PJOPS 42 - The Fan Demanded Vanilla Round

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by soratami, Nov 2, 2018.

    No themes, side themes or gimmicks.
    No games, altered rules or special restrictions.
    No additivies, preservatives or artificial colourants.
    Just 100% pure PJOPS vanilla, imported straight from Madagascar.

    We're going back to basics with this round, so let's just quickly review the basic rules:
    Submitted songs have to have been released before 2000, and they can't be UK/US Top 20 hits, or have been entered in a previous round of PJOPS or PJSC.
    Aside from that, it's up to the veto panel to decide. Speaking of which, the panel just became that much more aristocratic, as we welcome Empress @Filippa of Austria into it, joining @Baby Clyde, @KamikazeHeart and myself for this round.

    As usual, just PM me your song of choice along with a link to it (such as on Youtube or Spotify) to participate.

    Dates:
    Entry - from 02/11 to 16/11
    Voting - from 17/11 to 08/12
    Reveal - 09/12​

  3. To enter a foreign language bop or ballad or an English language midtempo - decisions decisions....
     
  4. Just submitted my entry, now let’s hope I don’t get vetoed and @Riiiiiiiii didn’t beat me to it hehehe
     
  5. I'd say... foreign language bop > English midtempo > foreign language ballad

    You're in luck as no-one beat you to it!

  6. Hmm...a vanilla round.....songs about ice creams.....or just ice.....or maybe...

     
  7. I'm glad vanilla won.

    Now... to pick a song I like best, or one that I like not quite as much but which will probably do better. The dilemma.

    There’s no rule against them. The Youssou song from last round was a remix, wasn’t it?

    What did vanilla ever do to deserve this?
     
  14. Unfortunately I suspect my favourite Daniel O'Donnell song would be vetoed for being a moderate UK top 20 smash hit:



    Daniel O'Donnell is what they invented dancin' for….

  16. He's a lyrical poet…just in case you didn't know it.
     
  17. Ok, but if we were talking ice cream flavours, vanilla, lemon and coffee are literally the bottom three.
     
  18. It was the single version, which was a totally different 'mix' to the other versions of the track.
