Confirmed! Please don't veto it.

Posted by: gooddelta Jul 12 2019, 09:13 AM

So hard to pick this month, I have five I'd love to send, three of which are my anthems of the summer so far. Just gone for the one that I've played the most, which is a Swiss sizzler!

Posted by: Mart!n Jul 12 2019, 09:55 AM

Sent... I'm going for a summer electro-indie track, its so sweet and pretty damn catchy. biggrin.gif enough said. This is the track I was toying with sending previously instead of sending Lola Blanc

Posted by: TheJüpreme Jul 12 2019, 10:24 AM

I'm fully expecting a veto but worth a try :')

Posted by: LexC Jul 12 2019, 11:05 AM

New Lexico is back back back again. Submitted something I don't see being all that competitive but I completely love it!

Posted by: Chez Wombat Jul 12 2019, 11:13 AM

So I will be around for the semis of this at least, hooray. Gone with a beautiful Japanese Post-rock/Orchestral song feat. some reliable favourites of mine wub.gif

Posted by: King Rollo Jul 12 2019, 11:20 AM

I'm confirming something from the 70s so this will be the oldest song I have entered.

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Jul 12 2019, 11:40 AM

Entered some rock-rap!

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Jul 12 2019, 12:40 PM

I reckon I could have a good guess at that tongue.gif

Posted by: danG Jul 12 2019, 01:13 PM

I found this song which would've been perfect for Club Bizarre vol.8 just recently but too late to confirm it there, so I think I'll enter that.

It's the closest you'll ever get to a metal Danæviia entry.

Posted by: dobbo Jul 12 2019, 01:15 PM

Not us both going for metal-like entries in the same contest!

Posted by: Iz~ Jul 12 2019, 02:50 PM

excellent *.

An artist I quietly stan has just released a great new song that's quite perfect for this month... so I'm entering that one.

Posted by: Harve Jul 12 2019, 04:43 PM



Teaser.

Posted by: lewistgreen Jul 12 2019, 05:47 PM

After a brief break we’re going back to dance. Gone for some CamelPhat vibes.

One for fans of Wardruna ~ (so pls be nice to me random.org)

Posted by: linds Jul 12 2019, 08:40 PM

seperate me and bray in the semis pls

Posted by: Leonardo Jul 12 2019, 08:50 PM

Bit stumped this month, hoping the AQ will fall my way cos I’ve gone for a Kyrgyz bop which’ll probably DNQ normally.

Posted by: Leonardo Jul 12 2019, 08:55 PM

Nevermind, found an old K-Pop potential which’ll probably be more appropriate for this contest, will save the Kyrgyz one for a future contest.

Posted by: travis Jul 13 2019, 01:59 AM

First veto coming in hot this contest!



Kim Petras - Icy 17+
- artist came 26th in BJSC 100 and 1st in BJSC 102 12+5
- probably has more veto points
- no one try to send Kim Petras again, you can do better than this x

Posted by: Riser Jul 13 2019, 03:15 AM

Ooooh an Aesthetica-hosted contest!! Unfortunately I'm 50/50 on entering this one as I'll be away for most of it and don't have a song in mind anyway. Are there tentative dates for the semis and final?

Posted by: Bré Jul 13 2019, 09:59 AM

Hey my last 3 entries were all fairly short. This one is shorter than one of this year's winners, y'all can survive it xx

Posted by: King Rollo Jul 13 2019, 10:08 AM

I am looking forward to hearing your song,Bre. Long songs are much more adventurous than short ones.

Posted by: linds Jul 13 2019, 10:14 AM

i dont have anything against long songs i just can't be arsed listening to them in a contest of 40+ songs, i barely have the attention span to get through an entire semi as it is never mind when there's songs that last 2/3 times the length of most of the other ones kink.gif

Posted by: PeteFromLeeds Jul 13 2019, 10:48 AM

I'll only listen to a couple of minutes of a long song when going through, that's why plug irritates me a bit when I have to sit through a song which is basically the same for 10 minutes.

Posted by: coi Jul 13 2019, 10:50 AM

I'll always sit through the whole song, it's only fair in my view!

Posted by: dobbo Jul 13 2019, 11:15 AM

Great time to disclose that I'm sending my longest ever entry, after breaking that particular record numerous times already in the past 10 instalments.

Posted by: Chez Wombat Jul 13 2019, 11:37 AM

If you don't listen to the whole thing, you miss the pay off! The best types of long songs are building up to a wow moment.

