Anyway, congratulations to me :P

ODF, you can host if you want, but since you did it last time you can pass it on to John if you'd like.

Certainly :) The theme for this round is dating yourself - submit a song from the year you were born! (Bonus no-points if it hit the charts in your birth month!) Please have your entries submitted by the morning of Monday, Jul. 11th, Pacific time!

I'm not sure if I know any songs from my birth year. :?

Does a cover released in the right year still count, if the original was from earlier?

Go look at the charts! You'll see things you recognise. I'd bet the cover would count.

Or a cover that didn't come out that year, but it's a cover of a song from my birth year?

You underestimate how sheltered my childhood was.

(Yeah, I should be able to find something, though. It's an opportunity to find music I haven't heard before. Thanks for the clarifications about covers, john. :) )

Wow, thanks!

I actually had an idea for the next round already: mashups! Send me anything that's two different songs edited together into one cohesive piece of music. Submissions will be enumerated after the 25th of July.

Does it have to be exactly two songs or can it use more than that? Also, congrats!

All right, signups for Mashup Mafia are finished, if you did get a role PM, let me know.

Setup details
This is an open setup with the following role names in it: Sample role PM
You are [role name] and you are vanilla town. You win when the best song is selected from the submissions.
Voting
You may vote by sending the mod a list of the roles organised in descending order of awesomeness. The player with the most votes is declared the winner at the end of the day.
Deadlines
Day 1 lasts until the 2nd of August. During the day, you may talk in thread, but you don't have to. Any private chats are night chats.
