    3rd Annual Summertime Madness Tournament

    All that is needed to participate is to 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.

    In the March madness tournament earlier this year, @GaGarazzi won with Vanessa Paradis' L'Incendie. Let's see who prevails in the tournament this year!

    Rules from previous Madness tournament:

    -----
    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!
    ----

    You cannot use the same song as a song already submitted in previous tournaments:

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the thread. You have until 6AM Mountain Time on September 9th 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!

    Previous participants have been tagged in the spoiler:

    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.

    Was hoping to get an 8th to make it an even 64 songs, but this is a good mix. I just need to set up the bracket and then will post the first set of the tournament.

    Preliminary Round - Set 1

    So we will have six preliminary rounds before we get into the Top 32 - the good news is that with 7 participants, that means that everyone's 1st choice has already moved on past these preliminary rounds!

    Choose one winner of each match. The songs with the most votes move on to the next round. In the event of a tie, for this round, the tiebreaker is the seed # assigned.

    Tadhg Daly - Stuck In The Middle (heppolo-5) vs.
    Will Young - All The Songs (Erotica-3)

    Zazie - L'essenciel (GaGarazzi-5) vs.
    Mandrage - Františkovy Lázně (trebor-7)

    Clio - T'as vu (heppolo-3) vs.
    Katy Perry - Never Really Over (Affillate-7)

    Thelma Plum - Better In Blak (heppolo-4) vs.
    Goldfrapp - Ocean (GaGarazzi-6)
