A sort of Challenge Cup is what I'd like to see.

Groups of 3 (for example) - each player plays one song against the other. Winner goes through to the next round of groups.

Logistical nightmare I know.

A competition of songs no more than 30 seconds in length is all I have time for these days.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Great idea. 50 songs an entrant.

I know it would be pretty far down most people's list of preferences, but I think a Covers Cup would be interesting.

The challenge cup is too complicated for my old brain,

I voted for Ladies' and 50's-60's (the latter is meant to be pre-Beatles, so roughly 1950-1963, I suppose?)


Ooohh... and Loki's idea of a cover's cup would be fab!

Yeah, the Covers Cup would get my vote, too.

OK, I added the Covers Cup to the list.... Sounds like a good idea too!

Good.

Come to think of it, I'd be in for the 60's yet again and synth/electronica too.

The '60s have been done to death on here. Let's go with one of the more novel suggestions.

I put forward an idea for a Weird Cup a while ago, but failing that, I'd prefer a genre cup to a decades one.
But I (or one of my aliases) would have a bash at anything on there except the 70s (oog), Yacht Rock (whatever that is) and electronics/synth (too broad - wouild it be synths/electronic instruments only or anything incorporating at least one Moog/mellootron/theremin?
And is the, ahem, Ladies cup just about female vocalists, or all-female bands?

There used to be a Bizarro Cup a few years ago which was all bout bad taste. Really enjoyed that one but the Captain went AWOL and the Cup disappeared.

Is the mere idea deemed sexist? :?

I'd say female singers/frontwomen and/or female musicians/composers.
All-female bands would narrow it down to little more than half a dozen (although the resident obscurity buffs would undoubtedly dig up loads more).

Well, I have stuff by more than a couple of dozen, from the 70s on, but what I was thinking of was all-girl groups, which of course includes vocal groups and choirs.

The thought of a Weird Cup still interests me, but I'm always so disappointed by the voting in these competitions. I'd probably do another 60's Cup, anyway.

This week I watched Fight Club while commuting. From now on, the term man boobs will always conjure up the character played by Meat Loaf in my mind.

Which isn't a bad thing, really. :P
