It's time for our 2019 Winter Music Showdown!

We're going to do 64 songs this time around. This should mean everyone will get 3, depending on how many people submit. PLEASE be sure to number your tracks in the order you prefer them in case we get more than 21 people and need to cut any. If I require fourth picks at all, I will ask for them; please do not give me a fourth until then. We're going to stick with the same rules as last time.

Rules:

1. Up to THREE nominations per person. Rank your picks on the off chance we have to cut any so your preferred one gets to stay for sure. I will let you know if we need additional songs and it will be on a first come first serve basis. You can have less than three if you prefer.

2. The song must be available on Youtube (potential leeway on this if you can provide something that is linkable, legal, free to access and won't go down during the course of the contest).

3. Please PM me your nomination with a link to the song

4. I reserve the right to reject a song if I think it is too universally adored. We want personal choices and the contest is as much about hearing new music as opposed to determining the best. A good guide is the rule of only songs with no wikipedia page. Possible exceptions to this due to wikipedia's oddities. I will also reject any songs that have previously been used in the showdown, or could be used in our VGM showdown.

5. No songs from the top fifty of NHC's most recent top 100 albums list. This will help prevent anything too popular here at NHC from being part of the showdown.

6. Keep your nomination a secret, it makes it more fun at the end!


If you would like to sign up, please indicate in this thread. I will need your nominations by about 3pm eastern time on January 13 (Sunday). Looking forward to hearing some new tunes!

I need to hear from the following people about their picks. There's still more than a day left, so everyone still has time to send in their picks or sign up if they haven't already.

Most of you have sent me your picks. Just two of you haven't. I'd like to get this started in the next day or so. If I haven't heard from you by then, I'm going to fill the extra spots with tracks from [MENTION=56353]deadname[/MENTION] who already has a couple ready. ANYWAY. [MENTION=45949]The Spruce Moose[/MENTION] [MENTION=46441]Insomnia[/MENTION] get on it plz and thx
