UKMIX 2016 Tournament - (Winner: Sia - Cheap Thrills)

Moderators: tdc2000, Spartan

Hello!

This is a tournament that involves your input. It would be nice if we could get at least eight people to participate, but the idea is that each person chooses eight songs and from those songs we create a single elimination tournament like this:
http://challonge.com/2013popstop

I will be put everything into the challonge bracket so we can track the match-ups.

The rules:

1. There is no limit on the number of participants. The number of rounds is subject to the number of participants. Otherwise, we will go through a cycle of preliminaries (if necessary), quarter-finals, sweet sixteen, semi-finals, final four, and championship. Rounds will last 24-48 hours. I will post the full bracket at Challonge

2. Vote for the song you most prefer of the two songs listed. One vote for each battle per person. You are not required to vote on each battle. You do not have to submit songs to be able to vote.

3. In the first round, ties will be broken by higher bracket number. For subsequent rounds, ties will be broken first by total cumulative vote, including previous rounds. Keep this in mind when you rank your songs. When you list your songs, please put them in order from 1-8, so that this rule may be applied.

I love this tournament because I learn of new songs. If this is successful, I would like to run a March Madness tournament of all newer songs. For this competition, it will just be songs of 2016 that made your year>

I will list my eight songs in the next post. Anyone who would like to participate please do the same. You cannot use the same song as a song already previsouly submitted by someone else. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the thread. You have until November 27th to submit your choices. I figure three weeks is enough time to generate interest.

(I hope people participate and this doesn't die in a sea of apathy.) :P

Do the songs have to be official singles or just any songs which where released in 2016 (which would include album tracks as well)?

Oh, nice - that's 8 contributors :D

There isn't a limit on contributors if other people want to put in their songs.

Does anyone know if there is a way for me to tag the contributors to know when we start?
