PJ Retro 58 - COVERS (ACE WINS!!) & VIRGINS (DEREK WINS!!)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by berserkboi, Aug 24, 2020.

    (Banner highlights some of the biggest records of 1958, according to Wikipedia)
    Welcome to the 58th Installment of the Song Contest that celebrates the music of the 20th (or prior) Century!



    The iconic French boys of Partenaire Particulier has lead to a Berserky Host for you all, and he hopes to deliver the goods!





    You have used your vote wisely, and decided we will be sacrificing some virgins this go around for our Main Theme!



    Standing Rules that still apply this round, and are sure to result in a VETO:

    - 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/PJRetro 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 25 pages of discussion on the forum.


    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



    You also have to make sure your Act is a Virgin to the Retro Contest!
    (Please check whether they have already appeared on this sheet with a quick Ctrl + F)

    Some exceptions I am happy to allow:

    - If they have previously participated in our sister contests (PJSC, PJ00s, PJXtra), they can still appear this round.
    - If an act has previously competed as a Main Artist, but you would like to feature something they wrote or produced (an example would be if Timbaland had been a Main Artist in a previous round, he could reappear as a producer/songwriter)
    - I would prefer any related solo or group acts to an act that was entered in the previous round not to appear this round. (e.g. Gwen Stefani and No Doubt, in an alternate universe where either of them could actually pass the veto criteria.)




    To keep things fun and allow us to relish in more classic music we don't typically get to highlight on the Forum -
    we also have a side theme!

    For the Side Contest, please submit one of your Favourite Covers of the 20th Century to compete Eurovision Style!

    When selecting your cover, please be mindful of the following:

    - Must have been released on or before December 31, 1999.
    - It must be a cover, not a sample/mash-up
    - A version of the song you submit must have been a hit, even if not the version you are putting forward!
    - Foreign Language Covers are highly encouraged!


    Once each song list is revealed, we put together a Eurovision-style ballot ranking the 10 songs that most deserve recognition with point values as follows:
    12 points (your favourite song other than your own goes here.)
    10 points

    8 points
    7 points
    6 points
    5 points
    4 points
    3 points
    2 points
    1 point (your 10th favourite song goes here.)
    You cannot vote for your own entry, you don’t know who submitted the other songs, and only those who have entered a song may submit a ballot. Contestants who enter a song but don’t vote have their points total halved as a consequence.


    Your timelines are:

    Submit til August 31st
    (Vienna, Austria Time as a nod to @Filippa though she might be nowhere near there ddd)
    Vote Deadline for Side Theme - September 9th (Reveals of Side Theme September 10/11)
    Vote Deadline for Main Theme - September 16th (Reveals of Main Theme September 17/18)

  6. BTW is it not time we changed 'list of previous PJOPS entries' to list of PJ Retro entries in the instructions? Ddd.
     
  7. Attack Of The Virgins! sounds like a long-forgotten B-Movie from the 70s

    (Or a porn film you bought on VHS from the boot of a car in the 80s).
     
  8. @Hudweiser found stanning!
     
  9. @Hudweiser found winning and holding a Return To Bloodweiser Theme next round and killing them all! Dddd
     
  10. If I ever win this one again I have a huuuuge idea for the theme. And it's - gasp - not horror themed.
     
  11. Ah! I found something to enter (I think - hope - pray ddd). I did scream a bit when @berserkboi was advicing me in my DM's on what to enter for this contest (as my list is blanc) by searching previously entered artists and new songs.

    Also @berserkboi: only virgins this contest!

  13. I can see it from my end :( Can I send to you and you can fix with your Mod powers? :)

    I just looked at the embed link and... it appears you've embedded an image link from an attachment to your Hotmail account. Sis.

    Just upload it to imgbb or postimages.org.

    EDIT: Just did this for you. It should now show up fine for everyone.

    You're welcome x

    In other news: I have entered the best cover of all time for the side theme. The rest of you can all go home now, because I refuse to acknowledge that there is a better cover in existence.
     
  17. Well, I know exactly which one. It was one of the three I passed on cause I am expecting them to see anyway. So I went with a woman who has not been mentioned a lot here but definitely deserves the recognition.

    ---

    I now see the banner and seeing Dalida and her best song 'Buenas Noches Mi Amor' - WHEW. 1958 = iconic.
     
  18. People still use hotmail?

    Says me with a yahoo account ddd.

    (If you have indeed guessed it correctly then I'm expecting a 12 from you.)
     
  20. Well there is also that other big one - so who knows.
