This is an 80's song geeklist contest to win GG.

UPDATE
We have a winner!!!

With 38 votes at the time of the tally, Opie wins the contest for his entry of Guillotine for the song Another One Bites the Dust! He gets 10.54 GG (the additional amount for those who donated - thank you!).

I hope everyone enjoyed this. I'd love to hear if anyone has any suggestions on how to make this better...I'm thinking of doing it again.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Here's how to play:

Each geeklist item will be a game which you think is best associated with an 80's song. However, you don't get to choose your own song...the person who posts before you does!

The Rules:

In other words, each geeklist item will have two parts:

1. The first will be the game you choose for the 80's song you are given.
2. The second will be the song for the next person to choose a game for.
3. One entry per person.
4. The winner will be the one with the most thumbs. Ties will be broken by me.
5. Songs chosen must have been released between 1/1/80 and 12/31/89.

For example, the post before person A gives the song 'Thriller' as the next item on the list. Person A posts their entry as Werewolf and states the next song is 'Safety Dance'. Person B, who is posting next, will have to post a game they feel best relates to 'Safety Dance'.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Be creative with the posts! Remember the one with the most thumbs is the winner. Feel free to link to the songs as well - not everyone may know your song.

The Prize:

The winner will receive 10 GG from myself. Any GG donated to this list will be added to the prize money.

The Dates:

The contest starts now and goes until Saturday, March 14, 2009 Midnight EST.

Winners will be announced by the next day.

Good luck to all! Please thumb this list to get more attention to it.


Now, lets get things started. The first song is Wake Me Up Before You Go Go! by Wham! cool

Well it's not steel but at least it is a metal (and I bet you didn't know the game )

The next one:
I think one of the most influential and overlooked bands of the 80s "The Sisters of Mercy", from a real masterpiece of goth "Floodland", the song "Lucretia, my reflection".

..aka Oblivious. Doubly appropriate since the game is a word association game from one player to the next.

Next song: Joe le Taxi, by Vanessa Paradis.
The inclusion of a Peruvian singer in the lyrics gives a nice link back to Aztec Camera, just for completeness!
