Round 3

I'm like a dog to get to you!


Welcome to the third round of PJ00s. We will once again celebrate the awesome songs of the naughties that never had a proper day in the sun. This your chance to go through your CDs, cassettes, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, ... and send in that obscure bop that will rock PJ forever.

The dog thing is just a side theme (see the next post). The song you submit doesn't have to be about dogs ('Who Let The Dogs Out' would be vetoed anyway). As long as your song fits the criteria below, you should be fine. Woof!

Here are the rules:

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
  • 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 (see the wiki), or PJOPS (list of entries here; the '00s crossover round list can be found here)
Songs that fail these criteria should be vetoed by the round host. Songs that pass these criteria should be PMed to the veto panel for their decisions, with at least a 2/3 majority vote required for a song to be be included in the contest.

Repeat artists guideline:
- for songs that didn't win the previous round - no artists who were entered in that round can be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured, etc.) in the next round
- for the winner of each round, that artist cannot be entered again (in any form - solo, group, featured) for the subsequent five rounds
- if the same artist wins two rounds of PJ00s in any form (solo artist, group, feature, etc.), that artist is no longer eligible for future PJ00s rounds

Voting rules:
  • You can award points to 10 entries per round. Award points ranging from 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 (with 12 points going to your favorite entry).
  • Only people who submitted a participating song can vote.
  • Entrants cannot vote for their own submission.
  • All entrants who fail to vote by the host's deadline will have their final scores be cut in half.
Repeat non-voter policy:

Non-voters negatively impact both themselves and everyone who voted for them. Therefore, participants who fail to cast their ballots by the voting deadline for two consecutive rounds, or for 3 non-consecutive rounds out of 5 sequential rounds, will be banned from entering the next 5 rounds.

: Send your song plus a videolink and Discogs link to me @One Stop Candy Shop in a conversation. Deadline is Sunday the 26th of November (UK time).

Voting: The deadline to send in your votes will be Thursday the 21st of December (UK time).

Reveal: If all goes well, we'll know our next winner on Friday the 22nd of December.

The side theme.

I had a hard time deciding what the theme should be. But then I got inspired by the fantastic Goldfrapp song Number 1 (take a look at my awesome rate) and also by my own shih tzu/maltese crossbreed Pipa.

So the theme is... DOGS!

For this round's side theme, you get to pick a dog breed to accompany you through this round. You can pick any breed you like, as long as it hasn't been chosen by someone else. Just post in this thread what kind of dog you are.

Based upon the dog you pick, I will try to make the reveal... interesting.

If you're more of a CATS person, you can also choose a feline friend of your choice.

But let's not make this thread a competition of cats versus dogs.
We're all friendly animals who love each other!

I'm a Shih Tzu, so that one's taken.


As I explained in the first post, your song submissions don't have to be inspired by the theme.

Have fun!!
