THIS IS THEIR BEST SONG! - Music Draft - Saturday Night's Alright for iFighting

As discussed in the other thread, the basic idea is this:

  • Every band/artist in the world is eligible to be drafted but,
  • Once one of their songs is taken, they are off the board for everyone!

BEST in this instance is whatever you want it to be. It does not have to be a song that is generally regarded to be their best by the public. In other words, HOT TAKES are welcome.

The purpose of these drafts, generally for me anyway, is to generate discussion and hear new music, so if in your opinion the best/your favourite song by an artist is a deep cut, by all means go ahead and pick it. If there is a band that you have a very strong opinion about their best song, better grab it early before someone else does.

THEMES/MIXES/SHTICK as always are welcome but not necessary.

This draft will be both very deep (because at the start every song in existence is available to be picked) but also scarcity will be a factor with every one only able to be picked first - so you'll need to get your favourites early.

----

In terms of timing, we'll do sign up tomorrow and potentially a slow start Friday and threw the weekend where it will be open to latecomers and then we'll pick up the pace next week.

I think this all makes sense but if there are issues/questions/raise them below, it's entirely possible I haven't fully thought this through.

We will determine number of rounds and things like that when we have a better idea of who is in.

Also in.

I assume that the same person in different bands is okay.  So some Wings star will likely get picked.

 

If someone picks Denny Laine  I'll burn this mother####er down.

What about a solo artist formerly from one group/band singing a duet with a solo artist formerly from another group/band?

This is probably where the line gets drawn. 

Also different backing bands, etc.. do not constitute an entirely new band - looking at you @Pip's Invitation

just starting looking at potential artists/songs ...wow - I really think we need to break this into separate drafts by decade.  So much out there - and it would make for a lot better and cohesive mix lists.  

request input.

ETA:  AND we get to reuse the artist in each decade if applicable - again ...much better mixes.

ETA 2:  AND possibly allow each drafter one or two veto/revotes on others picks of best song a particular artist.  Multiple requests to veto could be tie-broken through some set of rules the nerds could come up with.

I love ya, Bink, but I disagree with all of this. This should (and needs to) be a bloodbath. If, as I suspect, the "random" (I think Eephus doesn't like me when he slots these draft orders) dice stick me somewhere between you, weasel, landry's hat, krista, and simey.

Yeah, what he is calling for is too complicated IMO. I like the concept of having just one artist/band and one song choice only.

I think I know what simey's doing if she picks before me in the first round.

I have never participated in any of these drafts...but if I can pick any song of a band that I think is their best, then I would like to try.

IN :yes:  

 

You can- unless that band has already been drafted. Once someone drafts a song by a band/artist, they are done for the entire draft.

I don't even know what I'm doing. All I know is that I have a few targets  🎯
