SongQuest III Seven Sensational Seasons Another season of Celtic football is upon us. With the Hoops' European adventures already underway and the domestic campaign just around the corner, it's time to launch the next edition of SongQuest. Theme As the title suggests, this SQ is going to celebrate a selection of some of the most memorable seasons in the club's history. Although we could go all the way back, have decided to set this as a post-Jock Stein era comp. When the Round is announced you can pick any song by any artist of any genre, so long as that song was originally released in the 2 years of the season in question. So for example, say it was for the Lisbon Lions season (which was the very first one off SQ's some aulder heids may recall), you could enter any song that had been originally released in either 1966 or 1967. It doesnt have to be just from July through to May either. Those 2 years will suffice. Hope that makes sense, but if not sure by all means feel free to ask. There are obviously different reasons why a season may be special. It can be about unquestionable dominance throughout, it could be a season full of memories and nostalgia, or it could all come down to one defining moment. What will those seasons be? Format The format for this season will also be a little bit different. Let's just say there was a little bit of inspiration taken from the World Cup, lol. Instead of being a gradual stage by stage process of elimination, this comp will be divided in to 2 Stages: The Group Stage and the Knockout Stage. The Group Stage So, just like in the World Cup where a disappointing first round may be just to clear the cobwebs, so to soeak, in this comp everyone will be divided up into Groups and will go through 3 Rounds of songs, and each compete in a mini league over those 3 songs to determine who progresses. So noone will be eliminated until 3 Rounds have been completed. This means that one bad early round may not necessarily be fatal. At which point, at least the top 2 from each Group will progress to the knock out stage. There may be more, depending on numbers that sign up, there may be Wild Card spots, but will get to that once know the size of the Groups for certain. So, irrespective of how many enter at the start, after the 3 Rounds, this will be where the cut is made and, at least half the field will be eliminated at the one time. The Knock Out Stage Pretty sure everyone can figure out what happens here, lol. When Am looking to post the First Round songs on Thursday or Friday. Will post the First Round season at some point this weekend, at which time people can start sending in entries, but there will be at least 4 days for people to put their proverbial thinking caps on. However, for now just putting this out there, to put the word out and invite people to be part of this. Why Be Involved? Why Not? What else have you got going on when on here anyhow? lol. It's always a good bit of banter, and along with the regular names, new and returning players are always very welcome to join in. The invitation is open to all!
