2018 Music Board Battle!

Fan Forum Music Battle
The Management Team have declared war between the music boards to find out which songs stand out the most and the Carrie Underwood board is participating! For the next month you can discuss which songs you would like to submit for each of the categories.

When picking songs for the categories please keep in mind the following:
• The song you submit must be their own, and not be made famous by someone or something else. The only exceptions to this rule is the Cover Song and Song Written categories.
• All music videos must be official videos, not fan videos.
• You can enter as many of the categories as you like but it is only one song per category. A song can be entered into as many categories as you wish. Music boards for bands/groups (E.G. 1D) can submit up to three songs per category providing they are each from different members of the group (E.G. a song by 1D, a song by Harry, a song by Niall). If the band member/former band member (E.G. Camila Cabello) has their own board their solo work cannot be submitted on the band board and should only be submitted on their own board. Any duplicated submissions (E.G. two songs by Harry) will result in both being left off from the poll.

At the end of the month I will set up polls so that everyone can vote for their favourite song in each category.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask Chelle.



The Categories:
Songs
• Best Acoustic Version/Performance
• Best Break-up Song
• Best Collaboration
• Best Cover Song
• Most Empowering Song
• Best Live Performance
• Best Love Song
• Best Uptempo Song
• Songs From Stage and Screen
• Wild Card (any song you would like to submit which does not fit anywhere else but should be included)
Song Writing
• Best Chorus
• Best Line From a Song
• Best Song Written (by any member of the band, can be sung by anyone)
Music Videos
• Best Music Video
• Best Use of Black and White in a Music Video
• Best Concept Music Video



Once you have decided which song you would like to submit please provide a link to the song so that everyone can listen to it during the voting process. For song writing please include a link to the full lyrics for the Best Song Written category, and include the line or chorus in quotes for the Best Chorus and Best Line From a Song categories. I would appreciate it if you use the following format:
Quote:
Category Name: [URL=LINK TO SONG/LYRICS]Song Name[/URL]
Category Name: [QUOTE]lyrics/song line[/QUOTE]

E.G. Best Debut Song: Chasing Pavements

I don't know how you want to do this but I thought I'd post some suggestions



Songs
Best Break-up Song Before He Cheats (I think the board has used it before though)
Best Collaboration Remind Me (with Brad Paisley) or I Told You So (feat. Randy Travis)?
Most Empowering Song Play On? Its the first song which comes to mind for me that's empowering
Best Love Song Heartbeat
Best Uptempo Song Good Girl? Undo It? Renegade Runaway?
Songs From Stage and Screen Something from The Sound of Music? But not sure if we can get a video of any of that to use for it . We may have to go with her performance of "Hello, Young Lovers" from when she was on American Idol unless there also isn't a video of that
Song Writing
Best Chorus

Best Line From a Song So many to choose from

Best Song Written Cry Pretty?


I'd have to watch all of her music videos to make suggestions for them

I wish I was better for performances

I didn't even think of The Champion but that'd be good for collaboration & empowering . I definitely think it should be for the empowering category

Love your love song suggestion . Not as well known as Heartbeat probably either

there's too many good choices for uptempo

I think The Champion should go as Most Empowering, and Best Collaboration should be Remind Me. I love Brad and Carrie together!

There is also Oh Love with Brad which you could use for collaboration if you want something not as well known? Then Carrie has at least appeared on one other song but I prefer those two.

She has done a number of amazing performances, it is hard to pick. When I was suggesting for Kelly I automatically thought of one acoustic performance but for Carrie I think of a few and searching is giving me more options. Smoke Break, Church Bells, Two Black Cadillacs?
Then for performances: Blown Away, Just a Dream, Two Black Cadillacs?

Smoke Break would be good for Best Acoustic Performance!

I also agree with Cry Pretty as Best Song Written. And Good Girl for Best Uptempo Song.

Songs From Stage and Screen, does this mean songs from Soul Surfer or Sound of Music Live?

Any song which is from a movie/show or stage production . She sang one when she was on Idol & then we've got Sound of Music. I don't think she sung anything for Soul Surfer?

She sang a song during church in the movie, just before her emotional scene. Not sure that counts, but we have more choices with Sound of Music!

It sort of counts as its in a movie

I'm not sure if there's any videos from Sound of Music though. I did find this video of her singing The Sound of Music though