I mean are you telling me this isn't worth the full time?



(kink.gif)

Posted by: dobbo Jul 13 2019, 11:54 AM

3 years on & I'm still waiting for the wow moment^ laugh.gif

Posted by: danG Jul 13 2019, 12:02 PM

I may as well also disclose that my entry is longer than... half of 'Emerald Princess'. tongue.gif

Posted by: coi Jul 13 2019, 12:09 PM

It probably is a good time to disclose that my entry comes just short of six and a half minutes.

Posted by: 5 Silas Frøkner Jul 13 2019, 12:11 PM

Not the tallest guy here coming in to tell you that short is beautiful.


Just confirmed a 3:18 slice of Deutschepop perfection

Posted by: *Tim Jul 13 2019, 12:19 PM

Any entry over 5 minutes is skipped after 30 seconds if it hasnt grabbed me, I ain't suffering through y'alls shit taste.

Posted by: Klimawechsel Jul 13 2019, 12:23 PM

Reminder of one of the very few long songs that's worth the duration (plus some satisfying visuals):



unsure if I'll enter this contest, my potentials aren't very inspired currently and I my attention span barely made it through the last one.

Posted by: Klaus Jul 13 2019, 12:28 PM

If the song is actually doing something interesting (like say Emerald Princess), I’ll of course listen to it all.

I will never listen to 10 minutes of the same 3 second loop though, with it maybe changing up to add a different 4 second loop around the halfway mark. I’ll listen to a minute and keep skipping ahead until something has changed.

Posted by: Liаm Jul 13 2019, 12:32 PM

Dunno if I will enter either (not because of long songs xx), don't really have any potentials unless I dig through old ones I never quite ever liked enough to send in the past sad.gif

As for long songs, I don't sit through them all if I don't like them after a couple of minutes, my attention span isn't what it used to be for BJSC and I'm not wasting 10 minutes listening to a song that goes nowhere. Sometimes I skip through to see if it changes later on but ngl most of the time they don't justify their length. Idc if it's "not fair", if I dislike a 3 or 4 minute song I tend not to listen to it all either lmao

Posted by: Bré Jul 13 2019, 01:34 PM

Tbh I think I'm actually gonna make a quick Audacity snip of my song and cut off about the last 3 minutes anyway so that's a bit of a reprieve to anyone on plug.dj who hates long songs xx Not because I think the song is too long (it's not even my longest entry as it stands x) but just every time I listen to it I always think there's a bit a little bit before the end of the song that sounds like it would be a more satisfying / natural place for the song to end. Also the vocals in those last few minutes are very different to the rest of the song and... a bit more of an acquired taste ~

(I did have this same debate with myself when I sent Saor but ultimately didn't do that mainly because the harsher vocals were harder to snip out without it being very obvious that it was badly edited lol)

I don't think this will make the song appeal any more to the types of people who generally don't like long songs though so by all means still skip it if you want to. I tried to send something more widely appealing last contest and it failed spectacularly which is part of the reason that I'm gravitating to something much more niche this time kink.gif

Posted by: Popchartfreak Jul 13 2019, 02:14 PM

long songs can be fabulous, but there has to be a reason for the length, mood changes, stylistic variations, building to a climax, telling a story, etc all are acceptable reasons. The same thing on a loop for 8 minutes, though, isn't hypnotic or a groove, it's lazy tongue.gif I'll take 3 short fab songs instead.

Maybe I'll enter the whole of Tubular Bells one day, it's just one track for the whole album, that'll sort out who REALLY is prepared to sit and listen to a long song laugh.gif

(The single edit is perfect though, and cuts out the faffing about)

Posted by: danG Jul 13 2019, 02:18 PM

Tubular Bells already did get entered, to the Halloween spin-off and won! tongue.gif (though it was a shortened edit, around 4-5 minutes)

Posted by: linds Jul 13 2019, 02:42 PM

yea like if a song is 7 minutes long but doesnt feel like it because its interesting and actually has a point to being that long then fair dos but if im bored before it even gets to the "good part" then whats the point

Posted by: FrankLuck Jul 13 2019, 03:12 PM

What's the point in sending a 12-minute entry if I can't force EVERYONE to sit the whole thing through?? sad.gif

Posted by: Riser Jul 13 2019, 04:06 PM

For the record I was only joking, not trying to discourage anyone from their song choice.

