BCB 80s Cup - get your lists in!

Postby Penk! » 28 Jan 2019, 08:27

Hi BCB!

After the popular 90s and 70s Cups recently we* have decided to complete the set and run an 80s Cup.

We did it once before and it was a roaring success and a lot of fun, so please do sign up.

Ideally we can make it another Cup with a group stage, so that everyone gets the chance to have a few of their songs picked. So a desirable number is somewhere between 24-32 players.

New to the board, want to know the deal? You send in a set number of songs with the rules being that they must have been recorded and released in the 1980s (some exceptions permissible for songs recorded in 1979 and first released in 1980, but let's not get too bogged down in the details just yet).
Those songs are then pitted one-on-one against songs picked by other posters in your group, and the board votes for their favourite. The song with the most votes after a set period wins; the poster with the most points after all the songs have been matched advances from their group to the final stage.

Anything you don't understand, just ask!

*the people

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
