Hello!

Despacito is the song of the summer according to Billboard, but is it UKMix's? :lol:

Welcome back to tournament season. This is where each participant submits eights songs and they are entered into a tournament to be crowned the UK Mix song of the summer :) I will now copy and paste from the March Madness competition because I am lazy. :)

-----
For those of you new to this, we hosted a 2016 tournament in which all participants submitted eight songs, and then went against each other in head to head competition.

This is a tournament that involves your input. Each person submits eight songs and from those songs we create a single elimination tournament like this:
http://challonge.com/ukmix2016

I love this tournament because I learn of new songs! :)
----
In the last tournament, I had people PM eight songs, but I think that chilled the participation, so please post your eight choices here. Please make sure you rank your songs. Keep in mind that in the preliminary rounds, the song with the higher ranking moves on in case of a tie.

You cannot use the same song as a song already previously submitted in the UKMix 2016 tournament. or the March Madness Tournametn If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the thread. You have until 6AM Mountain Time on September 11th to submit your choices. I am hopeful that's enough time to generate interest.

I will be put everything into the challonge bracket so we can track the match-ups. Rules for the tournament in the next post!

Hopefully, the turnout will be bigger than the last one :)

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 seed 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.

Well, the idea is to select eight songs that made your summer. But it doesn't have to be from 2017.

I don't really have a "song of the summer" but my most played songs from the last 30 days which aren't in any other survivor right now (I don't think), 1 song per artist, hope this is OK. :D

1 Larkin Grimm - Without a Body or a Numb and Useless Mind
2 Glen Campbell - Turn Around, Look At Me
3 The Beach Boys - Here Today
4 Goldfrapp - Ooh La La
5 Jim Reeves - Welcome to My World
6 Everything Everything - Distant Past
7 Jeff Lynne - Stormy Weather
8 Gossip - Casualties of War

This excellent song was in the March Madness tournament so it's not eligible, but I don't think it matters because I am only taking the top 8 for everyone and you put this at #9 :)

7. Cheat Codes ft. Demi Lovato - No Promises
8. Lady Gaga - The Cure
9. Katy Perry - Roulette
10. Rita Ora - Your Song

Let me know if any of these have been done, I had a quick look at the March thread just to see when it started, all these songs are fairly recent.
Thanks for submitting. :) These are all eligible, but like Carbon, I am only taking the top 8, so I will not be using the Katy and Rita entries unless you want to edit the top 8 to include them. Also, if you can provide links for your songs, it would make it easier when I start the brackets.
