PJ00s 24 - Song Connection - songlist up!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Filippa, Mar 14, 2020.

  1. Welcome to PJ00s 24: The “Song Connection” edition!


    Hello again! @soratami and me welcome you to PJ00s 24! We won’t have one hundred participants, so be our guests!

    Let’s cherish the noughties music together!

    These are the
    General inclusion/exclusion criteria for entries:
    • must have been first released between 01.01.2000-12.31.2009
    • no UK top 20 hits
    • no US top 20 hits
    • no tracks from a US or UK top 10 album
    • no covers or prominent samples of famous songs
    • no relatively famous/chart-successful cover versions of your desired entry (if it's the original version) recorded by a different act
    • no songs (or covers of songs) that have competed in the Eurovision Song Contest (semi-finals or finals)
    • relatively unknown/underrated on Popjustice - so as a general benchmark, nothing from an artist with more than 10 pages of discussion on PJ (across all their artist threads)
    • no entry that has been previously entered in a previous round of PJ00s (list of past entries here), PJSC (list of past entries here), or PJOPS (list of entries here; the '00s crossover round list can be found here). Additionally, no entry that has been previously vetoed in PJ00s (in general, these acts will most likely be vetoed again, unless the reason for the veto was that the song was previously entered in a different song contest).

    A list of previously vetoed entries is here.

    Repeat artists guideline:
    - the same act (in any form - solo, group, featured, etc.) cannot be entered for FOUR rounds since their last appearance (i.e., a non-winning round 8 act can be reentered no sooner than round 13, and in round 9, non-winning acts from rounds 1-4 are generally eligible again)
    - for the winner of each round, that artist cannot be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured) for the subsequent TEN rounds.

    Submit your contest song to both me & @soratami ‘till the 24th of March
    Voting will close on April 13t

    But wait there's more!

    We're going to have us a fun game this round. Please read the rules carefully!


    1. Along with your entry, submit another 00s song that is somehow connected to your entry. The connection can be lyrical, musical, down to who wrote/produced the song, or even something more indirect. The connection shouldn't be too obvious (for example, two songs with the same title) or too obscure (try to go for something that you think at least a few people will be able to guess).

    2. The extra song should preferably be fairly well known/PJ-friendly. At the very least, try to pick something by an act that has a PJ thread.

    3. When the entry period is over, a list of the extra songs will be posted along with the entry list. The point of the game is to connect as many extra songs and entries as possible, and also trying to guess who picked them.

    4. Correctly connecting an extra song and an entry gets you one point, correctly guessing who entered them gets you another point. So if you correctly connect an extra song and an entry and correctly guess who entered them as well, that's two points.

    5. Submit your guesses to @soratami and @Filippa. They don't necessarily have to be at the same time as your votes, feel free to submit them before or after.

    6. Whoever gets the most points wins! Have fun!


    This round's banners show two examples of what we're looking for:

    Overpowered is literally about the Biology of falling in love, and has has multiple biological terms in the lyrics.

    Poker Face and Russian Roulette are both inspired by gambling/games of chance, and Poker Face even features the lyric "Russian roulette is not the same without a gun".

    These are just two examples, but there are many ways to approach this game. We're looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!
  3. But wait, that's not all!

    In addition to the main game, we'll also be doing an extra Song Connection Game during the entry period, featuring all PJ00s winners (including the Second Chances Round one). Consider this preparation for the main event, as it'll be shorter and probably easier

  5. A huge thank you to @vague for making the fabulous banners!

    And you can post now!

  7. Interesting...I like it!
  8. If anything about the game sounds confusing or unclear, please ask. I hope it doesn't look more complicated than it actually is, it's simply about trying to pair the songs correctly.

    During the entry period we'll do it with the 24 winners and the songs we picked, and during the voting period we'll do it with everyone's entries and extra songs.
  9. The concept of this round's theme...

    It was totally worth the wait and I'm so excited for this!
  10. I love games so I am clearly in!
  11. Wonderful theme @soratami & @Filippa! I've had some ideas for side-theme games too, so I am super curious to see how all this plays out. Your idea here is right up my alley!

    Great art, too @vague!

    This is gonna be a fun round.
  12. Thanks for the submissions so far everyone! Love seeing what people are coming up with as their extra song picks.

    For the winners connection game, I'll say that at least some of the connections should be really easy to figure out, so hopefully everyone gives it a shot. I'll be giving some hints these next few days, but it'll be cool to see if anyone manages to correctly guess all/most of them without any hints.
  13. I have just submitted my main song and the next time I look I have a million likes from @vague.
    I guess that's the stamp of approval and I have a 12 incoming.
    So well done to her for the graphics.

    This is a great theme.

    I was expecting Jack Bauer though.
    londonrain, vague, berserkboi and 6 others like this.
  14. Obligatory but
  15. Because of the game I had to listen to all the winners, so I'm ready for that PJ00s Winners Rate, I already know what's getting my 11 (unless the winner in this round or the next really blows me away).

  17. Finding a song to connect to my entry was a bit tough, so I fell back asleep when thinking about it. It is now in though!

    Edit - do we need to explain why we are connecting each winner to the other song on our answer?
    Music Is Life, vague, Maki and 2 others like this.
  18. does the connected song has to be from the 00s as well please tell me it doesn't
