Dearly beloved, We are gathered here today thanks to the epic shoulder shimmying of Japanese twins The Peanuts. After besting the likes of incest-praising showtunes, Academy Award-nominees and Eurovision C-stars. Spoiler: Speaking of, let's have a look at some of the comments about last round's most controversial selection. NSFW. Oh dear, must have opened the wrong tab titled ”Uncle fucker”... let's move on shall we. And now I am going to borrow (steal) some information from our previous host @londonrain, who did a magnificent job hosting and making the last contest the biggest ever. Spoiler: WHAT IS PJOPS? OPEN TO FIND OUT. Basically a competition of obscure songs from the ’90s, ’80s, ’70s, ’60s, ’50s, ’40s or earlier (if you can find a song from 1540 that fits the theme, go ahead and submit it!) If you have a song you’d like us all to hear, now’s the time to do it – everyone who submits a song will vote on the other songs submitted. Here’s a run-down of how it works: 1. PM your entry to me with a link to it on a platform that will allow us all to be able to listen to it (YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion are all good starting points). 2. Keep your fingers crossed that the veto panel doesn't reject your entry. If your song is vetoed, return to step 1 and try again. 3. Once the song list is posted, listen to all the songs and decide on your top 10 in order. Award points to these in a Eurovision-style fashion (i.e. 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 points, with 12 points going to your favourite song) and PM me your scores. You only need to send through the top 10. Anything that doesn’t make your top 10 will automatically get a zero. 4. Log in for the reveal and find out whether your song flops or smashes! What kind of songs can I send this time around? The usual PJOPS rules apply: The song must have been released before 01.01.2000. 2. The song must not be by a huge act that we discuss a lot on the forum (so no Madonna deep cuts, please – although you could get away with a Vanessa Williams deep cut) and it must not be a song that was well-known or a major hit (so please don’t submit the Macarena just because Los Del Rio doesn’t have its own thread). Click here for list of previous entries to give you an idea. In addition, entries must match this contest’s theme. Since my ”imagination” isn't very big compared to some of you... Let's go with a splendid suggestion from @ModeRed: You heard right – album tracks only! This means that all singles are disqualified, including promo singles. B-sides, you say? Not disqualified per se... only if they weren't on a studio album to begin with. And no, being included on a modern day re-issue or boxset won't cut it. So what do I need from you? Except bribes, a PM containing: Your artist and song A link to where the song can be heard And I'd also appreciate a link to the song's album - https://www.discogs.com/ works great For the sake of full transparency: as usual I'm on the veto panel and we will hold all our conversations behind closed doors. IMPORTANT DATES: Deadline for voting is midnight Friday September 1, with the reveal happening on Saturday night. Any questions and/or comments will be handled by the customer service department.
