@berserkboi & @WoW73 would like to welcome you to PJ Retro 64! The theme of this round...? The best decade for pop music: the 80's! All the general rules for PJ Retro apply, but all entries have to be released between 1-1-1980 and 31-12-1989.... When submitting your entry, please send it to BOTH hosts in a PM, with a YouTube link, and if available, a Spotify link for your song, merci! PJ Retro Rules: "You submit a song, the veto panel reviews your submission, and you’ll hear back if you’ve successfully passed. Once the song list is revealed, you listen to all of the other entries and put together a Eurovision-style ballot ranking the 10 songs you think most deserve recognition 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 will have their points total halved as a consequence. I’ll reveal the ballots one by one at the end, and whoever accrues the most points wins the round, the envy of their peers, and a promotional deal with Tesco. Simple as that. Criteria that will absolutely result in a veto • Song was originally released between 1-1-1980 and 31-12-1989 • Song was already entered in a previous round of any of the PJ song contests • Click here for the list of previous PJOPS/PJ Retro 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 25 pages or more 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 (ex. Gwen Stefani and No Doubt, in an alternate universe where either of them could actually pass the veto criteria) 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 • Act has 15-24 pages of discussion on the forum • Song is by an act who had major success in the UK or US • Act has been entered multiple times in this contest" We will spotlight some of the best 80's PJ Retro entries from the past during this round, as well as some ineligible forgotten classics. Looking forward to it? We are!
