Howdy all! We've been planning on starting off a song contest here in this little forum where we can celebrate tracks from the 90s and before. We really like the way the dance forum theme theirs and are intending to steal with pride from them and adopt that approach to the ones we hold here.

The idea will be that we hold 3 or 4 a year so it doesn't become too much but we thought it would have an angle that none of the other song contest currently target so we're hoping that it will interest you enough to take part.

For starters I've decided to pop a few potential themes in the poll above and we can run with whichever gets the most votes!

Hope you like the idea, feel free to make any suggestions in the thread if you have any ideas or comments x


ALSO - should you have any ideas for the title of the song contest then please do share!

I just picked some choices and thought it best not to make it too dance heavy... others can be included - plus I'm thinking after the opening round that the winner could choose the next theme, like the dance forum one.

Voted for new romantics because I love the 1981-1982 period of the charts!

Ooh, I’d be up for this, basically anything except 90s R&B and britpop (sorry Matt) but mostly 80s biggrin.gif What about disco too? dance.gif

Tracks (Trax)? To The Future would be my name suggestion btw kink.gif

This is a great idea. I would like to enter more retro songs in the BJSC but I don't think they would do very well so I can use them in this contest instead.

I chose 80s synths, Never had a number 1, New Romantics and Should have been a single for the vote. 70s rock would be a good theme.

Will this be an anonymous contest?

Yes it will be anonymous, I think it adds to the fun if you're not quite sure who sent what.

This seems like a good idea, as has been mentioned I would love to send more retro stuff to BJSC so this could be ideal. 80's Cheese, 80's Synth or Electronica would be my vote.

I voted for all the options except 90s R&B and 80s cheese! Would be great fun especially as I've been delving into a lot of retro music lately *.*

I'd be up for any of those really! (possibly not 90s R'n'B, sorry for being generic x), is there a reason is has to be those certain years for dance?

Anything that allows me to sneak in city pop on a technicality please and thank you (80s synths or cheese should do that, depending on the pick). Though I'm expecting some of these themes would lend themselves more to well-known-ish songs, maybe not ones that are regularly played anymore.
