THE RULES

~~Entry URLs to be posted onto this thread from the Amiright site

~~Entries must conform to both the topic and genre specifications...if in doubt, ask.

~~On December 7th entries close and voting begins.

~~Vote by replying to voting thread with your five favorites in order: 
Top choice gets 5 points, next gets 4 points and so on to 1 point for your fifth favourite.

~~You're not allowed to vote for your own song.

~~Voting continues until the 21st of December, 2009.

~~By entering, you are agreeing to read and comment on all the other entries and vote.

~~Anyone who enters but does not both comment on all entries and vote by the deadline is disqualified and may not participate in the next event.

~~If you miss a submission deadline, you will not be entered in that event, but WILL be allowed to enter the next event.
However, there will STILL be an expectation that you comment and vote in the event you are not participating in, unless you have a valid reason for not being able to.

~Rule changes may be suggested by any participant in their entry post.  Changes are made only when a majority of that event's voters specify a "yes" vote along with their contest votes.

SCORING: Unlike PAOTY, scores for each Decathlon event are not cumulative. The winner of each event gets 9 Decathlon points, 2nd gets 8 and so on. This should make the contest very close throughout the next 20 weeks.
A Leaderboard will be posted after the first event

HAVE FUN!!!!!!

Maybe a mass PM campaign will roust the others from their parodic slumber? Or perhaps just showing up at their front door with a hand-written petition and a SLEDGEHAMMER will do the trick.

So just to clarify, "Christmas music" can be any song about Christmas AND traditional jingles? Or is it just the former? I need to hear these words!

Yup.... Both!

And I think that would be a good idea but I don't want to pay the cash needed to travel the world in an airplane with a sledgehammer (Although good thinking for this round)

The Elven Princess likes Christmas tunes? So do I! I'll probably do one about island vacationing gone wrong "Island Fright" to "Silent Night". If not, I might try to parody "Winter Party" by Breakerz. Not sure about the theme to that one though.

Once I get my Genre Hero parody done, I'll begin work on "Can't Find My Freakin' Luggage, Man!" to the tune of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" which is my favourite Xmas carol EVER, BTW.

If my idea doesn't work out, I'll try something by Trans-Siberian Orchestra, possibly "An Angel Came Down".

Sorry Jack... But this one doesn't work for the contest because "Electric Avenue" is a Reggae song and not a Christmas Song the MUSIC GENRE is Christmas not the topic...

What if I write more than one vacation/travel parody...to more than one Christmas song?  Can I enter them all, just so we have more songs to vote on?  ;)

I don't think that would work because what if yours were better than ours and the podium was nothing but Arwen parodies... I don't think that would be fair

But write them anyways, because it's always great to read Arwen parodies!
