Music Board Battle

The Management Team have declared war between the music boards to find out which music artist/band stands out the most and the [board name] is participating!

For the next month you can discuss which songs you would like to submit for each of the categories. 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. Please note: 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 Festive Song categories.

At the end of the month I will set up polls so that everyone can vote for their favourite song in each category. The winners of each category will then go on to compete in a final round to determine our ultimate winner.

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

The Categories:
• Best Love Song
• Best Break-up Song
• Best Ballad
• Best Debut Song
• Best Single
• Best Song Not Released as a Single
• Best Empowering Song
• Best Fan Favourite Song
• Best Festive Song
• Best Cover Song
• Best Collaboration
• Best Music Video
• Best Use of Colour in a Music Video
• Best Use of Special Effects in a Music Video
• Best Concept Music Video

When 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. I would appreciate it if you use the following format:
Quote:
Category Name: [URL=LINK TO SONG]Song Name[/URL]

E.G. Best Debut Song: Chasing Pavements
Your Submissions:
Moderators please add in the final song choices here by September 30th.

• Best Love Song - Smile
• Best Break-up Song - All that She Wanted
• Best Ballad - Alone
• Best Debut Song - Dangerous
• Best Single - Katie
• Best Song Not Released as a Single - Birth of the Blues
• Best Empowering Song - Every Man Thinks God Is On His Side

For love songs there are so many to chose from that I don't know what to pick. I'll get back to it when I'm a little more awake.

I certainly second All that she Wanted for breakup song. and the Cowboy ballad Birth of the Blues is so good too!

But I think the festive song was supposed to be one tied to one or another festivity. Like a Christmas song or the like. There's a discussion on that on the mod board.


Will come back with more song suggestions when I can make up my mind

Oh, James has never done anything remotely like a holiday song. That may be a category we have to skip.

Best Love Song...London City is adorable, but I think I'd sooner vote for Smile.
• Best Break-up Song-All that she wanted
• Best Ballad-The Cowboy Song
• Best Debut Song - Dangerous
• Best Single - Katie
• Best Song Not Released as a Single - Birth of the Blues
• Best Empowering Song- White Hot Girls
• Best Fan Favourite Song - that's a hard one. There's so many. But Runaway (No Promises) is great.
• Best Cover Song- I dont know. Havent heard him on a cover song, I think.
• Best Collaboration- I think a collobaration needs to be with someone he doesnt normally work with. DO we have any of those?

Only one possible is the song he wrote about his teenage friends (Button Down Vandals) ...I'm not sure if he wrote that alone or collaborated with the guy who he says grew up to be a lawyer. I'll see if I can find out for sure.

https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?...&hsimp=yhs-001

Here he says he wrote it with Gordon Hart.

It's not written collaboration it is about. It's a category for collaborative performance.

Well, then James has never sung with anyone not in his band to my knowledge. So we are out of luck there.
