Should sample-featuring songs enter this competition?

Poll ended at Sat Sep 24, 2016 12:34 am

They should be eligible, as long as the sampled song is not a UK/US top 40 hit

It depends on several factors, I'd rather each case was treated individually and resolved with a poll

No, definitely not

Wow! I expected to become last or at least bottom 5! - #18 in a strong month is more what I could have asked for! I really wanted to take an artist from the home city of my Polish family. Thank you for having voted for Poland!

Congratulations to heppolo! It was a really great entry and the victory is well-deserved!

I am also glad that Germany, Sweden & Canada did so well.

Congratulations to @heppolo for winning this month! :D
Also, happy that @Tansike took Germany to #2. Didn't especially like both songs but glad they scored so high.
Thank you to the voters for Switzerland. :D

Well done, heppolo! Good song, not that left-field in my opinion, but certainly not one you'd expect to win this contest! By quite a margin as well!

I was pretty much amazed with Japan and South Africa, I think they both deserved better.
#19 for Greece was slightly lower than I expected to be honest, but then again there were lots of good entries and the competition was tough. Thanks for the votes anyway.
The track I have in mind for October will probably have the same fate, but I've wanted to enter it for absolutely ages, so I don't mind really.
You can expect the new thread sometime tomorrow, probably rather early in the day.

Big congrats to heppolo, a well-deserved victory. I didn't like this month as much as most of you did, I think there were a few really good songs- And it's nice to see Germany back in the top 5 (though I don't like Faun that much)
Thought that was a good solution hanging with the raisin girls

Congrats to Finland - that was my favourite song, just love the dream pop vibe it had!

I was surprised to have flopped to be honest, that song is such a current sounding pop song! :lol: Going to go for something slightly different next!

Thanks for all the voters for Jordan. I thought the song had a bit of a 'We Found Love' kinda anthemic vibe to it.

Congrats heppolo. My 12pts went to Denmark, that was a bop. Switzerland sounded a little like The Presets. Enjoyed South Korea's too.

Also, the act for UK (LOWES), the clothing store here kept coming to mind lol. "polo shirts! 20% off! AT LOWES" :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzLjrqlQ8Q8
