No need to have the tournament, this wins it.



Count me in, though, this sounds fun.

I mean, I'm fine with someone else running it. I just want it to get started, as I hate the offseason and need something else to occupy my time.
You must have missed what happened in his rap tourney. He got mad and started yelling at everyone for who they were voting for. I don't think it lasted a full round.

Ah. Yeah, I skipped the rap tourney entirely. I hate rap music - by far my least liked genre, and that includes gospel.

After you rubes voted We Built This City over Tomorrow Never Knows in the first round of the Best Song Tourney I quit caring.

So mods... is this on like Donkey Kong? If so, tonight I can post a new thread with "official" rules/entry guidelines. I figure give a few days for users to PM me with their songs, and then I can try to get the bracket developed/seeded this weekend, and officially start the voting early next week.

Sounds like a plan, Swirls. Thanks for doing this. Let us know if you have any questions.

I kind of want to do a thread of "probably not the best cover ever" and just have people share cool ones. I just discovered Usher fronted the Afghan Whigs at a few shows in 2013 and produced this amazing cover of the Whigs' "Somethin Hot":



But I've got my actual entry ready and will submit immediately.
