PJ00s XXX - Confession Time - WINNER!!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by berserkboi, Oct 4, 2020.

    Welcome to PJ00s XXX - The Confessions Edition!
    Taking inspiration from one of the best albums of the decade, your hosts found themselves confessing their sins to the nearest statue that would listen! Dddd


      • 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 (see the wiki), 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).

    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:
    - 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
    - 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


    Since there were talks of accentuating the numerical XXX - Eric & I would like you to share some of your confessions with us - be they G Rated or XXX Rated, that's what the SPOILER option is for! Be inspired by @Doodvid in the LGBTQIA+ thread if you must! Dddd

    You can PM these to us with your votes and we should be revealing then alongside. A picture of yourself from the decade - wearing your best dodgy fashions, in front of posters of your 00s crushes, confessing to statues?, using some obsolete technology etc would also be appreciated!

    Side Theme - since only men ever manage to bring the Berserks the win (and Madonna is never seen without a bit of eye candy), we are celebrating the Male Hits of the 00s decade. Send through a song by a Male Solo Artist or Male Group (no female vocal parts please) and we will elect a winner Eurovision Style too! I'd recommend you send a song or man who would never pass VETO, so you don't waste a potential future entry.



    Timelines:
    Submissions: October 4 - October 11
    Voting: Side Theme - til October 24 / Main Theme - til October 31
    Reveals: Side Theme - October 25 / Main Theme - November 1

    Please PM both @Eric and @berserkboi

    Single Gun Theory - Illusion

    Other things to note!


    Nadia Ali and Vaishali Samant: longer on Spotify but in these cases, we've used the link provided by the submitters.

    If possible, use Spotify to play the Kim-Lian song as the YouTube Link skips about 45 seconds in.

    You can post now :)
     
  5. So, does my confession have to be about something I did in the 00s too?
    Also, y'all will get to see me as a little kid so I hope you enjoy that.
     
  6. Up to you when the confession is from I guess...

    Can't wait to see a baby Graig!

    I'm super excited to see all the amazing fashions / Motorola flip phones / hair mascara / tales of writing love poems in gold pen while going through an "emo" stage!

  9. Don't forget the tales of looking forward to the next episodes of Hannah Montana, Wizards Of Waverly Place, etc. while constantly binge watching Scooby-Doo and Spongebob.

    Oh wait that'll just be me.

    Also, dddd at the fact that this hasn't really changed except I'm not waiting for new episodes. Fuck growing up.

  10. Posting photo's of ourselves? Hmm, can't wait to see what some of you look like!

    Ha! Same with me but it was teen dramas like Dawson's Creek or the latest S Club / Star Street / waiting for Steps to appear on weekend TV!
     
  12. I must say - so far all the men/songs submitted for the Side Theme are 10/10 in my book! WeLoveToSeeIt.gif!
     
  13. Translation: still not getting any points.

    So the side theme can be literally any song by a male artist, no matter how successful, as long as it was first released in the 2000s?
     
  15. Yes, but don't send something you could send to a regular round and pass with. It would be silly to waste a potential entry, especially when many others will grab famous songs/acts...
     
  16. I have a confession: in the 2000s I was a Maroon 5 fan. They had great bops.
    Judge me.

    Who didn't own Songs About Jane? It was everywhere!
     
  18. This was (is) my fave. A song, a video, a man.
     
  19. I have a confession to make: I don’t like Disco Down and Chocolate, but love Wow and Your Disco Needs You
