Firstly - WELCOME BACK TO BOARDS!! MORE IMPORTANTLY TO FORUM GAMES!!
It appears to be my turn for Surlaw and I had an idea while I was on holiday last week. In the midst of creating a massive playlist for our 4 hour journey from Sligo to Cork, I kept thinking to myself.. which song is my favourite? How would I rank this playlist from first to last? The more I thought about it the more I figured it could work out as a fun game! So… YOU’RE all going to do it for me 😝
I slammed 100 songs onto the playlist for the holidays. In parting from normal Surlaw fashion I’m going to run this as a top 100 countdown, from first to last with my own vote splitting any ties.
100 SONGS NECRO? I hear you say, am I mental? Well yes, but that’s beside the point. You don’t HAVE to listen to all 100 songs – indeed, 100 songs of the Necro family’s choice might be more akin to torture for some of you… you don’t have to, but you can if you want. If so, rank each track out of 10 and send me the list when done. Don’t forget the bonuses…
If you don’t have the time just send me (via PM of course) a top 10 of yours, but don’t forget about the little bonuses I’ll add in to sweeten the pot…
Seal of Approval - You can select TWO tracks to give the golden seal of approval to. Each of these tracks will receive ELEVEN points each.
Golden Raspberry – You might look through that list and dislike some of the songs… but there could be one you absolutely want to kill with fire. Just name the track (via PM) and it will deduct 5 points from the track’s overall total points.
It’s a big ask from y’all but hopefully it will garner some interest. Naturally such a list is intimidating BUT… most songs are fairly popular and I expect you will have heard a lot at one point in time so may not require as much work as you think… I’ll be leaving entries open for at least 3 weeks until we see how entries are progressing.
Spotify Playlist for your pleasure - https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0EoYwvZlhx5oql7IDtqdOD?si=3ee60b40c8054a2e
Youtube playlist here: Holiday Choons - YouTube
And the full track listing from beginning to end of playlist
There's no way to quote a section of a post...
So: "Sing Street - Drive It Like You Stole It"
ETA: and "Kyla La Grange - Vampire Smile" :)
I'm going on holiday tomorrow and have a 4 hour drive from Dublin to Achill... I think I just found my playlist :)
Make a youtube playlist and I'm in 😉
Holiday Choons - YouTube
Your wish is my command
Now that there's a YouTube playlist and I don't have to ruin my Spotify Recommendations algorithm with some of those monstrosities (I spotted Baby "f**king" Shark on that list), I'll have a listen and do some ranking and rating over the next few weeks. 😉
14 songs missing from the youtube playlist
Never participated in a surlaw before, I'm in. 🤗
Hmmm, maybe I'll finally dive into one of these...
yippy..found my way back to here...got l9st in the newness...I will give it a go....promise... x fingers...eerrmh to give votes above 5 this time!
Could we mix and match the 1raspberry and 2 golden seals...like give 2 raspberrys at minus 11 each and 1 golden seal plus 5 or something similiar...hehe...might be best to leave that idea for another time! 😆
Thanks Necro looking foward to the listening to a nice mix of songs.
Fixed - I used a converter that missed a few. Stupid converter. Slightly out of order but it doesn't really matter
Edit: fixed it to the order in OP anyways cos I'm pedantic like that 😂
i've 'bookmarked' this thread so will get to it over the weekend.
prob (most likely) wont get through the 100 (are you mad?), but will get you a list.
was looking out for sinead o'connor or mariah carey to give the minus points to!
Top 10 is fine if you don't have a chance to rank all 100. Don't forget your seals of approval and Golden Raspberry though 😁
If I can figure out how exactly to get 'in' that is 🧐..
I forgot about this, and I even listened to the playlist driving to Achill (Mr CJ was not impressed with some of the songs, one in particular I think he wanted to throw the phone out the window :D )
Is it still open for entries?
😂 Sounds like my work here is done. Yes, definitely taking entries still I only have 4 so far....
Finally got my pm in
