    Default Season 472 - Games and Toys

    Welcome to Season 472!

    This week let's play songs about games and toys. These can be for example football anthems, soundtrack songs from video games or computer games, olympics theme songs or songs from musical 'Chess'...

    And toys? Of course, songs about dolls and teddy bears, but you can interpret the theme metaphorically, if you like - grown-ups have toys like cars, diamonds and guitar pedals.

    Bands and songwriters with games or toys in their name are legit, too.

    Original songs, collaborations and instrumentals are most welcome.

    Song limit: 1 song per day or 8 songs per Season.

    - Season starts Sunday, February 28th at 00:00 Hawaii time, and ends Sunday, March 7th at 12 PM Hawaii time.
    - Please mention in the video that it's for Season 472

    Prize: Finnish miniature wooden toys.

    I'll put my comments on YouTube and don't duplicate them here.

    Please remember that the very photogenic Season 471 has still a day to go and Steve has abandoned the song limit.

    Nice theme!

    What it the stance on mind games?
    A lot of songs with the word "game" In the title are more about different kinds of games than those you will play for sports or at a table. More like games of life or love or something like that.

    Slightly worried by the suggestion of grown-ups’ toys! Especially if props are used!
    Thanks for hosting Ylle - should be an interesting week!

    Great idea for a theme, Ylle ... and you have given us a lot of scope; looking forward to finding some suitable songs!

    Songs about mind games (and perhaps even about wicked games) are welcome.

    Thank you Ylle! And thanks to Mikkel for asking about mind games. I'd just recorded this when I saw his question. I was hoping Ylle would answer in the affirmative.

    All this talk of grown up toys has me a bit confused...I'm assuming people are talking about Advanced Scrabble where you can only make 7 letter words, or 1000 piece Airfix modelling kits of 14th century barquentine sailing ships........stuff like that.
