    The Music World Cup

    This is just like what @hammster did, the only difference being that this time it's songs and not TV episodes. I'll lift most of the text from hammster's thread if he doesn't mind.

    Basically, each participant picks three music artists. The tournament starts with a group stage (hopefully groups of 4 but depends on interest), in which, each player plays everyone in their group once. The matches involve each player nominating a song from one of their 3 chosen artists. We then open it up for everyone to vote which song they prefer. The one with the most votes wins. In the group stage: a win is 3 points, a draw is 1 and a loss is 0. 2 players (might be different depending on how group size turns out) with the most points in the groups go through. After the groups, it is a knockout stage with the remaining players and a loss knocks you out. A draw will take us to a tiebreaker of some kind which will be determined when/if it comes up. To keep it varied, you can only pick a maximum of 2 songs from each artist that you choose in the course of the tournament.

    If you still don't get the rules, check this thread to try and understand it a bit more.

    So who wants to participate? I'll start.

    George Harrison
    Electric Light Orchestra
    Status Quo

    N Wilbury
    The Spruce Moose

    Yeah, any artist will do. As long as your chosen songs for said artists are on YouTube.

    So do we have to pick from our own native country, pick from 3 different countries or pick 3 from the same country? How does that work?

    As many as we can get. The minimum would be about 6.

    I'll start this thing when I'm free next, which will be tomorrow afternoon.

    But I'll put everyone in groups now. If you could PM me and tell me what your first choice of song is, it would be great.

    Group A: @N Wilbury @Judge Fudge @Shaunbadia @LoyalStonecutter

    Group B: @The Spruce Moose @The Thompsons @Prune Tracy @vriskatime
