    SongQuest: Evolution

    Time for a new experiment in SongQuest.

    This time out the format that will change, including aspects and Round themes unlike anything seen before in SQ or BotB.

    Some elements will be familiar to you all but as the competition continues there will be changes and a brand new process of elimination to contend with.

    In addition to this, please be aware that will be trying to make this competition move on as smoothly and swiftly as possible, with 3 day cycles once the competition starts.

    1 day to submit a song.
    2 days to vote.

    Repeat.

    That is the plan.

    Rounds that go over a weekend however, may be potentially extended by a day, but will see how that goes as things proceed.

    And to make it easier for you all, no matter what you will never have to vote for any more than 6 songs in any given round.

    Anyone new to SongQuest are always very warmly welcomed along with the usual suspects.

    Are you up to the challenge?​

    Round 1 Theme

    As above, people still have until Sunday to sign up for this.

    For those that have signed up, you can start sending me your Round 1 Song selections.

    Songs Where the Title is Not featured in the Lyrics

    As in you can nominate any song where the title of the song is not included (in part or in full), in the lyrics.

    Taking this one out of contention straight away: Bohemian Rhapsody is a perfect example of this.

    Time to Get the Thinking caps on.

    And @Scotia, that means you too, lol ​
