Subject: Artistry 2 Round 33 (ELO) Enter by 10/07/14

Written By: ThaConqueror on 09/24/14 at 1:05 am

Mr Blue Sky is telling us that it's time for the Electric Light Orchestra round!

Youtube search for "Electric Light Orchestra"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artistry Rules For Newcomers:
- If one wishes to enter (entry in all rounds is not compulsory), entry must be written (or selected from back catalog) within two weeks of the posting of the entry thread
- Voting runs during the same two-week period as the next entry thread, so organise your time wisely
- All participants must comment on all entrants and vote by the deadline.  Failure to vote will forfeit all points from that round, but it won't disqualify you from participating in the next round
- Voting will take place by replying to the appropriate voting thread
- If a person withdraws from an Artistry Round prior to the end of a round, all entrants who voted for that person's entry will be permitted to pick one new song to earn a bonus point, all other songs will be realigned accordingly.  There will be no penalty on those who don't change their vote.
- Once a vote is posted, it cannot be changed UNLESS rule 3 applies OR there was a double-vote by accident.
- Late entries will be accepted until the 1st vote has been posted.
- The deadline is a strict deadline, the moment the date has reached the day after the deadline, no votes will count, this is to reduce last minute voting, or sympathy/favoritism towards different entrants.

Coming at a time...a parody of "Don't Bring Me Down" about an overabundance of "grittiness" and "realism" in games and films and stuff. Stay tuned for "Real Isn't Brown"!

That would scan better in the chorus as "I Got So Stoned".

This'll be fun. If folks are hard-pressed for a track, you can also use Jeff Lynne's solo tracks (because, let's face it, Jeff Lynne WAS ELO).

I think I'm going to do a parody of "Telephone Line". Still trying to get a good concept.

Maybe you can keep the basic song title but just twist the lyrics into commentary about today's technology...particularly the I-phone6.
