    Welcome to Boardsies Greatest Original Song tournament

    Following on from the greatest cover song I ran last year which was won by Nirvana - The man who sold the world, will we see the David Bowie version here?

    Qualifying round will consist of 12 matches
    Each match will consist of 3 songs with only going on to round 1
    1 best second place song will also go through, a play-off will be held if needed.

    Round 1 will consist of 128 songs and further info will be announced before each round.

    Best of luck to all songs and I hope we all have fun and find something new.

    Good morning Kolido!

    I will vote for:
    Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes - Don't Leave Me This Way

    It is one of the songs initially in my top-20 selection, but didn't make the final cut

    John Michael Montgomery - I Swear
    • Didn't know All-4-One was a cover :p
    • Really like the famous version
    • ...and this stood up to that well

    Those three facts together are the point of this tournament for me, so it gets my vote

    ...but just for clarity, it's a terrible song :D
