Welcome to the INAUGURAL season of my new game:

ARBITRARY SONG CONTEST!

 

Inspired by this sections' "love" of song sending games, Arbitrary Song Contest flips the concept on its head, with each round asking for songs that fit a series of three completely arbitrary criteria. So while other games ask the contestants for broad themes, or others lack the budget to have all the letters, this game is completely random in the hopes that it can spur some creativity and surprises in the entries.

 

HOW IT WORKS

The rules are straightforward, each round will have three pieces of random criteria. Your entries (sent to me either via PM or Discord) must satisfy all criteria. Once entries are posted anonymously, you will give each song a proper chance, provide comments in the thread and send me your ranking. Ranks will assign scores to each entry resulting in a combined average across all participants, and each round the lowest scorers will be eliminated.

 

As an example, a round may ask for a song that (1) has a female vocalist, (2) has only one word as the title, and (3) was released after 2016. I could send "Bags" by Clairo (and win the round obviously).

 

When you send your entry (again, via PM or Discord), you must make sure it satisfies ALL criteria. You can send the name alone or send a streaming link if you have a specific version in mind. I will confirm if the entry is yours. Once I have all entries and no one wants to switch anymore, I will post the entries in the thread so that contestants can listen and share comments. You will then send your ordered list to me privately, blah blah blah.

 

As this is a parody of song sending games, you must post comments in the thread.

Failure to do so continuously will result in me arbitrarily halving your score~

RULES...?

Like the title says there's no real "rules", criteria can and will be completely arbitrary/random.

However I am instating two special notes:

 

1. There will be a banned list.

Any song sent will automatically be put on this list, and any artist sent 2x in the game will be added to the banned artists list. 

 

2. Winners of a round will get a special perk

The winner of each round can send me a suggestion for one of the three criteria for the following round. I may put a spin on it, but I'll use your general idea.

 

Also CPGs cannot exist in this game so don't be annoying

 

 

SO SIGN UP!!! AND HAVE FUN.

This is a casual game so enjoy yourself and send fun bops
