PJSC 85: Best of the 2010s (decade playlist up!)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by soratami, Nov 24, 2019.

    Welcome everyone to PJSC 85. With this being the last round of the decade, and PJSC itself getting close to being a decade old, I thought it'd be interesting to have a "best of the 2010s" theme, but with a PJSC filter. But before we get to that, here are the main contest details, rules and dates:

    The Main Contest

    Popjustice Song Contest is a music contest focused on discovering new music, each participant picks a song by a lesser known artist or new discovery and pits this song against other unknown or new songs.

    The song you have chosen should be submitted to the host of the contest during the submission period, during this time the veto panel will score your song out of 100 (0 being instant veto, 100 being no issues) if it averages 50+ then it will be accepted into the contest. See veto guidelines here and previously entered songs here.

    After the song list is revealed you have period of time where you are able to submit your votes, you should vote using the traditional Eurovision style points system (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) with the top marks going to your favorite, and 1 going to your 10th favorite, and remember you cannot vote for your own entry.

    Entry: November 24th - December 4th 23:59 GMT
    Voting: December 5th - December 20th 23:59 GMT
    Reveals: December 21st 19:00 GMT

    Submit your song HERE.

    Now for the theme:

    During this round (until the end of the voting period), PM me your five favourite PJSC songs ever, and make sure they meet the following criteria:

    1. Songs released in the 2010s
    2. Songs that received at least 13 points (to ensure only songs at least two people voted for and avoid troll entries)
    3. Only songs available on Spotify
    4. You can choose your own entries, but make sure at least one of your picks was entered by someone else
    If any of your favourites don't meet these criteria, feel free to PM them to me anyway and they'll still get an honourable mention.

    By the end of the round we'll have ourselves a big PJSC decade retrospective playlist.

    Keep in mind, this is not meant to be a competition to see which songs gets picked the most. Take your time and please try to honestly pick your five favourites. You can see the full list of PJSC songs here, and find information on the various rounds here.

    Feel free to spotlight all your faves and post FYC lists through the round!
