Do we want to do a combined Motown and stax tourney or do a 64 bracket tourney for each then have a stax champion vs Motown champion final? Both can run concurrently.

why not just do a soul music tourney?

This fired the initial idea.

An all encompassing soul music tourney sounds daunting just to think about parameters.

And here's a Stax comp with 50 tracks.

https://www.amazon.com/Stax-50th-Anniversary-Celebration-Box/dp/B000KP62UM

It'd be nice to cap it at 128 tracks. Anyone have any ideas/feedback before I start the prep?

I think there should be some sort of limit to how many songs from a single artist you can pick. Pretty easy to just pick a bunch of Otis Redding and have a fairly competitive team.

I say that covers can most certainly be included along with the original version, if need be.

I'd say make sure you have a youtube link or something so people can sample the songs maybe?

I thought with March Madness and Gigaton we'd all be tied up till mid to late April.

I have another quick idea that won't take long. Maybe 3 weeks at most.

There probably won't be a march madness this year. I'd like for us to sit on Gigaton for a while before we have another.

Started a James Bond Tourney for JB themes and related music. To make up numbers I've got the 2 Radiohead submissions in a playoff.

So now that LV quit again mid-tourney, can we do something else? Preferably something without the huge amount of awful songs that this Billboard tournament was stacked with.

Like "We Are the Champions," the stupidest and worst song of all time
