Hello everybody, welcome to the second ever edition of the Movie Forum Song Contest! cheer.gif

The inaugural contest was on the theme of Scores, with many different pieces of music sent forward, and the winning entry, albeit by a very fine margin, was sent by myself, as a famous piece from the classic 1990 movie Edward Scissorhands, by composer Danny Elfman;



For contest 2.0, I have selected as the theme Blockbusters.

A blockbuster can be defined as a “big budget” movie, usually with several A-list stars, that goes on to become very popular, perhaps achieving various honours and awards.

The challenge is to nominate a lesser known song from the movie’s soundtrack that you feel might perform well in a forum contest like this one. For the purpose of this contest, “lesser known songs” can be any song that charted below the official UK Top 20 chart, in any time period.

Here are some guidelines to assist in making your choices for this contest;
    1. A song must not have reached the Top 20 in the UK chart.
    2. An artist must not currently have an Artist Forum on BuzzJack.
    3. A song must not have been entered into a Movie Forum Song Contest previously.
    4. An artist will only get one entry per contest, so first come first served.
    5. A movie will only get one entry per contest, so first come first served.
    6. Vetoes may be given for any song that we feel is giving other songs an unfair advantage.
Confirmations must be sent to myself, awardinary, no later than Sunday 22nd August 2021 at 23:59 GMT. Please include the names of the artists, the song title, the blockbuster movie the song is taken from, and a link to a YouTube video. Once approved by the moderators, the confirmed list of entries will be posted soon after.

Happy searching! smile.gif

I have entered. I had a few ''competitive'' songs I toyed with, ended up going with an all time favourite which SHOULD be an all time classic, but due to shenanigans is not well known at all.

We are up to 15 entries, which is probably not quite enough for this contest to go ahead, ideally we want at least 5 more to get the go ahead. Please send your entry as we enter the final hour of confirmations!

Hi everyone,

Having checked with the forum moderators it has been recommended to me that the confirmation window be extended due to other forum contests happening at the same time at the moment across the forum (BJSC 137 & Unknown Pleasures). Those who have submitted an entry will still be valid, unless of course anyone wishes to reconfirm something else. Hopefully the number of participants can exceed 20 in due course, it’s only a few short anyway.

Apologies to those who were hoping that this contest would begin this week and thank you for understanding.

Please share the link to the thread with anyone who you think may wish to take part but hasn’t yet confirmed something (list in OP).

I'll have a think. I don't watch movies often so its hard to grasp anything. Its explicitly movies and not tv shows?

I did put forward a TV shows theme for the contest but it was rejected.
