    It's that time again!

    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.

    I have reposted the instructions below, but I have made one change to how submissions will work.

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

    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 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.

    I love this tournament because I learn of new songs!

    To participate, please send me a list of 14 songs that you have enjoyed over the last three months. (This is a change from the previous tournament, so that the people who come up with songs last aren't disadvantaged.) I will then randomize the order in which the submissions came in. Only the first 8 non-matching songs will be used.

    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. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the thread. You have until March 5th to submit your choices. I figure three weeks is enough time to generate interest.

    Hopefully, the turnout will be even bigger than the last one

    not sure I understand - why nominate 14 songs if you only take 8?

    Because you might pick the same songs as other people when you submit them, and so I will need to use the next items on your list.

    BY the way, if you change your mind on the songs in your list, you can always resubmit up until March 5th. I've gotten a few entries, but if say, Adele, had a surprise release on March 3 (please god let this happen) and you wanted to add it, you can update your list if you like.

    So far, there are still only five submissions.

    There are less than two weeks left.

    Still. :-?

    Hopefully we will get more submissions between now and then. Perhaps people preferred to submit on the thread. :/

    You have five days!

    Just to be clear they don't have to just be released in the first three months of 2017? Because I think I'd be having trouble picking 8 that someone else hasn't already lol.

    No, they don't have to be released this year

    There's only five submissions, so you probably have a good chance of getting all your picks.

    This is similar to my lastfm game, I guess it will be redundant now

    I think we should post our songs in this thread so people don't duplicate songs.

    I know I'm naughty but I'm posting mine here:

    Jamiroquai - Automaton
    Anastacia - I'm Outta Love
    The Beach Boys - That's Not Me
    Nelly Furtado - Pipe Dreams
    The Beach Boys - Surf's Up
    Judee Sill - The Kiss
    Paul Simon - St. Judy's Comet
    Morten Harket - Scared of Heights
    The Moody Blues - Legend Of A Mind
    Paul Simon - Take Me to the Mardi Gras
    Michael Franks - B'wana-He No Home
    Jamiroquai - Too Young to Die
    Goldfrapp - Anymore
    Jamiroquai - Seven Days in Sunny June

    New and old songs right? I'll add links later. Boldes are ones are songs which can be classed as "new".

    Thanks for posting. I will include your songs, and let you know if there are any duplicates.

    I won't be starting this until tomorrow morning, so you people have another 10 hours or so to submit songs.

    I randomized the list of people submitting songs. There ended up being 9 of us, so slightly down from last time. So maybe I will just have people post their songs in the future.

    Preliminary Round

    Since we have 72 songs, we need 8 matches to get us down to 64. We will get to the First Round on Thursday.

    I will post 4 contests a day until the tournament is over! While seed number determines the tie, we have a couple matches where the seed is the same, and there's not really a way around that, so if two of the same seed tie in this round, we'll cross the bridge when we come to it

    Matches:

    DJ Snake & Justin Bieber - Let Me Love You (Affillate-8) vs.
    Michael Buble - Nobody But Me (Goldmoney-8)

    Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake - True Colors (Goldmoney-7) vs.
    Norma Jean Martine - No Gold (SilentDream-8)

    Marian Hill - Down (cheapthrills-7) vs.
    Ray Blk - My Hood (bluecherry-8)

    Kylie Minogue - Got to Be Certain (carbon-7) vs.
    Lady Gaga - John Wayne(Erotica-8)
