side theme. The song you submit doesn't have to be linked to toys.

    SCHEDULE
    Submissions deadline: 22/9
    Voting period: 23/9-11/10
    Results: 12/10 or 13/10

    START SUBMITTING YOUR SONGS & TOYS OF CHOICE NOW!

  4. I'm glad I looked into a few possible entries earlier today, thankfully a few of them are 4+ minutes long!
     
  5. OH MY GOD I HAD THIS ONE

    I love it.
     
  6. Panicking because all of my 10 potential entries are under 4 minutes.

    Actually, one of them is over 4 minutes, but it's likely to be vetoed.
    I'm sure there some more, but I can't seem to recall of any.
     
  7. Oh, I just may have a song for this.
     
  8. Good thing videogames are allowed for the sidetheme. My choice is obvious then

    [​IMG]
     
  9. I love the GAY thread.
     
  10. Lila

    Ready to make myself public enemy number one by submitting a 7+ minute song with male vocals.
     
  11. [​IMG]

    I had some favorite toys, I'll think about the best of them all.

    As for the song, I think I'll struggle. Can I just take part in the side theme? dddd
     
  12. Wait! That sounds exactly like the initial song I was planning to submit. Does it appear on a certain album?

    Actually, this theme for the songs crossed my mind earlier today, and it's fitting, considering that the previous winning song was quite long.

    Eventually, I remembered a few more 4+ minute songs, and I figured out something in the meantime, which made my choice somewhat easier. I don't think that any of these have a chance to end up in the top half of the leaderboard anyways. Submitting right away to avoid going back and forth between these several flop submissions.
    Seems like I'm continuing with #TeamForeignLanguage.

    My entry is going to be so obvious.
     
  13. My favorite Katy Perry music video <3
     
  14. So many puns, so little time.
     
  15. Shoiulda kept that Sueno Flamenco mix for this round! Ddddddd
     
    WowWowWowWow, Maki and soratami like this.
  16. ohnostalgia

    ohnostalgia Staff Member

    Yes, make us listen to retro opuses.
     
  17. If I wasn't certain it would leave me at about #34 come the reveals, I'd go the full hog and enter something 7 minutes plus...
     
  18. Lila

    Lila Staff Member

    If you follow me on last.fm you’ll know what it is.
     
  19. I just realized that this 4+ song length round won't be really suitable for me, when there's PJSC round with at least 60 entries occurring at the same time.
    It will be a busy month.

    I don't even have last.fm but I'll try to figure out which song is yours.
    Edit: Nope, it's not that one! I've never heard of that song before.
     
    WowWowWowWow, berserkboi and Lila like this.
  20. Live footage of me and the 3:57 song I was previously planning on entering:
