The William Bell is too well known. It's a huge soul classic.
But have many of us DDDrs heard it? The tournament's about introducing us to songs we haven't heard before or getting us to love some songs we haven't been giving enough attention yet.
Pure Reason Revolution - ii.) Apogee iii.) Requiem for Lovers
i am already grateful to you for introducing me to PRR in the first song tournament... hopefully this time they'll earn a few more new fans, too.
That's my intention.
Although I do feel a little lame for repping them whenever I get the chance.
It's fine. Repetion is the key.
how strict are the rules for commenting on/criticizing songs?
I don't think there are any proper rules. People are allowed to say what they think about the songs, as long as they aren't offending anyone directly. To put it shortly, keep on posting your way and be honest.
I'll edit the current nominations into the frontpage, I'm still expecting many people to join the tourney though.
