Win 150 FriH$ - My Sound Teaser Competition.





Captain Fertile
This may appear a little complex when written down formally like this but it is really easy and fun to play once you try.

What to do:
1) Follow this link and listen to the exclusive .mp3 (file size 1.89mb) for this competition.

2) There are 15 intros to well known musical tracks on the .mp3 file.

3) I have indicated the beginning and ending of each track with special gunshots and ricochet sounds to help separate each track for you (you'll know 'em when you hear 'em).

4) Send me a Private Message when you have the track titles AND the artists. You should clearly indicate the track number, title and artist name for each track. You will get 1 point each for the correct title and the correct artist making a total of 30 possible points.

OR

Send me PM with as many as you think you might know.

Please remember to CLEARLY indicate all the information as stated above. A post on this thread to let me know you have PMed me may help in the event of any PMs going astray.

5) When I receive entries I will post stating how many points your entry got or if it got all 30 I will post that you have won and send the Frih$ to you right away.

6) An entrant can enter as many times as possible but may only enter again once I have posted on this thread stating the total points an entrant has attained. If you post before this your latest entry will be ignored.

7) NEW RULE! In the event of no-one getting all 30 after the competition has been running for a while the winner will be the first person who PMed me with the highest number of points.

The Rules:
1) My decision is final! Any errors on my part cannot be changed once a judging decision has been made.
2) The artists must be the artist on the version of the track I have placed on the .mp3 file. This may be the original artist in some cases but not always.
3) I will allow slight errors in title or artists as long as it is clear that you meant the correct answer.
4) Where more than one winning PM is received, the first PM received in my Inbox will be the outright winner.
5) The track intros may be any length, can be from any era and may be from just about ANY genre of music so a wide musical knowledge is a distinct advantage.
6) This is a fun competition so don’t take it too seriously.
7) While I live in the UK I have searched for tracks the majority of FriHost members should be able to work out, maybe with a little extra effort in some cases.


The Prize:
150 FriH$ for the first person to PM me with ALL the correct song titles and artists – all 30 points.

Notes:
This took me some effort and time to produce so any donations would be welcome for the next round(s) (if you all want one after this round) unless you would be willing to play for less FriH$ next time.

Please post on this thread any problems, feedback on prizes for the next round or just to state how difficult or easy you found the competition. The info would be very helpful in gauging tracks for any further rounds of the competition.

I hope you all enjoy it and have some fun – GOOD LUCK!

Its a tricky competition but certainly possible. I'm sure there are difficult and easy ones in there whichever side of the Atlantic you come from. Just give it a try.

I'm sorry to hear that. The competition may be aimed more at the older members of the forum plus I am kind of stuck in the 1980's where music is concerned but tried not to let that affect me too much when producing this.

After Jotting them down... I definately without a doubt have 11.... 10 is bugging the hell out of me... and I've never heard 13 or 14. I'll give it a couple more listens but im about ready to give up =P

I got your PM.

Wow! well done, you got 24 points. Good try indeed. In fact you got just about all the tunes I thought would be the toughest. So well done, if no-one gets all 30 points yours wikll be a tough score to beat.

Wow, nice mix there. And I love these kinds of competitions. Though, I just know a few of these...

Thanks, it took me a while to produce the .mp3 for the competition, but I don't mind if people like it and join in.

Dont worry about only knowing a few, if the is another round it could be anything in there. Just join in and have some fun.
