This game was invented on a rainy day when driving back from Cornwall. My parents were talking about themed tapes they used to make when bored. We then made a game of naming as many songs we could on a theme. We made a rule of coming up with 20 songs - a rough estimate of the number of songs you can get on a CD - before moving onto the next album.
Now each week, the aim of this wiki s to make a definitive themed album of 20 songs. Participants add their songs to the album page and get points for doing so. If an album goes over 20, then a poll will be put up so as to determine the favourites.
Future Album ideas can be listed here: Album Contest Suggestions

Rules:
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> Songs that do not fit the album title will not be added
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> All songs must be famous enough for the lyrics to turn up on a Google search
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> Only 5 songs to be submitted by the same artist
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> Covers can't be accepted
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> Judges' decision is final

Scoring:
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> 1 point for naming a song
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> 2 points for each song included on the final album
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> Points gained in each round multiplied by the number of multiples of 10 reached in total (bonus points excluded)
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> 4 bonus points for submitting the most songs
<img:stuff/cd_bull1.gif> 4 bonus points handed out for particularly clever songs (at judges discretion)

2006-10-07 [iippo]: A fantastic idea. May I just add myself to the participants list?

2006-10-07 [Estantia]: tht q goes for me too.

2006-10-07 [abandonedhouse7 7]: Ditto that and that ^.^

2006-10-07 [shotokan_gal]: Ooh interesting ^^

2006-10-08 [BlackDragon]: I would like to join. Added some songs.. Hope its right =P

2006-10-08 [Estantia]: the october one's probably what we're meant to be doing...

2006-10-08 [BlackDragon]: um.. I mixed them up.. ><
Guess you aren't supposed to do such things at 4am ^^;;

2006-10-08 [Estantia]: 4a....ok sleep!

2006-10-08 [BlackDragon]: I know, I went to bed at 5am.. =p

2006-10-08 [iippo]: I thought everyone adds one song per album... o.O

2006-10-08 [BlackDragon]: Hmm...

2006-10-08 [BlackDragon]: Ah well.. take away them if you so wish. Maybe make the rules a bit more clear [ArchangelGabriel]? =/

2006-10-08 [iippo]: Yeah, a lot of confusion going on. o.O

2006-10-08 [ArchangelGabriel]: Sorry, it was just a quick job. Please add your songs to the album and at the end of the month I'll total up the points. Add as many songs as you like. Which rules would you like making clearer? i was kinda in a hurry to get it done :P

2006-10-08 [ArchangelGabriel]: BTW, i'm not happy with the scoring, does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe double points if it reaches 20 and triple for thirty ETC. Any ideas are appreciated..

2006-10-08 [Estantia]: sounds interesting

2006-10-08 [ArchangelGabriel]: Wow, at this rate i'm going to have to make it weekly :P

2006-10-08 [Shadowsoul]: can i be a judge?

2006-10-08 [Sebhar]: Can I join?

2006-10-09 [Lady of Lore]: ooh! this looks like fun!

2006-10-09 [ArchangelGabriel]: Sure thing, just add to the current album and when it's closed at the end of the month, I'll add your names and the number of points scored.

Hmmm... At the moment there isn't anything to judge. I thought I'd have a trial month see how things go. Any suggestions are welcome...

2006-10-09 [ArchangelGabriel]: Decided that as it's proving reasonably popular, I'll make it a weekly occurrence ^_^ Also, the pointing system has been updated. Please feel free to start updating next weeks album as well

2006-10-09 [ArchangelGabriel]: It's a little grey but i think the banner and divider will do for now..

2006-10-09 [ArchangelGabriel]: Oh, one more thing, I'm thinking of handing out bonus points at the judges discretion. They'll go to any songs to which the judge thinks 'ha, i like that one :P' For example grease lighting in weather. What do people think of the idea?

2006-10-09 [abandonedhouse7 7]: That's great! ^.^

2006-10-09 [BlackDragon]: Hmm.. Gregorian and Gregorian Chants do covers.. Should I write the original artist names instead? I've heard most original ones.

2006-10-09 [ArchangelGabriel]: original artist names are best yeah....

2006-10-10 [BlackDragon]: okay.. ^^;;

2006-10-12 [ArchangelGabriel]: Only 2 more days on weather for you four people who haven't taken par to to do so ;)

2006-10-18 [Sebhar]: I've attacked it with a vengeance. Is there a way to suggest topics?

2006-10-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: there willl be, i've just had a bad week of homework :P we get a week of school starting tomorrow so i'll get everything sorted then.. Don't panic, i'll get round to it ;)

2006-10-19 [Sebhar]: Thanks ^_^ I've got some ideas.. though I'm sure they've occurred to you already.

2006-10-19 [ArchangelGabriel]: Album Contest Suggestions for suggesting new albums and Album: Weather (Voting) to vote on the album that closed saturday. By the way, the new album may be a little hard, i'll try and choose somethign a little easier for next week.

2006-10-20 [Sebhar]: Heehee... numbers... sounds delicious!

2006-10-20 [ArchangelGabriel]: Scrap that idea! You're finding it too easy. the album for the 11th of november is going to have to be extra hard then :P

2006-10-30 [Yoruno]: Wow... I want to participate... how can I be included? ^^

2006-11-03 [ArchangelGabriel]: Just think of a song and add it to the album, then when voting begins, your name will be added to the participants..
