Hey guys! so if you haven't already seen the topic in the artist forum hub, the inner circle are running a fun little game that's involving all the AFs ohmy.gif (check out the details here)

So the idea is that the mod team from each forum will discuss their song choices in private but since I am on my own over here, I've been allowed to set up this topic so I can hopefully get a bit of feedback from you guys on which songs you'd like to see represent us or the sort of strategy we should take. of course I'm not gonna give any indication of what song I'm gonna pick, you'll find that out when the polls go up angel.gif

so drop me a list of your fave songs or any you think would do well up against the other forums!!

I'm thinking we could kick things off with a single but there's loads to chose from with that even kink.gif

pretty sure the first poll goes up on Thursday so we need to have our choice in by the end of tomorrow x

'Brick By Boring Brick', 'That's What You Get' or 'When It Rains' for a more underrated song selection?

'Brick By Boring Brick' is honestly one of their finest moments - if it were to be up and go round one, I'll hold myself accountable x

'crushcrushcrush' or 'Ignorance' for purely selfish reasons kink.gif (although I think the latter in particular would do well)

paramore have so many underrated songs, especially from BNE but they've also got a load of hidden gems in their discography so I'd like to think we'd make it past round one so I can show a bit of that off

I've played it safe but not like OBVIOUSLY safe if u get me x

The suggestions are spot-on so far but I would add 'Hard Times' for consideration too, IIRC it did surprisingly well in Record of the Decade last year so it has its share of fans here! Just depends if those same people are going to be voting in this as well.

I would go for Still Into You or Hard Times - probably leaning towards HT.

round one is up! make sure you vote for Ignorance ohmy.gif

I was actually gonna go with Hard Times because I know there's some unlikely fans on the site but then I checked to see what the consensus was in here and although I didn't go with it (probably would have been Brick By Boring Brick) I thought it was worth switching to one if their rockier tracks from that era, Ignorance is more hard hitting and probs more known which is why i went with that.

if we make it to round 2 though I want to switch it up either with a poppier track (that's not Still Into You) or something that will be a discovery to a lot of people but see to be honest, because it's a poll and not a rank or voting thing I doubt people will even listen to the songs so we're probs best sticking to what's popular???

Yeah, any unfamiliar song would be at a disadvantage just due to the nature of how the game works.

Good luck Ignorance!!

I'm pleased that 'Ignorance' made it through but it still deserved way more votes sleep.gif

maybe something like 'Decode' soon? It seems familiar on the board due to the Twilight exposure and being entered to a BJSC spin-off! But isn't too obvious yet in these early stages. (also, TUNE)

maybe - I'd quite like to get the chance to send something from each album so maybe this or ain't it fun next?

'Decode' seems like a good shout for the reasons Jade gave or 'Ain't It Fun' as it's sort of similar to 'Hard Times' and possibly has even more fans than that (I don't really know what Paramore's popular songs are aside from the obvious but I know 'Hard Times' is a bit polarising, so if that can make 12th place then I figure 'Ain't It Fun' could potentially do better).

You'd probably get away with sending one of the big hitters though. The nature of this contest puts Paramore at a disadvantage so it's more a case of "how long can Paramore stay in the running for?" - if we assume all AFs up the stakes because of the triple elimination, sending something like 'Still Into You' is going to stand a better chance of competing. Then the following round you could go back to sending something less obvious.

I honestly think Still Into You should be saved for a later round as I think it could be more popular than Misery Business and since it is a triple elimination next round maybe Ain’t It Fun or The Only Exception would be great choices