Posted by: Cody Season Jul 13 2019, 05:03 PM

I once entered a 9 minute track, I guess it works in some ways if the track grabs your attention from the start.

Anyone remember this 8 mins 53 secs

For now I've confirmed something that I've found myself loving this year, sounds vaguely summery and I doubt it will appeal to many at all but I'm stuck for anything else.

It being a sort-of FLJ recycle is the only reason I didn't send this song myself the other month! (but then had it not been for recognising the artist via your previous entry of theirs, I'd probably have not even listened to it)

I was wondering whether to give this month a miss as I'm rather busy atm, but my list of songs I want to enter is rather long. That means I don't really want to miss an opportunity to enter one of them laugh.gif Therefore, the Suedeonian entry (about 3 1/2 minutes long) is in.

In general nothing is technically safe until the semis go up so it's always best to have some kind of backup plan if you think your song might be vetoed. (Your song this time is fine if you were worried about that!)

There'll be 1 more veto coming through today but hopefully that'll be it pending the final day confirmations, a pleasingly inspired bunch of songs this month x

~

Currently at 53 entries, the following countries who entered last time have not yet entered this one:

Cadelicia
Florina
Greenfroze
Harmonica
Holland-Oats
Kluminican Republic
Lotunia
Ojnoj
Oslol
Republic of Adonia
Sandénia
Vülkyria

Posted by: Harve Jul 18 2019, 02:40 PM

My song is 3 years old but otherwise pretty uninspired/well known so the veto could be me oops.

Posted by: Bré Jul 18 2019, 03:15 PM

Not sure when Travis will be online again so to not delay any further this is the other veto xx

The Key Of Awesome - Hello
- Parody of Adele's "Hello". Similar situation to the Cheryl parody from previously that we got rid of. ***MOD DISCRETION***

wonder who sent this thinking.gif

Posted by: Vülker Jul 18 2019, 07:39 PM

Vülkyria has confirmed.

Foreign language folk-dance-pop. Fab.

if u know ur gonna get vetoed why send it??? the mods still need to take the time to research it and then do the same again with ur back up, just play it safe?

it doesn't seem v likely to be vetoed i don't think just from first glance!

I couldn't bring myself to sit a contest out so I've sent something last minute. Will be my third New Zealand entry this year!

Thought I already had entered 😅 confirmed a song now 🇲🇳

Buzzjack Mountain has gone for something very different to usual this time. It is hard to describe but here goes.... It is from the early 90s and is jazzy piano rock, I suppose, a little bit like Hue and Cry's classic Labour of Love in style we think, although it does sound a bit like piano house too in parts so has a little bit of a dance feel. Oh, and its also by quite a well known band.

SoundCloud seems to have made its auto-takedown bots smarter. Luckily it seems I can just upload to YouTube without buggering about with slightly changing the pitch/speed and the video stays up with the instant copyright claim just making it not monetisable (lol) so I have done that instead.

Trimmed my song down from 10:19 to a mere 5:51 x

In other news we have 60 entries now, 61 if Michael reconfirms (Meek has the power to decide if Quintessa get an AQ, or if they go through the semis but have 2 additional qualifying slots to compete for thinking.gif)

Yeah, exactly! That’s what I mean, that’s my role playing alignment. Obviously.

I was hoping to see them up too, its still exciting to see the big reveal even though I am familiar with less artists that are entered into contests when they are revealed than most people here.

Posted by: Mattias Jul 19 2019, 09:26 PM

I guess it's probably Travis' computer issues he mentioned.

travis hasn't been online since wednesday - we need the semis cry.gif

Posted by: Bré Jul 20 2019, 05:48 PM

I've been in contact with travis on Facebook and he said his laptop wasn't turning on last night oops.

Might need to go with the contingency plan if this isn't sorted soon thinking.gif

EDIT: semis should be up today!

Posted by: Cody Season Jul 20 2019, 06:51 PM

by Travis or by the contingency plan?

Posted by: Bré Jul 20 2019, 06:53 PM

By Travis x

If you were going to choose a Travis song there are so many better ones. biggrin.gif I prefer Side, Turn, Closer and especially Driftwood myself, there are plenty more too.

Posted by: King Rollo Jul 20 2019, 07:25 PM

I chose it because Bre was writing to reach him. tongue.gif

It's still a great song and my favourite of the Travis songs I know.
