PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Results are starting!)

    Now that's how you open a show.

    After (too) many a days, we've come to the point of a new song contest – for old pre-shit music. That is, the song you submit has to have been released before the year 2000 since we all know music took a turn for the worse after December 31st 1999.

    The theme for the occasion, you ask? We will be taking on songs that open the album they originated from. Song 1, if you will. It doesn't have to be from a "regular" studio album; if the song originated from a compilation, it's perfectly okay to submit. Opening tracks from EPs are okay as well.

    I, uh, think that covers the theme.

    PM your submissions to me, and the veto panel will decide if it fits all the criteria. Including the important rule just below the headline Important Rules.

    Important Rules (stolen from prev. contest, who stole them from the one before, and so on...)

    - Don't send very well known songs from very well know artists, don't play sneaky with me by trying to submit unknown songs from very well known artists, also not allowed* You'll get a PM back if or when you song has been vetoed, you’re then allowed to send another song as long as it’s before the deadline. If you’re not sure your song met the requirements, you can always send a back-up song along. I’ll post and update a pass/veto list in the first page throughout the submission time.

    - When submission closes, we’ll get to voting, Eurovision style.*

    12 points (Your Favorite)
    10 Points
    8 Points
    7 Points
    6 Points
    5 Points
    4 Points
    3 Points
    2 Points
    1 Point (Least Favorite out of your favorites)

    You’re basically making a top ten from all the entries. DON’T VOTE FOR YOUR OWN SONG.

    - Don’t reveal your song until I reveal them and don’t talk about your votes until the contest is over.

    - We all know the drill, if you manage to win the whole damn contest, you’ll get to host the next one. If you can’t, or simply don't want to, you can always pass the baton on to the runner up and so on.

    Schedule (I'm working 20 hours overtime in May, so bear with if this ends up being slightly fluid):

    Submission: May 8 – May 18
    Voting: May 18 – May 30 (This is a Saturday)
    Results: May 31 (This is a Sunday)

    I wanted this to be a fairly liberal round, but not completely themeless. Hopefully this is a balance that will please most of you – it'll be interesting to see what people come up with.

    Love it. If I end up entering what I think I'm going to enter, this should be fun.

    I'm ready.
     
  7. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Entered! I'm tired of thinking about what people will actually like, I'm just going to do something stupid. (Still love it though.)
     
  8. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Ha, just as I had an instrumental and a sampled track lined up as choices. I like this theme though!
     
  9. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Elated to discover the song I've been sitting on for four contests at least kicks of the album it's from! In my head it's my best chance to win ever, but that means it will flop hard. I've never been able to predict OPS or PJSC for myself although I'm able to guess the PJSC winner a lot of the time. This one's always a wild card though!
     
  10. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    I've got a few ideas….will give it some thought before I start submitting!
     
  11. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    I've jumped in with my gut-feeling choice.
     
  12. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Let's revisit some slightly too famous opening tracks to be entered for inspiration:

  13. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Plenty of entries in! Keep them coming!

    Now, how to launch a career:

    Rather happy with my entry, hopefully it will pass veto!
     
  15. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    I'm obsessed with my entry at the moment. But then, I usually am, with varied results...
     
  16. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Gah! Everyone knows track 3 is where it's at!

    Also, if your album has a crappy intro for under a minute, can I skip that and pretend the first proper track counts as track 1 or is that twisting the rules too much?
     
  17. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Dang, this theme isn't really helping me to choose from my embarrass de richesses -- it turns out 9 songs out of my 12 first-choice gems are actually album-starters... So thanks for nothing Kamikaze, haha!

    This is one I can enter with the proposed dates! Yay!
     
  19. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    I'm probably quite harsh here, but no, you can't pretend an intro track doesn't exist.
     
  20. Re: PJOPS XIX – Wanna be startin' somethin' (Submissions open!)

    Another great opener that's too well known. If you know me this should be no surprise.
