    Congrats to Biggie, who won the previous round with his rendition of Freaks and Geeks.

    For this round's theme, we turn to a noble knight:

    Show Hide
    [​IMG]

    Like our noble knight, the titles of the songs we'll be singing will not actually show up in their respective work. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, our theme will be

    NON APPEARING TITLES

    Basically, any song where the title of the song does not actually show up in the lyrics is permitted. Here's a more in-depth explanation (as well as a place to get ideas).

    For the sake of the competition, I'm going to permit songs that:
    - have part of the song title in the lyrics but not the whole thing
    - have a different form of the song title in the lyrics


    Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 PM on Monday, August 15. Songs can be reserved for up to 72 hours in advance before they are available to others.

    It's not like anyone would reserve it anyway, but I'm doing "far from comfort" by "twothirtyeight". I love that song.

    God damn you people, took three of my choices (Iris, Basket Case, Good Riddance)

    Therefore, I will tentatively reserve Uprising by Muse

    WaterBomb, seeing as my Good Riddance selection was approved, you can take Basket Case if you want it. I'd only do it as a bonus track, if at all.

    I almost feel as though I'm compelled to do Notorious B.I.G - Juicy. It'll either be that or UGK ft Outkast - International Players Anthem. Thoughts?
